Leroy was the best guide with his knowledge and great story telling. We fitted alot in that day and felt safe doing it.Highlight was walking on the lava flow from 1979.You think it's another planet. Walking through the lava tunnel also. Lunch was a in the accommodation lodge with a view of the volcano which is smoking away. Again the weather up the mountain became misty and foggy and their was one view we didn't get to see.Again that's mother nature and no one can change that.

We both really enjoyed this tour in Hilo. It was a long day but it was very interesting. Our bus driver was Sharon. She was very friendly and knowledgeable and heaps of fun. She even sang to us. Loved everything about this trip. We were not disappointed at all.

Our driver/tour guide Dennis was the best. He kept us on schedule but didn't make it seem that we were on a schedule. He was knowledgeable and witty and kept track of everyone. . he was amazing! I've taken many tours around the world but I rate the Volcano Adventure trip on Hawaii the best!

It was perfect in every sense of the word. Our guide, (Auntie) Sharon Simoes was very, very knowledgable and informative of the area. And humorous as well. It was a great day. Whatever Ms. Simones is paid (excluding tips) it can't possibly be enough. She deserves a raise!!

Pretty good tour, we went to a lot of different places which I was suprised to go too. The driver was awesome too. Thought I would suggest that the driver be more animated to share his culture with the guest. I'm a native Hawaiian and I used to be a tour driver and I would just be excited to do my tours telling of all the great Hawaiian history within the islands. I would have told the people that they are on the Umi side of the island and Umi was a great Native Hawaiian chief still revered by Native Hawaiians. I would tell them that the Kona and Kohala side is refered too as the Keawe side. Keawe was a chief who is still revered by Native Hawaiians until today. I was happy and satisfied with this tour.

Great tour. Our guide was very informative about the volcano and
Hawaiian life. The company was also very helpful in recovering our camera that we left on the bus. I would highly recommend doing this tour, the day went by really fast because of all the different stops that we made.

To see a live volcano up close is awe-inspiring and the guide was exceptionally knowledgeable and helpful. The museum and the lava tube are the highlights.

Well what a fantastic day. We were lucky enough for our hotel in Kona to put us on the same tour without having to self drive to Hilo. thank God, our driver Cousin Komo James was just full of information. Even the plants on the side of the road. We travelled the whole island and he did not stop. We enjoyed this tour so much, we learnt so much. this was our second time to the Volcano. The first time as newly weds we drive our selves, but having James driving the bus, we went to places we missed the first time and just his knowledge about the island is amazing and you should not miss this tour. If you go to the Big Island, this is the tour to do.

We had a great time on the Big Island Volcano tour. We were visiting Hawaii on our honeymoon and island hopped to the Big Island for the day. This tour was a great way to see the Big Island and some of it's higlights in a short period of time. We had a fabulous tour guide. She was funny and very educated on the island. We would highly recommend this tour!

The trip was great but all we needed to see was lava flow for it to be spectacular.

We both had a good time. Our guide was knowledgeable and courteous. We saw some beautiful sights and learned some neat history of the islands. I only wish that we had skipped the stops in town so that more time could have been spent at the volcanoes since that is what the tour is meant to be about. We especially could have done without the stop at the convenience store to get snacks for the day. It would be better that they advise you get those ahead of time and then more time could be spent enjoying the sights. We felt too rushed at some of them. Overall, it was a good day and I'd definitely recommend this trip.

This was a great tour which included much more than just the volcanoes tour. Our tour guide John was quirky, very funny, but most importantly knowledgable about all of the sites within the tour. This is a full day of adventure so his sense of humor came in handy throughout the day. I would definitely book through Viator again.

The tour (Polynesian adventures) was fun and the tour guide Sharon, was really knowledgable and helpful!!! The company was accommodative of our flight schedule. The lunch stop was disappointing, but i guess it was best available! I would still recommend this tour
