Saw a lot of the Big Island. Our visit to Volcano National Park was the best. The weather was not the best but the Tour Operator made it enjoyable despite the weather.

Wonderful Day on Hawai'i Island Highlights Tour
Karla_C, Mar 2024
We had a wonderful day with our highly knowledgeable, friendly driver and guide Thia. Appreciated her energy (that's a long day and she was "on" the entire time!), her tips about the lilikoi mimosa (we enjoyed one at the cafe at Volcanoes National Park), and attention to passengers. Lots of great stops--hard to single out a highlight. Thia had jackets, umbrellas, hot towels, and plenty of snacks and drinks. Our group of 8 got along extremely well and we enjoyed getting each other's back stories. A terrific and memorable day!
Response from Host, Mar 2024
Aloha, Karla! Thia is indeed a gem, and we're thrilled that her knowledge, friendliness, and energy made your experience truly special. It's wonderful to know that Thia's tips added to your enjoyment, and we're glad you had the chance to try the lilikoi mimosa at the cafe in Volcanoes National Park. We're also pleased to hear that her attention to detail, including providing jackets, umbrellas, hot towels, snacks, and drinks, contributed to your comfort throughout the day. It sounds like your group of 8 had a fantastic time together, and we're delighted that you enjoyed each other's company and shared back stories along the way. Creating memorable experiences and fostering connections among our guests is what we strive for, and we're thrilled to hear that we succeeded in doing so.

Everything on your list & lots of extras, too
Gail_F, Jan 2024
Chance, our tour guide, was amazing: with anecdotes about every place on the island. The island highlights tour was a great way to experience many parts of the island of Hawai'i without having to wait in a long crowd while trying to figure out what & where to go. We got many ideas for what we will explore in more depth over time. There are many extras along the trip, and we enjoyed meeting people from all over who joined the excursion for the day. Highly recommended for honeymooners, and probably most appropriate for folks over 10 or 12 who don't mind a few long drives in a long but amazing day.
Response from Host, Jan 2024

This tour was the best of all of them! Debora was the best tour guide I have ever had! She really made us feel the culture. She told us all about the history and most important about the life style of Hawaiians. We had an amazing day visiting all the nice places in big island. She even gave us names of places to visit and eat. She was amazing. Please go on this tour! And if you can, please ask for her because you’re not going to regret it. Please ask for her, she is the best!

Lisa_W, Oct 2023
Jim was a great tour guide throughout the day and felt well taken care of. The one item was he was sick and coughing throughout the day. My husband and I are now sick as well and can’t enjoy our last few days in Hawaii. Think next time he should just call the day off to avoid contagious people
Response from Host, Nov 2023
Aloha, Lisa! I'm sorry to hear that you and your husband have become unwell during your vacation. To clarify, Uncle Jim has a chronic cough and wasn't actually sick. Nonetheless, we understand the inconvenience you experienced. We appreciate your feedback. We hope you both recover soon and can still find some enjoyment during your last days in Hawaii. Mahalo and best wishes.
