What makes Native Guide Hawaii different from the rest?
Native Guide Hawaii is not just
an Ecotour company; it is a means of gaining cultural awareness
and insights into Hawaii that you can only get from someone from
within the Hawaiian culture. Other tour companies may have Hawaiian
or “local” guides, but we are native Hawaiian owned
goal is to have each and every one of you come away from your
experience with a sense of having really participated in something
real and fulfilling. I don’t stick to any kind of rigid
itineraries or plans, if there is something interesting that
you want to do or see that is not on the schedule, we'll go!”
At Native Guide
Hawaii you are not a tourist – you are a participant.
Our scheduled tours
and hikes are easy to moderate.
