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.
Great tour we enjoyed. Our tour driver was very informative..Many Thanks Jerry and Sandra
Driver was excellent. His name was Sal Mezza. Tour was excellent also.
Best tour ever. Hilary is a great guide. Good places for the whole family.
Justin did an outstanding job! He made the entire experience fun and educational.
Food was very good given the circumstances. Even had tablecloth and dessert.
Actually it was quite amazing, and provided us with history and information about the volcanic nature of the Big Island! Wonderful. Long, but Wonderful!!
Excellent tour. Great way to see the diversity on the island. Our driver, Tommy, did a great job thru the entire 12 hour trip.
It was so much and informative!!! We were able to enjoy touring the island without stressing about driving or directions. The bus was comfortable and our tour guide, Sal, was wonderful!! It was a great deal and I would definitely do it again!
Our driver made the trip. He was knowledgable and funny at the same time.
Very good experience.Gives a complete idea of the Big Island and you can select places you would like to spend later . Informative as the guide tells you about the culture,food places and shops to pick souvenirs and ofcourse about the Island!
Great way to get acquainted with the big island. This was the best.
Hilary was great. He kept to the schedule so the tour didn't run late. He talked the whole time about the island and it's history. The some of the stops were places I wouldn't have known to stop at and we really enjoyed them.
We had a great time with the trip and our guide Hilary! We also got to know a lot about the history from the guide. We also had ample time at all the stops and at no point felt that we needed more time. The tour bus was also very comfortable. It was overall a very good experience and I would recommend this trip to my friends.
Very good day we had fun learnt a lot of the culture and enjoyed it immensely.
What a great way to get introduced to the big island. So great to have someone take us around and explain the climate, plant life, and other secrets of the island. It gave us a 'taste' of all there was to see and allowed us to get our bearings and rent a car to go back and visit other things we saw along the way. Great trip.
We really enjoyed a full day informative tour of the Big Island. Mt Kilauea, black sand beach and turtles were highlights. Tour is easy paced with plenty of comfort stops. Driver was very entertaining.
Excellent tour - worth every cent. Great Tour guide. Yes long but very good.
This was an excellent tour. If you are a 1st time visitor to Oahu it's a great tour to see all the sights in one day. You can then choose which parts of the island you would like to explore in your own time and drive back later in your vacation. On the tour we recently did we stopped at a ranch for a buffet lunch (very nice), the best burger we ever ate with reasonable price. Great views of Chinamans Hat, walk across the road from the rance to the beach and you will get some great photo op's. This tour is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
This tour was great. We saw the entire island, This was money well spent. I would rec to anyone who comes here for the first time or any time if you havent taken this tour. We learned so much history of the island on this tour. The sights we visited were amazing. the big island is a beautiful island and really laid back. Not all the huge building on top of each other like some of the other islands. I will defeinately return to this island.
This has been one of the best tours I ever took, it was a long one but worth every minute of it, our driver/guide, Kimo, was excellent in describing everything that we were seeing and he was nice, couorteous and helpful, I would highly recomment this tour!!!!!
When I called to reconfirm our reservation, the company running the tour had no record of our reservation. They had to call viator to correct the problem. A similar problem arose with our luau reservation in Maui. Someone at viator is dropping the ball.
Awesome experience. This is a must do tour. Make sure you go to the waterfalls.
