nice tour, a few extra stops like a local cookie/candy store which was expensive. The waterfall is beautiful and the volcano is amazing. Very informative and a good price for this tour.

We had booked the Hilo Shore Excursion to Volcanoes National Park and Rainbow Falls ahead of our cruise.
When we got off the ship we were greeted by Roberts Hawaii and their wonderful driver Derek.
He was more than a bus driver. Through out the whole day he was humorous and shared his knowledge of the Big Island, Hawaii.
Derek made many stops along the way and even fit in a few extras. There was appropriate time to see everything.
This was a superb excursion and we would highly recommend it!! If your lucky too, you may even get Derek Bus 688.
He certainly made our trip, thumbs up to him!

This was also a great tour , the guide was very informative, and we have loved learning about the Hawaiian Culture.
The visit to the volcanoes was amazing n never enough time to absorb all the information in the centre there.

Great tour, way cheaper than booked from the ship and most efficient. On tours from ship we had to wait up to an hour, but with Viator we walked off the ship and onto a comfortable bus. Great tour guide and not rushed.

A great day with a great tour guide and Jeffrey even entertained us with his ukulele playing and singing! Could not have been better.

This was a great tour and I would highly recommend it. If I could give it 10 stars I would! Our tour consisted of touring Volcanoes National Park which included the museum, a walk through lava tube, walking onto a lava field and the steam vents, Rainbow Falls, the Moana Loa Macadamia Nut Processing facility, Big Island Candies, a tea garden in downtown Hilo as well as downtown Hilo. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. He kept everyone involved on the bus. He told us about the history of Hilo, including the Tsunami from the 1940's and the volcano eruption that could be seen from Hilo because the eruption shot the length of 2 Empire State Buildings into the air in the 1980's. After visiting the museum and returning to the bus, we found our guide as well as another guide sitting on the half wall playing a ukulele and singing. They were great. As we approached the volcano, he advised us that we may or may not see lava and explained why, to our amazement, we saw the lava bubbling pretty clearly. He got us back to our ship exactly when he said he would, which was plenty of time for our departure.
