Our 8-hour tour with Laurence was relaxed but consistently interesting, especially in retrospect, given that some of the areas we visited were the site of volcanic eruptions the very next day. Laurence is an excellent guide--we recommend him highly.

Every moment with Laurence was informative and pleasant. He taught us names of trees and flowers, guided us through the through the rainforest and Akaka waterfalls, pointed out best spots for photos, explained the action of the volcano, explained the Hawaiian culture, introduced us to many Hawaiian words, and took us to eating spots with delicious, inexpensive food and drinks. Laurence is intelligent and genuinely nice. An excellent tour guide who gives above and beyond the call of duty.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mahalo nui loa for the great rating & comments, one of the best ever!

I had 2 tours earlier this month with Laurence. Both tours started from Hilo on The Big Island of Hawaii, and both were most enjoyable. Laurence is very knowledgeable and passionate about his tours and what he does, and it was a pleasure to discover we had a number of common interests.

We undertook a day tour with Laurence at Hilo Hawaii on Tuesday 29th November. We were very impressed with Laurence and had an absolutely wonderful day. He is very knowledgeable on the history of the area and we were fortunate to see areas not visited by the tourist coaches. We can highly recommend Laurence should you be visiting Hilo.

We arrived at Hilo via cruise ship and Laurence was waiting there at the terminal when we disembarked the ship. He made the day there absolutely fantastic. He was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. We were able to tailor the day to what we wanted to do/see and Laurence was able to help accomodate! (Even took us to one of the best Mexican restaurants on the island). If we went back we would definitely book with Tours By Locals again! Highly recommend!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mahalo nui Allanie for your great review and comments! All the best to you and your family.

This tour was fantastic!!! No words to explain how beautiful was this trip with Laurence. I keep thinking about him and I am so happy that I found this opportunity to visit the Big Island. We saw so much during our visit. Laurence is great! He is super friendly, knowledgeable, he went above and beyond to make us happy, feel comfortable and give us a special tour what we never forget and always remember.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Gabriella, thank you for the great rating and review...I got "Chicken Skin".

Laurence is a very competent tour guide. He went to places that were off the beaten track and we had very little interference from other tours. He led us around the island and we got to see great sites as well as great photographic opportunities. Being a local inhabitant of the island we also were treated to some very fine food for lunch. Laurence is personable and knowledgeable about the culture and geology of the Big Island. I highly recommend him as a tour guide and would not hesitate to book again

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Les, Mahalo for the great review! A hui hou, malama pono, & Aloha!
