We were in Hawaii in May/June 2015. Part of our 2 weeks in Hawaii was a one week cruse with NCL. We sailed to 4 islands while on this cruise. One of our stops was to Hilo, on the east coast of the Big Island. We had 8 hours available to us when we docked in HIlo. We were interested... More

I am ashamed. Ashamed I have not reviewed Wild Orchids yet. We were with Lee in January 2015. We flew in in the morning where he picked us up at the airport. There our journey began. It began with the Honu Blessing, where we saw eye to eye one of the most blessed creatures of Hawaii,Honu. Our travels took us... More

We had a limited amount of time in Hawaii and wanted to see all we could. We decided to go on a private tour of the volcanos. We ended up having one of the best days of the trip. Lee is knowledgable, funny, and knew exactly which spots we needed to go to to get the full beauty and grandeur... More

We spent one day with Lee and he's the best!! He brought us around Hilo for 8 hours. He not only took us to all the local spots, he's very knowledgable about the history about the island. He spoke about the history of the island while pointing out the beautiful things as we drove. You can tell him what you... More

Lee is the very definition of the modern Renaissance Man. His knowledge of and respect for the culture, mythology, and history of the Hawaiian Islands is unparalleled. We were so impressed. Such a great guy, and a true pleasure to spend the day with. Although we were staying in Kona, we met him in Hilo after a trip to the... More

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
