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

Tyler was awesome during our trek through across lava fields and the climb to the top of the craters created from previous eruptions. No visible lava flowing when we went so we were a little disappointed at that, but Pele and Tyler made up for the lack of visible flow. Hayley was great in setting up our tour, always a... More

Hayley was a terrific guide - so friendly & knowledgeable. Loved every piece of it from the special hike in Volcanoes National Park to jumping off the tower at Coconut Island. If you want to feel like you're with family while exploring a unique piece of the planet this is your tour company.

My husband and I traveled to the Big Island on September 24, 2014 and the Volcano National Park was on the top of the list of "must dos" on the island. I researched and compared a few different tour options and selected Akamai for several reasons. First, in working with Hayley during the inquiry process I could tell that they... More

We were looking for a tour that could accommodate our family of 7, ages 7-78. Beginning with our initial inquiry, Akamai worked with us to design a day - long tour that met all of our varied needs, abilities and interests. Tyler and Haley were always responsive to our emails, even after a hurricane hit the Big Island, affecting communications... More

We had the pleasure of having Hayley as our guide. Not only did we get a complete/private tour of the Volcano National Park but Hayley took us to places the large tour companies either can't or will not go. She also made sure we timed our stops to miss the large groups in the must see but busy areas. This... More

As this was our first visit to the Big Island, we had many choices of what to do. For us it was no question what we wanted to do first and that was a visit to The Volcano National Park. We were given the name of Akamai by the folks at the hotel. Called them up, booked the trip via... More

We had an outstanding night tour of Kilauea with Tyler! Hayley was SUPER easy to communicate with and was very helpful with not only our reservations, but with recommendations of places to go/eat/shop. My daughter is gluten-free, so not the easiest to shop for, but Hayley had some great recommendations and Tyler brought snacks she could eat on the hike... More
