We aren't exactly sure where you live, but we're thinking it's a safe bet that you can't just journey down a coastal road and explore a coffee or chocolate plantation whenever you'd like. When it comes to the idea of seeing where food comes from, there is a special beauty that accompanies the process, and Hawaii encapsulates this better than anywhere else. At the very least, we can promise you that this experience will be more enjoyable than visiting a butcher shop.

Your tour begins with a pickup and journey along Banyan Drive, which provides spectacular views of the Mauna volcanoes and Hilo Bay. A brief geological history will be provided along the way and stories of two major tsunamis that impacted the town of Hilo will set the landscape for the day. Continuing along the Hamakua Coast, you'll see the natural beauty that Hawaii is famous for. Your local guide will point out popular surfing spots, the best viewpoints for whale watching, and the exotic plants and flowers that line one of the most scenic routes in the area. A photo stop at Onomea Bay will provide the perfect chance to capture Hawaii in a picture.

Hawaii's breathtaking views might enhance your taste buds, but we assure you that the chocolate and coffee would taste just as good back home. After arriving at the farm perfectly nestled in the rolling hills of the Big Island, you will be escorted through two acres of cacao, coffee, and vanilla-growing heaven. This family-style farm will provide a breakdown on everything that goes into the growing and harvesting process with smile-inducing samples to wrap everything up!
