Volcano & Highlights of Hilo Adventure
Visit both Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and the city of Hilo on this small group guided tour, seeing Kilauea Caldera and exploring the volcanic formations along the Chain of Crater's Road. Thereafter, you'll visit a local chocolate factory for samples and coffee tasting before seeing the spectacular Rainbow Falls and a black sand beach.
Explore volcanic formations of the world renowned Kilauea volcano on a guided journey to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Experience volcanic steam vents while taking in extraordinary views of Kilauea caldera where the summit caldera has grown in size and drastically changed the landscape. Optional hikes are available based on the group's interest to experience the lava fields, an ancient lava tube and the native rain forest. You'll then view other volcanic formations along Chain of Crater's Road and witness the raw power of the volcano and the beauty and destruction that it leaves behind.
Thereafter you'll take a scenic drive through downtown Hilo and stop at a chocolate factory to sample locally grown coffee and Big Island treats. Then, continue on to Rainbow Falls, one of Hilo's most famous waterfalls.
Conclude the day with a trip down the gorgeous Keaukaha coastline. Along the way, visit a beautiful black sand beach, home to Hawaiian green sea turtles. Book this tour to a true treasure of the Hawaiian islands!

My partner & I enjoyed our excursion on the island of Hilo very much. Unfortunately, since the volcano was active, we were not allowed to see it up close, but our guide, Jill, did everything possible to make our trip as informative and interesting as possible. Small group, delicious lunch, and luxurious van made this tour one of our favorites on the islands

What a wonderful day! Jill, our guide, was a local who knew the Hilo area very well. She was kind and provided us with a wonderful experience. She was able to pack in a lot, but we never felt rushed. There were only 4 people in our group so we got a lot of individual attention from her. It would be hard to pick the highlights because it was all so good. Seeing Rainbow Falls, walking near the volcano, maybe the chocolate factory, or just hearing the guides story's of what it was like growing up on the island, if I had to choose, would have been my favorites. I would definitely recommend this excursion!
