Although it was a very long day 4am pick-up! I would thoroughly recommend this tour! It is a great way to get a sense of the biggest island of Hawaii and it was surprising how many different landscapes/scenery the island has to offer. Our bus driver Kala was exceptionally knowledgeable and likable and made the tour insightful throughout. Personal highlights... More

This was an outstanding 4-plus hour tour with champion tour master Lori Aitchison as driver and guide. We took the small-group version (20 persons max) offered through a Holland America cruise. Lori gave an in-depth tour of the volcanos park, including spectacular crater views with smoke and fire, plus a walk through a lava tube. But she kept us fully... More

This is the feedback sent to Polyad which may help others:- 1. The meet and greet was timely, relatively informative and courteous from our hotel to the airport. 2. On arrival at Kona, we were met by our driver, Tommy, whose knowledge, enthusiasm, dry humour and passion for his homeland kept us entertained throughout the day. We loved him and... More

Despite the early start and long day this is really excellent and highly recommended if you want to see The Big Island in an organised fashion. Coffee: plenty of coffee to sample Black sand beach: plenty of black sand and maybe a turtle Volcano: fingers crossed on seeing some lava. Also lunch there which is an added extra but good... More

Picked us from our hotel. Took us to coffee and macadamia farms. Visited the volcano that was so cool. Had lunch at the restaurant. Spent heaps of time at the volcano. The rest of the time traveling around the island. It was good seeing the sights. The bus driver gave us a good description of the history around the island.

Our native Hawai'ian driver, Kala (sp?) was amusing, entertaining, and well-informed. He shared many things about his culture and encouraged questions. This is a really good way to see the whole island and included many adventures including the black sand beach at Punalu'u (there were turtles when we were there), the Hawai'i Volcanoes Park including a walk through a lava...
