          Great tour of the Big Island
          Kate, our guide, was great. She was fun, informative about the Island, responsive to interests of the group. Lunch was included and it was great. Snacks and homemade bread were also available. Wonderful day spent exploring the Big Island with a wonderful guide. Would definitely book with Hawaii Guides again and will recommend to friends/family visiting the Big Island. Mahalo

          Great sight seeing tour with
          This small group tour allowed us to visit some of the island’s highlights in one day with an outstanding, knowledgeable guide in the comfort of a lovely Mercedes’ van. The views of Rainbow and Akaka falls, Valley of the Kings, and volcanoes were fantastic. We will return to our favourite places on our own. Our guide was Derek Stuart. He was friendly, entertaining, engaging, accommodating, and extremely knowledgeable about all things Hawaii. He answered all questions and was curious about the people he was guiding. An all-around nice human to spend the day with! He also made recommendations for other tours and activities. We’re so glad we did this tour. It’s a long day but we’ll paced with many rests between stops. The lunch and snacks were great. The tour was worth the price and we’d recommend it. Simone and Barry

          Great tour. Excellent Guide
          All day tour in a clean comfortable van. Small group of 11 friendly people. Guide Katie was amazing. Knows all the plant life birds and animals as well as the history of the Big Island and the geography. In addition to the provided meals bought the group donuts cookies and candy throughout the day. Went above and beyond to insure we saw all the advertised stops and some extras as well. Highly recommend this company and Katie.

          Not really worth the hype
          The overall experience was underwhelming. The tour was rushed, the guide wasn’t too engaged, and the planning was haphazard. I could do the whole thing myself spending half the money with better planning. I can bear with such an experience if it cost $70, but expect better for the price.

          Great Customer Service
          Our guide, Dominick, picked us up from our hotel right on time and he was very personable. On our drive to the Kona coffee farm tour, he was sharing all kinds of interesting facts about the history in the area. We had a good selection of lunch and dinner options. The tour of the coffee farm was a neat experience and we learned a lot about the coffee process. Unfortunately, my husband started to feel sick and we decided to end our day early. Dominick was very helpful in making sure we got an Uber back to our hotel and providing recommendations about what to do when we were feeling better. It was definitely disappointing that we couldn't finish the tour, but we would absolutely book with them again if we get the chance.

          Take care of your guests.
          Horrific experience, we were unable to complete our tour of the island as the company allowed someone with an obvious upper respiratory disease to join the trip. Inconsiderate of the tour guide to not request the sick party to depart from the trip and rebook. Would highly recommend looking at a different company.

          Wonderful tour of the mid to south end of the island.
          It was a fantastic long day with a lot of driving between stops, but Domonik made it so enjoyable. He was very knowledgeable about history, geography, plants and many other topics about Hawaii. The volcano park was a highlight for us. You don't realize how big the crater is from pictures. The lunch was excellent eaten in a beautiful spot. Dinner of sandwich or salad was just right before the long drive home. It was fascinating to see so many types of landscape and the huge difference in weather from Hilo,Kona and the Volcano park. I highly recommend this tour.

          Great tour! It is long because of the driving. Door to door for me was 12 hours. Dominik was engaging, knew a lot of history ad culture. All around good experience! Way better than trying to do all the stops on your own .

          Full day full of facts
          12 hours of knowledge dropping action. Relaxing tour of a coffee farm, info about the the two types of lava on Big Island, history of Hawaii, some NASA facts, a nice lunch and dinner along with a couple of short hikes. We’ve been quoting our guide Dominic the rest of the trip. It made the rest of our visit more engaging knowing more about the island.

        Oahu circle tour was booked well in advance. The company was to contact me a day prior to the tour with details on a pickup location. I called Hawaii Outdoor Guides late in the day prior to the tour as I had received no call, text, or email. I was informed the tour had been cancelled. I was informed the company sends notice of cancellation out 72 hours before a tour. I had a record of texts, calls, and emails for that period with no record of contact with Hawaii Outdoor Guides. Their customer service was apologetic, but could not tell me how or if they had contacted me. There was no effort to rebook me on another tour. I realize errors happen and despite good reviews of their tours, I won’t use them again.

        We were very disappointed with this company. We waited for more than an hour at the pick-up point and the driver had never shown up. We kept chasing them via email, chat and calls but never got any reply for the entire time we were waiting. After an hour and a half of chasing, we finally got an email advising us that the tour was cancelled due to lack of people participating.
        We find this company so unprofessional and would never book with them again!

        Dominick did a great job taking us on an island tour. He was friendly, humerous and informative on geography, cultures and history. The time goes by fast while he safely drove us around the island. I would say it was one of the best tours I've been on.

        Dominik, our tour guide, opened up a whole new perspective about this island state. He’s knowledgeable about Hawaiian culture , history, language, historical sights, surfing lore, and great food trucks. He made sure we enjoyed each stop by giving us a timeline for when to get back.
        Our group was only six in number, making it easy to ask questions and get acquainted.
        If you want an all-day in-depth education about Hawaii, you can’t go wrong with this company and with Domonik.

        What a fun tour. Great way to see the island. First time here and this gave me a great perspective of the history and areas to visit. Dominik was great. So much great info.
        Will be back to Hawaii again. Now, I know what areas to hone in on when I come.

        I researched at least 20 tours before choosing this one. I had high expectations for this tour and it exceeded them all! Great information about Hawaii's history and culture. The tour skips the lame tourist traps like Coral City and goes to the best sights. Our amazing guide Bryce gave great recommendations of where to go at each stop. He called our orders in advance for Giovanni's shrimp truck so we skipped the long line - btw the shrimp scampi lived up to the hype (bring cash as it's cash only). He pointed out whales at our scenic stops. I never felt rushed at any time. We went everywhere: Hanauma Bay, the Macadamian nut farm where you can taste samples of the sweets and coffee or grab a freshly cut coconut to sip on, Sunset Beach where we saw some of a paddle board competition, a park in the Northshore with amazing views of Chinaman's hat, Kualoa Ranch, another small beach where we saw two see turtles sunning themselves, a little town in Northshore where I got tiger's blood shaved ice, and lastly Dole pineapple plantation to taste delicious fresh pineapple. You aren't just a face in the crowd in this small intimate tour. The small group allowed for lots of time sightseeing instead of loading and unloading a giant bus or waiting on late people. I can't recommend it enough. And they give you a sweet gift at the end. Don't think twice about booking. You will thank yourself!

        The tour guide/ bus driver was quite good. She knew a lot of history, but each stop was definitely meant to sell you something. She recommended something (must try the...) at each stop to eat or drink. The trip did hit highlights along the coast but the only thing you had time for at the pineapple plantation and the macadamia nut farm was to buy something. You did not see ANYTHING but the gift shops.

        Aloha! Thank you for the time you took to write a review of our tour! I'm so happy that your tour guide knew a lot of history of the island. It also seems like you were happy to see the highlights. I wanted to respond to the comment that this tour has too many commercial stops: We instruct our guides to let our guests know what are the highlights of the stops. For many people visiting Hawaii these things are food so we mention what food is available at the stop and try hard to stress other things to see that don't include spending money. For example when we go to Dole pineapple plantation we mention that the Dole whip is popular but also the free pineapple cutting demonstration where you learn how to choose a ripe pineapple and cut it properly (with free samples), visit the Koi pond, see the pineapple garden, look at the painted eucalyptus and don't forget the restroom before we leave. Now we did mention the Dole whip because there is often a line and if we don't instruct our guests we might not be able have the time to order the popular dessert. This tour picks up guests from multiple spots in Waikiki around 8 am and don't have a stop where you can buy an item until about 10:30 am. We do our best to show you sights that are interesting and would be on your list if you went around the island but apologize if this felt too commercial to you. We list all of the sights where we stop so recommend that you look at the itinerary closely when choosing a tour. Come back to us with a private tour next time and we promise not to stop at a single place that offers items for sale. Mahalo for being our guest!

        This is a tour which gives a thorough overview of Oahu at a price which is unbeatable. If fortunate enough to get Bryce as your guide, you will be treated to a wealth of knowledge. We were picked up early in the day and from that moment on were in the hands of a man who is funny, natural and generous. We were a small group of four and very diverse in our activity levels, but no prob, Bryce was able to manage this with gracious aplomb. If you want a tour with depth of history about Hawaii, great rest stops with the best tips on where to visit, buy and eat, but not much time to explore, this is for you. The day flew by, and even hoaky was turned into fun with a sense of humor. When at the tourist trap Dole plantation, walk right through the store, get out back and explore the gardens in peace and solitude while the hordes are loading up on trinkets, candy and ice cream. You won't be sorry. Oh, and take his suggestion on getting the best shaved ice for 3 bucks that two people can barely finish.
