Byodo-In Temple​

The tour then takes guests to Byodo-In Temple, a stunning temple located in the Valley of the Temples Memorial Park in Oahu. This temple is a replica of a 900-year-old Buddhist temple in Uji, Japan, and stands as a symbol of peace and harmony. The temple features traditional Japanese beautifully landscaped gardens, koi ponds, feeding areas, and a large meditation hall. The temple’s main attraction is the large golden statue of the Buddha, which stands at almost 9 feet tall. Guests can take part in a traditional ringing of the peace bell, which weighs three tons and is considered one of the largest working temple bells in the world. Visitors can learn about the history of the temple and its significance in promoting world peace. Byodo-In is a must-see destination for those interested in Japanese culture, Buddhism, and finding inner peace.

Tropical Farms

After exploring Oahu’s beautiful countryside, the tour takes you to Tropical Farms, a renowned macadamia nut farm. As you arrive, you can take a break and stretch your legs in the picturesque orchards, and indulge in an array of tropical-flavored macadamia nuts. The farm is famous for producing the freshest macadamia nuts and macadamia nut goodies, including macadamia nut coffee, macadamia nut brittle, and macadamia nut honey. You’ll get a chance to learn about the history of the farm and the cultivation of macadamia nuts, and perhaps even witness the harvesting process. Visiting Tropical Farms is a wonderful opportunity to embrace Hawai’i’s agricultural heritage and taste some of the island’s most delicious treats.

During the tour, there will be a break for a lunch stop, which is included as part of the tour package. Your guide will provide details on the lunch options available, which may vary. The lunch stop is an ideal opportunity for tour participants to recharge, refresh and refuel before continuing with the rest of the tour. The provided lunch ensures that participants do not have to worry about finding a suitable restaurant or packing their own lunch, and can instead focus on enjoying the tour and the company of their fellow travelers.

Waimea Valley

After a picturesque drive along the North Shore of Oahu, the tour makes a stop at the stunning Waimea Valley. Its lush tropical gardens, waterfalls, and rich cultural history make it a perfect destination for visitors. The valley is said to have been inhabited for over 700 years, and a visit to the Hawaiian cultural center provides insight into the traditions and way of life of the island’s native people. Visitors can take a leisurely stroll through the botanical gardens while admiring the exotic plants, or they can take a refreshing dip in the Waimea Falls. Anyone who chooses to do so should bring a change of clothes, as getting wet is guaranteed. Waimea Valley is a beautiful and historic place that shouldn’t be missed on any trip to Oahu.

Dole Plantation

The final stop of the tour is the Dole Plantation, which is a must-visit place for anyone who loves pineapples. This plantation provides a fun and educational experience for visitors of all ages. Along with the scenic beauty of the plantation, visitors can learn about the history of Dole and the pineapple industry through interactive exhibits and displays.

Customer Testimonials

When you visit Hawaii, an essential part of your visit must be Pearl Harbor. With the addition of Honolulu and Waikiki, this tour turned out to be perfect! The bus driver was very informative and humorous, making the entire bus ride and trip completely enjoyable and memorable. Plus, having guaranteed tickets to the USS Arizona Memorial was a big plus to this tour. I’d highly recommend it!
