“Must See”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

This short drive off the main highway is absolutely worth it. If you have time it's fun to explore the valley itself but only if you are the adventurous "off-road" type.

“Great view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Waipio valley view is so beautiful.. You can see haleakala volcano of Maui in a sunny day.. Worth the hour and 15 minutes drive if you're staying at the hilton in waikoloa.

“Stunning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Loved everything and disliked nothing! Stayed at Cliffhouse Cottage at Waipio, best views in the world, great host Richard! Went horseback riding with Nanaalapa Stables through absolutely breathtaking scenery of the Valley and its flora and fauna. Without a doubt, the highlight of our time on the Big Island...don't think anything will surpass this experience!

“Beautiful vista of The Valley of the Kings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

It was a beautiful drive getting here and then a beautiful vista looking out. It is a state park so there are washrooms (well maintained). Although spectacular look out - Pulolo Valley (west of Waipi'o Valley) is even more spectacular. You can check out my review on that too if this is of interest.

“Ridetherim Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

We took the Waipi's Waterfalls on ATV's tour with Brendon and Gabriella. It was just the four in our party and we had a fabulous afternoon. The ATV's were relatively new and in great condition. Our pre-trip safety check was thorough and we were comfortable before we started out. Our first stop was the King's swimming pond, and we enjoyed a really nice lunch there. We drove on to the second stop, which overlooked the sacred valley. It was breathtaking. Our guides were knowledgeable and made the day truly memorable with their informative dialogue. It was a great outing and I highly recommend it!
