Amazing 16-Point Itinerary
Come let the fun out, and get ready for an awesome day of fun in the sun. We won't have too long at each stop, but we will cover some major ground and definitely give you the "lay of the land" here on Oahu. Be sure and check out the video to see a preview of some of the locations.
Diamond Head Beach Lookout
Diamond Head Beach Lookout was a strategic military site during WWII, and a favorite surfing spot for locals. There’s always a wave to be surfed at this beach. The lookout provides a good view of this hotspot in the foothills of Diamond Head.
Situated Near the blowhole in an incredibly beautiful corner of Oahu is a secret beach made famous in the movie "From Here to Eternity." This little cove is extraordinary, and one of Oahu's hidden gems. It's also just about the most relaxing place on the planet!
The Halona Blowhole
Come and marvel at this geologic wonder as it shoots water into the heavens. As the waves crash into the rocks, the water moves underneath the rocks from underwater caves. Then the pressure builds up and it shoots the water as high as you can see. One of Oahu's geologic wonders!
Makapuu Point Lookout (Drive By)
You will get a glimpse at one of the most awe-inspiring views in the Eastern Corner of Oahu. The vista from the Makapu'u Point lookout is something to behold. The Bluest of Blues, the Greenest of Greens, and ancient jagged lava rock surrounding yellow sand.
Byodo-In Buddhist Temple
The stunning Buddhist temple was built in the 1960s to commemorate the 100-year anniversary of the first Japanese immigrants to Hawaii. It is a replica of a 900-year-old temple in Uji, Japan and features traditional Japanese architecture and landscaping.
Sandy Beach Park
Next, we'll come upon the body boarding, body surfing, skim boarding, and broken neck capital of the world... Sandy Beach. A famous hangout for locals, and just amazing playground, Sandy Beach is the perfect place to watch the experts play with expert waves...
Behold the legendary Chinaman’s Hat! This awesome geological formation is located on one of the most beautiful parts of the island. This picturesque island off the coast of Kaneohe Bay is a volcanic formation that is about as iconic with the Island of Oahu as Diamond Head.
Sunset Beach North Shore (Drive By)
Known for big wave surfing during the winter season, it is a site for surf competitions and home to the prestigious Vans Triple Crown of Surfing. We’re not allow to get out at this location, but when the surf is up you can see the waves from the bus.
Macadamia Nut Tropical Farm
Take a look back at the plantation days in Hawaiian history. Learn the life cycle of the nut from flower to harvest. Indulge in all-you-can-eat Macadamia Nut Samples, grab a hot cup of Kona Coffee, and go outside to talk story with the Samoan Chiefs.
Exotic Fruit Stand
Mango, Pineapple, Coconut, Breadfruit, Dragon Fruit, Egg Fruit, Lilikoi, Honey Dew, Cantaloupe, Papaya, Apple Bananas, Ice Cream Bananas, Kiwis, Lychee, Rambutan, Sapote, Chi Chi... Every fruit that you've ever heard of, and definitely every fruit that you've never heard off.
The shrimp served on the North Shore is never frozen and actually locally raised in ponds right on their property. Enjoy local, Hawaiian dishes, their famous shrimp sautéed with butter and garlic, or tons of other options that don’t include seafood.
Sea Turtle Beach (Alii Beach)
It's time to go snorkeling with the Sea Turtles. These curious creatures are docile and overwhelmingly cute. The area is perfect for snorkeling and seeing some of the local sea life. Large sea turtles (“Honu”) are often seen in the shallow waters here.
Dole Pineapple Plantation
Dole Plantation offers a variety of unique gifts and refreshments including fresh pineapple, and DoleWhip ice cream. This is a great spot to grab things to bring home, or send as gifts. Our stop here does NOT allow time for the train ride or maze.
Green World Coffee Farms
Last stop right down the road... Green World grows boutique coffee and has many coffee trees growing on the property so you can get a look up close. They also have a great coffee shop so you can fuel up for the journey back to Waikiki.

Would do this again!
John Jr. was our tour guide today and he was great! I really enjoyed my time the whole bus ride, as the tour guide kept us entertained with singing songs and playing the ukulele, making jokes and sharing wonderful facts about the wonderful island of Oahu. Definitely would do this again and prefer John Jr as our tour guide!
Wow! I cannot say enough!
WOW. I cannot say enough about this tour and especially the tour guide!! Well worth the money. Our tour guide was Cousin A. One of the most knowledgeable people I’ve ever met, and not just about Hawaii. Beautiful views, provided donuts, history, delicious lunch (not included), snorkeling – BEAUTIFUL. Experience was bar-none and I wish I could have Ariel tour me around the globe!
It was good times!
I managed to squeeze this one trip in still before I left Oahu. I am very glad I did. Uncle Tony did a great job making us all feel welcome and connected with the rest of our group, for the whole trip we treated eat other as Ohana and made sure everyone was happy and on board. The conversation and information was good, the jokes were funny, the atmosphere was good times as we went from site to site. Yes we snorkeled, yes we saw turtles and even a monk seal, yes we ate well (probably too many nuts), we saw a lot of beautiful scenery and got many photos. Enjoyed the songs, the music, the stories, the people and the whole experience. It will not be forgotten. Mahalo.
I will never forget it!
This experience was one I will never forget the stops where all local such as a farm stand with fresh fruit and coconuts, A Macadamia Nut Farm with the best macadamia nuts to try, a local coffee stand, and sea turtles plus so much more. What really made everything perfect was our tour guide and bus driver both local Hawaiians. AKA our tour guide and mike our bus driver thank you for such an amazing experience mahalo.
Holy cow! Snorkeling with turtles...
My wife and I are in Honolulu celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and can’t thank cousin Johnny Jr. enough for starting us out on such a fun day. From the start we could tell we probably made the best choice selecting Aloha Circle Island Tour as an introduction to Honolulu. Little did we know we would get the history of the island, but Hawaii itself and the people as well are fascinating. Or, was cousin Johnny Jr. just that good of a tour guide…
Treated us like family!
Cousin G was awesome, funny and I loved all the island history. We went to so many cool spots to stop and get a feel of the local living and food. I love how he treated everyone like we were family and was joking around with us. Great sense of humor! I’ll be waiting for that family reunion invitation!
