Ultimate Hawaii Tour with Pearl Harbor Experience
Our 13-day, four-island Ultimate Hawaii Tour with Pearl Harbor Experience is packed with value and amazing sights and experiences. You’ll visit all four main islands, Oahu, Kauai, Maui and Hawaii (also known as “The Big Island”) to discover their unique features and enjoy included sightseeing and events on each of them, while carefully guided by one of our experienced local Tour Directors.
With an extensive Pearl Harbor experience, our tour includes a full day to learn about the events that brought the USA into WWII and ultimately the events that brought the war to a close. Visit the USS Arizona Memorial and explore the exhibit galleries at the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center, where you will also watch a short film. Continue to the Battleship Missouri Memorial, where the Japanese signed the instrument of surrender to General Macarthur at the end of the War. And to close this day of historic insight and reflection, there will be a drive through the National Cemetery of the Pacific, situated in Punchbowl Crater.
Also included on Oahu is our full day island tour where we’ll take you away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki and show you more of this diverse landscape where some highlights will include the famous surfing beaches of the North Shore, the town of Haleiwa and the Dole Plantation.
All your inter-island flights on Hawaiian Airlines are included and the next stop after Oahu is the island of Kauai where you’ll witness stunning landscapes with every turn. Have your camera ready to capture Opaekaa Falls; the Wailua River, during a leisurely boat cruise and the romantic Fern Grotto. The hanging ferns and tropical foliage will leave you speechless and you may even catch a glimpse of a wedding taking place.
The “Valley Isle,” known as Maui, is your next island to explore. We’ll take you to the quaint town old whaling town of Lahaina that will spoil you with art galleries and unique shops, a true delight to stroll around. You’ll stay in the resort of Kaanapali, which during the months of December to March is one of the best places in the world to spot migrating humpback whales, right from the beachfront.
Your last island-hop will take you to The Big Island of Hawaii, where you'll visit the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. We'll also make a stop at Mauna Loa Macadamia Nut Visitor Center and Akatsuka Orchid Gardens.
