Just weeks before our trip to Hawaii, our tour guide for the big island closed operations. In our search for a replacement we came across Tours by Locals and Laurence. He agreed to be our tour guide on short notice. Laurence is the consummate tour guide. He took us to what we wanted to see and more. His knowledge about the island is outstanding. Since it was just us and Laurence, we were able to go places where the big tour companies can't. We recommend him highly.
