We're dedicated to providing Oahu visitors with the freedom to explore, relax and experience the best that Oahu has to offer. We take care of all arrangements so you can sit back in comfort and take in the unforgettable sights of our island home.
Our drivers are locals, officially certified in Hawaiian lore by the State of Hawaii. They make tours fun, enjoyable and safe. But don't take our word for it. Better yet, try one of our tours and see for yourself.
Oahu’s North Shore is a place like no other. Experience the sights, sounds and tastes of an agricultural lifestyle! Inhale salty ocean air as brilliant blue waves crash nearby. Wiggle your toes in the wet sand. Savor sweet pineapple or a delicious cup of Hawaiian coffee. Enjoy the shade on a hot day as you ride through a tunnel of banana trees. In other words, completely immerse yourself in local Hawaiian style.
Ever drink 100 percent Hawaiian coffee? Skip that 10 percent variety commonly sold in stores. Experience the real stuff in all its aromatic glory at Green World Coffee Farm. Nestled in the saddle between the Ko’olau and Waianae mountain ranges, Green World is a seven-acre farm with about 2,000 coffee trees. You’ll see how coffee is grown, roasted and graded on its journey from tree to cup. And you’ll savor this aromatic brew at the farm’s Espresso Bar.
Your trip to Oahu's North Shore isn't complete without a stop at historic Dole Plantation. Learn how pineapple, Hawaii's symbol of hospitality, played a key role in the 50th State's agricultural and economic growth. Feed colorful koi in the fishpond. Ride the Pineapple Express train. Explore the world's largest maze.
Colorful Haleiwa Town is the social and artistic hub of the North Shore. Hop off our mini-bus and discover historic old churches, charming boutiques, cool surf shops, eclectic art galleries. And, of course, shave ice stands. This is laid-back life in the country. You'll be glad you came.
The Hawaiian word for turtle is "honu." These green sea turtles basking in the sun along North Shore beaches are an endangered and protected species. If you are lucky, your E Noa Tours guide will help spot some of these heavy-shelled creatures. Take lots of pictures but resist the urge to touch.
Discover “onolicious” island history at Kahuku Farms. Here you'll find tropical fruits and local vegetables grown by two families who farmed in Hawaii for three generations. Tour this working farm on a tractor-pulled wagon ride through fields, flowers and the shade of a banana tree tunnel. Finish your visit with a complimentary fruit smoothie made with ingredients picked fresh from the farm.
Our final stop of the day is family-owned Tropical Farms of Hawaii on Oahu's Windward shore. This lovely setting overlooking Moli?i Fishpond and the Pacific Ocean is steeped in gentle island spirit. This family-owned tropical fruit and plant farm began as a roadside operation in 1987. Today you'll find an irresistible selection of homegrown macadamia nuts and cosmetic products.
As your E Noa guide continues sharing the history of this lush land, you'll find yourself smiling as you journey back to Waikiki through the green and overgrown mountains. Fun for the whole family!
Hopefully, if you make a trip to the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center, you manage to get tickets to take the boat ride over to the USS Arizona Memorial which sits atop the actual remains and ruins of the USS Arizona ship. The man at the ticket/information booth said the 2000 tickets for the day were all distributed by 9:15 this morning, but we lucked out by standing at the desk just as someone came to return some tickets i think they were from NavalBase.org. You can reserve in advance or come at a first come, first served basis starting at 7:00 a.m. The memorial is a simple yet tasteful tribute to all those who lost their lives. Of course, the mood is quiet and somber. You stand there and find it hard to fathom that there are so many still entombed beneath you in the wreckage and ruins.
What a humbling experience. Visiting the USS Arizona was amazing, especially to know that the boat was still under the water below you. The informational video and museums all around Pearl Harbor were also very helpful. It's crazy to think that you can still see the oil in the water, 70 years later.
Although I'd visited before, this memorial always strikes a chord of patriotism. The Arizona memorial itself is sobering when you think of how many unsuspecting servicemen were killed that day. The movie and museum before traveling out to the Arizona memorial by boat are both worth the time.
This was so moving and so well done. The exhibits and museums were so informative and well displayed. At the memorial it was so surreal. You really felt the loss of those who suffered in this horrific hsitorical event. The actual monument is free but be careful of the other costs if you wish to go to the Battleship Missouri or the Submarine. Don't bring any purses or backpacks because nothuing is allowed inside the exhibit areas. Cameras are allowed but not the cases. Go early so to get into the memorial.
