    This was literally the best tour I've ever been on!

    First, Katie picked us up from our hotel in Waikoloa Beach, and our first stop was within minutes of picking us up. The whole day was full of so many amazing stops, along with stories and history of the island, and it was so worth every penny we paid.

    Seriously, if you are visiting the big island, carve out a day for this. You will not be disappointed!!!

    P.S. Katie was the BOMB DIGGITY!
