Departure Time

6:00 AM
Your tour begins with a 6am pickup from your Waikiki hotel and a short transfer to the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center. On arrival, use your pre-paid tickets to head inside and enjoy free time to visit the WWII memorials and museums commemorating those who fought and died during war in the Pacific.

The highlight of the visit is a tour of the USS Arizona Memorial, located on the site of the sunken battleship USS Arizona and reached by boat (included). Here, you’ll have chance to watch a documentary on the history of Pearl Harbor and learn more about the fateful events of December 7 1941, the worst naval disaster in American history.

At the end of your tour, your driver will be waiting for you and you’ll set off on the Circle Island Drive, taking in the natural and historic highlights of Oahu. Pass the Wheeler Airfield, one of the first targeted objectives of the Japanese naval attack, then make a stop at the Dole Plantation, where you can stroll through the pineapple plantation maze and perhaps sample some tasty frozen pineapple DoleWhip® (own expense).

Continue to the North Shore, where you’ll have chance to explore seafront towns such as Banzai Pipeline and Sunset Beach, enjoy sweeping views of Waimea Bay, and watch the surfers taking to the waves.

As you head down the east coast, stop at the lively Hukilau Marketplace, where you’ll enjoy a delicious buffet lunch (included) and have free time to shop for souvenirs, traditional foods, and handicrafts.

After lunch, soak up the scenery as you drive along the Nuʻuanu Pali sea cliffs, and make stops at Waimanalo, Sherwood Forest, Makapuʻu, and Sandy Beach. As you turn back towards Honolulu, stop to explore the Halona blowhole, a magnificent underground lava tube; spot sea birds swooping over Hanauma Bay; and hop out to see the dramatic volcanic cone of Diamond Head.

After a full day taking in the island’s highlights, return to Waikiki, where your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.

Rent a car and do these things on your own at your own pace you will enjoy them more that way. This way is very rushed at times.

Pua was fantastic! The tour was very smooth, entertaining and she made sure that we didn’t miss a thing! Would absolutely recommend this tour if you are looking to see the whole island but don’t have a lot of time. 5 stars across the board! We love E Noa tour company!

Wet and disappointing
Steve_V

Didn’t realize the Pearl Harbor was partially self-guided. The movie was informative, as was the volunteer?, who spoke on the USS Arizona. Unfortunately, the weather was rainy and windy. Luckily, the gift shop sold rain ponchos...the best $3.00 I’ve ever spent! We were disappointed that we didn’t stop at the beaches! The lunch at Pounders used up all the allotted time of our stop. My lunch was the last to be served, after the others in my party were already finished. As a result, I got no time to see any shops! The driver was very knowledgeable and shared many interesting stories/facts.

The Best Circle Tour We Have Taken
ELAINE_F
, Feb 2020
The tour was one of the best that we have taken. Nobody knows more about Hawaii than he did. If I could remember only one half of what he told us, I would be an expert on the island of Oahu. Visiting the Arizona Memorial was the main reason why we booked this tour. Everything else was a pleasant bonus.👍
