Great tour. We not only saw dozens of waterfalls and got to swim in one, we also stopped at a fruit farm where we saw and sampled many different fruits and spices. We also took an adventurous trip down into Waipio Valley that was was absolutely beautiful. This trip really offers a wide variety of activities and takes you deep into many different parts of the Big Island.
This tour was amazing!
Great guide, beautiful visit, and thoroughly enjoyed the OK Farm. The Waipio Valley was a thrilling ride. You could pretend to be riding in a all-terrain vehicle in Jurassic Park
Wonderful tour of the Big Island. Our tour guide Kala was very professional and as a native knew the history and culture of Hawaii. Kala knew the island like it was his backyard. He accommodated all passengers according to their needs. We had about 12 in our group. My wife could not walk well do to recent knee issue, but that was not a problem. We viewed 4 of the major falls and went in many neat areas that were private and not open to most tours. If you want to know the real Hawaii and enjoy it better, take this tour and ask for Kala Holiday. The tour company that Viator used was Wasabi Int.
Great tour. If you're looking to compliment a volcano tour or just something different this is a great choice.
Pace was good, tour guide was involved, small bus, etc...
You'll definantly want to book this or another tour that actually goes down in to Waipio valley not just the viewing spot. Note the waipio valley part is in a seperate van from the rest of the day and with a local guide ours grew up in the valley. Note that the ride down/up isn't the only attraction, the road in the valley has several water crossings. The valley trip can be quite bumpy so just a warning.
The private waterfall was ok, however akaka is more impressive. no one in our group opted to go swimming but was a good stop anyway.
The stop at OK farms was as unexpected highlight, it is a farm that happens to give tours not a tourist trap. We had a tour of parts of it from one of the employees which was really great, got to see the mandatory macadamia trees however the spice trees were an unexpected suprise. I think everyone in our group enjoyed this stop so much so that our guide needed to get us going as we were spending more time than expected there.
Also of note the lunch provided by this operator was excellent, it's the best of any tour company I've ever seen.
Awesome tour very informative our tour guide Kawika was the best, waterfalls were beautiful, had a wonderful time at the private waterfall was given 30 mins to spend their, lunch was healthy and delicious. Guide for valley tour is different his name was Douglas also great, the island is very beautiful and full of culture both our tour guides were awesome at giving us quick but informative rundown on the history and culture as we went through the tour. Definitely a must do!
What an amazing adventure! Jonathan our guide was wonderful- friendly, knowledgeable and all around great! His stories of the island and historical knowledge really helped to understand what we were seeing and allowed the group to see the island through the eyes of how it used to be: Top notch, I highly recommend taking this tour!
Dominic made this a wonderful and informative trip!
This was not just a sightseeing tour, it was a journey into the heart of the Hawaiian people. Our guide, Kolaa, please forgive if I misspelled was young and at first impression far too practiced. But as we traversed the primal Hawaiian landscape, he unveiled with unexpected wisdom, and a depth of passion only found when one is connected to the land as he is, secrets of the Hawaiian culture and heritage. We truly had no expectations other than to see a few island landscapes not ventured on previous trips, but this was an adventure extraordinaire with this interesting savant as our interpreter. Do not expect to be taken on drive-bys of purged and plumaged tourista attractions. Instead, try to empathize with a history of cultural and ecological interference and dominance, all related without malice but rather as historical fact. Not only were we enlightened to these waves of ways in which the Islands have changed, but we were treated to the stories, the myths, and the rich heritage of the Hawaiian culture. He also treated us to demonstrations of useful and medicinal plants and explained how, with careful planning, one could live completely self-sufficiently on this beautiful, mysterious and volatile rock. I could see how our young guide lived the Hawaiian way his reference to his family was always so tender and sincere. I would especially recommend our guide and this adventure to those who have an interest in anything ecologically related to the Islands. He has a depth of knowledge that you will find challenging and insightful.
