Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Small-Group Big Island Tour: Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and Kona Coffee Farm. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
DO THIS TOUR FIRST when visiting Big Island. Dominik is great, he's so knowledgeable about Big Island-- history, nature, wildlife, local places to eat and took extra time for my touristy needs. My husband and I found it so cool to apply everything we learned on this tour to when we went about the island on our own thereafter. I'm not big on hiking but the hike was great even though it rained for a bit, you get amazing views and awesome photo opportunities. The Kona coffee farm was fun, you get to learn about what makes Kona coffee special and you get unlimited samples. Trust me, you will buy coffee from this farm You are also well fed throughout the tour--lunch, desserts, snacks and dinner. DO THIS TOUR, YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!
What an outstanding tour! Dominik the tour guide did a great job and is very knowledgeable about volcanoes and all things Hawaiian. This was my favorite tour during my week in Hawaii and I would recommend it to everyone!
Awesome tour! Our small-group turned out to just be my daughter and myself, so it was really a private tour. Our guide, Katie, was the best. She was very personable and by the end of the day felt like a friend. Because it was just the two of us we were able to see and do some extra things that a larger group would have missed out on. If you just plan one activity for your stay, then this is the one.
Our guide was very informative, he knew the Island and how to get around. The stops for photos and great.
Katie is an exceptional and informative tour guide. The trip to the Thai restaurant was one of the best meals we ate on our trip. The only downside was that it rained that evening so we did not get a good view of the volcano
Everything about this small group tour met or exceeded expectations. Our guide was knowledgable and very personable, and woked with us to provide almost a private tour feel. The vehicle was comfortable and the food provided was excellent.
What an amazing day! I would highly recommend this tour! Our tour guide
Katie was awesome! She was very knowledgeable. She even took us to some places that were not listed as part of the tour!
The tour was great. Our guide Dominique was very friendly, knowledgeable and informative. We would take another tour by this company again.
Our tour guide Dominik was simply the best tour guide we have ever had. He made the experience very memorable and we would highly recommend him.
Outstanding tour guide. Even though the tour is long, our tour guide never lost his composure and professionalism.
Would highly recommend asking for Dominick if he is available.
Mon mari et moi avons très apprécié ce tour. Nous le recommandons grandement.
It was fantastic! Guide, Dominick, was excellent -- very knowledgeable and personable. We had a great time!
This tour was beyond expectations. Excellent guide! Knowledgeable and pleasant. See the Big Island highlights and amenities included. The best introduction to the Big Island.
The weather was not cooperative but that didn't ruin the trip. Our guide was very informative, careful driver and looking out for us. We drove home in horrible fog for most of the way, but always felt safe. Great experience!
Tour was great! Our tour guide Katie, picked us up at 9am sharp. She is highly personable and knowledgeable, and kept the whole tour entertained. She made stops along the tour to view whales and sea turtles, and even recommended a guy selling fresh coconuts! Highlight of the tour is definitely seeing the red glow of the volcano at night. Considering the excessive crowd at the volcano park during the evening lava viewing, and also the amount of driving needed, this tour is the best way to go about it. The iPad movies at night was a pleasant surprise. Recommended!
Dominik was a very knowledgeable guide. He went out of his way to explain so many things, HI history, geology of volcanoes, native vs. introduced plants, successfully finding nene geese, etc. This tour provides a great impression of the big island, the dry Kona side with its beaches, coffee plantations, turtles on the beach, the southern tip of the island, and the Kilauea area, various sights in the volcano NP, with the glowing of Kilauea at night as the high point.
Thoroughly enjoyed!! Tour guide (Katie) was excellent!!!! Her enthusiasm about is contagious!!!
Drinking Java on the Big Island of Lava!! This tour was one of the best I have been on anywhere on the planet. Katie our guide was fantastic with her commentary and organization - and we were so lucky to see some special and memorable places on this tour. The Coffee Farm visit was Outstanding as an introduction to growing, sorting and drying out coffee beans and a beautiful location too!! Seeing six turtles on the Black Sand Beach was a very special experience. The Volcano Park was awesome: the 1969 Lava Trail was from another world; watching the glow in the Caldera of Kīlauea at sunset was unique; and Volcano House was nice too. This trip was worth every cent and the perfect introduction to an island with almost every climate in the world on it and so many natural things to see and enjoy. Katie you are a legend and we recommend this trip and other related Big Island trips!!
Our tour guide Katie was amazing!!! She made the tour a five star tour because of her knowledge and her enthusiasm.
The tour was excellent. It was the best tour we have ever been on. Our tour guide, Katie, was amazing! You could tell she really loved her job which helped set this tour above all the rest! We learned everything we needed to know about the island.
My boyfriend and I took this tour on our recent trip to the Big Island and found it to be a great way to see some of the island. Our guide Dominik was so knowledgable of the history and environment, and we felt very well cared for the entire time. We highly recommend this tour.
Dominik was an amazing and knowledgeable tour guide for the coffee and volcano tour! My friends and I learned so much about the island. We would never have had this enriched experience if we had toured the island on our own.
Great all day trip. Our guide Katie was very knowledgeable. Wouldn't have been able to navigate through the park and had the experience we had without her.i
