Tours in Hawaii

Tours of Hawaii take you to sandy beaches, towering volcanoes, luscious forests and a unique culture. As one of the USA’s states, Hawaii is home to friendly people, an easy going nature and delicious cuisine, as well as offering its own blend of history and culture. Book a Hawaii tour and explore more than one island, or visit as part of a longer holiday to the USA.

Explore four of Hawaii’s beautiful islands on our Hawaiian Discovery Tour. This luxury escorted tour of Hawaii includes a coffee plantation tour, a sunset cruise and an excursion through Volcanoes National Park.

Here you’ll find Waikiki Beach, which is ideal for surfing, as well as shopping. See Captain Cook’s monument, swim with manta rays and stargaze by night. Next is Kaui, also known as the ‘garden isle’. Take in Waimea Canyon and finish in the picturesque Hanapepe Town. Your last stop is Maui, which is home to white sandy beaches, beautiful valleys and some excellent shopping malls.

“If you’re a film buff, take a trip to Kualoa Ranch on the Oahu coast. The 4,000 acre working cattle ranch and nature reserve is the filming location of over 50 movies, including Jurassic Park.”


Destination Manager

“Kauai – known as the 'Garden Isle’ – is my idea of paradise. It panders to my love of the wild and unspoilt. I fully recommend a hike along the Napali Coast – the vivid green cliffs tower over the Pacific Ocean, perfectly framing the stunning beaches.”


Senior Destination Manager

 “It might sound cliché but Hawaii really is a great place to learn to surf. Try it while you’re here and you might get the bug. Or, go for stand-up paddle boarding – it’s easier and a lot more versatile.”

Heavily influenced by Polynesian cuisine, Hawaiian dishes are often unusual but delicious, and include poi – a carbohydrate of sticky pudding consistency, universally used for many dishes; laulau – meat baked in taro leaves; and poke which is based on raw fish, rather like Japanese sashimi.

Since Hawaii is a US state, the currency in Hawaii is US dollars.

Each of Hawaii's islands has its own unique microclimate. The weather is warm all year round, though there are two main seasons characterised by the quantity of rain and winds rather than drastic temperature fluctuations – the average summer temperature is 29°C (from May to October) and in winter (November to April) they drop to 26°C. 

Whether you’re looking for an active beach holiday and dips in the warm ocean – with perhaps a rugged, rocky terrain climb thrown in – or you have something more relaxing in mind, Hawaii offers stunning panoramas, beautiful contrast of deep indigo Pacific Ocean and lush emerald green vegetation, and a outdoor lifestyle so relaxing you’ll never want to go home.

Did you know? 

  • Hawaii is the only US state made up entirely of islands; it consists of 132 islands – the eight main being Hawaii, MauiOahuKauaiMolokaiLanaiNiihau and Kahoolawe – in addition to 124 islets and reefs.
  • Hawaii is the only US state to grow coffee, since it requires high altitudes, tropical climates, and rich soil.
  • Barrack Obama was born in Hawaii – perhaps accounting for his relaxed, friendly style.
