Why is Pono "simply the best"? This is our second time to have Pono as a guide and friend. We have kept in touch over the years and when we decided to return to Maui we made arrangements to spend time with him. I'm sure there are many competent guides who have learned this, that and the other about places and then can recite that to you.
Pono is different. He has immersed himself in the Hawaiian culture and history. He has studied it, made many friends in the culture and has participated in its performances and activities. As a result he brings alive the past and ties it to the present. Time with him is not just beautiful and interesting scenery. And restaurant recommendations (Pono certainly can do that. He'll know the owners or cooks.). After a day with him you begin to understand the history, culture, and people in the context of the islands. And we have come to understand that its the people who really make Maui wonderful.
