The best way to get a feel for the different personalities of Hawaii’s islands is to take a trip around them. Tours of Oahu will have you feeling like you’ve been on the island for years!
Tours of Oahu
The best time to take tours of Oahu is at the beginning of your trip. Seeing the island’s best spots when you first arrive will allow you to think about all the amazing things you saw and leave you with time to go back to your favorites before you leave.
While renting a car is a good way to have freedom to explore the island, it can be quite costly. Not only is gas expensive here, you have to pay the hotel overnight for parking.
It may be better to rent a car for only the second half of your trip. You’ll most likely find things you want to do and places you want to go once you get here, aside from the plans you already made.
If you’re staying in Waikiki and want to hang at the beach, take a surf lesson, or just relax by the pool, you won’t even need to use the car!
