My 2 friends and I did this tour our last day of the trip and it was a great way to end a wonderful vacation. Our tour guide Derek arrived on time in an air conditioned, clean and comfortable vehicle. He was extremely helpful, sharing knowledge and history of the island that he's learned as a guide and also as a resident for many years. He was always sure to communicate the flow of the day or activity we were about to do, what to expect with the terrain and accompanied us on certain walls to point out things we would have otherwise missed. A great guide, adored by many vendors and locals on the tour route. We stayed on the right side of the island and it was great to have someone experienced get us and show us through the southern area and let side of the island. Great trip, would highly recommend.
Great transportation; enjoyed the short walk thro the lava tube at Kona coffee,other than that the stop was so so; the stop at the heritage village of the early ancestors was really informative and gave us a look at how they lived back then and their customs& beliefs; a side stop at the donut shop was very good, not only the donuts , but the variety of food for lunch; then off to the black sand beach, which was awesome with many green turtles up on the beach; Volcano National park was awesome and we could have spent many hours there. Then to Hilo and Rainbow Falls
Very detailed tour of The Big Island. Guide was very flexible in what we saw and what options we had in doing so. Helped us get the most out of our tour. If information is what you're looking for, Awana is your guide.
Crystal was excellent. I learned so much and enjoyed it immensely. Starting in Hilo then onto the volcano with a telescope and astronomer was really special Thanks
Great full island tour, even though most of it was raining. Brian, our guide, knew EVERYTHING about the island and it’s history.
