Hawaii

Practical Info

If driven without stopping, the Hamakau Coast from Hilo to Waipio takes a little over an hour. This stretch of coastline is windy and wet, although the 80-some annual inches of rain keep the waterfalls and valleys alive. To avoid the rain and beat the wind, mornings are often the best time of day to see it before the afternoon tradewinds arrive.

This was an amazing tour. The tour guide, Val, was so knowledgeable and customized the tour to our liking since it was just the two of us. He introduced us to unique foods to the island. Even bought us leis for our 60th birthday celebration! The sites were beautiful. Highly recommended!

It was a very private tour, driver plus my friend and I. Driver was very friendly, pleasant and attentive and you could feel he really loves what he does. Would recommend! Side note: be prepared to get soaked, it rains a lot in this area.

From start to finish Val made sure that our experience was perfect. I booked this for my mom’s birthday and he arrived with a beautiful lei for her. He was so knowledgeable and was always willing to take pictures for us (there were a lot) he even recommended a great place to eat lunch called Pineapples. He not only was a great tour guide but great company that me and my family enjoyed! Definitely recommend this tour. Thank you for all you did Val from Lauryn, Herschelle, Laurence, Bridget, and Eleanore.

Pastries and waterfalls with Val for our 30th anniversary

Private Full-day Hamakua Coast and Sugar Tour from Kailua-Kona
Val gave us a fabulous private tour of the islands waterfalls sugar and coffee. Most memorable: we traveled down a winding road lined with banana trees to see a temple and an old harbor with a black sand beach and such blue clear water. I didn't think he could outdo Rainbow Falls, however Val took us to a waterfall that he said not too many people go to. I believe it was more beautiful than Rainbow Falls. We enjoyed the white pineapple at the farmers market. We enjoyed stopping for Masaladas too.Val was very accommodating to my husband and I with our limited mobility. He was very knowledgeable about the islands and answered all of our questions. We would have him tour us again. Thank you.
