Perfect place to see a part of the Big Island that is so much of the history of Hawaii. The food was great and John was great; very informative and entertaining.

The bus picked us up from our hotel about 4:15pm; its at least 1hr and 30 minutes to the Ranch; Maybe for people who have younger kids and families, or for older couples looking nice night, but for us....(50 year old), we felt it could have been better. For $200 per couple in the month of September, you don't get... More

This was my first visit to Hawaii and it will not be my last. The evening at the ranch was more than I expected. When booking my tours, the Hilton representative strongly suggested that I attend this event and I thanked her for doing so. As a solitary traveller, I was made to feel at home while receiving a great... More

Wanted something different than another luau and this did not disappoint. We opted for the less expensive option to drive ourselves up there and we also shaved a lot of time off the commute. Only 45 minutes from the Mauna Lani resort. It also allowed us to leave when it was over, without having to wait for two tour busses... More

This would've been the perfect night except it was a little rainy and couldn't see the sky. I was hoping to see all of the stars. The food was great, the entertainment was great, the entire family had an awesome time. Would definitely do again. Also the driver who took us out was awesome, he talked for 1.5 hours about... More

I thoroughly enjoyed this well planned evening from the time I stepped on the bus in Kona. The driver was very knowledgeable and personable and made our journey to the ranch very interesting. I loved every part of the evening from the open bar, delicious food, wonderful views, ranch animals including Miss Piggly Wiggly ( a highlight) star gazing through... More

My friend and I had an excellent time at the ranch. The staff was incredibly kind and accommodating. We started off the evening by taking the tour bus from Kona to the ranch. This was such a treat. Our tour bus driver gave us a lot of information about the island as we drove north toward the ranch. He pointed... More

We had a wonderful time, perfect for all ages. Great music, great Steaks and Chicken. The views were spectacular, we even saw a Lunar Rainbow. We made s'mores, they have horseshoes, branded our own souvenir, my grandsons are 2 1/2 & 4. 1/2 and they learned how to rope a cow. All 6 of us had a great time. The... More
