This was a very well done tour. I especially appreciate having been guided by a native Hawaiian who speaks both English and Hawaiian and knows a lot of the native culture of the islands.

It was our first time in Big Island so we booked the Grand Circle Island Tour to see most of it. We enjoyed every stops.
It was a perfect way to see the highlights of the whole island. We enjoyed our tour leader and meeting other tourists. We would definitely recommend it!
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!
We had a wonderful driver, Kimo Sabe, who keep us informed with the behind the scenes story along the way. Good way to start a stay at the big Island.
Wonderful tour. We had a great time and enjoyed everything! Our guide, Hilary, knew everything about the island and kept us entertained with history and interesting stories all day, I'd recommend this tour to everyone coming to the big island.

We really enjoyed our all day trip around the island. Our tour guide/driver was excellent. He was very informative as to the history of the Island and all of the sites. We enjoyed each of our many stops along the way and are so glad that we spent the to see the Island. Will definitely take other tours through Viator.
This was an excellent tour. Our guide, Hilary, gave us an informative commentary for the whole trip, I would highly recommend. Thanks to Hillary we now have detailed knowledge of the economics and history of the Big Island. Mahalo, we thoroughly enjoyed.
I didn't think being driven around in a bus for the 12 hours was going to be good, but it was great! You get to see a lot. And the places we visited were always at the right time. For example, the first stop was a coffe farm where there were plenty of samples to try. If you didn't get your morning coffee when you had to get up at 6:45am to catch this bus, no problem, you can get your coffee on this stop, with plenty of different flavours to try. And the lunch place we stopped, Volcano House, has a beautiful view of the crater with smoke coming out of it. The lunch you have to pay for, but the driver gives you a menu before we even get there, and it's all reasonably priced. The only complaint would be that it sometimes felt rushed, but then again, we would be there well into the evening.
It was an excellent trip. We got to see the places that were listed. We love the Volcano National Park. My only regret was it was really foggy and cloudy when we were up at the Jaggar's viewpoint. But that's beyond anybody's control.

This was a fantastic tour. We were picked up form the hotel at 6am and returned at 6pm having seen so much of the Big Island. We both fell in love with the place. We went to the Kona coffee place where you can try all the different coffees, we went to the macadamia nut factory, saw a live volcano whilst having lunch. We walked through the rainforest, saw beautiful waterfall, walked through lava tube, went to chocolate factory, orchid farm, several beaches just to name a few things! There was definitely something for everyone on the tour and it gave you a flavour of what the island is like with all it's micro climates. I would definitely recommend this tour.
A great tour and very informative. A great way to see this beautiful island. Volcanoes and Waterfalls where amazing to see
Excellent tour. We saw so much. Vast information. Great way to see the Island in just one day. I have already suggested this tour to others.
Loved the tour, Our guide, Hilary, was amazing, We learned so much and did so in comfort.
We really enjoyed the tour, and Sal was an awesome guide!!! This is our first time on the island, and we learned a lot about the history, Hawaiian culture, plants, etc, and now have a much better idea where we want to go during the rest of our trip.
I love Sal. He was amazing! The tour was great and very informative.
The best part of the tour was the knowledge of our tour guide Greg. We did the tour on a Thursday in one of the small buses so the group interaction was also fun.
What a wonderful trip. We saw and learnt so much, our driver Greg was full of useful information which made everything very interesting. We covered the important parts of the Island but obviously the best was the volcano. Found the stops at the chocolate factory and macadamia nut factory a waste of time I was there to see things not buy things!
The driver Greg was very knowledgable, kept the long tour interesting. Would take it again
It is a great trip to start with. You get a taste of everything on the Island. We also got a better idea of travel times for other excursions we wanted to do. Our bus driver Sal was very informative.
