We were lucky enough to have done many activities on our recent 10 day honeymoon trip to the big island. We had a blast doing everything from relaxing to riding horses, from fishing to zodiac rides through sea caves. We have to say though, that the bike ride we took on Monday, April 6 was the highlight of our vacation. Sure the itinerary was great. The bike ride and sights were breathtaking. We were even lucky enough to have booked our bike ride tour on the same day as another fabulous couple who we enjoyed meeting. However, what we feel really made the trip were our two guides. From the moment we were picked us up, he was hospitable, friendly, and accommodating with all of our questions and requests. We picked up our guide about 45 minutes later and that made our good trip even better — and we hadn’t even gotten on the bikes yet. Both of them have vast knowledge of the local culture and history, and our guide’s degrees in geography, music, and Hawaiian history (coupled with the small group and resulting personal attention we received) made for an incredibly educational tour. As teachers, we understand that educating someone is not simply a matter of just telling them about it. Asking questions, showing real-life examples, and checking for understanding were all strengths of your guides and we loved the warm, helpful treatment we received.
The Bike Volcano staff not only did their jobs, but we feel they went above and beyond to make our bike riding trip the best adventure we experienced on the island. Please pass on our sincere gratitude to them. As their boss and owner of the company, we hope you continue to value and cherish their efforts and hard work. Our wedding went off without a hitch and our honeymoon was filled with a fabulous sequence of activities. In spite of such a memorable past couple of weeks, they truly helped make this experience stand out above so many others.
With genuine appreciation,
