Grand Hawaii Vacation (EK)

13 Day Tour from Honolulu to Maui

2022 Tour Details View 2021 Tour Details »

Every day is Hawaiian shirt day on this ultimate vacation to Hawaii and its lush, tropical islands. How else would you dress for palm-lined beaches, breezy scenic cruises, and traditional luaus with haupia and hula? Even your loudest prints will serve as camouflage as you journey through the multicolored rainforests of Oahu, Maui, Kauai, and the Big Island of Hawaii. A kaleidoscope of color for the eyes, the Hawaiian Islands equally spread the wonder across all senses. The sweet fragrance of orchids and jasmine fill the air, the sounds of crashing waves and plucking ukuleles can be heard for miles, and the taste of rich Kona coffee, buttery macadamia nuts, and soft Hawaiian sweetbread are worth the trip alone. Leading you to verdant valleys and sky-high volcanoes, sprawling plantations and scenic parks, and historic museums and heartwarming memorials, this tour of Hawaii is as colorful as your boldest button-down.

RANDY SCHUSTER

Escorting tours for more than 20 years

Being a Tour Director has afforded me the opportunity to travel more than I would have ever dreamed. During my many years as a Tour Director, I have had the opportunity to lead tours in Australia, New Zealand, Costa Rica, Hawaii, and the Western U.S. I am extremely proud of my home state of California. Come with me on tour and I will show you the unique beauty, ethnic diversity, tempting local cuisine, and, hopefully, help you spot a celebrity or two!
