Yolanda S.

Kaneohe, HI, United States

Aloha! My name is Yolanda. I'm an outgoing, adventurous person who loves to dance, travel, and meet people from different countries.

I studied Tourism Administration in college, was a flight attendant for five years, and later worked many years in people-oriented, professional positions related to customer service. I'm also fluent in Spanish and English.

As a long-time resident of Hawaii, I know its best-kept secrets and specialize in providing unique and memorable experiences in off-the-beaten-path places. I know the best places to see whales, manta rays, monk seals, sea turtles, and albatrosses; pick your own fruit; and buy Kona coffee, pineapple ice cream, Hawaiian quilts, shave ice, or Koa wood carvings. I know the places that Mark Twain called "the most beautiful view in the world" and "the Grand Canyon of the Pacific". I know where you can find bargains; the best golf courses; culinary delights; uplifting entertainment; unspoiled nature; scenic drives; and fabulous hiking, snorkeling, surfing, and stand up paddleboarding. I also know which activities and site visits can be reasonably combined into plans for a single day on a particular island.

I'm a Certified Hawaii Professional Tour Guide and passionate about customer service. My tours are flexible and customizable. By tapping into my knowledge and expertise you will spend less time deciding what to do. You will be far more likely to visit the most beautiful and fascinating places on the islands and choose attractions and excursions that are truly worthwhile and provide good value for the money.

Be my guest! Let me show you the best of Hawaii!

A Recent Review of this guide

We did a full day private tour with Yolanda to the North Shore. It was a big day but a terrific way to see more than Waikiki. Yolanda was knowledgeable and delightful company. Highly recommended. The turtles basking on the beach were a highlight for us. We rate the tour 5 out of 5. Maxine T.
