Rainbow Falls, Akaka Falls, Waipio Valley Overlook

This tour is filled with many wonderful sights and sound of the beautiful island of Hawaii (Big Island).

Rainbow Falls is an impressive place to visit based on the amount of rainfall we receive. Just a mile upstream is the Boiling Pots and Waiale Falls that offers views that are spectacular.

We'll take a beautiful drive down the 4-mile scenic route along the coast and thru tropical rainforest. Akaka Falls is an amazing place where you can take a short walk along a paved pathway to see one of the most beautiful falls in all of Hawaii.

Waipio Valley is about an hour further up the Hamakua Coast with spectacular views. We will walk down to the area where we can view the amazing Waipio Valley below.

Let me show you the beauty of the Big Island of Hawaii!

I usually do not include a dedicated lunch stop on the tour because it takes so much time away from seeing other sights. If this is something you desire, we certainly can stop for lunch. Lunch can cost anywhere between $10 and $20 per person, depending on where we go. I do provide water and granola bars.

You are more than welcome to bring sandwiches and other snacks with you.

A Recent Review of this tour

Wonderful and most interesting tour Scott. We enjoyed a great tour of the north east side of Hawaii Island. Scott had a wealth of knowledge about Hawaii Island. He was most considerate of our needs and gave us as much time at scenic points that we wanted. Thank you Scott for an awesome day.
