The tour guides were fun and informative. We all loved learning about the different Polynesian cultures.
Our tour guide was amazing!!! We learned how to split a coconut, and other great things. We also learned a bit about the culture of Samoa, Fiji and of course, Hawai’i.
ATV Experience Kona way
experience was so great! they were so organized from checking in, helmet fitting, rules and policies, getting to know how to operate your ATV, to the whole island adventure! History, music, games and experience are packed into this 2 hour ride! Big shout out to the team! Mahalo!
Great tour and fun ATV ride through the lush tropical place on the Big Island. Very different than most of the island.
Had a great time. The guides where very knowledgeable and fun to be with.
5 stars. I recommend this tour. Anyone can do this. Riding the trails where smooth for the most part for being on a mountain. Had a great time.
I laughed so much I cried plus a few hints
I had booked 7 ATVs but I have arthritis in my hands and knew it would be challenging for me to maneuver the ATV. Instead I rode with one of our guides Sammie. Sammie was friendly and funny. Our other guide Steven was just as funny and friendly. Our tour brought us to various Polynesian cultures. What we learned and the activities were informative but in a fun way. We had a lot of fun and a lot of laughs. On our one stop, my partner participated. He was so hilarious we were rolling on the floor laughing and crying from laughing so hard.
Sammie and Steven were on top of safety and dedicated to our safety. We really had great guides.
A great way to spend a few hours. A few hints, expect to get dusty and dirty! Avoid wearing white! Bring a bandana for your head for when you put on the helmet. If you decide not to use the bandana, you can use it as a mask or bring a mask with you since there’s a lot of dust that gets kicked up.
Fun ride with great guides
This was so much fun. Great mix of driving an ATV and learning about culture and history in a way that didn't feel exploitative. Highly recommend!
Other than the ride, the...
Other than the ride, the stories and experiences were just awesome and informative. Pono and Sarah did a wonderful job!
Our tour leader "Manny" (not sure of the spelling) did a fabulous job. My husband and I enjoyed the Tonga, Fiji and Samoa Island history. Manny made it fun with the drum session, the pineapple and coconut demonstrations and tastings. His beautiful wood carvings decorated all of the "villages" we visited. Learned a lot and had a great adventure at the same time.
Great fun! Beautiful scenery, awesome guides, time well spent
Tip: the road is dusty and very bumpy in some areas. Make sure to take a bandana to cover nose and mouth and some sort of goggles. Also, if you squeeze your legs together while riding, it makes for a much smoother and enjoyable ride.
