Description

Itinerary

Oahu is an island of amazing and varied landscapes. You'll travel through fields with unique red dirt as you approach the Dole Pineapple Plantation in Oahu's center. Here, stop for about 25 minutes and enjoy fresh pineapple, probably the freshest and sweetest you've ever eaten, grown right here in the pineapple fields. Learn about how pineapples grow and Oahu's pineapple-growing history.

Then you're off to the surfing town, Haleiwa, on Oahu's North Shore. Experience firsthand the world-famous big wave surfing beaches: Waimea Bay, Sunset Beach and the Banzai Pipeline.

On Oahu's windward side, you'll travel past popular Hollywood film locations of hits like Jurassic Park, Lost, and Pearl Harbor. Your circle island tour is topped off with a stop at the Pali Lookout. Here, you'll enjoy an unforgettable bird's-eye-view of Oahu's windward coast. From this mountaintop vantage point, you will be able to see many attractions you just drove by, including Chinaman's Hat Island, Gilligan's Island and the cities of Kaneohe and Kailua.

Make a stop at the longest, yet least crowded beach on Oahu, then see the panoramic views from Makapu'u. See the fascinating display at the Halona blowhole and the dangerous shore break at Sandy Beach. Then travel to Oahu's most famous reef sanctuary, Hanauma bay. This notorious landmark was the filming location for Elvis's blue Hawaii and an excellent photo opportunity for you. Finish the tour with a stop at Diamond Head and the last location that Amelia Earhart was seen before flying off into the Pacific.

Rave Reviews:

"The leeward side of the island was the most beautiful place that I have ever seen. The lunch that we had at the golf club was delicious. Our guide Pappy was the best tour guide that I've ever met. He was extremely thorough, with a great sense of humor. Thank your for this great tour." -- Joan from NY, USA

"The places that we went were great. Hana told us so much history at the places that we stopped. He was able to answer all of our questions, he was very knowledgeable. We were able to see so much of the island in only one day! Hana created such a friendly atmosphere that eight of us stayed together for another six hours when we were dropped off." -- Suzie from AR, USA

"Kanoe, our guide, had a great sense of humor and so much knowledge of the area that we visited. It was a great day, one we will always remember. We were more then happy with our day out." -- Ken from the UK

    I think it would be a good tour for someone trying to get their feel around Honolulu and for older people, since it minimized the walking.
