Ultimate Customizable Big Island Adventure for those that want to see it all


This Circle Big Island Private small group Tour will create memories that will last forever. This tour is for the person who wants to see as much as possible. Volcanoes National Park is now reopened so that is obviously a must see stop!

There are limited roads here and we have to drive around Volcanoes, this tour can be customized.

Included stops for both (not in order):
1. Pu'uhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park (the Place of Refuge).
2. The Painted Church
3. Popular turtle beach (depends on which way we go on which beach)
4. Rainbow Falls
5. Volcanoes National Park (included stops: Visitor center, steam vents, crater, more)
6. Several things to see in Hilo

Itinerary

The itinerary is not in order. You will see both sides of the island, each is beautiful and unique, "Circle Island" is kind of a misname because you can't do the whole island in a day, only half at a time. If it didn't get dark it would be possible to do everything but you can't see anything in the dark.

* View the Town of Hilo see where the 1946 and 1960 Tsunami's hit. Liliuokalani Japanese Gardens 30 acres of splendor overlooking Hilo bay
* Rainbow Falls
* Black Sand Beach at Punalu'u
* Pu'uhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park the Place of Refuge. The most intact Pu'uhonua (native Hawaiian Heritage site in all the Islands)
* Volcanoes National Park
* The Painted Church
* Punalu'u Bakery

Meeting Point + Tour Duration

Meeting Point Options: Hotel, Address or Intersection, Monument/Building, Suggested by Guide: Anywhere in Hilo, if people want to drive over from the other side of the island for this tour the best starting place to meet is Walgreens in Hilo. I can pickup at any residence or hotel in Hilo. For the airport pickups we have been meeting a coulple blocks away, people just taxi/Uber over, we can drop off at the airport but not pickup.

Duration: 9 hours

We cover a lot in one day and it often ends in 9-10 hours, but the idea of this tour is for you to experience the very essence of the Big Island. If you need to keep the tour to 9 hours we can do that as well.

Transportation

11 Passenger Mercedes Sprinter Van with air-conditioning and DVD media, since this is a private tour you have the van to yourself. We can hold 11 passengers plus a driver, the price is for the whole van.

A Recent Review of this tour

Jodi was a great tour guide for our first visit to the Big Island. We learned so much about the history and landscape of the Big Island . We got to taste some local foods and had some great Kona coffee on our coffee farm tour. We learned all about volcanoes and lava flows and even walked through a lava tube. We saw beautiful vegetation and got to see green sea turtles at the black beach and rare Nenes in the national volcano park and so much more. Thanks Jodi for a great 2 days. Elaine, Tom, Linda & John
