Amazing and Fun
, Dec 2021
It was a fantastic hike with beautiful scenery. Mark, our guide, was very friendly and knowledgeable about our surroundings. I highly recommend it. You must wear sneakers or hiking shoes. (no sandals or water shoes).
Amazing Vistas and Subterranean Adventure
, Dec 2021
Really enjoyed this outing with my stepson. Mateo was an excellent guide, the scenery was spectacular, and everything we needed was provided, including hiking poles, small backpacks, snacks, water refills, and rain jackets (just in case). Learned a lot and loved the chance to see the island from a different vantage point.
One of the best things I did in Hawaii!!

I loved being able to see up close what lives on the lush green mountain above the beach! It was really cool to learn about Hawaiian culture and the native plants too! Many thanks to Mark for being a great a caring guide
Great Hike

Great hike through multiple Hawaiian ecosystems. Mark, our guide, was very knowledgeable and super friendly. Kept a pace that was sustainable for everyone in the group. Highly recommend if you are looking to get back to real Hawaiian nature.

Fantastic experience learning about Kona crater and tube!
, Apr 2021
Mark, our guide was pleasant and very knowledgeable. Informative tour. Fun to learn about the different plant growth@topography, climbing thru the tube, the crater, the views. Great Mid level private hike. Highly recommend.
Hike to some "Crater Obvious" parts of the island!
, Apr 2021
This hike was the highlight of my trip to the Big Island. Mark was an excellent and very knowledgeable guide. He monitored our fitness level (we all said go, go go!) and helped us older folks when needed. There were five of us besides Mark and it was the perfect number during this pandemic. Each group had their own part of the bus going to and from the hiking area and masks were worn. There was ample hand sanitizer. Once out on the trail (not really a trail, but goat paths) it was easy to put the pandemic aside and focus on the natural beauty of the area. This is not a gentle walk in the park, but a serious hike and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to see a seldom seen part of Hawaii and is i reasonable shape. Sunscreen is a must, as there is little shade.
