Although we are experienced travellers who like to do their own research and generally dislike tours, at least in a group, we knew that Hawaii Volcanoes National Park was beyond our expertise, so seeing the high ratings on TA for Tyler and Hayley's business, we booked them to help us get the most from our day in the park. We... More

We spent a wonderful 2 days with Hayley and her husband Tyler. One could not find a more knowledgeable couple. Anything and everything you want to know about Hawaii, the history, folklore and terrain Hayley and Tyler are experts. Hayley took us to see the surface lava flow to the ocean where we had a beautiful view of the hot... More

Day 1 was to be spent in Kona with SUP, snorkeling, site seeing and travel to Hilo. Despite the weather and surf not cooperating with our original plans, Hayley's expertise shined as she improvised a fabulous day of snorkeling, breathtaking views for our picnic lunch, waterfalls and culture and history as we travelled to Hilo. Day 2 is where Hayley's... More

My husband and I spent a wonderful day with Hayley Ford of Akamai Adventure Tours in the Volcanoes National Park and Hilo, Hawaii. I cannot recommend Hayley more highly. She is a wealth of information, and does so in a delightful 'story' format which is educational and steeped in Hawaiian history and lore. Hayley is a fascinating combination of historian,... More

We absolutely loved this tour! Hayley did an amazing job of really giving us all (ranging in age from 9-78) a much better understanding of the park than we could have ever gotten on our own. She was so accommodating with the older folks who didn't want to do as much walking and made sure everyone was as comfortable as... More

Hayley created a perfect day for me, my kids and my neices! We had a limited amount of time and she took into consideration our interests to create a wonderful day for us. Plus she provided delicious snacks that all the kids enjoyed (which is hard to do with this group!). She was very knowledgeable of the whole Hilo area... More

Fascinating! Tyler took us on a 3 mile hike to show us different lava flows, steam still coming off the crater, deep crevasses in the earth, and how the rain forest is slowly reclaiming the land. We ended at sunset to see the steam from the active volcano glowing from the hot lava below. Safety and comfort were Tyler's first... More
