GLOBUS 2024: Best of the Hawaiian Islands (EW)

10 Day Tour from Honolulu to Maui

So long, predictable. Aloha, paradise! It's time to trade the humdrum for hammocks, the mundane for Mai Tais, and your day-to-day rut for rocking evening luaus. This 10-day Hawaiian getaway is just the break you need to stop and smell the roses. And the plumeria. And the pikake. The aromatic air of the 50th state will easily transport you to an elevated state of mind - as will the turquoise waters, black sand beaches, and the spectacular rainforests, canyons, memorials, and museums of three magnificent islands. Across the 'Valley Island' of Maui, the 'Big Island' of Hawaii, and 'The Gathering Place' of Oahu, this island-hopping tour of Hawaii leads you to the valleys and peaks of this spectacular state, balancing uplifting visits to coffee and sugar plantations with the right amount of downtime to taste the sweet life of the islands. On this Hawaiian getaway, life's a beach!
