    Guide was very good - a very enjoyable experience especially the waterfalls. could have missed out the coffee planta5tion, and other agricultural sites as they were boring,.

    The guide (Dreu) was excellent, he looked after all of others, was knowledgeble, informative and entertaining.
    We have a brilliant time and several people swam and paddled floats in the private waterfall. The scenery is amazing, and this tour is a must for anyone visiting Hawai'i.

    This tour offered so much more than we expected! On our honeymoon, my wife and I sought an experience that wouldn't just show us the island from a bus window, but let us interact with its wonders. This excursion delivered. Our friendly guide, Dreu, picked us up from our hotel promptly, and for over 10 hours taught our small group about life on the island. Even during the longer stretches of driving there was never a dull moment with Dreu. We tasted a variety of spices on a farm, enjoyed fresh lychee, cracked our own macadamia nuts, sampled local coffee, and, of course, visited several waterfalls, and even swam in one (and jumped off the rock just like the photo!). They provided paddle boards, which we had a blast on. Waipio Valley was simply stunning, from afar, and through an intimate drive through the lush neighborhoods at its base.
    Excellent tour!

    I really enjoyed this tour. We got lots of background on the volcanoes themselves, the climate, history, etc. Our guides were very informative and we definitely learned alot. I liked the Waipio Valley and all of the waterfalls the best. You even get to swim in a private waterfall. I also got to try and purchase macadamia nut honey for the 1st time. I highly recommend this tour, you'll get some great experiences and some beautiful pictures.

    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!
