Tour the "Lost" Locations

Hawaiian Escapades Tours specializes in personalized, small-group tours, and none is more unique than the tour of the "Lost" TV series locations. Guides and guests trace the steps of characters from the popular TV show, which is filmed on Oahu. Known as "Hollywood's Tropical Backdrop," the island of Oahu provides the perfect place for a myriad of natural and exotic settings, whether arid deserts, tropical rainforests, majestic waterfalls, mountain peaks or the beaches of Waikiki. The tour takes "Lost" fans to a number of familiar locations, including the "crash site" beach of ill-fated flight that kicked off the series.

Ride a Segway

Tour the streets of Waikiki on a Segway, one of the most pedestrian-friendly and environmentally conscious modes of transportation available in Honolulu. With no throttle or brake, the Segway features self-balancing gyroscopes and tilt sensors that respond to your every move as if extensions of your body. Consuming only pennies of electricity per charge, Segway's electric motor offers a powerful, quiet and smooth ride akin to gliding.

Treat Yourself to Lomi Lomi

After a day of hiking Diamond Head or exploring Oahu's majestic natural surroundings, treat yourself to a therapeutic massage at the Honua boutique spa at the Waikiki Grand Hotel.
