Great day out with Dastan
We had a great time on this Big Island tour. Picked up at the Fairmont Orchid at 7.15 and back at 18h30 having seen monuments, waterfalls, beaches, sea turtles and lunch on the Volcano. You will learn a lot from Dastan our guide. He has really immersed himself in the Hawaiian culture and knew the history really well. I would recommend him (and I never write reviews). Great day out with teenage boys. Nice job Dastan.

Great trip for first timers to the Big Island
Jun 2021
we had a great time with Derek on this all encompassing Big Island tour. He did a great job talking about all of the sites we visited and added personal stories along the way. This is a great tour to see just about all the Big Island has to offer in a day.
Dereck was also able to help us out with a personal request that really made a difference to us.

Worth it!
Jun 2021 • Couples
Our Wasabi tour guide, Derrick, was amazing! He was so informative about the island and had a great personality. The tour was well worth the money and much better, and less tiring, than driving for 11 hours myself. Highly recommended!

This was a great way to see a lot of things in a short time. I'm not keen on spending so much time driving, but I'm glad I chose this tour. The tour guide was fab. He knew so much and kept us entertained in between stops.

Good overview of the highlights of the big island
Our guide Derek was friendly and knowledgeable. The locations we visited were interesting. Only a brief time at the black sand beach but it was very beautiful and inhabited by sea turtles. Wear comfortable shoes and be prepared for many steps.

Great easy way to see it ALL
Jun 2021
Great tour. Brian was delightful and was so impressed by his knowledge of history, lore, and just fun facts about the area. It was like having our own personal Hawaiian google. This is a really great tour to really see everything in one day. However, it is a LONG day. May not be a great tour for young children who might be "over it" after a few hours. From pick up to drop off was exactly 12 hours.

We really enjoyed it. I also recommend doing this tour at the beginning of your stay. It not only helps you get your bearings of the island, but also helps you learn some of the language and history so as you continue your vacation and see something you can go "Hey! I know about that!"

Thank you for a wonderful experience, Brian.
