Our tour guide, Alex, was excellent, & the coach was comfortable with plenty of room between guest groups. Highlights were the sea turtles on the beach, the volcano & the lava tubes! I would have preferred less stops (the coffee farm wasn’t interesting, but breakfast was good, likewise with the winery and lunch), and more chance to explore the national park.

Big Island Circle Tour for the win!

Our guide, Mike, was great. He has great knowledge of the island and is awesome at time management. This meant less waiting in line at the bakery and more time with the turtles at the black sand beach. All stops were great. . Our favorite part was Volcanoes National Park with the stop at Kilauea and the lava tube. The only suggestion I have is to have a short presentation on how the coffee is farmed at Kona Joes. All in all it is well worth the money and time.

5 stars for Big Island Circle Tour w/ JB and Maryann!

What I liked about this tour is being able to go/do/see almost everything we wanted in one day… and then make decisions on which specific places we would want to go for a longer period of time later in the vacation. The itinerary is excellent and depending on traffic or holiday celebrations (if roads were possibly closed), our guides were flexible and would make adjustments… or if we had extra time, we would add a stop — to do some shopping or to get shave ice. We were in a clean, comfortable and roomy tour bus seating 12 (14 including the two guides) with large windows all around to take in the view… and for me, it helped as I tend to get car sick, especially on the windy roads. JB and Maryann had a lot of facts and stories to share during the drives in between stops, and did trivia to keep it interactive. We also felt like we were eating and drinking throughout the day. They had a lot of ice cold water, soda, and juice available throughout the day, snacks, and both the breakfast and the lunch were delicious… and this is just what the tour offered. This didn’t include the malasadas and shave ice and coffee/wine/tea tasting we had when we stopped at the various locations. It was an 11 hour tour, which would be taxing for any kid… but our kids (ages 14, 12, 11, and 9) actually had a really good time seeing all the sites, and (surprisingly) didn’t complain at all throughout the day. JB and Maryann were so awesome, that when we realized we left some purchases in the back of their van, they contacted us right away and Maryann brought us our stuff that evening, where we invited her to end the day with us, talking stories, with some dinner and cocktails at Kuleana Rum Shack. We will definitely check out other tours with Kailani Tours!

Our guide, Grant was fantastic, a wealth of knowledge and entertaining too. Our driver Kate, was in training and she was an excellent driver and will make a terrific guide. She is a local and knows all about the island. This is the perfect introduction to the Big Island, now we know where to go next week to show our family around. You won't know what you are seeing unless you have a guide

Great tour - just what we needed to see the Big Island in a day1

To start off, Thia our tour guide was absolutely amazing. She picked us up promptly in a comfy Mercedes sprinter van and asked our names to get started. During the next few pick ups, she pointed out several areas of interest. At our first stop, Greenwich Coffee Farms, she set up a breakfast of croissant and yogurt/fruit parfait. Her presentation was beautiful and she offered us additional beverages. Out next stop was the bakery and Thia had preordered Masaladas for us since this was a quick stop. They were amazing! Next stop was the black beach and after viewing the sea turtle, Thia had cool wash cloths ready for us to clean up after walking on the beach - such a nice touch! The Volcano Winery was our next stop and Thia set up lunch while we were waiting - another great presentation and delicious lunch. Before entering the van, she had warm wash cloths for us to use. At Volcano National park, Thia had umbrellas and jackets if we needed them. She offered us flight lights to use when walking through the lava tubes (my favorite part of the tour) Our final stop was Rainbow Falls on the Hilo side of the island. I can't state enough how much we enjoyed this tour. If you are on fence - BOOK the trip. You will not be disappointed... especially if Thia is your tour guide!

The volcano is amazing to see, much grander in size than I could ever have imagined. I loved the black sand beach. The food was great all day on the tour. The best part of the day was Thea's stories, on and off the bus. I love hearing about the history of HAWAII

The tour was a full day , but was a great day. Our tour guide Jim knew his stuff and interacted with our 11yr old as much as the adults. Kept him off his phone for the entire day which says something. Jim was also beyond knowledgeable.
