Falls & Caves Rating: 5+ out of 5+
Great tour guide...felt like he was friend. Comfortable van and only six passengers plus guide

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park Rating: 5+ out of 5+
Guide was very knowledgeable about the park and was also very safety conscious.

City Tour Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Beautiful flowers to see at the orchid farm and to purchase if we chose. Worth the stop. Moana Loa location was fun to taste all the macs and the ice cream. Small coffee processing business was very interesting to hear how it all worked. Sea turles were very cooperative the day we were there and we saw five of them swimming and sunning themselves.

Didn't get off ship in Ensenada before and nothing we really wanted to do. The port itself was nicely developed and appeared clean and convenient for those who wanted to get off the ship to go do things.

Tender ships in Lahaina were so efficient and prompt it was impressive. We just walked around town and took public transportation to shopping center. It was very hot so I wasn't really interested in doing too much else.

Kaui was beautiful....we just took a shuttle into a little shopping area and then walked around the beach adjacent to the Marriot. Didn't stay too long as it was pretty hot.

Honolulu was easy to get around with the Aloha Bus. Went to Diamond Head and then took a quick trip around the city. Went to the International Marketplace

and had lunch. Don't think I would go there again but had do it at least once. Went shopping in Ala Moana shopping center which had many upscale shops and one of the best Sears stores I have ever visited. Nordstrom's was also very nice.Nice Long's store to stock up on whatever you need and some GREAT prices on macadamia nut and other Hawaiian gifts.
