What You Can Expect

Small-Group Oahu Highlights Tour from Waikiki

Visit the Polynesian Cultural Center

After pickup from your Waikiki hotel, your expert guide will take you to historic Pearl Harbor, a must-see while on Oahu. Visit the new Pearl Harbor Visitor’s Center, where you can observe war relics, authentic uniforms and interactive museum exhibits that chronicle World War II and the infamous attack on Pearl Harbor.

Then, hop on the shuttle and head to the USS Arizona Memorial to remember the tragedy that struck the battleship, which now rests on the harbor floor. A solemn and emotional place, the USS Arizona Memorial is one of America’s most moving monuments, and your guide’s compelling storytelling and informative narration will make this experience unforgettable.

Continue your tour to the North Shore, known for its epic beaches. Visit the Dole Pineapple Plantation for an in-depth look at one of Hawaii’s most important exports, and spend some time at Sunset Beach and Waimea Bay, where world-class surfers flock during the winter’s big wave season.

Stop by La'ie Point for some incredible views, and visit Tropical Farms Coffee Plantation for a chance to enjoy some tasty island treats including coffee and macadamia nuts.

Celebrate diverse Polynesian culture as you travel to Oahu’s East Shore. Enter a world of Pacific traditions at the Polynesian Cultural Center, featuring interactive exhibits themed around the islands of ancient Polynesia. You'll meet real-life Polynesians as you explore recreated island villages, each revealing unique cultural traditions, authentic demonstrations, stories, songs, dances and much more.

Sit down to a lovely lunch buffet of Hawaiian and Polynesian fare with your fellow travelers. Then, it's off to Byodo-In Temple, a replica of a 900-year-old Buddhist temple in Kyoto, Japan. You may recognize this impressive structure – it has been used in TV shows such as Lost and Hawaii Five-0!

Your last stop is Nu'uanu Pali Lookout, where you’ll catch some lovely coastal views before ending your tour in Waikiki around 2:30pm.

Customer Reviews

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2014

This tour was one of the highlights of our vacation in Oahu! My husband and I enjoyed the day visiting Pearl Harbour, north shores of Oahu, Byodo-In Temple, Dole Pineapple Plantation, Tropical Farms coffee farm, the Polynesian Cultural Centre, and other places. The itinerary was a good mix of cultural, scenic, and historical venues. Our tour guide, Kapena, was very knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. My husband and I had booked several excursions during our vacation in Oahu and Maui; Kapena was definitely the best tour guide by far!
