The Big Island Tour with Daniel, was nothing short of amazing. Perfect if you dont have a rental...or even if you do. Saw so many amazing sights, and Daniel was super knowledgeable and very nice/funny. His voice is sooo soothing, it goes really well with the island's vibes. The meal served on the tour was REALLY good...and so were the other random eateries we encountered along the way. Will def be recommending this tour to my friends visiting the Big Island. Mahalo!

We had a wonderful time. The tour guide RyanWilson was excellent. He kept us well informed and highly entertained throughout the long day. Please be aware it is a big island and the trip last 12-14 hours.

I picked Grand Circle Island Tour to see Hawaii Island for its landscapes, beaches, waterfalls, towns and volcanos. What I got was a lot more. We were a small group of 8, and led by an amazing tour/ driver, Dreu from Wasabi Tours. With Dreu at the driver's seat literally, we heard and learnt about the Hawaiian culture, language, history, back stories of places and towns, local nature and habitats, and even up to the minute news that affected the state around the time.

The highlights of the tour included everything that was listed on the itinerary and more. We factored in an additional hour with our small group and had a detour to Punalu'u Bake Shop for free samples of local sweet bread and masaladas. The tour was perfect, from spectacular view of Kilaueu Caldera, watching turtles at Punalu'u Black Sand Beach, caught the rain in Hilo, and graced with two rainbows at Waipio Valley to sum up the tour in the evening. Truly memorable.

Pau' and mahalo

This tour is a good orientation to the island and great for people who have no transport. Several people were a little irritating but that is tour conditions and they did not spoil the experience. Lunch was good and the fact that our tour guide shared the left over picnic boxes with a family not on our tour because they would go to waste otherwise....he did offer them to us first but they were very filling....was a nice gesture

Perfect for everyone. The beach is something else! The turtles came to greet us and we split a coconut, enjoyed the fresh tangerines and wandered over to a pond. The diversity is unheard of.

This tour was a highlight of my week vacation on the big island. I really felt I was able to explore most of the island and see so much diversity with the tour. Ryan was the tour guide we had and he was nice, funny, and knew a lot of information about the island. It is hard to say what my favorite part was just because we saw so many great things. The island takes a while to get around, so there was a lot of driving, but the van had a lot of room and was comfortable. This tour gave me a better feel of what Hawaii looks like by getting to drive around. And at lunch the food was good, and seemed to be a traditional Hawaii meal. I would recommend this tour to anyone who loves exploring, and seeing beautiful scenery.

Great guide with lots of interesting facts about the Big Island. I didn't have a car rental, so this tour was a great way to see the whole island in one day.

A long day that was very worthwhile. Got an around the island tour stopping at significant sites but also learned a lot about other sites we can visit on our own, some history and lots of great information about the island and volcanoes. Our driver/guide, Ryan, was warm, caring, informed and provided us with many insights about living on the island...including his personal no parking sign.

This tour is definitely worth joining, especially if this is your first trip to Hawaii. Our tour guide Ryan was very knowledgable and articulate about the history past and present of the Big Island and Hawaii in general, personable and helpful, charming and funny too! I have no hesitation recommending this tour to anyone.

I've been on two tours with Viator and both are five stars.With only one day to tour the island I'm glad I picked this one. I have some great pictures of the volcanoes, waterfalls and cliffs at the Valley of the Kings. Nate our guide was so knowledgeable. I was soaking up the info as we drove from sight to sight. Also liked that we get to get out and hike or walk around to the steam vents and on the black sand beach. Keep up the high standards.

My husband, teen son, and I all agree this tour was a great introduction to the big Island. All the highlights, some bonus stops and we never felt rushed. Ryan our driver was a joy, informative, a save driver, and good guy. Lunch was yummy and the pineapple heavenly. Highly recommended.

Ryan was our guide and he was terrific. Lunch at the orchid farm was a real bonus and we loved that. We were amazed at all we saw. It was a long day but truly worth the time and Ryan's knowledge of the island was awesome. Thank you for an amazing trip.

The condos were wonderful and service was very good. So much to do without leaving the grounds. Private beach, swimming pool, golf course. Lovely dining room, good food too. Market about 2 minutes away, in mini shopping center. Saw waterfalls, the stars at night. volcanoes, and just plain beautiful plant life. We went to Kauai first and then Kona. From now on it's Kona and these condos.

Nate was a energetic, engaging guide, who enjoyed sharing his extensive knowledge if the island. Wonderful info on the flora/fauna of island as well as locating a sea turtle for us at the black sand beach. Pick-up at our hotel was right on time as well as drop off . The waterfalls, lava tube, volcano crater, green sand beach were given ample time to explore. The bento box lunch was special and delicious! I would recommend this tour to even those with some physical limitations, Nate was sensitive to my husbands having to walk a little slower and would recommend an easier route. I would take this tour again!

This is a great tour! Our tour guide, Mr. K was great. Very knowledgeable and humorous! You will get to see a coffee plantation, lava flows, the volcano, an orchid farm, beautiful black sand beaches and multiple waterfalls. Beautiful scenery on the trip. Well worth it. Would not recommend for young kids, they would easily get bored as it is an all day trip.

This is a great tour if you are short on time. You cover most of the key spots within a day. We were a group of 4 people out of the 13 on this tour.
A special mention to our tour guide DREU who was simply outstanding. I have been on many guided tours across the world but I have not come across a tour guide like Dreu. His passion and energy for his job, impeccable knowledge and the ability to tell a story associated with each small thing on the tour is special and made the tour memorable. Lunch was great. The selection of key sites was awesome and Dreu made the day great. Kudos to Dreu !! You are a champ.
Highly recommended and more so if you can get Dreu as your tour guide.

Great Experience and our Tour Guide was fun. Saw some amazing sights. Being able to complete major attrations around the island in a day is perfect for people low on time.

This was a fun trip. We learned a lot from the whole ride. Saw different spots and place and learned history about it. Whats cool about going in a smaller group is the guide could attend everybody's questions right away. Its a long adventure but its all worth it. The tour comes with a snack and lunch meal.

Definitely recommend this company for the island tour.
