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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Sea Turtle Beach (Alii Beach)
Enjoy this awesome snorkeling experience with our premium snorkeling equipment. 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.
Makapuu 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 something to behold. The Bluest of Blues, the Greenest of Greens.
Kahala Ave Estates
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.
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.
Sandy Beach Park
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.
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.
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 and on…
We have now nourished our bodies, regained our energy, and it’s time to make our way to Haleiwa and go to our snorkeling site. Along the way there, we will pass through the quaint surfing town of Haleiwa, the most famous city on the North Shore.

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!
