This was the best excursion I have ever been on. Greg was our driver and he was very knowledgeable and experienced. I am glad that we went on this tour instead of driving up saddle road to the summit ourselves.
It was really nice to have someone who was experienced with the road and also able to talk about the history of the area, as well as identify the various types of plants and lava in the area.
The sunset on the summit was incredible, and something one would never likely see again. The stars afterwards were also magnificent.
I went with my parents who are in their mid sixties and fiance who has sickle cell trait. Everyone felt fine, though we all had taken Diamox prophylactically to prevent altitude sickness.
I highly recommend this tour to anyone going to the big island.
