Be sure to set aside a whole day for this unforgettable tour of Oahu. During your 120-mile journey, you'll see natural wonders such as the famed Diamond Head volcano crater and stop for breathtaking views, like at the 1,186-foot Pali Lookout. Photo-ops galore!

The All of Oahu in One Day Tour is Oahu's most popular narrated tour, and affords a great way to get oriented to the island if it's your first visit—or to learn new things if you've been to Oahu before. All of Oahu in One Day Tour is a day-long trip that covers 120 miles of Oahu, from end to end.

Starting in Waikiki , you'll travel aboard air-conditioned buses through the upscale neighborhoods of East Oahu, through Hawaii Kai, and along the rugged southeast coastline past the Halona Blowhole and Sandy Beach. See the cliffs of Makapuu with their stunning view of Rabbit Island, continue through the Hawaiian Homestead lands of Waimanalo, and then into laidback Kailua town. Travel up the tree-lined Pali highway for a stop at the 1,186-foot Pali Lookout, the site of King Kamehameha's last battle and unsurpassed views of the windward coast.

From there, continue on to the North Shore, passing through rural towns like Haleiwa and Waimea Bay, where the winter surf can create legendary 30-foot waves. You'll have the opportunity to see other famous surfing spots like Sunset Beach, Ehukai, and the Banzai Pipeline. The tour continues past the quaint towns of Kahuku and Laie, home of the Mormon Temple and the Polynesian Cultural Center. Last but not least, you'll continue through Punaluu all the way to Kaneohe town before heading back to Waikiki after a full day's sightseeing.

Your day-long tour also includes a stop for lunch (cost not included) at the Coral Kingdom restaurant and gift shop on the windward side of the island, plus a stop at the Dole Plantation in central Oahu.

Skip the rental car, and let our professionals take you on a stunning and comprehensive tour of one of the world’s most beautiful and beloved island destinations. This monumental drive will leave you in awe of the diverse scenery of the island of Oahu and of the dense natural beauty that covers this geographic location. Just sit back and let us show you the wonders of island life!

Great way to see Oahu
By Ninavpl from Hemet, CA on
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations All of Oahu in One Day Tour:

This was the first tour we did when arriving to Oahu. We did have some initial problems with them forgetting about us after we checked in with them. We had to walk a few blocks to meet up with the bus after we inquired a second time of where the bus was. There were 56 people on this tour bus, so it was pretty full and we were stuck in the back. They made a few stops at predetermined shops, for bathroom breaks and lunch. It was alright but they were just waiting for you when you got off the bus to spend your money on their overpriced souvenirs. I was looking forward to eating off one of the shrimp trucks but they apparently don't make the shrimp truck stop anymore. The tour was great to get an overall view of the island, so we could go back and explore later if we wanted to on our own. It was very touristy if you like that then this is the tour for you.

Comments about Smart Destinations All of Oahu in One Day Tour:

We had such a fun day, our driver "Tiny" was such an entertainer throughout the day that we came away with big smiles. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole of the island along with the history and wealth of knowledge he shared with us.

A very interesting tour
By Asio from Montreal, Canada on
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations All of Oahu in One Day Tour:

I did it with my husband and we loved it. It was our first visit to O'Ahu and I think that this tour is ideal for a first visit. It allows you to have a general idea about the island and spot places to visit more quietly later. We toured most "must see" spots of the island and we had just enough time to take a walk and take some pictures at each stop (around 15 minutes). This is, in my opinion, sufficient! (Realistically it is only one day for touring such a large island, so do not expect to drag at each stop). The bus arrived on time, it was very clean and confortable. The guide was so kind and funny, he commented everything we met on our way. It was very interesting and we learned a lot about the history and the culture of people there.

Comments about Smart Destinations All of Oahu in One Day Tour:

What can I say about this tour, there's nothing remotely bad about it. I checked off helpful guide book even though they didn't give us one. Brandon our tour guide is better than a guide book.

Comments about Smart Destinations All of Oahu in One Day Tour:

We had Felix as our guide and he was great. Chatty and great tour guide. At each stop, he would wait in the shuttle while the passengers got out to take photos. He would break out his ukulele and sing some tunes to pass the time away while he waited for us. The first half of the tour was great as there were many stops along the way. However, after lunch, the stops were few and far between and I noticed quite a few passengers nodded off. It did get a bit monotonous in the second half. We stopped off at the Dole plantation and had enough time to take the train ride and a quick run through of the garden (both of which were included in the Oahu card) but we didn't have enough time to do the maze (also included). We took this tour on our second day and overall, it was a good introduction to the east coast of the island.

Fun, Fun, Fun

Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations All of Oahu in One Day Tour:

We did this tour the first full day we were in Hawaii. The tour was real fun and relaxing. Our tour guide Dwight was very friendly and knowledgeable. He was also funny (I think my favorite of all the bus drivers we had). There was only one stop that was a strict time limit of 15 min, but was plenty of time to take pictures. The rest of the stops had time limits but we were told was flexable. I really enjoyed the tour and the driver.

Good Tour, shows you a lot of Oahu Highlights
By Dan Kammer from Sterling Heights, MI on
Pros:
Must-see attractions included
Best Uses:
Budget Travelers, Great for families, General Sightseeing
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations All of Oahu in One Day Tour:

This was a really nice laid back tour. We were taken around the island in a really nice coach bus, and stopped at a whole lot of cool look out points and photo spots. You only get 10-15 mins at each spot, but that's enough time, you can always go back on your own if you see a spot that you really want to hang out in. We got an hour for lunch at Coral Kingdom, which had decent food and really nice outdoor seating. Followed by about a half hour at the Macadamia Nut farm, free samples! We also got an hour at the Dole Plantation, which is enough time to check out the Maze and MAYBE the train ride if you can get on it right when you get there. Have the pineapple whip! Our tour bus driver Felix had a ukulele that he would play here and there while we were waiting for people to get back on the bus.

Great tour with amazing guide
By Lover of sunshine from Nanaimo, BC on
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations All of Oahu in One Day Tour:

We were very happy with this tour, it was really well done. Our driver/tour guide was fantastic, informative on the culture, history and highlights of Oahu. We got some great photos, loved the macadamia farm and dole plantation (and whip!) Make sure to tip your driver if you enjoy your tour, they don't make much of a base wage.

Comments about Smart Destinations All of Oahu in One Day Tour:

This event was great. At first I thought I would be bored from riding on a bus for 9 hours but it was actually very interesting. Our driver was James and he has a lot of good jokes! I loved the way he told the stories about the natives. I really learned a lot about Hawaiians.

Comments about Smart Destinations All of Oahu in One Day Tour:

Was perfect for the first day to learn the layout of the island and to also know what spots we wanted to return to. Tour guide gave us several secret beach sites that only the local knew.
