Set out on an adventure to discover Oahu's majestic grandeur with a tour around the island. From the shores of Waikiki to the mountains of Ko'olau and the sugarcane fields around the historic Dole Plantation, your day is filled with the history and beauty that make this an unforgettable destination.

Your journey begins as your guide leads you from the beaches of Waikiki to the giant volcanic cone of Diamond Head. Pass through the exclusive neighborhood of Kahala, where mansions and beach houses sit side by side, and get some photos of the vivid blue hues of the reef-filled waters in Hanauma Bay.

When you venture into the Ko'olau mountain range, your guide shows you the lookout at Nu'uanu Pali, site of the battle where Kamehameha the Great conquered Oahu and united the Hawaiian Islands. In a nearby valley, you visit the Japanese-style shrine of Byodo-In Temple, built to commemorate the history of immigration from Japan to the island.

Next, a ride along the famous North Shore beaches brings you to the Waimea Valley, home to historic stone terraces and one of the world's finest collections of Polynesian plants. Make your last stop at the historic Dole Plantation, surrounded by rows of pineapple and fields of sugarcane stalks. Learn the pineapple's key role in Hawaii's agriculture and as a symbol of local hospitality to complete your insightful journey.

The tour guide Shannon was super nice, knowledgeable and entertaining. The full day tour was worth the price. We never get board or tired because we have an amazing tour guide.

Good entertaining bus driver & lots of stops along the way. Saw things we would have missed if we’d driven ourselves

Shannon was great very knowledgeable I would like if it included diamon head in it. If we actually got to climb it instead of dole plantation, that was just a gift shop a very expensive one. Shannon really made my tour great and I learned a lot!
