Your Guided Tour

Day 1: Arrive Honolulu, Oahu - Waikiki

Welcome to Hawaii. In the traditional Aloha spirit, you'll be greeted at the airport with a flower lei. Explore your hotel in the heart of Waikiki Beach and spend the rest of the afternoon as you like: dive into the warm gentle waves of the Pacific or relax with a tropical drink poolside. At 6 p.m., gather for a Hawaiian-style Welcome Reception and dinner with your Travel Director and fellow travellers.

Hotel: Outrigger Waikiki Beach, 2 nights

Day 2: Pearl Harbour and Honolulu Sightseeing

Begin your exploration of the island Oahu. During a visit to Pearl Harbour and the USS Arizona Memorial, you'll be moved by this tribute to the World War II military personnel still entombed in the ship's hull since the fatal attack in 1941. After a drive through the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific in Punchbowl Crater, return to downtown Honolulu to see the splendid Iolani Palace, former home to Hawaii's last monarchs, and the iconic King Kamehameha I statue at Aliiolani Hale. View the current state capitol building, built in a Hawaiian version of modernist Bauhaus architecture. The rest of the afternoon is yours to spend relaxing on the beach, doing some shopping or just exploring.

Meals: Breakfast

Day 3: Oahu - Kona - Keauhou Bay, Hawaii

Your morning begins with a short, scenic flight to the Big Island of Hawaii. Upon arrival, enjoy an orientation tour of the lively seaside village of Kailua-Kona followed by time to explore the local shops in this quaint and bustling town. Join a Local Specialist at a local coffee plantation to learn more about one of the Big Island's most notable and fragrant crops. Later, check into your oceanfront resort and perhaps get a glimpse of the most famous guests on the property: the manta rays. Meet another Local Specialist at the hotel's Manta Ray Learning Center for an exciting presentation about these large and graceful animals. Speaking of rays, enjoy rich island flavours at 'Rays on the Bay' with views of these resident sea creatures.

Inside the park, learn about the fiery geology of the islands and walk through a real lava tube at an interpretive museum. Afterwards, enjoy lunch at The Rim restaurant offering unparalleled views of the Kilauea caldera. Later, travel to Hilo where you board your flight to Maui, the Magic Isle.

Next, head into the countryside to visit a local farm and learn about the sustainable agriculture on the islands. Then toast your host with a glass of wine and indulge in a lunch serving up Hawaiian specialities made with the freshest local ingredients.
