This tour is the best. It gives you a glimpse into all the history and beauty the Big Island has to offer, from walking through a lava tube, seeing the Volcanoes National Park and the sea turtles sunbathing on the black sand beach.
I also have to mention our tour guide Charlie made the experience even better. Charlie is funny, very informative and was willing and able to answer any and all of our questions.
If you are debating on whether to take the tour I say go for it. You will not be disappointed.
Everything was good. Food was great. The group we went with all bonded like family, partly because of Derricks games involving us all. The only thing that would have made it better was if we could have gotten in the waterfalls...Derrick was the best!!Mahalo

A brilliant tour guide and lovely day out to around the whole of big island. Very informative local guide who was full of information, history and local tips which made the day very enjoyable. I would recommend this amti evrryone who wants to see all parts of Hawaii.
Great experience. Our guide for the 12 hour tour was Kala. Native to Big Island, he exuded knowledge. Proud of Hawaiian heritage, he was an enthusiastic guide, teacher, and humorist.
Great trip, lots of information and bath room breaks. The only problem was with the office as to the directions where we should meet the bus and a request for a front seat for handicapped was not forwarded to the driver.
My husband and I went without expectations and we were very surprised! The small group made it very personalable . We thought our guide Sergio was professional, knowledgeable and had a wonderful sense of humor ! Stopped at a bakery so we could enjoy fantastic doughnuts. If you want to have a wonderful day take a Wasabi tour!
The best we ever experiences. The guide was spectacular. Would highly recommend him. Not a dull moment in 12 hours
Great trip to get a flavor of the island. The tour guide makes the difference and ours has a degree in geology and had a great knowledge of the island. The day is long, but well worth the time and money. I would suggest taking this tour early in your stay. It will give you many other places you may want to go back and explore.
We loved the itinerary, food and guide (Sergio). All the other reviews are totally accurate.. Great tour. Can't recommend enough
Our guide Dru was extremely knowledgeable and catered to our every need. This tour circled the island and gave us a wonderful overview of this sights on the Big Island. We would do this tour again and would highly recommend it to others.
This was a great tour. Matt was very informative. Had a great time and saw the entire island. We go every 5 years fir our anniversary and try to go to a different island each time.
This was a great anniversary trip!
Great overview of the Big Island which included as many stops as possible in a full day and Dreu provided excellent narrative along the way.
The tour was excellent! Erik, the tour guide, is full of knowledge about history, volcanoes, lava, etc. highly recommend!
Our tour guide (Kala Holiday) was absolutely amazing with his wealth of knowledge.
We loved that he gave historic information about Hawaii as well as the language, culture and other tidbits of information while driving from one location to the next.
As we got closer to the next stop, he would provide information on the landmark so that when we got out of the vehicle, we already had the knowledge and could see and understand it at our own leisure.
I could hear other groups gathered around their tour guide trying to listen to what we had already learned while on the drive, which allowed us to venture further to take pictures and enjoy it more than if we had to stand together and listen.
Thank you Kala and Wasabi Tours!
This trip was GREAT! Dreu was an incredible guide and shared so many great tidbits about the island and history. We learned places to snorkel, eat, and more. This was a PERFECT way to kick off our first full day on the Big Island and set us up for a fun remainder of our vacation.
Eric was the best tour guide, he was so knowledgeable, nice and funny. We had so much fun, met nice people on the tour and got to see so many highlights around island. Would definitely recommend
I truly enjoyed this tour. It gives you the opportunity to explore this great Island and was well paced. Our tour guide Brian was great and provided an extensive history on the Island and culture. I highly recommend this tour especially if you are new to the Island.
Eric was very knowledgeable and fantastic personality. Enjoyed the Big Island tour and saw some amazing sites!
The tour was great, made awesome by our driver Brian. Brian regaled us with Hawaiian folklore which made this an exceptional day!
Our guide Dereck was on time and very helpful his friendly nature and knowledge of the island was exceptional. We not only saw everything we wanted to see but learned a lot about each
We had great fun on an 11 hour day trip. It was a long day but the guide Matt continuously kept giving us very informative information. He also kept everybody involved in conversation. Matt is very knowledgable and respectful.
Matt, our driver and guide was great and exceptional. We learned a lot from him about the Big Island.
Safe driver too. Also brought us raincoats when it rained. Great job Matt and thank you.
We opted to do this tour on our first day in Hawaii, so that we could see the whole island and determine if there were any areas that we wanted to return to on our own! Our guide, Kahikina, was fabulous! He was SOO knowledgeable, funny, easy to listen to and personable.
Our tour lasted 11 hours! Kahikina took us to all the places he could from coffee farm, to water falls, to volcanoes and steam vents, through the forests of eucalyptus, to black sand beaches as well as lunch at a beautiful orchid farm. We were able to see the landscape on all parts of the island! I would highly recommend this tour!
Awana was my tour guide and he is an excitement to be around. The tour covers a large portion of the island with a lot of amazing sceneries that are picture perfect. Many things we saw shows the beauty of this island. The tour covers vast history and is quite educational. I can honestly say I am glad that attend this tour, it is a enriching experience.
We loved loved loved Juliana! She was exceptional!! Very knowledgeable enthusiastic, patient and sweet!
She taught us so much about the history and geography of Hawaii. She made this experience fun and exciting. We loved her stories. The tour and touring with Juliana, we highly recommend. Thank you!!
Top notch! Request Sergio! All over the island adventure is more than expected. Great history. Many stops to break up the trip. Highly recommend.
Charlie exceeded all expectations. This well planned itinerary came to life with Charlie as a guide. He possesses a vast knowledge of Hawaii, Hawaiian history and folklore, Hawaiian geology, biology, botany and factors affecting Hawaii. Wish there was a pdf of all we learned on this tour.
My wife and I went on an all day tour with Wasabi Tours hosted by Mr. K (aka "Bruddah K"). The tour hit the hot spots my wife was hoping for. The lunch prepared by Mr. K and his wife was the kind of homemade bento lunch that my wife would make for us, and was delicious. We highly recommend this tour.
Mr. K was the tour guide on my trip. He was great! Mr. K knows so much about the island. If anyone had a question, he was happy to reply. He tells great stories, shares the culture, and tells funny jokes. One thing I appreciated was being told approximately how long it would be between stops. I ended my day feeling like I had seen the island well. Lunch and snacks were provided. Lunch was delicious. Enjoyed my day very much! Thank you to Viator for helping me connect with this tour!
This tour was very enjoyable and hit all the important spots. Our tour guide kept things light and fun, and seemed well versed in the history of the island.
