Take a break from the overcrowded beaches in Hilo and discover lesser known attractions in the area. The tour is great for travelers who are short on time and want to get off the beaten path. Comfortable transportation takes you from your hotel to a family owned farm where you can sample fruit and macadamia nuts. Continue onwards to a 120-foot (36-meter) waterfall and swim in its pool.

We weren’t able to do sunrise tour of Mauna Kea due to road closure but the waterfall tour in Hilo was great!! Kids and adults loved swimming under a waterfall plus seeing a working farm was cool. Strongly recommend!

This was a really neat experience. We combined this tour with a Hilo helicopter tour through Paradise Helicopters since those two companies work closely together (which ended up saving us money too!). Our guide Ken was very knowledgeable, so we learned a lot about the area from
