Your Oahu Grand Circle tour begins with pickup from your Waikiki hotel. Step onboard your minibus to join your guide and group of 20 people or fewer.

First, drive to Diamond Head and stop to snap a photo at the lookout. The popular Halona Blowhole is next, where you see ocean waves crash into a lava tube and spray water up to 50 feet (15 meters) in the air.

Then, pass by pristine beaches and historical lighthouses on your way to Makapu’u Beach, Waimanalo Beach Park, and Sunset Beach. Stretch your legs at Tsue Farm and optionally try a traditional Hawaiian lunch or rent a kayak or paddleboard to explore the Anahulu River (own expense).

Next, take a quick snorkel at a spot known for its sea turtles. Shower and change, and then visit your final stop at the Dole Plantation.

Your tour ends with hotel drop-off in Waikiki.

Great way to get an overview of the island.

Had a fabulous day trip with "Chief" Henry and Mario. Excellent commentary and laughs along the way. All 4 of our family enjoyed the day. The trip highlighted other places to visit too. Ps HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MARIO FOR THIS SATURDAY! 🤟

Turtle snorkelling along with North Shore surf spots

An absolute "must do" tour!

I highly recommend this tour... particularly if you can request Mike and Uncle Henry as your tour guides! We saw both major attractions and some hidden gems "off the beaten path"... was a really great way to see so much of the island.
