Click for Dates and Prices Day 1 Arrive Honolulu, Oahu – Waikiki (2 Nights)
Welcome to Hawaii. In the traditional Aloha spirit, you'll be greeted at the airport with a flower lei. Explore your hotel in the heart of Waikiki Beach and spend the rest of the afternoon as you like: dive into the warm gentle waves of the Pacific or relax with a tropical drink poolside. At 6 p.m., gather for a Hawaiian-style Welcome Reception and dinner with your Travel Director and fellow travellers.(Welcome Reception, Dinner)

Day 2 Pearl Harbor and Honolulu Sightseeing
Begin your exploration of the island Oahu. During a visit to Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona Memorial, you'll be moved by this tribute to the World War II military personnel still entombed in the ship's hull since the fatal attack in 1941. After a drive through the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific in Punchbowl Crater, return to downtown Honolulu to see the splendid Iolani Palace, former home to Hawaii's last monarchs, and the iconic King Kamehameha I statue at Aliiolani Hale. View the current state capitol building, built in a Hawaiian version of modernist Bauhaus architecture. The rest of the afternoon is yours to spend relaxing on the beach, doing some shopping or just exploring.(Full Breakfast)
