We can get tickets for you in advance. If you choose to visit any attractions that charge entrance fees, we can in most cases obtain tickets for you in advance so you won’t have to wait in line to purchase them yourself.

We know how to get there. Because of our knowledge of traffic patterns and highway networks on Oahu, if you choose to have us take you to your chosen places we can get you to where you want to go much more efficiently than you could on your own, even with a GPS device or app, while also providing in-depth information on the history, culture, geology, and ecology of the island.
