Fred was very knowledgeable and courteous throughout the tour. I enjoyed the details given and the sights were amazing. My only complaint was the Dole Plantation stop was extremely crowded and we did not have time to order Dole Whip or explore the plantation. This was no fault of the guide but it was disappointing.

Cousin Dave was Wonderful
Shalimar
, May 2021
First off, Cousin Dave was a wonderful tour guide. He’s kind and knowledgeable and clearly loves sharing his island. He made it all better. But, the tour is basically driving around and shopping here and there. We passed by lots of places but barely stopped and if we did it was for a small about of time. The Dole Plantation and Macadamia Farms were probably the best stops and Cousin Dave let us stay for a bit there too. If you like to actually walk and explore, this is not the tour for you. Don’t waste your time. If you wanna sit in a motorcoach for six hours then go for it, but make sure it’s with Cousin Dave.
