A Recent Review of this tour

Our Hilo tour is five star all around. Joshua was born and raised on the island, knowledgeable in the way of a true native. He was courteous, punctual, took us to this great place for local food. His Mercedes van was spacious and spotless, more than enough room for our group of 8, and so easy to get in and out of. Highly recommend.
