Meet Kevin


Name: Kevin Hasting

Hometown: I have considered Hilo home since the day I arrived. I grew up near Omaha, NE.

What brought you to the Big Island? I have an amazing wife whose talents and hard work made our move possible.

What is your favorite thing about being a tour guide? Every single time I go on tour (I don’t consider it work), I get to meet and get to know people from all over the world. It is an honor for those celebrating honeymoons, anniversaries, birthdays, retirements – many which have saved their entire lives for their dream vacations – to choose to spend their day with me.

What do you like best about Kailani Tours Hawaii? I worked in fine dining prior to moving to Hawaii. Kailani Tours is THE fine dining of tours on The Big Island.

What other things do you enjoy doing? I enjoy exploring everything this island has to offer with my wife and daughter… and baseball, baseball, baseball!

Give us a quote you live your life by – “Enthusiasm is the mother of effort, and without it nothing great was ever achieved.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson. Or, as Coach John McGill at Platteview HS always put it, “Nothing great was ever done without enthusiasm!”
