The most amazing thing we have seen our guide Heraldo was extremely knowledgeable. We had a welcoming dinner so we could get to know each other and acclimatise at 9,000 feet. The tour was respectful and considerate of the environment at all times. It did require some effort to breathe at 14,000 feet but Heraldo provided excellent guidance and practical advice. We would highly recommend this trip.
I'm so glad that we did this trip! From the minute we met our tour guide, we were shown incredible hospitality and a truly wonderful tour throughout the big island and to the summit of Mauna Kea. Every part of the tour was very well executed - dinner was delicious, parkas were provided to ensure guests were warm enough, and hot chocolate and brownies was the perfect way to treat the guests! Not to mention the views were truly incredible and something I will always remember - the sunset was picture perfect and the star gazing was unbelievable, all with a telescope that allowed us to see the moon, Saturn and Jupiter. As the title states, from start to finish, it was perfect.
I know you have the sun, beach and surf. But this excursion will have you saying WOW. A nice trip up Mauna Kea, a dinner at 3000 feet, sunset viewing and then a look at the planets and stars. have you ever seen the rings of Saturn and the bands Jupiter? A beautiful night sky. Ranks as one of the BEST
We had a group of 6 adults on the tour and everyone had a wonderful time. Jeff (our tour guide) had fantastic knowledge of the Mauna Kea area as well as the island overall. Watching the clouds rolling through at sunset was magical and then heading down to another spot to stargaze was incredible. We saw more stars than we've ever seen in our lives, and we also got to see the glow of the Kilauea eruption in the distance. Jeff focused in on the lava flows with the telescope and it was so awesome. We also got to view the moon, Jupiter, Saturn and lots more through the telescope. We will never forget the experience, so thank you Jeff for doing such a great job in guiding us! I highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting the Big Island.
