Oahu Grand Circle Island Tour with Lunch

Their acclaimed Grand Circle Island Tour of Oahu is the most enjoyable and informative way to see the beauties of the entire island in a single day. This exciting 120-mile excursion includes the key sites of Hawaii’s most visited island.

Your professional driver guide will meet you in Waikiki in a deluxe tour vehicle and share the many natural and cultural landmarks of Oʻahu. From the South Shore with far reaching views of the Pacific Ocean to the windward coastline surrounded by the towering Ko’olau Mountain Range, then onward to the famous North Shore where waves pound pristine white sandy beaches, and back to Honolulu – you’ll take it all in during this one-of-a-kind tour.

Tour Highlights

  • Exclusive Kahala Avenue is known as “Hawaii’s Beverly Hills”, and you’ll view the stunning multi-million-dollar properties in this affluent community while you travel toward the South Shore sea cliffs area.
  • Halona Blowhole acts like an ocean-driver geyser as the ocean breezes push waves into the cave below and a hole in the rock formation shoots sea spray jets high into the air. Accessibility to the overlook is dependent upon parking congestion situation at this popular stop.
  • Nu’uanu Pali Lookout is the location of the 1795 battle in which King Kamehameha I victoriously united Oahu under his rule. The epic battle claimed the lives of hundreds of warriors forced over the Pali’s sheer cliffs. At 1,200 feet above the green and blue views of Windward Oahu, the Pali Lookout is one of Oahu’s most breathtaking scenic points.
  • Byodo-In Temple is a stunning replica of a temple in Uji, Japan, Byodo-In. It is nestled in the Valley of the Temples on the slopes of the Ko’olau Mountain Range. Byodo-In commemorates the first Japanese immigrants in Hawaii and was constructed entirely without nails. Its beautiful peacocks and hundreds of Japanese Koi contribute to one of the most peaceful and picturesque locations on the island.
  • Waimea Valley, is an area steeped in historic, cultural and spiritual significance.  Located on the North Shore of Oahu it is a place you won’t soon forget.  Soak in the magic of the valley and be in the quiet of nature surrounded by beautiful flowers, rare plants, cultural sites, and a delightful waterfall for swimming (weather-permitting).  Please note for safety reasons lifejackets are required to swim and may be rented at the falls.
  • Mokoli’i or “little lizard” in Hawaiian, an islet sits offshore in Kaneohe Bay. Mokoli’i will be viewed near Kualoa as your tour vehicle winds its way along the scenic coastline.
  • North Shore Surfing Breaks, including world famous Sunset, Waimea Bay, and others, are viewed from your tour vehicle as it crosses the island’s big wave territory. The region is known for its fabulously large wintertime waves and international surfing competitions.
  • Historic Haleiwa Town, with its preserved old plantation character and surf town image, makes its shops and restaurants popular among visitors and Oahu residents. It’s the gateway to the North Shore for those arriving from Honolulu and is the area’s largest commercial center.
  • Dole Plantation is “Hawaii’s Complete Pineapple Experience.” Learn, see, and taste the fruit that is part of the island’s heritage and enjoyed throughout the world. Walk through Dole’s country store where delicious ice-cold Dole Whip treats are available. The quintessential brief and final stop before heading back to Waikiki.
