This tour will take you in a circle around the island. What happens along the way is up to you! I will keep you informed of your options, make recommendations, and keep the tour flexible.

Begin your day with a brief tour of the Downtown Honolulu/Historic area. Stop at Iolani Palace and the King Kamehameha Statue. Then, you are off to the North Shore with a stops at Dole Plantation and/or a Coffee Farm. Next, Historic Haleiwa Town and the famous North Shore beaches. Grab some lunch at one of the many awesome road side restaurants. After lunch, we will drive along the Windward Coast and visit the Pali Lookout, possibly a Macadamia Nut Farm, some of the top rated beaches in the world, and Halona Blowhole Lookout before we arrive back in Honolulu.

A Recent Review of this tour

Daniel was a fantastic guide - our family of kids, parents and grandparents all felt that he went over and above what was expected. He was friendly, knowledgeable and flexible. From the moment I emailed everything we wanted to see to the planning to the reconfirmation and the actual day, Daniel was so easy to deal with and so accommodating. I would encourage anyone thinking about booking to do it - you won't be disappointed! Thank you Daniel - you are a legend!
