Grand Circle Island Sightseeing Tour

Location: Waikiki, Oahu

Visit Oahu's best and most beautiful locations during this all day sightseeing tour around the island. Starting our day in the south, and ending on the North Shore our expert guides will give you a real experience of what Hawaii is all about. During the hot afternoon hours you will even have the option to swim at Waimea Falls located in a lush rainforest valley!

What to Expect

Your day starts with a morning pick up from Waikiki hotels and resorts. From there we head south. As we leave the city you will quickly notice the landscape changing becoming more dry and arid and exposing the natural beauty of sea cliffs, spouting blowholes, and southern look out points.

Once we round the southern point we start our way up Oahu's famous rainforest Eastside. Here the landscape changes again with towering green mountains climbing up into the clouds. We will visit historical sites, big mountain lookout points, and a replica ancient buddhist temple built.

After that, we wind our way along an scenic ocean view road up to the famous North Shore. Here you will have time to enjoy a beautiful botanical garden showcasing native plants.and even swim underneath Waimea Falls! This is the best way to feel refreshed during the heat of the day.

Next we head into Haleiwa Town, the only historic town on Oahu, where you will have one hour to walk through the shops, try local shave ice, and purchase lunch from a local eatery. This is the cutest town on Oahu with its quaint buildings and decor. You will feel transported back into the early 1900s.

Lastly, we visit the Dole Pineapple Plantation where you will learn about the history of pineapple production and treat yourself to the famous Dole Whip ice cream before we head back to Waikiki.
