Your description indicated a 4 hr duration instead of the actual 6 hr. We were unable to visit the State Palace because their schedule didn't allow for a Sat. morning 'self-guided' tour. Taking another 2-hrs interfered w/ embarkation at POA. Had we known the tour was 6 hrs long we would not have booked it. There should be some refund consideration.
Step back in time on this unforgettable and exciting adventure as you visit the historic highlights of the Kingdom of Hawaii. Traveling into the lush Nuuanu Valley, your first stop is Queen Emma's Summer Palace where a past era comes alive. Next, you drive through a tropical rainforest en route to the world famous Pali Lookout.
Tour includes a One-Hour Tour inside Iolani Palace!
After driving through a spectacular tree-tunnel you arrive at Hawaii's sacred Royal Mausoleum,"Mauna ‘Ala", the final resting place of six of the kingdom's last eight ruling monarchs.
Then take an hour-long journey inside the ornate Iolani Palace, the only Royal Palace in the United States, to discover its splendid treasures. You will also see the historic sites of the legendary King Kamehameha's statue and the unique Kawaiahao Church, "the Westminster Abbey of Hawaii".
