What You Can Expect
Head next to see Father Velghe’s paintings inside St. Benedict’s Painted Church. This Belgian-born priest created the three-dimensional works of art in 1842, displaying the stories of biblical heroes for parishioners who couldn’t write or read.
Then, learn the process behind the region’s famous coffee beans at Royal Kona Coffee. Sip a flavorful cup of Kona joe as you look out on views of Kealakekua Bay. Your tour will conclude with drop-off back at your port.

The Historical Refuge Park is a must see and very relaxing. Most interesting was St Benedicts's Painted Church. Imagine a priest sent to this side of the island not knowing how to communicate with people then painted murals so they could understand him.
Very informative and enjoyable.
Great trip - just as advertised.
Working with Viator for any of my shore excursions has been a pleasure.
Excellent trip, thoroughly enjoyable. Honaunau was both beautiful and fascinating. Driver Dean was very pleasant.
Very interesting trip
Perfect way to spend the morning in Kona.
The tour was very informative and the sites were interesting. We finished in 3 and 1/2 hours and it was booked as a 4 hour tour so I think we could have spent a little more time at some locations especially the National Park as there was an interesting self guided tour but we had to rush through it. Our guide was very knowledgeable.
very good knowledgeable guide
