You will spend much more time riding in a van than anything else. 11 of us were put in a standard passenger van with uncomfortable bench seats. The person leading the tour was a driver not a tour guide. He provided limited information about the sights as we drove. We drove thru

*** Since this review we have adjusted the tour to stop more frequently and we do actually go onto the old Parker ranch and take you to see original Parker home made entirely out of Koa wood! This tour still covers a lot of ground and sights. The Big Island is ....Big *** Aloha, many thanks for your review. The 14 passenger van was assigned to your group as a cutesy not having to pay over 11 seats and going private. The mini bus was available but at an extra cost. Our guides are all highly trained, Im surprised that they only gave limited information. Please let us know who your guide was so it can be addressed. Our vehicles are detailed every day after getting back from tour, unless they got dirty while on tour? The Big Island is well.....big. And it takes some good driving time to cover the whole northern half. Many thanks and we would be happy to have you again to show you our Kona Coffee tour that you may have liked better.
