Best guides on the Island; Madi and Mark were so knowledgeable and interactive, couldn’t have asked for better guides and new friends for this activity! Quickly became our favorite activity we’ve done the whole 10 days we’ve been here! Would do it again, so much fun! And the hike was nowhere near as bad as we were expecting! 10/10!

This hike was amazing! There were so many beautiful waterfalls. And it was very unique to get to swim under a waterfall. The view at lunch was spectacular! And Mike is an entertaining guide. I highly recommend this experience!

This was a great experience. Our guide was very knowledgeable and kept us at a good pace. We had a total of 5 in our party, including a 5 year old and a 7 year old. The kids were able to keep up without any problems.

Great app and tour of the big island. Very accurate gps coordination with tour speaking. I would highly recommend. So Worth it.

It was really great! Mateo was amazing! I really loved the whole experience, would recommend 100%
