We drive across the island on the much improved Saddle road now called Daniel K Inouye Hwy that takes us between the two massive Volcanoes on the Island, Mauna Kea & Mauna Loa. Experience elevation change and temperature change with spectacular stark scenery. We arrive in Hilo first stop is Rainbow Falls State Park (Waterfall).

Onomea Scenic Drive: Rated as the most Important scenic drive on the Big Island The Hamakua Coast Heritage Corridor. Drive along sea cliffs, through lush valleys and gulches, tropical rain forest, across small one lane bridges, a true taste of old Hawaii.
Hilo: The town suffered large Tsunamis in 1946 and 1960.

A Recent Review of this tour

Just wanted to let you know we were 100% satisfied with Big Island Tours. Rob gave us one tour and Jodi gave us another and we felt both were excellent. In the case of Jodi, the car did break down as to air conditioning, but she resolved the problem in a professional manner. As to Rob, particularly liked his presentation at the painted church wherein one could have just gone in, looked around and said "nice" but by the time he was done talking, it left an impression for me that will last a lifetime.
