    Real Early pick up at 5am in Waikiki, but we were so excited that we didn’t care. Flight with Hawaiian airlines to Hilo and we were treated by our driver, Kalia and found out it was just the two of us on a tour! Score...a private tour. We stopped at a local supermarket to buy

    This tour promises so much but you are at risk of having it cancelled and having very little feedback or response from Polynesian Adventure Tours. At the time our tour was to be undertaken there was the eruption from the volcano which we could understand the helicopter sector of

    Aloha and thank you for your feedback. We apologize for the lack of clarity that you expressed and would like to assure you that we have further clarified the messages related to the helicopter portion of the tour based on your input. As mentioned, the cancellation of your helicopter flight was due to weather conditions; specifically a lack of visibility which may occur even when there is no volcanic activity as safety is of utmost importance. If you have further questions about your refund, please contact our call center at 1-877-622-1780. Mahalo.

    Very long day but overall a good tour. The Blue Hawaiian helicopter pilot for the volcano tour concentrated on his aerial acrobatics and the ride was nauseating. Two passengers throwing up and two nauseous by the time we landed. Great view of the volcano but too sick from

    We took the island hop to the Big Island and it was great. It was a very long day but well worth it. Our day started with an amazing helicopter ride over the volcano areas and waterfalls. We then meet up with the rest of the tour group at rainbow falls. Most of the afternoon was
