The trip to Waipio Valley exceeded my expecrtations! Beautiful flowers, historical details, ecology and geology details. Restroom stops abundant. Akaka Falls beautiful in the light rain. Bring your own rain jacket because the one provided made me sweat! Rainbow Falls from the non-public side was beautiful too!

An amazing trip with Nathaniel, once at Waipio Valley we were met by Douglas, who offered not only a vast amount of history for his home down in the valley, but humor as well. Mahalo!!

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the wonders of Hawaii through the knowledgeable and capable narration of our guide Keith from Wasabi Tours! From a farm to waterfalls to the wonders of the beautiful valley we visited, the tour was very inclusive and was the highlight of our vacation!

Our guide Drew as fantastic. His knowledge of the island, water falls, flora and fauna was extensive and he was willing to share. His sense of humour kept us alert. The water falls were beautiful even though the weather was a bit drizzly. The Waipio was also fantastic and we learned a lot while we went through rivers and streams seeing the beauty of it. A must for everyone

Great tour. We not only saw dozens of waterfalls and got to swim in one, we also stopped at a fruit farm where we saw and sampled many different fruits and spices. We also took an adventurous trip down into Waipio Valley that was was absolutely beautiful. This trip really offers a wide variety of activities and takes you deep into many different parts of the Big Island.

Great guide, beautiful visit, and thoroughly enjoyed the OK Farm. The Waipio Valley was a thrilling ride. You could pretend to be riding in a all-terrain vehicle in Jurassic Park

Wonderful tour of the Big Island. Our tour guide Kala was very professional and as a native knew the history and culture of Hawaii. Kala knew the island like it was his backyard. He accommodated all passengers according to their needs. We had about 12 in our group. My wife could not walk well do to recent knee issue, but that was not a problem. We viewed 4 of the major falls and went in many neat areas that were private and not open to most tours. If you want to know the real Hawaii and enjoy it better, take this tour and ask for Kala Holiday. The tour company that Viator used was Wasabi Int.

Great tour. If you're looking to compliment a volcano tour or just something different this is a great choice.

Pace was good, tour guide was involved, small bus, etc...

You'll definantly want to book this or another tour that actually goes down in to Waipio valley not just the viewing spot. Note the waipio valley part is in a seperate van from the rest of the day and with a local guide ours grew up in the valley. Note that the ride down/up isn't the only attraction, the road in the valley has several water crossings. The valley trip can be quite bumpy so just a warning.

The private waterfall was ok, however akaka is more impressive. no one in our group opted to go swimming but was a good stop anyway.

The stop at OK farms was as unexpected highlight, it is a farm that happens to give tours not a tourist trap. We had a tour of parts of it from one of the employees which was really great, got to see the mandatory macadamia trees however the spice trees were an unexpected suprise. I think everyone in our group enjoyed this stop so much so that our guide needed to get us going as we were spending more time than expected there.

Also of note the lunch provided by this operator was excellent, it's the best of any tour company I've ever seen.

What an amazing adventure! Jonathan our guide was wonderful- friendly, knowledgeable and all around great! His stories of the island and historical knowledge really helped to understand what we were seeing and allowed the group to see the island through the eyes of how it used to be: Top notch, I highly recommend taking this tour!

This was not just a sightseeing tour, it was a journey into the heart of the Hawaiian people. Our guide, Kolaa, please forgive if I misspelled was young and at first impression far too practiced. But as we traversed the primal Hawaiian landscape, he unveiled with unexpected wisdom, and a depth of passion only found when one is connected to the land as he is, secrets of the Hawaiian culture and heritage. We truly had no expectations other than to see a few island landscapes not ventured on previous trips, but this was an adventure extraordinaire with this interesting savant as our interpreter. Do not expect to be taken on drive-bys of purged and plumaged tourista attractions. Instead, try to empathize with a history of cultural and ecological interference and dominance, all related without malice but rather as historical fact. Not only were we enlightened to these waves of ways in which the Islands have changed, but we were treated to the stories, the myths, and the rich heritage of the Hawaiian culture. He also treated us to demonstrations of useful and medicinal plants and explained how, with careful planning, one could live completely self-sufficiently on this beautiful, mysterious and volatile rock. I could see how our young guide lived the Hawaiian way his reference to his family was always so tender and sincere. I would especially recommend our guide and this adventure to those who have an interest in anything ecologically related to the Islands. He has a depth of knowledge that you will find challenging and insightful.
