    Hilo Highlights!
    , Dec. 2021
    A wonderful tour of showing the highlights on the Hilo side of the Big Island! Wonderfully Fun guide and driver and really fun experience
    Not what I hoped for.
    , Dec. 2021
    Bad weather was just the luck of the draw, however, the vehicle was an older Toyota van that was noisy making it hard to hear the guide. Make sure what the vehicle you will be riding in before you book it
    Excellent host
    , Jul. 2021
    Karen was a excellent tour host. Her know was on point. She made us feel welcome, educated us on the history of Hawaii, taught us new words, and told us about the multiple languages here including pigeon… to top it off Michael cracked a coconut for us. I would recommend this trip to anyone coming to the big island. Oh yeah, I forgot Karen recommended a dinner location in kona called Quinn’s almost by the sea. 👍🏿👍🏿👍🏿👍🏿👍🏿

    Volcanoes and Hilo Sights and Scenes
    , Jan. 2020
    Our guide Yong was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot about the history of the volcanoes and surrounding Hilo highlights. He was very courteous and engaging and enhanced our excursion immensely.

    See the sights in Hilo
    , Dec. 2019
    This was a good excursion that we took while in Hilo for the day. Great choice rather than a crowded cruise based excursion. We were picked up in a nice newer passenger van. Only 8 total people in our group. Our day in port was a bit short, so some of the stops felt rushed. But as a group we talked with the guide and made some adjustments. Bring a light snack, although we did stop at a 7/11 for lunch.

    Poor Communication from Viator/Trip Advisor - Always book direct with tour agency.
    , Dec. 2019
    The following review reflects on Viator and not solely on the tour operator. We booked with Viator over the phone, gave our trip and flight info and they booked this tour for us. Received a text the day before the tour by the operator to change my flight time or location or we would not be able to attend... Thanks for the notice! Perhaps when I booked this tour Viator could have provided all this information.

    Shore excursion. This tour is for cruise ships. This tour which operates on days ships arrive and are joined with cruise ship guests. Please don’t book air without checking with us. This is shore excursion from cruise ship; not, from airplane. We need flight number and time of departure and return flight and flight time.
    Good for everyone
    , Nov. 2019
    The driver/guide, John was very, very knowledgeable on everything about the island, History and culture to real estate to geology to plants, etc, etc. This is a six hour tour that makes a lot of stops. It was raining much of the day but John made the stops and everything worked out very well. We would recommend for first timers or anyone that wants a good overview of the area.

    John was the best guide. He had an abundance of history and information and great stories to tell. The island is beautiful.
    Enlightening, beautiful and fun day
    , Nov. 2019
    Alex drove our group all around the island, which was delightful. Learning about the geological history of the land was very interesting. We were thoroughly impressed and entertained by his knowledge and enthusiasm.
    Shore excursion hilo tour with Liliuokalani Gardens Volcano park
    , Oct. 2019
    The excursion was great. When out of his way to show us different sights. Very patient with us. Explain diffirent sights and way of living in Hilo. Love it.
    Great for solo travelers
    , Sep. 2019
    Such a great tour. Covered so much! Great tour guide with great facts. As a solo traveler, a definite tour!
    Nicely paced trip around the hot spots near Hilo
    , Sep. 2019
    We enjoyed the fact that this was not on one of those giant buses. It was nice to only worry about a few couples getting on and off the bus vs a large crowd. Each stop was 20-30 minutes and they were spaced out to the point where you do not spend hours driving to get to a short 20 minute stop and leave. The variety of the stops between waterfalls, Volcano National Park, and other attractions kept the tour perfectly balanced. My wife and I really enjoyed this trip and I would recommend it to anyone.
    Hilo, Hawaii bus tour for cruise ship people
    Dee C
    , Jul. 2019
    The tour was very thorough and the driver and guide were both helpful and knowledgeable. It wasn't clear that we would have to buy our lunch at a gas station to take on the bus for later. Also, the tour ended up being 6 hours instead of 5 so it got a little long and people were antsy.
    , May 2019
    Our thanks to John our driver and guide, who made the tour amazing with his knowledge and cultural history. He had a great sense of humor which kept us entertained in between the many stops he made for us and or fellow travelers. If you book this tour make sure you request John.
    Good overview of Hilo and surrounding area
    , May 2019
    We enjoyed our small group. There were only 8 of us on the excursion. Very personal and very inclusive. Would do it again
    Great all encompassing tour of Hilo and surrounding areas.
    , May 2019
    The tour guide did an excellent job of getting us to a variety of locations on the island and keeping to a schedule that allowed us to see everything. This was a much better deal than the similar excursion offered by NCL.
    Where is the pickup point?
    , Mar. 2019
    Mel did a great job of taking us around and sharing his knowledge of the island and sites. We had a slow start however as the pickup was at least 1/2 mile outside where the other vendors pickup and drop off so a few couples were late in getting to the van. Providing a map would have been handy if they don't have access to the vendor area next time. The van had no markings and no hand sign was available to be seen when approaching where it was parked in a remote lot
