If I could have rated this experience more than 5 stars I would. It was great value for money and Marie was a superb host. Informative, efficient, friendly and became a real friend as the day went on. Well organised, with tickets bought for us in advance. Her apprentice Erin was with us making it easy to know where to go and what to do. A flexible tour with lots of added extras, including lunch in a deli we would never have found on our own. I cannot recommend Marie highly enough, simply superb!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aloha Peter I loved spending the day with you and Nicola. You were so much fun and I enjoyed our conversations. Yes...you and Nicola are my new friends. You might see me in England one of these days. Warmest Aloha, Marie

What an incredible day we had with Marie T., our guide in Oahu. We spent the day touring the island and learning at each venue. Not only did she share this island with us, but she helped us plan the rest of our trip which was on Maui. She is intelligent, well traveled, articulate and comfortable with the three of us from the minute we met at the airport. I had never had a private guide for a day and will be forever grateful that she was the first of, hopefully, many in the future. Thank you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aloha Carol, My new friends! What a fun time traveling around the island with you three ladies. I'm so glad we found turtles here and then you found them on Maui too. Always great to meet other turtle lovers. Say Hi to Vicky and Becky for me. A Hui Hou ( Until we meet again ) marie

Marie was very helpful and a fountain of information and gave us great customer service. She really has spent a lot of time studying Pearl Harbor
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aloha John, Thank you. I was honored to be part of your special ceremony at Pearl Harbor. It was fun to meet you and your wonderful family. A Hui Hou Marie
I can absolutely recommend Marie for a fun tour of the island. She is very knowledgeable and really gets involved with you on the day. Her being well known by the locals makes the tour feel like you have been friends for years, not just the day. She even added in some handy tips to get some fantastic photos. If you want a fun day out on this island, ask for Marie. Thanks.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aloha Susan I’m happy you enjoyed the tour. I had a great day with you and your family... my new friends. Send me your email I have a great photo of the birds coming to you and eating out of your hand. See you next time Marie
Nicholas K.Naples, FLORIDA, United States
Marie was a fantastic guide for us. We're four adults, two generations. Marie was most informative, fun, and due to her background and love of the beauty of this island, took us to places we'd never have found. We were in awe of her knowledge of the history and even geographical history. We loved this tour, and it made our stay in Honolulu very memorable. Would highly recommend Marie T.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aloha Nicholas, Thank you for the nice review. It was fun to meet you ( I love your sense of humor ) and your family. I'm very happy you enjoyed your tour with me. Mahalo nui loa
We loved our day with Marie at pearl harbor. She was amazing. Very accomodating and nothing was a problem. She is also very knowledgeable. Pearl harbor was a definate high light of out trip.

Mandy our guide, arrived promptly at the hotel pickup point and immediately it was obvious we were going to have an awesome day. True - it was absolutely awesome. Every part of the day was unrushed, full of excellent information and the scenery and views were out of this world. Lunch was great at the shrimp van too!! Mandy, thank you so much for being you and making this day so wonderful and special for us. It WAS an awesome day. Thanks Lucy & John, Rowena & Dave.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aloha Lucy I'm so glad you loved your tour. You were an awesome group. See you next time Mahalo

The tour was fit perfectly for our family even with a 14 month old baby. Marie could accommodate everything we wanted to visit during the tour. And she talked about some history from the Island.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aloha Sofia, Thank you for your review. It was a pleasure to meet you, your husband and your adorable baby. I'm glad we were able to see the USS Arizona and the east side of the island in the half day tour. Mahalo Marie

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
Charlotte CooperUnited States
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.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aloha Susan, Wonderful to meet you and your family. I hope to see you again next time. Marie
Ahmad RafiLITTLE ROCK, AR, United States
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

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
