Full description

After being picked up in Waikiki, you will set off for a full day Oahu Island Tour with a local guide, who will take you through the history and culture of Hawaii while you visit some of its lesser-known gems.

There will also be a special stop at the botanical gardens at Waimea Valley, which features dozens of distinct collections with flora from different parts of the world, including the Ogasawara Islands, Central and South America, Fiji, Guam, and the Mascarene Islands. Stroll through the Hawaiian collection and enjoy an assortment of plants found only in Hawaii, many of which are rare and endangered. There is a waterfall in the garden as well where you can swim, with lifeguards present. Guests must wear provided life jackets. The tour will also stop at nine additional locations throughout the day, including the Halona Blow Hole, Dole Pineapple Plantation, a Macadamia Nut Farm, and the north shore of Oahu. At the end of the day you will be saying "Mahalo" like a local, as you absorb the local views outside Waikiki and dine on local delicacies.

It was good just too long and the bus was very cold.we asked him to turn it down but he didn't. He talked the whole 11 hours which was informative at times but other times it would have been nice to have quite and enjoy. Also the tour left at 7 and we returned at 7pm. We could have spent less time at some places.

We absolutely loved this tour! Brie was an excellent guide! We all joked this was also the secret foodie tour of Hawaii because we stopped at so many delicious food stops as well. I only wish we had more time at the botanical gardens and the dole plantation is just a gift shop stop- you don’t actually go to the plantation

From the pick up to the drop off this trip was incredible. So informative! It was actually nice to just sit back and enjoy the view and the rude to the many incredible sights. We made out way the dole plantation, hidden gems, the botanical gardens and the wiamea waterfall! So beautiful. Followed by lunch and then a nut farm, lol, a macadamia nut farm. I would do it all over again!
