Full description

Start your day with guided visits to some of the most majestic waterfalls on the Big Island. Stop at the Waipio Valley lookout, where you can admire a dramatic backdrop of lush cliffs that drop into the sparkling blue ocean. Continue riding along the Hamakua coast as more postcard-worthy views pass by your window. Take a short walk through the rainforest for an up-close view of Akaka Falls and the famous Rainbow Falls. In the afternoon, explore the wonders of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Explore steam vents and the Halema’uma’u and Kilauea Iki crater lookouts, and take a short hike along the crater rim trail.

    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.
