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.

"Very Informative"

We had been to several of these stops on a previous trip to Oahu and on our current trip. Wanted to take the tour to visit the places we missed. Cassidy was our tour guide and Tony our driver - both were excellent! Learned a lot more about the places we had already been to and enjoyed learning about the places we hadn't been to. Stopped for lunch at a shrimp truck and it was the best lunch we had on our trip. The highlight of the tour was seeing the sea turtles on shore. Definitely worth the money to take this tour (get a groupon) but you should try to take it your first few days in Oahu in case you want to go back somewhere you toured.

"Lunch buffet"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed February 27, 2020
The tour component was very good with a knowledgeable tour guide. However, the selection and quality of the included lunch buffet (which was an extra charge), was very poor and needs improvement. I would not recommend paying extra for it.
