from Majestic Circle Island
Since 1974, “The Majestic Circle Island,” led by E Noa Tours, has been the best way to spend your day enjoying O’ahu’s natural wonders and rich history. Let our trained tour professionals set the stage for you and your family to create memorable experiences that you’ll be sure to remember forever.

This tour is different from all others because it was specifically redesigned to spend the most time “off the bus,” at each stop so that together we can discover all of the things that make our island magical.

This tour uses an air conditioned mini-bus to ensure that group sizes are kept small enough to enjoy each stop with your group and guide. Admission to every stop has been taken care of, just bring money for snacks and souvenirs.

Lunch is included on this tour. Your driver will update you on the daily menu and offer you a few different options from our favorite places to eat.
Wear comfortable walking shoes and bring a change of clothes if you are thinking about taking a quick dip at Waimea Falls.

  • Nu’uanu Pali Lookout – Our first stop of the day is at one of the most scenic and historic places in all of O’ahu. Learn the story about how King Kamehameha united all of the Hawaiian Islands under one monarchy as we visit the very spot where a famous battle took place.

  • Byodo-In Temple – As we drive along the Ko’olau mountain range, we stop to discover a hidden gem tucked away from the main road. Byodo-In Temple was featured by National Geographic in “20 of the world’s most beautiful Buddhist temples,” noting its architectural details and awe inspiring surroundings.

  • Tropical Farms—famously known as “The Little Country Store On Your Way to the North Shore,” Steve and Chrissy Paty started this as a roadside operation in 1987, and now, three decades later, it’s a great place to try different local snacks and learn how to crack open some macadamia nuts as the chickens stand by watching hungrily, hoping you drop a nut or two.
  • North Shore Lunch Stop – Your driver will update you on the daily menu and determine a great place for everyone to enjoy a delicious lunch before driving alongside the world famous North Shore O’ahu coastline on our way to the next adventure.

  • Waimea Valley – Follow your E Noa tour guide on a short hike to a 45' waterfall where you can swim. Learn about the ancient history of Waimea Valley and why it’s considered to be a very significant and religious site.
  • Dole Plantation – We end our day with a drive through Haleiwa Surf Town and beautiful pineapple fields before stopping at the Dole Plantation. Don’t forget to try the world famous Dole Whip frozen dessert, a perfect treat under the Hawaiian afternoon sun!

BONUS STOP(S) – “E Noa” means freedom. In addition to the stops listed above, E Noa tour guides are known to prepare something unique and special for every adventure.

"Not worth it, especially for single traveler"
December 2015
I was bumped because they wanted to sell another ticket. Messed up my vacation schedule so I missed other things later. Two of the stops are just for you to buy things-nothing much to see. Since I had a day to kill on my own, I saw three of the major stops on the shuttle for a lot less money - I was hoping to have more time or better access on the more expensive tour but did not. Very dissatisfied.
