Visit the North Shore, the Dole Plantation, Byodo-In Temple, Diamond Head, the Halona Blowhole, Hanauma Bay, Nu'uanu Pali and more as you travel with a knowledgeable local guide. Learn about the history of Hawaii and its amazing natural wonders for a memorable experience of beautiful Oahu.
  • Make the most of your time in Oahu—see many major attractions in a day

  • Stops include Dole Plantation and Waimea Bay
  • Numerous scenic vistas provide ample photo ops
  • All-inclusive transportation with hotel pickup and drop-off
What to Expect
Begin your day with pickup from your Waikiki hotel. In a deluxe air-conditioned coach, head to your first attraction of Halona Blowhole, stopping long enough to snap a photo from two panoramic vista points along the way. Continue through the foothills of the Ko'olau Mountains to Byodo-In Temple, passing yet another vista point en route. Look around this ornate replica of a Japanese Buddhist temple, including a 9-foot-tall (3-meter-tall) statue of Buddha. Take in views of Mokoli’i Island, Kahana Bay, and the beaches of Oahu North Shore on your way to Sunset Beach and Waimea Bay, a world-famous surf spot. Then, head inland to the Dole Plantation. Take a quick stop to view tropical gardens, browse the gift shop, and sample pineapple products (own expense). This tour concludes with hotel drop-off.

The first half of the tour was excellent, great scenery and experiences but the visits to Kualoa Ranch and Dole Plantation were disappointing - much too commercial. The tour was well worth the outlay but could be improved. Our tour guide was exceptional combining her family

This is a great way to spend a day seeing Oahu from the comfort of a coach. Whilst it's a full day tour, we were able to stop at the many points of interest to grab photos and stretch the legs. The buffet lunch at Kualoa Ranch was fun; not necessarily a culinary masterpiece
