Terrific
I enjoyed the tour even though I wish there was more time to ride the train around the Dole Plantation. There was probably another tour that included that. The Dole Wipe was delicious.

Pearl Harbor + Polynesian Cultural Center + Dole Plantation from Waikiki
Aloha Sunshine Tours was the tour company. We started our day with a pickup from Ka Aloha he told us our driver Dennis would meet us after the Pearl Harbor tour. Dennis was knowledgeable about EVERYTHING HAWAII!! He made our day tour amazing. He even has various phone chargers to boost your dying cell phones. Thanks Viator

Dole Pineapple Plantation, Haleiwa Historical Town and Honolulu City Tour
Our family of 4 (with kids 11 and 9) sure did enjoy the company of Jay, our tour guide, and our day sights and discoveries! Communication was considerate and most helpful. Jay was prompted and yet never pushing. We started early with warm greeting, bottled water, and layout for the day along with invite for questions and request at anytime. Jay had all the details figured out and we smoothly moved from place to place without feeling rushed (and being free of time awareness on our part, was rare treat!). Visiting Pearl Harbor in the Hawaiian sunrise light is meaningful and beautiful. Jay gave us ideal directions on how to get in (it’s free!) and where to go once inside. This was one of the reasons we came to Oahu, so our kids could experience this monumental moment in history. They were quite taken with it. Afterwards, the mood was lighten with tasty Dole Whip at Dole Plantation...our daughter the newest fan! Jay then had cookie treats for us. Driving along coastline while hearing history and fun random stories about Hawaii from Jay, as he drove us to lookouts and the Polynesian Cultural Center, was more than we anticipated and interesting. The mood was easy going, sit back, and enjoy. We did! Jay continued to take care of the details, making sure we visited our desired areas, saw to it that learned hula dancing, and even held our seats for the show despite getting ‘stink eye’ from those wanting the prime spots he held for us. Thanks, Jay! As we climbed back into car, Jay greeted us with cool refreshing canned juice that we sipped as we drove along beautiful mountain range and coastline. After hearing our daughter’s learning of state capitals, Jay made sure we drove by government buildings of old and new to take a few traditional and then some goofy pics. We were gone from 6:15am to about 5:00. What a day to remember!

Get Lost in the World’s Largest Maze

When Pineapple King James Dole first moved to Hawaii in 1899, he probably never thought his plantation would house the world’s largest maze. Constructed from over 14,000 plants, the site’s garden maze covers three acres (1.2 hectares) and has navigational plaques that help you eventually find your way to the exit.
