  Just like the previous few reviews, we too were on a cruise and booked a custom tour with Big Island Aina Tours as a way for us to see Hilo for the day. I found this tour company here on trip advisor and decided to email them as they were one of the top rated companies. Right from the beginning, correspondence with Gil was professional and extremely helpful so I posted this on Cruise Critic to get other cruisers to join us on the tour. Tina picked up our group of 6 from the dock and we enjoyed a wonderful day. The best part is we felt like we did and saw a lot but at a very relaxed and comfortable pace. We started out at the Rainbow Falls lookout and then made our way to the macademia nut visitor centre followed by the Hilo Coffee Mill and then Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Inside the park, we saw the Kilauea Iki volcano and walked through the Thurston Lava Tube and saw some steam vents. Next, we enjoyed lunch at a winery where some did wine tasting while others relaxed and ate. Lastly, we visited the Black Sand Beach before heading back to the docks. All in all, it was a very successful day with a very knowledgeable tour guide. On the way to different sites, Tina also offered us chocolate covered macademia nuts and fresh pineapples!

  Hi Gil and Tina...thanks for a wonderful day in Hilo, we really enjoyed our tour with you, Gil, in spite of the rain that didn't co-operate at all!! You took us to see so many beautiful things, and you were so nice and friendly, we were very happy that we had booked our day with you.

  We did the Private Circle Island Tour with Gil last November. Gil was an excellent guide and it was so great not having to worry about driving around to all the sites ourselves. The Volcano National Park and the Punalu'u Black Sand Beach were the highlights for us. Thank you Gil for a wonderful day and it was lovely bumping into Tina at the Macadamian Nut Factory.

  Big thanks to Gil for the wonderful time! He was very flexible and accommodating, making this the highlight of our trip! My kids (12, 9, & 5) say this tour was their favorite! With Gil as our driver, it was less like a tour and more like a friend showing us around! Highly recommend!

  Gil - Thanks for the great tour on 10/29/12. We came off the Golden Princess and had a great time touring with you. The sights were magnificent including the Volcano NP, the numerous turtles at Black Sands Beach and the nice walk we took to the lava tube. You are a great tour guide and would highly recommend visitors to the Big Island spending their day with you. Thanks Again,
Mike

  Gil, I wanted to take the time to say "thank you" for such an amazing tour you gave us during our stay on the Big Island. Our kids are still talking about the Macadamian nut factory, and the hikes through the lava fields out to the petroglyphs! I know these are memories that we will have for many years to come. I can say that we saw nearly everything one should see when one visits the Big Island, thanks to you. We will never forget the sea turtles or the sea cliff, and the lava flow at night was spectacular. Not having to worry about planning out the day ourselves, or navigating, made the day so much more enjoyable for us, not to mention the personal touches such as the cut up pineapple, Velcro fruit, jackets and umbrellas!
Thank you for your patience with our 7 and 8yr old children. It was a long day, but we know we enjoyed every minute of it. Mahalo!

  We organized a full day Big Island volcano tour with Gil. We had a group of 6 people. Gil arrived at a pre-arranged time and was very courteous, pleasant and knowledgeable as our tour guide for the day. The advantage was that it was a fully personalized tour and we chose exactly what we wanted to do on that day. He planned the trip well so that we would be at the crater by dusk to see the night glow. We were interested in seeing Punaluíu Black Sand Beach (which isnít listed on their website as an option when waiting at Volcanoes National park until dusk) but Gil was kind enough to do about an extra hour of driving to take us there. He was even prepared with rain jackets for everyone (which we didn't bring) when it started raining during the tour. He had water bottles, fruits and chocolates for us on the way. Definitely recommend Gil for a personalized group tour. Thanks Gil!
