It was here in 1795 that Kamehameha The Great conquered the island of Oahu in one of the bloodiest battles in Hawaiian history. Led by Kalanikupule, the defenders of Oahu were driven back up into the valley where they were trapped above the cliff. More than 400 of Kalanikupule's soldiers were driven off the edge of the cliff to their deaths 1,000 feet below.
**Important Notification:
A recent landslide and the subsequent shutdown/ closures of nearby roads by the State of Hawaii is currently making it impossible for us to visit one of our stops on your Ultimate Circle Island Adventure.
The affected location is the Pali Lookout. We can still offer you eleven scheduled stops around the island though because we are adding a replacement location: Haleiwa Bay, where we will look for endangered Green Sea Turtles and see a Baywatch Hawaii filming location. The State is planning extensive repairs for the next two months until about August this year. This period of course can be shorter or it can be extended by the State but as soon as they open the roads again we are reverting to the original itinerary. The tour price remains unaffected by this itinerary change.

Stop At: Byodo-In Temple, Kaneohe, Oahu, Hawaii

The Temple grounds are a lushly landscaped paradise nestled in a cleft of the pali and are home to wild peacocks and hundreds of Japanese koi carp. The beautiful grounds include a large reflecting pond, meditation niches, and small waterfalls. Visitors describe this destination as beautiful, peaceful, and restful.
The TV series Hawaii Five-O and Magnum, P.I. featured several episodes where the temple is incorporated into the plot. The temple and its gardens also appeared in an episode of the ABC series Lost, "House of the Rising Sun" in season one as the home of Sun's father.

    We had the best tour guide (Jojo) and driver (June). He gave many recommendations on where to eat and places to visit. He had several Island tales which were very fun. Our tour ran according to schedule, so we had time to see the Sea Turtles swim about (I cannot remember which beach this took place). We were able to adventure the Botanical Gardens (Waimea Bay), Dole Pineapple Plantation, North Shore and a lot of other spots in the O'ahu. Lunch was good, which is included in the price (great deal by the way). My favorite part was the volcanic rocks. We went to a beach where the youngest volcanic rock formations (on the island, 77k years old) were right there for us to touch. Overall, I highly recommend this tour group.

    The tour guide was a real teacher and learned so many things geographically and culturally. The food was good and ach stop was interesting.

  • 07-Nov-2022

    The driver, Mr. Kim, was skilled, kind, and very friendly. Our tour guide, Mr. Jojo, is impressively knowledgeable, fun, detailed, and personable. The bus was clean and comfortable! Every stop, every lookout was picturesque. We have a great time!

  • 05-Nov-2022

    Excellent Experience!! Super easy process, communication & hotel pick up was easy. Jojo & Kim were Excellent! Jojo explained everything in detailed but in a fun way. Such an Awesome Experience. Would highly recommend.

  • 05-Nov-2022

    The hike to Weimar Falls was beautiful, and it felt great to stretch our legs. We saw many beaches along the shore that we would not have seen if we didn’t take the tour. Our guide, Greg, was VERY talkative and gave us history lessons, along with recommendations for restaurants and hikes for the future. Of course, Dole Plantation was colorful and delicious…I loved the pineapple garden.

  • 04-Nov-2022

    We saw lots of beautiful scenery and had great stops, but actually Greg’s commentary was the best part! Second only to Fumi’s!

  • 04-Nov-2022

    Had an amazing time. Jojo kept us entertained the entire time with stories and legends about the island (some true, most not!) Everything ran perfectly and we were even able to get in an extra stop. Perfect way to see the island for the first time.

  • 04-Nov-2022
