4.0 out of 5 stars A Mixed Bag January 21, 2006
When you are packing your bags for Hawaii, you might want to see this first, even if it is a mixed bag. First the negatives: the voice quality of the narration and the script. On the other hand it does show the first time visitor places and things that aren't always shown on other disks. In fact as someone who's been going for over thirty years I saw a few things I've missed. So, considering the fact this is an inexpensive disk, I'd say go ahead and get it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spectacular photography and a great travel guide May 10, 2006
Excellent introduction to the Hawaiian Islands. Spectacular photography and interesting narrative. As a former resident of Hawaii, I feel this video gives a great look at the islands and makes me want to return very soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect guide to plan a trip to Hawaii! May 21, 2007
By Yuki
I loved the beautiful scenes, music and narration in this video! It showed me Hawaii's top beaches, the most famous places to surf, the shopping and nightlife, stunning mountains that are over 2 miles high and even where Hawaii's king's ruled. A book only gives you a vague idea of what to see, but after watching this I know exactly where I want to go on each island. I'm using this travel guide to plan my first trip and I can't wait for this vacation of a lifetime!

5.0 out of 5 stars Watch this DVD, then book your Hawaiian vacation January 5, 2007
I grew up on the east coast and hadn't been to Hawaii and didn't know what to expect. This video was an excellent way to see what Hawaii has to offer from its beautiful beaches to its explosive volcanoes and rich culture. And the range of the music is astonishing - it reflects the diverse cultures of Hawaii (over half are of Asian descent), including Japanese, Chinese, Filipinos, Polynesians, etc. In addition, Hawaii has amazing natural wonders from mountains to tropical rainforests, beaches and coral reefs and the music captures the moods for the landscapes. I counted almost 20 different songs and I tried to summarize some of the music below:

1 - Popular Hawaiian music with guitars and Ukuleles for the Hula, plus traditional Hawaiian chants.

2- Peaceful new age and avant-garde music to capture the mystical nature of sites like Iao Valley and Mt. Haleakala, which is over 10,000 feet high.

3- Rock n roll to reflect the excitement of surfing, swimming and sailing.

4- Tropical Latin music with Trumpets, Timbales and Brass captures Honolulu's exciting nightlife.

5- There is classical music with Flutes, Piccolos, and Harps, which reflects the majesty of underwater sea life including coral and beautiful fish.

6- And to mirror the diversity of Hawaiians, there is Polynesian music, country bluegrass with dueling banjos (surprise -- Hawaii has one of the largest cattle ranches in the USA), soul music, and even some swing music for nostalgia.

7- Pearl Harbor's music conveys a shocking anxious tone as it shows historical footage of the attack.

8- And there is supernatural music for the ancient Hawaiian sites, suspenseful music for the active volcanoes and tranquil music for beach scenes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hawaii DVD May 24, 2007
Having been only to Maui twice (did not have the time to visit the other islands on my trips), and eagerly awaiting a time when I can return, this DVD does a fair job of showing the beauty that is the Hawaiian islands. So whether you are planning a trip or biding your time until your next trip, for $10 this is a great buy.

1.0 out of 5 stars I do not recommend. January 26, 2013
By Shannon
Verified Purchase
Because I don't like to focus on the negative I've never reviewed an item I've purchased and been unhappy with but felt compelled to do so today.

Watching the video was a struggle due to the voice of the narrator and the poorly written script. It sounds as though the script was written several decades ago and being spoken with a high pitched, nasally voice made it rough to get through. The video spends more time than necessary on the volcanoes and giving tours of the interior of museums and inside the Parker ranch home. Seriously, who cares that there's a painting of Venice over the bed in the Venician room.

When watching a video tour of Hawaii I would hope to see more of the beaches and tropical areas and less of the camera shooting a fishtank and a wall mural of King Kamehamehaha.

Not sure this video is even worth donating to the local library.

I feel this may be a bit harsh but I'm being honest.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful truly awful February 23, 2010
Verified Purchase
This has to be one of the most annoying and terrible DVD's I have watched in a long time. The narration is absolutely cringeworthy, boring and to be honest if this was the only thing I saw about Hawaii I might not even bother going.

Some of the camera work is not too bad but the music, dear god the music. Who chose this drivel. This inane, probably royalty free dross that fills in every single minute of this dreadful DVD.

There is clearly a whole in the market for some good tourist videos about Hawaii, but I have yet to find it and this certainly isn't it. It's going straight in the bin.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoy tour of Hawaii March 27, 2011
Verified Purchase
The video was really well done and opens a new world of the 50th State. The voice over was a little scripted but if you overlook that you will find an enjoyable 60 min tour of the Islands.

This video is excellent. I am using it to plan a trip to Hawaii. The only minor issue I have with it is the music in the background. I would rather just listen to the speaker.
