Everything was great, especially our host on Big Island - Denis, who knew everything about the island and the life there.
Had a fantastic day and with blue skies we had the added bonus of clear views of Big Island as the Hawaiian Airlines plane followed the east coast and approached Hilo airport. Our tour guide for the day was great fun. A pity there wasn't any lava actually flowing on the day, but for myself a former geology teacher, it was a real treat to get close to the volcano and walk on the lava flows.
Absolutely loved it!! The hot steam vent was pretty awesome when you stand in front of it and the lava tube was fun! I loved the macadamia nut farm (just make sure you're not going on a public holiday like I did) and trying the different types of flavours, and the waterfalls were just beautiful! To top it off I got to meet a UFC fighter on my flight home!! This was my favourite tour of my itinerary!
Henry was a great tour guy and very informative. Didn't see any lava in the end but the information exchange from Henry was well worth it. The tour was well organized and I'd recommend it to anyone.
Wow. Amazing to see current, and evidence of recent volcanic activity, and quite possibly once in a life time. Seeing the gas plume from the volcano pit was surreal. Hot steam from fissures all around. The black sand beach and vast amount of lava at the village of Kalapana was an amazing site (each lunch first). Macadamia Farm is just a snack stop but great snacks! The orchid farm is also really lovely but probably just for the ladies and keen orchid lovers! Our tour guide Denis was excellent, funny and very informative. Long day, but fantastic and well worth the trip. Mother nature in raw form - the formation of the earth happening as we stood there! Loved it and would thoroughly recommend the experience.
It was well worth the money, especially if you are looking for a small taste of another island. The tour guide was great and the sights were wonderful. I would recomment this tour to anyone who wishes to see the Big Island for just a day!
I loved this island, it was so beautiful. So much to see. Tour was well worth it.

An excellent well narrated trip with plenty of variation. Longer day than anticipated though due to a 2 hour delay on the return flight - approx 18 hours
No words to describe a place like this. The only way to do, is to go exploring it! Awesome... Booking service serious, shuttle bus service to the airport extremely on time. Awesome place!
I enjoyed the trip immensely and everything run very smoothly thanks.
It was an awesome trip. In addition to visiting the volcanoes we saw so many additional sites that we were not expecting. It gave us a great tour of the Hilo area. The tour guide was so knowledgeable. We enjoyed the entire trip.
The people were GREAT. On your voucher you should put more information about who is to pick us up at the airport and the actual name of the tour company. I only found the name on the email you sent saying you could not pick us up. We loved our guide. Very informative and sweet and funny.
The trip to the Big Island to see and learn about the Island was well worth the time. You will see a Volcano but, you will not be guaranteed the sight of lava. The day we were there the lava flow had changed direction and was about 6 miles from us. Guess if you were up to the hike you could have left the tour and went on your own. Our guide was very well informed about all things the Island had to offer and was very funny. He would take time to answer any questions you had and I don't think he ever said "I don't know". If you are looking for a good time and want to see some great countryside this is a trip worth doing. I just wish I would of had more time.
We had an excellent guide-driver. The trip was extremely interesting, educational and informative, and we would do it again.
I definitely recommend this tour! It was a very long day but well worth the time as it was an awesome experience. The tour suits people of varying physical ability - my parents and I had a wonderful experience that will last forever in our memories. Go for it and enjoy! Two thumbs up!
Fantastic! Our tour guide made this one of the best tours I have ever been on. He was very knowledgeable and funny. He even brought us to a private black-sand beach to see some sea turtles at the end of the day since we had some time to kill. A must-do if you are visiting the Big Island.
Fantastic trip - it covered everything we hoped for. Everyone should do it.
The volcano trip was fantastic! Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining! He was one of the best guides I have toured with. I would have liked to spend more time walking over the lava flow and would have liked to skip the orchid stop. The orchid stop was not worth while and was the worst part of the trip. The trip was much better than I expected and I would recommend this trip to anyone.
This was a great tour - the rain forest, lava tube, and crater are fantastic experiences, and our guide was a delight!
The tour was good. It was mostly rainy and overcast so difficult to see the steam vents and the caldera.
This is an interesting day. Our driver/guide, Sharon, was very informative and a lot of fun. We had plenty of time at each stop and never felt rushed, especially at the Volcano. But don't expect to see lava flowing! We did however stop at some old flow sites and even walked on it, which was pretty cool. It is a good way to see some of the Big Island, and see that it is quite different to some of the other islands. But it is only a taste! The tour was well organised right from the pick up and flights, but it is a long day. I really enjoyed it
