Evergreen: Fly Non-Stop To 10 West Coast Cities

Maui, nicknamed “The Magic Isle,” is certainly a gorgeous gem of the Hawaiian Islands. It seems most befitting that the flower of Maui is the Lokelani, meaning “heavenly rose.” Maui is the second largest of the Hawaiian Islands, located approximately 21 degrees north of the equator in the most isolated land in the world. The nearest land mass to Hawaii is San Francisco, approximately 2,400 miles away. Of the total of more than 100 islands in Hawaii, only eight are considered major islands – Ni’ihau, Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Maui, Lanai, Kaho’olawe, and the Big Island of Hawaii – and only seven of those islands are inhabited. Anytime of year is a good time to visit Maui. The average temperature is between 75˚-85˚ F throughout the year. Maui reaches from sea level to 10,023 feet, to the summit of a dormant volcano, Haleakalä. Sugar, pineapple, cattle, and agriculture are a few of Maui’s major industries, with tourism at the top of the list. Maui’s world-famous beauty attracts tons of recreation activities, including golfing, horseback riding, hiking, whale-watching, nautical adventures, and helicopter tours!

Legend has it that the island of Maui was named after the Native Hawaiian demigod Maui, who pulled up the Hawaiian islands from deep out of the ocean with a magic fishhook linked to the heavens. After the islands were pulled out, the chord broke from the heavens, and the magic fishhook sank down into the ocean, lost forever. There is no better way to explore the mysteries of the deep, see the underwater coral beauty of Maui, and meet a colorful array of marine life located only in Hawaii than to take an underwater voyage. Hawaii’s coral reefs, the “rainforests of the sea,” are incredibly diverse ecological communities. With nothing more than a mask an a snorkel, you’ll be in a whole new world.

I’d like to invite you on the Molokini Snorkel & Turtle Town Morning Adventure from Maui, a perfect opportunity to discover the rich foundations of Maui’s birth and meet its tropical underwater locals. Climb aboard the Pride of Maui, a state-of-the-art 65 foot catamaran famous for her stability and comfort. Relax as you cruise in style to two beautiful diving destinations. The tour includes an Island-style continental breakfast, two snorkeling stops, a delicious lunch, snorkeling gear, and instructions. You’ll visit Molokini, a crescent shaped caldera that is a protected marine sanctuary. The waters are calm and clear, which is perfect for scuba diving, snuba diving, and snorkeling. You will also visit Turtle Town, known for its beautiful lava formations and Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles.

If you’d like to dive even deeper, then take a once-in-a-lifetime undersea adventure on our Atlantis Submarine Tour! It is the world’s first and most technologically advanced passenger submarine. Journey into a spectacular blue world more than 130 feet below the surface in spacious air-conditioned comfort. You will see the majestic natural coral reefs and Hawaiian marine life. From December through May, you can enjoy whale watching during the ship-to-shore journey. Reservations are HIGHLY recommended for this popular tour!

The Island of Maui is also called the “Valley Isle” for the large isthmus between its northwestern and southeastern volcanoes and the numerous large valleys carved into the mountains. Explore deep, meandering valleys set in the rainforest of the ancient West Maui Mountains. Knife-edged ridges with mist-shrouded peaks separate the spectacular valleys. Waterfalls cascade down from towering cliffs into the streams running along the rainforest floor. Take off on the Maui Spectacular Helicopter Tour to soar with a bird’s eye view to see the rainforests and waterfalls of the West Maui Mountains, Hana, and the Haleakala Crater. You’ll also enjoy a 20-minute landing and refreshments at Ulupalakua Ranch. Every West Maui Mountains tour is unique!

Discover the best of both worlds on our West Maui Island Deluxe Helicopter Tour & Submarine Adventure. Experience Maui under the sea as well as above it! Take in views from above, inaccessible by land and discover lush green rainforests, cascading waterfalls and a dormant volcano. Then, marvel at Hawaii’s unique underwater paradise aboard a high-tech 48-passenger submarine. View fascinating coral reefs and their inhabitants as you explore the ocean more than 100 feet below. Every dive is a new adventure!

From heavenly summit views to pristine beaches and thriving nautical life, there are plenty of reasons why Maui has been voted “Best Island” by travelers for years.

Experience the Magic at Disneyland Paris

Wednesday, September 10th, 2008

Since Paris is such a huge tourist destination, many attractions have been created to cater to visitors’ wants and needs.  Such a place is called Disneyland.  Disneyland Paris welcomes 13 million visitors each year which is 7.5 million more people than the Eiffel Tower receives.  It is a place of magic, wonder, curiosity and pure fun, so why wouldn’t you want to visit?

The Disneyland Paris 1-Day Hopper from Paris Tours offers you either a one park or two park pass with the option of transportation.  This makes it very convenient and easy for you to get to and from the park from your hotel in Paris.  With the one park pass, you will only be able to explore Disneyland but with the two park pass, you will also visit Walt Disney Studios Park. 

Disneyland Paris has five different lands within it.  One of these is Frontierland which shows you all the grandeur and decadence of the Wild, Wild West.  Here you will see cowboys and Indians with rides that will remind you of the conquests and thrills of the old west.  You can ride down a runaway mine train on Big Thunder Mountain or see how your shooting eye is in the Rustler Roundup Shootin’ Gallery. 

Adventureland is full of action and suspense as you can explore through caves, tunnels, waterfalls and bridges in Adventure Isle.  You can also search through Aladdin’s Enchanted Passage, climb to the top of The Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse, or take a voyage with the Pirates of the Caribbean.  This land will get your heart racing and blood pumping!

In Fantasyland, all of the ‘Once Upon a Time’ tales will come to life!  You have the chance of flying in Dumbo’s ride, visit the Seven Dwarves cottage, and spin in the Mad Hatters’ Tea Cups.

If you are into science, the future, or inventions then Discoveryland is right for you.  Here you can view a 360º film about Jules Vern and the Timekeeper.  You may also drive futuristic cars, walk through Captain Nemo’s submarine, and ride one of the greatest Disney rides of all time, Space Mountain. 

The last land is Main Street U.S.A. which is based off small town America complete with horse-drawn carriages, vintage police cars and fire engines, and the Disneyland Railroad. 

Right next door is Walt Disney Studios Park where you will witness the magical world of cinema and television.  The park features four film lots where you can ride The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, the Indiana Jones adventure, experience Armageddon and view many, many shows. 

These parks are an action-packed celebration of our fascination of cinema, television and overall entertainment.  Purchase your tickets today at www.paris-tours.net.
