This tour was amazing. We had the greatest driver who was well versed on the history of the Island. The sights were breath taking. The Valley of the Temples was a personal highlight, as was out being fortunate to see whales when we stopped to see the blow hole.

This is the only tour I found that included the Waimea Valley. In my opinion this is the most beautiful spot on the island and an absolute must see. The trip was well planed out to spend enough time at each spot to enjoy the tour.

I did this tour last year round the Island and many of the stops were similar. But Rocky, our driver, was so good that it was fine doing it a second time. Very enjoyable.

We were picked up at our hotel on time in a small van. Our driver, Noah, was very entertaining and provided a good background of history of the island and the sites that we visited. He was very accommodating while at the same time kept to schedule. There were many highlights to the day, including Waimea Falls and Dole Plantation. We thoroughly enjoyed the day and feel it was excellent value.
