Immerse yourself in Hawaiian culture and history with our Hawaii Culture tour on this fun filled adventure to some of the most significant historical venues throughout Oahu. Your guide will be local in-the-know and proud kamaaina (born and raised in Hawaii) who are more than just knowledgeable about the sites you’ll visit – they’re proud of their Native Hawaiian ancestry.

Your day begins with a visit to one of the largest fishponds on Oahu, located in picturesque Hawaii Kai. There, you’ll learn how ancient Hawaiians used the fishponds to trap and catch fish, necessary to feed the growing population.

You’ll head East toward Makapuu, where you’ll explore the rock formation known as Pele’s Chair, as well as towering Koko Head. There, you’ll learn about the history, cultural significance, and local lore surrounding the “chair” that overlooks the ocean below.

Prepare to be amazed at your next stop, which includes exploring an ancient Hawaiian heiau, otherwise known as a Hawaiian temple. The Makapuu Heiau, located near Makapuu Beach Park, is a site still sacred to the Hawaiian people and recently preserved and cared-for by the locals.

As you round the windward side of Oahu, your next stop is in the bustling beach town of Kailua, where you’ll visit the Ulupo Heiau, considered a State Historic Site in Hawaii. Here, you can explore the area, which served as a religious site for Native Hawaiians.

From Kailua, it’s a short drive to the incredible Pali Lookout, site of the history-changing Battle of Nuuanu. There, in 1795, King Kamehameha I won the struggle that finally united Oahu under his rule. This fierce battle claimed hundreds of soldiers’ lives, many of whom were forced off the Pali’s sheer cliffs!
