Mauna Kea Summit Tour was one of the highlights of our vacation to The Big Island!

We were in great hands with Stephan as our tour guide! Yes, you can by all means drive yourself up to Mauna Kea in your 4x4. You won't be toured around by a local and will be missing all the great information about this beautiful sacred ground. Stephan was an awesome guide, he tagged teamed it with Sean during the star gazing and constellation talk. We were able to see Venus, Saturn and Jupiter in their telescope. It was so amazing. BOOK THIS TOUR. I didn't even eat since I was so excited to be up there. I chose to have some hot green tea during the star gazing. Hot chocolate was the other option. We loved getting the digital photos airdropped to us right away taken of us by Stephan. We wouldn't have been able to capture The Milky Way with our iPhone cameras. Haha. I'd highly recommend this tour by Hawaiian Eyes Tour Company. We had an amazing time!

Like being on top of the world without the effort of self-propelling up a mountainside. Beautiful views; guide Hiro was the best with great commentary and above average knowledge of the heavens. His star presentation was very interesting and his love for astronomy was evident and catching! Great tour, appreciated the warm coats and other gear provided. The pictures included to capture the memory with something other than a cell phone snapshot are great. Great tour and worth every cent!

I took my mother on this tour. Both he and I had a lovely time admiring the sunset, stars, and learning a bit about the Hawaiian culture. It was cold, so I suggest planning accordingly. Our tour guide Stephan was very kind, knowledgeable, and fun.

This is a must do! Our tour guide Shawn was a superstar and we had such a good time! Mauna Kea is incredible beautiful and we watched the sun set into the clouds. We were provided with hot chocolate and egg sandwiches to stay warm along with ski jackets and pants. Shawn was knowledgeable about the stars and the timing and Mauna Kea has to be one of the greatest places in the world for stargazing. Can't recommend this tour enough!

Our tour to Mauna Kea summit with tour guides Wesley & Aoki was the highlight of our trip. They took good care of us making sure we were safe at all times. The photo’s were beyond amazing and the hot chocolate served during the star gazing was a nice surprise. Again thank you so much to Wes & Aoki for an amazing experience. Would recommend these 2 & would definitely do this trip again. “Ohio”
