My family had a fantastic time on the tour! It was so great to see all the big sights in one day. It was a good pace of each stop. Greg was our guide and he was very knowledgeable, kind, and accommodating to all the guests. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone!

The bus was on time, Mike, our driver and commentator was informative and funny. We stopped extra places, but missed stopping at the Punalu'u Bake shop! We were a bit surprised by the small size of the lunch at Volcanoes Restaurant. Again, we had thought it was a full circle tour but ended up going from Hilo across the island via the Saddle Road. It was good to not have to be the driver in the dark, and appreciate being able to rely on Mike's capable driving. Our big objection was the steep bus steps!!

“Cousin Greg” was an excellent tour guide. Knowledgeable, funny and very approachable. The motor coach was very nice and the logistics were handled very well. It was pretty fast moving, which was perfect for us- no more than 30-40 minutes at each stop. If you are someone who really wants to spend a lot of time at each place this is probably not for you, but if you like something that keeps things moving, it is the perfect way to see a bunch of the island in one day.

While the places covered were very good mostly the guide was rubbish. For a start he did not introduce himself and at no point did he tell us his name. He spent far too much time talking about himself and his house and family and not enough detail about the island and the places we visited. the return journey over Saddle Road took place after dark and he completely ruined it by playing a very boring video about cowboys. Not everyone likes watching TV I would have preferred to read but there were no lights inside the coach.
