Booked this private tour of Volcano National Park for my wife and I and our two daughters, ages 13 and 11 based on the great reviews on Trip Advisor. We wanted a small, personalized tour and boy did we get one. Tyler, our guide, was absolutely fantastic taking us to parts of VNP that not a lot of people get... More

My husband and I booked a private tour of the Volcano National Park as part of our honeymoon adventure. We did quite a bit of research ahead of time, and between the stellar TripAdvisor reviews, the reasonable price (compared with similar top-rated companies), and our friendly communication with Hayley, we were confident that Akamai was the way to go. After... More

We booked this trip 6 months prior to our arrival, I spoke with Hayley each time. She was very informative and helpful in arranging our tour. Tyler was our private guide for a party of 4. He was very knowledgeable and tailored our tour just to our wants. He gave us every bit of our money's worth plus more! We... More

We booked a private tour with Haley for the six of us who were on a Princess Cruise. Haley met us promptly at the agreed time and we were shuttled about in a very comfortable 7 seater van. We were in total awe walking around the Volcano National Park. It was so breathtaking. Haley was very knowledgeable about the island... More

We had a fabulous tour of the Volcano National Park area with Tyler during spring break. My husband, 11 year old son and I had fun and learned so much about the area. We never would have done so much on our own and I'm so glad that we chose to do the private tour with Akamai Adventures. It felt... More

I booked a private all day tour with Haley for my husband, 73 year old mother, 11 year old son, 7 year old daughter and I during mid-winter break. Haley was so flexible with the itinerary and VERY knowledgeable about the area. My son was in heaven talking to her about the volcano and asking questions. At the end of... More

We hired Akamai Adventure tours for a private tour of the Volcano. Tyler met us at the volcano visitor center and our adventure began. He took us to a remote path off the main road and we ended up hiking on a lava field. It was spectacular! Tyler has a wealth of knowledge about the volcano and Hawaiian History. We... More

This was our final tour on a four island stop from a cruise ship. Hands down....this was the very best tour and guide! Tyler, the guide, was fantastic. We've all been on those big bus tours with the guide who has the memorized spiel, the pack 'em in buses, the lines, and the bathroom breaks to accommodate the herd. The... More

No worries on this tour with Tyler as his skills and talent as a guide was impeccable. His knowledge of the land, history and culture in Hawaii made me crave for more. So glad I came over to the Big Island from Maui for this tour. Well worth the time and effort.
