Discover the sights of the Big Island on this guided day trip from Oahu. Inside Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, a UNESCO-listed site, hike along a crater rim, step inside a lava tube and witness the glowing red embers of Kilauea Volcano. Walk on Hilo’s black sand beach, see the misty Rainbow Falls, stroll through Akatsuka Gardens and snap a pic of a $20,0000 orchid. This Oahu Volcano tour includes a visit to Mauna Loa Macadamia Nut Factory, where you’ll learn first-hand how the nuts are roasted to golden perfection.
After early morning hotel pickup in Waikiki (if option selected), you’ll fly from Oahu to the Big Island of Hawaii for a full day packed with beautiful sights. Throughout the tour, learn about the history and geology of the Big Island from your guide's informative commentary, before returning to Oahu. See
