We had a fantastic day with Cousin Greg. A really friendly, knowledgeable guide who was happy to answer any questions and even threw in some comedy.

A great way to see the whole island, didn't find any of the stops boring. Spent approx 2 hours in the volcano National Park which was amazing, highlight of the trip. Such beautiful scenery and a really good group of people.

We had the opportunity to ride with Tommy on the 26th of December, 2014; and thanks to him our trip was more enjoyable than we could have possibly expected. He knew so much about the island, it's history, and other bits of trivia that really made the trip fun! His knowledge of volcanic geology and history on the island was incredible! To some it may have been overload but to us he is this vast well rounded source of wonderful island information. We found ourselves quoting Tommy days after the tour! We went back to many places on our own to experience longer the places he pointed out to us. Thank you Tommy for making such a great contribution to the success of our Christmas vacation in Big Island!

This was a great tour and the tour guide, Cousin Greg, was very informative. The bus was quite comfortable. The price of the tour was excellent compared to other tours we have taken around the world. We learned alot about the island and saw thing we probably would have missed if we drove the island by ourselves

This was an absolutely wonderful experience. Don't miss it! Our driver named Sal was so knowledgeable of the Big Island history. Nine stops from the volcanoes, coffee plantation, nut factory etc. Caution, it is a very long day. It is very difficult to take pictures out the bus windows because of the mirror reflections from the other side. Click quick from straight ahead! Would do it again in a heartbeat.

The informative trip was a wonderful way to see the entire island. The time flew by as we got on and off frequently to explore the sights of the island. The bus driver was awesome and knew all about the Hawaiian culture and it was a great value for your buck.

The tour was awesome. The driver was very informative, friendly and funny. It's more than any one individual could see or cover in an eleven hor period. The lunch service and call ahead for orders worked slick. Food was available within minutes of our arrival, hot and ready to eat. Providing a map of the tour was helpful for first timers who wanted to plan another visit. One helpful suggestion would be to label or mark the stops on the map so visitors would know where they were going and/or where they had been.

We all had a great time. Our bus driver was wonderful. He helped our ma in and out bus. Told all us everything about the island. My brother-in-law asked him how does he remember all the information that he has passed on to all of us. His reply was he's lived on the island all his life. He sees things and it triggers facts that he tells everyone. We all want to thank him. Our ma will be 80 years old in November. I called and said we was late. It was very nice they waited for us at pick up point. We was 5 minutes late. And my other Brother-in-law kept being late getting back to the bus.. This tour and bus driver was wonderful. Thank you From L. Peters, Minnesota

I loved it! Great especially if its your first time there, go on one of the first days so you can have additional time to go back and explore places you didn't get to stop at. Very informative, long day but well worth it. Good idea to take an umbrella and towel just in case. Better for couples/singles than families with small children.

Our tour was wonderful. Our tour driver gave us so much information about the island and the people. Our stops gave us adequate time to see the sites. We were impressed with how much we learned about the island of Hawaii, from it's beginnings to present day. I believe our tour guide's name was Haley. I would definitely recommend the tour, especially with our tour guide. He was amazing. Hawai`i is a fascinating island.
