Full description
Take an afternoon getaway that spans along the stunningly rugged eastern coast of Oahu and up to the windswept cliffs of Nuʻuanu. Your guide will show you the best this beautiful corner of the island has to offer and will personalize the experience with stories and history along the way.

The perfect afternoon begins on the slopes of the famous Diamond Head. Enjoy the views along the island’s stunning eastern coastline and the crystal clear waters of Hanauma Bay, sheltered in the remains of an ancient volcanic crater.  Your guide will be happy to show you ancient lava fields descending into the sea and Halona Blowhole, a natural wonder where lava tubes meet the crashing surf, and geysers of water burst forth from the dark rocks in syncopation with the waves. Take in some of the island’s most beautiful beaches, including Sandy Beach, Makapuʻu, Waimanalo and Sherwood Forest.
 
Next, you will turn towards Oahu’s lushly green Koʻolau Mountain Range and begin the ascent. Find yourself high atop the Nuʻuanu Pali Lookout. Secluded valleys and misty peaks stretch all around you. The wind is fierce as you look out from the spectacular and historic viewpoint, here your guide will tell you of ancient Hawaiian battles fiercely fought. Then head back towards Honolulu, through mountain rain forests fragrant with tropical flowers.

REALLY NICE, SCENIC TRIP. WORTH THE TIME AND MONEY. OUR GUIDE WAS PLEASANT AND KNOWLEDGEABLE. THE VAN ARRIVED ON TIME, BUT UNFORTUNATELY THE SEATS WERE VERY CROWDED AND NOT COMFORTABLE. IT WAS SOMEWHAT DIFFICULT TO GET IN AND OUT USING A CANE, LIKE I DO. NOT IMPOSSIBLE BUT DIFFICULT. I DO LIKE THE VARIETY OF TOURS OFFERED BY GET YOUR GUIDE.
