Amazing! Not much more to add. Lincoln, our guide was superb and so knowledgeable about anything we asked. Clearly a very proud man of his Hawaii roots. Very comfortable bus with small group. Views we immense and timing of everywhere we went couldn't have been any better. Arrived at the volcano and had a fab view then 20 mins later the mist covered everything. Would definitely recommend anybody who does Hawaii must pay the extra and visit the Big Island to do this trip. Long day but well worth it.
Wish the description would have been more specific. Did 260 miles on a bus. Waited almost an hour from when we arrived in Hawaii to when our tour started. Was disappointed that we did not visit Kona Coffee which was to be part of the tour. Asked why and was told that we would have had to cut each stop by 10 minutes. Could have done without the Big Island Chocolate factory immediately after lunch. Did see the volcano and active lava. All in all it was an OK trip. Long but OK.
The tour was really great and gives you a good first overview. There is enough time for pictures and to experience the view. Since the tour is only a 1-day trip, there is unfortunately not enough time to explore places in detail and I was a bit disappointed that there is only a limited view on the volcano. The pick-up and organization was really organized and it was a pleasure to be on this trip. To sum up, if you are limited in time, I can only recommend this tour.
On the 21st of September my daughter Aleasha and i flew from Honolulu to Kona Airport where we were greeted by a elderly gentleman explaining that we had to wait for the bus which suited us fine toilet break : Once picked up we did the Big Island tour , where we were lucky enough to see some lava bubbling in the crater , walk thru a lava tube , see some turtles on the black sand and saw some amazing old trees with a waterfall, with stops along the way to eat and gift shops .
Thru out it all Luke was an amazing guide and kept us entertained thru out the whole day with his storys and local knowledge , was sorry to have the day come to an end .
If your ever over in Perth West Aust Luke look me up on facebook , i'll be the 1 with the cars on her profile pic and i'll take you for a cruise next time
