Full description

Enjoy a guided adventure starting with a stop at a Kona Coffee Farm. Walk through a lava tube and orchards with your guide to learn about the harvesting and milling process while sampling a warm cup of Kona-grown coffee.

Continue through the scenic view of the Kealakekua Bay and South Point, the southernmost point of the United States. Relax at Punalu’u Black Sand Beach to spot marine life, like Hawaii’s green sea turtles, from the shore.

Next, head to the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Drive on the Chain of Craters Road. Learn about volcanic eruptions and current and past lava flow sites. Visit the Kilauea Iki Lookout, Lava Tube, steam vents, Halema’uma’u Crater, and the crater rim trail.

After enjoying dinner at a nearby cafe, return to the park to view the lava glow at night and stargaze. Depending on weather conditions, observe stars, planets, galaxies, and more.

I did enjoy all the stops we made. Todd was very informative and congenial. There was a lot of information shared that day for each stop. Stating this is a half day trip is a bit misconceiving. We were told that we moved a little more quickly than other tours, and we did not get back to our starting point until 11:15 P.M. Made for a very long day.

Truly a once in a lifetime experience, well with the money. It is a long day but it is required to see all of the areas of the island on the tour. Aaron was unbelievably knowledgeable and was very kind and accommodating. I would recommend sticking with his schedule so you have the opportunity to see everything plus a little extra.

This tour is a great way to see the island and learn about the history of Hawaii. Our tour guide, Dreu, did an outstanding job of making sure we got the most out of the tour. He kept everyone entertained throughout the drive with historical facts and stories. We had a perfect night. We were able to see the lava glow in the crater and the stars were amazing! I would highly recommend!
