Once in a Lifetime Experience
Dave
, Jul 2021
From the start it was a great trip! Our guide, Shoyo, was informative and personabe. Before we got to the summit of Mauna Kea, we stopped at the rec center for a bathroom break and sandwiches. To say the least, the sandwiches were splendid! At the top of the mountain Shoyo provided us with interesting information about the observatories. The view was spectacular and Shoyo took fantastic pictures of us for free! Once we saw the sunset and said goodbye to the summit we headed down to stargaze. The night sky was beautiful with more stars than you could count in a lifetime. You could also see the milkyway galaxy with your naked eye and once again the wonderful guide Shoyo took breathtaking photos of our family underthe stars! The whole trip was a once in a life time experience!

This trip was incredible! Wes was our tour guide and he provided us with so much information about the history of this great land. Aki’son was a fantastic driver and a phenomenal photographer. The whole experience was so worth it. A beautiful sunset and clear sky for a night of star gazing. Highly recommend!!

One of the best things we’ve ever done! We were on this trip with our 21 year old daughter. Maximum # on the tour is nine. Shogun was a great driver, guide and photographer. Interesting stops along the way (base camp for altitude acclimation, sandwiches, gift shop, etc), massive telescopes, photo ops…very warm jackets provided, which we needed as the temp dropped to 45, and the wind picked up. Hot chocolate and green tea offered prior to stargazing. Sunset, and being at almost 14,000 ft., was amazing. The stargazing is even more amazing-more and more stars the darker it got. Shoyu’s colleague Wes used a laser pointer to show us the various constellations…so many stars. Shogun took lots of pics of us at the summit and under the stars, which he air-dropped to us before the end of the tour. Expect the tour to take about six hours, depending on where you are picked up. We loved the small group size, the photos, the whole experience…this was a highlight in a trip full of highlights!

One of the best tour that we took in Hawaii. Very prompt and courteous. Veg sandwich was really tasty and they take so many pictures of you and give it to you for free. They were only doing Japanese before pandemic and now started english also .. Would highly recommend.
