Day 1 UK - Lahaina (Maui)

Titan’s door-to-door travel service collects you from home for your flights to Maui. Upon arrival, we’ll have a warm traditional Hawai’ian greeting with floral lei, before transferring to our hotel.

Day 2 Lahaina

We waste no time in exploring the incredible scenery of Hawai’i as we head for Haleakala National Park, famed for its towering dormant volcano and breathtaking landscapes. We’ll get a glimpse of local life as we stop by quaint Makawao, browse the independent boutiques in Wailuku, and explore the colourful, rustic seafront community of Paia.

You’ll want to keep your camera at the ready for our final stop of the tour: the soaring emerald peaks of Iao Valley (subject to weather conditions). This peaceful, 4,000-acre park is home to some of Maui’s most recognisable landmarks - including the 1,200-ft Iao Needle.

  • Tour of Maui including Haleakala National Park, Makawao, Wailuku, Paia and Iao Valley (all day)

Day 3 Lahaina

Today is at leisure to spend as you please. Perhaps relax on the sprawling beach just in front of our hotel or browse the town’s selection of art galleries and unique shops.

For something extra special, you might like to join our optional sunset cruise this evening. Dine under the orange-hued skies as the sun dips behind the islands in the distance - an enchanting way to spend your last evening on Maui.

Day 4 Lahaina - Kailua-Kona (Big Island)

The largest of the archipelago, aptly nicknamed ‘Big Island’ is twice the size of the other Hawai’ian islands combined. It’s home to vivid emerald cliffs and towering volcanic mountains, swathes of golden sand and mist-shrouded valleys. After our flight to Big island, we jump straight into seeing some of the best bits of this island.

Our tour takes us along the Kona Coast to Pu’uhonua O Hanaunau National Historic Park, once the home of royal grounds and a place of refuge for ancient Hawai’ian lawbreakers, historic Kailua-Kona; and Kona Coffee Plantation and Place of Refuge.

  • Tour of Kahului coast including Pu’uhonua O Hanaunau National Historic Park and Kailua-Kona (afternoon)
  • Visit to Kona Coffee Plantation (afternoon)

Day 5 Volcanoes National Park

Head out for a full day of exploration and breathtaking views. At the brilliantly blue Kealakekua Bay, we might see spinner dolphins swimming and splashing in the bay.

We’ll then discover Volcanoes National Park, home to two volcanoes including Kilauea - one of the most active volcanoes on earth. We continue to Rainbow Falls, where the waterfall cascades down over a lava cave.

  • Tour of Kona including Volcanoes National Park, Kealakekua Bay and Rainbow Falls (all day)

Day 6 Kailua-Kona

A day at leisure to relax on our hotel’s private beach or soaking in the saltwater lagoon.

Day 7 Honolulu - Waikiki (Oahu)

We fly to Oahu this morning, where we’ll stay in the cosmopolitan capital of Honolulu. Home to historic landmarks, fine dining, world-class shopping and golden beaches, Honolulu is the racing pulse of Hawaii. After arriving at our hotel perched on Waikiki beach, the afternoon is completely at leisure.

Day 8 Waikiki - Pearl Harbor

We’ll uncover a poignant piece of Hawai’ian history at Pearl Harbor this morning and pay homage to the thousands of soldiers who lost their lives in the 1941 attack. We’ll visit the USS Arizona Memorial and its Visitor Centre, as well as the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific Oahu. Located in a long-extinct volcano called Punchbowl Crater, almost 53,000 veterans (including those who were lost during the attack at Pearl Harbor) are laid to rest here.

In Downtown Honolulu, we’ll stop by the Iolani Palace - the official residence of the Hawai’ian Kingdom’s last two monarchs. The rest of the day is free.

  • Pearl Harbor, Punchbowl Crater Cemetery and Iolani Palace (morning)

Day 9 Waikiki

A day at leisure with the delights of Honolulu at your doorstep. You may like to join our optional excursion to the Polynesian Cultural Center and spend the day delving even deeper into the rich heritage of the Pacific Islands.

Day 10 Waikiki

Our final day in our Pacific paradise. Choose to spend it at leisure, or join an optional excursion around the entire island to see the very best of what Oahu has to offer. You’ll journey from the South Shore to the towering Koolau Mountain Range and the famous North Shore, where waves pound pristine white sandy beaches.

Day 11 Honolulu - In flight

We transfer to Honolulu airport for the return flight to the UK, via Los Angeles.

Day 12 UK

Upon arrival, your Titan vehicle will be waiting for the journey home.
