  • This tour was amazing for the entire family! We had grandma to our 7 year old and there was something for everyone. Dominique was so patient with our little one asking a million questions and he was very knowledgeable with the flora, fauna, Hawaiian names, and history. It was nice they had raincoats just in case and the lunch spot provided very tasty food as well as beautiful scenery. We loved the all day experience that gave us a taste of the island from the desert to the jungle!

  • Catie (our tour guide) was amazing. The tour itself was incredible, but Catie made it even more so. I Would recommend this to anyone going to the big island. 5/5

  • Clare did an excellent job describing tectonic activity and nature conservation efforts. At each location she provided detailed explanations of the natural formations, wildlife, and culture of Hawaii. She was an animated host and showed passion for her work. If I go to Hawaii again, then I would look to request another excursion with her.

  • Claire our-guide was very knowledgable and entertaining through out the day

    Thanks for a great day , Claire

  • We had such a wonderful time on the tour yesterday. Claire was amazing - she should be hired by National Geographic or Smithsonian tours (I’ve been on a Smithsonian one in Africa and I liked her style better!), and we had a great group who became friends by the end of the evening. Tour highlights green sea turtles with one called Grandma, fresh coconut on the beach, lava fields and crawling through really cool lava tube, and a group and guide who rolls with the punches. Thanks for a great day

  • This was a very thorough tour of the island and covered many different ecosystems. We were fortunate to have good weather throughout. Our guide was Clare who was extraordinarily informative and knowledgeable about the island from geology to geography and topography to biology and ecology, economics, history and local lore and legend. We learned a ton! She was so pleasant, engaging and enthusiastic as well as entertaining. You could not have asked for a better guide. Late January or February is probably the best.

  • We are Hawaii residence that wanted a better understanding of the Big Island and we sure did. It was all we wanted and much more. Our guide, Bryce, was incredibly knowledgeable about a broad range of topics and truly a pleasure to be with. The group was small which was nice. The vehicle was clean and comfortable. The stops were all interesting and Bryce added additional stops as time permitted. Those interested in this tour should know that it is a long day and will involve a good deal of walking, however the physical activity is relatively short with driving breaks between.
    Great tour!

  • We were a party of 9 and our tour guide, Katie, was patient, kind, and attentive. It truly is a wonderful experience and lunch and dinner were delicious!

  • This tour was amazing!!! It was definitely worth it. Our tour guide Katie was the best, and was so knowledgeable on just about everything having to do with the big island. She answered any questions she had, and really gave us quite the history lesson! What a way to really see the big island. This tour was everything and more. Me and my husband highly suggest this tour. The coffee farm tour was great as well with a tour-guide that totally knew his stuff as well. The entire tour from start to finish was magnificent and hands down from any tour we've ever done Katie is top notch and so is this all day tour of the big island.

  • Just a wonderful experience to see first hand the beauty of this island.

  • This was the best tour I have been on. Great day with a wonderful guide Preston.

  • My daughter and I loved this tour. Our tour guide Dominic was very knowledgeable and friendly. The food was good, especially the lunch at a bakery. Seeing the glow of the volcano lava at night was amazing! As was the lava tube.

  • We have 2 kids age 14 and 8. Everyone enjoyed this excursion. Highlight of our trip! Katie was on point with snacks, drinks and hospitality. Amazing experience! I researched lots of trips and this one exceeded our expectations.

  • this tour was very interesting and fun made even better by your tour guide Katie who shared lots of information and history
    of the Island. Having Katie do the driving on the narrow roads was a blessing especially after dark coming home from the volcano.
    Visiting the wide variety of activities kept the entire family from teenagers to grandmother entertained.

  • Terrific tour, facilitated by an accommodating, knowledgeable guide. Photo opportunities unparalleled.

  • Amazing tour. I highly recommend this for anyone who wants to see the volcano up close and personal. I thought our tour guide was highly professional and interesting.

  • Great tour. Guide Katie was excellent. Very friendly and informative. Lots of walking and a very long day but totally enjoyed it.

  • Highly recommended Tour !!
    Our family had a great time and we are glad to have Dominik as our guide. He is very knowledgable, caring, attentive to our individual needs and always take the extra effort to ensure we are having a good time.

  • this trip was incredible. everything was great.

  • John was a wonderful and funny tour guide!

  • John was a wonderful and funny tour guide!

  • Katy At Hawaiian Adventure Guides was fantastic, the tour went ahead with just my wife and myself.
    The late night viewing of kilaua was the highlight.

  • Exceeded our expectations! Katie was the best guide!

  • i would recommend this tour to anyone who hasn't been on the big island before. You get to see a lot of the island during the tour and Katie the tour guide was amazing. She was very informative and had a great sense of humor. It was a really good day.
