Perillo Tours – Islands of Hawaii

 Bert Nobriga: Each island is very unique. Each island has its own personality. Each island, although the same, is very different from each other.

Oahu is a big city. Oahu in Honolulu is a big city, a lot of people don’t realize how large a city it is before arriving here. In the historic section of Honolulu you’ll see the Iolani Palace, the only royal palace on United States soil. Then just across from the palace is a statue of the first king of the Hawaiian Islands,

King Kamehameha I or King Kamehameha the Great.

Fran Mace: The Arizona Memorial was maybe one of the highlights of my trip. It was the one thing I was adamant about doing no matter how we ended up in Hawaii. It’s one of those things that at some point I wanted to come to. It’s tremendously moving. Just makes you think and just reflect upon things and about how good we have it now not having had lived through that type of event.

Bert Nobriga: While it doesn’t matter how many times you go to Pearl Harbor, as many times as I’ve been to Pearl Harbor it still effects myself as well. It’s a very emotional experience to see a lot of different reactions on the memorial itself as well as watching the documentary film that they show. I realize at that moment when I see the reactions that and don’t even tell me the story behind it, that they either had a family member, a father or brother, uncle that was here. It becomes very emotional for everyone around.

Guy Petrucelli: I’ve lived all my life waiting for that moment to see that and it’s extremely moving.

Chuck Smothers: As we left the Arizona Memorial, Bert, our tour guide, led our group in God Bless America. It was moving.

Jay Duffy: The Polynesian Cultural Center is a place that perpetuates and teaches the legacy of Hawaii and Polynesia in general. A lot of these fortunately westernization, a lot of these philosophies, a lot of these traditions, a lot of these cultures were dying out and the Polynesian Cultural Center has brought those cultures back to life and kept those traditions.

Bert: Kauai is just the opposite of ?? country. It’s like going back in time. I always say that Kauai is the Hawaii that your mind’s eye sees before you get here. It is the Hawaii that you expected to see and it’s absolutely beautiful and very much country and a lot of natural beauty. And, of course, the helicopter flights over Kauai. It’s the best way to see the entire island since the island is inaccessible by vehicle. Just beautiful. And a lot of Aloha Spirit as well.

Bert: Maui is like in between Kauai and Oahu. Not too fast and not too slow. A lot of visitors enjoy Maui because I believe Maui really has something for everyone. No matter what your likes or dislikes are. It is something that will please you. Haleakala, of course, is one of the highlights of Maui and the largest dormant volcano in the world.  And you look up to a beautiful 9,740 ft. elevation there and look right into the mouth of Haleakala crater and right down into a 3,000 ft. drop. It’s beautiful, it’s an awesome sight. The town of Paia on Maui is the windsurfing capital of the world. Of course, Hana also on Maui is very pretty and beautiful. A lot of natural beauty. Wonderful for picture posts.

Heather Glemser: One of the best things on Maui was Haleakala and watching the sunrise and we bike down and that was beautiful. I mean the sunrise. I couldn’t believe I’m standing up there, we’re in Hawaii, 30 degree weather with gloves on our hands. It was just amazing. Saw the sunrise, then we go back down. It was great.

Bert: And then the big island of Hawaii. Very unique, very different from all the other islands being so young geologically. She is just an infant geologically. So being so young, she’s very unique, she’s a very versatile terrain. There’s a lot of variety on this island. And, of course, the Hawaii Volcano National Park is the highlight of the island of Hawaii besides the people. That’s the highlight of the island. The most active volcano in the world. Of course, the Hawaii Volcano National Park is at the summit of the Kilauea. A few miles from the summit along the flanks is the Puʻu ʻŌʻō crater which is the actual eruption site today. The last 23 years, she has added over 600 acres of new land to the big island of Hawaii and it is oozing and flowing out of Puʻu ʻŌʻō down toward the shoreline and entering the ocean. And as it enters the ocean, of course, the lava being very hot over 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit as it meets the cold ocean waters billows and billows of steam will come pouring out along the shoreline.

Man: I’m very happy that we went to every island that we did. Each island was different so we got a different flavor and exposure of each island.
