Big Island Tours

Big Island Tours reveal the real Hawaii

How Our Big Island Tours are Different From the Rest…

The Big Island is a place like no other on the planet. It’s different, and so are we!

We want to bring you to the island’s special places on our Big Island tours, so you can experience for yourself the many facets of this amazing land. You’ll come away with a deeper understanding and appreciation of the Big Island’s culture, history and natural beauty.

Nature is our focus. Our itineraries are designed to let you explore, and learn about the island’s unique geology, culture, history and living ecosystems. Rather than shopping, or visiting other tourist-oriented venues, we’ll take you to places where you’ll come face to face with Hawai’i’s raw, natural beauty. And we’ll spend a little time letting you get to know each place, rather than just making a quick stop and rushing on to the next, like so many other tours.

Our tour groups are a lot smaller than most companies’, with a maximum of 12 guests or less, in our air conditioned 15-passenger vans. We think that makes for a better, more intimate experience for everyone.

All of our Big Island tours are exciting, informative and, most important, lots of fun. We offer tours for every interest, age and ability.

Our experienced guides are well versed in natural and cultural history, and will bring you to truly special places where you will encounter unique native plants and animals.

Your comfort and safety are our top priorities. We provide rain gear, and other basic items you may need or may have forgotten. Our guides are certified in First Aid and CPR by the American Red Cross. We always carry a well-supplied first aid kit so you don’t have to worry.

We provide healthy snacks and some tours include a delicious picnic meal, with a choice of deluxe sandwich and beverages from a menu filled with fresh, locally grown and organic choices. We are always happy to accommodate special requests with advance notice.

Your questions are always welcome, so please don’t hesitate to contact us!.
