What You Can Expect

Small-Group Oahu Highlights Tour from Waikiki

Visit the Polynesian Cultural Center

Following pickup from your hotel in the Waikiki area, meet your local guide and small group of 20 people or less, then head to Pearl Harbor. Peruse the Visitor's Center, which contains WWII relics like uniforms and artifacts, as well as interactive museum exhibits.
Board the overwater shuttle out to the USS Arizona Memorial, located just offshore. Listen as your guide details the tragedy that struck when the battleship was sunk and view the wreckage through the floor of the memorial. Then, continue to the North Shore's epic beaches like Waimea Bay and Sunset Beach, world-renowned for their surf spots. Stop by the Dole Plantation to learn about one of Hawaii's most important exports and explore the on-site maze.
At La'ie Point, see stunning views, then enjoy some island treats like coffee and macadamia nuts at the Tropical Farms Coffee Plantation.
On Oahu's Eastern Shore, visit the famous Polynesian Cultural Center to learn about Pacific Islanders' traditions and see themed exhibits, hear songs and witness traditional dances. With your small group, sit down to a lunch of Polynesian and Hawaiian food.
The next stop on your tour is the Byodo-In Temple, an important Buddhist site on Oahu that has been used as a filming location for many television shows and movies.
At Nu'uano Pali lookout, catch some gorgeous island views as you listen to your guide discuss this site's important role in Hawaiian history.

Rick, our guide, did a great job. He was knowledgeable about WWII, Hawaii's history, its people and culture. We enjoyed the history and stories. Lunch was a buffet of Hawaiian cuisine and was very taste. The day was broken up by several stops along the way. Rick took very good care of us. And I can't say he will do it for you but Rick even bought us cookies for a late afternoon snack. It was a wonderful way to get a broad overview of Oahu.
