What to Expect
Begin your day with pickup from your Waikiki hotel.

Continue through the foothills of the Ko'olau Mountains to Byodo-In Temple, passing yet another vista point en route. Look around this ornate replica of a Japanese Buddhist temple, including a 9-foot-tall (3-meter-tall) statue of Buddha. Take in views of Mokoli’i Island, Kahana Bay, and the beaches of Oahu North Shore on your way to Sunset Beach and Waimea Bay, a world-famous surf spot. Then, head inland to the Dole Plantation. Take a quick stop to view tropical gardens, browse the gift shop, and sample pineapple products (own expense). This tour concludes with hotel drop-off.

I went on the Grand Circle Island Day Tour. Gensin was a very knowledgeable and friendly tour guide and I enjoyed learning more about the island from him! This is a good introductory tour with the perfect balance of stops and driving, any more or less would have been too tiring
