  • Awesome experience! Knowledgeable tour guide (Michael). Beautiful scenery and activity well paced. 🥰

  • Learned. about the various plants, animals, and waterfalls formation and how they became part of this beautiful island. Our guide, Gary, was patient, passionate, and enthusiastic through the tour. He is a born teacher.

  • My husband, 7-year old son, and I had no idea what to expect, and were blown away by this amazing, beautiful adventure! Our guide (Justin) was very professional and extremely well-informed about the island's history. The approximate 2-mile hike through the rain forest was both visually stunning and physically achievable. This adventure was worth every penny. Do not leave Hawaii without treating your family to this adventure!!

  • This excursion was a great experience due to our wonderful guide Justin. He was so personable and informative but also laidback. We enjoyed every minute of our time. The places he took us were breathtaking and our boys loved swimming in the freshwater waterfall as well as riding off road in the Australian military vehicle. Also it was the perfect amount of time-still had most of the afternoon to swim at our resort. Definitely recommend!

  • This tour was great. Uncle Danny was our guide and he was amazing. He not told us about the history and culture of the island, but was a wealth of knowledge regarding the plants and animals on the island. The place Uncle Dan took us for lunch was amazing. It overlooked the Kohala Coast.

  • Great tour and tour guide! They took care of the little things like extra water, snacks, back packs, towels. Would love to do the waterfall again!

  • Excellent tour. Very informative and interesting. Very knowledgeable tour guide Mateo.

  • It was a,great trip.

  • The tour and sites were absolutely amazing. Our tour guide was great. Very knowledgable and funny too. It was just an amazing experience and if I'm ever on the big island again I won't hesitate to go again!!

  • We had a great time , tour guide was very friendly ,lunch was nice scenery was amazing highly recommend this tour

  • We rescheduled and did the Mauna Kea tour. Very enjoyable tour. I highly recommend the tour for anyone who wants a unique, educational, and enjoyable experiences. Jon, our tour guide did a GREAT job. He was very personable and also attentive to the needs of the those participating in the tour.

  • This was an adventure of a lifetime! It's an early wake up call while on vacation but it's necessary to get an early start since there is some driving to do up to the trail. Our guide (Mike) was fantastic and really fun to be with. He was friendly and helpful and made this a wonderful adventure! The trail was amazing and we snacked on the Strawberry Guava's which were ripe and juicy! The hike was challenging but well worth the sweat and muddy shoes! The natural, fresh water pool was cold and refreshing and a wonderful way to end our hard hike! The entire experience was a wonderful one. Well worth the money -- this is a first class organization all around!

  • What a wonderful day out - one of the Highlights of a Great trip to the Hawaiian Islands

  • Excellent adventure for me (older woman) and my 10 year old son! got a chance to eat wild fruit, and swim in waterfall, paths were a little challeging, but added to the "adventure".

  • We had a great time hiking and visiting various waterfalls, while enjoying our tour guide's vivid descriptions and history of the Island. Maverick was a great guide!
  • You get access to privately owned lands in this tour. The ride is rather bumpy through the rough terrain, but well worth it. The sights are beautiful and I don't think I'll be able to swim in such a pristine waterfall anywhere else!
  • This was an excellent tour and a real way of seeing the island. The tour guide was very well informed and took us in a four wheel drive vehicle where there are no roads. We then proceeded to hike to a couple of waterfalls. I gave this tour four stars instead of five because not everyone might be able to handle the hike especially if there are ambulatory issues involved as we hiked on somewhat primitive paths with overgrown tree roots. We were rewarded, though, with a dip in one of the waterfalls along the route. The tour includes a box lunch overlooking high cliffs with the ocean beating against them, spectacular! This tour is a great way for the adventurous to explore the islands.

  • It was a nice small group....walk was not difficult at all...Tour guide was very informate but also very fun to be with. Thanks so much for a great time
