Hilo, HI, United States

Aloha from Hilo Hawaii located on the Big Island of Hawaii.

My name is Gil and I'll be your guide.

My first experience to Hawaii was when my parents moved to the islands of Oahu and Kauai when I was a young child. That love for the islands started as a child searching the beaches for the glass balls used by fishermen that would float from Japan. We only lived in Hawaii for a year but I always had a desire to come back. I finally made it back to the islands with my wife and we both love the Big Island of Hawaii.

We have been showing visitors our island since 2010. It is wonderful to do tours to the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and see our guests amazed by the expanse of the Kilauea Caldera. It is wonderful to pass on knowledge that we have gained through our annual training with the geologists.

My goal is for you to not only learn about the volcano but to see some amazing sights and take some great photos along the way. I am happy to be your photographer whenever you would like to be in the picture.

My tours include picking up from the Hilo Cruise Port, Hilo Airport or Hilo Hotel. If you are in Kona or Waikoloa you may drive to Hilo and I can meet you to begin the tour.

I look forward to showing you the beauty of the Big Island of Hawaii.

A Recent Review of this guide

We really appreciated the opportunity to get "up close and personal" with the Kilauea crater. Watching the steam come out of the vents was awesome! Don't fool with Mother Nature. Also enjoyed the other photo stops along the way and the snacks and beverages provided.
