Amazing way to see the island in a day! Our tour guide Dave was outstanding! He had a wealth of knowledge and great stories as well. Also really liked that the group was limited to 12 people - made it a very personal tour. Would definitely recommend this tour and ask for Dave!

Our guide, Brian was very knowledgeable. He told a great story. Saw many sights, heard the story of Hawaii history, had great weather. We had taken this same tour in 2020 and still found it a very good trip! Each guide has a different piece of Hawaii to share. Really a great way to spend a day on Hawaii!

Visited Black Sand Beach, saw sea turtles, stoped at yummy bakery, visited coffee farm, many outlooks and waterfalls. Lunch was a teriyaki chicken dish that was delicious. Stopped at Volcanoes National Park. Spectacular views there and we walked thru an impressive lava tube. It was a long but enjoyable day.

We enjoyed all of it. Loved the black sand beach and sampling coffee at the coffee farm. The waterfalls and the volcano area was great.

Great full day and more tour! Awana was our tour guide. He is very knowledgeable about the Big Island and funny! We visited all sights listed for the tour had lunch and snacks. We really enjoyed the relaxing Hawaiian Music Awana played as the shuttle headed back to the drop off resorts for the group. Highly recommend if you want to see the Island in a day and then venture out to places later on your own.

Fantastic experience. We absolutely enjoyed our time on this full day tour, from the new vans that were so clean with great audio to the coffee tour, Black sand beach, Volcano stops, donut stop to lunch on the beach and then it still did not end… the waterfalls were breathtaking.Out tour guide ROBERT was exceptional!!! His knowledge of history to present day was a treat. We were given do much information on our tour and I thought there is no way I’ll ever remember all of it but throughout our stay and other tours we kept referring back to ROBERT’S narratives.Highly recommend this tour and ROBERT as your guide, and for it early in your trip do you can enjoy the island with some background.Thank you so much do enjoyable.

This was an amazing tour for our family. Robert was a fun, knowledgeable guide and by the end of a full day, we all felt we had seen and learned so much. We loved visiting a working coffee farm, seeing sea turtles sunbathing on a black sand beach and witnessing red hot lava In Volcano National Park. Hiking through lava tubes and through rainforests to see waterfalls was so memorable. The drive back to our resort at the end of the day through the Big Island’s “cowboy country” was full of valleys and vistas we won’t soon forget. We then went to Oahu. All the history we learned from our tour made visiting Iolani Palace and other sites even better. Highly recommend!
