“Our visit to Hilo a day off the cruise ship”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

Mr. Bob Sullivan was awesome. Full of information about the places we visited, and a very pleasant man. He provided us with local food and drinks as we made our way through the day.
I could easily have repeated the whole experience again the next day.

He met us as our ship arrived at a pre-arranged meeting place at the port in Hilo.

I would recomend this tour to anyone.

We went swimming with the turtles, to a coffee plantation, rainbow falls as well as the volcano.

“Hilo tour”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Wonderful company and a great tour. He took us to all the basic tourist places and made sure that we arrived back at the ship in plenty of time. I highly recommend the company.

“Everything you want in a one day tour of Hilo”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Originally Robert was not our first choice of tour operators. When another tour group told us they were booked up, they recommended Robert - and are we glad they did. Robert was responsive prior to us arriving and gave us lots of options. We were a group of four and he combined us with one other couple, extended our tour and did not charge extra. I would venture that we saw about everything one can see in a single day in Hilo. Robert took us to waterfalls, volcanos, black sand beaches to see turtles and everything in between. He was incredibly knowledgable on the history, the local vegetation and the food of area. He stopped at a great, local lunch spot that we never would have stopped at otherwise. We had a great day with Robert and the price was reasonable compared to what other companies charge for private tours. In fact, it was actually cheaper per head than if we had done an excursion through our cruise ship.

“What a Top Tour”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

On May 11th, 2013, my wife and I took this tour with Robert and two other couples. We were kept well informed had a great day and were even supplied with food and a beer even. This would have to be one of the best tours that we have been on. We fully recommend Robert and his company. Great value too.

“Hawaii 50 Ozzie group”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

Our day with Robert was exceptional. He looked after us and kept us entertained during our time with him. He explained both natural and historical things fully and was a great source of information. He made sure we enjoyed local foods and saw the best of the island. We fully recommend his tours.
