This was a wonderful experience and a great value. Our guide was very knowledgeable and had a sense of humor. We have experienced other more expensive tours which were not as informative or enjoyable.

Great way to get around Hilo, very convenient to and from cruise ship, and friendly informative drivers, depending how off on and off you use, can workout much cheaper than taxi or rental car.

If you arrive in Hilo cruise terminal wondering what to do you cant go wrong walking past the options at the terminal and going straight to the "Hoppa On - Off" office which is located on the left just outside the cruise ship terminal gates. Get a nice 2 hour highlights tour, see Rainbow Falls and explore old town. After that take the bus to the beaches. Buses run every 20 minutes or so. You cant go wrong. You will have a very full day and I found all the drivers to be very helpful and informative.

We did the town tour, and it was great for our young kids. There were only short drives between stops, so a majority of the time was spent at the different locations. Tour guide was great, keeping us entertained and informed during the drives. Well worth the money.

Looking for something to do in Hilo? This is it!!! We Had a WONDERFUL, FUN, LEARNING experience with Hpo on Hoppa tours. It was so enlightening and exciting learning about Hawaiian & Polynesian culture, traditions, foods, history and horiculture. Our tour guides, Ron especially, were informative, kind and entertaining. We totally enjoyed the guided stops and hopping off to enjoy the downtown Hilo shops and AMAZING Farmers market. We highly recommend it!!! Thank you for a memorable experience!

We thoroughly enjoyed our Volcanoes National Park tour with this company. We were originally going to do the town tour but are so happy we decided to do the volcano tour instead. Aaron was so knowledgeable and has such pride in his island and culture. There were only 13 people on this tour including our family of 4 which made it even better. We also stopped at Rainbow Falls and Big Island Candy factory. Unfortunately the Black Sannd beach was not accessible that day to tour groups.

The Hoppa on and Hoppa off Keikana Trolley Tour was the perfect option for a casual visit to see the township of Hilo. These locations were near and terrific in historic value. We visited the exclusive Coconut Island, the fabulous and massive Japanese gardens, the gorgeous Rainbow Falls, the deliciousness of the Big Island Candy factory, and finishing off at the waterfront old town marketplace area. The Pineapples Restaurant in the old town made for super pit stop for some local cuisine, cold beverages and a nice finish to our tourist adventure. The staff were courteous when we purchased our tickets while our driver was a native Hawaiian. He very passionate to the history and the locations we visited. He was both informative in describing the spots of interest and very kind in guiding everyone around the vicinity and all the sites we visited. It was a spontaneous decision to do the Hoppa on Hoppa off tour to explore the town and ended up being very glad we did.

We were picked up at the ship and taken to their main office. got on the bus. The driver was really good he wasn’t a problem. unfortunately we didn’t like Hilo so that didn’t help with evaluation. Also it really wasn’t a hop on hop off. You went from destinations to destination and it was really a tour

Volcano National Park tour was fantastic! Aaron, our driver and tour guide, was the perfect mix of educational and fun--even our kids (ages 8 - 13) loved it. The van was clean and spacious, and the stops were gorgeous. The only reason we're giving this 4 out of 5 stars is because the stops that were advertised online weren't necessarily where we ended up on the tour. We had to request to see certain places, the lava tube was closed (understandably, as a recent earthquake made it unsafe), etc. We just wished we were given a heads up at the beginning of the tour so we could choose where we would spend more of our time. Overall, highly recommend--excellent experience!
