What a great way to experience Hilo and the big island of Hawaii. Kea was waiting for us in the cruise terminal and greeted us warmly along with our fellow cruise passengers. Our tour began right on time in a very comfortable and spacious van. Kea was born on the big island so she was a fountain of interesting information everywhere we went. This tour was exactly what we had hoped for - only 8 passengers and plenty of time to enjoy all the interesting stops without ever being rushed. The van was equipped with a microphone so everyone could clearly hear everything being said.. We were very lucky to see the volcanic crater and lava flow in full sunlight as the Hawaiian islands had been experiencing a lot of cloudiness and rain during the 6 days we spent on our cruise to 5 ports of call. The included complementary lunch was also much appreciated, but a special treat that we will always remember is the incredible papaya that Kea brought from her garden to share with all of us. A perfectly ripe papaya is fabulous - something that is never found in a grocery store! Kea is a top notch tour guide. We highly recommend Island Wide Family Tours.
