See the Big Island of Hawaii’s stunning beauty on a full-day Grand Circle tour from Oahu. You’ll fly from Oahu to the Big Island and circle the island to see Volcanoes National Park, beautiful beaches, rain forests and more. Round-trip airfare from Honolulu and all entrance fees are included.
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.
On the scenic, historical and cultural land tour, you’ll enjoy live narration by your expert driver guide on a luxury mini bus. The recently updated itinerary includes a visit to Royal Kona Coffee’s headquarters, Punalu‘u black sand beach, and lunch at local hot spot Lava Rock Cafe. Enjoy views of Hilo Bay and Mauna Kea.
After lunch, it’s onto Big Island Candy Company, the home for exquisite chocolate and mac nut treats and then a stop at not one, but two waterfalls – Rainbow and Akaka Falls! On the way back to Kona, stop at Hamakua Macadamia Nut to see where the mac nuts are roasted to perfection.
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. **Due to the recent and evolving volcanic activity on the Big Island of Hawaii, the itinerary is subject to change without notice effective May 1, 2018 until further notice.
