Hawaii's Polynesian Cultural Center, located an hour's scenic drive from Waikiki, is one of the top Oahu attractions. The six native villages give you the rare chance to participate in the daily adventures of Hawaiian and other South Pacific cultures. Add Hawaii's most authentic luau and the world's largest Polynesian night show, and you'll see why every trip to Hawaii should include a visit to the Polynesian Cultural Center.
The six island villages showcase the Polynesian cultures of Hawaii, Samoa, Fiji, New Zealand, Tonga and Tahiti. Real Polynesians share knowledge about their traditional customs and you can watch the demonstrations or join in. Take a canoe ride on the lagoon and cook a meal in the Samoan village. Kids will love getting ink tattoos, spear throwing, ukulele lessons and fishing.
No evening at the center would be complete without "Ha: Breath of Life", an ancient, yet universal tale. Over 100 native performers dressed in authentic attire will share their traditions and culture with you. See exciting fire walkers and knife dancers. this package does not include the "Ha breath of life" evening show.

Friends recommended this tour and it was excellent! One day is not enough time to really experience the information offered here on all the cultures that came together to live in Hawaii. For example, we did not have time to see all the demonstrations of cooking, weaving, etc. The main shows for each nation were very informative as well as fun!
Great place and fabulous show!!!!! Well above any lua we have been to!! We visited the cultural center which was interesting well done with beautiful surroundings first. Then we went to the dinner and show. Save foom for the roasted pig it was delicious. The show was top notch, absolutely beautiful!!! A definate must see and do!!
This is a great way to immerse yourself in the culture of the Polynesian Islands. You'll learn about their history, food, travel, belief systems, dances, music and society in general. You can explore on your own, or take a guide. There are shows at the different sites throughout the day: learn how to make coconut bread, dance the hula, make coconut oil, etc. Some of the show hosts are very funny, they are all engaging. We upgraded to the Hawaiian luau, which I would call a dinner theatre. The show was entertaining, but similar to some things we had seen throughout the day. There were a few opportunities for audience participation. The dinner portion was basically a buffet of Hawaiian food there are a LOT of people to feed. It wasn't really what I was expecting. Ha, Breath of Life is the major show in the evening and it was very well done. If you do nothing else, see this show. It was different than the day's activities and worthwhile seeing. It's a busy but well maintained facility.
Viator has no proper connection and responsibility for operators actions. It was very confused, that after booking, there were no way to ask from where and when the pick up was organised. No pre information, where pick- up locations was planned. Only ask the hotel, but no info, that bus will come to booked hotel. The operator did not answer until late previous evening. Feeling to unsure situation was very frustrating. The itinerary for trip was not correct enough. The dinner was not included. The booking information gave to understand. that was included. Viator have to concentrate more to satisfy customers and ask operators to make proper information to the tours
Amazing place and learned a lot of the Polynesian culture. Must go place.
PICKUP AT HOTEL WAS CONFUSING.THE BUS DRIVER DID NOT COME OUT TO FIND US.WE HAD TO GO TO BUSES TO FIND THE RIGHT ONE. THE CULTURAL CENTER WAS AMAZING.WOULD GO AGAIN.
Really excellent tour. Upgraded to the ambassador option so we had a tour guide around the park, which was really good. So much to do and plenty of time to spend at the park. Loved it.
Great experience and very educational. Workers were students earning their college education and showed pride in sharing their polynesian cultures. Center was very clean and staff friendly. Highlight of our trip.
This was an excellent tour. The bus picked us up near our hotel and we arrived at the Polynesian Cultural Center just as it opened for the day. We were able to organize our day to see all of the featured presentations in each of the villages. The meal was also included and all of the food was great. There was time afterward to see the imax movie that was also part of the park admission and then we attended the Ha show which was spectacular. This tour is well worth the price and highly recommended when you are visiting Oahu.
We enjoyed this and would recommend it. We drove ourselves and I would probably take a bus if I did it again.
This is a wonderful experience in all Polynesian Cultures. They interaction between the staff and visitors is perfect. The evening show Ha or Breath of Life is fantastic. We had a great time. We did the Island Style Buffet and this was only mediocre. Next time we would upgrade to the better Luau.
We loved it, we had to go back the next day as we wanted to see and experience everything! An amazing place, everybody was so helpful and friendly too. We just wished the weather was better, it rained the whole time we were there, but we bought three rain ponchos and carried on I think it would be great if unberellas were loaned at the entrance and handed back in as you exit
Unbelievable !!! Wow, what a great time we had on our honeymoon. Will surely revisit the Polynesian Cultural Center on our next visit to Oahu. Great Value !
Had a great time here! We ate in the Prime Dining room. Good was outstanding and the servers were fabulous! The Breath of Life Show was beautiful!
The 5 of us had a great night out. Food was terrific plenty to choose for me being coeliac. Our 2 year old grand-daughter had a fantastic time. Bus driver offered plenty of information. Overall wonderful experience.
Very nice but I booked the wrong tour. Thought I was going to see the whole thing but unfortunately I did not understand that booking Twilight package there would only be an hour to see the villages. Very disappointed. Not their fault. It's been forty years since I was there so I wanted to see EVERYTHING. Luau was a great show.
Really enjoyable, only regret was we didn't get to spend more time at the cultural center. probably should have selected the day tour ending with the Luau rather than the twilight tour.
