Volcano tourReviewed by: Jerry, 2017/01/13
This tour is aimed towards people that just want to ride in a bus and take pictures. If you want to get out and explore this is not for you. We had a good time and we did learn about the park and valcanos but we wanted to do more on the ground and not just ride around in a bus all day. We had 15 to 30min tops at each stop and 45min each for Lunch and dinner.
We did get lucky and see the Lava in the lava lake during the day but the fog rolled in for the evening glow.
Our next trip to the park will be solo so we can explore more of the park and hike around.
What a great day!!Reviewed by: The Gilberts, 2016/07/28
YV was our guide. He was fantastic from the moment we met him till the end of our tour. I really can't say enough good about him. He was personable, kind, knowledgeable, and fun to be around. We all felt as if we were the most important people on the tour. He showed us amazing waterfalls, volcanoes, steam vents, lava tubes, new lava flows, beautiful black beaches, and even a little flowing lava! (our flight was too early to get a better look) YV went above and beyond to make sure our trip was memorable and fun. It was easy to tell he truly loves the land and has a heart for people that most simply do not. We cannot wait to make it back!! I would happily recommend this tour to anyone with an interest in volcanoes and who can do some moderate hiking. We wouldn't trade these memories for just about anything! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU YV!!!!!!!!!
Great Tour and great value!Reviewed by: Asia, 2016/05/01
The staff were very friendly and helpful. This volcanoes were worth the visit. We took book this trip from Maui. They arranged the package from Maui Airport to Hilo and the staff were there to pick us up right away to the tour bus. No stress and well informed!

Steve was a great tour guide for our volcano park tour. He knows his stuff. Places we ate at were great too. It was a long day but it was filled with very interesting facts and scenery. Seeing the crater glow at night was fantastic! Thanks for a wonderful day.

Unforgettable Mauna LoaReviewed by: SandyB, 2016/01/03
We took the Big Island tour from Maui. It was one full day devoted to checking out the Volcano National Park including a flight from Kahului to Hilo airport. Actually standing on the dry, now cool lava, seeing the place where the lava falling in to the ocean has made an interesting arch, checking out a black sand beach, seeing beautiful forests and waterfalls was gorgeous. But what stayed most in my mind was the red glow from the crater of the active volcano Mauna Loa at night: the last stop before we flew back at night. One improvement worth considering: it was a one day tour therefore some of the lunch and dinner break time allotted could be reduced to spend more time on sightseeing. But overall well organized and an unforgettable experience.

Volcano TourReviewed by: Jen T, 2015/08/13
Amazing! The experience was worth every penny. Our guide, Steve, was very knowledgable. We learned a lot and saw a lot. The only thing I didn't care for was the food selection for lunch and dinner, but I'm picky.
Mahalo for your review, Jen! We are always aiming to improve our guest's experience, so your feedback is genuinely appreciated :)
Visiting from Indiana and CaliforniaReviewed by: Tim Durham, 2014/12/04
We had an excellent time on the tour! We were treated as "Specialer" guests by our guide "John" and were surprised with an after dark visit to view the volcano! It was awesome. John even serenaded us at the end with his guitar and a medley of Willie Nelson and Eric Clapton songs! He made the day even more fun because he was so great! Would highly recommend this trip!
