Frequently Asked Questions
Are greetings recommended for those with allergies or sensitivity to fragrances?
For those with allergies and sensitivity to fragrances, we recommend booking the Kukui nut, Shell, Ti Leaf, Cigar or Purple Orchid leis. Leis made of Tuberose have a very rich and concentrated fragrance.
How long will my lei last?
Leis made of purple orchid flowers will generally last a day and maybe even longer if well cared for. Spray your lei with water or cover with damp paper towels and store it in the fridge for later use. Ti leaf leis are considered good luck and can last much longer. With proper care, Kukui nut leis and shell leis can last forever.
How will I recognize my greeter?
Your greeter wears a purple aloha shirt and meets you outside of your flight's gate with your name on a sign.
What if my flight is delayed?
Your greeter will know your exact arrival time based on flight number and airline. While greeters will generally be able to wait for delayed flights, in instances with excessive delays into after hours greeters will try to deliver the lei to your hotel or arrange a departure greeting instead. Otherwise, a full refund is available. Please contact Hawaii Lei Greetings right away if there are any changes to flight numbers.
What happens if I miss my lei greeting?
While there are no refunds, a greeter can drop off your leis to your hotel. Please provide your accommodation when you book.

Richard was awesome as was the rest of your staff. A missed plane, a broken plane and a late arrival made me believe no one would... be waiting. Instead there stood Richard with a placard and an escort to our luggage and directions to the rental car agency. Thank you for making this first trip to Hawaii one to remember. more
It was a great greeting after the long plane ride! The flowers in the lei were very nice and fragrant! Beautiful colors and great ...service! more
My husband and I arrived into Honolulu for our Honeymoon and we were so happy to start our vacation with such a beautiful lei gree...ting. The tea leaf lei for my husband was the perfect contrast to my flowers and it was the best way to start an unforgettable Hawaiian vacation! more
My wife and I decided to bring our 16 yr old son and his girlfriend to Hawaii with us for our 25th wedding anniversary. We really ...didn't know how it would work out, But we are so glad we did. We had the time of our lives and so did the kids. When we arrived at Honolulu and my wife received the flower lei, it seemed to set the tone fore the rest of the week. Thanks so much for a great time. We will be back more
I ordered the wedding leis for my son & his new bride for when they walked off the plane in Honolulu. They were so surprised a...nd excited to receive the leis & greeting. they said the greeter was so nice and gracious. Thank you for making newlyweds feel the Aloha spirit!!! I would definately do this again. Melinda Sofio more

Sincerely, Marla Stephens President Creative Media Concepts San Diego more
High quality lei's...buy from this seller!
A friendly person was at our gate to present my wife and my 2 boys with a lei greeting. Everything went just as planned.
My daughter and I traveled to Hawaii alone and were both scared and excited to be there. We were welcomed at the Honolulu Airport... by a wonderful young man who held up a sign w/ both our names and placed lovely flower leis around our necks. I felt so at home! more
What a wonderful way to be greeted upon arrival. This activity truly conveys the spirit of Aloha.
The young lady who met us at the airport was so very pleasant. I would have preferred to order a real flower lei but wanted somet...hing to keep as a remembrance of the experience so I opted for the silk lei. It was a great start to our visit to Hawaii. I loved every minute of it. more
Wow the lei's were just beautiful what a way to start off a vacation than to see loved one's in a beautiful hand made le...i. My grandson really like his candy lei thanks a million for the beautiful lei's more
Greeted by very nice staff, leis were well worth money. Received many compliments! We felt very special.
Our Lei Greeter was precious! Friendly, bubbly, sweet! What a nice extra touch upon visiting Hawaii for the first time!
The lei greeting was fantastic. The Hawaiian greeter was waiting for us and the lei's were beautiful.The Hawaiian greeter was... very friendly and very helpful. He helped us with the ordering of the limousine and he kept us company until the limousine arrived. We arrived at about 8:30pm and he stayed with us till about 9:30pm when the limousine arrived.He took our picture with the lei's and the limousine in behind us.This was above and beyond our expectations.This was our first time in Hawaii and he made us feel very welcome. Him staying with us was great. We were worried that we would be left deserted at the airport,and he made sure this didn't happen. The fellow was interesting and his conversation was welcome.The lei greeting was a very nice experience. more

My parents loved the personal touch and service.

The staff was waiting at the airport just as advertised and really made me and my gursts feel welcome to Hawaii! I brought fami...ly and they are still talking about the lei greeting at the airport! more
We ordered our Lei Greeting on the internet to surprize our first timers when they arrived in Hawaii. They were shocked to see som...eone standing there with a sign with their names on it. They had no idea we had ordered them. The girl that greeted us was as sweet and pleasant as anyone could have been, she presented the Lei's beautifully and made sure everyone was happy. She also told us which baggage area we should pick up or baggage and told us how to get there. We could'nt have asked for a more perfect way to start our Hawaiin vacation. more
Excellent. It was exactly as I planned.
Trust Hawaii Activities with all your tour needs.
i got off the plane in hawaii and the person to give me the lei was there she was really nice and answered all my questions pat ol...son more

To make my boyfriend's first visit to Hawaii extra special I ordered a lei greeting for him at the airport departure gate. H...e was so surprised and thankful.

The lei's were beautiful and my girls loved them
I'm sorry I can't remember our lei greeter's name. What a great first impression of Hawaii. She was extremely sweet... and interested in what we had planned for our vacation. she was also very helpful in taking us to baggage claim and helping us find our shuttle to our hotel,that was not a requirement, she went over and above our expectations! Thank you for starting our vacation off with that great aloha spirit, we heard so much about, before arriving. more
Our greeter was there waiting for us as we exited the plane. She was extremely friendly and helpful. Thanks!!!
Being a first time visitor to the state of Hawaii this was a great experience for myself and a friend. The greeters were right the...re as we came off the airplane with our name and a big smile!!! They were also so very helpful to show us the way to transportation. I feel they went beyond the nescessary greet. Would deffinatly recomend this greeting to all who go but especialy to first time visitors. more
first time visitor
well worth it
Great way to start a trip
What a breeze in ordering...What a joy for the clients when they were met with their flower lei greeting. Excellent Service!
Our greeter did a fantastic job, extremely friendly and set the tone for our vacation. Good way to start off!!
Lei Greeting was a big hit Thanks
The lei greeting is an unforgettable experience. It is such a special welcome and very worth the cost. Our greeter was very help...ful! more
I was so thrilled to see our greeter with our names on a card after we arrived five hours late. I was so sure no one would show u...p at 8:30 p.m. when we were supposed to arrive at 2:17. It was the first time my husband ever got leid! Thank you! more
Ted and Glenna Stark
Didn't get the name of our delivery girl, but after we received our lei, she helped us out by taking us directly to the busse...s that would take us to our airport. I've since found that there are several other services like this, and dozens of shops near China Town, but in the end, I still felt this was the best value overall for what we received as a bonus; the assitance. more
Loved the greeting and the cheerful attitude of the greeter. Was a perfect end to a long boring flight.
I surprised my husband's first visit to Hawaii with a lei greeting . . . how can you go and not have a lei greeting anyway? ...They were right there when we arrived, escorted us to baggage claim and then contacted and escorted us to our shuttle which we had not expected. That was great since we were not sure where and how far we had to go to get our luggage, etc. I would highly recommend Hawaii Activities to everyone and would probably contact them again for my next visit. more
The staff was very close by with the most beautiful leis I have ever seen. They smelled so wonderful and made us feel so special ...especially since it was our 1st time to hawaii as well as our Honeymoon!! WE LOVED IT!! more
I wanted a traditional Hawaiian greeting for my wife and friends when they arrived. It was absolutely great. It could not have sta...rted her vacation to the islands after a long flight onj a better note. She has been wearing the Lei everywhere she goes. more
This was a wonderful greeting for our sisters vacation to Kauai. Our greeter Leilani was wonderful. She met us at our gate in Hono...lulu with a cheery Aloha greeting and beautiful flower leis. She showed us the garden area and took pictures for us. She also escorted us to our connecting flight. This gave us a great start to a terrific Hawaiian vacation. Thank you Leilani and Honolulu Lei Geetings. more

The lei greeter that we got was really nice and treated us well. Even my wife (who I surprised with this) liked it. She sent us t...o the shuttle that would take us to our rented car and answered any questions we wanted to ask. I would recommend this to anyone! more
The lei was beautiful (we went with the superior lei). The greeter was very friendly and helpful!
I arranged for the lei greeting to surprise my son and his new bride. Their flight was 3 hours late but at 1 am they were greeted... at the gate...that is above and beyond the call of duty! If only the car rental people had been so customer oriented. Thanks for being there. I would have read your comment board guidelines but they were in Japanese! more
ORDER 3 LEI'S FOR THE KIDS AND DIDN'T TELL THEM.FLIGHT WAS 2 HOURS LATE SO ACCORDING TO THE VOUCHER IF THEY MISS YOU AT ...THE AIRPORT THEY WOULD DELIVER TO HOTEL.WHEN WE DEPLANED THERE SHE WAS AND THE KIDS LOVED IT.THE NICE YOUNG GIRL EVEN WALKED US HALFWAY TO BAGGAGE CLAIM.THIS WAS A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE. more
Our greeter met us with a big smile, with our name on a sign outside the gate when we arrived. She offered to take our picture, a...nd lead us to the restrooms, baggage area, found our transportation for us. She was WONDERFUL! I would recommend this service to everyone. Jeannie more
Rick & Jeannie Morgan
Great experience for anyone arriving in Hawaii! The greeter was waiting with a name sign and welcome message just as ordered onlin...e. She gave us each a lovely, full flowered orchid lei where many other people on our flight receiving lei greetings were getting a lei with a large space between the flowers. We ordered the standard lei greeting, so I would imagine the deluxe ones would be even more beautiful. She chatted with us while taking us to the baggage claim area and gave us some great ideas for sightseeing etc. I'd highly recommend this company! more
Our greeter was right there waiting for us when we got off the plane, She had a sign saying happy 30th anniversary that was great,... It was awesome to be greeted that way. She walked us all the way to the baggage claim and helped up find the shuttle personnel to get us on the right track. She was GREAT! The flowers were fresh and beautiful everyone at the airport had their eyes on us. Yes I would do it again! Out of all the lei's we got in hawaii these were the BEST!!!! more
Irma & Louis Hernandez
Our flight got in and hour early! They were there with smiles! Quality of the Leis were out of this world. Our greeter was polite ...and willing to do whatever was necessary to make our trip a memorable one. She offered to escort through out the airport if needed. She handled our 5 year old daughter as a princess and newly crowned hula girl. You would be remiss if you do not spend the little required to have this memorable event in your travels. more
It was great. Our plane was 20 early and they were still there to greet us
Our greeter, Leilani, was at arrival gate with 2 beautiful leis and a huge smile. She walked us to transportation after calling to...wn car company, took pictures for us, and waited with us until the car arrived, never failing to smile and chat freely. The leis have lasted over 3 days and still look fabulous! more
JoAnn, WA State
Beautiful greeting. As others have said, the person who met us was extremely helpful, very friendly and full of valuable advice. ... She went above and beyond what was expected! more
After such a long flight (over 9 hrs), it was great to be greeted with the beautiful leis provided by Honolulu Lei Greetings. Thei...r representative was very welcoming. She physically showed us to the baggage claim area and answered all of our questions about leaving the airport. She even made suggestions that saved us time going to the rental car lots. Thank you for helping us start our Oahu vacation with a smile! more
Even though our flight was 1 & 1/2 hours late from Chicago the greeter was at the gate, Lei's in hand with the family nam...e on a placard waiting for our flight!!! Great start to ur 35th Anniv. vacation. more

My husband was so surprised by the leis and it was truely a great start to a wonderful trip.
Our experience with our Lei greeting was awesome. We had a woman named Melia (I think that is the spelling). She was wonderful. S...he was holding up the sign with our name and she was very visable and we were greeted with a welcoming smile and hug. After that she brought us to our luggage and waited there with us until we got our luggage and then she made sure we found our Ilima driver for our ride to our hotel. On the walk to the luggage she suggested some things to do and see while we were in Honolulu. Our experience was great and we would 100% recommend them to anyone! more
It was really nice to be greeted at the airport with leis after our 9 hour flight. The lady was waiting at the gate for us and sh...e was very friendly - she gave me a hug along with my lei :) Our orchid leis were very beautiful and full - we received numerous compliments on them. It was a very nice way to be welcomed to Hawaii on our honeymoon! more
For our 15th anniversary, I surprised my wife with Honeymoon Leis and silk leis for our kids. They were delightfully surprised to... be greeted by our friendly greeter as we arived in Honolulu. The leis were beautiful. Our greeter showed us through the airpoert to our connecting flight and was very helpful with island information. more
I made the arrangements so far in advance to surprise my wife that I forgot I had made them. We were equally surprised when we go...t off the plan and saw the greeter holding our name in the air! The quality of the lei's were excellent and the greeter was extremely friendly. She escorted us to our baggage claim and made sure we were able to get to our ground transportation. Very well done and highly recommended, especially for first timers. more
What a surprise for my wife. It was our 25th anniversary and her first time in Honolulu. The Lei greeting was the icing on the cak...e as she had seen this many times on TV. The staff member met us as promised with a fantastic matching Lei for each of us. My one regret is that real flowers don't last but it was worth it. She then gave us assistance by guiding us to the inter-island terminal. more
I surprised my husband and two daughters by getting a Lei Greeting at the Airport.....and it was absolutely wonderful! The BEAUTI...FUL young lady was waiting for us right as we got off the plane....holding up a sign with all of our names...and then after the AWESOME surprise of my family.....she presented us all with a gorgeous lei of orchids...everyone was really surprised and it made a terrific start to our vacation....She also walked us to baggage claim and then helped me find our driver....very, very helpful and a real sweetheart........I highly recommend this for anyone coming to Hawaii.....you won't forget it!!! more
Pam from Florida
Gave the lei greeting to our daughter and her fiance. She said it was beautiful and that it started the island vacation off to a ...wonderful start! The greeter was very friendly and even went out of her way to escort them to baggage claim! more
First time in Hawaii the lady made us fell very welcome and helped us get our luggage and find our ride.
This is a must do for first time travelers to Hawaii!! They were waiting on us as we got off the plane, hold a sign with our names... on it!! It was a great experience!!! more
This is the second time I've taken advantage of this activity. The staff meets right at the plane and makes the experience a ...unforgetable start to a Hawaiian vacation. The staff is outstanding, the lei's are beautiful, and the experience well worth the price. more
My parents enjoyed this suprise - the lady who met them was very helpful :)
I did this as a surprise for my daughter, she loved it. She was greeted as she got off the plane and after receiving the lei the a...gent helped take her to baggage claim. Great experience! Thanks more
It was so nice to have your staff member waiting with sign for our Leis...I was thrilled..
This was a wonderful reception to Hawaii. The Lei Greeter was so helpful to us. She greeted us, gave us our leis, took us over to... get out bags from the airport terminal, and helped us get information about sites and events in Hawaii. Wonderful, Wonderful!! We would recommend this to anyone traveling to Hawaii, especially your first time. more
My parents flew to Hawaii for the first time and I wanted to make sure they were greeted the "Aloha Way" with a beautifu...l, fresh Hawaiian Lei. Before they left, I mentioned to them to pay attention for their names when they land in Hawaii. Amazing! The lady was waiting and my parents LOVED IT!! It started their vacation on a great note. My mom was so surprised and thrilled. She wore her lei all week!! It's been 10 days and the lei is still full bloom, fresh and gorgeous. I drove over to their house last night and saw it myself. She brought it back! She was so excited and the one point she made, "my lei was much bigger and fuller than everyone else's". She felt special. It was very nice. Thank you so much!! A million mahalo's!! more
Andrea -- Chicago, IL
Buying flowers for teenage boys is always a gamble, but Maleia (spelled wrong) was simply wonderful. She welcomed my teenage grand...sons and I with open arms of Hawaiian friendship, set the tone for our entire vacation and even stayed with us when our luggage was lost and escorted us to the shuttle bus for our rental car...and, Oh! - the three lei's were breathtakingly beautiful! This was a wonderful experience! Mahalo! more
This was a surprise for our first-time to Oahu (40th Birthday Celebration). It was so nice to receive after a long plane flight, ...not to mention the lei quality! We also received valuable "airport" tips for our trip home as well as great ideas of things to do on the islands. We really enjoyed it and highly recommend! more

This was a great experience. We were greeted in a very timely manner. Though our flight was late. Not only was she very pleasant,... outgoing, and informative, she assisted us in contacting our limo service which was over an late and keep us company until they arrived. The lei is perfect and gave us real sense of welcome. Aloaha. more
This was the best! I thought it was so important to do as a first timer, and would highly recommend it to anyone! Not only was i...t a great surprise for my family, the gal who greeted us was full of valuable information for us. She also walked us to the luggage pick up AND made sure we found our transportation driver before leaving. I would HIGHLY recommend this service. It was a GREAT start to a very special family vacation! more
My wife & daughter were so suprised to see someone holding their names on a sign. The person who met us was outstanding. She h...elped us with pictures and guided us to met our transportation. more
What a nice treat after getting off an 11 hour plane ride! The woman who greated us was SO nice and helpful. She took pictures of ...us, got us maps of the area and even walked us to the rental car shuttle. Above and beyond our expectations. Plus, the lei's were beautiful. A truly special way to start our Hawaiian vacation more
the young lady that met us was awsome she showed us the true spirit of aloha in hawaii. the leis we recieved were truly beautiful....taking us through the airport to our baggage and than calling the limo service for us ,this greeting service is top notch and we must say a big big mahalo to all that we encountered.you started our vacation off right we could not have asked for anything better...if you dont get this service you have missed something truly you would not get elsewhere..again mahalo al n kathie becker more
I scheduled a lei greeting for my mom and she was absolutely surprised and excited to have such a unique greeting to the island. T...he greeter who "leied" her was extremely friendly and helpful. The silk lei was really beautiful and will be a wonderful memento. I am going to suggest this activity to all my friends and will probably book another greeting for our next visitors. Thank you so much! more
This is definitely something for a first-timer to hawaii. Its probably not something i will do again, but definitely enjoyable fo...r my first visit! flowers were beautiful, and the lady was very nice and walked us to our baggage claim and helped us with our rental. more
The Lei was stunning....I would really suggest this for anyone...my other hald wasstunned literally to see his name up on a board ...and wishing him a Happy Birthday as well upon arrival right out of the gate....then the delight to be walked to the baggae pick up area and pointed in the right direction to the car rentals...when you have never been there before these little things mean the most....thanks for the memories...we'll never forget the hospitality !!!! Mahola !!!! more
This was a very pleasant surprise for the rest of our group who did not expect this welcome in Hawaii. The person greeting us at t...he airport welcomed each one of us individually and was then prepared to take numerous photos in a suitable location outside the airport arrival area. She then also made sure that we get to our prebooked bus on time. Definitiely worth it especially for 1st timers and for special events. If you want to make your hliday in Hawaii something to remember, start with a lei welcome right at the airport, it puts everyone in the right mood no matter how long the flight. more
The greeter was friendly, informative and extremely helpful. She was able to answer all our questions and helped us through the a...irport and to our transportation. We felt very special getting the leis while the other people on the plane just walked by with no one there to greet them. more
I booked this for couple on their arrival to Oahu and was worried being it was done on the internet that they would not receive th...eir lei. BUT.... Was extremely excited when I received word that they had got their greeting and that it made their arrival so special. Not only did they get amazing help and support at the airport, but they got to keep the personalized sign!! We are so thrilled that we are booking another greeting for another couple that are going over!!! *** Their plane even arrived 55 min late and the greeter was ready and waiting for them at the gate!!! Amazing! Thanks for making it memorable! more
We were greated at the gate by a pleasant young lady w beautiful, thick, fragrant leis. She escorted us to baggage claim and direc...ted us to our waiting car.. Thank you for the excellent service and quality product. The young lady was especially nice. more
The greeter is always on time, welcoming and helpful. Will use this service everytime we go to Hawaii. Thanks for helping us start... our trip! more
Took my mother to Hawaii for her 70th b-day. She was surprised when we got the leis. The lady who did it was very nice and gave us... a lot of helpful tips and directions around the airport. Lei lasted, at the advice of the lady, for a few days. more
The lady who greeted us was fantastic and very very helpful
Must do if this is your first time to Hawaii, staff is very helpfull Aloha spirit is alive and well with this company. Be prepared... to tip your greeter, they do not expect a tip but iy is always good to support the industry. more
Steve & Dianne
Our plane was late and we had a sweet lady waiting for us. I would use this company time and time again. They can be trusted!
Outstanding job! Unknown to us at that time our airline changed arrival gates. As a result, there was no Lei greeting for our 2nd ...Grader upon arrival. The great HA staff tracked us down in the baggage area and delivered the Lei greeting. Their extra effort was appreciated and was a great start to our visit to Oahu. more
I got my friends lied for their first trip here and they loved it. The quality of the leis was outstanding.
The young lady that greeted us at the Airport did a fabulous job. This was our families first time to the islands and my family h...ad no idea that we were going to be greeted with the most beautiful lei's. Thank you for your help in starting our vacation out with a bang. Layne DeLapp Hillsboro, Or more
Was the most amazing experience!
More than what I expected. Greeter was very pleasant and professional. Would definitly recommend this activity.
What a fun start to our Hawaii trip! We were not just met, but truly welcomed to Hawaii, and were given beautiful, rich, leis to w...ear. Our greeter accompanied us to the baggage collection area (which is a 5-minute walk) and made sure we knew our transportation options for getting to our hotel. more
I purchased Lei's for my daughters who went to Honolulu for their first time. Both of them were thrilled as they got off the... plane and met by the greeter with their Lei's. It will be something that they will remember. The Lei's were beautiful. Photo attached. It's the best money I have spent for flowers in a long time. more

Our greeter was waiting for us as promised, holding a sign with our name on it so we could easily identify her. She had a great s...mile, warmly welcomed us to Hawai'i and then was kind enough to escort us through the airport so we could quickly find the baggage area before she had to leave us. Leis were absolutely beautiful! more
I really enjoyed receiving my Lei at th Honolulu Airport. My greeter was there waiting for me with a big smile. She made sure to... ask my plans as far as lodging and transportation to make sure I made it to my destination. It was well worth it. more
My husband was really happy when we were greeted upon arrival to Honolulu. The rep was prompt and out names were clearly visible w...hen we arrived. The rep was friendly and helpful, she helped us find the baggage claim. Thanks for a wonderful welcome. more
This was the perfect way to start our honeymoon! They were there waiting for us with our beautiful leis that lasted for days!!
The Hawaiian Lei my girlfriend received as we departed the airplane was a complete surprise and began our trip on a perfect note. ... The Lei was beautiful! and she wore it all 4 days we were in Hawaii and took it home to the mainland. She received numerous compliments as we walked throughtout Waikiki. more
Lei service was wonderful! Received on arrival at airport, our flight landed 30 minutes early, which made me a little nervous cons...idering this lei service was for my kids, but the greeter was ready and waiting, even took our picture Thank you for making our Hawaiian arrival extra special. more
Hi - I would highly recommend the lei greeting. This was for our 1st time to Hawaii and we were getting married in Ohau. I wante...d to surprise my bride to be with a lei greeting. The lei's were absolutely beautiful and was the best lei we got in Hawaii. Great value for the quality of the flowers.... more
Was met at the gate on my flight's arrival. Staff was very friendly and welcoming to the Islands. They were also very helpfu...l in navigating through the airport more
We had a great experience when we landed in Hawaii. Your company had a representative waiting for us as we deplaned with a our nam...es on a sign. I was thrilled to have everything occur as promised. You started our trip off perfectly. We will definitely use your service again and will let all of our friends know as well. Thanks again! more
I was so impressed. Right off the plane was a girl holding a sign with our names and put our leis on us. They were beautiful. The ...girl was wonderful. She was genuinely friendly with a huge smile and welcome for us. She then walked us to baggage claim and told us where we were to meet the rental car shuttle. She even took our picture with our camera. This is the Hawaiian greeting I was hoping for but never expected!!! Thank you so much!!! My parents brought our kids a week later and I had the same lei greeting for them. They were pleasantly surprised. I will do this on all of our visits and highly recommend it to everyone! more
Everyone should get leid lol!!!!!!!! when they arrive in Hawaii. Perfect way to start your vacation.
Recommend to everyone.
WOW is all I can say the lei's were so beautiful. They were both hand made and massive definitely worth the money. Large or...chids made up the lei's and they were very fragrant. The greeter happened to make my husbands lei the day before. She was really sweet and chatty, she offered to take us to the baggage pickup location and answered questions we had. Our flight was delayed 3 hours and had a gate change but our greeter was there right when we came off the plane. A must for first timers and everyone repeat Hawaiian traveler. I plan to utilize them again on our return next year. more
This was a great surprise for my family. After a 11 hour flight, they were excited by the surprise at the gate. Your employees w...ere also very helpful with details of the airport and transportation questions and recommendations. more
This was our 21st visit to the islands but the first for our grandsons fiance. The greeting was for her and it was everything we h...oped for and more. We were very satisfied and she was estatic. Thank you for a wonderful experience once again. The Lindhorsts more
Delux Lei Greeting
I ordered this for my 6 year old daughter, who it was her first vacation to Hawaii and on a plane. When we got off the plane we w...ere greeted by a woman in a hawaiian dress holding a sign with my daughters name on it.. My daughter was SO excited! She loved her Lei which was perfect and not too big for her little neck. The flowers stayed beautiful during our week long vacation and my daughter loved them hanging off the lamp shade by our bed. An extra bonus was the lei greeter had 2 extra lei's and gave them to us at no charge so we got lei's for the whole family. I would reccomend this for any one who wants to start thier vacation out right!! My daughter loved it and I loved seeing her so happy! more
This was a great service that I just happened upon in a website. I convinced my wifes cousin to do this for his wife also. This ...was Lois and my 40th wedding anniversary trip. Although our plane was late you were right there as promised. The Leis were beautiful and the others in the group were very jealous. The greeter even volunteered and took the time to photograph us with our camera! Very nice as this will most like be our one and only trip to Hawaii. Thank you. I would recommend this service to all Hawaii vacationers. Very unique and a great Aloha to the islands. more
This was a once in a lifetime trip for my family. The lei greeting was a great beginning to a fabulous vacation. I wasnt expecti...ng her to not only greet us off the plane but also help us get our luggage and take us to our next destination point. My only concern would be, if this was a surprise for someone I could see how someone would walk by them and not read the signs to see that the lei greeting was for them. more

Everything was as promised. The plane was met immediately upon arrival, the leis were beautiful, and the lasted a full week. Gre...at way to start a Hawaiian vacation!! more
For first timers, couples, honeymooners, and or families, this special treat of receiving a Lei once you have landed, is a special... time. Never thought we would experience such an event, but when we arrive from our red eye flight and just outside the gate, we were greeted with our Lei's that also came with a special note that you can prepared by this company for your Loved one. I chose the cheaper "silk lei" so it would last forever, vs the fresh flowered lei. If it's your first time to vist the islands, surprise her, as they will be waiting for you to depart the plane with your name and message on a sign. more
We were greeted at the gate. Each member of the family received a lei. It was our first visit to Hawaii and wanted this experien...ce. The greeter escorted us to our luggage and gave instructions on transportation. She also took our family picture. It was great. more
We were met as we emerged from the restricted area by a beautiful young lady who held a sign wishing our grandson Aloha to Hawaii.... She presented him with a gorgeous white and purple lei that smelled so nice. It kept for a week in the fridge. We were all happy with the way it went and she even posed for a picture with him. Keep up the good work. I recommend them 100% Thanks, a happy customer. more
We signed up for a Lei Greeting to surprise the couple who went with us to Hawaii for the first time. We signed up several months... in advance and in our busy schedules never remembered to check back with Hawaiia Activities to insure they would be there. When our flight arrived late to our delight a professionally dressed lady was there waiting with our names and 4 leis (2 women's 2 men's). The qualify was beyond any lei I have had before. It was fresh and very well made. She took pictures for us and even escorted us to baggage claim. We toted the leis from Oahu to the Big Island and a week later they were still in pretty good shape. We finally dismantled them (so not to put the plastic string into the ocean) and put only the organic material into the ocean at southpoint as we made our individual wishes. We are so glad we did this for our new Hawaii travelers as it really made great start to another magical Hawaiian trip. We plan to use Hawaii Activities again when we go nex more
Seasoned Hawaii Traveler
The Lei greeting at the Honolulu airport was very exciting. The young lady that met us was very helpful, taking photos and escorti...ng to baggage pickup along with directions for car rental shuttle. more
The Leis were so beautiful. We chose the deluxe leis and they could not have been fresher or prettier. This was a surprise for s...ome in our party and the staff member from Hawaii Activities met us right as we came out of the restricted area at the airport. She was so sweet. Our group - despite the surprise - easily identified that this was for them, and the young lady was so very welcoming that this made the perfect start to our vacation. The leis lasted for about a week when kept overnight in the refrigerator. A very happy reminder of our journey. In addition to providing the leis, the young lady was very helpful with regard to where we went for baggage, and just help getting us oriented. She answered any question any of our group had and walked with us for some time to answer them. She was so warm and so sweet!!! Thank you so much for making the start to our dream vacation so special. more
I wanted to surprise my son and daughter in law on their honeymoon visit to Hawaii. Everything went as planned and they were tota...lly surprised and impressed with the beautiful Hawaiian Couples Lei! Pictures of the two of them with their leis and ecstatic smiles was priceless! Quality was beautiful and still very aromatic and fresh! I would recommend this for anyone arriving in Hawaii! Thank you!!! more
Wonderful person met us as we got off our plane. She had our leis and travel gifts and even took our picture.
I arranged this greeting for my family as a surprise and they loved it! We felt like VIP's at the arrivals gate and the Leis ...were absolutely beautiful. Our greeter was lovely and showed us where to meet our rental car shuttle after we got our bags. Thank you! more
Such a nice way to arrive in Hawaii for first-timers. A special touch to get the holiday island romance started. Greeters were al...so helpful with airport details.. more
The lady greeted us right off the plane! Had a big sign. She was sooo super friendly said Aloha and welcome. Presented us with lei...s that looked so much better than what I saw others wearing. She also answered any questions we had. She even took the shuttle with us to show is where to collect our bags and then took us to the spot where our shuttle was picking us up and waited until we were all in and then said Aloha and mahalo. Well beyond what I expected for this service. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting the islands!! Thanks so much!! more
Excellent service and attention, even that my fligh was early 20 minutes and I was worry she won't get it , they where all r...eady there , her smile and thank you for the surprise was priceless , that I will do it again . more
I am from Maine...did a lot of research before ordering, trusted other reviews. I ordered honeymoon leis for daughter and her husb...and. Their flight was delayed: I called HI.activities and they told me, don't worry, as long as they remained on same flight, all is well. Ummm, the kids had to switch planes due to delay, and I couldn't contact HI.: too late at night. Called next morning, kids didn't get their greeting. Contacted Veltra, and barely got my name out and they said, is this about so and so? They knew who I was calling about within 2-3 minutes! I explained what happened and asked if they could go to the hotel, "no problem"...they got there within a few hours. Kids very happy...Leis look beautiful from picture we received...Thank you!! more
I would do it again. Our greeter was friendly and nice.
We had a flight number change after United bought some other airline and we arrived with nobody waiting for us for our lei greetin...g. After a few minutes I realized what happened and we went to our hotel. I was planning on calling them to beg for a refund when I got a call from their office. When I explained what happened, they offered to meet us at our departure gate when we switched islands. I thought this was a great solution and was really appreciative of the extra effort. more
Great reception for our first time in Oahu. !!!!!!!!!! **********
My parents were suprised and had rave reviews to say about their Honolulu Airport Lei Greeting. They were so thankful for the hel...p the greeting women provided at the airport. This was their first time taveling to Hawaii and they enjoyed Hawaii's true hospitality. Thank you for your service! more
Excellent experience! Very friendly greeter and beautiful leis!
Was met by Awesome greeter who even helped us all the way to bag check. She was friendly and knowledgeable. The Leis were beautifu...l. Was a Nice Hawaiian Welcome! more
The Lei was beautiful! Lasted for days! I hung the Lei on our balcony! It looked lovely hanging.
The lie was beautiful and the greeter was very pleasant. I am glad I booked one.
I recently booked a Lei Greeting for my daughter and son-inlaw. They were so impressed with the service. The greeter was extremely... friendly and went out her way to help with luggage and shuttle service. They also received many compliments on beauty and quality of their Leis from total strangers. more
The lady delivering the leis was very nice and most accomodating that she even walked with us to ensure that we found the baggage ...area. My wife loved her lei as this was her first time to Hawaii. Mine was very nice too! Would order from them again and again!! more
Ordered the medium (forgot the correct term) upgrade lei for my mom and it was lovely and lush but too heavy for her tiny senior c...itizen body. I didn't think about it being heavy! She counted 250 blossoms. It was beautiful and impressive and got comments from locals so must have been special. The greeter offered to walk us to baggage claim but we declined and got lost. The order form said orchids or plumeria or mix and I wish we could've chosen plumeria but maybe they were out of season. I didn't think to tip the greeter until we walked away and lost her. Sorry! more
The leis were beautiful and lasted until we came home
Wonderful add on to our trip!! My hubby's first time to Hawaii, wanted to give him the old time feel. It was great!!

Very friendly greeting, after a long flight was a great pick me up for my wife! our greeter walked us to our connecting flight to ...make sure we got to the right spot for the next flight and was very friendly and informative. Very nice way to start our vacation! more
when we stepped off the plane and walked about 100 ft there was a young girl standing there with a placard and my name was on it s...miling. She put them on and said aloha! very friendly!! more
Awesome Lei!!! My wife and daughter loved wearing them!! They were extremely beautiful!!!
This was something I arranged as a surprise for my wife. It was excellent. The delightful girl who met us had to wait nearly an ho...ur after we had landed due to the high number of passengers going through immigration, but she had checked where we were and was waiting for us as we came through into arrivals. The look on my wife's face when she saw the girl with our names and had the lei put round her neck was a picture. The flowers were fresh and colourful and lasted all the holiday. We had a limousine booked to take us to our hotel and the girl took the trouble to get the driver's number and phone him to find out where he was parked, then helped us to the car with our bags. My wife wore the lei all holiday and was very sad to have to leave it when we left. Altogether a wonderful experience and one we will never forget. I recommend it to anyone. more
Our lei greeter was very courteous and patient as she waited for them to disembark from the plane. Of course our guests were elat...ed with their leis as she presented to them and she even offered to take pictures for us outside the terminal. more
I ordered the Superior Lei Airport greeting and everything was spectacular. The lei was amazing. The lei was very fresh and excel...lent quality. Several people commented on how beautiful it was. more
The representative waiting for us (Rachel) was very friendly and kind. After offering to take pictures of us with our leis, she he...lped us find our way to the rental car area of the airport. Excellent service and reception that I would recommend to anyone wanting to make their first arrival in Hawaii a little special! more
Above and beyond! Our flight was delayed 7 hours, we arrived at HNL at 11:00 PM local time and I was sure the surprise greeti...ng I had planned for our family's first trip to the island would have been canceled due to the late hour. Instead, we were greeted at the gate by a beautiful, very cordial young lady who presented us with gorgeous leis and welcomed us warmly. She was very informative, took us directly to baggage claim and explained how to get to the rental car site most readily. She made lemon-aide out of the lemons we had been given by the travel delay and helped start our vacation right! Mahalo Nui Loa! more
The Leis were absolutely beautiful! The looked fresh and smelled wonderful! The were also huge!! Plus for us! We received many com...pliments while wearing them. Our greeter was very kind and was there right when we got off our flight. She answered any questions we had and helped guide us to baggage claim. I would use this service again. Amazing!! Highly recommend! more
A beautiful and incredibly sweet greeter met us as we disembarked the plane. These were a surprise for my two daughters and they f...elt like royalty. The flowers were fresh and still look great hanging in our suite 4 days later. more
I was worried because we had some airline connection problems but a quick email letting Veltra know the new arrival time and they ...were waiting for us as we walked off the plane. The leis were beautiful and the girlfriend got the HawIian greeting she was dreaming of. more
Representative Amy was waiting for us right outside our gait. She presented us with beautiful leis and escorted us to baggage clai...m, all the white answering our questions about local spots we wanted to check out. She was super friendly and even took some pictures of us wearing our leis with my friend's camera at our request. I definitely recommend this service! more
A very friendly greeting from a nice young lady that was very helpful.
What a great welcoming and aloha spirit experience. The young lady was most charming, gracious and informative about the whole Haw...ai'i experience. Answered questions and made recommendations as to sites and luau experiences I wished to take in. One great experience, something I would recommend Hawai'i travelers put their memories list! Expectations well exceeded! more
Easy and fun, made it a delightful way to land in Hawaii. The deliver was knowledgable too and helped us get to where we were goi...ng!! more
We were promptly and happily greeted by Helena as soon as we exited the gate. The leis were very nice orchids, and lasted pretty w...ell for a few days when kept in the refrigerator. more
We arranged for a lei greeting at Honolulu airport - unfortunately, our flight from San Francisco was canceled. In the rush to ge...t onto the next flight (which was within an hour of our cancelation) we forgot to inform Veltra about our flight change. When we landed in Honolulu (around 11 pm) we left a voice mail at their office - the next day they called me and then delivered 3 beautiful and fresh orchid leis (nicely packaged) to our hotel. They went above and beyond to help start a GREAT vacation. Thank you! more
The lei was beautiful and lasted a full 11 days until we through them into to the sea with thoughts to return again to Hawaii'...;s tropical paradise. more
Wonderful welcome to Hawaii! Very refreshing after the long flight and they were very helpful in helping us locate our transport a...nd even offering to carry our bags! Mahalo! more
Excellent service. Made the start of trip great. Would recommend this to anyone wanting some special treatment.
Purchased leis in advance of our trip to Honolulu. The representative met us at the gate with a clearly legible sign, two beautif...ul leis, and was very kind and professional. Highly recommend ! more
We were greated as promised with two beautiful fresh lei's and a very polite helpful young girl. She was so pleasant and help...ed us order a shuttle to our hotel. Our lei lasted nearly 6 days! more
Thank you to Veltra for making our trip to Hawaii special. Reservations for leis at the airport and our excursion to Kualoa Ranch... was easy to make and worth every penny. I appreciated the call reminders and the help I received on questions regarding reservations. more
Do the orchids!!! My husband was surprised and they lasted a long time. Keep them in the fridge. Yes there are orchids in the airp...ort to buy but it is not the same as getting the Hawaiian greeting. Definitely for 1st timers. Kids would love this! more
Very happy with service. It was my sisters very first trip to Hawaii so it was a nice surprise for her. She saw name in sign and d...idn't think it was for her more
The was an excellent experience right off the plane, the young lady that greeted us with our Lei was very friendly. Get a Lei ri...ght off the plane is highly recommended... more

Being greeted at the airport by a delightful Hawaiian with the traditional orchid lay she had made was a perfect start to a much a...nticipated trip. Our greeter was so friendly and informative. I would recommend this to anyone making a Hawaiian vacation for the first time. We wear our leis to dinner each night and still get comments more
The flowers were perfect! We loved them! We would recommend these Lei's! They smelled so good!
My clients and the Leis connected at the airport and everyone is starting the vacation with the Aloha feel....
Our Greeter was so friendly... ordered these welcome lei's as a surprise for my friend who I was traveling with.. She is al...lergic to flowers, I was able to do a traditional kukui nut lei with a shell upgrade, these were beautiful and fragrant free, perfect for my friend and we could still enjoy a welcome lei... Our greeter was so nice, took our picture, guided us down to baggage claim and helped us find our rental car shuttle. more
Despite our flight information changing several times, they managed to be right at the gate when we arrived! I ordered this as a s...pecial surprise for my mom on our trip to Hawaii and she was extra surprised! Thank you for making this happen! more
Our greeter was very friendly and helpful. She was waiting for us when we got there and helped us get to baggage claim. The leis ...were beautiful and very frangrant! Thank you! more
Awesome and helpful young man. Very attentive and helpful. He was waiting for us as our flight arrived at the gate.
Aloha! Service and product were as expected and promised. A very sweet young lady greeted us at our gate as we exited the walkwa...y. She held a sign with our names and came happily towards us as if she knew who we were before we said, she then helped us get to baggage claim. I surprised my son with this lei greeting. Leis were very fresh and beautiful. A great way to start your Hawaiian vacation! Highly recommended! Mahalo! more
Camille & Dominic
So pretty ! My family enjoyed wearing them for several Hawaiian Days
Breathtaking! Beautiful Lei and presentation...only suggestion would be to provide information and container to preserve Lei to ta...ke home! more
Very beautiful and delivered in a great way! We were delayed by six hours, and when I called they were very accommodating. I would... definitely use this service again...Mahalo more
I ordered leis for our family of 8 on a Friday for the following Tuesday. Our flight was over an hour late, but the wonderful smi...ling ladies greeted us as we got off the plane. Everyone was so thrilled especially me that they were there even though the plane was late. more
Thank you so much for making our first time arrival to Hawaii so awesome! The flowers were beautiful and you really impressed us w...ith the handwritten card and candy. Also the young lady helped us with where to go for luggage and the rental car area. She was so sweet!! Thank you again :) more
Very nice and helpful young man! He was at the airport gate waiting for us to get down, as he held a sign with our names. He ...was friendly, and very pleasant as well as very helpful. more
This is an excellent idea and I'd highly recommend the lei greeting! As promised, the representative was waiting just outsid...e our gate with our leis. The hospitality didn't end there as our rep walked with us to baggage claim, secured a porter for us and then found our hotel transfer van for us. She waited with us until we were on the van to our hotel. She would not accept a tip saying it was her pleasure to help. The leis come with a gift bag containing chocolates and care instructions for the leis. We kept ours in our hotel refrigerator and after 12 days we were able to take them home to show others....they still were beautiful and fragrant! more
Ashley, made this a most welcoming experience, took time to get to know us and gave a brief overview of the history of the Lei gre...eting. more
They made us feel right at home , once when we got there they were waiting for us as if they already knew us ..

It was wonderful to be greeted at Honolulu Airport with leis after a 9 1/2 hour overnight flight from Australia. The warm smiles ...of the young ladies who presented us with our leis made us feel truly welcome. We appreciated their patience as although our flight arrived on time there were significant delays passing through airport security / customs. The wives loved the fresh orchid leis which where quite beautiful. It was the perfect start to our holiday in Hawaii. more
Well needless to say this was a great experience, however id like to take the time to brag personally on our girl...she not only w...aited for our flight to come in which was over 45 min late coming in. ..but she was soooo sweet and just very helpful in getting us to our shuttle...just a great experience all around! more
Wonderful way to be greeted in the wonderful Hawaii!!!
Are greater was absolutely wonderful did an amazing job was very informative and had lots of information to give us directions we ...really appreciated her time and experience would recommend it to anyone more
He had been to Oahu three times before and never got a lei. You should've seen his eyes light up when he saw his name in big ...letters being held up by the nice person ! Success! Thank you ! more
Marilyn was extremely polite and welcoming at the beginning of the flight. She offered to take a nice picture of us and waited unt...il the baggage arrived. Which was a pretty long time. All in all the perfect surprise for my wife more
Great experience! Hawaiian Lei greeting was a huge surprise for my family. They were extremely excited. Even though I didn'...t get all the Leis I ordered, initially, our hostesses went above and beyond. She actually mailed our two kukui necklaces to our hotel. AMAZING!!!!! more
Without Problems; in Time; very good Organization; friendly staff
Very well done. The young lady was very attentive and gracious. She helped make the experience very pleasant for all of us.
My Neice was traveling to Oahu from LA. Her plane had engine damage and she had to wait for a new plane. She was overwhelmed &... extremely upset that her departure was delayed almost an entire day. I thought I'd cheer her by having her Lei'd at her arrival. It was short notice, I could not get anyone to do it. Than I called Veltra, I explained my situation. After some checking the very nice gal told me they could arrange it, my niece was arriving in just 3 hours. I am so greatful. Thank you! more
I wanted to get a Lei greeting for my wife on our arrival in Honolulu, and I contracted with Hawaii Activities for an Orchid/Ti le...af lei for my wife and a Ti leaf lei for myself. First our plane was late and the greeter was still there right on time at our arrival, and second the leis were very well done, with my wife's Orchid lei being really beautiful. I was happy with how it turned out, and would recommend these people to others who are coming to Hawaii. more
We were met by a very cheerful person and the Lei's were beautiful. She took us to the baggage area and continued to tell us ...about the island and provide suggestions on what to do. Awesome way to start our vacation. more
absolutely wonderful!! so nice and the couple we traveled with had never been to hawaii and they were thrilled with the special a...ttention and great smile of your gal she even took a photo for us and offered to walk to baggage area with us if we needed help more
It was a wonderful surprise for my daughter and husband! Our Greeter was so sweet!
Truly loved the experience, it was my daughters first trip to Hawaii and your representative made her welcome one to remember, she... took pictures for us walked us to baggage claim and gave us useful information to help make our trip memorable. She also waited with us for our transportation to arrive. She was truly amazing and should be recognized for it..Will definitely use company again. more
FANTASTIC!!!It was so nice when arriving and she was there greeting us.
This was for my oldest sister when she arrived to meet up with our other sister who is working in Hawaii for two weeks. I had go...tten this lei greeting when I visited and it made me fall in love with the islands. I wanted to share it with her too. The smile on her face in the picture I was sent was magical. The happiest smile I've seen on her in 20 years. Mahalo for granting her that happiness. more
We had the nicest man greet us at HNL, so helpful and friendly. It was the perfect way to start a nice Hawaiian vacation!

This was a big hit with my husband. He was visiting his son for the week and when he got off the plane there was a sign with his n...ame on it. I wanted to surprise him for his Birthday. He went up to the man and was surprised with a lei with nuts and shells and a flower lei. Such a nice surprise. The gentleman was very personable and talked with David about his stay. I highly recommend this company. more
We came with a couple who had not yet experienced Hawaii. To be welcomed with the beautiful leis and friendly and helpful people, ...gave us the start we were hoping for. Thank you so much, for the great products, but even more for the true reflection of the "Aloha" spirit! more
Everything was perfect, our was late for 2 hours but girl wait for us. Very helpful for finding transportation for hotel.

My Lei greeter was absolutely wonderful. Very kind and knowledgeable. My shuttle was running late & she stayed with me until i...t arrived. This was my 17th time to Hawaii and in previous years I used a previous Lei Greeting Company & an elderly man was my Lei greeter. He was so rude I had to change companies. I'm very pleased with this company and I highly recommend them. I recommend them to all my friends who visit Oahu. more
Beautiful lei and a great way to be welcomed to Hawaii. The lady was lovely and gave us some information and took our picture. ... Recommended and will use services again. more

Loved loved our lei's fresh and beautiful !! The lady helped get our luggage and our shuttle. She was wonderful!!
We were greeted right outside of our gate once we arrived in Honolulu. Our flight was even delayed over an hour and the amazing re...presentative was still there! She greeted both of us with a friendly "aloha" and adorned our leis in the traditional style. She escorted us to our bag claim and even took a photo for us with our beautiful leis. She was very informative about places to see and things to do also. It was our first time to come to Hawaii and I ghwould definitely recommend this timeless custom to anyone who travels here! more
We had your stunning leis delivered as a surprise to our son and Daughter-in-law at Honolulu Airport. Beautiful! Great surprise! T...hank you so much. We will certainly use your company again!! more
Make sure you let whomever is receiving the Lei know in advance.
Very beautiful! The perfect touch for my granddaughters first trip to the islands. The Lady that met us at the airport was wonder...ful in welcoming us. more
Thanks for everything! It made our hawaiian trip memorable!
My sister text messaged me that she and her new husband had received beautiful leis when they arrived in Honolulu. She said other ...people in the airport received cheesy leis but theirs were very beautiful. Thanks I am so glad I ordered these as a gift from Hawaii Activities more
I surprised my wife and kids with the lei greeting. A pretty young lady was right there at the gate as we departed the plane. My k...ids saw their names first and did a double-take as they were not expecting the greeting. The leis were beautiful and it was a small but important start to our first trip to Hawaii. more
Thanks for the wonderful greeting. It was great to see our sign when we first entered the airport. The flower choices and color we...re excellent! more
The leis were wonderful, and a great welcome to Hawaii. We enjoyed them to the fullest. Thanks!
This was very nice gesture, proved a pleasant surprise for my better half.
Nice flowers - we both loved it. but it's not that fresh, you can tell that it's gonna withered soon. Not really as f...resh. more
What a delightful greeting. The young lady who greated us was very helpful getting to the baggage claim area which was quite a di...stance from our gate. I'm glad I did this the flowers were beautiful. more
Well we were expecting good lei's but when we arrived, the Lei's were even better than we thought. The only pitfall for... this company is their lack of trying to get the right flight. We told them the right fight number three times and all three times they couldn't find it. The did get there at the end so it was good. The price is a little high for the Lei's but other than that, it was a good experience getting them as we arrived in Hawai'i more
Brandon and Lisa
staff very friendly & helpful, great surprise for anyone.
This was nice, but I guess I was a bit disappointed. The enthusiasm was lacking.
A sweet lady met us near our arrival gate, presented the leis, and offered to take a family picture. Thanks!
was a nice greeting
The greeter was terrific, friendly and helpful!
The lei greeting was very nice and done quite properly. I would recommend this experience to anyone coming to Hawaii
The lei greeting was a nice suprise for my friend. The lei was fresh orchids and it was beautiful.The lady who gave us the lei was... not dressed Hawai'ian, and she put the lei around the neck. Latter we were stopped on the street and a local resident moved the lei's so they rested on our shoulder(this is the way it should be and the way it looks nice). I would like to have the presenter of the lei dressed at least in colorful Hawai'ian cloths and the lei put on us the right way. The lady was non-the-less very helpful and did guide us to the front of the airport where the limo was to pick us up. Thank you "Hawaii Activities". more
I totally recommend this lei greeting for first-timers to Hawaii if you are not being met by anyone. Your first visit and the spir...it of Aloha begins with the lei greeting. Hawaii begins and continues with Aloha and love, even after your trip is over. more
Our greeter was very friendly and seemed to be hawaiian, which was good. This was exactly what we paid for and expected.
Very good experience. The employee greeting us went out of her way to make the experience a great one.
My husband was very much surprised to be met at the airport by a greeter with fresh lei's for us...the leis lasted very well......the greeter was very helpful in getting us to baggage claim and to the airport shuttle we had selected. Mahalo. more
Thank you to the lovely young lady who held up the sign with our name on it, as we got off of our airplane! She had a nice big sm...ile, and she greeted us with warm hospitality and friendliness. She offered to take our picture, and she kindly asked if she could answer any questions for us. She was a sweet first impression for our visit. Thank you! more
My friend was so surprised!! It was very cute... :)
Our family of 5 departed the plane coming from Las Vegas to Oahu. It was an exceptionally long flight due to delays. We were all... tired and crabby so it was exciting to see our kids faces light up when they realized not everyone was getting a lei greeting but that our family was! A Hawaiian looking woman was standing with a sign with our name on it! She greeted each of us with a warm smile and "Aloha" and then walked with us to the baggage area chatting the whole time. Our whole family enjoyed it and every first time visitor should do it. I am glad that our greeter was from Hawaiian decent. Another family had a greeting and their greeter was definitely from the mainland. I would NOT have been happy if that had been us! more
Nice way to start your Hawaiian vacation
It was nice to be greeted by a smiling face and fresh lei's after a 12 hour flight. Our greeter was very nice and took us to ...the baggage claim. However, we had another group that did not receive their greeting (not sure what company they booked it through) and they were disappointed. more
Was very nice. The girl was there waiting for us & guided us to the luggage carousel. Flowers smelled wonderful.
My Girl freind was totally surprised, and really felt SPECIAL because the other people getting off the plane got nothing, a really... nice way to start a loving vacation. more
My family member was surprised by the lei greeting, however, I was expecting a little more excitement from our greeter. Definitely... a nice treat for a first time visitor or a loved one. more
Our plane, from LA, was 4 hours late at Honolulu international airport, but the girl was there, waiting for us with our leis. It w...as great ! more
Jean-Michel P., Belgium
It was just what the doctor ordered after 12 hours of travel! A must do!!!!!!!!
I ordered this as a surprise for my daughter. Didn't catch the greeter's name as we were exhausted, but her friendly fac...e was waiting right by the exit gate with a sign that had my daughter's name clearly marked. Our flight had been delayed, and while she was friendly, she appreciated that we weren't feeling our best. I ordered the standard lei for my daughter hoping it wouldn't set off her allergies. Smelled great, looked beautiful and no reaction. She took us to baggage claim and made sure we had transportation to the hotel. I would definitely do this again for other friends or family coming to visit. more
My husband and I were first time visitors to Hawaii and wanted the full experience, including the lei greeting. We had already in...dulged by flying first class so we were nice and relaxed and so excited to be in Hawaii! The greeter was literally right at the gate so we saw her right away. Unfortunately it was just some chick in a flowered "Hawaii" shirt with our names on a piece of paper and a plastic grocery bag who placed our leis, said welcome to Hawaii and pointed us in the wrong direction to the baggage claim. I had planned on giving her a tip of a couple bucks but she bailed so quickly I didn't even get a chance. At least she stuck around long enough to take a pic of my husband & I with our leis! Luckily my husband and I were in such a great mood and happy to be there we just laughed it off and went on our way. The leis were beautiful and lasted several days, unfortunately we had no way to keep them cool and make them last longer, but we have wonderful pictures as keepsakes more
This was nice after such a long flight. Seeing our names when we got of the plane and being escorted to the bagage claim was nice..., the leis were so beautiful and everyone commented on them asking us where we got them. They were WAY WAY nicer then the ones they sold at booths in the airport. I recommend this if you are celebrating something special or if it is your first time in Hawaii. Loved it :) They lasted days!!!! more
Our trip to Oahu began beautifully when Amanda met us at the airport with the lovely Hawaiian leis and sweet Aloha. These are gor...geous real flowers and they lasted the entire week we were there. Amanda was very cheerful and kind, took us to get our baggage and made sure we knew how to get a taxi to our hotel. She chatted about some local area attractions and was a welcoming start to our vacation. Landing in a strange place for the first time, it was nice to see someone there waiting for us and welcoming us to their area. Makes the Hawaiian vacation authentic and what we all think of when we think of Hawaii. Thanks, Amanda!! more
The people were waiting with signs as soon as we entered the terminal. The gave the kids their candy leis and they really enjoyed ...the experience of arriving in Honolulu. more
I was pleased with the Lei Greeting. The representative was there when our flight arrived, dressed in a Hawaiian dress, with both... of the lei that we ordered. She explained a little about the lei, and their significance, and the difference between the two. I would recommend this service, especially as a surprise for a family member, or for a first time visitor to the Islands. more
The Lei Gretting was nice especially for first timers like us.
Our greeter was waiting for us when we walked off the plane. She was patient as we dug for our camera to take her picture (she was... holding our beautiful leis and a sign with our name on it and my husband wanted a photo). She greeted us with a welcome smile and "Aloha" and took us to baggage claim and waited with us until our shuttle arrived. She offered suggestions on what to do and where to go. The leis were gorgeous, however I would recommend getting the less expensive leis as they are also pretty and not so heavy to wear! more
The greeter was awesome. She was warm and friendly and after such a long flight it was so nice to be welcomed by her. The leis wer...e beautiful and I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a special welcome to purchace this greeting. more
Great way to start our Vacation, a surprise Lei at the airport from a friendly local.....aloha and Mohalo
While our flight was delayed, we were still presented with the most beautiful Hawaiian Leis as soon as we arrived! Recommended to... everyone to make them feel "part of the islands" as soon as you step off the plane! more
I booked this for my parents 40th anniversary. My mom had the hollywood version of Hawaii in her head (the hula dancer and ukulel...e greeting as you walk off the plane) which we all know doesn't happen, so I suprised them with the lei greeting. They were met at the gate with the leis and had grins from ear to ear. I got them the double strand of flowers and everywhere they went (car rental, airport staff, etc) stopped them to tell them it was the best lei they had seen - they see them all day long. This made my parents smile even more. I would highly recommend this to people who are first timers to the island, it really sets a mood for the start of your vacation. more
Greeter was waiting for us at the gate, friendly and with a smile! She also offered to take our pictures with the leis (using our... own camera). We purchased the silk leis to keep for souvenirs. They were a better quality than I expected, but expensive for what they were. I guess we were paying for the greeting service too. Overall, a great experience for our first time to Hawaii. I would recommend this company to anyone. more
A wonderful experience, but my only complaint was that I didn't receive the color I ordered for the lei. Still a treasured s...ouvenir of the visit, but would have liked to get the color I ordered. more
Arrived at the gate and a representative was there holding a sign up with my Nephew's name. He was very surprised! The repres...entative was very friendly and helpful. Made sure we didn't require any assistance getting to bag claim. Overall a nice welcoming to Hawaii, especially since it was my Nephew's first visit! more
Our lei representative was really fantastic and had great knowledge of the airport and Hawaii. Thanks for being on time my famil...y; especially the ladies loved the lei they received. Hawaii Bound Again more
Hawaii Bound Again
We were greeted by a friendly lady that was identified by the sign she was holding with our names and she had a card with congratu...lations on our 50th anniversary. She took the time to take pictures of us with our leis and then was very hepful in directing us to the areafor taxi pickup. The leis were beautiful, fresh, made complely from flowers with no bead fillers, and lasted the week. I would highly recommend them. more
As soon as I came off the plane there was the lady with my name and lei in hand! It was a beautiful lei, presenter was a nice lad...y and walked with me to baggage claim as well. She was very friendly, knowledgeable and a good resource. This was great experience after a long day to be presented with a beautiful and fresh lei! I definitely recommend this offer to anyone going to Hawaii. more
The lady was wearing a red shirt but the website says she will be wearing white and purple. She helped us get to the baggage claim... area and was very nice. more
My clients were very happy with their Lei greeting upon their first trip to Hawaii. A true sense of Ohana upon arrival. They were... also helpful in terms of getting the folks to the rental car location. more
My hubby was surprised by the touch. But might have been a lil too much $$ for the flowers
The lei's were truly beautiful and everyone commented that they had never seen one such as we had! Unfortunately, not everyon...e knows you have to pay ahead to get one. I met a woman arriving in Hawaii for the first time and thought she would get one and was disappointed. I told her you had to order one & pay for it ahead of arrival. I wish everyone knew this. Can't go by movies. Glad someone told me! more

The young lady that delivered the leis met us as we exited the plane and arrived in the terminal. She was very friendly and offer...ed to take our picture. The leis themselves were large, full leis that were very pretty. (A little heavy, due to the size.) Definitely worth it for my wife, who has put up with me for 20 years of marriage! more
Not only was I able to have my parents greeted at the gate, they were accompanied to luggage pick up and to their transportation. ... They said it was lovely! Thank you! more
Was a very nice and helpful greeting.. The Lei and Greeter was very Nice.
Nice touch to trip/vacation. Gal was very sweet, pleasant, happy. Took our picture, walked us to baggage claim, chatted, smiled,... answered our questions... more
Hi, my friend was surprised, but it would be nice it your company would post picture of the greetings on your website.
Our greater was very good. There was a little confusion she held up two signs one for my grandson named young and one for us name ...Weiss, however, when we came off the plane she thought that she was still waiting for another person and then realized that all three were us. She even took the time to walk us to the escalator and show us where to go for baggage. more
It was planned as a surprise for my mother and my it was a succsess!!!! The person, Alfred, who greeted us was really heartwarming... and helpful. I am so grateful for having decided to do this and for having met Alfred. Many thanks and hugs and kisses to Alfred more
It was fine. I did this for my sister and her boyfriend when they came with us because it was their first time in Hawaii. I woul...d have preferred for the greeter to be a Hawaian but she was not. more
We were a group of 6 (3 families) and all had the lei greeting. It was as soon as we stepped off the plane. The greeter was awes...ome. She was so polite and very helpful with everything. The leis were beautiful but pricey. If this is your first visit to hawaii, I would recommend it. more
I have to say first that the honeymoon leis were stunning. The entire week I've been in Hawaii, I haven't seen any as ni...ce as the ones I bought here. However, keep in mind that, depending on the time of your flight, you might not actually be greeted at the airport. And that information isn't given out until AFTER you purchase it. My plane arrived at 6:55 am, so they dropped it off at my hotel instead. I still got the flowers, but it just kinda ruined the greeting experience I was hoping for. more
We're not sure what is the typical greeting but going to Hawaii for the first time for us meant a definite lei greeting. It w...as simple. There was a guy waiting with a sign. No pictures or fancy process, but we did ask him to take a photo after the fact. Glad we did it. more
I'm always nervous booking something online and it was wonderful when we got off the plane to have our greeter right there in... plain site. This was a surprise for our guests traveling with us and was a very nice welcome to Hawaii. The greeter was absolutely lovely but we couldn't understand her because she seemed to speak in a whisper. Maybe our hearing was off from the engine noise of 11 hours flying to get there. I was expecting an orchid lei and instead got the big brown nut lei that looks like chocolate. I guess that's better because it will last forever as a souvenir even though the flowers are much prettier. I would use them again but just ask that the greeter try to speak a little louder. more
The Lei greeting is supposed to be one of the oldest and most cherished Polynesian traditions. Ours was rushed and lacked authent...icity or warmth. Unfortunately, I think I could have found a better way to spend > $100 (for 4 people). more
I read the reviews & thought this would be a great surprise for my college kids & their friends being the 1st vacation wit...hout Mom & Dad. I called to confirm the info w/Hawaii Activities to make sure everything is correct. My kids called me and said Thanks! but...my son Ryan was called Ron and he corrected her and she still called him Ron. The leis I ordered was not the right colors and the greeter did not offer to give them direction/picture or anykind of assistance until I told my son to put her on the phone. The greeter handed them the leis & walked away. I called customer service to complain and they were wonderful & refunded one of the leis but... that did not make me happy. I just wish they had a wonderful greeting when they entered Hawaii because they all had so many issues before their vacation. Hopefully, when you book this activity you get one of their best because Hawaii Activities have some of the best tour guides and staff you ever want to meet on a vacation. This one was more
I paid 80 dollars for some one to hand me a lei and piece of paper and just walk off. Not worth the money at all
We were scheduled to land at 21:50 but we were delayed so I called the office and they informed me it wasn't a problem and th...ey would monitor the arrival time. When we arrived at the airport there was no one there to greet us, we waited until the very end when the last passenger left the arrivals area and then we had to leave also. At this time I had to come clean on the whole surprise which was very dissappointing. I called the office from the airport but no answer. Upon arriving at the hotel and logging onto wifi I had received an email infoming that due to the late arrival time a greeting wasn't posssible. If I had known this I would have cancelled when I called informing them of my late arrival time. I called the office and arranged for a greeting at the hotel but after arriving back a few hours later the flowers were in the room on the table in a box. They were the most beautiful flowers you could ask for, very fresh and perfect but we paid for a lei greeting and this isn't what we got. So just be aware that arriving after 22:30 you could be severely disappointed. more
As half of our group have traveled to Hawaii before and received an Aloha welcoming, not from this company, we were disappointed t...hat the other half who were being surprised with the welcoming 1. The names on the sign was wrong. 2. The leis ordered was wrong. 3. The representative giving the welcoming was dressed in jeans and a shirt with her purse. These services you provide should be authentic. Clearly just do it to make money and appease the traveler. This was a special moment that did not turn out nice. It was actually even more awkward as the sign stated a couple was married when they have complete opposite partners and names. more
