This trip encompassed everything one could want in a day trip around the entire big island. Our guide, Robert, went above and beyond in our experiences. His knowledge of the tour stops and Hawaiian history was very appreciated. The stops at the falls were especially amazing! Highly recommend this full day trip!!

This was another amazing trip. Shout out to Derek Stuart our tour guide and drive for making this trip worth it. Not only was he very knowledgeable about the island and the stops we made along the way, but he was attentive to all of us, answering any questions we have and oh boy did we have a lot. He also shared his personal experience on the island which was an added bonus that made the experience even more exhilarating. I would definitely recommend that anyone considering to take this tour to do. You will not regret it.

First and foremost, our tour guide,Tyler, was amazing. Extremely knowledgeable about the island, friendly and truly wanted to make our experience memorable - we’re Ohana! The van was comfy and we saw the entire island. Coffee farms, volcanoes and waterfalls. It takes an entire day but well worth it

Wonderful day trip with local guide Awana who gave a great commentary on everything from local history to the geology. Black beach stop amazing for lunch 🍱 and several turtles sunning themselves there - waterfalls, rainforest, bakery stop and locally grown coffee tasting plus many washroom breaks as well as lots of iced bottles of water/canned drinks and snacks. Best way to see entire island from Kona to Hilo and Waimea in the N!

Long but awesome day! Our guide Awanna was knowledgeable, funny, a great driver and an all around nice guy. We experienced a teaser trip of what the big island offers. Just wish there was an opportunity to swim in a waterfall. Overall a fun experience.

Our tour guide, Robert was the absolute best. His knowledge of Hawaiian history blew me away. We covered a lot of the island in one full day. It was a good pace and Robert kept it interesting during the drive times between stops. Highly recommend the tour and Robert our guide.

Drew was an exceptional tour guide, delivering the perfect combination of historical facts, legends and lore, as he took us on the circle tour. We had perfect weather throughout the day as we visited multiple sights around the island. Drew took the opportunity to understand the goals of each guest on out tour. He pointed out different activities, sites and restaurant recommendations to those of us who would be exploring the island on our own later. This tour is a must for those who want a great overview of what the island has to offer. I can’t imagine another tour guide could have done a better job than Drew!

A very wonderful tour led by Brett who was both well informed and enjoyed what he was doing. A long day as expected but no other way to see this island overall in a day. Nice lunch. Tour was not rushed. Weather turned out great. Thanks Brett.

Our tour guide, Brett, is the best guide I have seen of all my travel experience. I have travelled a lot in the world, went on many different tours. Brett really stands out. He put you instantly at ease, very knowledgeable and worked very hard to make sure everyone was having a great time. He even played Ukulele while we were eating lunch. He brought the Hawaii flowers for all the ladies, decorated the vehicles with some local flowers. He provided water and snack throughout the trip, even hand sanitizer throughout the trip! Although it was a 12-hour tour, but he made it so enjoyable that you felt times just flew by. I have to say his tour is definitely the highlight of my entire Hawaii vacation experience. You should come to Hawaii to just meet Brett!

Great to see the whole island in one day, but there was a lot more driving than I was prepared for! The stops were all 20 minutes at most, and weather got in the way of our last stop. But the tour guide was very knowledgeable and told great stories and jokes!

Awana was an incredible tour guide! He was like a walking encyclopedia of knowledge of Hawaii, and had a lovely way about him. He made the 11 hour day lots of fun as we covered the whole island! I definitely would want to travel with him again.

The tour was amazing. I loved seeing Hawaii and learning about the island from our tour guide, Brett. He was very knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating. He was willing to take pictures for people, he knew short cuts for people who were not as fit to do the short hikes. The food was great and he played music during lunch. Brett was even prepared for rain by providing us all with rain coats. The first aid kit he provided helped someone who fell. I would recommend this tour for anyone new to the island. Thanks, Brett!

This tour of Big Island in a day is exactly what it is. If you're time is short on the Island OR you just want 1 day of taking a break a break from the beach- this is it. I love the little touches on the tour- Started off a Kona Coffee Farm to try Kona coffee, stopped at the best bakery I've ever been to and tried Masalada which is a much, Black Sands Beach, Volcanoes National Park, 2 waterfalls and a pretty lookout point. The tour offered plenty of water and snacks and rain jackets as needed. The van was super clean and Aaron was very knowledgeable. You literally drive around the entire Island and see how different the climates are. A must do-
