The tour was great and our guide Taj was very knowledgeable about the geology, animals and plants native and not native to the island. My husband and I were very impressed with the tour. It covered some interesting areas and there was some hiking involved which was great considering the long ride to get to the park. The views at times were spectacular especially down by the ocean. We saw the volcano from different angles and although we would have loved to look into the crater, we understand that is not allowed. Taj showed us some nice pictures of what we would have seen had we been able to look into it. This trip was definitely work doing!
Mathew was passionate about Hawaii Island an all things Hawaiian. He made the journey pleasant and interesting.
The entire trip was first class from the time they picked us up from our hotel. Steve was the best. He was so knowledgable about everything volcanoes. He taught about the flora and fauna of the island, the customs, and so much more. He went out of his way to make sure everything was perfect for us. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone coming to Kona.
Absolutely one of the most enjoyable and informative tours we have been on. We had a great small group and thoroughly enjoyed the company of our fellow passengers. Cannot praise our guide Mark highly enough - the weather was challenging to say the least but he still made it a fantastic day with his knowledge and professional way of engaging with us all. We learnt heaps about the real Hawaii and will not forget our day for a long time. Highly recommend!
A wonderful tour with very knowledgeable and helpful guides. Entering the forest walk to the sounds of the nose flute playing was magic. The volcanoes national park visit when on the Big Island is great with the view at night so different to that of mid afternoon.
While the weather was not perfect, our tour guide Taj was fantastic and made the trip both fun and educational.
It was a very informative tour! Very cool to see the lava rocks and cave. Wish we could have gotten closer to the active volcano. Lunch and dinner provided!
loved it. tour guide steve obviously loves his job and the island. very informative. i had a birthday ill never equal or forget. i recommend this tour.
The trip was fantastic! The tour guide Lauren was the BEST tour guide we've ever had! Would definitely recommend to others. Well worth the twilight tour vs. going on the daylight only tour!
Great tour. Knowledgeable and friendly guide, and decent food during the tour. I highly recommend it.
Excellent tour! Terrific driver/guide. Very knowledgeable, comfortable tour.
Great trip run by a very professional tour group. Our guide Mark was brilliant, knowledgeable, passionate and spent the entire day engaged with everyone on the tour. Well worth a visit to Big Island.
Justin, our tour guide, was funny, extremely knowledgeable and a terrific guide for the tour. We saw all the volcanoes as it was a clear day and we had excellent views! The food was really good too. I would definitely recommend the volcano twilight tour!!
The tour was great. The guide Eugene with his knowledge of the island, its people, and not only the obvious tourist sties but the plant life and how the island became what it is now from the natural to the imported plants made the tour worth the money.
My Husband and I really got so much out of this tour.
Our guide was well informed. He took great care of us on the full day excursion.
It was so nice to see the volcano at night and not have to do the drive home on our own. We had flexibility as group and decided to do a side trip that wasn't scheduled.
Highly recommend taking advantage of this tour, It makes the landscape come alive !
This tour was awesome. Taj our guide was knowledgeable, entertaining and passionate about the park. The tour is really well planned with opportunities to get out of the small and comfortable bus, small hikes and loads of interesting landscapes to see and experience. We saw everything and more of what was expected, plus learned so much about the Big Island and its incredible diversity. And yes we saw red lava! The walk through the lava tunnel at night was incredible and I equally enjoyed the walks on the black lava where it met the sea or where it had eaten up trees in its path and formed sculptural mounds. The meals boxed were really good too. Taj is a brilliant guide, and we were so lucky to have him share his love and knowledge of this beautiful landscape. I would do this tour again - it was a wonderful day/night.
Excellent. Eugene the guide was very knowledgable and made the excursion great fun.
Absolutely fantastic day. Our guide was most informative. Great small group. Highly recommend this tour
Kilauea put on quite a show for us. The tour was amazing!! Even though it was raining imagine that - - raining in the Rainforest, our guide, Mark, knew exactly what to do and where to go to make the best use of our time. Including when to go to the crater viewing area at night for spectacular views. A lot of ooohhs and aaaahhs were heard. Photos just can't show you what you will see in person. Mark also made two stops on the way that others may have missed. He knows a lot about the park, and the area on the way, including the flora and fauna....which was a nice plus. We were surprised to meet so many locals who had no idea what a seemingly common tree Ugly Fruit and animal Mongoose were. Mark knew those two, and many, many more. The Mercedes tour van was spotless, and comfortable. You do need to bring or wear long pants and bring a sweatshirt or jacket - it's cooler up there! In the park, we saw other tours where their members were drenched. I heard one guide say, well we TOLD them to bring rain coats. Rain jackets yes, waterproof were provided for us, as was a nice packed lunch and dinner complete with cookies, big brownies, water, hot tea, soft drinks, juice and hot chocolate. Just an amazing experience, and all the little extras were much appreciated. Mark took good very care of us, especially my mother.
Chris had a tremendous amount of knowledge the entire day. He kept us informed, safe, not rushed and away from crowds to enjoy every aspect of the tour!!!
I would highly recommend this tour!
Absolutely wonderful trip!!! Our guide, Justin was a pleasure to spend time with, he was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. Our tour bus was brand new and top of the line and the lunch and dinner were lovely. He took us to trails when they were quiet so that we weren't fighting the crowds and we got to see Kilauea steaming during the day and burning fiery hot at night. Highly recommend this!
Great tour. Lots of information. Guide (Eugene) was excellent. Would highly recommend. See and learn heaps. We all (adults and kids) had a great day. Food was delicious.
