    Loved hearing all the history in Kona in spots you would never know happened. Very informative and unique.
    Exceptional tour!
    Stephanie_B, Mar 2024
    Jenna was our tour guide and she was exceptional!!! We learned so much about the history of the island. Things are present that you walk by and don't even know. I highly rate this excursion.
    It was just ok. Our guides tablet died before the end of the tour. She did not have a lot of enthusiasm.

    We enjoyed hearing about the little girl that was washed away at the seawall, and we did get some orbs in our photos

    Had an awesome experience on the second day of my trip. Learned a lot about the island's historical background. Zach was super nice and really knew his stuff. I'd definitely be up for another tour!

    I enjoyed everything. Guide was knowledgeable and allowed our group to explore throughout the entire tour. The sights are amazing.
    Thrilling and a little spooky.

    The guide was very informative and engaging. Made the landscape feel alive. This photo looks to have a shadow ghost in it, right next to the emf detector.
    Great Tour!

    The background history and story telling was amazing. Everyone was included in the journey and investigation. One of the best tours in Kona for history. The whole family loved it!

    Tour name misrepresented

    This is really a history tour done at night with a bit of ghost stories. Lady was nice but hard to hear and was not able to keep crowd entertained which would have been good since it was not truly a "ghost" tour.
    One of the BEST ghost tours we've ever been on
    Mustafa_R, Jan 2023
    One of the best ghost tours we've been on, and we've been on close to a dozen across numerous cities. Our guide was fantastic. He was informative and really knew the region. It was a great mix of history and paranormal exploration.
    So So not really exciting
    Linda_S, Nov 2022
    The history was interesting. I think our guide was trying to hard to make the paranormal more believable. Nothing happened on our tour so he was desperate to make us believe in hauntings.
    A very fun night!!
    Maria_P, Sep 2022
    All the historical information was very interesting and the videos and pictures that the guide showed us were fun to see!

    Zach is an excellent guide and is extremely knowledgeable about Hawaiian history and folklore. Our tour gave us an amazing educational and fun-filled evening visiting historical sites that came alive in his gifted storytelling and personal experiences.

    Valarie_M, Jun 2022
    The experience was very disappointing. We spent an hour standing in a lighted parking lot with the narraitor talking but we couldn't hear him. We didn't finish the tour. We have requested a refund.
    Uninteresting and disappointing
    Diana_L, Jun 2022
    This is a tour of Zach's supposed experiences with the supernatural on ohter ghost tours. There is little of interest in his stories of moving beer bottles and suspicious shadows. Worst of all, he had a companion surreptitiously take photos of our group of minors and proceded to use those photos to promote himself on social media. The young ladies involved were completely creeped out and felt violated.
    Response from Host, Jun 2022
    We appreciate your participation and wish you would have notified us sooner (during the tour) about the alleged photos you mention. The ‘companion’ you mention is our backup tour guide and he saw a nice photo moment with the historical bay and heiau in the background. It was not done surreptitiously as you’ve suggested and it’s since been removed from our fan page. Despite your claim, the guests in the photo appear to be having a great time.

    From $49.00

    -You will not receive a refund if you cancel.
