Hi VTers, Does anyone know if Little Hawaii is still in business? Can't seem to get a response from them even though they still have a web presence. If they aren't around any more, who is good for mini cooper rentals? Mahalo, Claire
We will be going on NCL's Pride of America in September 2013 and will be in Honolulu for 3 days before the cruise. We are looking to take public transportation, or taxis (no car rental) to the various sites whenever possible. A bus tour (if necessary) is probably doable if it's really the only way to get to a specific attraction. We are allocating 1 day to visit Pearl, the Missouri, and the Punchbowl. We do NOT swim, surf, paraglide, hike, or bike. We are soft-adventurer sightseers but not doers. Given what we do and do not do, what would be the most convenient location for a hotel. It has to be within a reasonable commutet from and back to the POA. I've checked the Cruise Critic port excursions and would only take them if I can't do the same on our own. Suggestions please. Thanks as always, Irv

I keep hearing about Oahu Ghost Tours. Has anyone been on one of their tours? If so, how was it? Was it cheesy? Really spooky? Worth the money spent?
We are heading to Waikiki in April for a week after getting off a cruise and would like to know where we can purchase gluten free food as well as eating in restaurants that will provide or alter the menu to suit people with coelics. Does anyone have any ideas for us?
We will be making a return trip to Hawaii in April after about 15 years and would like some recommendations on a good luau don't remember which one we went with last time. We are traveling with friends who this will be their first trip and would like to make this a special trip for them. If any one has any other recommendations on things to do other than the usual tourist things I would appreciate any ideas. Our age group is between 60-70.

Hi All. I was in Honolulu once in July and wonder if the weather would be warm enough for swimming at Waikiki beach at the end of February and in March. What kind of water temperature should I expect? I am trying to choose holidays while Jetstar-Australia has flights on special till the end of March.
Two of my colleagues are soon off to Honolulu, and have asked me to find out about Halal Restaurants in Honolulu, so who better to ask than all the VT-ers out there. Would anybody know of any nice Halal Restaurants to go to? Thanks very much. G
Thanks for the help everyone. I really appreciate people who are not sarcastic and tell me to look at a map. I was just trying to get some input on where people in Hawaii go on vacation when they don't fly to California or Las Vegas. I really appreciate the suggestion of volunteering, and yes, I have been to Molokai, Lanai, Molokini but not Niihau or Necker or Nihoa. I actually was on a cruise ship once that went to Kiribati for a day, but flying there is an excellent suggestion. And I will look into flights to Manila. Keep the suggestions coming. I will probably write this up (I am a reporter for my local newspaper, so if you would like to be directly quoted, just let me know) and once I pick one, let everyone know how it went.
Hi - I'm flying into Honolulu in January to stay for one month, and have both lived in and traveled extensively throughout the islands. Is there someplace relatively cheap to fly for a week or so - Okinawa, North Korea, Tasmania, Taiwan, Guam, Fiji, Samoa, Tahiti, Yap, not back to the mainland, wherever, the key is spending less than1000 on airfare and seeing someplace off the beaten track, where do thinking people on Hawaii vacation that is atypical, and also has reasonable airfare or boatfare. Put on your thinking caps, folks, and tell me of exotic, cheap vacations departing from Honolulu. Gracias.
My husband and I are making a return trip to Hawaii with close friends of ours in April. The other time we visited which was about 15 years ago my in-laws arranged for us to receive leis at the airport and would like to do this for our friends. This is their first visit and would like to make it special for them. I found several companies on line but was wondering if anyone could recommend one of the companies? Thanks
Is it better to organise car rental in Australia prior to going to Honolulu. Also can anyone recommend a rental company? Thanks Jim W
We are doing the Cruise around the islands, preceded by 3 nights at waikiki. We have 1 full day and 1 night before flying home. Any recommendations? Must do's? Recommended hotels for a memorable last night?
Arriving in Honolulu next week (:D) and have booked a car to be picked up from the airport for the week. I booked the LDAR through Dollar which is advertised as a Lincoln Towncar (I really want a Towncar, just an American fantasy of mine haha). Last time I tried this plan with Dollar at LAX I booked a "Premium" car which was advertised as a 300C but ended up being a Crown Victoria :|. Does anyone know if Dollar are still using the Towncars in Honolulu? I haven't picked up a car at HNL before. Is the booth in the terminal or do I need to get the shuttle (ala LAX)
Hi all , I am a history lover and wondering if anyone can suggest what I can visit (I already know about the Arizona , looking forward to this) when I visit Honolulu in October for the first time . I am particularly interested in military history from WW2 onwards. IS it possible to visit the military base? I am joining officer training in the airforce in Australia soon , this is my passion. Thanks for any help!
I was hoping to save money by not paying to check a bag and buying liquids in Hawaii instead but I want to make sure the stores there carry the contact solution I use--> Clear Care No Rub Cleaning & Disinfecting Solution. Does anyone know? Thanks!
Someone told me that there's a Walmart in the vicinity of the Waikiki area. Is it close enough to walk to from the Hilton Hawaiian Village? If so, how long would it take?

We will be flying into Honolulu but our accommodations are in Kailua. How can we get to Kailua from the airport? Are there any shuttle buses or are taxis available, On the map it looks like it might be a long trip. We will have a lot of baggage so really do not want to try to catch a regular bus. Thank you in advance for your help. Jerry & Susan

Hi all, we are going to Waikiki in 2 days for our honeymoon and we still have not done any planning yet. We are going to have a rental car and we are both adventurous. Can anyone suggest what we should do? Also any good nightclubs?
Hi Everyone We're starting to plan our much needed break and have Honolulu and Maui on the list. Hoping you can answer a couple of questions though. When is the quieter time to go eg after the American summer holidays? Is it worthwhile going with an 18 month old? Is it easy to get around with a pram etc? Should we go to Maui and stay at a resort, or are the other islands a better option? Thank you all for your help! Jazzop
