Wonderful tour with Ricky. We had a group of about 26 people. Ricky provided 2 nice vans & picked us up at the port. He is extremely knowledgeable about Hilo and Hawaiian culture. He took us to all the areas listed on the itinerary and was willing to take us to other areas of interest if feasible. We were never... More

We had a great day with Ricky. He always stayed ahead of the tour buses, had a lot of information and took us to places not on his itinerary. He let us stay at each spot without rushing us. I'm sure the people on the motor coach didn't receive the wealth of information we did. Ricky had plenty of water... More

We were a group of 12 seniors and took a tour with Ricky in Hilo. It was the highlight of our trip to Hawaii. Ricky took us to many places around Hilo and we saw most of all the highlights. He picked us up at the Cruise Terminal in a very comfortable van that seated 12 comfortably. We had a... More

Six of us did a tour with Ricky and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves on the tour that was at least six hours. He met us at the pier to our cruise ship and took us in his air conditioned van to so many places, including Volcano national park, macadamia nut factory, orchid place, black sand beach, lava tubes, waterfalls and so...

Based on comments on trip advisor and cruise critic, I contacted Ricky's Tours for our day in Hilo. Ricky was quick to respond to my email inquiries and provided clear, friendly communication. Hilo gets about 278 days of rain in a year and true to stats it was raining lightly when we arrived on Pride of America in August. Ricky... More

We sailed on the NCL Pride of America on May 10 2014... we used a wonderful semi-Private Guide for Hilo - Ricky's Tours. Ran $65 (+ tip for all day). Ricky picked us up at the Pier in his small tour van with 4 others. He took us to Rainbow Falls, several stops at Volcanoes National Park, Lua Manu lava... More

We toured with Ricky on our recent trip to Hilo. Ricky is extremely professional and provided a commentary as he drove us around. There were some places we were unable to visit due to road closures, but Ricky made up for it by taking us to other places. The very reasonable cost included our entry to The Vocanoes National Park,... More

Booked a tour with Ricky when we arrived on the cruise. Very informative and has really great conversations! We had a great time with the whole group and learned a lot of new things about Hilo. He will tell you all about the history and even a little bit about his family's past. Took us to more places than we... More

Ricky is very knowledgeable and provides a very thorough tour. We saw much more than what was offered on the cruise for a lesser cost. I think we saw all the options the cruise offered and we did it with just one tour. For elderly people it could be a bit difficult getting in and out of the van so... More
