Trace back to the early years of the Kingdom of Hawaii on a four-hour trip that includes hilltop views from the Battle of Nuuanu site, a tour of Iolani Palace, plus the Hawaiian Mission Houses. Start out atop Nu'uanu Pali, a scenic lookout where the bloody Battle of Nuuanu took place in 1795. You'll then see where two prominent royal families are buried in the Mauna'ala Royal Mausoleum. Enjoy a passing glimpse of the King Kamehameha statue, erected in honor of the kingdom's founder, and admire Kawaiaha'o Church, the first Christian church built on Oahu. Step inside Iolani Palace, where reigning monarchs lived until 1893. This official royal residence now houses a collection of original furnishings and centuries-old artifacts among its opulent rooms. Your final stop at the Hawaiian Mission Houses reveals the influence of Christian missionaries in 19th-century Hawaii. Discover three historic homes, two of which are the oldest standing in all of Hawaii. The Frame House was a communal home for missionary families, while the Chamberlain House served as a depository. Be sure to check out the Printing Office, where some of the first ever books were printed in the Hawaiian language.
