This tour was a good time for both my 8 year old and 15 year old Grandkids. The variety of activities kept both happy and ended in ice cream, so kudos for that.

I was picked up from hotel and they dropped us in Hanalulu airport early in the morning. There was one lady waiting at the Airport and handed over the boarding passes and told that there will be someone waiting for you to pickup when we arrive at Kona airport near baggage claim.
