Wow where to begin! The tour itself was nice, and effective in visiting the whole island. But the real experience is going with a experienced, knowledgeable and fun tour guide!

My wife and I wanted to see as much of the island as possible without having to plan, Drive etc ourselves on our honeymoon. This is the perfect tour to do so. We feel like we say day’s worth of places in one day, while also not being in a rush. Derek was an excellent tour guide, being both knowledgeable and entertaining. Most recommended.

A very compound one day trip if you don’t have a lot of time but want to see all the Big Island. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and I had a great time, but I would say the best part was seeing the sea turtles!

Derek was our tour guide. He is amazing!!! Very genuine and made us feel comfortable to be ourselves. The tour didn’t feel like an history lesson, it was a fun and engaging experience. My favorite part was the bonding with other group members as well as Derek quirky jokes. He is very knowledgeable about the island and you can really tell he cares and love his job and the people that come visit.

I really enjoyed this tour. Our guide Derek Stuart was very friendly and knowledgeable. I liked the black sand beach and volcano. The walk to see Akaka Falls was a tough one for me as there were lots and lots of stairs going up and down . Overall had a great time!

This tour was a wonderful way to see the big island! I flew over from Oahu for the day and it did not disappoint!! My tour guide, Awana was fantastic. He talked about the island and its history the entire day!!! I am not sure I could talk AND drive as much as he did but he did it with style and awesomeness!!! Thank you Awana!!! Great way to see a lot of what the big island has to offer!

We had a great time. We did the circle tour and this allowed us to see areas of the island we otherwise would not have. Daniel was our tour guide and we found him to be fun, cool, and very knowledgeable.

Absolutely amazing!! Awana was the most informative tour guide I’ve ever taken. It was such a pleasure learning about the island, it’s culture, history and some of it’s very important leaders. Awana knew it all and even had great stories and anecdotes from his lovely family. Super friendly and the sites were spectacular. All in all, a truly great experience and I would highly recommend anyone take this trip again!! A must do!! ;)

Our tour guide, Awana, made us feel welcomed and excited to be touring the Big Island! Along the way we learned about Hawaiian culture, history, and travel sites to see during our visit. We had a blast! It was a long day, but it went by so fast. The van was spacious and the snacks were plentiful! 11/10 would go again!

Best tour to take. We were so lucky to get Derek as our guide for the day. What a fabulous bank of knowledge he has, and what a lovely man to spend the day with. Highlight of our trip. Got to stop at great spots, bakery for the Malasadas, waterfalls were beautiful, walked through the lava tube - awesome! The Black Sand Beach was especially memorable and we got right up close to the huge turtles! Provided a great lunch and small tour meant really getting to know the people we spent the day with, and made it very special. Knew everyone's name and had a fantastic day.

The Big Island tour was fantastic! We saw a lot of different sites and had plenty of time to take pictures. Brian was very knowledgeable about island history and kept the trip from being boring.

This is a LONG tour. However, the longest drive without a stop was only about 45 minutes, so again, not boring.

I do recommend, that if you are on the Big Island more than a day, take this tour the first day or as soon as possible. I wish I had instead of the last day of my visit. Brian pointed out many places to go see on your own. For example, landmarks, churches, historical sites, where to go snorkeling, and places to eat. Take notes on paper or your phone. One tour cannot go everywhere, but with Brian's recommendation, the rest of your stay on the island will be filled.

Fantastic way to see the whole island in one day. If you are short on time it’s great and if you have lots of time on the island it gives you a great overview to plan the rest of your trip. Our tour guide: Kala Holiday was the best. He gave us lots of history of the island and is a great photographer too! I highly recommend this activity.
