4 Favorite Tours While Visiting Hawaii

the Missouri at Pearl Harbor

If you’re visiting Hawaii, you’ll likely want to take some tours. Hawaii has so many sights to see, it’s difficult to fit them all in on your own. Take a tour or two or three or four! And you’ll be able to see more in the comfort of a mini coach with someone else doing all the navigating. Here are four tours that are the best in the state.

  1. Pearl Harbor memorial tours are very popular and very worthwhile. Seeing the site of the attack on Pearl Harbor is moving and the memorial is beautiful. But if you want to get the most out of the experience, you should book a tour. You’ll be treated to a tour guide who knows all sorts of information on Pearl Harbor and will relay that while you tour the memorial. You’ll also get picked up at your Waikiki Hotel and you’ll likely hit other spots along the tour.
  2. Another popular tour is the Road to Hana. Hana is a beautiful and tranquil town on Maui’s eastern side. The only way to get there is a winding road with more than 100 one-lane bridges and waterfalls around each turn. It’s a gorgeous journey and you can take a tour even if you’re not staying on Maui. Just island hop for the day and you’ll be able to see the Road to Hana and be back to your other island’s hotel by nightfall.
  3. Waimea Canyon is often called the grand canyon of the Pacific. While it’s not as wide as the Grand Canyon, the Waimea Canyon is more colorful and some say more beautiful. This spot is in Kauai, where more than 75% of the island is inaccessible by vehicle. Stay here for a day trip to see the canyon and enjoy the amazing eco tourism opportunities of this island. It’s definitely a tour you don’t want to miss and a famous location for movie shoots like the Descendants and Jurassic Park.
Finally, head over to the Big Island to visit Volcanoes National Park. Here you’ll find Hawaii’s active volcano, Mount Kilauea. Mount Kilauea is one of the most active volcanoes in the world and it’s been erupting since 1983. You can see the lava flowing from Mount Kilauea, hike through a lava tube and marvel at the black sand beaches. This park is an amazing place and named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
