We loved our day with PHVT!!

I’ve never been one to do tours with a tour guide when I’m on vacation, but the all-day private tour with Yolanda that my husband and I took completely changed my view! I didn’t know what I was missing! Because this trip was a last-minute opportunity, my husband and I had virtually no time to plan it, and it was stressing us out. When Yolanda planned a day of adventure for us, taking into account our interests, it was a relief. And the day we spent with her also gave us a solid understanding of the area to do our own activities for the rest of the trip. As we hiked to amazing views, parked at off-the-path beaches and ate coconut-macadamia ice cream at the local spot, Yolanda told us about the history of Hawaii, explained the influences and current issues in Hawaiian society, and answered all of our questions along the way.

She has such a knowledge and love of Oahu and its people, it was a real treat to see Hawaii through her eyes. She also pointed us in the right direction for snorkeling and hiking during the rest of our trip, really saving us some time and research. She’s very down-to-earth, friendly, fun, clearly enjoys what she does, and is extremely professional. Oh! and if you don’t want to deal with the hassle of parking, which can be an issue in several areas of Oahu, Yolanda’s comfortable, clean van with AC and cool water is the way to go – she just drops you off while she finds parking. I can imagine for families with kids this would be a big plus. You can tell Yolanda will go above and beyond for her clients, because she has a very high standard of customer service. When my husband mentioned how he hadn’t yet been able to try chocolate-covered macadamia nuts, she immediately said “do you want to try one now?” and opened a cooler with treats in it. We loved our day with PHVT!!

We had a great time with Yolanda!

We had a great time with Yolanda! My wife and I had done some planning but it all felt very overwhelming and time consuming. Spending day 1 with Yolanda allowed us to see some amazing sights, several that we would have never found ourselves. It got us oriented to the island and we were tempted to hire her for even longer. She’s friendly, quick on her feet, and fluent in both Spanish and English. She gave us insights into the culture and the history that we would not have learned otherwise.
