Why Travelers Choose This Tour

Plenty of stops, at a combination of top sights and lower-key spots, offers visitors a comprehensive view of O'ahu.
Following pickup at your Waikiki hotel, board your minibus and meet your small tour group of 20 people or fewer and your local guide.

Travel first to Diamond Head, stopping for a photo-op at the spectacular lookout before heading to check out Halona Blowhole, where the ocean waves crash into a lava tube and spray water 50 feet (15 meters) in the air. 

Back aboard the minibus, head for Makapu’u Beach, passing beautiful Sandy Beach along the way. See Manana Island (Rabbit Island) and views of Makapu'u Point Lighthouse, then head for a secret spot at Waimanalo Beach Park. 

As you drive along the North Shore, see the famous surf beaches like Sunset Beach, Waimea Bay, and Pipeline on the way to Tsue Farm, where you have the chance to purchase a traditional Hawaiian plate lunch. Options include veggie stir fry, teriyaki chicken, shrimp or pork. Cap off your traditional Hawaiian lunch experience with one of Tsue's famous shave ices (own expense). Rent a kayak or paddleboard to explore the Anahulu River during your stop here.

Stop at family-owned macadamia farm, where you get a chance to crack raw macadamia nuts, taste macadamia nut coffee and taste samples of one of Hawaii's most famous products. Leaving the farm, stop at Kualoa Point for photo ops of Mokoli'i, a basalt island in Kane'ohe Bay. Then, head further up the coast to Laie Point, where you get fantastic views of the Ko'olau Mountains in the distance. 

Travel to a site known as 'Turtle Town' for its proliferation of green sea turtles. Embark on a guided snorkeling trip to see this secluded feeding ground and its majestic residents up close. Take a quick shower at the beach park's facilities and change into dry clothes before heading to your last stop, the Dole Pineapple Plantation. Here, see where the bulk of Hawaii's famous pineapples are grown and enjoy a refreshing frozen pineapple treat before heading back to your Waikiki hotel for drop-off.

Great All in One Tour

It was a super fun tour! Even with the coronavirus making everything close down, mike and mike (LOL) took it with a stride and made sure we still got the most out of our tour. Mike (the tour guide) was great! Our family loved his dad jokes and his intensive knowledge about the Hawaiian Islands. We even got to eat Malasadas from Leonard’s Bakery.

Tour was great, snorkeling perhaps not for younger children as the current was fairly strong and water cloudy.

Awesome experience, Dan is a great tour guide. The tour takes you around the island in 9 hours and shows you everything to do. Make sure to go on the tour early in your vacation if you’re not sure what to do.

Our guide, Mike, and driver, Roger, provided our family a fun filled day. You can tell Mike tried really hard to give us all the information needed to so we knew what to expect. He was entertaining and accommodating. We had a lot of fun and got lucky with the great weather.

Amazing tour with M&M
Sade_B
, Mar 2020
Mike and Mike were amazing tour guides, they tried very hard to make the trip enjoyable and make it feel more like a car ride with friends than a rigid tour of Hawaii. It was 100% worth it, Mike gave great advice on the places to go and what to do to get the most out of our trips. I came by myself and was a bit apprehensive with which tour i should book to get a better look of the island and was so glad i chose this one. It was a fun day and would recommend to anyone, especially solo travelers!
