Sightseeing on a Budget on Oahu

Sightseeing on a Budget on Oahu

When it comes to flights, accommodation, and meals out, visiting Oahu can be expensive. With careful planning, though, you don’t have to spend a fortune on sightseeing. Here are our tips for saving money on the Hawaiian island.

Book a Combo Tour

If you’re on a budget but still want to do as much as possible, it pays to book a combo tour that combines two best-selling activities—such as a visit to Pearl Harbor and Honolulu city tour—at a discounted rate.

Go on a Circle Island Tour

You can circle the entire island and tick off all Hawaiian highlights in a single day. Booking a Circle Island tour means you can save money on renting a car, without having to sacrifice any of the landmarks that are tricky to get to by public transportation, such as Byodo-In Temple and the Halona Blowhole.

Take a Hop-On Hop-Off Tour

Some of the most popular attractions in the Honolulu area, such as Pearl Harbor and Makapu’u Point, are spread out. To save on transportation, opt for hop-on hop-off bus tour that transports you all around the city and allows you to customize your own itinerary. 

Choose a Tour that Includes a Meal or Tastings

Instead of booking a regular walking tour, choose one that includes food tastings to save on the cost of meals. Some experiences—such as cooking classes, culture-themed walking tours, and snorkeling and sunset cruises—even include a full lunch or dinner.
