A Recent Review of this tour

Rob met us as predetermined and we began our tour. He was very helpful in answering any questions we had. What we particularly enjoyed was going places that the bigger tour buses would not have been able to navigate. There was a nice flow of conversation, but never to the point that we were tired of hearing about the region. Would definitely recommend Rob to anyone needing assistance in seeing Hilo. We also appreciated the free water and snacks he provided since the weather was warmer than usual.
