Born and raised in Brazil, I started doing social work when I was 21 years old. First in the slums of Rio do Janeiro, then in the impoverished villages of Africa. Before making Hawaii my home, I spent seven years living and serving in Mozambique, Africa. I love to teach and help people world-wide. I have traveled in Asia and Europe as well, but have made Hawaii my home. Since Hawaii is my home I decided, "Why not be a tour guide?" As a tour guide, I can do my favorite things in life: driving, teaching, helping, and making friends! I then get to share the beautiful Island of Hawaii with my new friends!
Travelers love Kona because of its rich cultural history, luaus, breathtaking scenery and wonderful restaurants. The sun always shines in Kona!
Come with me to see the most amazing places on the Big Island! Watch the sunset above the clouds and gaze at a sea of stars at 9400 feet! Swim in hot ponds on the ocean edge before walking through the rain forest and swimming in its' hot ponds. Stand in awe on an active volcano and explore its' lava tubes and craters. I can also provide a customized tour. If you don't know what you want to see, leave the itinerary to me! I am extremely flexible and aim for you to have a wonderful time on this glorious island!
A Recent Review of this guide
What a fantastic tour! Adriano was a great guide. Every small question I had before the tour, he answered promptly. He picked us up on time and was very knowledgeable throughout the tour. He was also a hit with my kids, aged 11 and 10. We loved going to the summit of Mauna Kea with Adriano who went above and beyond, even changing a tyre at 14,000ft in record time so we didn't miss the sunset. Would highly recommend. Thank you
