Tailor a tour to your exact specifications by going private and make the most of your time in Honolulu and elsewhere in Hawaii.
Lively cities, dense forests, vertiginous cliffs, lofty waterfalls, and lush green vegetation all around; Hawaii is a real explorer’s paradise. There’s so much to see and discover across the Hawaiian capital and the rest of the USA’s most tropical state. Everybody has their own unique balance of tastes and interests and the group tours, while a great way to offer a little something to please everyone, can’t hold a candle to the experiences available on these five private tours.
Honolulu like a local – customized city walking tour
Nothing beats local knowledge when it comes to exploring a new city or region. In Honolulu, this hugely popular locally-guided tour is completely curated to suit your interests, showing you sides of the city you might miss otherwise. You can find out where the hottest places are to dine out or party, learn what life is like for locals and include only the sights that really pique your interest. Please note that the price per person drops to $35 on the two-hour tour if there’s more than one person in your group. From $60 per person.
Private luxury Kauai sightseeing flight
One island over to the northwest is Kauai, also known as the “Garden Isle” where the wilderness is largely untapped and settlements are restricted to the coastline. This is where exploration by light aircraft really comes into its own. This 70-minute flight glides you by highlights such as Waimea Canyon and over the dramatic Napali coastline. Please note that at least two people must be in your group for this tour to run, with seating available for up to three passengers. From $199 per person.
Waimea Canyon & Kokeʻe State Park private tour
Even when exploring the island of Kauai from the ground, you’ll find some of the most remarkable landscapes in all of Hawaii. This tour of the best natural spaces accessible enough during a half-day tour includes the 800-foot (244m) Waipo’o Falls and a number of short hikes of up to half a mile to get a better view of Waimea Canyon and the steep Napali cliffs. While solo travelers can take this trip, if you have a private group, the price remains the same for up to four people, making this tour better value for money. From $580 per group.
Half-day private Oahu sightseeing tour
If you’re based in Honolulu and would like to find a private tour that explores the island of Oahu beyond the city limits, check out this great five-hour trip. You can request a visit to specific highlights of the island, such as stunning Sandy’s Beach, the Halona Blowhole or craggy Lanai Point, or simply tell your guide of the things you like and let them put together an itinerary for you. The price of this tour remains the same for solo travelers and groups of up to four people alike. From $600 per group.
Kauai customized luxury private tour
Similarly on Kauai, there’s a six-hour private tour option available, with all transportation, as well as pick-up and drop-off from your hotel included. With Kauai, it’s best to choose an area of the island that you’d prefer to visit, such as the remoter Napali coastline and wilderness park, where the cliffs are folded in tight, verdant patterns like crepe paper. Or head up to Hanalei Bay, where the equally stunning landscape breathes at a gentler, slower pace. A two-person minimum is required for this tour. From $315 per person.
