I went to places that I would probably not visited on my own. Loved the sunken garden/lava tube at Volcanies NP!

Everything was amazing. Todd was great and went above and beyond to help us have the best day possible. He was very knowledgeable about everything and shared so much valuable information with us. I am glad we were able to have such an excellent tour guide.
It was great but a bit...

Wonderful Big Island Tour
Paula_S, Sep 2023
Henry's informative guiding, humour and obvious enthusiasm for his subject. The trip was well paced with great variety and as guests we were well taken care of. One of the best day tours I've ever done.
Love it
Rachel_W, Sep 2023
We had an amazing time in the tour! The tour guide had a wealth of knowledge and we learned a lot. He was very accommodating. Each site there was a bathroom and snacks. The dinner was great! He takes you to places that you would not think to go outside of a tour. Numerous beautiful sites. Tour sizes are small too. The money was definitely worth the tour.
Full day on Big Island volcanoes

Excellent day trip. Long but worth it as covers a lot of the island in one day Aaron was an very knowledgeable pleasant tour guide. Great to be in a small group. All food and drinks supplied all day as well as extra clothing for the night time star gazing as it got cold !
Impressive day and night

Wasabi tours was an excellent experience for a first time Hawaii Big Island visitor. Our tour guide Aaron was a consummate professional with a wealth of knowledge of not only the Big Island, but of all Hawaii and the culture. Kept us entertained and informed throughout the tour and was very kind and patient. Highly recommend to those who want to learn all the Big Island has to offer thank you Wasabi tours and a special thank you to Aaron.
Long Day

This was a very long but enjoyable tour our Tour Guide Dreu was great just be prepared to spend an entire day. We got lucky little to no rain on our trip we just missed the new lava
Allan_T, Sep 2023
Scott was an amazing guide, knowledgeable and friendly and funny. We learned a lot and had a ton of fun. Great value for the price, the volcano is a must see. So far, this has been the highlight of our honeymoon.
Awesome experience.

Thank you Aaron for being a great guide! We had a lovely group as well! It was a small 12 people group and we were accompanied by two other groups/vans of the same size, each with their own guide. We were all extremely lucky because Kilauea had erupted just two days before and we were offered a magnificent view both during the day and at nighttime. Aaron also brought binoculars so we were all able to have an even better view! The other activities were great too and we really got a comprehensive tour of the island, Aaron was very knowledgeable and taught us a lot from history and geology to astronomy and the traditional Hawaiian culture. One very minor thing, I was expecting to see more of Kealakekua bay but we were quite far away actually. We did get to see sea turtles at Punalu’u though! The food provided was very good too (bento box and restaurant)! I think we all had an amazing experience overall!
An absolute MUST DO
Kayla_M, Sep 2023
This excursion truly made my entire trip on the big island. Todd was my tour guide and I don’t think I would have had the same experience had I’d been in another group. He was so polite, patient and attentive to the entire group, and probably one of the most knowledgeable people I have ever met. I mainly joined this tour for the stargazing, which is now hands down one of the most memorable experiences of my life, but everything else we did was so much fun and was one of the best ways to see these main hotspots on the island. I’d say the amount of time we had at each spot was more than enough, however I could have stayed out the entire night looking at the sky, it was just unreal. The food provided was really good - lunch at the coffee farm was nice to have at the beginning of the day and dinner at the restaurant after the volcano park was a great pitstop before going out and stargazing. I especially appreciated having Todd as our tour guide because it got pretty cloudy after about 15 minutes of stargazing, so we unfortunately had to leave early. However on the drive home, Todd pulled over to check the conditions outside and it was crystal clear where we were. So he allowed us all to get out right there and take another look at the sky for a while. It was insane. Whether you do this solo or with other people, you will thoroughly enjoy the entire day.
Amazing Tour - Worth every minute!
Rayetta_S, Sep 2023
The Lava Tube and Star Gazing were the most enjoyable part of our trip. Aaron was a pleasure and shared his knowledge of the Island. He has a great sense of humor I have a new appreciation of the geology, geography and history of the Island. He helped with our special accommodations. The complete experience was well worth the time. The time flew by.
Checked all the boxes!
alyssa_r, Sep 2023
Had such a great time on our tour…Dreu had a lot of knowledge and brought fun to the tour. One of my concerns about a 12 hour tour was whether I would have enough bathroom and food opportunities, but our stops were perfectly timed to accommodate for both. And you can’t beat the breathtaking views and nature. Would definitely recommend.
Great whole-day tour of the South and Volcano Center
Jose_M, Sep 2023
Todd's guidance and narrative was the best part of everything and especially during the stargazing. I would hire him again for other excursions if I could. Every place was unique and beautiful. I highly recommend it to everyone. Thank you for everything.
The best tour we have had
Rosina_S, Sep 2023
I had the pleasure of experiencing a tour guided by Todd, and I can confidently say that he is the best stargazer I've ever encountered. Todd's friendly and polite demeanor, coupled with his extensive knowledge of the island, made our tour truly exceptional. Throughout the journey, Todd never ceased to amaze us with his continuous introductions, even while tirelessly driving. His dedication to ensuring the group's well-being was evident, as he used his high emotional intelligence to navigate and resolve issues between a couple, making everyone feel comfortable and at ease. What truly impressed me was Todd's attentiveness to our interests. When we mentioned our goal of visiting all the US national parks, he immediately understood and took us to the visitor center to obtain stamps for our US national park passport. This personalized touch made our experience all the more special. I wholeheartedly recommend their tours to everyone. We had the chance to meet another group on the same day, and their beaming faces reflected the joy and happiness that this tour brought us. Todd's exceptional guiding skills and genuine care for his guests make this an unforgettable experience.
Unforgettable experience!

The craters, volcano pipe, steam vents were amazing. Derek has so much to share with great enthusiasm!
Worth every penny!
Lisa_G, Sep 2023
Aaron was a fantastic guide, very knowledgable! All day drive around the island, stopping at interesting places. Loved the black sand beach and star gazing! Meals, snacks. And water provided.
Whole trip was fantastic....
Thomas_P, Sep 2023
Whole trip was fantastic. Having been to this island 17 times and seen every part of it we still managed to discover new places. Also Aaron our driver and guide was exceptional. Great driver and very helpful in all aspects of the trip.
