Cost Saver Circle Island Tour

Visit Oahu's Most Scenic & Cultural Sights

TOUR DESCRIPTION

This tour traverses the beautiful island of Oahu and highlights famous, must-see landmarks and scenic vistas.

Thoughtfully priced for families and budget conscious travelers, this excursion offers live narration that breathes life to the rich history of Oahu. Convenient round trip transportation from the Waikiki area.

Explore Haleiwa Town, lunch at a local eatery of your choice, enjoy a refreshing shaved ice and browse quaint boutiques and art galleries. Treat yourself to a Dole Whip and discover the origins of the pineapple at Dole Plantation before heading back to Waikiki with memories that’ll last long after your vacation. A later departure makes booking at the last minute possible and the shorter duration of the tour allows for nighttime fun in Waikiki. Exclusive to this tour, a drive-through the grounds of the Laie Temple which sits atop a hill encircled by cascading pools.

Tour Highlights:
    • 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.  
        • Chinaman’s Hat, officially Mokoli’i, or “little lizard” in Hawaiian, an islet 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.
