    The pick up at the hotel was excellent. We went to all of the locations listed on the itinerary, that were open. We ordered our lunch ahead of time so it would be ready when we got there. The sights were beautiful. Collins, our driver, was very informative. We enjoyed hearing the history and culture facts during the day. The Waimea Valley and waterfall were awesome; wish we could have spent more time there. We stopped at a macadamia nut farm but only saw the gift shop. We would have liked to see more of the farm and how nuts are grown and processed. The dole plantation was very nice. We did see pineapples on the vine and other plants growing. The store was so bright and had cute items. My husband used the outside bathroom facilities and said they were awful. The tour was what we had expected and enjoyed the day of sighseeing.

    The guide was on time and she kept the group on the schedule. The tour bus was clean and the guide had the route map available on all seats. The tour guide was very well organized that she had the lunch menu on the back of the route map. As expected, the tour guide was very knowledgeable and had told lot of stories. She could reduce the number of morbid stories to perhaps one or two.

    Donny was very informative. Should have paid more attention to the distance of the walk to the waterfall. Ended up not going to that. Dole and the macadamia farm was a bit too commercial - would have preferred more history of each place rather than just drop off at gift shops. Temple was a highlight.
