This is a no frills bus service that will get you around Hilo. For the price and experience it is well worth it just to see the Rainbow falls. You would miss out on a lot of these locations like the Botanical gardens, volcanic beaches where we saw Sea Turtles, the King's statue and the local markets. The drivers are... More

Just got back from a trip to the Hawaiian Islands and found this little Gem. For 20 US each we got a jump on and off bus visiting different attractions and great commentary from the drivers . First stop water falls only about 8 people on the bus and the driver said he would wait for 15mins if we just... More

The $20 price is good and the stops were good ones. Loved seeing Rainbow Falls and King Kamehameha statue (the bus waited for us at both these spots). At the Japanese Gardens, however, there was a very long wait to get back on a bus and, once we got on, we had to stand to the next stop, Black Sand... More

Awesome company. Friendly and knowledge staff. A great way to see Hilo $20 for all day. Can get off and on at any one of 7 places and catch the next bus. Would recommend this anytime

We stopped in Hilo as part of our cruise and didn't have any plans for the day; we walked around the small town and were pretty disappointed. Half of our group went back on the ship, but some of us were determined to see something more exciting, so we jumped on this tour. It was cheap ($20 per person) and... More

I wandered off the ship without a plan and I only opted for the Hoppa On Hoppa Off tour as it was cheaper than a return trip to town. Fate. I had the most brilliant time. Saw all the sites and enjoyed the informative and witty narration from each and every driver. An added bonus was being pointed in the... More

Our driver was Kemo and he was very safe in driving the whole trip. Not only was he very informative in pointing out the different sites, but he was knowledgeable with Hawaiian traditions and beliefs. One site was closed due to electrical failure and he did not miss a beat. He said "no problem" I will show you folks something... More

Ok having arrived via princess we hadn't booked anything with them as nothing looked too good and what they had were very expensive. So on leaving the cruise terminal we were greeted by many offers of seeing the Island at different cost so we decided to do a hoppa on hoppa off $20 each so away out from cruise terminal... More

The bus is ideal to see many of the attractions as you can get off at anything that takes your fancy and jump on the next bus. The buses are frequent and in a loop. The drivers are very knowledgeable and friendly too.

We are staying on the other side of the island and decided to drive over to Hilo. We saw one of the buses as we drove into town and, as we have used this sort of service in cities around the world over the last forty something years, decided to use it to get to the most interesting places and,...
