Big Island Tour Guide
If you give me your dates that you will be here, your interests, and your budget, I can help you plan your best ever trip to the Big Island of Hawaii!
Whether your budget is $10 or $1000, I can help you plan an exciting trip to suit your needs. I can be of virtual assistance only, helping with your itinerary, places to eat, where to go/explore, things to do, fun weekly events, finding the best (insert your favorite food or drink here) in town, show you how the locals live it up, or whatever you want to do on your vacation!
I can give you recommendations for any/every activity imaginable, as well as food and drink specialties and specials.
Didn't rent a car, or don't want to risk getting lost? I can chauffeur you around in my (older, but clean, comfortable, and extremely reliable) vehicle.
Training & Qualifications
I've lived on the island for over two years and have lived in several different areas of the island, each offering their own unique flavor of adventure (and food!).
I am a full-time teacher so I know how to explain the local environment. I'm also a part-time waitress and therefore know the service industry very well here. (I can tell you where to get the best burger, the best wings, the best mexican food, the best bloody mary, the best mimosa, the best margarita, the best mai tai, the best craft beer, and more).
Availability & Preferences
Evenings, some weekends, school breaks

About Lindsey Borg
I am a full time special education teacher and part time waitress. I like to be outside as much as possible, but when the Hilo rain prevents me from enjoying the sun, the sand, or the waves, I'll prob...ably be inside reading or creating. I love camping, hiking, swimming, snorkeling, and SUPing. I am trying to learn how to surf. I also enjoy cooking, baking, coloring, knitting, crocheting, and sewing. I was born in Savannah, Georgia and grew up in northern Connecticut, where I lived in Torrington, Litchfield, Bantam, Storrs, and Manchester. I relocated to the Big Island in 2014 and have fallen in love with the Hilo community. I have my bachelor of science in special education with a concentration in science and my master of arts in educational psychology, with a graduate certificate in positive behavior interventions and supports. I love teaching and think education can solve most of the world's problems, however I think our current educational systems are very broken. I have lots of ideas on how to fix them but am working on building my experience, network, and resources. For this reason I'm active with HSTA and am the Hilo representative of HYPE (Hawaii Young Professional Educators). I also currently run an after school gardening program, which is a learning experience for me just as much as it is for the children, but it's definitely a world of fun. My current life goals are to lose weight, get out of debt (even though I was on full academic scholarship for all of my undergraduate, and I attended a public state university, one year of graduate school has devastated me financially), get organized, and live a more minimal lifestyle. show moreOpen to other proposals
