Day 1 : Fly to Honolulu
The moment we step off the plane we feel the Aloha spirit that draws so many travelers to this lush island paradise. After a traditional flower lei greeting, we check in to our luxurious resort hotel for a three-night stay, ideally located by the beautiful white sands of Waikiki Beach.
Day 2 : Pearl Harbor
Our day begins with the most moving site on Oahu, Pearl Harbor National Memorial. View the galleries and exhibits that recall December 7, 1941, the day that catapulted the U.S. into World War II. A documentary film precedes our Navy launch out to the USS Arizona Memorial to observe the sunken battleship. Afterward, E Komo Mai (welcome) new friends over refreshing beverages during a Holiday Vacations Welcome Lunch in Honolulu. Our city tour continues, bringing us past the volcanic shaped Hawaiian State Capitol building and Iolani Palace, the only palace in the U.S. once inhabited by a reigning monarch. We’ll also visit the Punchbowl, an extinct volcano and home of the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific.
Day 3 : Oahu
Today is yours to experience all Oahu has to offer. Enjoy warm island breezes while relaxing on Waikiki Beach or explore Diamond Head crater. Perhaps mingle with the fish at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, lose yourself in Honolulu’s downtown ambiance, or spend the day learning about the ancient cultures of six island nations at the Polynesian Cultural Center.
Day 4 : Waimea Canyon
This morning we fly to Kauai, known as the Garden Isle for its lush, tropical landscapes. After lunch, we sample rich, aromatic coffee at the Kauai Coffee Company's Visitor Center, the country’s largest grower. Later we witness the Grand Canyon of the Pacific, Waimea Canyon, a vast gorge in striking colors of red rock and emerald green vegetation. This evening we check in to our upscale Kauai accommodations.
Day 5 : Kauai
Kauai is known as the second wettest place on earth, resulting in lush rainforest, breathtaking scenery and balmy breezes. Today is yours to explore! Our included excursion features a relaxing ride on the Wailua River with songs, stories and hula lessons followed by a short nature walk through the rainforest to Smith’s Fern Grotto. Spend the rest of the day at leisure touring a botanical garden, flightseeing by helicopter, or relaxing by the pool at our resort hotel.
Day 6 : Maui
We fly to Maui today, nicknamed the Valley Isle for the valleys carved into its mountains. We enjoy lunch, then visit the Maui Ocean Center for an up-close view of the marine life that calls Hawaii home. Meet some of the most notable visitors to these waters during the 3D Humpbacks of Hawaii experience. Next we drive to Lahaina, an old whaling port dotted with historical landmarks, shops and galleries. The town is especially known for its gigantic Banyan tree with branches spanning an entire city block! Later we arrive at our hotel located on Ka'anapali Beach.
Day 7 : Traditional Luau
Sleep in or wake up early to watch the sunrise from the summit of Haleakala, House of the Sun. A pleasant stroll from the hotel leads to Whalers Village, an inviting area of shops, dining and live entertainment. Tonight, enjoy tropical drinks and the exotic flavors of native Hawaiian cuisine at the Drums of the Pacific Luau and Polynesian Show. Our evening ends with music and dances of the South Pacific!
Day 8 : The Valley Isle
We have the day to relax at the hotel, play on a championship golf course, go on a snorkeling expedition, or travel the winding Road to Hana.
Day 9 : Aloha Hawaii
After a morning at leisure we explore the Maui Tropical Plantation on a narrated tram tour to discover more of the diverse fruits and plants that grow here. View palm trees, bananas, avocados, and taro in various states of development. Then we gather for a Holiday Vacations Farewell Dinner with new friends before boarding our overnight flight back to the mainland.
