Hilo Waterfalls Small Group Tour: Burgers, Waipio Overlook, Waterfalls, Saddle Road

Food ‘n’ Falls

A delicious way to spend a day in Hawaii! Waterfalls, a burger, incredible views, education, and fun! The luscious countryside stretches before us as we head to Waimea and one of the most amazing burger joints in America! Local beef, veggies, and buns start our day the right way. Not a meat eater? We get it, there are some yummy vegetarian options (gluten free options too) like a mushroom burger or taro burger. 

The beautiful views of Waipio valley from the overlook are next. Get ready for some interesting stories about the history of this valley. Sample some portuguese donuts (Malasadas) and continue to Akaka falls to see a towering waterfall cascading into a deep pool. Your guide will point out native and non-native plants on your short walk (20 min). 

Let’s stop at a fruit stand to try some local fruit that are in season like apple banana, lychee, rambutan and white pineapple to name a few. Our last waterfall of the day is the picturesque Rainbow falls! We will walk (5 min) to one of the largest Banyan trees on the island. A scenic drive to Liliuokalani Gardens and Moku Ola (Coconut Island) will be a great way to finish our visit in Hilo. 

We travel back to the west side of the island on the famous Saddle Road (Daniel K. Inouye Hwy) that climbs up to a high lava desert at 6,600 ft and cuts between the 2 largest volcanoes in Hawaii (Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea). At higher elevations we are able to see colder climate zones and vast native Ohia forests. Your guide will bring you to your accommodation where you will have time to go to dinner, a luau, or get ready for your flight. A fun and educational adventure in Paradise.

Transportation from Kona or Waikoloa are included. Kona Airport transportation is $10 extra.

Frequently Asked Questions
The best way to find out is to make a request. Availability here changes constantly. We can tell you something is available and then 5 minutes later someone else books and its not available anymore. If you make a request and your activity is not available, then you will not be charged. No hassles, no worries!
H Tours Hawaii is a "one stop shop" for all the best activities in the Hawaiian Islands. Since we work with many providers, reservations are necessary. WE HIGHLY recommend making reservations, as many activities are at a discount when you reserve in advance. Some providers even charge higher for those "walking in" because they know chances are you're not going to walk away. Finally, a reservation ensures you have a space on the tour. Trust us you don't want to spend aso much time and money to come to Hawaii and then miss out on an activity because they were booked out!
Choose the tour you are interested in, click the red “Book It” button adjacent to the tour information, and complete the booking form.
While we can usually accommodate most last-minute bookings, we highly encourage those that are checking out our website far in advance to book 2-3 weeks prior to desired date. You never know if there's a convention, special event, or an increase in overall visitors in town, and it would be a shame if the activities that you want to do are sold out because you waited until the last minute. Basically, if you know you want to do it, just book it!
Most companies have a set of centrally located hotels that they do pick ups from. This makes the pickup process short so you can start the tour as soon as possible!
Gratuity is never required but if you enjoyed your experience, a tip is always greatly appreciated!
