Overview

Explore Oahu's landscape and history during this full-day guided sightseeing tour from Waikiki. Discover the island's beauty through visits to Halona Blowhole, Hanauma Bay and the surfer's beaches on the North Shore. Stop at historic sites like the USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor and Nu'uanu Pali while your guide shares engaging, informative commentary about the natural resources, history and culture of Oahu. This comprehensive tour is perfect for those who only have a short time to spend on the island.
  • Full-day guided sightseeing tour of Oahu and Pearl Harbor, from Waikiki
  • Tour the USS Arizona Memorial and Pearl Harbor Visitor Center
  • Travel by coach around the entire island of Oahu with an expert guide
  • Snack on a special pineapple dessert at the Dole Plantation

Following pickup at your Waikiki hotel in the early morning, board your coach and head for the first stop on your ten-hour tour, the USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor.

Follow your guide on a tour through the museum and memorial, beginning with a 25-minute film about the history of Pearl Harbor. Then, board a boat for the brief trip out to the memorial itself, a building built over the submerged ship. Through the clear floor of the structure, you can see the battleship on the ocean floor below. Walk around the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center, perusing the World War II artifacts and educational displays.

Return to your comfortable coach and set out on your sightseeing tour of Oahu. Drive to the North Shore to see famous surfing beaches like Pipeline, Waimea Bay and Sunset. Stop at the Dole Plantation for a frozen pineapple treat and a stroll through the gift shop.

Midday, stop for lunch (own expense).

Stop at Nuʻuanu Pali lookout, where King Kamehameha I won a fierce battle for control of Oahu in 1795. Enjoy panoramic views of Kailua Bay and Kanehoe Bay, then head down through the mountains towards the coast, stopping at Halona Blowhole and Hanauma Bay. Listen as your guide offers information about all the sites, ask questions, and be sure to have your camera ready.

Return to Waikiki for drop-off at your hotel around 4 pm.

Excellent day. Great driver "Shorts", lots of story telling. Pearl Harbor was great, could have stayed a little longer as there is so much to see and read.

Pearl Harbor tour was good but a little long. I wished the Dole Plantation time was longer than 30 minutes... an hour would have been great. Lunch was fabulous! and the stops along the way was nice too.

We had a wonderful tour with Vanessa! She was so genuine in her love of the island and shared so much history with us! I couldn’t recommend this tour more, particularly if Vanessa is your guide!

This was by far the most informative well planned out trip we could of done. Our tour guide Shorts was excellent and exceeded all of our expectations. He was a wealth of information, never pausing to find his place, humorous, and seemed to truly enjoy his job. Although some of the stops are short, remember that you are packing many sights and miles into 10 hours, this is by far the best way to see the island . We rented a car for the week and did much on our own, but never would of been able to coordinate this on our own. This was a great value, fantastic lunch included, and is highly recommended!
