Our tour guide Katie was amazing!!! She made the tour a five star tour because of her knowledge and her enthusiasm.
It was fantastic. Our tour guide Avia (Sp ???) was excellent. She was very informed about everything asked of her. Very knowledgeable about the Island. BUT, I thought my husband tipped her and he thought I did. This has been on my mind since we left and I need to know an address to send her something. Please make this possible for me. Karen Smith
I travel a lot and this tour was fantastic the tour guide was absolutely amazing with her knowledge of the island and the people. I would definitely recommend this to everybody, if you travel you want to see the Kilauea Volcano this is the tour you should take!!
The tour and the guide were amazing. We learnt heaps and the guide was more than willing to answer any question asked about the islands/USA. The volcanoe viewing after dinner was spectacular - we would have loved to have stayed longer. Just means we have to go back again someday....
Only negative was that the bus configuration meant that as the last people on board we had to climb over seats (and that's not an exaggeration) to get to the back seat all day. It was super hot/humid when we were there so this made it extra challenging. Rotating the seating around part way during the day would have been a solution (although childish and maybe not always possible depending on the agility of the participants). Would still use this company/tour again though.
Loved the tour guide, Loren. Loved the stories he told and all the sites we saw. For the tour of the volcano itself, I thought we would see the active lava flows. Seeing the past lava flows and ghe steam vents wss intersting but if I ever get anither chance, I will take a night time tour instead. For me it was just a little anticlimatic.
Doing what: Big Island Hawaii Volcano Adventure
The tour was worth doing but we did come to see some amazing volcanic activity. This wasn't to be for us on this occasion and to no ones fault. It just wasn't happening. The driver was good, the visits were good but all a bit robotic and uneventful. To me a little ho hum w/out bigger volcano action.
We drove to the area where lava flowed into the ocean and walked on the lava out to the latest flow. Flow stopped several months ago; so no lava to be seen. Then moved on to the summit of the volcano and walked the lava tube, then dinner in the lava hotel with views of the caldera and smoke; then viewing of the caldara glowing red at night. I think a bit overpriced for things easy to do on our own with a car. If you have a vehicle; i'd suggest doing it on your own, on your own schedule.
This tour was amazing!
Excellent!!!!! I had never ziplined before and the staff made me feel comfortable about zipping. Great pilot for the helicopter ride, got us really close to the active volcano.....what a view! Extra kudos for our guide (Kelsey), who picked us up at our hotel in Kona, drove us to and from Hilo and also did our Volcano Museum tour. She was very friendly, upbeat and informative throughout the day about what we were seeing and doing.
This tour was amazing!
I can't speak highly enough for the big island adventure tour! This was such a fun, memorable, and super organized tour! Zip lining was probably my favorite part. The views were breathtaking. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgable! Certainly a day to remember and great for people of all ages!
Very worthwhile trip. Enjoyed our guide. Best part was seeing the volcano at night!
Eric was friendly and informative. We appreciated the cold drinks and snacks. The black sand beach was unique and interesting. Dinner was fine. We enjoyed the Jaggar Museum, and the evening view of the volcano from the its overlook was impressive. The absence of lava flow was somewhat disappointing. I'd suggest the tour guide order a seat rotation for the various driving segments so the same people don't have to climb to the back of the van each time.
My boyfriend and I took this tour on our recent trip to the Big Island and found it to be a great way to see some of the island. Our guide Dominik was so knowledgable of the history and environment, and we felt very well cared for the entire time. We highly recommend this tour.
This was a great tour. We did it all. Long day and not cheap but full of great activities for the whole family. The zipline was scarey initially but kids loved it. Helicopter was excellent, walked through lava tube and then the view of the caldera at night was fantastic. Vern was a great tour leader
