Our tour guide was very knowledgeable of every stop on our tour! As we drove between our destinations he would point out fun and interesting sights which made the tour even better than described! He was a safe driver and we throughly enjoyed touring Hilo with C Big Island Tours.

I took my wife and two teenagers on this tour and we had an absolute incredible time. Being an engineer myself, I am quite skeptical about equipment, safety, and procedures. I must stay these guys were top notch. Redundant lines does not sound like much, but when you do this tour and then take a tour with only one line,... More

This past June (2014), we traveled through 5 different Hawaiian islands. The OTHER tours we took with Robert's Hawaii were LOUSY. Finally, however, we had the pleasure to go on the tour with C Big Island Tours and we were very pleasantly surprised. It is a mom and pop intimate tour van, rather than one of those huge buses or...

C Big Island was fantastically helpful from the moment I booked - letting me know that the 2 tours I had booked had an overlap, and offering to reschedule me onto 2 slightly different tours that wouldn't offer any repetition. Then in the few days before the tour I had to reschedule - not a problem for them. They found... More

I expected much more from this tour. I would have been great to swim in the hot pond or at the beach. Rent a car and visit those thing alone!

Aloha and thanks for your review. I'm sorry the tour was not up to what you expected but SAFETY is our number one concern for our customers and we do not allow swimming in the hot ponds because there has been bacterial infections that locals and visitors have got from there. The state finally put up a warning sign although... More

Oleathia was awesome...she arranged our plans and was a great point of contact for any questions we had. She made great suggestions as to places to eat and what else we might want to do each day...we were more than pleased. Money... More

Our group of 8 were taken on a wonderful tour of areas south of Hilo including the Punalu'u Black Sand Beach on 15 October 2013. The Volcano National Park was closed that day. The tour was informative, interesting and made especially memorable because of our Tour Guide Lawrence who did a great job!! He was the first tour guide to... More

What a great day and Yakiim was a great tour guide. Many thanks Mark and Yakiim for looking after us when the National Park was closed.

So glad you hear you had a wonderful time! The lava forest and falls has some great hidden treasures and it is still very raw Hawaii. The lava forest and falls tour is one of my personal favorites. Glad you liked it too. I will be sure to tell Yakim about this review. He will be so excited! More
