What to Expect
Meet your guide at your hotel at 9am and begin your tour without having to worry about logistics. Your trip includes a stop at Hanauma Bay, a marine sanctuary, and Lanai Lookout for views of other Hawaiian Islands. Your tour continues with a visit to Halona Blowhole and Beach Cove, a naturally occurring lava tube formed in volcanic rock that shoots water into the sky like a geyser. Also on the itinerary is a visit to Makapu’u Lookout for views of Rabbit Island and the Mokulua Islands. Next, explore Oahu’s longest continuous stretch of white sand at Waimanalo Beach, take a dip in the Pacific if you wish and then make your way back to Waikiki with a final stop at the Pali Lookout before returning to your hotel.

Today we had pleasure of Matt driving us around the island. Matt was a bundle of knowledge, friendly, informative and such a professional. We had an 11 year who loves Jeeps and Matt was so great in including her in our conversations. Well worth the money, better than a bus tour
