My husband and I went to the PCC in July, taking their coach bus transportation ($19) round trip from Waikiki. The guide who accompanied us on the bus ("Cousin Walter") offered to guide us around the PCC for the day for $10 each. It was a waste of time and money! We were taken to activities (palm leaf weaving, bolo-like exercise balls, etc.) that were uninteresting and time-consuming. Then we were "parked" at canal-side benches a good 30 minutes before the canoe pageant started. Another waste of time & absolutely no need to get "the best seats". We would have enjoyed it & learned so much more on our own.
