    Chris, our tour guide, did a FANTASTIC job from start to finish. And it was a VERY long day. He definitely didn't slow down or cut things short because of the long day. We experienced so much and Chris's expertise made a HUGE difference. He gave us personal advice on food to try--the type of malasadas (amazing!) and the spots to hit at each of our stops. I would definitely recommend the Big Island in a Day--Waterfalls, Volcanos, etc. tour. Black sand beach with the resting sea turtles was really cool. Both waterfall stops were just as amazing. This is definitely a tour if you are short on time and want to see a ton. But you are in a van all day. It was comfortable and Chris made sure we had all that we needed. GREAT adventure!

    Our tour guide made the trip. I forget her name but she is a student and her wealth of knowledge made everything all the more interesting. She was kind, professional and an excellent driver. Our smaller group van allowed us to have an extra stop and I appreciated her flexibility. The stops were exactly as advertised. Loved the black sand beach, waterfall and VNP. The van was comfortable, sometimes almost too cold because you can't please everyone. We were on a cruise and would highly recommend this company.

    We fly on Blue Hawaiian out of Waikola on the Big Island Spectacular tour. The tour was amazing yet pricey; however we felt it was worth the cost. Any tour is going to be an investment and if you are going to do it might as well go "all in".

    The tour is divided in 2 parts. The 1st part flies you around the volcanoes. Note - on most days wind, clouds, smoke may prevent you from seeing all the volcanoes. The day of our tour it was too smoky to fly over Kilauea which is OK as safety 1st!

    After flying over the volcanoes, which is amazing, you will be taken back to home base for refueling. Pro Tip - during refueling you get off the helicopter so good time for a bathroom break or to get a snack.

    The 2nd part of the Big Island Spectacular takes you to the East and North side of the Big Island. You will see green valleys, waterfalls and the coast. The highlight of the trip is when they land you in a (very) small grassy area at the base of a waterfall. Words cannot describe how amazing this is to experience. You get 20 minutes or so to walk around take pictures, etc.

    Bonus on our trip - there were LOTS of humpback whales. Our pilot fly us over the water and tipped the helicopter left and right so everyone could see the whales. We saw Mama whales and their babies playing in the water; must have seen at least a dozen whales. It was incredible!

    Pro Tips - Blue Hawaiian asks you to show up 1 hour before departure and respect the time it tales to get you ready to fly. Do not inconvenience your fellow passengers by being late. Flights are weight balanced; they weigh you when you get there (don't worry no one sees the weigh in); respect the fact in order to be safe, based on weight, you are placed in certain seats in the helicopter. Do not argue with the staff on where they want you to sit as safety 1st!! The staff does their best to keep groups together.

    3 seats in front with the pilot front left and 2 passengers. 4 seats in the back, 2 outside, 2 inside. The "inside seats" have great views so don't worry.

    The Blue Hawaiian staff & pilots at Waikoloa are fantastic! Janie (sp) was super accommodating and helpful. Our pilot was Kai and he was cool as could be making our flight smooth and safe. As mentioned, Blue Hawaiian's #1 priority s safety; they won't fly if they think it's not safe (which is great).

    Worth mentioning 1 more time; flying on a helicopter is a big investment. If you can afford it, step up for the Big Island Spectacular, it's worth the cost.

    Arrived for our scheduled flight time only to be advised that fowl weather was moving into the area. We were given the option of rescheduling, receiving a full refund or flying at our scheduled departure time but not being able to see the active volcano. We elected to take our flight and had a wonderful time with our pilot (Wesley).

    We were on the Big Island for 10 days and while we had many great experiences, the highlight of our trip was our Volcano tour with Erik of Kilauea EcoGuides. Erik is both informative and personable. Born in Hawaii and trained as a volcanologist, Erik gave us a great overview of the park and the underlying forces. He also answered all of our questions about the volcanoes, Hawaiian flora and fauna and what it's like to live in Hawaii. We couldn't have asked for a better experience.

    We did this activity with our 3 teenagers so if was us and just one other person so it felt like a custom excursion. The crew were great, Cory and Eli. The water time was 30 minutes and we saw a few mantas. We did the sunset tour. They pointed out some whales on the way out and at the dock we saw a shark and a turtle, so it was a pretty good trip 😊

    This tour was one of the most memorable tours my wife and I have ever taken. Aside from being extremely knowledgeable in everything Hawaii, our tour guide Derek Stuart was very engaging and kept all of the tour participants entertained and informed throughout the entire tour. My wife and I would highly recommend the Twilight Volcano and Stargazing tour to anyone, and we would specifically recommend Derek as your tour guide.

    We took the Big Island Highlights tour yesterday with Debra. This tour was really great. The van was comfy. The snacks and water were appreciated. And we were very thankful that Debra had extra jackets when it started to drizzle. Best of all was Debra's extensive knowledge. She knew so many things along the way and at each destination. We never would have seen all these things and learned all the history and trivia if we hadn't taken this tour. Plus it was sooo nice to let someone else do the driving!

    The tour started on time from the cruise port. Josh was an excellent tour guide and driver, easy to understand, very informative and entertaining. The vehicle was clean and spacious for a small group of 12. We saw and learned about everything as listed, plus a short stop at Big Island Candy. We would recommend it all.

    My partner and I booked this experience prior to visiting the park for the first time. Also first-time e-bikers, we were nervous but then overcame our fears due to the gentle introduction and safety tips provided by our guide, Kaylon.
    Views and stops were a great way to see what's available and to our next visit to the park.
    Mahalo!

    The tour was great. Jill was an excellent host - enthusiastic, knowledgeable and attentive to the needs of the group. We had a time schedule, but she was flexible as needed. The time of the trip being 5.5hrs versus some of the other tours, was a perfect amount of time, and it didn't feel rushed. Transportation was comfortable. Great time all around.

    Great tour. Grant was our guide. Felt like we were traveling with an old friend. He was very knowledgeable, friendly and entertaining. He pointed out a LOT of cool stuff on the trip, and had great stories to tell. The van was very comfortable. Stopping points were well timed/spaced. Had a nice boxed lunch at the coffee plantation (along with a ton of coffee sampling), fruit at the farmers market (which also had other cool booths like t-shirts, artists, etc), malasadas at the bakery, dinner at the lodge was also good. Unfortunately, no lava was flowing, and it was raining/foggy at the caldera. No worries though; could still see the caldera, crater and steam vents. Amazing view. Overall, a great tour. Highly recommend this trip.
