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.
Excellent tour. Greg the driver was fantastic. Highly recommend
It was a long day, with lots of driving around, but the bus driver / tour guide was informative and funny, and made the whole experience much more enjoyable. If you're only on Big Island for a few days, it is well worth doing.
A Long Day, but so worth it. A great way to start your trip, the only critism I have is that they have stops at placeslike, the Macadamia Factoy/Shop and the Candy Factory/Shop, when I would rather have had time looking at waterfalls that actually had flowing waterfalls. Sal, our driver, a Cowboy at heart from New Jersey!!! really knows his stuff about the island and its histry, he was very entertaining. Highly Recommended :-)
A very enjoyable and interesting tour. A lot to see and experience. Our driver, Hilary (that's ONE L), was extremely well informed, spoke fluent Japanese to the benefit of a few of the passengers, and provided many interesting side notes along the way around the island. Comfortable ride and seating on the bus. It's the best way to see what Hawaii is, and was, all about. Would I recommend this tour to anyone? Oh Yeah!
We really enjoyed this tour. We would have never taken the time or energy to plan and visit some many great places. We also learned all kinds of neat things that our tour guide shared regarding history, culture, and local's lives. I would recommend this trip in order to see the whole island. It was a great time!
This was an excellent tour of the Big Island. Hilary was our Tour Guide and he has a vast knowledge of the Island and the history which he shared with us all along the bus ride. He gave ideas of what to look for at the individual stops. EXCELLENT!!
Leo the guide was very knowledgable. Good whistlestop overview of the island.
The tour was great, saw so many wonderful things. The guide was very informative.
Great overview of the island but its a long day and we didnt see any turtles.
Tour was very informative. It was a long day so if you opt to take this one, plan it accordingly dependent upon your day before and day after activities. Lunch took longer to arrive than expected even though it was called ahead which did not give us much time to look around before getting on the bus.
The tour guide was fantastic and had great knowledge of the island.
