What people are saying about Honolulu

We had an awesome time with Waikiki Crawling! I've been to Hawaii a few times, but I confess that I didn't know a lot about the history of this beautiful place. Waikiki Crawling was super laid back and did a great job of mixing a casual bar crawl with super digestible history lessons. Our guide Maggie was super friendly and accommodating and told great stories. Would highly recommend!

The show was very entertaining and the people were great ,sweet, and helpful. The food was good , well worth the money. The only thing they should improve is the dessert at the end, the little piece of cake at the end was disappointing. Yellow cake and icing was dry in my opinion but other than that really enjoyed everything.

I really enjoyed my experience with Waikiki crawling. I enjoyed the different bars we visited and the walks in between them. Our guide Maggie was really fun and knowledgeable and she made the history lessons very interesting!

This is an awesome way to spend some non-beach time in Hawaii! Perfect duration - a little over 2 hours, great guide, and yummy beers in cool spots. Highly recommend!

The tour was great. Our tour guide Fuji was fun and knowledgeable. We had a great day!
