Kamaka Ukulele tours are available Tuesday through Friday at 10am. The tours are said to run about 30 – 45 minutes, but during our visit it lasted at least an hour. Our tour was given by Sam Jr., the son of the founder. Kamaka and Sons was established in 1916. The hand made Ukulele’s are some of the finest in the world and made from Koa, a wood found in Hawaii with rosewood and ebony. Each Ukulele takes about five months and they say no two are ever the same.
The tour is as much a history of Hawaii, the Kamaka family and the Ukulele and includes a visit to the workshop where the work is done. It’s a truly fascinating tour and well worth a place on you Oahu travel itinerary.
