This tour was wonderful! From the moment Ricky picked us up at the cruse terminal to the drop off, this tour was wonderful. Our ship arrived and Ricky was there, just as scheduled.

We reserved the tour far in advance via e-mail and Ricky was always prompt in replying to my e-mails to him as Coordinator of the tour and quoted us a very reasonable price per person... More

We only had one day to visit Hilo and were very impressed with Ricky's Tour. We visited Rainbow Falls, Akatsuka Orhid garden, Richardson Ocean Beach (Black Sand Beach) Banyan Drive, Volcano National Park, Thurston Lava Tube, only to name a few. Ricky was very attentive, knew his stuff and price of tour well worth it! Thanks Ricky

Ricky has a brand new 15 passenger bus so we were all very comfortable. My mother-in-law uses a walker and she was able to get in and out with help. The tour was great - from Rainbow Falls to several volcano stops, and Ricky was very knowledgeable. We were on a cruise and he met us at the cruise terminal... More

Ricky is very knowledgeable about the areas on the tour. We were on a cruise and I booked Ricky independently of the cruise ship excursion and we were extremely happy with our decision. There were 10 of us in Ricky's nice new and very clean van. Ricky is extremely accommodating and allowed us to wander the sights without hurrying us... More

Our extended family of eight (ages 6-67) spent a wonderful day with Ricky on his volcano & waterfall tour in his brand new and supremely comfortable air conditioned van. From the Liliuokalani Garden to Rainbow Falls to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park including Kilauea Crater and the Thurston Lava Tube to a rare black sand beach, and numerous other sites, this...

Ricky shared some great spots with us on the island; gave us enough time to enjoy every stop. There was a tree blocking the road to the Volcano National Park so he had to eliminate that stop from the tour, so he deducted $20 dollars pp from the total price. I would highly recommend this tour.
