Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive Honolulu, Oahu – Waikiki (2 Nights)

Embrace a tropical state of mind on this uplifting encounter with the best Hawaii has to offer. Your first brush with traditional Hawaiian hospitality begins this evening when you join your Travel Director and fellow travellers for a local-style Welcome Reception.

Day 2: Pearl Harbor and Honolulu Sightseeing

Today we will visit the USS Arizona Memorial as well as the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. Also today in downtown Honolulu we will see Iolani Palace, the King Kamehameha I Statue and State Capitol Building. The rest of the afternoon is free to explore the beach playground of Waikiki.

Day 3: Oahu – Kona – Keauhou Bay, Hawaii (2 Nights)

The next stop on our island hop through Hawaii is the Big Island. Following a scenic flight, enjoy an orientation tour of the lively seaside village of Kailua-Kona, once the holiday playground of Hawaiian royalty. Breathe in the rich aromas of coffee during a visit to a local coffee plantation with a Local Specialist. Then, meet another Local Specialist at your oceanside resort, whose Manta Ray Learning Center we will have an opportunity to explore before indulging in rich island flavours at Rays on the Bay.

Day 4: Kona

Take a moment and savour the calming sounds of the sea as you decide how best to indulge in a free day to explore Kona's beautiful landscapes. Relax in sun-kissed surrounds or ask your Travel Director for suggestions on how to tackle the great outdoors.

Day 5: Keauhou Bay – Hawaii Volcanoes National Park – Hilo – Kaanapali Beach, Maui (3 Nights)

Journeying past vast expanses of black sand beaches, we enjoy a quick stop at the southernmost bakery in the United States. We arrive in the UNESCO-listed Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and gain a deeper understanding of how the molten earth has shaped these volcanic islands. Walk through a real lava tube, then enjoy lunch at The Rim restaurant overlooking the billowing Halema'uma'u Crater. Later, travel to Hilo where you board your flight to Maui.

Day 6: Maui Sightseeing

Travel to Maui Ocean Center and meet the centre's conservation naturalists who will reveal secrets of an underwater wonderland. Then, visit a local farm and Make a Difference as you learn about the sustainable agriculture on the islands. Connect with a Local and indulge in a traditional Be My Guest lunch.

Day 7: Maui

Warm your heart and soul in paradise, spending the day at leisure exploring Maui on your terms. This evening, sip a Mai Tai and sway to the tunes of authentic Hawaii during a traditional Luau Regional Meal.

Day 8: Maui – Lihue, Kauai (3 Nights)

A leisurely start to your day will see you eventually board a short flight to the natural wonderland of Kauai. Set your watch to island time and get settled in at your beachfront hotel.

Day 9: Kauai Sightseeing

Sit back and let Trafalgar do the rest as you embark on a visit to Grove Farm Sugar Plantation, including a private tour of the home on this historic sugar cane plantation. We continue to Waimea Canyon to view the red, brown and green depths of 'The Grand Canyon of the Pacific. '

Day 10: Kauai

Enjoy a free day discovering Kauai and its many natural wonders. Consider a helicopter flip over the Na Pali Coast and Manawaiopuna Falls or immerse yourself in the laidback lifestyle of the locals. Our island hop through Hawaii almost at its end, we join our Travel Director and travel companions for a Farewell Dinner.

Day 11: Depart Kauai

For now it's a fond a hui hou... until we meet again. Take a transfer to the airport or consider extending your stay on Kauai.

We enjoyed all the places we visited, especially how we got priority as a tour group e.g. admission to the Vatican. Special dinners and venues were great. Quality of hotels was excellent. I have one complaint and that is THE COST OF THE OPTIONAL EXTRAS which are really an important component of the tour add up to a substantial amount by the end of the tour. They should be included as part of the overall tour cost, so that you know what the cost is when you book the tour. There should be ONE total fee at the start when we book the tour. It may be embarrassing if you cannot afford some of the optional extras because you have not budgeted for them. Please consider this suggestion. I will NOT go on another Trafalgar tour because it cost me and my wife an extra 1300 Euros for the optional extras which I believe were essential components of the Tour.
