It was a fantastic tour that ran smoothly from the pick up my hotel the flight to Hilo the marvelous tour with our leader Leroy, who was very knowledgeable and interesting, to seeing the Volcano and the return trip.
A day to remember.
This was a big day. An early pickup for the airport, but not too long to wait and then Sharon had us for the day. She talked non stop, telling us all about the Big Island, dropping us off at regular intervals to look at the sights. We were even entertained with an impromptu song and hula display by Sharon, wonderfully executed.
We only had the day and saw so much, getting home that night. All in all a great day.
This is a full day tour, be prepared to wake early wake up and return late, but believe me its all worth it. Our trip was seamless, hotel pickup to the airport where our boarding passes where waiting. A short 45 min flight to the Big Island where we were met by our driver / guide Rob, who is one of the best guides we've ever had, very knowledgeable and easy going. The flow of the overall tour was conducted in a non-rushed way. We saw so much more than was on our itinerary. We walked on old lava flows, black sand beach and lava tunnel. We where taken to a waterfall, an orchid farm, and the Mauna Loa Macadamia nut farm. There were plenty of gift shops, bathroom stops, and picture taking stops. We brought our own snacks to nibble during the day but lunch at the Volcano House was average and rushed. Volcanoes National park is awesome and an overall a day that we will never forget. Final tip, there is limited food at Hilo airport for the trip back.
Very fun and full day of learning about how the Hawaiian Islands were formed. Our guide Walter was wonderful.
Excellent tour for those interested in volcanoes, it was a long day, make sure you take some food with you. The tour guide/driver was great Sharon, very informative and happy to answer questions. Great tour.
Awesome tour, we would love to have a closer view of the crater but we understand that is a matter of safety. Our Guide John was amazingly kind and knowledgeable. It was a long day but a pleasant experience.
Another great trip through Viator! Our trip was seamless. We drove to the airport and were met by a tour guide who helped us get our boarding pass. We took a 40 min flight to the Big Island where we were met by our Driver/Guide Walter, who was one of the best guides we've ever had. He grew up on Hawai'i so he gave us a local's perspective and knowledge. He kept us on task in a non-rushed way. We saw so much more than was on our itinerary. We walked on old lava flows and a black sand beach. We saw water falls, an orchid farm, and the Mauna Loa Macademia nut farm. There were plenty of gift shops, bathroom stops, and picture taking stops. We stopped at a restauant for optional lunch purchase, which was not made clear in the itinerary. We brought sandwiches but had them for dinner instead as food at the airport on the return trip was limited. Volcanoes National park is awesome! Overall, a fabulous trip through Viator, the local tour company and our Guide Walter, and one we highly recommend!
Tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. The volcano was amazing! Highly recommend this tour!
Long day but fantastic! Our guide Walter was so knowledgeable and informative
The tour was more than amazing I am so happy that I use Viator.com to help me put it together I highly recommended
Can't rate this tour highly enough. Amazing to see something we may never see again.
Thoroughly enjoyed our adventure day. Our guide was very pleasant, humorous, and knowledgeable. Wish we had more time at the Jagger museum. Other than that the day was perfect. Good selection for the lunch meal. The food was delicious. We are 70 years old but did not find the day to be too strenuous even though we went to many sites. Would definitely go on another tour.
Great tour. Jane was an amazing driver and tour guide. Long day but worth every minute. Perfectly organized. Would highly recommend to anyone.
Amazing. The tour guide (Captain Rob) has a passion for the island, and it showed. The raw power and devastation of the volcano was contrasted by the beauty of the flora it brings.
We had a great time on our tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. We were there when the lava was flowing and got to see it. It was well worth the time and money.
Tour great well worth the money. Tour guide Leroy was so knowledgeable, very accommodating. Long day but we had a great time. Highly recommend!
Well worth the effort of a very long day. It was exhilarating to stand on the edge of the main crater.
The guide was amazing! He gave us lots of informations! The volcanoes National Park is definitely a one of a kind place on earth and is totally worth seeing !
Our tour guide, Captain Rob, was AWESOME! He was right with us in the museums and in the lava fields and explaining things up close and in person and it was so much better than any of the tours that I had otherwise taken. If you don't have time to spend more than a day on the Big Island than this tour is worth it because it was amazing!
Amazing Big Island !! so so beautiful !! I love it.. tour guide was very nice and sweet.
Our driver/tour guide was very knowledgeable. He was by far the best tour guide we had while on or visit to the Big Island. Had a blast and learned a lot from his show and tell. We would do it again if I knew I would have him to go with. Even thought we did not see Lava like we did 10 years ago. He made this trip enjoyable and very pleasant.
The only downside of trip was the lady who met us at the airport at the beginning of the day. She was very disorganized and could not believe we were there o early. We found her at 5:40- we were told to be there by 5:30!
Our day guide,Leroy Johnson, made up for the bad start. He was knowledgeable and quite personable. Leroy was very organized and professional
