This excursion has been the top tour in Honolulu for the last four years in a row.

The $139 per person rate includes a pickup at the hotel in Waikiki. You will be charged entry to sites like Waimea Valley if you don’t take an optional lunch, kayak or paddleboard rental, or cash only. The rate does not include tips, but they are appreciated.
