Free Walking Tour Honolulu

Hawaii Free Tours is the first and only free tour in Hawaii and 100% owned and operated by locals.

Free Honolulu Walking Tour

Aloha kākou and welcome!  As Hawaii’s first and only running free tour, Hawaii Free Tour’s mission is to share the rich history, culture, people, food, and the way of this beautiful place that we call home and we feel that sharing Hawaii with visitors from all around the world should not just be quantifiable through a monetary purchase of a tour.  

Come join us as we take you on a short but informative walking tour around some of Hawaii’s most historically significant landmarks.  You will be led by a Hawaii born & raised local guide(s) and they will share the history of Hawaii and some of their insights on Hawaii’s modern day multi-cultural facets.  

In addition to our free walking tour (Offered 3x a week), we also offer other tours as well.  We have two different paid small group food tours for those that want to experience some of the best local food spots on the island and we have a paid hiking + waterfall tour for those that are feeling a little bit more adventurous. 

Regardless of which tour or tours you choose to take, we hope you leave the islands with a better understanding of our history and culture to go side by side of what you already know or see on the internet and TV!

Elles and Victor are fantastic tour guides. This was my first time visiting Oahu and taking their free walking tour was one of the highlights. They are knowledgeable, kind and have a passion for sharing Hawaiian culture. I would highly recommend the walking tour to anyone wanting a memorable experience. Outstanding!

Joined this walking tour a few weeks ago and I’m so glad it didn’t get cancelled because of the rain (which cleared up before we started the tour) Vic and Elless gave a wonderful insight into the past and also the current. We were able to ask as many questions as we liked and we stopped for multiple photos too. After the tour wrapped up we were given so many more wonderful recommendations which included visiting the streets a few blocks away to check out the street art!

The best deal in Hawai’i! Victor and Ellis were great tour guides. They were knowledgeable, friendly, attentive, and knew their stuff. They gave a detailed and honest tour about Hawai’i’s history and present day Hawai’i, with no typical tour guide BS. Can’t recommend enough. Thanks guys!
