We are sorry if you did not enjoy the tour. As we informed you, one of our mules developed a leg problem at the last minute. We had to switch out the mule and re-harness another in order to do the tour. We did not...More

This was a terrible tour. The wagon ride is maybe 15minutes, with the rest of the tour conducted in a dirty old van with no air conditioning and non opening windows. Bob, the guide, is obviously sick of the tour, and past caring about customers....More

Sorry you were not pleased with the tour. We were behind schedule 5 min because of delays on the Waipio hill. In regard to blowing the horn on on the hill, this was to avoid a dangerous situation. The vehicle ahead decided they did not...More

The "tour" takes about 1.5 hours but most of that time is check-in, driving down into the valley, and waiting for the wagon. Time on the wagon was short and total ground covered was vey little since we stopped every few feet. The best views...More

Can't recommend. When I called the person that answered the phone was extremely rude. But we booked anyway. The tour would have been a lot better if the guides had been more friendly and accommodating. It really sounds like they don't want business the way...More

We looked at a couple of tours of the valley and choose this one because of the price and the excursion time. If you are looking for a well-oiled, premium tour this isn’t for you. If you are into petting wild goats on the side...More

Easiest way to get tour is at the Neptune store as described in our website. It is about 1/2 mile before the lookout. Let us know if you have additional questions. Thanks
