Take exactly the tour you want.
This tour will be customized exactly the way you want it. There are some stops everyone includes, and others we only get to occasionally. If you're not sure where you want to go, we'll visit the most popular locations around Oahu.
We can start out with a stop by the rainforest, take in the breathtaking view at the Pali Lookout, and head to the Byodo-in, a temple nestled in the rainforest at the foot of the Ko'olau Mountains. Depending on your start time and meal preferences, we can eat incredible authentic Hawaiian food, American food, or (the most popular option) get some of the famous North Shore Garlic Shrimp.
Most tours include a visit to at least one of the legendary North Shore surf beaches: Sunset Beach, Banzai Pipeline, or Waimea Bay. Some tours do all three. We also have the option of stopping in Haleiwa, either just for a driveby, or an extended shopping visit.
Other optional stops include the, Dole Plantation, Dole's coffee processing facility in Waialua, and several Hawaiian heiau (temples. )
