“Great easy ride with great views of Kohala”
Reviewed 10 March 2014

We took the afternoon ride and really enjoyed it! We have experience riding ATVs which I think most everyone on our tour also had experience. However, if you don't have experience, you could easily take this tour. They give you a course on how to ride and won't let you go until you and they feel comfortable with your ATV skills. There were 8 people on our tour along with 2 guides. The guides are fifth generation Hawaiian who have grown up in the area and are familiar with the land. They were very knowledgeable about the Big Island and its history. The trails ran through many different types of terrains and beautiful scenery. We had a couple of stops that allowed us to rest and learn about the land and look at some of the most gorgeous views! The last stop at the waterfall and dip in the water was quite refreshing and another spectacular view!

“Fun and informative atv ride”
Reviewed 2 March 2014 via mobile

Had a great time yesterday with guides Daryl and Cherlise. My bf rode the atv while they gave me the alternative four wheel drive that was easier to handle. This company was safety oriented and provided helmets and gloves as well as pre-tour practice rides to make sure we are comfortable. Daryl was very knowledgeable about the local vegetation and history. We also took one short hike and stopped by 2 waterfalls. I got a chance to swim in the 2nd waterfall. We also got to taste fresh guava and passion fruit picked during our hike. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this activity to friends and family.

“What a Fun Time - Very Safe”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

My husband and I decided to experience some action on the ATV's and were very pleased with this Company. They are serious about the safety of their clients and very friendly too! Our group had to go through a quick safety course to ensure all drivers could handle the off road vehicles. The equipment supplied was in top condition. Keli'i and Travis were wonderful guides, taking us deep in the rain forest and up Hillsides to the waterfalls. Highly recommend this Company, which is easy to find with friendly, happy staff.

“Fun trip for the family”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

We had a great time on the ATV outfitters 22 mile tour. We have 3 kids - 15, 10, and 6 and all had a good time. The waterfall that we were able to swim in was amazing. Our tour guides were fantastic and gave us some great insider stories about the island. We had Travis as one of our guides and another young man and both were very nice and polite. The only thing I would have liked to have changed - I would have like to stop at more of the scenic places to take pictures. Other than that we had a great time and would recommend it to a friend!

“Had a Blast”
Reviewed 15 February 2014

I went on the waterfall tour. What a lot of fun. Our guides, JC and Shannon were friendly and enjoyed sharing their knowledge of the area and life on the Big Island. We drove to two waterfalls, the second of which entailed a short climb, but it was well worth it. This waterfall had a pool in which several people took a swim.

The tour took us through farm and pasture land. It was interesting watching reaction of the cattle as we whizzed by. Highly recommend.
