This was one of our best tours. The vehicle was more than adequate - everyone was comfortable.Jill was very informative and took us to many local businesses we wouldn't have gone to on our own. Really enjoyed the Donkey Balls candy shop! Also, Coffee Plantation was a wonderful - yummy coffee, and this was the Beautiful side of the Big Island. Will come back!

Josh and Jill Grotkin provide wonderful tours of the island of Hawaii through their Mauka Makai Adventures. Josh was our tour guide and did a wonderful job explaining the history of Hilo and the island. Josh's knowledge of the Kilauea volcano and the surrounding area was outstanding. We had a wonderful time on the tour and I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting the island of Hawaii.

There were 4 in our group wanting to get the most out of our time available. Our tour hostess and owner was amazing. Having been born and raised in the area, she had first hand knowledge of the Hilo and volcanic area. She had done her homework and imparted information and insight that made the trip one of the best we have ever taken. RW
