A highlight of our Big Island vacation was a day with Tyler at Volcano National Park. He is a fountain of knowledge and enthusiasm. He took us on some off beaten track trails.

My wife and I are very active, so we wanted an active tour. Not a lot of sitting in cars, but mostly walking. And we definitely got that. Tyler was great and knew all the history. He took us to some off the beaten track sites. We were able to see the volcano glowing in a more active state. Great... More

She totally tailored the tour around what we wanted to see and made sure we made the best use of our time. She is incredibly knowledgeable and a joy to be with. Doesn't... More

This was a tour that met our ship and took FOUR of us out for the day for just over $100 per person !! I cannot say enough about Haley Ford and our tour. It was what we wanted to do with Haley's input. They only do small groups of 4or 5 people so it is really personalized. She made... More

Haley guided us on a wonderful tour of Hilo, including stops at Volcanoes National Park, Rainbow Falls, a wonderful orchid greenhouse, and a beach where we saw green sea turtles on the rocks. She was willing to personalize the tour and take us to sites we wanted to see. Haley is super knowledgeable about the area, and the Hawaiian Islands... More

A private tour is so much better than a group tour. Tyler was just great and very knowledgeable. It is great to be with a local that knows the volcano and the area. There is no rush to take photos and everything is at your own pace. With Tyler's help we got great pictures of the volcano and rainbows. In... More

Tyler took us for a 7-hour tour of Volcanoes National Park, teaching us about Hawaiian history and culture. He tells wonderful stories and shared much about his life on the island, his family, and his adopted ohana there. We had a picturesque hike and walked through a lava tube, then viewed the caldera at dark. The next day, Hayley taught... More

I thought I had written this review months ago. Tyler was a great guide trying to find breaks in the weather. It rained almost all day. Tyler drove us around allowing us to to see the sights in-between raindrops. When Tyler thought there was a break in the clouds, he got us over to Volcano National Park. We had a... More
