What a Riot!!

What a way to tour Kona!! Aaron and Penny were accommodating providing my wife and I with the must see beaches, snorkeling spots and scenic sites. Driving around the Kona area with the sun and warm breeze, these buggies are street legal, fast and a lot of fun to drive. Cooler, beach chairs, umbrella and blue tooth speaker were included which were used constantly. We rented for 4 hours but needed to tag on extra time because we were having so much fun!! We highly recommend this experience!!!

We booked two buggy's and owner Aaron was in contact by text from day one. We arrived in port from Norwegians "Pride of America" a little early and Aaron and his wife were there within 15 minutes to drop off buggy's. Pick up is in walking distance from ship. Buggy's included: cooler, towels, umbrella, beach chairs, and a blue tooth speaker. We drove all over the island and had a lot of people asking where we rented them. There is no other excursion like this on the island. It's not offered through the ship which keeps the cost so reasonable. This was one of our highlights of our trip and would give it more stars if possible. Mahalo Aaron🤙🤙🌈🏄🌋🏝

We booked the car several weeks in advance. Aaron was very prompt and helpful in getting the proper documents needed for the car. He also offered us suggestions of where to go. His recommendation for a beach was wonderful. He met us at a restaurant near the pier where we got of the boat. It was well worth having the beach chairs, umbrella and towels. It was a great ride and wonderful experience for my daughter and me.

This was SO MUCH FUN! Aaron and Debi were very easy to work with. Everything with this reservation went according to plan. We had a great time driving around the west side of the Big Island, in the sunshine, with the top down. Lots of people were jealous!
