Narrated and Guided Tours of the Trail
At one time the Native Hawaiian Hospitality Association offered two free guided walking tours a day of the Waikiki Historic Trail. The Queen's Tour included historic sites from Kapiolani Park to the Moana Surfrider Hotel. The Kalia Tour covered the grounds of Fort DeRussy and the Hilton Hawaiian Hotel. Unfortunately those free tours are no longer available but it might be possible to arrange a fee-based tour by contacting the Native Hawaiian Hospitality Association at 808-441-1404. See also:
