The airline trips/tour was well organized. I didn't particularly enjoy the orchid farm stop or the Macadamia farm stop but was more than impressed with Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park. We enjoyed our bus tour with plenty of stops, we were able to see hot springs, walk on a trail through the hot springs, we were able to see lava at Kilauea as well. Overall, worth the trip from Oahu.

Great Educational Experience.

We visited Big Island in April this year. Wonderful tour of all the key attractions on Big Island with Polynesian Adventures Tours. Hotel pickup/drop off from / to the airport and Hawaiian Airlines flight from Honolulu to Hilo on Big Island was well very well organized and on time. This gave us full 12 hours to cover the itinerary. The trip to Rainbow Falls, Akatsuka Orchid Gardens, Mauna Loa factory and Liluokalani Gardens were delightful. Volcanoes National Park, chain of craters, lava fields and an up close view of the Kilauea caldera at Pahoa was simply spectacular and breathtaking. Our local tour guide Leroy was very knowledgable and regaled us with interesting facts and local native Hawaiian stories. This will be a very memorable trip for us as after 3 weeks of our visit the Kilauea volcano erupted and due to extreme volcanic activity and lava flows Pahoa and neighboring areas have been evacuated and closed to visitors.

Very informative and helpful guide. Appreciated his expertise and knowledge of the sights. It was unfortunate the weather was not favorable during the time at Volcano National Park.

What an amazing day! The tour from start to finish was great. JT, our tour guide was friendly, actually hilarious, and very knowledgeable. As JT drove us around he gave us great tid bits about the area, the culture, the food etc. I would highly recommend this tour and JT as a guide.

Had an amazing trip with John as our tour guide. He has been doing this for many years and was very knowledgeable and interactive. Only thing I would change is the dinner options. It was strange to be dropped off at a mall and get dinner at the food court which did not have many good options. Aside from that, the tour was great!

Had a great time. It was a little long since the pick up in Honolulu for the airport was 4:30 a.m. and did not get back to my hotel in Honolulu until close to 10:00 p.m. Hiwever,, it was worth it. The guide, Captain Rob, is so knowledgeable about Hawaiian culture, history, and volcanology. I learned a lot and the Big Island is so beautiful. It was worth the effort getting up so early in the morning for the tour,

Loved the many stops and the generous time allowed at each. Bus driver / tour guide very knowledgeable about Hawaii culture and language. The only thing keeping me from a 5 star was the fact that it was a rain filled day and that we couldn't see the red hot lava at Volcanoes Park.
