Josh was an extremely knowledgeable and personable guide providing just the right balance of information on the all-day tour. The park had partially reopened prior to our tour date so we were able to include this site on our visit. Would highly recommend.

We spent an enjoyable part of our day in the Kona area (our cruise ship was moored there) with this company. We toured a coffee plantation and saw some beautiful local beaches. The guide was very accommodating.

Aloha, Thank you for the nice review and feedback on TripAdvisor. We appreciate your family being flexible given the closure of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. As you saw, there is still much beauty to be enjoyed around the island. Thank you again for your support...More

We took the Historic Kona tour as a shore excursion and weren't disappointed. Jill was our very accommodating and thoughtful guide with her easy going manner and affable nature. It was akin to being driven around by a friend rather than a tour guide who...More
