I found Pepe on Tripadvisor and booked a private trip of KONA. We were two families with 4 adults and 3 kids (5,10 and 12 years of age) on Cruise. We wanted to see as much of the BIG Island and Pepe worked with me on figuring out the best Itinerary we could. He brought a clean vehicle (EXPEDITION ) that was big enough and comfortable for our party. We started our tour with travelling south towards South of KONA and Honaunau Bay. We loved KONA town and the whole the vibe of KONA and surroundings, Honaunau bay (and wish had more time available to spend there) and several other spots on the way to KONA Coast. We traded in snorkeling at Honaunau bay for traveling north to Kohala Coast and Polulu Valley. Stopped at KONA Coffee shop and tried the KONA coffee and RUM Cake, both delicious We were trying to fit in a lot for the day and Pepe did an awesome job at keeping track of the time and kept us informed of the time to make sure we don’t miss out on the top spots we wanted to see. After KONA Coast, we headed to KOHALA coast (what a contrast of scenery) onwards to countryside, Hawi town and then onwards to Polulu Valley lookout (A MUST if you have time ). What a SPOT I must say. Pepe was able to keep us on time and we spent some time at HAPUNA beach on the way back to KONA as well. Pepe suggested we spend time at Hapuna and we sure loved it. I am a drone enthusiast and have some amazing footage of the Polulu valley, Hapuna beach and Hoaunau Bay. After seeing all of the above on island, Pepe was able to get us back to Port to catch our tender (with tenders to spare) for our Cruise. We did not feel stressed at all the whole time we were with Pepe Pepe is very knowledgeable of the area and was able to answer our Qs about the island. I would use services of Pepe again when in BIG Island and look forward to the day when we return and have more leisure time to spend on the island.

Upon arriving at the cruise ship we were on, I discovered I had forgot to pack one of my medications.When we were in cell phone range, I called my mail order pharmacy and they were able to order a supply of my missing meds to a CVS pharmacy in Kailua-Kona about 1.5 miles from the pier. When we got to the pier, I didn't know how we were going to get there and while I was discussing it with my wife about taking a cab or walking, Nixi from Pepe & Nixi tours came up to me and offered to take us to the pharmacy on their way to lunch. I was so grateful that they were willing to do that for us. We rode in a beautiful black van, got my prescription from the pharmacy, then we took a cab to get back to the pier and were able to continue our shopping trip on the big island. Many thanks to Pepe & Nixi as they were truly "paying it forward." When we come back to this area, I will definitely contact Pepe & Nixi about a tour.

Thanks so much for the compliment. We were more than excited to add 2 new people to our Ohana, even if just for a few minutes. We hope you enjoyed your time in Kona. Can't wait for you to return and us spending more time with both of you!!!! Mahalo

We stopped on Kona on our Hawaiian cruise. Instead of a ship planned excursion we hired our own guide. We had a great tour around Kona with Pepe & Nixi! We went to the Painted church, but didn't have enough time at the sanctuary National Park. Felt rushed out of there after we had stopped at less interesting sites. Oh well it was cheap.

We had a wonderful informative morning trip with Pepe and Nixi. We saw them at the port and decided to use them. We were also lucky that there was just one other (very nice couple) in our party. Their vehicle was new, comfortable and clean. We had a great tour of the area with Pepe driving and Nixi commentating ( but we were all really chatting like old friends). After the tour we had our photos taken and hugged and parted as new friends. I thoroughly recommend using this couple. They do lots of other tours so it is worth getting in touch. My wife and I had a great time and saw stunning scenery. Thank you both!

We wanted to see the active lava and we saw lava! Pepe&Nixi picked us up from our hotel near Kona and took us across the island to where the active lava flow is. They made sure that we had bikes to get out to where the lava was, waited for us to bike out and see the lava for as long as we wanted. We were never hurried. Then we had a ride back to our hotel. So sweet and friendly! We learned a lot about the island along the way. We really enjoyed our time!

It was a great time getting to know the two of you. Thanks also for taking our advise on using bikes to get to the lava. Our goal is for our guests not to feel rushed. Glad you felt that. Hope to see you again next time you make it to the Big Island. Aloha!!!!
