From Hilo Side - Volcanoes National Park Private Tour and More

 

We will begin the tour on the Hilo (east) side of Hawaii Island. This includes the Port of Hilo for cruise ship shore excursions, hotels, B&Bs and the Hilo Airport.  If you are staying on the Kona side of the island I recommend booking the Meet Me At The Volcano Tour.

 

This private tour of Volcanoes National Park offers you the ability to see and do the things you want to do in a relaxed manner, unlike a large tour bus. We will see the billowing Kilauea Volcano, steam vents,  drive down Chain of Craters Road with several scenic stops along the way. 

If you truly want an amazing experience, we can begin the tour at sunrise, which is the very best time to see the beauty.  Plus, being at the park before sunrise will give us the place to ourselves for a few hours. 

 

When finished at the volcano we can visit our famous black sand beach,  Rainbow Falls, and any other sights we can fit in according to your interests / desires / schedule. 

 

Let me show you the beauty of the Big Island of Hawaii!

What's included:  Entrance fees to Volcanoes National Park, bottled water and transportation to some spectacular sights.

 

What's extra:  Drinks / Snacks / Meals / Souvenirs, etc.

What to wear:  The weather can change quickly at the volcano so you may want to bring a light jacket and close toed shoes.

 

Meet up location:  We will begin the tour on the Hilo (east) side of Hawaii Island.
