My husband and I took this tour with another company several years ago. This recent holiday was to take our children and grandchildren to show them the history, culture and beauty of Hawaii. Our guide David, having grown up on the island, showed us so many things and we were able to learn so much about Hawaii during the day.... More

This tour company is excellent! They picked my husband and I up in an immaculate Mercedes van that can sit 12 people, but maximum passengers they bring is 8, so there's more comfort & room for this all day trip. Our tour guide, Nathan is wonderful! He is super funny, very informative, telling us about the flora and fauna, where... More

Loved this 12 hour tour with a native guide, Makanu. Super food all along the way, incredible views, vegetation, waterfalls. Best value for 12 hours of entertainment. Leave the driving to them. The Road to Hana is too treacherous to drive alone, plus, rental cars are not allowed to go all the way around the island. Only a little past... More

We decided to book a tour so we wouldn't have to worry about driving. We booked it through the pool company at the hotel. The sales person assured me we would be going to the seven pools and it is listed on the company's brochure. Unfortunately, stopping the van in front of the pools and saying quick take a picture...

He told stories as he saw point of interests like he was reading from a book, very detail, incorporated with his own personal experiences and has a great sense of humor, hilarious if I may say. Some of the waterfalls we saw were almost... More
