Experience the beauty, uniqueness, and magic of this area


You will experience the beauty & magic of this side/part of the Big Island, why it unique in the Hawaiian chain, and why I have chosen to live here. You will learn a lot about Hawaiian history, culture, the language, trees, fruits, flowers, birds, animals, and more. There will be many great photo ops. It will be a very educational, informative, interesting, fun, and memorable tour that you will remember & cherish the rest of your life.

Itinerary

As you'll see in the 6 hr tour, it starts in Hilo with the choices there and then moves either South to the Puna District and/or the Volcano Nation Park or up the Hamakua Coast and on to Waimea town in the Parker Ranch. Swimming and/or snorkeling is an option for those that enjoy that. The additional 2 hours is to extend either the distance covered, things seen & done, or just to spend a more time at the places and activities you enjoy the most.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: I'll pick you up where ever you're at in the Hilo area, i.e. the Cruise Ship dock, your hotel, the airport or on out to the Pahoa/Puna District area where I live.

End location: I'll either drop you off where I picked you up or at an alternative spot that you specify.

Duration: 8 hours

A Recent Review of this tour

From the first email communication ahead of the tour it was clear Laurence had a passion for all things Hawaiian but wow what a treat. His knowledge, passion and excitement was infectious. We asked for local food options and he more than delivered. Took us to one of his favorite snorkeling spots, just gorgeous. Oh and the Botanical Gardens were a site to behold. When you think about the concept of a tour given by locals, this day more then fit the bill. We can't forget how awesome he was with our 7 yr old
