I am going to Hilo in two weeks. I've been searching the TA forums for the past week and haven't found what I want.
So we are arriving by plane from Honolulu and are staying 2 full days in Hilo. We won't have a car, so we are looking for tours.
We absolutely want to see the volcano as close as possible and hike it. We also want to see a black sand beach, and the akaka and rainbow falls (budget: approx. 100 US$ per tour).
How could we fit these excursions (without seeing the same place twice) and which tours do you recommend?
