Marie was fantastic! She checked in with us and everything went better than expected. We had children with us so we did the Pearl Harbor and city tour. I can't wait to go back to O'ahu and do the full photo tour. We got a sneak preview with a couple of iphone camera tips and we've been using them ever since!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aloha Liz, I'm delighted you and your children enjoyed the Pearl Harbor Tour. Haha.. Keep shooting. See you next time. I would love to show you the most scenic locations on the island. Mahalo marie
Barry RubinUnited States
We did the Circle Island Tour with Marie and loved it. Marie is an excellent travel guide and terrific at explaining the Island sites and Hawaiian culture. She is informative, friendly, and respectful of our needs and desires. Marie is incredibly knowledgeable about Hawaiian history and shares that with her clients in an entertaining and educational manner. She helped us get the best possible photos of the sites we visited and was the best guide we have had in all of our travels. Our tour was terrific.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aloha Barry, I loved meeting you and your delightful family. I enjoyed our day together seeing and photographing the most scenic locations on our island. See you next time. Mahalo Marie
Pamela TopperUnited States
Loved our tour with Marie. While this is advertised as a "food tour", we had read the description and realized it was actually a tour of the Island with some food stops included. Marie is very knowledgeable about her home and loves Oahu, which is evident. While we had enjoyed our stay, after our day with Marie, we cannot wait to return to see more of the Island. We were able to visit some areas were would not have known about. Highly recommend spending time with Marie, both this tour or anyone she does.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aloha Pam, I so enjoyed spending the day with you eating and sightseeing around the island. See you again next time. marie
Susan WillnerCarpinteria, CA, United States
Our two tours with Marie in Oahu were terrific! Marie is knowledgeable, experienced, delightful, and personable. She is a wealth of information, presenting it all with clarity and passion. She is a perfect combination of historian, sociologist, environmentalist and lover of all living things. She was always aware of our comfort and is an excellent driver. Don't miss a tour with Marie!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aloha Susan, What a fun two days with you too! I enjoyed our conversations and was inspired by you. Oh...thank you for the comment about my excellent driving...haha...could you please tell my husband? :-) Marie
Susan WillnerCarpinteria, CA, United States
Marie's tour of Oahu exceeded our expectations. A delightful woman, an experienced tour guide and driver, she was extremely knowledgeable about Hawiian history, flora and fauna, marine mammals, and Oahu's breathtaking beaches. We loved her tour of Oahu!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aloha Susan, What a pleasure to meet you and Art. I loved showing you the island and especially enjoyed our conversations. Mahalo Marie
Shelly ParkerUnited States
Marie gives an outstanding tour. I love that it is laid back and customized. We really enjoy local cuisine and she made sure we got to try a variety of dishes throughout the day. She intertwined sight seeing with history and food tasting. Also, we were fortunate that she gave us some tips on using our camera and taking pictures. I would certainly book with her again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aloha Shelly, I enjoyed spending the day with you and Heath. I'm inspired by your four month cruise trip around the world !! Enjoy your trip and I'll be following your adventures thru Heath's blog. Mahalo nui Loa Marie

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aloha Kim, Thank you for your review. Mahalo Marie
Dennis O.United States
We had 2 goals - learn a Canon EOS, and see sights in Oahu. Marie excelled at both, and queried us about specific wishes to tailor the 8 hrs. We learned history, and saw gorgeous sights, especially a drive into Kaneohe through verdant mountains to practice techniques at the Byodo-In Temple. I had the chance to capture images of a young man ocean cliff jumping. During each stop and between, Marie suggested methods to tell a story with photos, and I learned when to use what - eye opening for an amateur!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aloha Dennis, It was a pleasure to meet you both and sharing the beauty of O'ahu, it's history and photography with you. I so throughly enjoyed our conversations and would love to see you again. Mahalo Warmest Aloha, marie

Debbie InocencioUnited States
What a great day!!!! Marie was wonderful on picking us up and being flexible throughout the day on what she though we would like and what we talked about wanting to see. She was very knowledgeable about the entire Island and many historical stories to tell during the day. I am also in a wheelchair and she made the trip very accessible for a wheelchair guest!!! She also knew of other accessible events we could go to later. What a GREAT day!! It was one of the highlights of our trip!! Thank You Marie!!

David JacksonUnited States
What a great day with Marie. She was knowledgeable,fun,and flexible. Marie tailored the day to our interests and introduced us to the best Hawaiian ice! Marie took us to see off the beaten path of touristy Hawaii but made sure to include the must sees. The day flew by!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aloha David It was fun to meet you and share the hidden gems of Oahu. The Hawaiian shaved ice is a must have treat here in the islands. I’m so glad you enjoyed it. Mahalo Marie

Peter O'GormanUnited Kingdom
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
Catherine HartzUnited Kingdom
Marie was an excellent and informative guide and accompanied us around all the sites. Although we had a whole day she advised us on the most significant sites and was patient as we took a long time lingering at this very special Memorial. A quick dash around the Old town and then left at a restaurant for supper before we boarded our International Flight. If we come back we will go on one of her photographic tours.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aloha Catherine, Thank you for your review. I enjoyed the day at Pearl Harbor with you. Yes... please come back to Hawaii and let's tour the island together. Mahalo Marie
Carol E. AllenUnited States
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

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

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
