I wasn’t sure what to expect when I planned my tour here. Although I love nature I’m not particularly into the different varieties of plants, trees, etc. however after visiting the cloud forest I gained a lot more respect for nature. Kelly is incredibly knowledgeable and it was so interesting to learn about the different species and origins of everything the cloud forest has to offer. Would definitely recommend! It was a great time !

Great tour! Kelly is awesome and very passionate about his craft. I am admittedly not much of a "plant person" and always shy away from doing things comparable to this when visiting tropical places, but Kelly's passion is infectious and will get you excited about what you are seeing. If you're on Kona side and are in a time crunch as far as things to do while you are on island, I would definitely recommend this over a trip to the botanical garden or the like.

What a great experience! Our guide Kelly has such an enthusiasm for nature. The botanical gardens on Hilo side are a great visit as well but this trail tour makes the forest more alive. He is able to share the many stories and experiences he has of the cloud forest down to each of the plants grown along the trail. Plant origins, how they propagate, where the take place in natural history. To the point of I wish that I had taken notes!😜. During the tour he goes into the work he’s done at the government level for the forest and specifically the eucalyptus tree. Not to pat his back so much but to get the word out on how much we don’t know about this beautiful resource. The trails are under constant maintenance and well groomed although tricky sometimes with the natural root systems of the forest so, walking sticks are provided and a nice touch. New trails are also under development. He takes any time needed to answer peoples questions and will leave you wanting to hear more. ...
