We did the tour on 10/13/21. It was excellent! We were driven down into the valley and were able to get an "as close as you can" view of Hiilawe Falls. The night before our tour the valley received significant rain, so additional waterfalls were present as well. On the day of our visit there were high level clouds so the very top of the falls were not visible. The van tour drives you through a few streams and small rivers to access the rear portion of the valley. Through the tour, you are educated on the history of the valley and the people living there. We saw numerous types of fruit trees growing wild. In addition, we met the wild horses living there. This tour is an absolute must.

Douglas was our guide. He was amazing - he is a native to Hawaii and vey knowledgeable about Waipio Valley and the people, history, landscape of the area. The ride down is bumpy but fun and the views are breathtaking. You enter into an area that is significantly more remote than the rest of the island and you can appreciate the raw beauty of the landscape. Wild horses may come greet you at the bottom of the Valley - they came up to our van and we were able to pet them. Highly recommend Waipio Valley Shuttle and Douglas.

A highlight of our trip to the Big Island. Informative, beautiful and fun! Make sure your body can take being shaken and jolted especially on the way up. Our guide was a truly special person who made this an unforgettable experience.

We did a morning tour and were fortunate to visit during one of the very rare non-rainy days. Our driver had lived in the Valley his entire life and was very knowledgeable and eager to share his family's history and culture with us. The valley was absolutely breathtaking and our guide was very informative. He made it fun and memorable for our kids as well. I can't recommend this tour highly enough. If you're on the big island, this is a must-see!!!
