My friends have been asking me if they need a car. My first instinct was "Yes! You don't want to be stuck in waikiki!" But on the other hand, I know that there are lots of tours that pick people up in Waikiki and I don't think the bus system is ridiculously hard, especially because its linked into google maps. Questions:
Luau: Germaine's or Paradise Cove? (I've been to both and neither stands out in my head)
Transportation: How many of your guests rented cars? Were they okay without it?
Trolley: This is one of those crazy tourist overpriced things to me but did anyone recommend these to your guests?
Circle Tour: Did anyone do a shuttle tour around the island? Recommendations?
Activities I'm overlooking?: Pearl Harbor/Swap meet, the pineapple maze at dole, North Shore Shave Ice (although waiola's is my fave) and a luau are going to be my recommended must-dos for a true tourist experience. Are there other inexpensive activities (Hanauma is always crazy crowded but do tourists think it's worth it?)
I'm such a failure at being a local! Haha I just never get a chance to be a tourist and it's hard to help other people be one
