I recommend to let Akamai to take care of your trip. Tyler saved my day when another tour was cancelled. His rich knowledge of everything about Hawaii, starting with geology and ending with energy production, enriched all the amazing places. Remote lava tube, abandoned smoking volcano and especially incredible Mauna Kea night sky were among the most interesting features I... More

We booked very late, the evening tour of the Volcano, we had not realised the scale of the area and how you need an expert guide to help you navigate the area to get the best out of visit. Communication was excellent and this instills you with confidence before you arrive. We were given very clear instructions on what to... More

We had a great day with Tyler touring VNP. He was personable, knowledgeable, flexible, and geared our visit perfectly for our family of five. Without a doubt we can say that we would not have experienced the park the same way without his guidance. Not only in leading us safely along a less crowded trail that we would never have... More

We spent the day with Haley exploring Hilo and the surrounding area. She was fun, flexible, told great stories about Hawaii and its history and legends, and she was prepared for any little emergency that came up- at different times during the day we needed eye drops and a bandaid, and she instantly had both available. She made the tour... More

My 16 year old daughter exclaimed, "Tyler made the Volcano park tour come alive for me. He spent 7 hours with our family and the tour flew by because he made it so interesting!" We felt like a family friend guided us through Volcano National Park. Tyler had an in depth knowledge of Hawaiian mythology, history, geology, and botany. He... More

Tyler met us at our hotel and gave us an excellent tour of the whole park. We went on a fabulous (easy) hike up to the top of the crater of Mauna Ulu. He was great with our kids (Ages 10-15), and he knew everything there was to know about the Volcano Park. He loves what he does and that... More

My family of 4 took a Volcano Tour with Hayley in May 2015. My family had never booked a private tour before, now I don't think we will ever want to go with a large group again. Hayley was so personable, right from the start. I had many apprehensions since we were including our children in the tour and I... More

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. I am not very sure footed and Tyler customized the tour for my husband and me. It was a fantastic and memorial day. I don't think that... More
