Is the Tourist Guide Career Right For You?

Hi there!
I have an excellent way for all Tourist guides to promote themselves: a special site called www.canyouguideme.com. It is the first website designed to connect tourists with local guides and instructors. While the site is in its promotional stage, registration is free. As a member, you can reach a worldwide audience!

Our site provides prospective travelers access to information on a wide range of the best attractions in the United States, the Caribbean, and Great Britain. We are expanding our scope, toward becoming a global resource for tourists, tourist guides and sports instructors.

As a registered guide, you get to build a personal page, to organize all the information and photos for the places you are guiding. This page includes a personal mailbox for immediate client feedback.

Membership will promote your name in three ways:

1) Your page will appear in search engine results, without the cost of a personal website.
2) Your information will be available to tourists through an easy and elegant interface.
3) You can build pages for all of the attractions you are guiding, with detailed descriptions.

We look forward to bringing the best adventures to one place!
It is so easy to begin:

Paintball Events/Tournments; Fields...

Hello, everybody!

I've a question for you - is there a paintball field in any islands of Hawaii? What about the paintball events/tournments? I tried to google them up for an information, and I can't seem to find any good information.

My boyfriend is on the pro team and loves to play paintball. He would love to play paintball in Hawaii when we get a chance to take a Hawaii trip.

Happy New Year! :)

So how's the economy effecting Hawaii? Jobs? Gas/airline prices? Real estate? I've read a few things but nothing much from a personal insider perspective.

With an 18mo toddler to Maui for 3 months

Hi there,
I'm coming to Maui mid of January with my son (my husband is going to join mid of Feb) and have several questions. Would appreciate any help or advice!
1. What is the best place to rent and apt in Maui? To feel comfortable with a child?
2. How can I rent/buy a car for 3 months? Can you advice any resource where to look for used cars?
3. What is the best way to find a babysitter, with whom I could occasionally leave my child? A person with her own kids would be the best option.

Thanks for your attention!

considering I know nothing

This community seems a little inactive but I thought I'd throw these questions out. To anyone who can help, it's much appreciated.

I'm moving to Hawaii in a year, to Oahu to be exact, and I had a few stock questions:

1)How is transportation without a car? Would it be easy to get around?

2)If you order things online, are there any major places that don't ship to Hawaii?

3)How easy would it be to get things like dairy replacements? (almond milk, etc.) nut powders-I guess I'm asking if there are alternative health food stores around?

4)What are typical meals?

5)Even though there are many different cultures, are the people divided and stay within their own?(IE would you see Japanese and maybe Filipinos hanging out together as a normal thing?)

6)Is Hawaii affected a lot by current trends/music/styles/movies from the mainland states?

7)How easy is it to travel back and forth from the mainland states?

Thank you so much! <3

boat trips from Honolulu on a sail-type-boat?

Hi everybody.. My sister will be visiting in September, and she wants to take a short cruise on a boat that "actually has sails"... So not a power yacht or anything. Probably the smaller the better. Does anybody know of any little cruises like this that we could do? We would like a less than 2 hours trip, leaving from Honolulu, and (of course!) cheap (IE under $50, which i understand is probably not possible) We're flexible on length of trip, location (we can drive anywhere), and price (a little), so ANY ideas or suggestions of where to look would be great.

Thanks so much!!! :)
