Excellent and fun tour. DeWaine changed the itinerary to meet our interests. It was a very scenic trip driving and DeWaine provided interesting stories about the Big Island and Hawaiian culture along the way. We made a lot of stops along the way to hike through lava tubes, see waterfalls and other interesting places. Communication with DeWaine to coordinate the trip was thorough and prompt. He also provided some recommendations on things to do.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aloha! I takes much more than a good guide to make a successful tour. More importantly, it take engaged, interested, and fun participants willing to 'go with the flow', and you provided that in spades! Mahalo nui loa for providing me with a great day! Aloha!

DeWaine made this tour the highlight of our trip. He communicated via e-mail several times after booking to clarify our expectation. He clearly communicate meeting time and location and offered an excellent tour of the area. He was quite knowledgeable about history, geology and fauna. He took us to several out-of-the-way places that would not have been included in other tours. I highly recommend him. This was my first experience with ToursByLocals, and will certainly turn to them in the future.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aloha Keith and mahalo for your kind words! I too, had a really fun day with you folks! You know how to make it a great time for the guide as well! Well done! I hope that your crossing was also fun and uneventful. Look me up the next time you all come over and we'll go north side of island! Aloha!
