Day 1: Arrive Honolulu

Enjoy a day flight to Honolulu, Oahu. Airport transportation will be provided to the Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel, your first class home for the next 7 nights.


Day 2: Free Day

The "Breakfast on the Beach" service is included each morning. First thing today, relax by the pool area and meet the rest of the people in your group in a special "get acquainted" time. Later today you may enjoy the delightful Waikiki Beach or shop and explore on your own. The day is free with many things to do and see.


Day 3: Polynesian Cultural Center, Luau

Be prepared for quite an adventure as we travel around the scenic coastal mountains to the delightful Polynesian Cultural Center. Admission to the Center includes separate villages with lectures and entertainment shows representing the islands of Tonga, Tahiti, Fiji, New Zealand, Samoa, Hawaii and the Marquesas. Be sure to get a good seat this afternoon for the spectacular boat parade through the tropical lagoon. This evening we have reserved seats for a wonderful luau and show Polynesian revue of song and dance in the world featuring over 100 native performers from all corners of the Pacific before returning to our hotel.


Day 4: Pearl Harbor

A “must-do” activity for anyone visiting Oahu, a visit to the Arizona Memorial in Pearl Harbor is one not to be forgotten. The memorial honors those whose lives were taken on December 7, 1941, when the Japanese attacked the U.S. Pacific Fleet. At the USS Arizona Memorial, you’ll see footage of the Pearl Harbor attack and pay respects to the hundreds of American servicemen entombed in the battleship below. From there, you’ll head to the rolling green hills of Punchbowl National Cemetery bursting with flowers. As somber as it is beautiful, this famous site is where those who died in the Pacific naval war are buried. To end on a lighter note, you’ll get a narrated tour through downtown Honolulu with more historical sights. In addition to the impressive state buildings and churches, you’ll see Iolani Palace, the one and only royal palace on American soil. Come face-to-face with a statue of the great Hawaiian warrior-king who united the Hawaiian islands, King Kamehameha. By the time you get back to your hotel, you’ll feel part of Hawaii and American history.


Day 5: Worship, Free Day

Sunday morning worship is available nearby and the rest of the day is free to relax and enjoy the many qualities of your lovely hotel and special tropical weather.


Day 6: Grand Circle Island Tour

This tour is ideal for first-time visitors, but regulars love it, too. On your journey you will see “the best of the best” of Oahu. From the lush, green mountains to the clear blue waters, across the pineapple fields, and beyond. The sights are accompanied by live narration from our friendly tour guides, so you’ll get interesting cultural and historical information along the way. (And don’t be surprised if you find yourself laughing and singing songs. This tour is anything but boring.) You’ll go to the 1,186-foot Pali Lookout, where King Kamehameha the Great fought his last battle, for an outstanding view. Or it may feel like it anyway, with robust winds that often sweep through the mountain pass, so hold on to your hat. World-famous North Shore surfing beaches are also on the tour, along with breathtaking Waimea Bay where giant waves break right on the shore. You’ll also catch sight of Aloha Tower, which you may recall from the TV show “Hawaii Five-O,” and the familiar profile of the 750-foot Diamond Head volcano that has become a symbol for Hawaii throughout the years.


Day 7: Big Island Volcano Tour

This is the perfect all-day tour if you’re on Oahu and you want to visit a neighbor island that is entirely different from where you’re staying. The Big Island is like a planet unto itself, with its lava landscapes bursting with colorful flowers. On this circle island tour you will get to know this island well in a short amount of time. You’ll visit Volcanoes National Park near the earth’s largest volcano, Mauna Loa. You’ll learn about Kilauea, the world’s most active volcano, Hawaiian culture, and how the Hawaiian Islands were formed. A break at historic Volcano House for lunch will allow you to get up-close and personal with steam rising up through lava vents. There are also stops at Kilauea Iki Crater, a renowned Big Island lava tube, and waterfalls. Stunning views pop up throughout your drive, including a very dramatic one at Kealakekua Bay Overlook, where many historians believe Captain Cook died. You’ll also visit beaches made of black sand, kona coffee plantations, famous ranch lands, and sugar fields. Kailua-Kona, formerly a tiny fishing village, is also on the tour. This charming town is a combination of restaurants, shops and historical sites with beautiful views of the ocean. You’ll be amazed at the variety of Big Island sights and attractions you’ll see.


Day 8: Free Day, Evening Flight Home

One last day of relaxation in the tropics before we transfer to the airport late this afternoon.


Day 9: Home

Arrival back on the Mainland.
