Great trip up Mauna Kea

We felt very lucky to be able to book our trip last minute to go up Mauna Kea. We rented an all terrain Jeep to do this, but last minute realized was going to be very difficult to go up to the peak driving ourselves. Our tour guides, Wes and his partner, were really professional, knowledgeable, courteous, and made us really feel at home. We really learned a lot about the Hawaiian culture, history of the mountain, the stars; got great views of the island from the top, saw great sunset, and of course had great photos for memories. We very highly recommend this tour, A must thing to do on Big Island.

From pick up to drop off the service was incredible. Our tour guide and driver were extremely personable, and genuinely dedicated to ensuring that we had a great experience. The Mauna Kea summit is A once in a lifetime experience that everyone should enjoy. The stargazing at the end was an added plus. I would highly recommend this experience and Hawaiian Eyes.

Simply put, a wonderful and amazing tour. The tour guides Wes and Aoki are super nice and knowledgeable. Wes is really friendly, social, and fun to know. (Ask him about his favorite restaurants in the area or his fishing experiences!). Aoki is a great driver and an extraordinary photographer. The pictures he took of us were professional-level, and even better, complementary! If you want to visit Mauna Kea and see breathtaking views, would recommend going with Wes and Aoki 10/10.

Wes was an excellent guide and Aoki-San a fantastic driver and enthusiastic photographer. We were picked up right on time, driven and given some great background information on just Mauna Kea but the history of Big Island and the state of Hawaii. Wes added some authenticity, being born and raised here and answering whatever questions we had. The lunch was surprisingly better than we expected, had some delicious sandwiches. The experience of summiting the mountain was breathtaking, getting to see all the observatories dotting the top was incredible for us. Lastly, the guided stargazing was such a cool experience, having constellations and important stars pointed out for you directly against the sky. Our nighttime star pictures came out GREAT and we really appreciated being offered that as an all-inclusive part of the tour. Highly recommend this tour group to anyone!

We didn’t get to go on this tour. We had car trouble and had to be towed back to Hilo. We tried to explain this to the tour operator early in the day and request a refund. They asked us to get an Uber and then marked us as a no-show so that Viator would not refund us.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2021
We're so sorry for your car trouble and the problems it caused you. Unfortunately, as you were informed when you made your reservation, our company's policy and that of Viator is that cancellations must be made at least 24 hours before a tour in order to receive a refund. This allows us to do things like cancel meal orders and contact other customers who are on the waiting list. At that time of your cancellation, which was 1 hour before the tour started, we already prepared your special requested food, and everything for you two. Please understand we can't take anybody's cancellation on the tour date. If we accept it, our business can't survive. Mahalo, Yumiko

Who knew? The views of the sunset above the clouds was a worthwhile bucket list experience. That plus the spectacular star show afterwards made this a wonderful tour. Stefan and Jin did a great job guiding the group and took fantastic photos for us.

What an experience! The views from the top were amazing. This tour was great. Our guides, Stefan and Jin, were both super helpful and friendly. We all really appreciated the photos they took as well as their suggestions on how to best compose some of our personal pics (Appreciate the help Jin) This tour was something we will all remember.
