Description:

Our accessible Beautiful Hawaii Tour is must-do photography activity on Hawaii’s Windward coast for all travelers! Perfect for anyone who prefers a later start to the day, shorter walks, as well as lovers of nature. A 5.5-hour circuit takes you on a journey to bask in the glory of natural attractions, official Hawaii movie sites, and photo-worthy attractions offered by “the gathering place,” our island, Oahu!

Start the photo tour with the panoramic views of the Waikiki and Honolulu Skyline at less known secret lookouts. Next, a dose of history meets you at the Pali Lookout, where King Kamehameha united Oahu under his rule during the epic battle of Nuuanu.

Then, come face-to-face with the Ko’olau mountains which is followed by the white sands of Waimanalo. Local food fills the belly before you’re left breathless from the views of Makapu’u Beach Lookout, Hanauma Bay, and the famous Halona Blowhole.

Don’t miss the beauty of Hawaii and book this one-of-a-kind photo tour of Oahu and its amazing colors! Bring your camera and snap everlasting photos as you create new memories of a lifetime!

Frequently Asked Questions
Yes we do, please message us with what you need so we can quote you a price.
Click on the red "Book It" button and you will see live availability. Keep in mind availability changes constantly, so make sure to book in advance!
H Tours Hawaii is a "one stop shop" for all the best activities in the Hawaiian Islands. Since we work with many providers, reservations are necessary. WE HIGHLY recommend making reservations, as many activities are at a discount when you reserve in advance. Some providers even charge higher for those "walking in" because they know chances are you're not going to walk away. Finally, a reservation ensures you have a space on the tour. Trust us you don't want to spend so much time and money to come to Hawaii and then miss out on an activity because they were booked out!
Choose the tour you are interested in, click the red “Book It” button adjacent to the tour information, and complete the booking form.
Most companies, if not all, require you to call them if you're trying to book something 2-3 days in advance. Do you really want to be spending your valuable time in Hawaii calling around to desperately find something that is available to do? While we can usually accommodate most last-minute bookings, we highly encourage those that are checking out our website far in advance to book 2-3 weeks prior to desired date. You never know if there's a convention, special event, or an increase in overall visitors in town, and it would be a shame if the activities that you want to do are sold out because you waited until the last minute. Basically, if you know you want to do it, just book it!
Most companies have a set of centrally located hotels that they do pick ups from. When you select your hotel in the booking page, you will see the pickup location and directions. This makes the pickup process short so you can start the tour as soon as possible!
Gratuity is never required but if you enjoyed your experience, a tip is always greatly appreciated!
NO! You do not need to have any experience in photography to join any of our tours. We know that sometimes people feel that they cannot take photos, but let us show you that you can.
Yes! Bring your camera. Bring whatever it is that you take pictures with. These tours are not just for those who have decided to invest hundreds of dollars into their camera equipment. We don’t care if you take pictures with an ipad or a polaroid as long as you bring something to capture the beauty with you, you will be fine.
We pick you up at your hotel in Waikiki. If your hotel is outside of Waikiki, which is from the Ala Moana Hotel to the end of Kalakaua, we ask you to make your way to the paid parking area of the Honolulu Zoo. Sunrise and Complete Island Tours pick you up one hour prior to sunrise. The Sunset tour picks you up four hours prior to sunset. Full Moon; one hour prior to moon rise.
If your hotel's zip code is not 96815 then you will need to go to the Honolulu zoo parking area for pick up. We do not pick up anywhere outside the Waikiki area. This includes the Kahala Hotel, Moana Valley Inn, the Ymca, Kailua, Pearl City, North Shore, Ko’Olina, the west side, east side, leeward side, Hawaii Kai, all military bases. The Waikiki area holds most of the hotels on the island. Please check with your hotel as to where it is located. We ask that you make your way to the Honolulu zoo for pick up. Please contact us if you are not sure where your hotel is located on the island.
With each tour you are provided a tripod to help you capture clear and crisp photos of everything and anything. We have rain gear for everyone on board. If we happen to be out when it starts to rain, we got you covered, literally. Also with every tour we will bring along information books about the island.
We use a 12 passenger van for our tours. Our van has space for your and our camera gear and small personal items. We will keep each tour (other than the private tour) to a 7 person limit.
Our tours, adventurous in nature, still put your safety first. We carry a first aid kit on board at all times. The tour guide is there to let you know what is safe and what is not.
No! Bring something to carry everything you bring with you. There are spots where theft is known to happen and we will not leave anything in the van.
Although there is no age limit to participate in a tour, you must keep in mind that our tour is adventurous in nature and anyone under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult.
We do not have access for physically disabled people. Again, call us and let us know you concerns and we will be happy to help.
It is recommended that you wear closed toe shoes. Bring a hat and some glasses to block away the sometimes intense sun. You may want to put on some sunblock as well.
Yes, we will stop to grab something small to eat during the tour (not included). You are recommended to bring cash for some places that do not accept C/C.
The weather in Hawaii is for the most part beautiful but sometimes we can get a little rain. The tours will always go out when the forecast is calling for scattered showers. This great chance to capture unique photographs, possibly rainbows and waterfalls off the Ko’olau cliffs. On the rare occasion we will have flash flood warnings and lightning. If this occurs we will still go head with the tour, after all this is a photography tour and bad weather presents great possibilities for amazing photographs. However, if the weather continues with unsafe conditions, then the tour will be canceled and you will have the option of rescheduling or receiving a 75% refund. The call to cancel will be one hour after pick up.

Alex did a great job on our tour last week. Not only does he know some great spots, he worked with each of us to make sure we got great photos. I learned quite a bit on our one day tour and highly recommend OPT!
