Highlights

  • Day trip (destination A to B)
  • Round-trip airfares
Leave Oahu behind for a day to experience the spectacular and mysterious beauty of the Big Island of Hawaii. The Big Island is blessed with stunning landscapes, including volcanoes and rain forests, and this is the best way to see it all. Round-trip airfare from Honolulu to Kona is included. A tour guide will meet you at the Honolulu airport to make sure you catch your flight on Hawaiian Airlines; then you can relax on the 45-minute flight.

You’ll head out on a luxury minibus along the south coast of the island – the scenic drive will keep your eyes glued to your windows. You’ll have between 15 minutes to one hour at each of the following stops.

Kealakekua Bay:
Catch amazing Hawaiian views of the coast, and ask your guide about Captain Cook.

Volcanoes National Park:
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.

Jagger Museum:
You can watch films of past eruptions and current volcano activity at this free, hands-on museum.


Big Island Candy Company:
Established in 1977, Big Island Candy manufactures and markets high-end macadamia-nut candies and cookies. You’ll get a free tour, complete with Kona coffee and samples.

When the day is over, you will have literally circled the Big Island. You’ll be driven back to the Kona airport for your flight to Honolulu.

excellent trip wish we could stay longer

Reviewed by: Ora C, July 2013

Tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and highly entertaining. This tour does have a very early start from Oahu (3 am pickup) so expect to be completely wiped out by the time your plane returns. We had the 8 pm flight as was totally sleeping in the airport by the end. Another gotcha.. 2 pina colado drinks at the big island airport will run you $30 so beware.
