Home > Gecko Big Island Tours
Gecko Big Island Tours offers a series of guided tours on the Hilo side of the Big Island to view the volcano areas of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and surrounding regions. There is so much to see in the volcano park area and Gecko Big Island Tours breaks your tours down into manageable 'chunks'. If you are looking for a full day tour that can be arranged but if you'd like to limit the tour time to a half day of five hours or so that can be arranged as well. Tours can also be arranged to some of the amazing and spectacular giant waterfalls found in the Hilo area. You can also organize for a tour that visits the beautiful Hamakua Coastline of the Big island and stops for a spectacular 7 stage zipline adventure at the midway point.
The drive to the summit of Mauna Kea is one you'll never forget. It's hard to believe you're in Hawaii as you climb to 13,796 feet above sea level. Once at the summit you are afforded spectacular views of the horizon, Haleakala on Maui, Mauna Loa and Hualalai, and Mauna Kea the world's tallest mountain, rising over 32,000 feet from the ocean floor to its summit, which is considered by many Hawaiians to be the most sacred place in all the islands.
Your tour includes Rainbow Falls, a radiant 80 foot waterfall. You'll also drive through a macadamia nut orchard and visit a macadamia farm. Stop at Volcanoes National Park visitor center, Jagger Museum, Thurston Lava Tube, the steam vents and sulfur banks, scenic lookouts and enjoy a no host dinner served at the overlook of Halema'uma'u Crater.
The Kona Coffee and Chocolate Tour is a great way to explore all of Kona's highlights. This tour travels South to explore Kona's well known coffee farms, white sand beaches, a chocolate factory, Kealakekua Bay, the Painted Church, nicknamed because Father John painted the interior of the church with 3D depictions from the 1800's and much more! You also have the option to take time and snorkel at Kahalu'u Beach for about an hour (please remember your bathing suit and towel and a few dollars to rent snorkel gear from the vendors at the beach).
