We have used Affordable for many trips and they do an excellent job. They are professional and follow through.
Sheraton in Kona: room had a musty, moldy odor. Several Very small beige colored bugs crawled on night stand where several of my bags were located as well as a glass of water. Last morning a large roach was crawling on my night stand. The location, pool, housekeeping, and restaurants at this location was excellent. Other Sheraton hotels on Waikiki, Maui and Kauai were also amazing and conveniently located on beautiful beaches.
Excellent trip. Only disappointment were some of the flights, we were not sitting together.
We really enjoyed our selves immensely. What a wonderful trip. Our guide was exquisite so knowledgeable of everything. The drivers were a trip, they had us laughing so hard, and the way they handle those big rigs is beyond me. They could turn on a dime. Our accommodations we great, all with a ocean view. Some people paid to get a whole ocean view, heck its a big ocean its all the same weather your're looking at all of it or a little bit of it. Our room at the hotel on the big island was really cool. Geez, you could sleep an army in there, I slept on the balcony cause I love the sound of the ocean and the nice cool air especially when they were have snow storms back home. BUT, even though there was cold snow when I got home, it was nice to get back. I love the seasons changes. Wouldn't change it for love nor money. Our crew we travelled with was a group of all sorts of people from all sorts of lives from all parts of the country.
We were very happy with our Hawaiian trip. We wanted to learn a lot about several Islands and this tour filled the bill.....Suggestions for future people who may take this trip...1. Know that you will have several airports experiences (going through an airport for a twenty minute ride or a 4 hour ride... IT IS STILL AN AIRPORT!...We were in 9 airports total. 2. The hotels were gorgeous but we were traveling as three guests in one room. We understood that we would be able to get a roll-away for the third guest. We were not able to get the third bed in three hotels. Hotels had double and not queen size beds so made for uncomfortable sleeping.
This tour was fantastic. The only negative I have is the air arrangements and I understand this is done through a third party. Knowing this, I will book my own air in the future.
On the Globus tour our guide was excellent. We had a GREAT time in Hawaii. Everything was well planned, the meals were excellent, and we are glad we took the trip. Thank you to our agent and our tour guide for helping to make this a once in a life time trip.
I had an Awesome time on our Grand Hawaiian Vacation. Each Island was just so beautiful. We had great weather. Our tour Director did such an awesome job, in juggling all our different needs and wants. She did go the extra mile for us. We also had outstanding Bus Drivers. In June will be our next tour. I know it will be another wonderful tour. I love Traveling with Globus
