The cloud forest is a must see for any nature lover who wants to experience a new and educational experience. Norman was quick to respond to our last minute request for a guided tour and fit us in the next day. The work Norman, his family, and his team are doing to maintain, educate, and preserve this forest is phenomenal. Norman is not only contributing at the cloud forest but across hawaii. Our tour was with Voltaire. He is an expert on the cloud forest, hawaiian history, and much more. He made my aunt and my experiences so memorable and fun. I learned so much about the importance of the cloud forest, its past, present, and future, and the wonderful flora/fauna that grow in this jungle. This is such an amazing experience and am so humbled and in awe of the experience I had at the cloud forest.

This was an amazing experience. Kelly shared this unique treasure up in the clouds away from the hot beaches of the island. Kelly is so passionate about nature and has a wealth of knowledge to share. He is completely hands-on. And to top it off, he will take a ton of pictures along the way of the group and/or your party free of charge and send them to you in drop box. Amazing exotic plants you will never see anywhere else.

This tour is the real deal. Situated in the cool fresh air of the mountains, high above the heat and hustle of the coast. A hike through a world bursting with green life an beauty from ancient Ohi'a trees draped with vines, orchids, ferns, and mosses to baby giant bamboo as thick as your leg, that grows so fast you can hear it. It gave me a real understanding of the unique and fascinating plant life that still exists in Hawaii, and how precious it is. Kelly is an attentive and patient guide and has a wealth of knowledge and lore about the forest and plants that live in this special place. Kelly's love and enthusiasm for the forest is contagious. He is one of those rare people who are dedicated to supporting and preserving something beautiful and essential to all of us, and really for the whole planet. Places like this, and forests around the world are necessary to our survival and yet they are being destroyed for short term profit and greed. Come and see for your self why it is worth saving.

LikeOdysseus, Your words make all this labor of love worth everything to us here. We get up each day and we feel the urgency to get the message out about our the status of our green life. It is worth saving for our future generations. Spread the word that the forests are our medicines, food and oxygen. Safe travels as you journey around the Earth... Mahalo, Kelly Dunn #KonaCloudForest

Adrianmreviews, That's a great point you make! Sometimes it's good to what we are seeing in the forest and how it relates to us here on Earth. So many things in the forest are our medicine, food and of course oxygen. Thank you for taking a moment to post today! Mahalo, Kelly Dunn #KonaCloudForest

Great experience seeing a different side to the island. Saw lots of exotic plants. We had a friendly group of 6 + Kelly. Kelly was very knowledgeable and passionate about the forest, not to mention a very entertaining tour guide.
