When we could not get on the ship’s excursion, we researched others for Hilo, and found this one with C Big Island Tours. It was great. Our driver/guide, Paul, was wonderful. His insights, his information, his sharing, his singing (yes, he led us in the C & H Sugar Song, new to most of us, and of course in Tiny Bubbles). This tour was everything we wanted and more. Great time at nut farm, orchid greenhouses, volcano caldera, and lava hole. Then, as an extra treat, Paul stopped at a black sand beach, where we roamed in the sand and rocks and waves looking for turtles. Perfect end to the tour. Would recommend this to anyone.
We had Edmond as our tour guide in Kona. He was fabulous!! He’s funny and down to earth. We were on a super nice bus and since we only had 10 people, it was even more comfortable. He gave us history and pointed out lots of interesting facts and was able to answer all our questions. I highly recommend C Big Island, and especially Edmond as your guide!!
We had a group of 12. We enjoyed a great day seeing the volcano national park and waterfalls. Walk through the wet lava tube. Your shoes may get wet, come prepared. We had requested Edmund as our tour guide. We were so very lucky to get him for two days as our guide. The second day we did the Kona coffee and chocolate tour. Walk through the dry lava tube here. He was able to give us alot of information about the big island. We certainly enjoyed both tours on the big island. I would highly recommend C Big Island tours. Ask for Edmund, he made the days alot of fun and interesting!
The island of Hawaii is the youngest and largest island in the Hawaiian chain. Nearly twice as big as all of the other Hawaiian Islands combined (hence, its nickname, “Big Island”), its sheer size is awe-inspiring. You can travel through all but four of the world’s different climate zones there, ranging from Wet Tropical to Polar Tundra, a result of the shielding effect and elevations of the massive volcanoes Maunakea and Maunaloa. From the molten magma flowing at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park to the snow-capped heights of Maunakea; from the lush valleys of the Hamakua Coast to the jet-black sands of Punaluu Beach, the island of Hawaii is an unrivaled expression of the power of nature. However you decide to experience the island, it is sure to leave you humbled!
