A Recent Review of this tour

Jodi was exceptional and we would highly recommend her. This tour is well thought out, yet is very flexible to accommodate any changes. Jodi's local expertise allowed our tour to enjoy what Hilo has to offer without dealing with large crowds. We were a group of 8 and were all very comfortable in her Mercedes vehicle which not only made for a comfortable ride, but allowed for great views on drive alongs. If you are considering booking a tour in Hilo, book Jodi early so that you are not disappointed.
