No Not Use This Company
Toneka_M, Sept 2023
I will not refer or use your service again. We were suppose to get a welcome sign with our names on it when arriving along with some type of necklace to go around my neck that did not happen, and I paid extra for that. The driver was nice but The company is false advertising
Great ride
Yoly_D, Aug 2023
Connie was very friendly and knowledgeable. She was able to provide history about the island, food recommendations in our trip from airport to resort.
Left my kids stranded
Lisa_C, July 2023
My kids were traveling alone for the first time and I booked this to make sure they had reliable safe transportation. The van never showed up, or possibly left without them. There was no one to take our calls when we tried. It was late and they were left standing at the curb for almost an hour until an Uber came right as the airport was closing. Thankfully an officer came and checked on them, he also noted that this company is notorious for not showing up at the Kona Airport. I should have done my research.
Enjoyed transport to my...
Ann_T, July 2023
Enjoyed transport to my hotel with Richard. I left the islands just before he arrived, so it was fun sharing stories of our time on the Big Island.
Excellent service
Sonceria_S, July 2023
Our driver provided us with a lot of island information. She was really good. It was a wonderful rid
Great driver - but they forgot the leis.
Michele_N, July 2023
I booked this for my daughter and her husband on her honeymoon ONLY because they provided leis. The driver was great, but they forgot the leis. I immediately called them but they had no way to give them to them. Disappointing.
Best Aloha 🤙🏽 Welcome!
Robert_P, June 2023
Our driver Richard was very professional and knowledgeable about the history of the island! He made great recommendations on things to consider during our visit to get the most out of our time! He was extremely helpful!
Thank you John from Kona Taxis
Angela_N, June 2023
If it weren't for John from Kona Taxi's this service would be getting 0 star, but I gave the 5 stars for John from Kona Taxis, he was personably and understanding, I understand my plane was late in arrival but I arrived solo at the airport without a transfer, they had my flight details and should have known this detail, the operator on the phone was equally upsetting me while it was quickly getting dark waiting an hour for my transfer to the hotel where my family was. Thank you heaps once again John.
Verify your plans and have a backup plan
Ory_C, June 2023
We were on a long deserved and overdue family vacation and I had confirmation and reservation numbers for my family of seven’s transportation from the airport to to our beautiful resort hotel as well as our transportation back to the airport for out return trip home. The trip from the airport to the hotel was great. It was on time and the driver was awesome. He gave some history of the island we were on and we found him quite entertaining and informative. When it came time for our trip to end and return to the airport for our trip home, I decided to call a day ahead of time to see if I could request the same driver. I never got to ask because I was informed that there was no reservation for our return trip from the resort to the airport for our flight home. I provided my confirmation number, my reservation number and the fact I had already been charged for the return trip. I was told I would not be left stranded and that I would receive an email confirming the arrangement that I already paid. I received nothing. No email, no return call. I had the feeling my family and I were going to be left stranded. It was a roughly 30 minute trip to the airport. On the day of the trip back to the airport the shuttle never showed. Gut feeling verified. Horrible experience. I was assured my family would not be left stranded and an email would be sent confirming the arrangements I made and paid already. Nothing! No email and no call. However, an apparently more reputable shuttle service did step up and took care of my family and they got us to the airport on time and it was all done at the last minute. I will not be using Viator or SpeediShuttle services again. Trip Advisor would be well advised to reconsider some of it vendor management options when suggesting shuttles services to its customers as I was informed these particular service providers are known for this happening to others, causing major inconvenience, delays and missed flights. Those are not the memories anyone or any family should have when reflecting on and sharing their vacation moments with friends, family and loved ones. I have been to this destination a number of times and will be using the service that saved my families vacation memories on this trip from now on.
Full refund
Luciana_K, June 2023
I require full refund of my reservation. The driver never showed up to pick me up from the airport to the hotel neither from the hotel to the airport.
Friendly, helpful driver
Sonja_T, June 2023
We appreciated the friendliness of the driver and the advice we asked for and she gave. She was also very patient with us as my phone wasn't working right when we landed.
Not speedy!
Patricia_R, June 2023
Unfortunately the Speedy Shuttle was anything but speedy. After a 2 hour wait and calls to Speedy Shuttle customer service, we ultimately cancelled the shuttle and took an Uber. Kudos to Viator for promptly issuing my refund.
Great trip
Bianca_F, June 2023
Kani was our driver on both transfers. She was extremely nice and gave us a lot of great recommendations. She was very prompt and accommodating.
Not so convenient transfer
Raquel_W, May 2023
There was no instructions or signs to know where to meet your transfer. I called and was on hold for 20 minutes. I was told to go to the middle median and wait. The transfer is Speedy Shuttle and my driver arrived 20 minutes after the call ended. The saving grace was the driver Boy who was very nice, professional, and informative.
Great way to get to your hotel
Paul_W, May 2023
Just used it for transportation to a hotel. Driver was very kind, had to wait due to a delayed gate arrival for our plane.
Viator, what happened to your reknown service experiences?
Kathy_U, May 2023
What happened?? It's my first time in Hawaii so I picked a trusted travel partner, Viator, who I have used throughout the world in Lisbon, London, Spain, etc to arrange airport transfers and excursions. There were multiple issues including a Viator staff canceling all of my arrangements two days prior to my arrival (thank goodness I saved the confirmation numbers). After rebooking everything, I arrived at the airport and didn't see him waiting by the other drivers who were picking up people; there's no signage or information on where to meet the driver. Fortunately he did call me to ask where I was (after about 15 minutes) and I was taken to my hotel. My ticket included a Lei, he didn't have it and said I would be refunded. On the drive there he didn't engage in discussion. Perhaps I'm used to the conversations from my Lyft drivers now. He was gracious and helped with luggage. Not a great first impression to this beautiful state. I also learned that a colleage booked this same service and was left stranded at the airport because her flight landed late. Fun fact: my boss also booked thru this service and instead of the shared ride experience, a taxi was called instead. This is not the Viator I have trusted for years. I hope my next excursions are exponentially better. Please update details on what to expect upon arrival for future clients.
Pretty upset
natasha_c, May 2023
Shuttle stopped communicating with me and I was not picked up at the airport . Pretty unhappy and can’t seem to contact anyone
Poor communication
Todd_S, May 2023
Did not have a greater, no contact from driver when I arrived of where they are. Phone number closed. No response from driver when reached out to. Found a long way off in the dark, dark van, no lights on. Tried to drop at wrong hotel. Van was very nice, driver was polite, very affordable. Would recommend if they simply communicated where to be picked up at.
Friendly service
carolyn_G, May 2023
Lovely friendly driver. Just had a couple of minutes to wait and she was there. Nice start to our trip
Bad experience
Tera_M, Apr 2023
Upon arrival the driver did not greet us with Leis as I paid for but instead gave it to the other couple on boars. Instead of making it right he argued me down that we didnt request leis although it was on my voucher I also presented as proof. I called the 3rd party I went thru Speedy Shuttle and they showed my reservation to include leis so not sure where the miscommunication was. Then they dropped us off at the wrong hotel entrance so we had to then wait and catch another shuttle. Just an overall bad experience for the price we paid. We actually could have Ubered to the hotel.
