I booked Marylou's Tours online several weeks before our February excursion. She responded very quickly with details and price ($75 per person). I had read many glowing reviews before booking and felt confident that I had made the right choice. We were met at the port in Hilo. There were 3 vans with Marylou, Ken and Kyle waiting for us....

We went with the Discover Hawaii Tours group from Oahu for the one day eco tour. Because it was raining throughout the day we didn't see much, which was quite disappointing. However our tour guide YB made the tour memorable. He was so friendly and really knew the island very well. I believe he went above and beyond to try... More

From the moment I called to discuss the details of booking this tour, to the hug at the end of the day, Marylou's Big Island Tours surpassed my expectations! Marylou, her husband, Ken and her son, Kyle work together to provide the best possible Island experience. In total, they own three 7-passenger vans which they use to accommodate from one... More

We went on a tour with Warren Costa on February 3, 2015 and it was wonderful. From the lava tube to the hike up to the top of the crater, it was such an amazing and informative day. Warren is extremely well educated, and we learned and saw things that I don't think we would have with any other tour... More

As this was our first time in Hawaii, I did a lot of research and settled on booking tours of Hilo and Kona with Mary Lou's Tours. This is a family run company and they have three GM vans that will hold up to 7, driven by Mary Lou, Ken (husband) and Kyle (son). They have a set itinerary or... More

My wife and I spent both days of our cruise trip being driven around the big island by Kyle from Marylous big island bus tours. Both days were great. Where we went was done in complete consultation with Kyle. As a group we decided what we wanted to see and do . I was keen to see the recent lava... More

We went on a tour on the 25th November this year and we really enjoyed the day and felt it was really worth the 75 dollars we toured the island with Ken who really knew his stuff it is the perfect way to do a tour never more than 6 people travel in comfort

If you are looking for a tour that is poorly planed and not worth the money than this is for you. You start the day by meeting in a market, and then you are led to Mark's beat up truck that you travel in all day. Once you get over the smell of mildew in the car, you have to... More

I wanted something fun that my 24 year old geeky son and could do at Volcano National Park. Warren Costa's Native Guide put together a fun and informative day that took us from the steaming caldera, to the rainforest, to the ocean. He knew about all aspects of the environment and geology and packed a delicious Hiwaiian style lunch that... More
