This was a memorable, amazing trip. My friend and had an amazing experience! Our guide, Aaron, was extremely knowledgeable about everything Hawaii! The food was pretty good too. Another note: stargazing on that mountain was one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. Even though it rained most of the day, never fear because stargazing is above the cloud bank! The provided jackets were a huge help too, as it’s pretty cold up there. Just don’t forget to bring a pair of warm pants to change into!

This was an amazing tour. It’s long but full with a lot of information about the island. Scott the guide tour was super knowledgeable and very friendly. Great story teller !! Gave everyone enough time to enjoy each stop. I highly recommend this specially if you have Scott .
Amazing day!
Shelley_M, Apr 2024
Excellent guide and I was impressed with his knowledge and how much we saw in just one day! The road at the beginning of the drive (before the first stop) was quite winding so I would recommend taking motion sickness meds ahead of time if prone to this but our guide was a smooth driver and the van had good air circulation so I actually felt much better than usual!
Windy but fun
Dan_F, Mar 2024
Derek was amazing, kept everyone entertained and informed and would highly recommend this to anyone.
Fun informative captivating
Dennis_L, Mar 2024
The volcanoes were great. The scenery was excellent, and it was informative. The tour guide Mr drew was excellent
Thank You, Dreu….Amazing Experience
Jefferson_P, Mar 2024
Dreu was an absolutely incredible tour guide, and we couldn’t have asked for a better experience. He was knowledgeable, passionate about Hawaiian. Culture and history, and absolutely painstakingly sure to honor Hawaiian heritage as we visited the volcanoes and stars. During our tour we encountered several tour guides from other operators, and their lack of respect (And knowledge) of the culture was evident. Dreu and Wasabi Tours absolutely deserve all the success and great ratings that comes their way!
A must do trip
Jenny_W, Mar 2024

Great Views
Kristina_M, Mar 2024
The sights we were taken too were amazing! Our tour guide scott was awesome and knowledgable. The only difficult part is spending 12 hours with the same people, its a long day to be stuck with strangers
Highly recommend
James_G, Mar 2024
Aaron was our tour guide. He was super respectful, friendly, and went above and beyond. Great way to see a little bit of everything and not have to drive around the whole island. Thank you for the great memories!
Great experience

The star gazing was amazing. All the food provided was very good.. Todd was a very capable leader with great knowledge of the tour sites.
Alyx_L, Feb 2024
Over all the tour was awesome! The volcano national park was our favorite part. I think for better planning purposes having an itinerary would be nice. We weren't aware or prepared to spend twelve hours out and about.
An amazing 12 hour adventure!
deanna_a, Feb 2024
Small group big island twilight, and stargazing tour with drew from wasabi tours Hawaii was amazing. Before my tour they answered all my questions so I was comfortable with my planned outing. On the morning of the tour they were able to confirm when I was going since I didn’t have a hotel for pick up. Now Drew Basaldua made the day! Not only did he hit the highlights as promised (Bat View coffee farm tour, Punalu'u Bake Shop, the Volcano National Park and star gazing) he gave a ton of information about Hawaii past and present and demonstrated a great respect for the islands. He made sure ever had a great time and kept up the high energy for the full 12 hours.

Great tour. Learned so much about the Big Island. Good pace and didn’t feel rush. From pickup to drop off tour was 13 hours! I thought kids would lose it but they seem to enjoy themselves.
Awesome volcano/stargazing tour
Laura_C, Feb 2024
The stargazing was my favorite part. The sky was so clear and our tour guide, Todd, found a perfect spot. He was so knowledgeable and even had a telescope so we could see certain stars/planets. Todd even found a driver to come get my husband when he wasn’t feeling well and take him back to the resort.
Our guide Todd did a...
