My love of living in the islands is apparent throughout the tours. Having been a resident for the last 15 years, I feel truly blessed to share this lifestyle, through the sights and flavors of the islands.
I fell in love with the island lifestyle and culture at the age of 10 when I was invited to a local family luau and tasted the wide variety of fruits and flavors here on the islands. I had never tasted anything so wonderful. And the sense of Family and community was amazing.
Everyone loves to visit Hawaii and on our island, being as large as it is, you have to drive to see all the beauty, sights and diversity. It becomes second nature to show friends and family these spectacular sights whenever you have guests. I love this island, I love people and I love the food so it was an easy transition into becoming a full time tour guide. I have been a private guide for over 12 years.
I hope everyone will experience a small glimpse into what it's like to be part of this beautiful world. My goal is to help others taste the Hawai'i Lifestyle and see the insider's view of life in Hawaii past the hotels, luaus, and restaurants.
A Recent Review of this guide
Lisa hit just the right tone of informative, informal, knowledgeable and light-hearted. While she obviously knew the Kailua-Kona area extremely well, if she didn't know the answer to something she said so....we loved the transparency. When several of our destinations proved to be closed for a holiday, Lisa improvised and still filled the 5 hours with great sights & content. Highly recommended.
