Heavenly views, shrimp trucks and sea turtles


Experience breathtaking views of Windward Oahu from the Pali Lookout. Transport back in time and place to ancient Japan and a re-created Buddhist temple: the Byodo-In. Marvel at a fish pond built by the legendary Menehune some 800 years ago and sample macadamia nuts and Kona Coffee across the street from where 'Jurassic Park' and several 'Lost' episodes were filmed. If you like seafood, hold out for lunch at one of the North Shore's shrimp trucks.

You'll see legendary surf spot Sunset Beach, Waimea Bay and a beach popular with sea turtles. Great souvenir shopping and people watching in historic Haleiwa Town. Nature lovers won't want to miss Waimea Valley. Or take a ride on Dole Plantation's Pineapple Express train.

Itinerary

After I pick you up at your Waikiki-area hotel, Kailua lodging or cruise ship, we head uphill to the Pali Lookout where you'll experience breathtaking views of Windward Oahu. Soon we transport back in time and place to ancient Japan and a re-created Buddhist temple: the Byodo-In. We continue up the coast to a fish pond built by the legendary Menehune some 800 years ago, the island known as 'Chinaman's Hat' and fruit stands where you can sample coconut and whatever's in season. If you prefer seafood, you can't beat lunch at one of the North Shore's shrimp trucks.

You'll see legendary surf spot Sunset Beach, Waimea Bay and a beach popular with sea turtles. Great souvenir shopping and people watching in historic Haleiwa Town. On the way back to Honolulu, if time permits, we'll stop at Dole Plantation. You can ride the Pineapple Express train or wind your way through the world's largest maze.

A Recent Review of this tour

Once again - Donna was the perfect local tour guide. We enjoyed our 1st tour so much we booked a second tour beginning the morning we arrived after our cruise. The whole family had a great time. 5 stars! Do not hesitate to book. Donna is absolutely wonderful, pleasant and extremely knowledgeable. We hope to return and use her again (for the 3rd time) in the future. Very sincerely, BG
