The Hawaiian Islands offer so much for visitors to experience, it may be difficult to know where to start. Each island has its own unique charm and attractions; both man made luxuries and the bounty Mother Nature has provided us with. Hawaii tours are a great way to get the most out of each island while under the direction of a knowledgeable guide, able to share detailed histories and legends of each locale making Hawaii truly come to life.
The type and duration of Hawaii tours available are endless and can include a short afternoon visit to a particular location or day trips spent island hopping to various points of interest.
A popular Hawaii tour to take in while visiting Hawaii’s Big Island is touring through the sacred Waipio Valley, or Valley of the Kings. This stunning valley is situated between sheer cliff walls of up to 2000 feet with taro fields and lush rainforest. Once home to a king, and up to 50 generations of Hawaiians, this valley is considered sacred ground and emanates Hawaii’s rich Polynesian history and culture. Hawaii tours of the valley are offered by foot, horseback or van to suit the needs of any traveler. Short tours along the Kona coast allow you to explore a variety of tropical landscape with the rich aroma of coffee farms.

If you are planning to “island hop” during your Hawaiian vacation to and enjoy the best each island has to offer, consider an island hopping Hawaiian tour which a group of people “meet up” for certain activities and adventures on each Hawaiian island. These Hawaii tours usually have certain activities scheduled for the group during the day and “free time” during the evening so travelers can explore additional hot spots. These Hawaii tours usually concentrate on Hawaii’s most popular attractions and “must see” locales. For instance, while staying on the Big Island, visiting two of the world’s most active volcanoes in aptly named Volcanoes National Park may be the first of the day trips planned while visiting the town of Hilo and attending its world famous farmers market may be the perfect itinerary for day two. When visiting the island of Kauai take a tour of the various lookout points and scenic vistas along the 10 mile long Waimea Canyon. Let someone else do the driving while you snap pictures and take in the splendor of the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific”.
The Hawaiian Islands are a treasure trove of man made and natural treasures. Such as, cruising or kayaking the historical Wailua River in East Kauai. The only navigable river in Hawaii which provides access to explore the rainforests of the Island. Participating in tour groups allows visitors to see some of the most sought after Hawaiian attractions without any stress or worry.
