A delightful private tour beneath the green Ko'olau mountains, along the blue Pacific Ocean
The magnificent green Ko'olau mountains, the endless miles of blue ocean, and the warm Aloha of the Hawaiian people will make this tour a very special experience! We'll visit the Pali lookout to enjoy a view that Mark Twain called the most beautiful in the world, continue to Kailua beach, and then visit the Byodo-In Temple, a replica of a 900-year-old Japanese Buddhist Temple. We'll then proceed to the beautiful North Shore, beneath the spectacular cliffs of the Ko'olau mountains. Along the way we'll stop at the Kualoa Ranch, where there are many fun activities to choose from, including touring film sites, horseback riding, ATV riding, and ziplining. We will then continue to Waimea Falls and Beach, the charming, historic surf town of Haleiwa, and (if time allows) Dole Plantation.
On this tour I will suggest places to stop but YOU will decide where to do so, according to your preferences. I look forward to being your hostess with all the Ho'okipa (customer service) you deserve, and the Aloha of Hawaii!
