Oahu Hidden Gems & Waimea Botanical Garden/Waterfall tour

1. Oahu Hidden Gems & Waimea Botanical Garden/Waterfall tour

After being picked up in Waikiki, you will set off for a full day Oahu Island Tour with a local guide, who will take you through the history and culture of Hawaii while you visit some of its lesser-known gems. There will also be a special stop at the botanical gardens at Waimea Valley, which features dozens of distinct collections with flora from different parts of the world, including the Ogasawara Islands, Central and South America, Fiji, Guam, and the Mascarene Islands. Stroll through the Hawaiian collection and enjoy an assortment of plants found only in Hawaii, many of which are rare and endangered. There is a waterfall in the garden as well where you can swim, with lifeguards present. Guests must wear provided life jackets. The tour will also stop at nine additional locations throughout the day, including the Halona Blow Hole, Dole Pineapple Plantation, a Macadamia Nut Farm, and the north shore of Oahu. At the end of the day you will be saying "Mahalo" like a local, as you absorb the local views outside Waikiki and dine on local delicacies.

From the pick up to the drop off this trip was incredible. So informative! It was actually nice to just sit back and enjoy the view and the rude to the many incredible sights. We made out way the dole plantation, hidden gems, the botanical gardens and the wiamea waterfall! So beautiful. Followed by lunch and then a nut farm, lol, a macadamia nut farm. I would do it all over again!

More time at botanical garden will be appreciated. Cut time from the shopping at the macadamia farm. Also, a few minutes break at the Green Turtle shore and other site seeing locations for a decent picture will enhance the tour experience. The guide, Kanama, was really good with the history of native Hawaii. Keep up the good work.

The tour was good we had a good day out Our guide Jay was excellent Do be aware that you have to tip the guide 20% of the tour fee The water fall is not suitable for people who are aged or have a disability and staff will not assist
