My advice, always read the fine print before you decide on a tour.
I did not realise we would commence this tour at 8 am and arrive back at our hotel at 10 pm. A very long exhausting day! So if you are up to a fourteen hour tour this is the tour for you. The tour begins with a whistle-stop tour across Oahu and takes in places like Waimea Bay, Sunset Beach, The Blowhole and several other points of interest. After your zig-zag across the island ,you eventually arrive at the Polynesian Village at about 2 pm and you remain there until 9pm. For lunch you can eat at the restaurant or the snack bars. After lunch, youi are free to go to a number of different attractions which are titled Hawaii, Samoa, Tahiti etc. At these shows you experience some of the highlights of the culture such as karate chop opening of a coconut, quick climbing of high palm trees, hula dancing. These shows run for thirty minutes and are time tabled throughout the afternoon. At 5.30 pm, it is time for dinner. Hundreds of people are seated in an enormous auditorium and then it is a two course smorgasbord. Quite a good meal and well organised. After the meal and starting at 7.30 is the Show Breath of Life and this is the highlight of the day. Absolutely brilliant. Set in with a "nature" back drop, the Polynesian dancing is amazing, so full of energy, costuming, brilliant illumination and emotion. A truly unique experience! The Show finishes at 9pm and you arrive home in Waikiki at 10 pm.
Summing up, a quite extroadinary day, but a day I would only do once as it leaves you quite exhausted.
