Spend the day enjoying an adventure in paradise during this 6-hour shore excursion exploring the giant volcanoes, beautiful waterfalls, rare plants and tasty treats of the Big Island. If you’re looking for a great way to sample all the amazing scenery Hawaii has to offer, this is a great way to do it.

Start your trip from the Hilo Port in the morning, heading to Hilo for a glimpse of this historic town before moving on to Rainbow Falls, a picturesque waterfall that looks straight out of a movie. After Rainbow Falls, your adventure really kicks into high gear as you journey into Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and up to the summit of its massive Kilauea Volcano.

You’ll have a chance to peer into the smoking expanse of this stark volcanic site before heading to the famous Thurston Lava Tube to walk through a volcanic cave. Before leaving the park, spend time at the Jaggar Museum, where you can learn the science and history behind this fascinating geological area.

Continue your day by stopping to view some of the Big Island’s most beautiful rare orchids at the Akatsuka Orchid Garden, where more than 500 of this gorgeous plants (some worth more than $20,000!) are on display. If you’re feeling hungry, have no fear because your next stop is at one of the state’s largest producers of macadamia nuts. Learn about the harvesting of these uniquely Hawaiian nuts, and then sample some tasty snacks or food such as sandwiches, hot dogs or coconut macadamia nut ice cream.

Cap off your epic Hawaiian adventure by stopping at Richardson Black Sand Beach. This unique dark-colored seashore is produced by the slow erosion of the local volcanic rock. Keep your eyes peeled on the beach for the resident sea turtles that like to hang out on shore. You’ll be returned back to the Hilo Port in the afternoon.

This was a once-in-a-lifetime tour since Kilauea was erupting and we experienced two earthquakes-- one 5.5 and the other an astounding 6.9 which lasted about 15 seconds. The Jagger Museum was closed and we only had a brief time at the Kilauea overlook before rangers closed the area and soon after the entire park. We enjoyed the visit to the Mauna Loa macadamia factory, the exotic orchid nursery and the beautiful black sand beach. Our guide was most concerned about our safety on this unpredictable day and on making sure that we had the tour we were expecting and he delivered on both counts.

Tour was unorganized from the beginning. Had Tourguide Chris who seemed to be confused and shared just a little information about the national park etc. Once you got to a spot he told the guests how much time they have, rush, take quick photo and get back in the van. Other tourguides guided the guests and shared so much information so we sometimes sticked to other tour guides during the stops just to gather information.
This tours was just hop ond hof off take picture tour with no cultural, emotional or informative character. Not worth the money. Maybe Chris was the wrong guide and other guide of same company would have done it better.

This tour was excellent. Same as what the ship was providing except for a much better price. Our guide did a great job showing us part of his island and was proud of it's sights. We saw several views of the volcano, lava tube, national park visitor center, ocean park and beaches with black sand, orchid farm display and sales center, opportunity for lunch and snacks, etc. We are always pleased with Viator's offerings and this was no exception.

Our Hilo excusion was fabulous. We were met by our guide Edmund at the ship's port who escorted our small group to his air conditioned van. He shared the history of the island with us as we drove to Volcanoes National Park and Rainbow Falls. The walk through the lava tube was very interesting. Stops along the tour included a macadamia nut farm, orchid farm and various other sites of interest. Edmund was extremely helpful with recommendations and shared his wealth of knowledge with us. He was an excellent guide with us being a small group. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Hilo for the first time. Well done!

We really enjoyed the 6 hour tour. Edmond our driver, was very informative about every stop on the tour and also about every day life on the big island.The volcano tube walk was good but we really liked getting up close to the giant sea turtles.We would recommend this tour to our friends.
