Round Trip Waikiki Transportation
Whatever hotel you are staying at in Waikiki, We will provide comfortable round trip transportation in our semi-private mini-coaches. Just the right size to make sure you can enjoy the Grand Circle Island Tour without being being crowded.
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.
After the Diamond Head Lookout, our second point of interest is the Gold Coast in Kahala. This area is like the Beverly Hills of Hawaii. You will see unbelievably large and luxurious properties and expansive estates.
The Halona Blowhole
The blowhole is a natural occurrence formed by molten lava tubes from volcanic eruptions thousands of years ago. The lava tubes run to the ocean and, when the surf is right, the blowhole shoots water up to 30 feet in the air.
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 our hidden gems.
After the Blowhole and Eternity Beach, 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.
Makapu’u Point Lookout
As we round the Eastern Corner of the Island of Oahu, you will get a glimpse at one of the most awe-inspiring views that you will ever see. The vista from the Makapu’u Point lookout is truly something to behold… The Bluest of Blues, the Greenest of Greens.
Waimanalo Bay is an “off the beaten path” spot with a beach that will leave you in awe of it’s shear beauty. The beach is surrounded by an Ironwood forest. We can’t stop here, but it’s so beautiful we’re gonna drive through so you can see it.
Behold the legendary Chinaman’s Hat! This awesome geological formation is located on one of the most beautiful parts of the island. This stop is one of our guests favorite locations to take pictures. You would have a hard time finding a better beach to have a picnic!
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.
Laie Mormon Temple
After we have our fill over at the Macadamia Nut Plantation, it’s time to get back on the road. The next stop we’ll make is over to the amazingly beautiful Temple of the Church of Latter Day Saints in Laie, on the North Shore of Oahu.
The shrimp served on the North Shore is never frozen and actually locally raised in ponds right on their property. Enjoy their famous shrimp sautéed with butter and garlic, or tons of other options that don’t include seafood… But trust me… The Garlic Shrimp… Ono Grindz Cuz!
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, Jack Fruit… I could go on, but I think I would run out of character limit.
Sunset Beach on North Shore
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.
We have now nourished our bodies, regained our energy stores, and it’s time to make our way out through Haleiwa to go to our snorkeling site. But, along the way there, we will pass through the quaint surfing town of Haleiwa, the most famous city on the North Shore.
Sea Turtle Beach (Alii Beach)
A beautiful spot for snorkeling. Large sea turtles (“Honu”) are often seen in the shallow waters here. The shore area is a combination of sand and rocky outcroppings, making the area perfect for snorkeling a seeing some of the local sea life.
Dole Pineapple Plantation
Dole Plantation offers a wide variety of unique gifts and refreshments including fresh pineapple, and DoleWhip ice cream. This is a great spot to grab some things to bring home, or send as gifts. Our stop here does NOT allow time for the train ride or maze.

Quality is Definitely a Five Star…
Amazing tour! We took the circle island tour with John Jr. as our tour guide. There was never a boring moment from the beginning to the end. Every stop was worth visiting and even my 6-year-old daughter said “The tour was so much fun!”. We purchased the tour from Groupon, but the quality of service is definitely a five star. This tour has become the highlight of our trip to Oahu. Highly recommended!
We went on the Island tour last week and we loved it! Cousin John Jr. was the best tour guide! Loved his ukulele playing and singing! Our 8 old year daughter enjoyed it too. She especially liked the snorkeling with the turtles! Highly recommend!
Cousin A Was Awesome!
Cousin A was awesome! He made the whole tour fun . lots of knowledge even stuff you didn’t need to know, but made it that much more fun. He was Full of energy and clearly loves what he does! Crash coarse in Hawaiian was hilarious!
Definitely Would Do This Again…
John Jr. was our tour guide today and he was great! Really enjoyed my time the whole bus ride, kept us entertained with singing and playing the ukulele, making jokes and wonderful facts of the wonderful island of Oahu. Definitely would do this again and I prefer John Jr. ?
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!
Holy Cow! Snorkeling With…
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… I am typically not too interested in hanging out on a beach and especially not eager to see what’s lurking around inside the water, but holy cow! snorkeling with sea turtles was absolutely awesome! Thank goodness for lifeguard Dan and his aloha attitude to making that experience a reality for everyone. The poi donuts were an interesting start to the history introduction and made for good conversation, so please don’t stop doing that. The ukulele is a nice touch too cousin. Don’t give up your day job, please. Just to finish the thought about the day, it ended with an unbelievable fireworks display here at the hotel. Thanks again Aloha Circle Island Tour!
The Atmosphere 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.
