Our family had a great time with Lee from Wild Orchid on a tour of Volcanos National Park. He was knowledgeable about Hawaii, showed us many differnt parts of the park we might not have seen on our own, and he was fun to spend an entire day with. We'd recommend Lee

I am not in the habit of writing reviews but in this instance, I feel compelled to do so! During our recent visit to Hawaii, we (6 of us ) made a day trip to the Big Island from Oahu. We had booked a half day tour with Wild Orchids and we are glad that we did so. Mr Lee,... More

We (family affair 6 of us from 18 to 80) were flying in for the day from Maui. Using TripAdvisor we found Wild Orchid Tours and Lee.

Best way to experience the island. Lee is very, courteous and professional. This is perfect tour because it's personalized to whatever you want. No loading & unloading with the mass quantities on a typical bus tour. With Lee you see Hilo from a local's perspective and get to see things you wouldn't typically see. Surfing, waterfalls, black sand beaches, volcanos... More

We had a limited amount of time in Hawaii and wanted to see all we could. We decided to go on a private tour of the volcanos. We ended up having one of the best days of the trip.

Lee is the very definition of the modern Renaissance Man. His knowledge of and respect for the culture, mythology, and history of the Hawaiian Islands is unparalleled. We were so impressed.
