Highlights
  • Oahu Grand Circle tour by minibus takes you to top sights in one day
  • Ideal overview of Oahu for first-time visitors 
  • Stop to snorkel with turtles and optionally paddle board or kayak
  • Guide tells you facts about Oahu you might miss on your own
What to Expect
Your Oahu Grand Circle tour begins with pickup from your Waikiki hotel. Step on board 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 historic 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.

The tour guide was amazing but frankly the tour was not worth the money. We stayed 5-10 min at every stop except the places they want you to spend money like Dole Plantation and a souvenir shop. The macadamia farm was a cool stop. We stopped by a place named Mikes and it famous

Mike and Mike were very good tour guides. They took us to lots of great places and gave us a good review of the history of each place. Just a few negatives which are beyond Mike’s control. The area for snorkelling I think was not very good. It was very busy and not the best
