We choose to tour with Roberts Hawaii as we heard good reviews from other people and it is much cheaper than the tour provided by Pride of America. We saw the same places as those on the more expensive tours. Kona is on a big island of Hawaii. It is also one of the driest place compared to Hilo which is on the same island but on the other side. The tour bus driver is a local and knew much of the history and interesting facts of the areas. We went to Puuhonua o Honaunau National Park which was once belong to the Royal family. This place has a place of refuse for law breakers who can get to the place of refuse before being captured. These people would be pardoned by the king and allowed to be returned to normal life. We visited a nice painted church at St. Benedict which had nice paintings inside painted by the former priest. We also visited a Kona coffee plantation to taste the coffee and to purchase 100% Kona Coffee.

Great tour. You saw how coffee beans were grown and dried and had an opportunity to buy Kona coffee products. Painted church was interesting to see. You had time to walk at your leisure at the city of refuge. It is hot and quite a bit of walking which was fine,but I was not aware of that before going on the tour. Saw a lot of the city and had a great tour guide that pointed out plants and spots of interest.

Of the four shore excursions we booked (3 through Viator, one through NCL), this was the least good. The driver, Lloyd, was difficult to understand and not, perhaps, as interesting or engaging as other drivers. The oddest (and most off-putting) thing was when, at the end of our stop at the coffee place, he whipped out his ukelele and proceeded to serenade us with not one, but TWO very LENGTHY Hawaiian songs written by a friend of his. He was not a particularly good singer, the verses were endless, and it became annoying and embarassing to have to listen to!
