OAHU
Highlights:
  • Amazing aerial views of Oahu
  • Thrill of a lifetime!

Description:
This tour begins with a beautiful view of placid Keehi Lagoon and continues over historic Honolulu Harbor.  Here you will see Aloha Tower, once the tallest structure on the island, as well cruise ships from distant ports.  Next is downtown Honolulu, featuring the only royal palace in the country.  Above the city stands Punchbowl, the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. 

The tour continues above Ala Moana Beach Park, Magic Island, the Ala Wai Yacht Harbor and Waikiki Beach.  Beyond, you’ll see Diamond Head crater from a dramatic perspective, the “Gold Coast” where multi-millionaires make their homes, and spectacular Hanauma Bay.

Rounding the east end of the island, you’ll see rugged coastline, inviting Sandy Beach and Makapuu Point and lighthouse.  Your aerial tour continues over Sea Life Park, the estate where TV’s Magnum P.I. was filmed, and miles of white sand beach.

You’ll be treated to a stunning view of Mount Olomana and, later, the Nuuanu Pali where King Kamehameha’s warriors won a decisive battle to unite the islands. Your tour winds up with a great view of Pearl Harbor, the Arizona Memorial and the Battleship Missouri.

Frequently Asked Questions
Click on the red "Book It" button and make a request. You will receive a confirmation usually within hours. If it is not available you will not be charged and we'll help you find an alternative date or similar tour.
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. This makes the pickup process short so you can start the tour as soon as possible! When you get to the booking page, select the hotel you are staying at. Your confirmation email will have the pickup location which will either be your hotel, or somewhere within 5 minute walking distance.
Gratuity is never required but if you enjoyed your experience, a tip is always greatly appreciated!

Overall:
Definitely a MUST if you are a visitor to honolulu! We seen parts of the land and ocean we wouldn't be able to see on any look out, also a lot of monuments. Make sure you take a good camera or you have a lot of battery on your phone because in the 30 minutes i was up there i took a lot of photos lol... more

I would strongly recommend this as it has been the highlight of the trip so far and oahu is such a absolutely beautiful island with lots of culture

Had a great experience but the dvd was a huge waste of $40
Overall:
We just received our dvd in the mail today and were so excited to watch it. We had a wonderful experience but the dvd is not worth the money. We were sad to see many things that were shown to us on the tour were not on film (pearl harbor and the lighthouse).

We paid for a private charter, and felt like we were treated like cattle. We were not able to communicate with the pilot or each other. The pilot was nice, but just recited a script. There was no interaction.
