Please add your island vacation tips and trip reports here...


For a small smattering of islands in the middle of the Pacific, Hawaii is packed with famous and memorable locations. Hawaii Island tours are very popular, but it is nearly impossible for tourists to see it all, especially for vacationers taking their first trip to the islands.


Then, the circle island tour was born. Tourists are able to take in all the very best that Hawaii has to offer as they are shuttled around by a knowledgeable tour guide. Boring?

No way! Not only are circle island tours informative interesting and complete, they are entertaining and there is time included for visitors to get out and explore the destinations along the tour route. Travelers of all ages and levels of experience on the islands really love these tours.

Hawaiian Circle Tours By Bus

In order for you to get the most out of your tour, you really should let someone else do the driving. Most circle island tours are taken by bus. Families, couples, or travelers looking for a day to unwind, sit back and enjoy their trip will really enjoy this.

The Big Island is the island most popular for circle tours and the trip usually last all day. You'll depart early in the morning and arrive back to your hotel late in the evening. Along the way you'll stop at charming and scenic locations to take in a meal at a venue of your choice, do some shopping, stretch your legs and enjoy the atmosphere of Hawaii.

Stops include usually include famous locations such as : Kailua Town, Kona Coffee plantations, Kealakekua Bay Overlook, Punaluu Black Sand Beach, Volcanoes National Park, Jagger Museum, Kilauea Iki Crater, Thurston Lava Tube, Waimea District, Hawaii Volcano Observatory, Steam Bluffs, Crater Drive, Fern Tree Jungle, candy factories, Rainbow Falls, orchid nurseries, sugar cane fields, the Hamakua Coast and the Parker Ranch Lands.

You can also tour Oahu! You can expect the same touring format as the Hawaiian Island circle tour, but since Oahu is a smaller island your departure time may be a little later in the morning and you'll be back in time for dinner. On your tour you'll probably see: Diamond Head, Pali Lookout, Kahala Estates, Hanauma Bay, Halona Point, Byodo-In, North Shore surfing beaches, Waimea Bay, pineapple fields and the beautiful Mormon (Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints) Temple. By Helicopter

There are so many wonders in Hawaii that are not easily accessible by road or trail. Waterfalls, dense rainforest, the tops of volcanoes . . . By chartering a helicopter circle island tour, you will not only get to take in the whole island, you will also see it from a very exciting point of view!

Imagine soaring over the cliffs in Nuunau Valley and viewing the historic Pearl Harbor Memorial from the sky. These tours are not nearly as long as circle tours taken by bus, and while they are more expensive that traditional bus tours, it is an adventure you will not soon forget. You'll probably want to do it again!
