My mom, my boyfriend and I went on a cruise to Hawaii. The tours that were offered on the ship were totally not worth it (for the price and the places they would bring you to.) Upon arriving the Hilo port of call, we venture out to the pier and found this tour operated by Lee. He took 3 of us to the customized tours, going to places that normal big tour buses cannot get to. He took us to many places, but just to name a few: He took us to see waterfall, then another waterfall right by the ocean where you would see dramatic waves, also brought us to the volcano crater to see the active volcano... and he brought us deep into the lava tube where most tourists wouldn't venture into (the part where there's no light and he provided us with flashlight), Japanese garden, some vista points on tiny road where locals like to go surf (and we took great pictures here), . He also stopped by the Macadamia nut farm, the Hilo coffee place, big island chocolate company, etc. The tour guide is very knowledgeable and passionate about the island, it's culture and people. Our tour last the whole day and we were got back to the ship just 30 minutes before it departs! It was an excellent private tour and I would highly recommend it to anyone who will be visiting Hilo!
