There is so much to see and do in the area and I had so little time - one full day - that I didn't want to waste it finding everything myself so signed up for a tour from Akamai Adventure Tours. Hayley is very experienced, having done this for years, also has lived and guided in Alaska. We got... More

I had the most special 2 days being around Big Island with Hayley Ford and that experience would not have been the same if I would have done this on my own. Her knowledge about the history of the Hawaiian Islands is impressive and the way she tells the stories is fascinating and very entertaining, I learned so much more... More

Hayley was a delight to work with. She gave us a wonderful tour of the volcano area and she was very knowledgeable about both the volcano and surrounding area as well as the history of hawaii. She worked with our family's needs and came prepared which I definitely appreciated.

If you're looking for tours on the Big Island, Akamai Adventures is a one stop shop! We took two tours with Hayley, the South Kona Tour and the Volcano National Park Tour. Both tours totally exceeded our expectations and we experienced things we would have never been able to find ourselves. Hayley customized each tour for us based on our... More

We contacted Hayley at short notice and were not sure what we wanted to do. She looked at our family makeup and recommended the most suitable things based on what we wanted to see and do. Hayley is very knowledgeable and has a passion for life and whole heartedly believes in what she does. I had 3 kids and from... More

We took a great tour of Volcano National Park with Hayley with our kids over December break. Hayley was incredibly enthusiastic and knowledgeable -- all of us learned a great deal and my teens were engaged for the entire 7 hour tour. My 17 and 14 year olds flanked Hayley for much of the day so they could ask questions... More

We were picked up at 11 am in a nice, new van by Justin. There were 11 on the tour. Justin had us say where we were from, our name, last book we had read and what music we would want if stranded on an Island, so that broke the barrier and we all got along great. Justin told us... More

Although we are experienced travellers who like to do their own research and generally dislike tours, at least in a group, we knew that Hawaii Volcanoes National Park was beyond our expertise, so seeing the high ratings on TA for Tyler and Hayley's business, we booked them to help us get the most from our day in the park. We... More

We spent a wonderful 2 days with Hayley and her husband Tyler. One could not find a more knowledgeable couple. Anything and everything you want to know about Hawaii, the history, folklore and terrain Hayley and Tyler are experts. Hayley took us to see the surface lava flow to the ocean where we had a beautiful view of the hot... More
