"This tour made my whole vacation"
May, 2016
This was the most amazing day of the whole trip. Jon, our driver, was the most knowledgable, interesting, and thoughtful tour guide. He taught us all about the natural and mythological history of the islands, made several scenic stops -- including stargazing -- and was just all around awesome the whole day. As a first time zipliner, I was really nervous about it, but the guides were super fun, very professional, and I felt safe from the very beginning. The tour included lunch and dinner, and both were excellent fare: sandwiches and tropical fruits during the ziplining, and a beautiful buffet at Volcano Wineries. The nature walk around Kilauea Caldera was fascinating, and seeing the glowing crater after dark was breathtaking. I have not stopped talking about this tour since I got back, and the response I get is "wow, you got a lot more out of Hawaii than I did when I went there!"

I would take this tour again. I would request Jon because he was amazing!

"Went zip lining and loved it."

We are a family of 4 with a youngster of 4, so we had to split up. Kapohokine offered a walk along for myself and our young child while my wife and older son went zip lining. I loved doing this with them as it made us part of their experience. Plus, all the camera pictures I was able to get while they went zip lining above my head. My wife and older son loved the course too while they went over waterfalls. The course was great, the guides made my family feel safe. And a special shout out for our tour driver Kekei, for making that trip just that much better with your local stories and making it feel special. Absolutely recommend this company, can't wait to get back to the Big Island and go zip lining again!

Even with the alternate locations due to closure of the Volcano National Park, this tour was a highlight of our trip. We had a great time with the zipline (kids' favorite activity in a 10 day trip full of fun activities) and the volcano winery was awesome. However, the most surprising favorite part of the day was our tour guide, Kent. His expansive knowledge of culture, history, botany, and volcanic / geologic areas was impressive - mostly these were presented in entertaining stories. Kent was our

I was very nervous about zip lining, but the team of Kapohokine Adventures made sure I was comfortable and confident every step of the way. Allison, Destiny, Ona, and Jessica were the dream team! If you are hesitant about zip lining this is the group to hang out with. With their help and expertise I was able to have the thrill of my life zipping over waterfalls and the rainforest.
