We spent one and a half days with Lee and got a really fantastic tour of Hilo. He took us everywhere, and gave us great insight into all of the various features of the island. Having a one-on-one tour with Lee is so much better than any other way to see things, if, for no other reason, than you get... More

We toured with Lee on December 31, 2013. There were five in our party ranging in age from 24-51. Since we were staying in Kona, Lee met us at the volcano and we spent our whole tour there. The tour was excellent - all of us felt the same. Lee had expert knowledge of the volcano but more then that... More

We could not have asked for a better tour guide! Lee was great. We learned so much about Hawaii, the Hawaiian people, plants, animals, food, etc. You name it and Lee knew about it. The one-on-one tours (We did a full day and a half day) were so much better than a group tour. We got to see what we... More

Wow. This is the best private tour we've ever taken. Lee took the three of us on 2 separate tours (as we had 7 days on the island). We learned and observed so many things about the Big Island that we never could have seen on our own or via a bus-group tour. Our experience would not have been the... More

Last April our cruise ship had a stop in Hilo and we had the great fortune of having a tour with Lee of Wild Orchid Tours. Lee met us right as we got off the ship and just the four of us got into his very comfortable SUV. Immediately we went in the opposite direction of all the other tours... More

Lee (tour guide) was very informative and knowledgeable. Sites we visited were awesome. Would liked to have seen more waterfalls up close maybe swim a little at the waterfall site.

We found Wild Orchid through Trip Advisor and set-up our tour with Renata. Lee and Renata are the owners and Lee met us in Hilo in a clean SUV to start our tour at 10am. Lee is an amazing guide and storyteller. It was just the 4 of us and Lee. We started out seeing some cool waterfalls that aren't... More

My husband and I had the good fortune of being seated next to Lee on our flight from LA to Honolulu recently. Little did we know what a blessing that would be. Over the course of the flight through casual conversation, Lee gave us information on Hawaiian history and culture, suggested places to see and where to find the best... More

Lee was very knowledgeable and entertaining. He was patient with all our questions. We had a group of 10 people but he was very good to make sure all of us felt like he was doing the tour for us specifically. Highly recommend.
