Excellent Tour
Learning about the history of Hawaii at the Polynesian Culture Tour and that of the Pearl Harbor attack in 1941. The Dole Plantation was nice to buy pineapple products. Didn't learn about how they process them at this site. Johnny Aloha was an outstanding guide! We learned a lot from him
