I worked at a major hotel on the Big Island of Hawaii as a concierge. I know the best tour companies on the Island. I also know all the best driving tours and restaurant spots. After we secure a date for your ceremony, I would be happy to help in your Island planning.
Tour companies will pick you up at your location*, and drive you to Volcano National Park. You can choose to go during the day, evening, or both. The guides are well versed in Volcano areas, and also will point out various sites along the way. Meals, snacks, and drinks provided. Caution: These tours are 11-12 hours long from the Kona side, so be prepared for that.
I will provide you with a self-guided annotated map of the Big Island. I will review the best day trips for you, whether it is Volcano, waterfalls, black beaches, or all of them. My information also includes the best places to eat along the way.
This is really the best way to see the island in the least amount of time. One or two hour trips from Waikoloa (Volcano, waterfalls, or both), and one hour trips from Hilo (Just to Volcano). Please don’t book these before consulting with me. I know the best ones, and work to get you the best pricing.
Imagine being out on the breathtaking pacific when your boat gets up close and personal with a hump back whale! Also the Big Island is home to world class snorkeling. I can direct you to the best vendors or the local spots so you can go on your own.
One of the secret gems on this Island is Waipio Valley. As of this writing, the only way you will see it is on this exciting ride. You get your own ATV*, and you and your group head out for an exhilarating ride around the top of Waipio Valley. This is all private land, and the only way you will see the Valley. You also will get to jump into an ancient pond that was once used only for royalty. Drinks and snacks included.
I am available to do private tours, as you would like. Insurance regulations require using your vehicle.
I know my way around a knife and fork, and have explored all sections of the island for the best fare. Just ask, I love talking food.
