Brought to you by the same mastermind behind the New York Times featured “Counter Cultural Tour of New York City” — the Counter Cultural Tour of Honolulu is the long awaited answer to the overly sanitized, overly commercialized, often campy bus tours currently offered in Honolulu today.
Want to learn the shocking truth about how Hawai’i became part of the United States, and the illegal usurpation of the Hawaiian Kingdom in 1893? Wish to learn the circumstances behind the Chinatown Fire of 1900? Want to learn about how an elephant escaped the circus and romped around downtown Honolulu in August 1994? Want to learn about how Honolulu adopted its own version of the Occupy Wall Street movement in 2011? This is the tour for you!
Meet up is at the Mission Houses opposite of Honolulu Hale (Honolulu City Hall) then will proceed through downtown Honolulu, and will conclude at the Hawaii State Capital. Bring some good shoes, a camera, and a good ear to listen because this tour will discuss what other tours are afraid to touch upon or mention! Book the Counter Cultural Tour of Honolulu TODAY!

— FOR INQUIRIES AND INTERVIEWS PERTAINING TO OCCUPY WALL STREET PLEASE EMAIL ME AT PELLA 7387 AT GMAIL DOT COM — HOW YOU DOIN? My name is Michael Pellagatti. I am a history buff, freelance journalist and sightseeing guide. Currently I am based in Honolulu, however by appointment I will also conduct tours in NYC. My tours have been featured twice in the New York Times, and I have conducted excursions for the most prestigious academic institutions in the civilized world such as Yale, Columbia, and the University of London. When you are getting a tour from me, you are getting a tour from a living walking-talking encyclopedia! I am deeply involved with social justice causes in both New York and Hawai’i; being a fixture within independent media circles covering protests, breaking developments, and interviewing or featuring notable personalities such as Gloria Allred, and the late Pete Seeger. Everyone is unique in their own way, here’s what makes me unique. Professionally, I have one of the highest tour guide licensing test scores in New York City history (since the test was first administered in 2003) scoring 137 out of 150. I am the first, AND ONLY, tour guide in the history of the business to cover both New York and Honolulu. I have a legitimate claim to New York City's history, being among the small group of activists who camped out at Zuccotti Park on September 17th 2011, creating the Occupy Movement. By default that makes me a (not-so-famous) historical person not only as a tour guide, but also as an activist too!
