Marvel at the beauty & uniqueness of the tropical rainforst side of the Big Island


You will experience the beauty & magic of this side/part of the Big Island, why it unique in the Hawaiian chain, and why I have chosen to live here. You will learn a lot about Hawaiian history, culture, the language, trees, fruits, flowers, birds, animals, and more. There will be many great photo ops. It will be a very educational, informative, interesting, fun, and memorable tour that you will remember & cherish the rest of your life.

Itinerary

In Hilo the highlights and choices are Banyan Drive, the Kamehameha Statue, & Rainbow Falls, which is nice but pales in comparison to Akaka falls which is up the Hamakua coast. From Hilo we either head north over the "singing bridge" up the spectacular Hamakua Coast, take the incredibly beautiful 4 mile Onomea scenic route along the tropical rainforest coast that has several one lane bridges, waterfalls, and the best botanical garden in Hawaii ($15 entrance fee) that goes down to beautiful Onemea bay which takes from 1 hour to 1-1/2 hours or take a free, short 600 ft. old Donkey Trail. Next is the fruit stand in Honomu on the way to Akaka Falls, one of the tallest, most beautiful waterfalls in Hawaii. Alternativealy after Hilo we head up to Volcano National Park to take in all the sites there. Given time, we will stop at the Orchid farm on the way back to Hilo as well at the Maunaloa Macadamia nut farm. The 3rd, and really my favorite option after Hilo is the breathtakingly beautiful are of Puna.

A Recent Review of this tour

What a GREAT day. This tour was fantastic. We even experienced two earthquakes. Laurence had the day very organized and there was absolutely nothing he did not know about Hilo. We got to visit places that the locals hung out and loved it. This was the best tour we have been on. Laurence is very easy going and made us feel relaxed in asking him questions and not hurrying us along if we wanted to stay longer at a site. He is the best!
