My wife and I book private tours whenever possible for both the individual interaction with the guides as well as the convenience of not being beholden to the needs of large groups, so booking our full day tour with Wild Orchid was a no-brainer.
Lee is one of the most interesting and congenial guides I think we've ever had on our many vacations to all sorts of interesting places. While he's not a "native", he certainly is a local, and his dedication to and knowledge of the island was obvious from the start.
His experience running these tours was evident in the efficiency with which he was able to show us everything we were interested in - and more - without ever having the feeling of being rushed or simply shuffled from one thing to the next. It genuinely felt like we were just hanging out with him for the day while he showed us the sights.
I highly recommend Wild Orchid for any first time visitors to the Big Island.
