The Grand Circle tour includes admission to the park. Built in 1916, the park features the results of 70 million years of volcanic activity, migration and evolution. See the Kilauea Iki crater, Thurston Lava Tube and the steam bluffs. Bring a light sweater or jacket to wear here.
You can watch films of past eruptions and current volcano activity at this free, hands-on museum.
This is where the US Geological Survey monitors volcanic activity using a variety of technological and scientific data. You’ll be fascinated by what they know.
Additional stops on the tour include an orchid and anthurium nursery, a drive through Parker Ranch’s gentle hills and a view of flowing waterfalls along the gorgeous Hamakua Coast.
This was a great tour and the tour guide, Cousin Greg, was very informative. The bus was quite comfortable. The price of the tour was excellent compared to other tours we have taken around the world. We learned alot about the island and saw thing we probably would have missed if we drove the island by ourselves
This was an absolutely wonderful experience. Don't miss it! Our driver named Sal was so knowledgeable of the Big Island history. Nine stops from the volcanoes, coffee plantation, nut factory etc. Caution, it is a very long day. It is very difficult to take pictures out the bus windows because of the mirror reflections from the other side. Click quick from straight ahead! Would do it again in a heartbeat.
