Robert Sullivan greeted us and led us on a full day of exploration and wonder. It was a flexible schedule which allowed for a variety of adventures on this beautiful island. It was a great way for our two couples to learn and experience a day on the Big Island.

We spent the BEST day on the Big Island of Hawaii with Robert of Kamaaina tours last Friday, spending 12 adventurous & educational hours with him. Robert picked up at the airport on the Kona side and showed us some of the main sites before driving toward the Hilo side and experiencing the best of that side. He is very... More

Hands down I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Robert was willing to accommodate our request to see as much of the island as we had time for. We were able to see the lava fields, black sand beach, a swimming area with turtles and Rainbow Falls (all on our list of must see events). None of the cruise... More

I booked a tour for my son and I since we didn't really have time to research and make plans when I made the last minute decision to spend a day of our trip on the Big Island to see the volcanoes. It worked out perfectly. Robert picked us up from the airport when we landed and took us to... More

There were a few hiccups with Robert. First he could not pick us up at the pier as promised. Security would not let him through the gate because his permits were outdated. It was a big problem for my group since it was raining, and a bigger problem for me since I walk with a cane. We had to meet... More

Aloha Rita, Thank you for the constructive criticism. I am always trying to improve my services. I have already responded in a personal email, but am not sure if you've received it. I was a half hour early to pick you up at the pier. Security had informed me that my harbor parking permit had expired, and needed to be... More

Robert met us at the airport and asked what was most important for us to see. We headed to Kalapana, where he drove us as close as he could so we could hike to see where the lava is entering the ocean. Before we left, he offered cold water for the hike and sunscreen, as well as snacks like apple... More

Robert picked us up at the cruise ship pier ready to get us started on an exciting tour of Hilo. He was very knowledgeable and sincere about the many amazing sights we were about to see. He was very accommodating with beverages and snacks (loved the different varieties of Maui and Taro chips). Black sand beaches, Volcanoes National Park, Halema... More

Robert was great and attentive to our every need. Despite not being from Hawaii, he was very knowledgeable about the island and provided lots of details on culture and history. I felt we saw more in the 8 hours with him than we would have seen in 3 days.....had we tried to do this on our own. We snorkelled, swam... More

This was an excellent way to see the Hilo area. Robert, our tour guide did an outstanding job showing us a lava tube we could walk in and the museum overlooking the crater volcano. Snacks and drinks were provided and included with the tour price. An overall great day.
