Private Ultimate Kona

Many people are drawn to Kona for its beautiful beaches, but few realize the historical sites to be found here. In ancient times, Kona was regarded as the place to be, thanks to its enticing water and excellent weather. This city was the original capital and primary residence for King Kamehameha I, and home to other kings throughout the years.

Your time in Kona begins as you step into a comfortable, air-conditioned Mercedes Benz passenger van that will take you to some little known yet significant sites before heading down Ali'i Drive towards one of the oldest coffee farms in Hawaii.

Once at the farm you will take a tour of the grounds and enjoy a coffee tasting (non-coffee loving groups can visit a nearby cacao farm instead).

Continue to the Painted Church, famous for its stunning hand-painted interior, and receive a special token. From there you will make your way to Pu'uhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park and later to Kealakekua Bay with its monument to Captain Cook, who met a violent death in the bay in 1779.

Stop by an apiary or bee farm, to see how honey is made; alternatively, you can visit a vanilla farm.

Conclude your tour with what will be the highlight of your day at the Home of Turtles with the largest concentration of these special animals on the island.
