  • Dreu was an outstanding guide. He provided an enormous amount of interesting detail about the geology and history of this island.

  • Our tour experience was spectacular, especially because of our tour guide Kai. He provided so much extra information about the Big Island and historical events that it made the tour come alive. We enjoyed the places we visited, but the tour commentary is what made the trip complete. It was also really great that we almost had a personal tour because there were only four of us in the van. By the way, did I happen to mention that Kai was great!

  • Guide was very knowledgeable, nice, caring, polite. Enjoyed it a lot.

  • Trip was excellent--docent was very knowledgeable about all we saw. Went out of his way to provide for wants/wishes of those on trip.

  • This was one of my favorite activities

  • This tour was amazing!

  • Very good tour - a lot depends on the weather- since part of the tour gets close to Hilo where it almost always rains everyday.

  • Nick was our guide/driver who was very personable and knowledgeable. Enjoyed the National Park - Royal Grounds most of all - lot of history and Nick was certainly able to explain it. Saw turtles sunning on the beach as well. Thanks Nick for a great day and the lunch!

  • Kind of mixed on this one, some stops were good some were just ok.

    Kaloka-Honokohau park and Puuhonua o Honaunau were educational and interesting.

    The bee farm was more there for tourists than an actual bee farm. The part we saw was little more than a gift shop and a few hives setup for demonstration. Presumably there was a much larger real operation somewhere else.

    The coffee farm was a good mix of actual groves and production. The tour was run by one of the employees there and good.

    Our tour guide was excellent at presenting content both on the van and with us at each stop.

    This wasn't great, but just ok. It's a bit pricy for what you see.

  • Our guide for the day, Kala, was very informative. The tour is long, with lots of stops. Wear good walking shoes! We did the tour on the next to last day of our visit and we were worn out due to the length. Maybe best to do this tour early in your trip.
