A great tour for all ages!

We had the pleasure of having Dreu as our guide on the Twilight and Stargazing tour. There were 10 in the group from ages 4 to 60. He was an amazing source of knowledge of everything Hawaiian. He kept us all entertained for almost 12 hours. At the end of the tour we all left with a better appreciation for the Hawaiian culture and landscape. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone. Dreu gave us so much information on the Volcanos, the Black Sand beaches, the coffee industry and the night sky. We really a fun time.

Perfect One Day Tour!

I had only a long weekend on the Big Island and Wasabi's Twilight Volcano Tour was perfect for me. The professional guide Dreu [-] provided a great mix of information and history on the well paced 12 hour adventure. I could not have seen or learned all of it on my own. I especially liked the National Park! I would recommend that tour and especially Dreu [-] as a excellent guide.
