“The “Waikiki Walk Story” with Kumu Malia was a transformative and enlightening experience. Her knowledge of Hawaiian culture and history, her storytelling abilities, and her musical talents contributed to an unforgettable journey into the heart of Waikiki. She skillfully revealed a number of interesting historical and cultural accounts, as well as natural landmarks that go unnoticed by countless tourists and even local residents. Her ability to weave captivating narratives, combined with her warm and friendly demeanor, added a unique flavor and genuine interest to her presentations, making us feel more connected to the places. We wholeheartedly recommend this tour as it offered a rare, unique perspective. Thank you, Kumu Malia, for providing us with such a remarkable and cherished experience!” – John & Phyllis E
