Know More about this tour

Begin at sunrise as you head out to re-live a striking historical moment in time at the World War II Valor in the Pacific Monument and USS Arizona Memorial.  In this quietly moving place, you experience the history, tragedy, and heroism of the attack that propelled the U.S. into World War II.   Take a boat ride out to the 184’ USS Arizona Memorial structure that actually spans the mid-portion of the battleship itself as it rests on the harbor floor.

The day’s journey begins in earnest.  After passing through the center of Oʻahu and alongside Wheeler Airfield, one of the first targeted objectives of the Japanese naval attack, you head toward the North Shore.  The famous Dole Plantation provides a refreshing stop.  Feed the koi fish in the plantation fish pond or grab a sweet frozen pineapple DoleWhip® .

Catch the laid-back local rhythm of the North Shore as you pass through the small towns with just the right mix of surfing culture and country island-style. Sunset Beach. Banzai Pipeline.  Waimea Bay.  The shoreline’s famous names come to life as your guide shares fascinating local facts and tales.

Time to stretch your legs and discover where old Laʻie comes to life!  The Hukilau Marketplace is a vintage throwback to 1950’s Hawaii where nostalgic foods, handmade goods and friendly locals give you a taste of the North Shore’s good ol’days.  Enjoy a COMPLIMENTARY LUNCH BUFFET on us at the Hale Aloha OR wander the Marketplace and make your own choices amongst the varied island delights.

Turning towards the majestic power of the island’s lush and rugged mountain range, you rise up to the final battlefield where King Kamehameha fought to unify the Hawaiian Islands.   Standing high on the windswept Nuʻuanu Pali cliffs, you can feel its wild and tragic history, an ancient parallel to the morning’s Pearl Harbor stories of bravery in the face of conflict. 

Waimanalo. Sherwood Forest. Makapuʻu. Sandy Beach.  These are the bodysurfing playgrounds that draw locals from all around the island.Beware. It is not as easy as it looks!  Seabirds soar above the island’s windswept coastline where ancient lava fields descend into the sea. Halona blowhole, a natural underground lava tube, funnels plumes of ocean water into the sky in syncopation with the sea.  Hanauma Bay hovers on the eastern tip of the island-home to a living coral reef and safe haven for fish and marine animals.

Early afternoon will find you turning back towards Honolulu, cruising around the slopes of Diamond Head, Hawaii’s most famous landmark.
Don’t forget your camera for photo opportunities galore.  The young and young-at-heart will be entertained by island folklore and history shared by your guide throughout the day.  It is the complete island experience for the whole family.

  • The only problem was the weather because it was very windy. So our boat was the last boat to get on to the Memorial because of the winds. We felt we were lucky to get on the Memorial but the wind took away being able to see the ship and could not see any of the oil that comes to surface. The water was moving way too fast. Because of the winds, we were not on the Memorial very long due to our safety so this was very disappointing too.!

    The rest of the tour by bus was awesome. The driver of the bus was so knowledgeable about everything and was so patient with all of us on the bus. He picked us up at 5:57am and left us off about 4:15 we were never tired or bored. We recommend everyone to take this tour.

  • Great tour, the guide was awesome, made sure we saw Pearl Harbor with spotty conditions and we got to see the whole island. It was great. Couldn't have been happier with the tour. Our preschoolers really enjoyed it too.

  • This was a great tour. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to see a lot in a short time. It was a very early start 6am, hard to take on holidays but well worth it. The Pearl Harbour tour was great. Lucky we had an early start cause at 7am there were people already lined up to go in. The drive Noah, hope correct spelling if not I apologise was great. So funny and so informative. His knowledge of the island was amazing. We had a very memorable day. Loved it.

  • This tour was amazing and our tour guide Brandon was great, very helpful and informative. This was a great tour took us all around the entire island. Highly recommend especially for first time visitors

  • Prompt pickup in the morning its early but its worth it!. Is a long but amazing day - you feel like you have accomplished a lot after this tour. Pearl Harbor includes most things except a visit onto the USS Michigan and is quite a sombre experience. The doll plantation was a lot of fun, as well as the lunch provided at north shore. Exceptional lookouts throughout the afternoon on the east side of the island, as well as some hilarious stories throughout the day. Well worth it!

  • Our guide Eugene was absolutely phenomenal. Over the course of the day, I learned so much history about the state and the island! I would highly recommend this tour to anyone with a day to spare as you cover it all. Take the tour the first day you are in town so that you can go back to some of your favorites later in your stay.

  • The part of the tour that visits Pearl Harbor is not to be missed. This is a memorial that everyone should see and experience.

    The rest of the tour circles the island as advertised. It can't stop at the beautiful north and east shore beaches due to local ordinances prohibiting tour vans/shuttle busses from stopping. However it does stop at tourist traps Dole pineapple farm and a Macadamia nut farm which by comparison aren't worth it and pretty much a waste of time. However, the lunch that is provided was excellent and based on the numerous tours we've taken, the best we've had.

    The condition of the roads around the island are horrible. Our bus bumped, creaked and jostled us around for hours. Honestly we were glad to get off shuttle bus.

    In summary, some of this was good and some of it wasn't. We get to see some of the island's beauty but only by driving/bumping by it.

  • Our tour guide was very friendly, kind and knowledgeable. We could not have had a more pleasant tour. It was AWESOME !

  • Overall the tour was good. We had a very knowledgeable driver about the Pearl Harbor attack and about early settlements of Hawaii. If anything, it perhaps was a bi too long. We were certainly ready to get off the bus. The many stops were good. The buffet lunch at the Polynesian Plantation was excellent.
    The one disappointment was we were under the impression we would be picked up at our Waikiki hotel. Thank heavens one of the hotel bellman checked to find out our pick up point was a block away at another hotel.

  • What a great tour, so many places seen in the one tour, highly recommend this to everyone. Our driver for the day was Rocky and he was fabulous, so full of information and knew about everything that you could possible need to know. Just wish we could have had more time at the Dole plantation.
