This tour is an outstanding value. The last time that we visited the Big Island, we did a "self-guided" tour. On the recommendation of a friend, we invested in a professionally guided tour and what a difference it made. Our guide Tyler was a perfect fit for us. With two children aged 12 and 15, Tyler gave us the perfect combination of science, nature, and Hawaiian culture (they call it "talking story"). Both kids literally had a ball which isn't always easy with those particular age ranges. As noted in other reviews, we asked about a million questions and Tyler had answers for all of them - and made it interesting for the entire family listening to him. We saw and experienced so many different aspects of the park that we never would have seen. Tyler gave great advice and yet customized the experience to our interests and circumstances. Given the amount of time and personal attention we received, it was a bargain. We never felt rushed and Tyler's easy-going attitude and passion for science made it an unforgettable experience for the entire family. We would highly recommend Akamai to anyone.
