Details

Kid Friendly: Yes. Booster seats available for rent I can pick up if you need me to, needs to be arranged with 48 hour notice minimum.

Friendly: Yes.
A Parking Placard for the Handicap spots cut the walking in half. I have had many with canes and walkers do this tour successfully. The lava tube with the stairs is the only issue. People must be able to get in and out of a Sprinter van with a stool.

Maximum travelers: 10

Fully Custom Volcano education, Waterfalls and other must see stops


The Ultimate experience, narrated private tour, Air Conditioned, Water and Snacks provided. Free photography is included with the tour and uploaded to our photo sharing cloud for you.

This tour has been modified due to current volcano events and air quality concerns, we try to see the lava ocean entry as long as visibility permits. When a lava viewing area becomes available that option will be given and all people contacted.

With this Tour you see the Best Hilo, Akaka Falls, Waipio Valley, Rainbow Falls, Queen Liliuokalani Japanese Gardens the largest Japanese Garden outside of Japan. (Hilo suffered large Tsunamis in 1946 & 1960). Black sands beach and possible turtles! Other optional stops see below.

The great thing about Private Tours is you have the ability to spend more times seeing what you want. If there are things you want to see please contact me. I am happy to modify tours based on your needs.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: I will meet you at the Hilo Port, Hilo airport or any other location in Hilo or East side.

For customers flying in Hilo airport code is ITO. It is a popular day excursion from other islands. Please allow the full tour time plus time for lunch if you want to stop for lunch. Then allow an hour for TSA check.

End location: You will be taken to where ever you were picked up or any other destination of your choice in the Hilo area.

Duration: 6 hours

Staying longer at some places does tend to make the tour longer, I will give everyone in the group time guidelines at stops to keep us on track. If you want to stay longer some places we can do so but that means less time at other places. Total time 6-7 hours.

A Recent Review of this tour

We had a great time with Jodi. We had to make new plans since Volcano National Park was closed, but we enjoyed all the sights that she took us to. Her husband, also a tour guide, met us at Akaka Falls with fresh cut pineapple. What a treat. The van was perfect. Very clean and roomy for our group of 7. Much better than the large tour buses. I will recommend Jodi and tours by locals to anyone looking for a tour group. I plan to check them out on my next trip as well.
