Sooooo much fun! Tour Guide Dray drove us around all day. We saw the waterfalls, rain forest, lava tubes, Parker Ranch, etc. We went to lunch. There were 4 of us in the minivan, and it felt like a private tour. Dray kept us alive when a truck crossed the center line and almost hit our van head on. Dray reacted quickly by swerving to avoid a collision. So we stayed alive another day! Thank you Dray!

Wonderful excursion. Our tour guide Dre was exceptional, very knowledgeable of the island, and showed passion for his job. A very good experience.

Very informative local guide, all in all a little too much time inside a van.

This particular tour was replaced due to interest. Really liked the Hilo tour better but our driver, guide was the same great guy
