Description

from Oahu Grand Circle Island Tour
Whether you’re a first-time visitor or a seasoned vacationer, this is the perfect way to experience Oahu’s most scenic sights. From Diamond Head Crater along the southern coast to the famous surfing beaches of the North Shore, you’ll take in a landscape that includes lush mountains and sparkling, turquoise waters. You’ll also learn about the unique culture and history of Oahu through tour narration and along the way you’ll stop at some fascinating locales.

At an altitude of 1,186 feet, the Nuuanu Pali Lookout offers unparalleled views of Oahu’s northeastern coast. On a clear day, you might see Diamond Head Crater and Chinaman’s Hat off in the distance. You’ll also have the opportunity to view these natural landmarks from a closer vantage point along with the Halona “Blow Hole” and other breathtaking scenery along your journey.

Experience Kualoa Ranch, one of the most sacred places on the island of Oahu, for a tram tour that journeys from the foothills of the Ranch to the base of the majestic Kualoa Mountains. This tour features an informative video, friendly guides, and terrific photo opportunities.

You’ll see a rural side of Oahu when visiting pineapple fields on the north shore and the Waikane Tropical farm on Oahu’s scenic windward side. You’ll be transported to another time and place at the Byodo-In Temple, a replica of a 10th-century temple in Uji, Japan. In contrast, Laie Hawaii Temple, on Oahu’s northeast coast, offers a 20th-century twist on the ancient temples of South America.

We are first times to Oahu and this tour provided an excellent overview of the Island and some of its history. Our driver/guide was very knowledgable and entertaining - and an excellent driver too. We had a coach style bus that was very comfortable. Great experience - we thoroughly enjoyed it!

This was a horrible excursion. Our bus broke down twice. You spend the whole day driving and only spend minutes at each Destination. Avoid this

I booked this tour with Erik and he was very knowledgeable and proud of his culture. Made the whole experience worthwhile. I wanted to know so much more and he was always excited to tell me.
