The package includes roundtrip airfare to and from the Big Island plus ground transportation and a guide. So all you have to do is relax and enjoy the tour.
This tour starts with pickup from your Waikiki hotel and transport to HNL airport. If you are on Maui you will be picked up from your hotel in South or West Maui and transported to the airport in Kahului. There you’ll catch a flight over to Hilo where your tour guide will meet you at the airport around 8:00 am. From here you’ll journey through Hilo, seeing and stopping at various places until the tour reaches the famed Rainbow Falls State Park on the edge of town.
The highlight of this tour is the many stops within Hawaii Volcanoes National Park to see an active volcano and craters of the past along Chain of Craters Road. See the steam vents, check out the destruction of the crater due to the last eruption. See how the landscape changes and get other great information in the learning center or the Visitor Center.
This tour also includes stops at a black sand beach, a lunch stop, scenic viewpoints, gardens, and more. Your guide will return you back to the airport in Hilo for your flight back to Oahu, where your driver will meet you at the airport to transport you back to your hotel. In all an 8 hour day on the Big Island of Hawaii.
