Kirk met our party of 8 at the airport and greeted the women with beautiful lei's as it was mother's day—a very nice touch. We spent the day with Kirk and toured Pearl Harbor, Honolulu/Waikiki beach and the south shore. He is very knowledgeable and personable. We all enjoyed our day very much and felt he gave us an excellent overview of the area showing us sights we never would have found on our own. Highly recommend!
