Our party of 4 had a nice time with Ricky. He was very polite, with a nice greeting. A comfy new van, and plenty of room. We had many stops with plenty of time in between. At the Volcanoes National Park we had time to...More
We were 2 Australian couples looking for a tour organised by a local and Ricky did a fantastic job. His van is very comfortable and well maintained. He was easy to communicate with before our visit and he was exactly where he said he would...More
There were six couples and an active volcano! Ricky gave us a great tour of the Hilo area. We heard great stories of the island and had time to explore our many stops. He had many bottles of cool water and chips as promised. We...More
We have determined that taking a private tour is a much better way to see sights when making port stops with a cruise ship. Ricky's tour did not disappoint. As promised he met us in the cruise terminal in Hilo and we joined a group...More
After reading all the glowing reviews we decided that Ricky's Tours was the way to see a lot of Hilo in a short time.
The stops we made were - Hilo Waterfall & Volcano National Park as well as Banyan Drive, Liliuokalani Garden, Rainbow Falls...More
This was the first stop on our Princess Cruise. Looked at reviews quite a few months ahead and took a chance. Glad we did. They did not require a downpayment which amazed me. I received confirmation and everything went like clockwork. Ricky was waiting for...More
Ricky's tour of Hilo was one of the highlights of our trip to the Hawaiian Islands. Ricky is a nice guy who drives you in a pristine van and effortlessly narrates a tour of the main sights (Rainbow Falls, Volcano National Park, Lava Tube, nut...More
Loved our tour with Ricky to the Waterfalls and Volcano National Park. His vehicle is a clean touring van, giving everyone great views and comfortable seating. He knows the area and took us everywhere with wonderful explanations and great experiences. So much better than driving...More

Ricky's VOLCANO NP & WATERFALL TOUR! And this combination tour takes 6 to 6 1/2 hours. There were 2 Van loads that took Ricky's tour and he was a fantastic host and guide!. We started out with just a few and it grew until he agreed to see if he could obtain another Van for us. He prefers to limit the 15 passenger van to just 12 people, that way everyone has plenty of room and makes for a better tour!
In my opinion, you simply can't go wrong with Ricky's Tour! Please tell him HI from Just Mike!
Here is the itinerary for Ricky's Combination Tour.
HILO WATERFALL & VOLCANO NAT’L PARK TOUR
Rainbow Falls / Wailuku River
Mau Na Loa Macadamia Nut Co. / they have snack bar
Akatsuka Orchid Garden
Richardson Ocean Beach Park aka black sand beach
Kilauea Caldera/ Halemaumau Crater /overlook vent
Kilauea Iki Crater
Thurston Lava Tube; People don’t want to walk at lava tube normally wait in the van till the rest of the group comes back.
These itinerary are all short walk except Thurston Lava Tube takes 13 minutes of walking around the loop.

The tour was about 6 hours and worth every penny . Very reasonable and Ricky can answer all your questions . We did have an opportunity to have a light lunch on our own time which was perfectly fine with everyone. Ricky did bring us snacks during our stop at the volcanos park including ice cold bottled water. Our van was very clean and comfortable . We plan to do another tour with Ricky in 2019.
