Your Itinerary

Diamond Head State Monument

Our initial stop takes us to an elevated viewpoint nestled on the eastern slopes of the renowned Diamond Head Volcano in Waikiki. This vantage point provides an excellent opportunity to capture stunning photographs of Oahu's southeastern coastline, offering panoramic views that extend to notable landmarks such as Hanauma Bay and, on clear days, even as far as Maui. Familiarly referred to as the Aviator's Vista, this location carries historical significance as the site where spectators gathered to witness Amelia Earhart embark on her pioneering first solo aviation journey from Hawaii to North America.

Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve

(Pass by)

Hanauma Bay is a stunning and iconic natural bay located on the southeast coast of the island of Oahu. It is a well-known tourist destination and a popular spot for snorkeling and swimming. The bay is formed within a volcanic crater, which has since been eroded by ocean water, creating a beautiful and sheltered crescent-shaped beach. *We do not stop at Hanauma Bay

Halona Blowhole

Marvel at the natural wonder created by molten lava tubes from Oahu's Koko Head crater at the Halona Blowhole. This unique formation, resulting from volcanic eruptions, sends water shooting through a narrow opening in the lava tube, creating a captivating Hawaiian geyser when the surf is just right.

Makapu'u Point

(Pass by)

Embarking on the path to Oahu's windward side, prepare to be captivated by the breathtaking drama of Waimanalo's sea cliffs at Makapu’u Point. Let the deep sapphire waters unfold before your eyes, and as you gaze upon the seascape, behold the allure of Oahu's Manana Island, famously named Rabbit Island for its enchanting contours resembling a whimsical rabbit against the backdrop of the ocean's indigo expanse.

Tropical Farms (The Macadamia Nut Farm Outlet)

After a picturesque drive along Oahu’s eastern coastline, delight in a one-of-a-kind tasting experience at a distinctive macadamia nut shop nestled beneath towering Banyan Trees. Immerse yourself in the distinct flavors of exquisite Kona coffee, relish the richness of macadamia nuts, and succumb to the allure of Hawaiian chocolates, all within the tropical charm of this unique find.

Mokoli’i Island

Immerse yourself in the scenic wonders of Chinaman’s Hat, or Mokoli’i, harmoniously framed by the majestic Kualoa Valley Mountain range. Renowned for its cinematic splendor showcased in iconic films like Jurassic Park, this island earned its moniker from the straw hats worn by Chinese immigrants toiling in Oahu’s sugar plantations during the early 1900s. As you absorb the panoramic beauty, envision the historical tapestry woven into this landscape and appreciate the island's unique blend of natural allure and cultural history.

Fumi's Kahuku Shrimp

Take a break for lunch at a local restaurant, offering the renowned North Shore Garlic Shrimp plate and other local delicacies. Non-shellfish and vegetarian options are available, and don't forget to bring cash for lunch.

Kahuku Farms

Visit a North Shore tropical fruit stand, where you can savor ice-cold coconuts, fresh mangos, and other tropical treats. This delightful stop offers a refreshing array of locally sourced fruits to enhance your journey through the vibrant flavors of Hawaii.

Banzai Pipeline

(Pass by)

Escape the crowds and experience the serenity of Sunset Beach on the North Shore. This picturesque Hawaiian beach offers tranquility, though during winter months, witnesses impressive swells ranging from 30 to 40 feet from the safety of the shore. *Stop dependent on road conditions & driver discretion due to high surf Oct - Jan.

Waimea Botanical Gardens, Oahu

Immerse yourself in the extraordinary botanical collections at Waimea Valley. Explore diverse gardens featuring flora from various parts of the world, including the Ogasawara Islands, Central and South America, Fiji, Guam, and the Mascarene Islands. Wander through the Hawaiian collection, showcasing rare and endangered plants brought to Hawaii from their places of origin. Don't miss the captivating waterfall in the garden, where swimming is allowed, and lifeguards are present. Life jackets are required. *Admission is included ***WAIMEA VALLEY IS CLOSED MONDAYS SEP - MAY ***

Admission Included

Dole Plantation

This stop is designed for us to briefly stop for souvenirs and an authentic Dole Whip ( Dole pineapple soft serve ice cream)! You can't get this treat unless you also visit Disney Land or Disney World (don't be fooled by the imitation products throughout Waikiki). *No Train ride or Maze activities, Dole Whip not included*

A most do tour!! Our tour Guide Robert was excellent very informative and had a great humor. Everyone that comes to Honolulu should do this tour, it’s a great experience. We made a lot of stops for food and fruit, that was great too. I wanna come back and do the tour again!!


Horrible experience. We got late by 15 mins in Waemea Falls and the bus left without us. There was no other bus from the operator to pick us up. Left stranded in Waemea Falls in North Shore and had to take an Uber to come back to hotel. Needless to say, Uber was hugely expensive. One and half hours in Waemea falls is not at all sufficient, with hiking and dip in the falls. No one should take this again. We could not see rest of the tour.


Our guide, Bon Jovi, was phenomenal in his role. He made us feel so welcome and taken care of, provided excellent entertainment, and was amazing with our two young boys. We enjoyed exploring every stop along the way and greatly appreciated Bon Jovi’s relaxed approach in ensuring we all had the time and opportunity to make the most of each place. It was such a great way to get around to some of the places we otherwise wouldn’t have had the time to experience while on our family vacation. Mahalo, Bon Jovi!


Great tour, a nice way to see the island without the hassle of driving yourself. Well paced, knowledgeable driver. The lunch stop for shrimp was very tasty! A lot packed into a day but did not feel rushed.


Awesome tour, highly recommend! Our guide Jay was awesome he had a great sense of humor and kept the day light and fun yet educational at the same time. Perfect way to see the island if not renting a car.


The tour was amazing! Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The views were incredible and we got great pictures! Wish we had a little more time at the botanical garden but would definitely do again!


This tour exceeded our expectations. From the very beginning our guide, Paul was so personable and fun. The entire day was filled with history, laughs and fun. I would definitely do this tour again and recommend it to friends visiting the island. We loved the “wiki wiki” stops and his dynamic energy!


Everything was above and beyond… the tour was very informative and we had plenty of time at all sights.


It was a wonderful day! I loved our guide, Jay. He was very knowledgeable about Hawaii and the history. He gave us recommendations and tips that only the locals would know. He was a great experience!


Awesome scenery and so many places on one tour. This is a great tour to start your vacation and then focus in on areas you want to return and enjoy. Some of the places were pointed out as you are driving by and not even slow down. Still very glad we did it Noah our tour guide was passionate and very knowledgeable with a great sense of humor. He was very decisive to adjust the order of the stops reacting to the changing weather conditions.
