Birds! There are so many different species of birds here in the Kona Cloud Forest! The forest is dense which makes bird watching more challenging. Sometimes the birds all come together in the morning and sit on the branch outside of my porch. On this particular day it appears they were meeting fo...

No regrets whatsoever. This was the last major event I had on my itinerary before flying back home. Completely worth making this guided tour the highlight of the end of my trip. I will definitely be coming back again. Kelly is constantly working on creating new trails so there are absolutely endless possibilities to the 100 acre cloud forest! I love the stories and the knowledge Kelly graciously shared with me throughout the path. 3 hours went by so quick! My soul had a sense of fulfillment just taking in not only the beautiful scenery, but just the way nature lives. The trees and plants find their way to survive and coexist which is just a gorgeous concept overall. People who end up disappointed in the tour, for whatever reason, just do not have a soul and are beyond saving. Definitely take a tour hungry for knowledge and digest everything with all that your senses have to show you!

As a new resident of the Big Island, I am so glad that my husband and I heard about the Kona Cloud Rain Forest tours, because it is definitely a place we will return to with all our visitors! It is like traveling to another world or time, but only 6 miles from the coast. The plants were amazing, and their history was even more so, thanks to the enthusiastic and knowledgeable stories of our guide extraordinaire, Kelly Dunn. Whether you are a resident, or only here for a few days, don't miss this unique tour!

We had no idea what a Cloud Forest was but after reading all the great reviews praising Kelly and his Kona Cloud Forest tours, we decided that this was an opportunity not to be missed! Kelly is extremely knowledgable about the trees and abundant plant life in the forest. His passion for teaching others about it and protecting this magical place was so obvious during every step of our tour. We spent three wonderful hours with Kelly exploring and learning about one of the most unique places on the planet! We will never forget this trip! Charlotte and Scott.
