Haley is so knowledgeable and upbeat! We had a wonderful custom half day tour all through Volcano Park. We learned about volcanos and Hawaiian history and customs while having a great set of hikes. We loved Haile's photo tips and tricks, too!

We had a great time exploring the Volcano National Park at the end of our Big Island trip. Hayley went above and beyond and taught us all about Hawaii and the land around. It really helped the trip come together. She gave us plenty of tips on where to visit if we were to come back the next day, or... More

Thanks to Akamai for a wonderful morning the day after Christmas. Haley provided us great information and answered all questions about our tour of the HVNP area prior to our arrival. We scheduled a morning tour, first stopping at the museum for a view. Although the weather wasn’t ideal (raining a lot this time of year), it wasn’t even a... More

We visited the Big Island on the Pride of America, we did not want to do the typical cruise shore excursion, so we went looking and found Akamai Tours, one of the best finds we had on our Hawaiian vacation. Tyler, our tour guide and co-owner, was wonderful. He was full of knowledge, he was our history teacher, our geology... More

My husband and I had a great time exploring Kilauea and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park with Akamai Adventures. It's hard to be informative and entertaining for 7+ hours but they managed it. We started at the HVNP Visitor Center and looked out over the large caldera, hiked a lava field to the edge of a small caldera, checked out the... More

I enjoyed my day with Akamai Tours. Our tour guide was Tyler and he was full of energy and history. We visited a waterfall, old lava ground, and attempted to see lava but it was too foggy (which was okay). He offered snacks, water, and jackets for me and my friends and family. I was interested the whole tour. I... More

After reading other glowing reviews, I decided to contact Haley about my trip to the Big Island. BEST. DECISION. EVER. Haley got in touch with me and asked all about our interests, timeframe as well as any limitations. Then, just before going to the big island, there was a hurricane off shore, and I called Haley, nervous about going. She... More

We were on a cruise and only had one day on the Big Island, so we wanted to cram in as much as possible. (Bonus 1: it was raining. Bonus 2: it was a Sunday). Hayley was fantastic from the get-go, working around the weather and generally keeping us dry while letting us see some of the main sights on... More

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
