Great excursion. Guide was extremely knowledgeable. Great viewing of the turtles, Kona Coffee excursion was exceptional as was the tour of the Painted Church, the orchid garden and the lunch stop. Highly recommend this tour.

Waste of a lot of money. Saw no turtles, and 2 coffee factories and a bland mom and pop place for lunch... overpriced .

Aloha Joyce, that's really odd that you didn't see the turtles....other guests (like Barbara who also left a review) on same tour exclaimed how neat it was to see them. I know we don't grantee turtles but did you know we have had the Sea Turtles on every tour since we have started the tour a few years ago! Sorry to hear you didn't fully enjoy the tour : /

Drea our tour guide was amazing. Fun and knowledgeable. He took us to an incredible lunch spot. Coffee tour was fun and seeing the turtles in their natural habitat close up was the best.

Enjoyable day. Especially like the Painted Church. We got to see Sea Turtles. Coffee plantation tour was very informative. Sampled lots of coffee before I bought. Driver, Edmund, was great.

Disappointed

We could have done all the items on this tour on our own. And, to top it off, my friend fell on a trail to the ocean, was hurt and opted to go back to our condo. Obviously, the fall wasn't Viator's fault, but we were denied a refund because they said she was tired and didn't want to continue. Our guide said the trail was .1 mile to the beach but it was closer to a mile. I have been trying to contact them but keep getting a reservation company which cannot help me and doesn't have a number for Viator. All very discouraging and disappointing.
