This 12-hour tour brings the wonders and excitement of Hawaii's Big Island to life. The fully narrated 260-mile tour takes you along the Kona coast to view Kealakekua Bay and visit a Kona coffee plantation where you can sample the java. Then it's on to Volcanoes National Park to see the Kilauea Iki crater, steam bluffs, a fern tree jungle, and the Thurston Lava Tube. While in the park, don't forget to survey the stark, volcanic landscape from the observatory or stroll through the Jagger Museum. From here, it's onward to the Hamakua coast, driving past many cascading waterfalls along the way. The day wraps up with a trip to the Parker Ranch lands, home of the original paniolos (Hawaiian cowboys) in Waimea.|
