Historical Kona with a spooky twist. Nice to take in Kona at night, pretty area.
Aug 2021 • Family
Historical prospective revolving around the mysteries of ancient Hawaii in the Kona area. Don’t worry our guide made sure we did not take any “spirits” home with us. Fun time. Get bug spray for your legs if its a still nite

Great experience with Hawaiian History
Zack did a great job explaining the history of Hawaii and taking us to so great spots in Hawaiian history. Be prepared to stand a most of the time. It was well worth 2 hours to get some knowledge of the Hawaii island. We didn't get to see any extra normal activity but we did get to learn the possibilities of island.

Pleasantly surprised and refreshingly different tour
I only booked this tour because my friend wanted to do it so I came in not expecting much. I was not into it in the beginning at all, but Zach was very engaging and shortly after I got sucked into it pretty fast. First an foremost, Zach passionately loves what he does and it shows through, which made the tour so awesome. In addition, he was also very knowledgeable of Hawaiian history. We started off at the Kailua Pier and ended near the Hulie’e Palace. Zach was very engaging and even let us walk around with his paranormal activity equipments! I got to hold one of them until it went off while I was holding it and freaked me out so I gave it right back to him (he ended up burning extra sage at the end near me so I felt a little better). Super creepy considering no one else’s went off. The tour was about 2 hours and Zach even gave us a copy of his book which I quickly read. Only thing I regret is not getting him to sign it!!!!! Thanks to him we discovered the gem that is Hulie’e Palace and got to visit it on a separate. We took a cruise a few days later and saw Zach again at the pier and I would absolutely do it again if we weren’t waking up at 5am to drive to VNP. If we had more days on the Big Island we would book some of the other tours with Zach because he was one of our favorite tour guides on the Big Island (other one is Gary from the Wapio Valley tour) and overall counting Maui. Lastly, he’s also easy on the eyes so that is always a plus 🤪😆😍

tl;dr: worth it, informational, Zach is an awesome tour guide who is very knowledgeable and passionate about what he does.

MAHALO for your review! 😊😊 It was so funny when you had the hit on the Para-Light EMF detector, and when those people walked by and overheard us talking about ghosts and scary stuff...their facial expressions were priceless! LOL 😂🤣 Please reach out anytime you're back in Kona, there's plenty of other mystery to explore! 🤙

Rich in History
Explore the rich history of this magical town with some of the best guides on island. You’ll learn about paranormal activity as well as possibly have your own sighting. I highly recommend this two hour tour.

History and Haunting...YES!
Zach has a fire in his eye for what he does and for the history of the Big Island. If you want to hear about the best possibilities of what is still roaming and lingering around the Big Island in the Paranormal Realm, we highly recommend you take the Big Island Ghost Tour. You just may have some hard to explain experiences yourself.

excellent customer service
May 2021 • Family
I had booked the walking ghost tour almost one month in advance, and was super excited about it. However, the day of the tour 2 people in my party got food poisoning, so obviously we were unable to go. I called the company about 30 minutes before the tour was scheduled to let them know, fully knowing that they have a 24 hr cancellation policy. Without me even saying anything, Zach told me I will be getting a full refund and wished us well. I was so pleasantly surprised. The next time we're on the big island I will definitely book again (and hopefully be able to go).

REGARDLESS IF YOU'RE A BELIEVER OR NOT, THIS TOUR IS HISTORICALLY WORTH IT!
Mar 2021 • Couples
Zack is the sweetest! He called me back immediately after I emailed him, 6 hours prior to the tour & was very informative on how to meet up with him. Since this is our first time in Hawaii, that was reassuring.
His passion and expertise that he offers with the accuracy of the historical information and stories of Kailua-Kona & the King... Such interesting & rich cultural significance of the island's history.
And Wow! We even caught a couple of pics of an apparition at the palace, center balcony window, in complete darkness! I was shocked, but, it was there!
He even used certain devices to try & pick up any communication from any spirits that might want to contact us. SUPER FUN & AN INCREDIBLE NIGHT!
Wear your walking shoes & bring a good camera with multiple burst shot capability... TRUST ME, YOU WON'T BE SORRY!!! & he signed our book, too...

Amazing tour
Feb 2021 • Couples
Zach is very passionate, genuine, and professional. He has a vast knowledge of the Big Island's history, and we could tell he does a lot of research. He was very prompt, and was open to many questions. We love going on ghost tours, and this was definitely one of the best we have been on.
