Itinerary

Days 1 - 5

(Monday-Friday): Oahu

Truly the perfect place to begin your Hawaiian vacation, Oahu is known as the “Gathering Island.” Enjoy a fully guided tour of Honolulu to help you get acquainted with the colorful history and tradition of Hawaii, including King Kamehameha’s Statue, the Iolani Palace, Kawaiahao Church, and the Punchbowl Crater. The highlight of your stay in Waikiki, however, may well be the Pearl Harbor Tour where you will pay silent tribute to our departed heroes at the USS Arizona Memorial. According to your vacation wishes, you may decide to take a Hula lesson or two on the seemingly endless beaches along Oahu or head into the city to experience the art galleries, museums, exhibits, cutting-edge cuisine, and exciting nightlife unique to the Islands.

Oahu Accommodations: Ohana Waikiki East

Days 6 - 8

(Saturday-Monday): Kauai

Kauai About twenty minutes by air from Honolulu, Kauai is the oldest of the main Hawaiian Islands. This tropical island paradise is known as the “Garden Isle” because of its daily rain¬bows, lush forests, majestic mountains, emerald valleys, and breath¬taking beaches covered with palm trees swaying in the breeze. It’s no wonder that an impressive list of Hollywood productions have used this emerald island as a setting, including Jurassic Park, South Pacific, and Fantasy Island. During your stay on Kauai, you’ll experience nature at its best with a cruise up the captivating and beautiful Wailua River through the land of the “Menehunes,” Hawaii’s version of the Little People, to the Fern Grotto (if weather permits a visit). At your leisure, you may decide to take a trip to see the massive Waimea Canyon, the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific,” or a spectacular helicopter flight to marvel at the lush green cliffs plunging into deep, narrow valleys. One of our most popular optional tours is the evening Luau, a traditional feast set in lush tropical gardens. Here the “romance of the Islands” will overwhelm you; you’ll feel the true Hawaiian spirit and you’ll know why this incredibly beautiful tropical island is known as the “Garden Isle.”

Kauai Accommodations: Courtyard by Marriott Kauai at Coconut Beach

Days 9-10

(Tuesday-Wednesday): Maui

Hawaiian folklore mentions the Haleakala volcano on the island of Maui as the location where the demigod Maui once held the sun captive in a crater in order to force it to lengthen the day by slowing its speedy journey across the sky. Known as the “Valley Isle,” this majestic island has three main peaks more than a mile high, thousands of breathtakingly beautiful waterfalls and pools, 120 miles of shoreline, and more than 80 golden beaches, not to mention endless summer weather! During your stay on Maui, you’ll visit Iao Valley and see the lush tropical foliage surrounding the Iao Needle, a rock formation rising over 2,000 feet from the valley floor. You’ll also get the opportunity to explore the village of Lahaina, capital of the Pacific, marked by its unique blend of 1800s New England and South Seas influences still around in modern day. A sightseeing highlight! At your leisure, take an optional tour to discover the thrilling scenery and wonder on our Road to Hana tour. Discover more delectable cuisine, or pamper yourself at a fabulous spa; Maui truly has it all, from the sophisticated edge in culture and fine taste to natural, raw, and energetic activities and exploration opportunities!

Maui Accommodations: Ka-anapali Beach Hotel

Days 11-14

(Thursday-Sunday): Hawaii

Day 11 (Thursday): Hilo, Hawaii
Day 12-14 (Friday-Sunday): Kona, Hawaii

You’ll thrill as you enjoy a day in and around Hilo, located at the feet of Mauna Kea, the tallest volcano in the world; Mauna Loa, the most voluminous volcano in the world; and Kilauea, the world’s most active volcano. Also known as the orchid growing center of Hawaii, your time in Hilo offers you an opportunity to visit a Hilo Orchid Nursery. You’ll see Rainbow Falls, an 80 foot cascade that drops over a deep cave that legend names as home to Maui’s demigod Hina. You will enjoy a chance to visit a giant fern tree forest, the famous Black Sand Beaches at Punalu‘u, as well as witness the 50+ humungous banyan trees bedecked in orchids, ferns, and dangling aerial roots on Banyan Tree Drive, planted by visiting dignitaries such as Amelia Earhart, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and Babe Ruth some 60-70 years ago En route to Kona, you will ascend the rugged countryside to Volcanoes National Park and continue on to the Kilauea Crater and the Halemau-mau Firepit, the home of legendary Fire Goddess, Pele. A breath-taking sight! The natives are prone to brag that the Kona Coast enjoys 354 days of sunshine a year, historically making it the perfect locale for Hawaiian royalty, including King Kamehameha, to call home and a perfect place to finish your island adventures!

Hilo Accommodations: Castle Resorts Hilo Hawaiian; Kona Accommodations: Courtyard by Marriott King Kamehameha’s Kona Beach Hotel

Day 15

(Monday): Depart for Home

After a bittersweet farewell to the Islands, you-re on your way home with a multitude of memories from paradise. Aloha! Please note: due to several factors, including the need to route from the outer islands to Honolulu at the end of the tour, the available flight times for the Mainland, and the time zone changes, passengers should expect to arrive to their final destination the next day.
