Grand Circle Island Tour Details
This full day tour starts with pickup at major hotels and resorts all along the Kona coast and returns you back in time for a late dinner on your own.
Starting around 7AM your tour guide will pick you up and head south towards the beautiful coffee growing areas of South Kona for a continental breakfast. Along the way we will make brief stops to enjoy the beautiful views. After breakfast we continue south to visit a black sand beach and a beautiful little cafe for a late morning treat.
Before heading into Volcanoes National Park, we make a stop for a gourmet lunch with wonderful options that everyone will love. You will be well satisfied and ready to explore the amazing volcano, itʻs craters and lava tubes.
We continue around the bottom of Big Island and continue the tour into historic Hilo with itʻs cute downtown area parks, shops and just on the edge of it all, the famed Rainbow Falls. We take some time to enjoy this wonderful location.
We stop at various overlooks and your guide will tell stories of the people, the lands and events that has happened over the years so you can really appreciate what you experience throughout the day. No area is more important than the incredible Waipio Valley, the last major stop on this Grand Circle Island tour.
