Know More about this tour

When you arrive in Kona at the Kona International Airport (KOA), look for your lei greeting representative at the first non-secured area and receive your wonderful island greeting. Treat yourself and loved ones to a traditional lei welcome, featuring beautiful, fresh local orchids. This is the perfect way to start your family vacation, honeymoon or special occasion.

The history of the lei dates back to the ancient Hawaiians, who wore braided leaves, native flowers, shells, feathers, stones and bones to beautify themselves. They often offered these garlands to each other and to their gods as a symbol of love and friendship. The lei was treasured and worn with pride by people of every age.

Leis are still carefully made by hand by Hawaiians, weaving fragrant, colorful flowers and leaves together to create a work of art. A symbol of Hawaii, leis are worn on all special occasions and given to family and friends as gifts of love.

    This was a great experience for my family! Our host greeted us with a sign - I asked my college-aged daughter “isn’t that your name?” She was floored! Wife enjoyed the experience too. Son was a bit embarrassed at first but quickly got over it. Host was very help in helping us find our way around airport afterwards! And I got to tell them that we could all say we got lei’d in Hawaii. 😉🙄😂

    It was a great surprise for my family. They loved the traditional greeting. We took the lei’s back and kept them in the fridge to keep them fresh.

    It was important to our family members to have the Hawaiian tradition of a Lei greeting when first visiting the island. The host was incredibly nice and wanted to make sure he was there when we landed. The leis were beautiful.

    They were so sweet and the leis are wonderful! Our flight had to be diverted and we arrived late. They were super communicative via email and waited for us. They were so helpful and kind and the leis are fantastic.
