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

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.
