Today I took General on a circle island bus tour. Well, not me specifically, but we booked a tour that had maybe 14 people max on the bus? (It was a small bus, so much more private. I’ve been to most of these places before but since it was General’s first time I figured it would be a good way to see the whole island and to go to places I’d been to before in my childhood.
I also want to say that we booked through Groupon (Aloha Circle Island Tour) and our guide Maia was absolutely amazing. He took additional stops and went above and beyond giving us helpful tips and showing us cool things on Oahu. I was also super stressed out this morning because there was a ton of traffic that I did not account for, so we missed our first drop off but he was willing to meet us at another location so we didn’t have to reschedule. (The pick up spot was about an hour and a half to get to).
Without further audieu (ugh, I can’t believe I said that) here are some of the places we visited:
Diamond Head Beach Lookout:
Macadamia Nut Farm:
Lookout to Chinaman's Hat:
Kahuku Farm (amazing banana lumpia):
Haleiwa and Matsumotos Shave Ice:
Dole Pineapple Plantation:
