This is connected with Roberts Tours, but not even sure how! You can get the free Trolley (a bus that looks like a Tram for us Aussies) or a white shuttle bus that has 'free shuttle' on the side which may or may not have the word 'free' covered in white tape - not sure what that is about!

I had previously visited Waikiki twice before and used the 'Free' shuttle with my family to visit the store on several occasions. I noticed this time that there were a number of your vehicles had the 'Free' covered over. I did visit the store on a trams and I was glad to see that for the most part it was... More

If you have been to a Hilo Hattie's you most likely want to skip, although this is the largest and has extra items provided by vendors, such as soaps and facial products. I find that Hattie's is overpriced though. I do find that if you do want to see the store that their transportation from cruise ships and many hotels... More

This was hubby's first visit to Hilo Hattie's but I had been there before and was very disappointed this time. The factory tour is no longer available and that was a big part of going to Hilo Hattie's. We found the merchandise to be very expensive and there was a limited amount of "matching" men/women outfits. We wouldn't go back.

The free trolley ride with running commentary from the driver is the beginning of a fun shopping experience. Once at the store, you'll find small vendors with varying Hawaiian crafts then the HUGE selection of women's, men's and children's clothing in beautiful selections of fabrics...many available in matching family items (shirts for boys & men...dresses and blouses for women &...

We arrived on a cruise and took advantage of the free shuttle. They take you to their store, then run another free shuttle to other places including Waikiki, Ala Moana Shopping Center, and back to the ship. You get a cute shell lei when you get on the shuttle, and that's kind of your pass for pickup again in a... More

Hilo Hattie's shuttle will pick you up and take you to their shop. The shuttle drivers are very entertaining. You will get a mini tour narrative. The actual shop is packed with souveniers and clothing. There is something for everyone. Be sure to look for a coupon to be used in the store in any of the local tour books.

Get a free juice while arriving and shop. Look in the tourist mags for coupons for more deals and free items. buy a certain amount and get a free mug.... More
