Scott is an excellent guide, and we had a great time on the volcano tour. We learnt so much about Hawaii, and got some great photos of lava formations. The day was paced well - lots to see but we never felt rushed. Coffee, turtles, sweet bread, lava - this tour has something for everyone, and we really enjoyed Scott's company.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mahalo, Sally, for the great review! So glad to hear you enjoyed your tour of Volcanoes National Park...it really is a special place. You and your husband were a joy to spend the day with. Aloha

Scott is definitely 5 star. He patiently answered our many questions as we explored the Big Island. The terrain was quite diverse from the hilly and mountainous grassy knolls to the volcanic landscape in the national park. My wife and I definitely recommend Scott for a private tour of the Big Island.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mahalo, Roger, for the great review! It's always so rewarding knowing my guests enjoyed their time on the Big Island. Wishing you all the best! Aloha

Scott was awesome! He is very friendly, knowledgeable and immediately put us at ease. Scott has thorough knowledge of the sites themselves but also details of the island (where to get the best Huli Huli chicken and cinnamon rolls). This was a wonderful, fun, extremely informative tour for us! Thank you Scott for making it a truly great experience for us!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mahalo, Ilan, for making it a great time for me too! You and your family are wonderful. Wishing you many more safe travels. Aloha

Our first day with Scott was really neat. We covered a lot of territory and saw locations and sights that we would not have located by ourselves. We hiked off the beaten path a few times to places only local people would know about that were spectacular and well worth visiting. Scott knew what to expect at the establishments we stopped at or thought of stopping at, and took the time to explain about them, which made our choices easier. Scott was upbeat and an enjoyable person to be with.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aloha Joyce and thank you again for another great review! It's so much fun spending time with guests like you. And, it's always a treat for me to be able to show those special places. Wishing you many more safe travels!

Greatest tour ever!!! Scott was knowledgeable and a lot of fun. He took us to places we wanted to visit and then supplemented with other areas he thought we would enjoy. Wish we had used him on Hilo as well as Kona.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mahalo, Sarah, for the kind words! It was definitely a tour to remember. Now be a trooper and try some of that SPAM. :-)

The whole family really appreciated how easy going and friendly Scott was.we also really appreciated his wise counsel and decisions on where we should go and what we should do.

Scott was wonderful - he showed us the interesting things that we may not have known about and he took us where we wanted to go. He's very knowledgeable about the island, enthusiastic and excited to show the island's beauty.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mahalo, Diane for the great review. Just so you know, there's nothing wrong with booking your convention at the same venue again. :) Aloha and Mahalo!

A big MAHALO to Scott W! What an Amazing day! Seemed like the tour -- locations, timing, and conversation --- was tailor-made for us: Kona coffee farm, Bakery, Volcano Nat'l Park, Lava tube, Shave ice, and Scott's sparkling wit & wisdom. Five (5) stars indeed, top honors. Want to plan a return trip, just to take his tour again! -- Lisa Z. & Nicole L.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aloha Lisa & Nicole, Thank you for the great review! We certainly covered a lot of ground on that wonderful day and I'm so glad to hear you enjoyed yourselves as much as I did. Yes, you need to come back so I can show you more goodies! Mahalo nui loa, Scott

Best private tour that we have ever had. Scott was very knowledgeable about the island and communicated in a fun, informative manner. We had him for a full day and were able to see everything we had planned in advance and more! We were a group of six with two kids ages 7 and 9. This was not the first time they had traveled and after the tour they could not stop talking about how much fun they had. I would highly recommend that anyone considering a tour on the Island of Hawaii use Scott!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aloha Steve! I'm so glad to hear you and the gang enjoyed your time exploring the island. The scenery certainly is spectacular! All the best and many safe travels back to the islands! Mahalo, Scott

Awesome,informative,marvelous.....that explains both the guide, Scott,and the tour! We learned an enormous amount about the volcano and lava, but also the area as we drove to the volcano. Would highly recommend Scott

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aloha Joan and Marshall. Thank you so much for the kind words. I certainly had a wonderful time with you, especially at Hawaiian Style Cafe! I'm still thinking of the breakfast! The excitement you showed while seeing the sights makes it so much fun for me as a guide. All the best. Scott
