Rob was a fantastic guide! He went above and beyond to show us what we wanted to see when we were in Hilo for a short day. He was incredibly knowledgeable of the island, he knew exactly where to go and the quickest way to get there...He took us to basically everything we wanted to see in the short time we had including Volcanoes National Park! He showed us a good majority of the park that we could tell most guides don't take you to. Was incredible! Book a tour with Rob...you will not be disappointed!

We a group of 16 people booked the Hilo Tour and Shore Excursion from Rob and his wife Jodi. Excellent tour we enjoyed every minute. They both are great guides, very professional, very informative, very interesting, and caring, they also provided excellent photography services with free download. We learned so much from them about volcano eruptions in Big Island, they had first hand knowledge since they live in Volcano National Park. In addition we also visited Rainbow Falls, coffee farm, and beach..

Wonderful tour with Rob! He provided a fantastic level of information, and did a great job making it accessible for our kids (10 and 7) so they could understand and enjoy the tour too. We've taken tours of the volcano and island previously and this is the best tour we've had! Thanks again!

Date: Dec 22/19

This tour was extremely disappointing compared to all the other Tours by Locals we have taken in other parts of the world. It was extremely over priced in that he added little value to what we could have just done on our own. We wanted group pictures of our party of 5 but he said oh I've got this you can get the pictures from a website I will send you (which was a little confusing). Other TbL guides we have had just take pictures of our group with our cameras.

Because the sea was rough, our plans needed to be switched because we came into Hilo a day early. Rob was full of knowledge and was willing to work something out. We saw everything we hoped to see. Very respectful to all passengers. Thank you Rob for treating us so well.

Again, we were so happy to be able to see black sand, green sand AND the painted church. His willingness to please us made the two days with him well worth the time spent finding this awesome guide.

5.5 out of 5 ⭐️. Our group of 10 booked by Linda Ng truly enjoyed the experience as you were extremely knowledgeable in all facets of the Hawaiian Islands, it's history and geography, populations, shops, etc. We thought we were Reef fish & ocean mammal people learning as much as we can when we can during our travels & watching documentaries but you exceeded our knowledge & over any other locals we've encountered here. A sincere thank you & we highly recommend your company to anyone visiting here. Wanda LP

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mahalo Linda. A pleasure showing you and the Family the Big Island. Hope to see you all soon and you come back and stay on Island.

We enjoyed a second tour with Rob today. He again took care of our diverse group perfectly. He took us to an incredible snorkeling spot with amazing fish right off the beach and to an awesome turtle spotting cove. We travel a lot and taking a tour from a local is invaluable. Rob took us to places we would have never found on our own. I highly recommend!!

Our group of nine had a wonderful tour of Hilo by Rob. The accommodations were perfect. He had cold water and snacks for everyone including gluten free snacks. I highly recommend I highly recommend this tour guide Rob. He accommodated our group from a 2 year old to a grandma perfectly. He took us to wonderful places and knew the perfect times to go.

We had a fantastic tour guide who not only arranged the things we wanted todo but added many extras. He worked around weather conditions so that we had an optimum visit at each place. So much better than a big bus tour where the agenda is set. I have never used this site before but will check out local tours on my subsequent trips. Again a very excellent tour by an exceptional guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mahalo Judy TBL does check out all the guides they partner with. Unlike other tour booking engines. It was a pleasure showing you the Big Island. Mahalo Rob

Excellent tour. Rob was a wonderful guide and very knowledgeable of the history and places of interest. Our group received an excellent tour of waterfalls, volcano and different lava flows, steam vents, and orchid store. We even visited and he showed the little ones in our group several turtles on the beach.

Rob was fantastic. Very informative, knowledgeable and personable. We were a group of 8 adults plus 2 year old with a car seat. Vehicle very clean and comfortable; plenty of room to stretch out. Rob allowed us to customize the trip to our preferences and even had suggestions for additional stops. My husband left his credit card at one stop and Rob backtracked to get it, so we did not have to go thru hassle of canceling card while on vacation. Highly recommend using Rob as your tour guide. Photos a plus.

This tour was fantastic. Our tour guide, Rob, was extremely knowledgeable about the locations we visited. His personal knowledge & experience with the lava fields were very Informated. Rob was friendly, answered all our questions and took many pictures of us on the tour. His van was extremely comfortable for the 8 of us & would have been comfortable for 10 people. All of us on the tour had a great day, thanks to Rob

Thanks Rob, for a wonderful day.
