Fantastic tour, great sunset and the stars just unbelievable
Great tour guide
EVERYONE REALLY ENJOYED THE TOUR..FOR WHAT IT WAS...THE GUIDE DID A SUPER JOB EXPLAINING EVERYTHING....
.I WAS VERY, VERY, DISAPPOINTED THAT THEY NEVER GOT TO ENTER THE BUILDINGS TO SEE THROUGH THE TELESCOPES...THAT IS THE IMPRESSION I WAS GIVEN WHEN I SPENT 1,300.00 ON A GREAT TOUR THAT INCLUDED THE OBSERVATORY BUILDING BEING ENTERED and THEN GETTING TO LOOK THROUGH THEIR HUGH TELESCOPES....JANET HILL

Enjoyed the views on this tour while the tour guide did the driving!
Our driver was very knowledgeable and made our experience one to remember. He had a lot of interesting facts and kept our tour bus engaged the whole trip. The stops were also very informational and showed the best sites on the island!
Doing what: Big Island Grand Circle Island Tour
Incredible! Informative guides. A must do. There was plenty of time at the summit. So many stars in the sky. Everyone had time looking through the telescope
not to be missed. Spectacular! Well informed guide. Delicious dinner!
The tour was well run and enjoyable.
We did a bunch of tours while on the big island helicopter trip, snorkeling, swimming with dolphins, national part, but this Mauna Kea trip was the best of all of them. Our guide Maka was AMAZING!!! I would highly recommend this trip to anyone going to the island.
long day. plenty of free time. the waterfalls are gorgeous. definitely do not need a swim suit there is no opportunity to go in the water.
The guide was excellent
The Mauna Kea summit view is breathtaking. Even the drive up is amazing. What is even better is the star gazing after. The skies are so clear, you feel like your in on of those dome light amphitheaters. SO MANY STARS! You can see the Milky Way, Andromeda, the ISS all with the naked eye! Dinner was delicious and desserts w/hot cocoa really topped off the night.
It is an amazing and unforgettable tour! It was super cold up on the summit but the view totally worth it. The jacket they provided is basically for wind and rain, so better to prepare clothing layers, gloves and hat to keep you warm. Due to winter time, our dinner was a little early at 3:30pm. Bring some snacks if possible, as the tour ends around 9:30pm. The tour guide Nick is very knowledgeable and wiling to share. He controls the time really well and knows how to avoid the crowd. We all enjoy the time seeing the nature from the ice age and how incredible about the super sunset, the cloud, and of course, the hundreds of thousands of stars!!
Excursion was above what was expected. Our guide, Joe, was outstanding! Very knowledgable
and a great personality.
This tour was amazing!
Amazing place to go. Beautifull sunset over the summit with some Astronomy.
Incredibly good! Gene was so knowledgeable that I felt like I was dealing with a guy with multiple Ph.D.s - geology, history, archaeology, astronomy, etc. Definitely give that man a raise! The trip itself was wonderful. I saw Saturn for the first time. I also enjoyed seeing all the observatories and hearing about the issues involved in the protest against the new telescope. Thank you!
Awesome! Is my one word description. Best birthday shared with my lovely wife!
