  • Spend the extra for the ambassador package! Well worth the price for the guided tour. This extra information and the better seats for the evening show made it very enjoyable. Our guide was fantastic.  more »

  • The PCC is, for want of a better description, a theme park, divided into 6 'villages', showcasing the cultures of various Polynesian islands; Hawaii, Fiji, Tahiti, New Zealand, Tonga and Samoa. The da...  more »
  • Interesting, educational, and fun. Our tour guide was very nice and knowledgeable. She even provided ponchos when it rained! The luau was great and the food was better. The tour was made mostly of many short shows, so despite the walking it's never tiring. I've been told that there's about 16 hours of stuff to do here, but the 5 hour tour covers the place pretty well. If you're on Oahu this is definitely a must-do.
  • Great place for the whole family. Well worth the money. Will give you an introduction to the Polynesian culture. I have been there twice and both times were unique. Don't miss the breath of haw in the evening. I would recommend this place as a must go to those visiting.
  • I had a great time learning about all the different Polynesian cultures throughout all the villages It was an amazing and fun experience! The food at the luau was great and I got to try many cultural foods while there which I would never have tried at home while there was an amazing performance happening. The HA Breath of Life Show was spectacular. Overall the exhibits were fun and interactive and the staff was very hospitable. On guy even sang to a couple of my friends and I kinda like a private concert! He taught us a Hawaiian children's song. This entire experience was so amazing and I highly recommended this for the whole family!
  • Good source of knowledge about the culture. Presentations are entertaining and informative. Luau had a great selection of food. Evening show was awesome. Have recommended this stop to many travelers. Also enjoyed the morning tour of the island. They picked us up at the ship and the guide had great family and cultural stories.
  • This place is amazing! I loved being able to come here and learn more about the islands in the pacific. Everything was just amazing, from the small shows put on by the different islands, to the river dances by each island, to the luau, and then to cap it all off the Ha Breath of life show! Overall one word can describe this place: UNFORGETTABLE! This place has given me a deeper understanding of cultures in just a small area! Come here if you ever visit Hawaii!
