          Excellent Big Island day tour from Honolulu
          This tour was excellent. Everything was arranged for us - hotel transfers from Waikiki to Honolulu airport & return, they booked our flights to the Big Island and supplied boarding passes. Our guide David was waiting for us at Hilo airport. He took us straight to the Volcanoes National Park which was great to see in the morning with very few people around. He knew all the best places to go and stopped often so we could take photos and experience each place. There were only 4 people on our tour but David’s van can take more. He was knowledgeable about the history and didn’t overload us with too much info. The afternoon included more sightseeing around the towns and coastline including a walk around the markets, beaches, waterfall and more. The whole tour was so easy and well worth it. Highly recommended tour for people holidaying on Oahu but wanting to visit the Big Island of Hawaii.

          Excellent Tour.
          This tour was amazing. Our tour guide was so patient with us. I didn't eat breakfast in the morning because I woke up late and didn't want to miss my flight. I told him I didn't have time to eat amd without hesitation he took us all to a local mart to eat. That is the type of customer service I like. THANK YOU DAVID!!!!! The big island was so beautiful. My favorite part was the lava tube we walked through and the steam vents. The smell of that island is so crisp and clean. Unpoluted, Green, Black,( due to the lava rocks) Untouched, Virgin land. We ate strange fruit at the farmers market that were delicious. The views of the ocean from the top of the volcano was amazing. Absolutely worth the cost of this activity.

          The van was filthy, the driver seemed to be in a hurry, he also skipped the tequila and beer stops and instead bought us shave ice! Even though I told him we would rather stick to the planned stops because that's why we booked this tour, he did not.

          Nice Island Tour
          Nice Island Tour with lots of stops to see different parts of the island. Our tour guide was funny, nice, informative in making the tour one to remember. It was a smaller group that made it easier to enjoy the experience. The food was good. Just wished there was more time to stop at locations but there's alot to see in a day.

          Pyscho tour van driver
          Driver was cut off. He then got out at the next red light and tried to fight the person who cut him off. He was yelling screaming and pounding on his window. The van was full of customers. This was insane. So unprofessional. Driver should get fired. The man stayed calm thankfully or else we would have witnessed a fight or worse a shooting or a stabbing. I would never use tour net again.

          We had a great time! It was the perfect addition to mix in a different Hawaii experience than the beach. Our guide was awesome, very knowledgeable and the others on the tour were so fun! Highly recommend

          Best experience ever! Better than I could imagine!!
          This was our wedding and of course, I had no idea what I was signing up for, but Cindy was available every time I called with a question or concern, before we even arrived in Hawaii. She was so professional and helpful (and sweet) and was SO easy to work with. I truly cannot say enough about this team with every little detail being thought of and taken care of for you. Do yourself a favor, you cannot go wrong ~ and for the price, unreal. This was my second wedding, we eloped, and I wouldn't have changed a thing. My husband agrees as well. Cindy and her team are exceptional. Top notch!! I am so pleased and appreciative.

          Highly recommend-Flawless stress free wedding
          Our journey started 4,000 miles away! Trying to plan a wedding that far away should be stressful! It wasn’t! This group of wonderful people made our special day stress free and it was absolutely flawless. From the moment we contacted them, we were treated as family! All we had to do was set a date and they did the REST! I cannot recommend this group enough for your special day! The entire group was friendly, kind, caring, and respectful! They were prompt in their responses to our calls/texts/emails despite the time difference!

          Wedding Vow Renewal
          Jennifer and her crew were absolutely amazing!! I was so nervous with not knowing what expect the day of our wedding vow renewal but they exceeded my expectations. They were all so nice, attentive to our needs and very professional. Not to mention that everything was absolutely beautiful!! The location was breathtaking! I recommend them 100% for a wedding ceremony. You will not be disappointed!

          Not worth the price at all..!!
          We paid $375 for the tour for 2 adults and my 3 year old son+ paid separately for the activities at Dole Plantation +tips.. overall the tour costed us close to $450. Just not worth at all..!! The tour description says “entry/admission included” for most of the spots... but in reality they are all stop and go spots. We had rented a car during our visit to Oahu.. and we could have covered all the spots on our own. Even if you are not renting a car.. I came across a tour package at a local tour package stall, which was costing $39 per person(except Kuala ranch). That would be a better option. Also, We had to skip one of the spot because we had to get to the dole plantation before the closing time. For the price we paid...this was super super disappointing tour. I will definitely not recommend this to anybody at all.

        This is a wonderful, quick trip around the island. The whole bus was thankfully only 8 people total (3 groups). The pickup and drop-off was fairly quick as we were within the vicinity of each other.
        The drive around the island was pleasant - we did not feel rushed or pressed for time. My favorite area was the Amelia Earheart point - it has a nice view of the ocean.
        For an 8 hour tour, it is a good way to quickly enjoy small sections of the islands to visit for a longer time at a later date.

        Tour was very good. All the stops were great. Check it out on- line. Our favorite was the macadamia farm and coffee. There were several samples of coffee and macadamia nuts to try. All were very good. Do not buy any coffee or macadamia nuts where the hotels are located, way too pricey. Buy when on the tour, much cheaper. The Japanese temple was very interesting.

        Driver was friendly and knowledgable. He needs a headset so everyone can hear him. We had several photo op stops, but needed more than 30 minutes for lunch. And could use more than 30 minutes for the temple and Dole plantation.

        Eddie was an excellent tour guide. Knowledgeable in all areas of the island, including the past. He handled the full buss of passengers very professionally as well as friendly. The day flew by. Hawaii time is the only time he ran on so don't feel rushed, kick your feet up, and enjoy your tour!

        Loved this tour! It has been our favorite tour so far. We did this tour within the first couple of days we were on the island. It takes you to so many different areas/places for just enough time to experience it & decide which areas we really loved so we could go back there and spend more time another day.
        If we hadn’t gone on this tour, we definitely wouldn’t have a good holistic view of the whole island.
        Naser, our guide (& friend by the end of the day), was awesome! He definitely made our tour special and was so informative. I wish he could be our tour guide for all of our tours!
        I absolutely recommend this tour! The breathtaking beauty and the fun, non touristy food truck village we stopped at for lunch are great memories we will have forever!

        Went on a tour yesterday and had a great experience! Eddie was our tour guide and was clearly knowledgeable about the island and Hawaiian culture. Really appreciated his love for HI and its rich history. Tour included some beach stops for pictures and spotting sea turtles. Loved where he took us to have fresh seafood lunch! Overall a well-rounded tour and greatly recommended if you're visiting the island for the very first time.

        Enjoyed being a great overview of the island. Freddie our driver was very friendly and interacted very well with everyone. It was a great basis for finding where I want to return to later. The Dole Plantation was my least favorite part- highly commercial. The beach stops were the best. A lot of driving through little towns. It's a long day but worth it. Freddie was very accommodating and that made everything so much better.

        Just returned with my 3 young adult daughters after touring with Chief Henry. It was mostly drive by tour with several quick stops for photos and Henry made it enjoyable with his knowledge and humor.
        It’s a great way to see some highlights of Oahu and then return on your own to those places you want to explore more. So I recommend taking this tour at the beginning of your vacation.
