Our guide Aaron was amazing! He had an incredible amount of knowledge about all of our site visits, Hawaiian culture, and especially our star gazing experience. I can't say enough great things about our trip. A must for anyone looking for a memorable experience!

Tour guide Jaqueline was 5star awesome and very energetic and knowledgeable throughout our tour. The actual tour was way too long….probably 4-5 hours too long. Far too many points of interest were pointed out but passed right by as we didn’t get out to see them.

Amazing lava glow and star gazing tour!

We had the most amazing tour with Jaclyn! She taught us so much about the Big Island, the Hawaiian language and culture, as well as the importance of conservation. She kept the energy up on the long rides and made the experience so much better than if we had tried to do this on our own. We got to see Sea Turtles at the black sand beach, the incredible lava glow, and a starry sky like we have never seen before. We had our 8 year old and 13 year old and they both ranked the tour at the top of their “favorite things we did on the Big Island.”

Our guide Dreu was amazing. We loved every stop. The coffee farm, the bakery, the black sand beach, the National Volcano Park, and the last-minute post-rain stargazing in Waikoloa. A wonderful day our family will not forget.

The whole tour was awesome. Our tour guide Aaron was very knowledgeable and pleasant. The highlight was the volcano. Meals provided are very good. Overall, it's definitely a worthwhile tour, but long. Take a jacket as it does get cooler at twilight.

Aaron was an amazing tour I will warn though it is a 13 hour tour but time flies by and it is sooo worth it. I've never seen stars so clearly and seeing the volcano at night was an amazing experience I'll never forget

Our group of six (three couples) was last to be picked up for this all day tour. Our guide Dreu was welcoming and patient and after getting us settled in the comfy van off we went. He had great information to share about our sites, Hawaiian culture, history, and more. Open to questions and responsive to requests such as for heat as it started getting cooler. Not surprisingly, we encountered some rain but nothing too bad. Dreu was helpful about sharing info about the timing and conditions between stops, including bathroom facilities and other logistics. Didn't feel rushed but we also didn't have much time to linger. We got very lucky to see two honu (green sea turtles) at Punulo'o Black Sand Beach, eruption at Kiluea Summit Caldera (second visit, this after dinner so it was dark), and plenty of stars! Dreu made the trip accessible and fun and we would highly recommend this trip.

An evening on the Big Island

Our family of 5 thoroughly enjoyed this 12 hr tour with our tour guide Dreu. He is the best! He showed us incredible sights. He was very knowledgeable in Hawaiian culture and history. We really enjoyed his sense of humor and story telling. He kept us very entertained throughout the long drive to the black sand beach and Volcanoes National Park. This tour is a must from the coffee farm, the bakery, the black sand beach, volcanoes national park and the star gazing! We were blessed to see sea turtles, a lava flow at night and the brilliant stars in the sky! The food was pretty good too!

We had a great time with Aaron - he was knowledgeable, entertaining and patient with our group. The transport was comfortable with air-conditioning and it was great to relax as we travelled between stops. Aaron provided an abundance of interesting facts about Hawaii, the Big Island, volcanoes, stars throughout and we were never bored. We enjoyed all the stops even though the weather wasn't cooperating with us, we managed to get the most of it and couldn't imagine doing all of it without a guide. Each stop was great but we particularly liked the stargazing activity, which was amazing! The food and drinks provided on the trip was decent and we never felt hungry throughout. The pace was very relaxing, we didn't feel rushed at all. We felt like we were very much taken care of from beginning to end. I would totally recommend!

May Not See Stars - Would go for the Lava Lake after dark.
Charles_M
, May 2022
Prolly the most memorable was the visit to the tube, and volcano to see the glow and the lava lake after dark. I would definitely recommend bringing like an IPhone 13 Pro that can do time lapse to capture, as most cameras will not capture it. The guide was very very knowledgeable and a very good driver. This is a long day. My only gripe is that if you go, call ahead and say you are disabled to reserve better seats. We were a party of 3, and I never in my life rode with a group of more self centered people who only thought about their own comfort. I had the worst seat on the bus, on the rear wheel well for 12 hours. I’m no spring chicken - 57. A young couple in their 20s / 30s on the bus literally RAN to get a table of three (they were only 2) at the Volano House dinner table when they were able to 1) sit together for 12 hours on a bus. (Not on the rear wheel well). I know you can’t pick the people you ride with, but, I think the driver could have done a better job of trying to ensure everyone gets a comfortable seat. Or cycle the front seat next to the driver. Or get a bigger bus, and only partially fill it so everyone with large groups can be accommodated. My limited interaction was to ask for the rear door to stay open as I was dead in the back, we were parked, waiting for others to get on the bus. I had to insist the door remain open so some air could circulate. That part of the experience didn’t want me to tip, but, we did just because of the long drive where the driver excelled and their excellent grasp of Hawaiian lore. I would recommend as I don’t think you could rent a car and do this all in one day yourself. Again, call ahead and reserve your seats as you may have the bad luck of being with folks who have no team spirit.

Twilight Volcano and Stargazing Tour

Aaron was a very knowledgeable, considerate and wonderful tour guide to spend the day with touring the island. We enjoyed all the stops and information that we learned about regarding Hawaiian culture and how island history. Highly recommend this tour. It was long, about 13 hours in all- but we saw a lot of the island and it takes a while to drive from stop to stop. Prepare to dedicate an entire day to this adventure- well worth it!

Memorable Excursion

Our day started with an on time pick-up at our hotel and ended almost 13 hrs later with a drop-off in the same spot. What transpired during this time was a totally enjoyable, informative & entertaining excursion led by Dreu. His passion & knowledge was truly apparent in his narrative, story & legend telling, and tips he provided. We never felt rushed and appreciated the numerous restroom stops and Dreu’s attention to details. The van was comfortable and the USB port & cup holders were convenient. The weather was almost perfect with only light drizzle in Volcanoes National Park but after dinner the view of the “glow” & star gazing was clear & amazing, wow! The provided lunch, snacks & drinks, and dinner were all good. Tips: bring long pants & jacket for the evening; a small flashlight for walk through the lava tube; and if you don’t pack a jacket, one can be provided. The best part of a this truly memorable experience was we didn’t have to plan the itinerary or drive! Mahalo Dreu!
