Best of Big Island and Volcanoes National Park

Join us on this magnificent Volcanoes National Park tour. This tour highlights some of the Big Island's most precious gems, such as rainforest waterfalls, black sand beaches, craters, lava tubes, and much more!

The first stop is at the Richardson Black Sand Beach, where sea turtles are usually spotted. The Black Sand Beach is a local favorite and is a great way to see how the ocean and volcanoes make fine black sand.

Next, you will pass through the historic town of Hilo and stop by a breathtaking 80 ft waterfall, Rainbow Falls. Once you leave Rainbow Falls, you will head over to the Liliuokalani Japanese Garden, where you will enjoy the pleasant scenery and trails.

Your next stop will be Big Island Candies, which was established in 1977. Big Island Candies manufactures and markets fine quality macadamia nut candies and cookies, using 100 percent Hawaii-grown macadamia nuts, Kona coffee, island eggs, real butter and high-grade chocolate. Since its founding, Big Island Candies has continuously introduced new and imaginative products that "wow" both the eyes and taste buds of its growing legion of fans.

You will then make your way to the summit of Kilauea volcano at the Volcanoes National Park, the most highly regarded and revered volcanic area on Earth. The park dramatically displays the results of 70 million years of volcanism, migration, and evolution - processes that thrust a bare land from the sea and clothed it with unique ecosystems, and a distinct human culture. The park highlights two of the world's most active volcanoes, Kilauea and Mauna Loa, and offers insights on the birth of the Hawaiian Islands and views of dramatic volcanic landscapes.

At the park, you will stop at the Visitor Center, see the highly acclaimed Jaggar Museum, and witness the spectacular Thurston Lava Tube, steam vents, sulfur banks, and fascinating scenic lookouts. No trip to Hawaii is complete without a trip to Volcanoes National Park.

We had an awesome time. We visited the volcano site one weeks prior to the eruption. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable in the history and culture of the Big Island, and the views were amazing! The tour bus was very clean and the ride to and from the park was very pleasant. I would definitely recommend.

We had a stellar tour (Best of Big Island and Volcanoes National Park). Our guide and driver was Donna, and she was both personable and informative. She gave us plenty of time at each stop, offered to take our pictures, and gave us a running commentary between stops. The bus (van) was spotless and well-maintained. I'm so happy that we chose this tour. We will look into Shore Excursion Group tours for future excursions!

Recently went on the Shore Excursion-Best of Big Island and Volcanoes National Park and it was an amazing experience. Our tour guide, Grace, was excellent. She was very informative and knowledgeable about the island and the park. She made sure that we were comfortable throughout the trip and answered all of our questions. The tour took us to some of the most beautiful and scenic spots on the island. Volcanoes National Park was breathtaking. We saw the Kilauea crater and the stem vents which were both very impressive. The highlight of trip was the lava tube which was an incredible experience. We visited the Rainbow Falls which was a sight to behold. Overall, I highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting the Big Island. It was well worth the money and Grace was excellent guide.

We were very happy with our experience on this shore excursion. The guide was very informative and kept us on schedule to see everything promised. I would like to make a suggestion if I could. We and many others did not enjoy our stop at the candy store. I would recommend leaving that off of the tour and find something else to fill that time that is more special to visitors while at Hilo.
