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.

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!!

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

This tour was perfect for the entire family. We had an 8 year old with us, as well as my late 60s parents who have some mobility issues. The pace was right for everyone, and the variety of stops and activities were well planned and interesting. Katie, the tour guide, was amazing. She knew so much about the plants and history of the area. It's a long day, but it is well worth every minute and every penny!

I was the only one on the trip that day, but anyway Katie came pick me and guided me through the following warm and fantastic 12 hours. Feel like being upgraded to an amazing private tour!
It seems to me that Katie knows any hidden things on this island. Let alone the legends, histories and her wide knowledge about lives here. The Kona city is charming and neat, and coffee farm tour was informative and interesting. The best part was still the black sand beach and volcanoes park. I know some other tours do not involve the Punalu'u beach, but stepping on the famous black sand beach is something you won't wanna miss! At the volcanoes park, we also went down hill to the seashore where the black lava buries everything. I couldn't even find a word to describe how astonished I felt when I was standing there. At Halemaumau Crater, we wait till it got completely dark so I can better spot the glowing lava lake.
During that 12 hours, I saw a lot, experienced a lot, and also learned a lot. Thank you Katie for the wonderful trip!

BTW, Katie is also a good photographer who helped take me many good photos!

This tour was the highlight of our trip to the Big Island. Due to the government shutdown the Volcanoes National Park was closed but we still had a very enjoyable day and even saw 5 green sea turtles on a black sand beach. Katie was a great tour guide - very experienced and fantastic with our kids!
