I booked the flower lei to give my Granddaughter a fun way to begin her first visit to Hawaii. The lady that greeted us was friendly, and the leis were beautiful but not fragrant, the experience was unmemorable. She just put the leis around our necks and left. Didn't even offer to take pictures. Totally not indicative of the Hawaiian spirit and definitely not worth the price. Will not use this service in the future.
I dreamed of visiting Hawaii all my life! Part of that dream was getting a Lei upon landing at the airport......I had that dream fulfilled and I felt very important as no one else seemed to be doing this! A beautiful girl in traditional clothes greeted myself and my daughter while another man held a sign that had our names on it. We had our beautiful, full lei's placed around our necks and were warmly welcomed! Perfect!
Once I actually found the greeter with my lei several persons from other travel companies were also wearing purple and white aloha attire and a lot of these greeters were holding the same types of lei for a large tour company, it was fine. The greeter was very plesant, and the lei lasted for several days.
