Experience this wonderful volcano tour on the island of Hawaii! Travel in luxury and comfort from Kona side over to the Hilo side of the island in our Mercedes Benz mini-coaches along Hawaii Island’s best short cut – Saddle Road. It includes a few short walks to and from several sites. Passengers travelling with a wheelchair or walker are more than welcome to join this tour.. Enjoy a gourmet picnic lunch at the base of the tallest volcano in the world – Mauna Kea! Enjoy views of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa’s ancient lava flows as the landscape switches from arid to tropical. Near Hilo, guests will have the chance to peek inside or explore more of Kaumana Caves, a Mauna Loa lava flow that nearly reached Hilo in the 1880s. From Hilo, journey to Puna in the lower east rift zone of Kilauea volcano; the site of Kilauea volcano’s most recent eruption. At McKenzie Beach State Park, explore black lava cliffs and beach. Experience living history and witness volcano goddess Pele’s newest creations. Next, head to the summit of Kilauea to take in the enormity of the giant crater, Halemaumau! Take in the stunning views of a crater that experienced thousands of earthquakes, many explosive rock falls and a draining of gigantic lava lake. For more than 100 days, the summit of Kilauea was the source of a violent eruption in the summer of 2018 that forced closure of the park and pushed millions of gallons of molten lava to the lower east rift zone in Leilani Estates. This international news making event destroyed over 700 structures and displaced thousands in the Puna district. Witness the changes due to this extraordinary event, stand next to steam vents, and trace the rim of the caldera while taking in the raw nature of Kilauea. Dine at the edge of Kilauea Caldera at the legendary Volcano House restaurant! On the return over Saddle Road, sip on a hot beverage while your guide navigates through the night sky pointing out stars, planets, and constellations under some of the clearest night skies on the planet.

We had a fantastic time....far better than expected



Shane Riley
Small groups ours had 12 including our guide Jim Carey. This was the best tour we have ever been on. Jim knows more about Hawai'i and Polynesian culture and lore then most locals. If you see something and you are wondering just ask him. He knows. Anyone can take this fantastic tour. There is some light hiking but if you don't want to venture far from the sprinter van you will be accommodated. Jim admittedly talks a lot and our group hung on his every word. He does not script the tour. It is based on what his clients would like to know. As you travel down Saddle Rd towards Hilo you will begin to go through the protocols. For the best experience I recommend you follow Jims instructions as he will guide you through this process. Good things come to those who follow the protocol. It also brings your group together. I don't want to give it all away. Take this tour and you might meet Uncle Jim. Aloha.



Jared Westercamp
This was the best tour I have ever been on. In fact we had to drive our car back to the location and that owner of this company sat in our car and gave us a personal tour guide until were able to get on the tour bus. Chris that owner is very knowledgeable about Hawaii, and was able to answer all questions. He went as far as even showing us plants and there uses for the natives. I highly recommend this tour anyone considering it. You will be impressed as well as dinner. Thank You.



Judy Keen
Took this tour Wednesday Sept 14th, 2016 Our tour guide was Jim Carey and he was fabulous! He went out of his way to make sure that this was a life time experience. You can tell by his detailed information and attitude that this job is his definite calling. Thanks Jim and Kailani Tours! You will always be first on my list!



Helen Goldberg
Our guide was Nick Phillips. It was an absolutely wonderful trip. Nick was so knowledgeable about the island. We were lucky to see flowing lava. Dinner At the volcano was also excellent. Nick even gave us recommendation is for wonderful restaurants on the island. I highly recommend the tour.



John Nordberg
This was the best tour we have ever been on. Not just Hawaii, but anywhere in the world. Nick Phillips was incredible. We could not believe the quality of the dinner we had and how nice the restaurant was. It was one of the best meals we had in Hawaii. I would give it ten stars if I could.
