Great transportation; enjoyed the short walk thro the lava tube at Kona coffee,other than that the stop was so so; the stop at the heritage village of the early ancestors was really informative and gave us a look at how they lived back then and their customs& beliefs; a side stop at the donut shop was very good, not only the donuts , but the variety of food for lunch; then off to the black sand beach, which was awesome with many green turtles up on the beach; Volcano National park was awesome and we could have spent many hours there. Then to Hilo and Rainbow Falls

Our driver and the actual trip was excellent!

Our driver was wonderful, professional and knowledgeable. The route was good. I would have liked fewer stops that were just for shopping. An actual tour at the coffee stop would be preferred to what was given. My main disappointment was lunch. The service was fair, the food not satisfactory. A nicer place that cost a bit more would have been preferred. My praise for the driver includes his great ability to have people stay on schedule.

Crew was Great! Food was good but I’m picky so others probably loved it. It was partially cloudy but the sunset turned out to be beautiful and the clouds caused a rainbow to appear on shore. The only downside was there were no Dolphins or other sea creatures to be seen. If you have any doubts about motion sickness please premedicate. Other than that it was a good time.

Our guide Nick was full of good info on the botany, the culture and history of the area. He would weave the folklore tales of old Hawai with present day subject matter. And he had all the “stuff” we needed. Backpacks water snacks rain gear. He took great care of us. He is an excellent ambassador for the company and the Big Island. I will be back!!!

Good overview of the island with time to explore areas on the tour. The lunch was late in the day. It was good, but looked like it would be larger than it was. The guide was pleasant and patient. Over half the passengers did not speak English as their first language, so there was not much banter as other tours usually have.
