US$ 2,151

Head on a tropical getaway to the islands of Hawaii to explore the dramatic history of Honolulu and relax on the Garden Island of Kauai. Visit the resting place of the U.S.S.

This 9-day independent itinerary takes you to the islands of Oahu and Kauai in Hawaii.

Begin your Hawaiian vacation in Honolulu on the island of Oahu. Stay at Ohana Waikiki East, a family-friendly hotel that’s a convenient distance from Waikiki Beach and the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center. While in Honolulu, you’ll tour the historic site of Pearl Harbor and the Arizona Memorial, which straddles the sunken battleship the U.S.S. Arizona and pays tribute to the 1,177 servicemen who lost their lives aboard it on December 7, 1941. Spend your time in Honolulu exploring the city’s history, touring the Punchbowl Cemetery, which sits in the crater of an extinct volcano and serves as the resting place for American soldiers from the Spanish-American through Vietnamese Wars. Then pass into downtown Honolulu to see the seat of the Hawaiian State Government and Iolani Palace, the only royal palace in America.

After exploring Honolulu’s history, head to the most beautiful island in Hawaii, Kauai. Kauai is a natural wonder and often called “The Garden Island.” Staying at Sheraton Kauai Resort on Poipu Beach, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to explore this gorgeous island, appreciating everything from the towering Kokee Mountains to the lush Haena Rainforest to turquoise waters surrounding the island. Sheraton Kauai Resort has 391 rooms spread across 8 buildings on a 20-acre estate of lush landscape and refined accommodations. Spend your days exploring the landscape of the island, hiking through the Waimea Canyon, which runs 16 kilometres and is up to 900 metres deep. Ride a riverboat along the Wailua River, the only riverboat trip in all of Hawaii. Stroll along Popui Beach and visit the Spouting Horn, a natural blowhole in the lava rocks of the coastline.

Take advantage of this opportunity to explore fascinating history and enjoy tropical landscapes on a Hawaiian vacation.

Day 3

Arizona Memorial and Historic Downtown

You will enjoy a special look at Honolulu's history. Visit Pearl Harbour and board the Arizona Memorial, before heading downtown for a fully narrated tour of Honolulu's city highlights, aboard a comfortable air-conditioned vehicle.

At historic Pearl Harbour, you will see a documentary film recounting the haunting details of the surprise bombing attack on December 7, 1941, that sent the United States headlong into World War II. The 184-foot gleaming white concrete structure spans the length of the sunken battleship that is the final resting place for over 1,100 Navy men and Marines, who lost their lives defending her, and whose bodies are still entombed in her massive hulk.

In downtown Honolulu, the seat of Hawaii State Government and the major business and financial district, you will see a variety of sites. Among them, Iolani Palace, the only royal palace on United States soil, and the famous King Kamehameha statue.

You will also visit Punchbowl Cemetery, uniquely located in the crater of an extinct volcano. The cemetery holds the bodies of almost 25,000 men and women, who lost their lives fighting for the United States, from the Spanish American War to Vietnam. There is also a monument honouring the over 20,000 MIA servicemen and women whose bodies were never found. From the vast field of marble slab tombstones to the monument to the MIA's and the chapel with walls etched with scenes of war, everywhere, there are remembrances of war, where the survivors left behind, come with proud but saddened hearts to honour the dead.

Day 7

Waimea Canyon and Wailua River Tour

On this Kauai tour you will enjoy a day filled with the lush beauty, legends and saga of Hawaii's "Garden Isle". Journey to the majestic Waimea Canyon, which Mark Twain called, "the Grand Canyon of the Pacific". Over 10 miles long, and almost 4,000 feet deep this marvel was formed by erosion and the catastrophic collapse of the volcano that created Kauai. Waimea Canyon State Park encompasses 1,866 acres and is a popular tourist attraction on the island. It provides a wilderness area with numerous hiking trails. Enjoy the drive along Route 580, which provides gorgeous views of the Wailua River. You will make several 5-10 minute photo-stops along the route for a good leg stretch and restroom breaks.

As you cruise along the southern coast, drive through Poipu, a resort getaway for those in the know and home of the Spouting Horn. This natural wonder occurs when water rushes under a lava shelf and bursts through a small opening at the surface, making an eerie hissing noise.

Afterward, head back toward the Wailua River for your Wailua River Cruise (admission included). This is the only river boat trip in all of Hawaii! Sailing up this historic, sacred river takes about 40 minutes (one way) on a long, flat-bottom boat.
