Discover a side of the Big Island that very few get to experience, traveling the green landscape of the Kohala area on a day-long adventure with stops at iconic locations such as Waipio Valley Lookout, where steep slopes on all sides give way to sweeping taro fields backed against the sea, and the Hamakua Macadamia Nut Factory, where you'll have the chance to learn about one of Hawaii's most cherished agricultural products. This tour includes a stop for lunch at Merriman's Restaurant, a place revered by food enthusiasts as the birthplace of Hawaii Regional Cuisine.
