Waipio Valley is inhabited by a small group of counter-culture folks "living off the grid", and I believe this tour captures that spirit nicely. This is not the polished, slick, everything runs like clock-work tour. This is essentially a one-man operation (Bob), who has been...More

Our party of four has a 5 year old traveling with us. He loved drive, the wild horses, the wagon ride and the flowers.

Took the valley tour. Fun 25%grade to get to the valley floor, then the wagon and mules trip. Driver Bob knew the history and flora, the ride was fun, and we got to see a rare side of Hawaii.

Very much the adventure-not for those who want luxury. With that you get beauty and nature. Expect the natural beauty of the back woods and views of cliffs and waterfalls. The van isn't fancy or cool. It's just transportation to the wagon. The wagon is...More
