Full description
The morning is filled with guided visits to some of the most majestic waterfalls on the Big Island. The views stop you in your tracks at the Waipio Valley lookout, where a dramatic backdrop of lush cliffs drops into the sparkling blue ocean. Continue riding along the Hamakua coast as more postcard-worthy views pass by your window before visiting Akaka Falls and the famous Rainbow Falls. Take a short walk through the rainforest for an up-close view and plenty of photo opportunities. In the afternoon, explore the wonders of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, including steam vents, the Halema’uma’u and Kilauea Iki crater lookouts, and take a short hike along crater rim trail. From here, relax and take it all in at Punalu’u Beach, a great place to spot marine life from the black-sand shore. On the leisurely drive back around sunset, you’ll see views of South Point, the southernmost point of the United States, and Kealakekua Bay. Finally, enjoy a visit to Kona Coffee Farm. Stroll through the orchards with your guide and learn about the harvesting and milling process while sampling a warm cup of Kona-grown coffee.

A great way to see the island if you are short of time on your trip. We had a great guide (Brett) who was really knowledgeable and gave us a lot of information about the island, it’s history and the volcanos. It’s a long day but the bus is comfortable, the food and snacks were good and we got to drive around the whole island with some interesting stops. I would recommend.

The tour was really good and specially for our tour guide Brett. It was raining that day amd the visibility was really low, so we could not go to the active volcano but to make it up he drove us to the solidified lava fields and also showed us another dormant crater. He provided us with snacks, umbrellas and rain jackets and took very good care of us. The two waterfalls Akaka and Rainbow falls were amazing. We went to the big island just to see the active volcano, too bad it was raining… wish we could still walk up there. Other than that th whole tour was fun.

This was by far the highlight of my trip to Hawaii! Kurt, our guide, was OUTSTANDING! My daughter and myself spike about it later and agreed that Kurt made the adventure. His knowledge of the islands, the legends and the actual history, the plants as well as all the wild animals ... unbelievable. The places that we stopped at were beautiful, but with the information from Kurt... they came to life. We would do the tour again and are recommending it to everyone we speak to.
