Our family of six thoroughly enjoyed the day we spent with Pono. He engaged everyone from age 10 up to 52. We did a lot of advance coordination to ensure he chose the activities that accommodated our group best. We requested an active day and were rewarded with breath-taking vistas from the hikes we took. The "foodies" in our group were thrilled with the restaurant choice he made for lunch as well as all of the thought and effort he put into packing snacks for our picnic near the beach. Pono is extremely knowledgeable. Although he wasn't born on Maui, his love and respect of the culture are genuine. He taught us songs, exposed us to new foods and taught us about local customs. There was never a dull moment and we walked away with a greater appreciation of Maui, Hawaiian culture and our wonderful guide.
