I wish I booked private tours instead of the cruise shore excursions. Scott was excellent. He's very knowledgeable and was able to do everything in the little time we had.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aloha Lisa, Thank you for the great review! It was great spending a few hours with you and your husband. Come back and see us again! Mahalo

We both enjoyed this tour. The waterfalls are beautiful! We enjoyed everything about Hilo. Scott is an excellent guide and we were glad we met him on our first day in Hilo. Loved seeing the green turtles, too. We highly recommend Scott. He is a great guide and made this tour very enjoyable!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mahalo, Sylvia. I had a great time with you as well! All the best.

Great tour - Scott was great and I got to see the REAL Hawaii - not all beaches and palm trees, but just as beautiful. His vehicle was clean and well maintained and I felt very secure with his driving and knowledge of the roads. Got to see multiple waterfalls and tidal pools and places I didn't even know about! Highly recommended!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mahalo, Anne, for the great review. It sure was a great time showing you some spectacular sights! Wishing you many more safe travels. Aloha!

We toured the southeastern part of the Big Island and went into areas in Pahoa that were threatened by the lava flows. We also saw some amazing vistas along the coastline that were dramatically changed from the lava flows of the 1990's. Since my husband is a really good amateur photographer, Scott made sure to take us to places that had really superior photo ops.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mahalo, Lili, for another great review! You'll need to come back soon so I can show you more wonderful areas. Aloha!

I would rate our tour with Scott a STRONG Five (5) Stars. He earned every star!! Scott met my husband and me at the pier in Hilo, our ship with Holland America Cruise Line had docked in Hilo. Our tour was on Tuesday November 25, 2014. Scott treated us to some fabulous sights in and around Hilo, he lives there and his personal pride and love for his area was much in evident. Scott was very courteous to my husband and myself, we are both over 70 years of age. The tour was definitely a value for our $.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mahalo, Frankie for the great review. Hope to see you again in the near future!

Had a wonderful day with Scott. Being a private tour (2 people) meant we could tailor the tour to our particular interests, and to change/add to the itinerary on 'the run'. Time frame was completely open and determined by the level of interest we had in each site/activity. Having ascertained that we were a bit 'adventurous', Scott took us a bit off 'the beaten track'. A friendly and accommodating guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mahalo, Lorna for taking the time to write a review. All the best, Aloha

Our tour and our guide, Scott, were amazing!! Scott was very knowledge about the island and he really did a fantastic job making sure we enjoyed our tour. We were in Hilo only for 1 day (we were on a cruise ship and stopped at 5 different ports). Hilo was our favorite island AND our favorite tour of all 5 ports we stopped at. I know this is in part because of Scott. I would definitely recommend Toursbylocals and Scott to anyone. FANTASTIC!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mahalo, Luanne, for the great review! It certainly was a day to remember! I thoroughly enjoyed sharing some wonderful sights with you. Wishing you many more safe travels. Aloha, Scott

Scott was absolutely outstanding! He met us at the airport, realized we might be hungry and waited for us to woof down some fast food. Then he took us to an amazing lava field with a green sand beach. We were the only ones as far as the eye could see! Next he took us on a cave tour to a hidden lava tube, for which he supplied the headlamps and the rest of the gear. He then took us to the top of Mauna Kea in a private spot where we watched the sunset. Amazing! Scott is GREAT!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aloha Steven, Mahalo for the great review. I'm so glad you and your family had a great time, as I did too! Aloha, Scott

Scott was once again the perfect tour guide! He took us to out of the way places most people never know about much less get to spend time in. He showed us the real side of Hawaii's waterfalls, beaches, and other interesting sites and there were no crowds. He is entertaining and informative while driving too which is a big plus. We will use him every time we visit the Big Island. Outstanding!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mahalo Tami for another great review! It was so much fun spending another day with you and David, especially with the unexpected addition. :-) All the best and many safe travels. Aloha, Scott

Exceeded our expectations. Cost more than cruise ship tours, but worth every penny. Scott was an outstanding representative to introduce us to Tours by Locals. Certainly do recommend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aloha Don! Thanks so much for the great review. I'm so glad you enjoyed your time seeing some of Hilo's wonderful scenery. All the best. Mahalo, Scott
