  • Day 1

    Your vacation in paradise starts with a flight to Honolulu and a connecting flight to the island of Kauai. Arrive mid-afternoon and transfer to your hotel. A welcome reception/finger food dinner awaits. Courtyard by Marriott Coconut Beach – 4 nights (D)

  • Day 2

    Our all-day, exclusive Tastes of Kauai tour includes a stop at Aunty Liliko’i’s, home of award-winning passion fruit products; a chance to get a famous red dirt souvenir shirt and enjoy lunch at a local barbecue in Waimea; plus visit the Kauai Cookie Co., The Salty Wahine (gourmet salts) and Kauai Coffee. Gifts, samples and/or special discounts await you at every stop. It’s a great way to sample island foods and meet the people. (FB,L)

  • Day 3

    The Steelgrass Chocolate Farm is one of our favorite attractions in the islands. During your visit, you’ll learn how chocolate is grown, get to taste and rate 11 different gourmet chocolates from around the world, plus learn about (and taste) many delicious Hawaiian fruits. Your afternoon is free at the resort. (FB,L)

  • Day 4

    Your first exclusive experience is this morning – flightseeing over the Na Pali Coast in a private plane, home of the spectacular sheer cliffs on the west side of the island that can only be seen from the air. Your flight also takes you over Waimea Canyon, often called the Grand Canyon of the Pacific. Tonight we take you out to a local landmark for dinner, the Plantation Gardens at Poipu Beach. (FB,D)

  • Day 5

    Change islands today, with a quick 25 minute non-stop to Maui. On arrival, visit Maui Plantation, where a short tour acquaints you with the coconut. Learn how they are grown and harvested and about other native Hawaiian plants and fruits. This is a good souvenir stop. A bit touristy, but fun and educational. We’ll make one of our favorite “side” stops on the way to Kaanapali Beach, and the Royal Lahaina Resort. A welcome dinner at sunset is included this evening at the famous Napili Kai Resort. Royal Lahaina – 4 nights (FB,D)

  • Day 6

    Depart the hotel in our small coach (which allows us to go places the big coaches can’t), heading for “up Country.” First stop is O’o Farms, where you’ll learn about your food, watch it picked from the garden and then how it is prepared. A true “Farm-to-Fork” experience. Then it’s on to taste pineapple wine and see some ancient Chinese temples and commemorative gardens. (FB,L)

  • Day 7

    A free day to enjoy the resort, nearby shops (shuttle available) or just relax. We will gather together at the hotel tonight for a sunset dinner. (FB,D)

  • Day 8

    Make your way into the center of the island, to the Surfing Goat Dairy Farm, to meet… the goats. It’s a “hands-on” tour with cheese tasting at the conclusion. Down the road, a gourmet lunch awaits at the old Hali’maile General Store. Tonight, dinner and U’lalena (oo-la-layna), a wonderful cultural performance in an indoor theater in Lahaina, brings our travels together to a glorious conclusion. (FB,L,D)

  • Day 9

    Your return flight leaves the island midmorning with a 7:30am departure from your hotel. Land at home in the early evening and your door-to-door service is waiting! (FB)
