Hilo
Hawaii Volcanoes National Park Rating: 5+ out of 5+
We enjoyed seeing it, but no lava was flowing the day we were there. Mary Lou herself picked us up. There was only 4 people(one other couple). Her husband has a van and also had about 8 people. She carried us to Volcanoes National Park, nut factory, lava tubes, water fall, black sand beach, winery, orchid farm, coffee farm, and etc. It was great. $75.00 pp. Ship wanted over $100 for same trip. We really enjoyed Mary Lou sharing her island with us.

Pearl Harbor Rating: 5+ out of 5+
Great! Moving experience!


City Tour Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
We did a combined tour. We were driven by many of the most famous stops in Honolulu. We knew time was of the essence to get to Pearl Harbor/Arizona. Maybe next time we can explore the island.


Pearl Harbor Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
We were driven by several interesting places in Honolulu, however, only the lookout, the gardens, and harbor were we able to get off. We also did Pearl Harbor and the Arizona. This was a 5 hour tour and we were busy. You can explore the museums/displays around Pearl Harbor and you wait for your turn to go to the Arizona Memorial. I am very glad we did this tour.

Waimea Canyon Rating: 5+ out of 5+
This was a very interesting/beautiful ride. We did have some other stops. However the Canyon was certainly the main attraction. We really enjoyed seeing the Canyon. Also, a local vendor was selling fruits and candy which were great!

Maui
City Tour Rating: 5+ out of 5+
We were ported in Lahaina, so we did not see the big resort side of Maui. However we were driven through the Iao Valley and to the Maui Tropical Plantation(farm). The tour was excellent and gave us a little time to walk around the port area. The banyon tree there is unreal. We also enjoyed eating at the Burger King. We also booked and independent whale watching excursion which turned out to be the highlight of the entire trip. There were whales everywhere. It was just unbelieveable - No, you may see a whale from the ship, but not like on the excursion.
