Gorgeous Coastal and Rainforest Views
Experience beautiful vistas with a little Hawaiian history thrown in. Your 4 to 5-hour tour takes you to Diamond Head Lookout, Halona Blow Hole, Makapu'u Lookout and maybe a walk out to the viewpoint above the lighthouse there, shave ice or picnic lunch in 'Nalo Town (Waimanalo), view of the Windward Coast from the Pali Lookout--the site of King Kamehameha I's victory over Oahu's warriors--before heading back to Honolulu via the old road thru the rainforest. Iolani Palace, King Kamehameha I statue, and the Mission Houses round out your 1/2 day tour.
Circle Drive around the east end of Oahu, most-likely starting with Diamond Head Lookout; view points at Halona Blow Hole and Makapu'u Lookout, with an optional 1. 5 mile R/T walk out to Makapu'u Lighthouse; head up the coast to Waimanalo for a local treat or lunch; optional stop at Ulupo He'iau (ancient Hawaiian temple) in Kailua; ascend to the Pali Lookout; complete the circle by driving thru the rainforest back into Honolulu where historic sites await.

We really enjoyed the tour with Donna! She knows a lot about the island. Definitely ask her to take you to the donut place. She is also very funny, we really had fun. We highly recommend her.
