Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Big Island Zipline Tour and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park from Hilo or Kona. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
This was definitely one of the best tours we booked through Viator on our two-week, two island vacation in the islands. This tour was two parts: zip line adventure in a scenic part of the island near Hilo; a visit to Volcanoes National Park in the afternoon and evening to view Kilauea, a lava tube, and the informative Visitors Center during daylight; and, Kilauea at night to see the gaseous glow of the live volcano.
Rob and Keahau, our tour guides, picked us up at our hotel near Kona at precisely the time we were told. They had snacks, gave us rest breaks, and narrated anything you could ask on the way to the Hilo side of the island.
We experienced our first zip line adventure on an eight-line course, the longest line being one half mile. The scenery was beautiful. The zip line was an adrenaline rush. Tiare, Matt, and Cory, the zip line staff, were excellent at assuring we were safe and had a lot of fun.
The tour provided lunch and dinner. We even had time to visit Rainbow Falls and an orchid farm on the way to the park. If we are on the island again in the future, we will do this again. And, Viator does a great job.
