My family and I loved this tour. My son could not stop talking about it. He took a great deal of pictures.
Excellent tour. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and we learned a lot. Our guide was really personable and you could tell he enjoyed his job as well as sharing his knowledge. II liked the small size of the tour and our guide kept us on track and on time from beginning to end. Sorry forgot our tour guides name but he is an older gentleman who originally was from the East Coast This was a great company to work with. Hassle free reservations, excellent communications and information provided by the tour operator. Pickup and drop off at our hotel was a breeze. Would definitely do another tour with this company again. Thanks
We had an unforgettable experience on this tour. Got to see some beautiful and amazing sites. Our tour guide, Phoenix, was wonderful. He was knowledgeable about the area and kept us involved. I would strongly recommend this tour to everybody visiting the big island.
There are no words to describe the GREAT time we had on our tour with John. John was AWESOME The information and knowledge he had was amazing The small groups made us feel like family. I cant imagne not going on this tour. We plan on going back to the Big Island just because of the information and our experience we had on the tour. From the time we was picked up at the airport till the time we was dropped off was amazing the black sand beaches to the rainforest to the lava tubes to the night volcano to everything between. If you go to Hawaii and dont do this tour, your trip will not be complete THANKS JOHN
This tour was wonderful. From the first time we got off the bus, to the last stop, we were amazed at the beauty we saw. And watching the lava flow at twilight was both romantic and gorgeous
This tour was wonderful from beginning to end. I can’t stop telling all of my friends about how much fun we had and the things we saw. Thank you, John.
