    Great tour of island around Kona. Our tour was in a small van. There was a total of 8 people in the van plus the driver. Our driver was Josh and he did a great job. We visited a coffee plantation, an ancient burial grounds, Pu'uhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park and many other awesome sites. We really had a great time. A great way to see the Kona area.
