We had a fantastic time with Marie (&Emily). This was a great tour for children. Marie knows so much about the history of the island. She also showed me a few tricks on my camera to take better pictures. Can't wait to see the ones she too. Highly recommend this tour if you want to see the island in a day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aloha Angela, I had a lot of fun with you and your family. Your two daughters are adorable and smart. I'll be getting photos to you soon. Enjoy the rest of your Hawaiian vacation in Maui. Mahalo Marie

Wonderful Day in Honolulu. We had a lovely day with Marie. We contacted Marie from the cruise ship after meeting another couple who wanted to join us for the Arizona tour. Throughout the day she was flexible and cheerful, handling delays due to loading my wheelchair cheerfully. She is knowledgeable, flexible, and has a nice sense of humor. We felt like we were traveling with a friend. Although she gave us considerable information we never felt lectured. We highly recommend Marie.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aloha Charlotte, I loved meeting you and Gary and your new friends from England. You were a lively, fun group. A Hui Hou - See you next time. Mahalo Marie
Bonita ShawberryUnited States
She was very knowledgeable, personable and our group of 6 really enjoyed the day with her. We would highly recommend her for those who are interested in her services.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aloha Bonita Thank you for your review. I enjoyed meeting you. We had a great day together. A hui hou Marie
Martha PlummerUnited States
Marie did a great job! She was on time, pleasant and informative. She brought an extra van for our luggage and dropped us off at the cruise ship docks. Although guides are not allowed at the USS Arizona, and the USS Missouri provides their own guides, she gave us clear directions & tips & was waiting for us when we returned. If I was to visit Pearl Harbor again, I may opt not to have a guide only because it could easily be done on your own, but getting dropped off and picked up at each site was very nice
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aloha Martha, It was great to meet you and your large family of friends. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed the Pearl Harbor tour with the bonus of going to the spectacular Pali Lookout. Yes, it's true you can go to Pearl Harbor on your own if you can get the tickets ahead of time which can be quite difficult or otherwise get up early and stand in line at 6:00am. They give out a limited amount of tickets at 7:00am every day. I hope you enjoyed your Hawaiian cruise.
Patrick MattinglyUnited States
it was a pleasure having Marie as our guide. She was very knowledgeable of the history of all the places she took us to. The other five people on this tour and myself thoroughly enjoyed our day spent with Marie, I highly recommend Marie for a guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aloha Patrick, Thank you for your review. I loved meeting you and your fun group too! See you again next time. Marie
Susan MorrisUnited States
We enjoyed our informative tour with Marie . . . she was on time arriving at ur hotel and getting us to Pearl Harbor and back on time. Very knowledge of the island's history and engaging with our adult children. Thank you Marie.

My family had a wonderful time with Marie. Our day was marred by constant rain but she made the best use of time by engaging my kids in water-based activities. From tour guide, she turned into a snorkeling instructor, and jumped into the waters with my four kids. We had a mentally challenged daughter, and she went out of the way to teach her very patiently. My children had the fun of their life time, and she literally became part of the family. We strongly recommend Marie as a local tour guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aloha Ahmad, I loved meeting you and your wonderful family. So much fun snorkeling with you and your children. Oh...and that unsual fish we saw was a "turkeyfish". I'm sending the underwater photos soon. Happy New Years Marie
Ahmad RafiLITTLE ROCK, AR, United States
Choosing Marie as a local tour guide was the highlight of our vacation in Oahu. She was very knowledgeable and fully familiar with local history, traditions, and of course places. One of our daughters constantly engaged her in conversation, she was very patient, and answered every question to her and our satisfaction. The tour itself was awesome, and we saw the most scenic places on this earth. She even negotiated with local vendors to get us the best price. She took memorable pictures at the right time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aloha Ahmed, So much fun being with you and your family. We had a great day and lots of fun with photos. See you next time. Warmest Aloha, Marie
Jacqueline HaynesUnited States
We had a fabulous day with Marie. She is very knowledgable about everything we asked about the island and a very pleasant , fun person to guide our experience in Oahu. And we loved our "up close" experience with the green sea turtles. I highly recommend Marie. Mahalo to her
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aloha Jackie Wonderful day with you and your friends. I'm happy you enjoyed the Pearl Harbor and beat of Oahu sightseeing tour. Yes .. it was a treat to see Kekoa on the beach. Mahalo Warmest Aloha Marie
Cathy FosterUnited States
Marie was a fantastic guide for the Best of Oahu Sightseeing tour. She picked our family up promptly at the airport and drove us straight to Pearl Harbor, where she had reserved Arizona Memorial tickets waiting for us. After the tour she began our sightseeing tour and took us to many beautiful beaches on the North Shore, down the East coast seeing some well-known sites as well beautiful sites off the beaten path. We felt right at home with Marie from the first minute and would highly recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aloha Cathy, It was wonderful to meet you and your lovely family. I enjoyed sharing Pearl Harbor and the most beautiful locations on Oahu with you, your husband and daughters. See you again next time. Mahalo nui loa Marie

Paula PeknikUnited States
This tour of Oahu was fantastic and Marie was such a knowledgeable guide. We went to places that were off the beaten path and her stories of the history of Oahu brought it all to life. I felt like I spent the day with one of my girlfriends. Marie accommodated my coffee habit, stopping when I needed to grab a cup and she knew how eager I was to see a Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle up close and she made it happen! This was one of the best days during my first ever trip to Hawaii. What a fabulous day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aloha Paula, What a great day we had together touring the island. I'm delighted you enjoyed our visual road trip. You were a lot of fun too. See you next time you're here with your family. , Warmest Aloha, marie
James TweedyUnited States
Very knowledgeable about Hawaii and was great with identifying photo vantage points and tips with camera. Would recommend to others!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aloha James, It was great to meet you and your group. Although we had a little bit of rain during some of the tour the sun came out and gave us some beautiful views. I'm glad you enjoyed the Pearl Harbor & Sightseeing tour. See you again next time. Warmest Aloha, marie
Maria CasinoUnited States
Highly recommended. Marie T. took us to "off the beaten path" spots with amazing views, picturesque landscapes and contrasting backdrops. She also shared with us informative background of the Hawaiian history and culture, and at the same time taught each of us tricks on how to effectively use your camera and take beautiful pictures. Indeed, pictures for us to relive our amazing adventure. Thanks Marie!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aloha Maria, I had so much fun with your big family from all over the US. I love your passion for photography. See you again next time. Warmest Aloha marie
Pamela ElyeaUnited States
We were three travelers, in our 60's, and we had booked our first trip to the Hawaiian Islands. We had waited this long to visit Oahu so we had heighten expectations that everything must be perfect. Our tour guide, Marie, exceeded our expectations. We chose the Food & Sightseeing tour. Marie drove a large roomy van that was very clean and afforded a great view of the sights. We started at Leonard's Bakery where we breakfasted on delicious malasadas. Then we drove up the coast. I would go again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aloha Pam, I loved meeting you. It was a fun day - beautiful weather, good food, and great conversation as we traveled around the island. See you again next time. Warmest Aloha, Marie
