What people are saying about Hilo
We saw the Kona coffee museum & shop, many scenic bays & waterfalls, ate lunch at the beautiful Volcano House, walked through tropical regrowth post-eruption, viewed the volcano from different vantage points, drove through a rain forest, visited the macadamia nut shop, a candy factory, saw Parker Ranch, Hilo, & many towns on the coast & inland. Lots of opportunities to buy gifts & souvenirs. I gained a greater appreciation of the Big island & all it has to offer! Great tour, thanks to Tommy, our guide!
Our driver was wonderful, professional and knowledgeable. The route was good. I would have liked fewer stops that were just for shopping. An actual tour at the coffee stop would be preferred to what was given. My main disappointment was lunch. The service was fair, the food not satisfactory. A nicer place that cost a bit more would have been preferred. My praise for the driver includes his great ability to have people stay on schedule.
Perfect tour for families or the more elderly traveler. You get to see all of the island without having to drive yourself or walk/hike too much. This tour takes you around the entire island with many stops along the way at scenic points and shopping spots. Sight seeing around the Big Island is gorgeous and massive!!
Rich is very outgoing and experienced. His knowledge and enthusiasm were boundless. The clouds did clear and there were more than 6,500 stars on display. The other earlier stops were interesting particularly the lave tube hope for me.
