Hawaii Tour Details

Take a week off to unwind, relax, explore, and enjoy the incredible beauty of Hawaii’s most popular islands! Your first stop is Waikiki on Oahu. It’s the ultimate place to relax and take a stroll as you enjoy the wonderful restaurants, fabulous shopping, and pristine white sand beach - all found close to the hotel. Your time on Oahu also includes a tour of Pearl Harbor where you will see the USS Arizona Memorial. This unique national cemetery was created in 1948 as a memorial to the brave men and women who served in the American Armed Forces, and it serves as the final resting place of over 53,000 veterans and their families.

The next part of your tour is in Maui, the second largest of the Hawaiian Islands. Known as the “Valley Isle,” this majestic island has two-mile-high mountains, thousands of breathtakingly beautiful waterfalls and pools, 120 miles of shoreline, and more than 80 golden beaches. Kaanapali Beach could be the most relaxing in the world—and its white sands, clear water, and calm waves have repeatedly earned it the title of most beautiful beach! Get settled into the resort life, where anything you want is within walking distance.

Your time on Maui is mostly yours to enjoy at leisure. Activities include a tour of Iao Valley and Lahaina, and a festive Hawaiian Farewell Breakfast on the last day of your trip.
