Jon A.

Lihue, HI, United States

Born and raised in Hawaii with a business degree from the University of Hawaii, I have lived on Kauai for over 30 years and have an extensive background in local history, business, real estate and politics.

In fact there is almost no question I can't answer, so fire away! Let me tell you about the rise and fall of the sugar industry in Hawaii and how it was responsible for the beautiful ethnic diversity of the islands and how it led directly to Hawaii becoming the 50th state of the United States. I can tell you how much it costs to live in Hawaii and what it is really like to live here. I'll tell you about the features that are unique to Kauai due to the fact that Kauai is the oldest of the major Hawaiian islands. Learn about how the Hawaiian people had no concept of private property ownership prior to the arrival of westerners and how it impacts real estate ownership to this day. I guarantee that by the end of your tour, you will feel that you have learned many fascinating things about what is arguably the most beautiful place on the planet.

A Recent Review of this guide

Our tour with Jon was wonderful. He had knowledge of the island, which is beautiful, knew where to go and what to see. He was very accommodating when we had a schedule change and made our visit memorable. Thank you Jon.
