    We were in a van that contained 13 people and the tour guide. It is a FULL day tour. That said, we did see a lot on the big island and heard about it during almost all of the trip while driving. This tour was very informative and we learned a lot about life present and past on the island. We had one of the best tour guides that we have ever had. Thanks Jacqueline! I would recommend this tour especially if you don’t rent a car as you get a great overview of the island. We will be renting a car for one day to go somewhere to see the Mauna Loa volcanic eruption at night. Lunch and snacks are provided as well as plenty of cold water. We would recommend this tour.

    Would certainly recommend Safari helicopters. Sam, our pilot, was fantastic as were the staff in the office. We enjoyed the whole experience, especially flying over the flowing lava from the erupting Mauna Loa volcano.

    Highly recommend this ride, lots of fun and great tour of The Volcanoes National Park.
    Very informative guides and Byron was funny and was glowing in Aloha!
    The e-bikes where awesome, comfortable and safe.
    We stopped and saw many interesting points and great views of the volcano.
    My wife and I enjoyed every part of the tour and will do it again next trip here.
    We have been on many tours in our travels this was one off the best!
    We were concerned about the new eruption but felt safe with Kalin and Byron leading the way.
    Thanks guys, till next time🤙ALOHA

    I would five 10 out of 5. Our guide Donna was superb. She was not born in the island but I can bet she knows no less than someone born in the big island. She kept us on schedule but never rushed. Her commentary was very informative and she has good sense of humor. It was around 6 hours tour. We were picked up right from the ship terminal and dropped right there. Bus has around 25 passengers capacity. She would stop at KTA ( a supermarket ) where you can buy lunch ( or anything else you want ). Last stop was at Big Island Candies. In between, she took us to black sand beach, japanese garden, rainbow water falls, volcano national park, lava tubes.

    I would highly recommend this tour.

    Kaitlyn is an amazing tour guide! She went above and beyond for us! She is very knowledgeable about the Big Island and Volcanoes. She kept us smiling and laughing throughout the tour. I loved the personal experiences she shared. She answered everyone’s questions and offered to take pictures for us. You could totally feel her passion as a tour guide and about the island. There was never a dull moment. I will definitely be recommending this tour with my family and friends! Hopefully they can get Kaitlyn as a guide!

    AN Amazing must-do experience if your in this island. They are amazing creatures that swim extremely close to you. And all you have to do is lay on the water and hold the board (and your go pro) they even provide wetsuits and noodles for those who request it. There were a lot of other boats out there. But this crew got there at specific time when the other boats had left so that we wouldn't have to share the mantas with other boards. For that reason we had a constant show. There was always 1 manta under our board and even 2 at same time. Buddha and Chris were super nice and accommodating. The boat ride there was also it's own great experience. DO IT!

    Dave gave “once in a lifetime” new meaning with his passionate tour of Big Island with a rare sighting of lava on both Mauna Loa and Kilauea. With equal parts luck and crafted timing, we were blessed with a just cleared view of Kilauea ending with a drive down saddle road to see firey molten rock flowing from the just erupted Mauna Loa, the first time in decades. Dave’s excitement was palpable and he guided us to embody and embrace just how special this Hawai’i excursion was. As if active volcanoes on day two of our first trip to Hawai’i wasn’t rare and monumental enough, we also delighted our taste buds at the Heavenly Kona coffee farm, ran black sand between our fingers at Punalu’u beach, saw dolphins swimming alongside sea arches and cliffs east of Apia Point, distinguished between pāhoehoe and a’ā lava through the winding mountain roads, explored lava tube Thurston, and followed the slow falling water from rainbow falls. All in a day’s work for the knowledgeable and passionate Dave, who catered to and cared for the experience of each guest on what will prove to be the best experience on our family vacation.

    This trip was so much fun! We were picked up from Waikoloa on time in a very clean and spacious van. This was very convenient since Big Island is indeed very big, and you need to travel the WHOLE island in order to truly experience the unique aspects of this island.

    The group was 7 of us, which was great because you get a more personal tour and we were truly there to learn, and not just tour for the sake of it. Our guide David was super extremely kind AND knowledgeable! He weaved his knowledge of the island, geology, etc with his very worldly knowledge (he has a very well traveled past). He kept us all engaged and interested the entire time.

    One special thing to point out is that my partner wanted to do an extra side trip for some Big Island Candies cookies, which are only found on Hilo on this island. Not only was David very receptive to this additional side trip, he made it happen with a genuine smile on his face! We bought tons of cookies.

    We never felt rushed at any point to get to the next stop. He made sure we truly enjoyed every stop, helped us take tons of photos, and taught us so much. Big thank you to David and his company! Will be certain to recommend our friends to this island as well as your tour company!

    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.

    Junior, our tour guide, was fabulous. He was very knowledgeable about the area. He took us to Rainbow Falls, to see the lava tube, lava trees and the lava fields, as well as stopping at the newest black sand beach. It was amazing that most of this happened because of events that happened not that long ago!! Junior was super friendly and very personable and highly recommended requesting him as your tour guide!!
