Votre arrivée, au milieu d'un champ de lave, peut presque ressembler à un atterrissage sur la lune. La lave, aujourd'hui solidifiée, a créé les champs ondulés de vagues qui s'étendent presque aussi loin que l'horizon. Le long de la côte occidentale de l'île, le paysage change radicalement. Vous ferez un arrêt au Royal Kona Coffee au milieu de la région productrice de café. C'est un endroit remarquable rempli de beauté naturelle. Les luxuriants caféiers semblent fleurir parmi les autres feuillages de l'île. La région surplombe également Kealakekua Bay, offrant des vues spectaculaires sur ses eaux cristallines.
I had done a big island tour before, but went with friends this time. Didn't see as much as previous tour, despite flying from Honolulu for that tour. Also went to crater during daylight so the volcano activity was seen much less spectacularly
Driver was very knowledgeable, almost like listening to a university professor with a double degree in Hawaiian history and geology as he was telling about history and vulcanos. Very impressive. Talk about value for money! A great way to get a feeling for the island.
This experience was absolutely breathtaking from the moment we took off. The weather was a little iffy so we received a bonus with our pilot Greg O, taking us a different route. We saw waterfalls, hidden valley's, humpback whales, and the highlight of our excursion was the rivers of lava. It was well worth the price.

Our tour driver Lincoln was amazing! We did have a rainy day so we could not see the volcano. We went to a macadamia farm-free samples, coffee farm and Chocolate factory! Saw hot steam pockets coming out of the ground and the black Sand beach with lots of sea turtles! Lincoln gave a lot of history the whole trip. But remember to take a rain coat! It sprinkles or mist a lot!!
Our guide's name was Lincoln and he was amazing! He has 41 years of experience guiding this tour! So knowledgeable and friendly. We spent about 11 hours with him and he took good care of us. We stopped at Volcano National Park, the Hamakua Macadamia Nut Farm, Big Island Candies, Rainbow Falls, and had a nice buffet lunch on the west side of the island. He pointed out many points of interest and slowed down or stopped the bus for us to take photos. This tour was one of the highlights of our Big Island experience. We did it the first full day we were there and it gave us a flavor of the island and what it has to offer. A big thumbs up!
