    Amazing sites
    Michelle_S, May 2023
    Enjoyed the history/narration and many side trips to Liliuokalani Park, Big Island Candies, Rainbow Falls, but the highlight was Volcanoes National Park. The Kaluapele crater was amazing. I just wished we had a sunnier day! Also was cool to see the vents and very cool to walk through the lava tube. A little crowded when we walked through, but what an amazing natural formation! Don't book this trip for the lunch though - gas station sandwich left much to be desired!
    Good tour

    Our tour guide auntie Karen was great! We saw much more than we would have seen in a self guided tour. Would recommend this tour as it is informative, fun and a good value.

    Loved seeing the Volcano crater, laba tube and rainbow falls. This tour was very informative. Aunt Karen our tour guide was great
    Little too long
    Juan_R, Mar 2023
    The start of tour through gardens could be skipped to give more time at the state park. Less personal details from the guide and more natural history.
    Response from Host, Mar 2023
    Sounds like you wanted to go on our private tour where you can decide how long and what you want to see. All the places that are listed for enjoyment of all others. Our private tour would have fit your needs very well. Please choose private tour for just for your group. We do offer private tours on all islands.

    Volcano View
    Randy_L, Feb 2023
    The chance to get a closer view of the volcano crater. We could see the lava bubbling up and actually hear the sound that it was making.
    Reene_D, Jan 2023

    Jeff_G, Jan 2023
    The excursion was great but our tour guide, Auntie Karen, was absolutely outstanding. We had so much fun with her and appreciated her "thingys" along the way. The stops were great, the ride was comfortable, the lunch was a nice treat, and we would highly recommend this excursion to anyone. Fingers crossed you get Auntie Karen like we did:)

    Volcanoes NP Tour
    Kathy_W, Nov 2022
    Great tour; the bus was very old! Chen was a good guide! Volcanoes NP was our 56th national park to visit. Each is amazingly unique!
    Great excursion!
    Maria_M, Oct 2022
    Mike was awesome! Had a wonderful day with many stops. Mike took us to the best locations & gave us plenty of time to see the different locations. He picked us up & dropped us off on time. Overall a great excursion!
    Raphael_W, Oct 2022
    Friendly people and good weather. Tour guide was very kind and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this tour. Thank you 😊
    Nice but not worth it to me.
    Marisa_A, Aug 2022
    It was a nice experience but I wish I would have to went to Maui instead. Also, suggest the tour not dropping people off at odd times during the tour because it interrupts the experience for others. If someone has to be back at airport or hotel at a particular time they should take a taxi/uber. Because the time it takes the tour guide/driver to drop them off it takes away from the tour for everyone else.
