Shortly after, gaze at the beautiful Byodo-In Temple, a replica of the Byodo-in Temple in Japan, built to commemorate the 100-year anniversary of the first Japanese immigrants in Hawaii. 

Cruise along 7 miles of world-famous surfing beaches on Oahu’s north shore and sample the local flavors along the way. Waimea Valley and its waterfalls await you, discover this beautiful place steeped with history, spirituality and island traditions. 

Follow your guide through the botanical gardens of this vast and tranquil setting. Learn how deeply embedded tradition is in today’s Hawaiian culture. Stop at the historic Dole Plantation surrounded by rows of pineapples and fields of sugarcane.

Very prompt and well organized tour. A good overview of the island sights. The Temple and the botanical garden/waterfall were the highlights. Just as others said could have skipped Dole, we did enjoy the small nut company though. Chelsie, our driver was extremely organized and fun. She made laminated booklets for each row of seats that were done very well and sent around several other pictures showing what she was talking about. The lunch at Fumis was very good, a young man was playing his guitar and singing, also told corny jokes. Fun day!

Kim was so sweet, full of knowledge and humor, and did an incredible job. This tour was a great use of our time (we only had 2.5 days in Oahu), and maximized our view of the island without having to rent a car. I felt like we spent the right amount of time everywhere, except we could have spent more time at the botanical gardens and less time at Dole (though I know people love Dole). Thank you for everything, Kim!

Our driver was amazing, he showed up promptly, and was very friendly and courteous. Despite rain and one of the planned sites being closed due to rain (causes potentially hazardous conditions) and mechanical issues, he remained calm and upbeat and taught us so much about Hawaii, history, the people, the food. I would highly recommend this tour. They will make sure your experience is one that lasts a lifetime!
