Need Your Recommendations for a Private Tour of Oahu

Aloha!

My husband and I have a private tour scheduled for a full 6-7 hours to travel to any sites we select on Oahu. Please help us select sites to visit. Here is some information about us/our likes/etc that might be important:

We have a separate day scheduled to visit USS Arizona Memorial/Pearl Harbor so those sites are not part of this day.

We have a separate time scheduled for a tour of the Iolani Palace so that is not part of this day.

We love history, sampling local foods, would like to see a beach with turtles, would love to watch some surfing, and view unique places.

A visit to Diamondhead is already on the list.

Will also be spending time on Maui and Hawaii islands as part of our total trip...already have snorkeling and diving scheduled for that part of the trip.

We are in our mid-60s but active.

Your recommendations? And and all suggestions appreciated.

You can easily take The Bus to Diamond Head. No need to waste time on a tour going to Diamond Head.

Skip Haiku Gardens.

Combine driving tours #1 and #2 from this list. Add National Cemetery of the Pacific at the end of the trip. See the murals at the top of the monument and take the Memorial Walk to the lookout.

You can see surfing in Waikiki, so I wouldn't worry about it for the tour.

Hi Isweeney, can you tell me who you booked your private tour through please? We are looking at doing a private tour next year as well, so we can just stop at places we want but don’t want to hire a car. Thanks
