Overview

Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park is a blockbuster sight on the Big Island, but reaching the park from the Hilo port on your own can be time consuming. With this driving tour, save hours with port pickup and head straight to the park’s highlights, including the steam vents and Kilauea Caldera overlook. This leaves enough time to visit the Akatsuka Orchid Gardens, Hilo Coffee Mill, and Mauna Loa macadamia farm.

  • See a number of top sights on the Big Island in just hours by coach

    The oral history of sites was eloquently describe by our tour guide, Leo. She told wonderful stories of the history of the island including the mythology of Pele respected by islanders. The goddess Pele seems real in the islander lives. It was great for my child see how incredibly land developed by nature coupled with respect for the land in association with the rich Hawaiian culture.

    Aloha Amy, I am so pleased that you folks came along for the day. I am honored to have been able to share my island home with you, your daughter and your friends. I hope the girls took home a better grasp of volcanoes and the rain forest. I had an awesome time on the road. Mahalo for choosing Malahini Tours. Leo

    Volcanoes from Hilo

    Mount Kilauea was amazing and the lava tubes were incredible. I’m glad we had a guide, Leia, who took us straight to the best spots. Leia also took us to a local coffee mill, by the local farmers’ market and dropped us back in Hilo. Unfortunately, the orchid farm was closed (covid), as was the macadamia nut farm, which sounds like it may be a permanent closure. Had those been open, it would have been 5 stars

    Aloha folks, I apologize for the delayed response. I’m so glad you folks decided to choose Malahini Tours and I could show you a decent time. I am happy to say, that the Macadamia factory is going to be reopening soon. Renovations have held them up for quite a while. I hope to hear from you folks or even see you folks return to Hawaii. Again, Mahalo nui loa fo choosing Malahini Tours.

    Aloha Nancy, I apologize for the delayed response. I have decided to get on the road more often since I had the opportunity to show you folks around and I do love it. I still hope that you folks return to the big island as there is still much to see. Big Island, small communities. I thank you folks again for choosing Malahini Tours.

    Kimo is the best tour guide EVER

    , Feb 2020
    KIMO ROCKS! Best tour guide EVER. Lovely person and so fully of island history and tours that even locals were asking him questions! Kimo went above and beyond to the point of allowing us to add onto our excursion. He knew so much about volcanos and kings ... oh goodness I could go on forever about this gem of a tour guide. He also made sure we stayed hydrated. Seriously- he made our vacation. I’m not lying. I’ll never forget him. Thank you our friend Kimo 🥰

    Aloha DawnA_P, I am so glad to hear that Kimo has made your time on in Hilo as “Grand as can be”. I hope all is well in this time of safety and wellness. We hope that you return to Hilo and join us as the past few months had yet led us to new change. Malama Pono (Take care).

    A Wonderful Mountain View Town Visit
    Dan_D
    , Feb 2020
    Our drive around visit to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park with Malahini Tours exceeded all expectations. Driver Dan was wonderful, full of local insights, Hawaiian language tutorials, and legends. Well worth the price!! The tour included Hilo Coffee Mill where we learned about growing and roasting great Java and Mauna Loa Macadamia Corp where we sampled several flavored varieties of the nuts and learned how they are processed with minimal waste. We also stopped at Akatsuka Orchid Garden where they've developed thousands of new orchid varieties. While there, our driver Dan provided fresh-cut pineapple and lychee for lunch.

    Mahalo for choosing Malahini Tours. We're glad that you folks enjoyed the Volcanoes National Park and added stops of the Big Island. We hope that you return to visit more of the island, whether it be the more active volcano sites or the Majestic waterfalls.

    Kimo, our driver/guide was great. Very knowledgeable and personable. He took us to many interesting sites, particularly the Volcano site. I believe we had a fairly unique tour of the latest fault area. Kimo's running dialogue throughout the day made this tour one of the most enjoyable that we have experienced.
