Ticked off a lot of areas we wanted to cover in one day, including visiting a coffee farm and winery, seeing the Painted Church, checking out turtles and of course the lava tube and volcano. Our guide PJ was awesome. The only real disappointment was the weather but nothing that we could do about that.. Definitely a great way to see the island and get some local insight that you cant read about in guidebooks.
I didn't really know what to expect in this tour, but it turned out to be one of the most relaxing tours I have ever done. The pace was perfect. Out tour guide/driver Ricardo was knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. He told us about Hawaiian culture and included many stories. Our first stop at the Kona coffee plantation took us an idyllic location for lunch. We stopped at the coffee shop/museum, the black sand beach I had seen this before, but it was fun regardless, and then arrived at the Hawaii volcano national park. The lava fields and Thurston lava tube were very interesting. Next we went outside the park for wine tasting place. We had a delicious dinner there. I didn't do the winery tour I wish I had but I am sure it was interesting. We returned to the park to see the 'glow'. I was totally unprepared for the beauty of the glow of the volcano it was out of this world. I would have liked to spend more time at the Jagger museum. 10-15 minutes were just not enough. I didn't get to see the museum at all I just did a hurried shopping as it was the only opportunity to buy something from the national park. Except for that, this was a great tour.
jessie was the best guide ever!!!!! Had a blast with this tour! No other way to see the lava glow than at night!
Wow, what a great time we had. It was a full day but our guide was great. He was knowledgeable, friendly, on time and a very good driver. We saw the most amazing sites including an active glowing volcano! We got a great overview of the area of Kona as well as some insight in to the history of Hawaii. The Coffee Tour and Winery Dinner were well organized and the food was good. I would recommend this highly to anyone that has not been to the area before.
This was a great tour. Great tour guide. Every part of the volcano was fabulous and amazing! Lunch view was beautiful, food ok. Winery tasting rushed and not for wine lover but average consumer. Bbq dinner delicious. Coffee farm disappointing - only one to taste, but learned a ton! Recommend.
It was amazing....From seeing the lava red glow in the sky, to walking in the lava tube and also in the rising steam from the volcano, simply amazing. Our guide, Marcus, was extremely knowledgeable and very personable as well. The only downside was that we didn't see any spewing lava, but that had nothing to do with the tour, only with mother nature. A long day trip, about 11 hours, but worth every minute of it.
It was a full day but well worth it. Our guide John was a wealth of knowledge. The food was just ok, nothing special.
