Unorganized, and confusing. We were guaranteed 2 excursions and it was so unorganized that we ended up wasting a couple of hours of our vacation time. I would not recommend the tour, or if you do the tour.....be sure the "excursions" are clearly marked out.

I'm not a tour guy - people packed in an overcrowded tour bus, with a non-flexible, mandated schedule ? No thanks. This is the tour for people who hate tours. Uncle Kevin was entertaining, knowledgeable, accommodating to everyone, and passionate about his home island. On...More

Yeah The Surf Bus is a great choice, excellent, informative tour. I can say for sure if they pick up at the Aulani but I’m pretty sure that you’re not more than 2 blocks from their pick- up points!
