Full description
Start with a drive through Hilo along the historic waterfront, and head out to the old fishing village of Kalapana. Move on to Mackenzie State Recreation Area, take a hike along the now-closed highway. Follow the lava flow through the pine forest to the cliffs overlooking the new black sand beach. Enjoy a picnic lunch amongst the pine trees. Stop by Star of the Sea Painted Church, moved twice to save it from lava flows. Head to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park to visit the Kilauea Visitor’s Center, the Kilauea Iki Crater Overlook, and Steaming Bluffs.

Although the guide explained everything very well on the tour, I felt that I really did not enjoy how it should be because much of the time you spend on a bus, rarely interact with nature, nothing like anything I had imagined it was . In conclusion, in my view, a lot of money to last 80% of the trip mounted on a bus.
