Details

Kid Friendly: Yes. A car seat can be picked up with 48 hour notice and reimbursement of the rental fee.

Friendly: Yes.
A Parking Placard for the Handicap parking 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

Volcano Education VIP Tour with Waterfalls includes Photography


Volcanoes National Park is closed, so this tour has been going north instead for better air quality and to see more waterfalls, Waipio Valley, Tex's Drive-In, and more. We also try to see the ocean entry of the lava from a distance. As soon as a public area opens for lava viewing everyone booked on this tour will be contacted to see what modifications we can make to see the best of everything.

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. This tour can be completely customized because it's only private.

When you do the math even if you do not have 11 Passengers this is by far the best value for money and the memories.

Itinerary

A Recent Review of this tour

Jodi was by far, the best guide we have ever had! She was extremely welcoming, shared many interesting stories about the island and the people; accommodated our individual requests, took us to enjoy the local foods and made suggestions for what to see next day in Kona! Even came prepared with cold water, snacks and raincoats. In spite of the rainy weather which she had no control over, she made the day most enjoyable!
