Michael W.

Honolulu, Hawaii, United States

Hawai'i is an incredible place and it is extremely easy to fall in love with these islands.

This is what happened to me the first time I saw them. The beaches are World Famous and so are the waves. Beautiful mountain ranges, filled with waterfalls, beautiful plants and animals. There are so many mouth watering options for great food from all over the world and several different local style businesses all over the island. It would be hard not to love O'ahu.

I have been in the hospitality industry for 15 years, over 11 of them in Hawai'i. During this time I worked in various positions such as Sales Agent, Tour Guide, Dispatcher, Quality Assurance Manager, and Director of Operations for two major Hawai'i tour companies. My time at these companies included creating training programs and materials, overseeing day to day operations, insuring the safety and compliance of guests and employees, all in an enjoyable relaxed atmosphere.

I love everything about Hawai'i and am very blessed to be able to share it with you. Some of my favorite things are the history and culture, beautiful beaches, swimming, surfing, body surfing, hiking the mountains and of course the food! I am also a bit of a movie and tv buff and happily will show you many of the locations from your favorite features.

Mahalo nui loa for giving me the chance to show you this place I call home. Come ʻSpend Your Time Making Memoriesʻ with Hali'a Tours and Transportation.
