Interesting tour

Reviewed by: Dan B, 2016/11/27

Our driver picked us up on time as they usually do and we headed to the Iolani Palace for the first leg of our tour. Our Driver like all of the Veltra Tour drivers gave us useful information and told us about the interesting areas along the way. When we arrived at the palace our driver brought us to the palace staff for the guided tour. This place is amazing and very well kept. The tour guide was full of interesting facts about the palace and the people who lived there. We went from room to room and floor to floor never conflicting with our tours in the building. Once the guided portion of the tour was over we were brought to the museum area and gift shop to view the Kings and Queens jewels and other artifacts.

We boarded the bus and our drive brought us to the Bishop Museum where we had a very good lunch and time to relax for a few moments. Once lunch was over we went thru the gift shop to head to the Bishops Museum. We spent a few moments there before heading to another building to see ho volcanoes make lava and other interesting scientific items. We had some tome to walk around before heading back to the Bishops Museum. We were always given the option to walk thru any of the many areas without a guide or have the guided tour which we did. The guide went from display to display explaining the items and how they were used in the Hawaiian culture. After the guided portion of the tour we were given tome to walk from display to display along the 4 floors of the museum. There is also an interactive room where children of all ages can take part in different things. We once again boarded the bus where our driver asked how we enjoyed our tours and if there was anything else he could have done to make it better. He brought us back to our various hotels with more information about the area. This was a very comfortable tour and plan on spending more tome at this museums next year.
