Full description

Starting in the early afternoon before the magic light appears your guide will pick you up at your Waikiki Hotel five hours before sunset to take guests on an enchanted visual road trip around half of the island. Guides have carefully picked several locations where guests create stunning images of coastal vistas, tropical lush valleys, dramatic waterfalls, ancient ruins, and a scene from ancient Hawaii.

When the magic light arrives they have three different locations you'll go to depending on the weather and light. Sometimes you'll be on top of a mountain overlooking Diamond Head and the Pacific coastline other times you find yourselves close to the ocean near the beach with silhouetted palms for the classic Hawaii shot. Learn to photograph a waterfall with your DSLR or iPhone. Then guides will drive guests back to Waikiki in time for dinner.

The itineraries vary with each tour but here are some spots that may be included depending on the year and current weather: Lanai Point, Sandy’s beach, Makapu’u point and beach, Ulupo Heiau, Pali Lookout, and one of the sunset locations. On Friday nights in July and August, you can see the Waikiki sunset with the firework display.

Good for limited time In Honolulu. Liked small group, but received limited narration of sites due to training of new personnel.
