Does anyone know of a tour company that will do a day trip (not sunrise or sunset) up to the summit? I really want to go to the top of Mauna Kea and will only be in Kona for the day since I am on a cruise ship. I am having a hard time finding anything online that does not involved the sunrise/sunset option.
Or alternatively, my husband has thought about driving up it himself. Just worried about safety and damage to the rent car. Although he is used to driving mountain roads, however they are usually paved.
Any comments would be appreciated.
