We loved the tour, a must do for anyone interested in volcanoes. Christopher, our tour guide, was extremely knowledgeable about the history and make up of the island. He was eager to answer all questions and honor requests. He was just flat out a gracious host. Even though the volcano wasn’t active and the weather was less than ideal, I still give this tour 5 stars.

Although the active volcano did not have any visible lava, it was a very nice trip. Got to learn and be entertained by Grants knowledge of Hawaii and enjoyed his great story telling. The Lava Tube was unbelievable — how can that be done by lava?!? The dinner was very nice and enjoyed our visit with other tourists.

Our tour guide, Jim Carey, was very knowledgeable with many Hawaiian history stories and the area. Ask a question and he had an answer.Stops were educational and informative. Dinner at Kileaua Lodge was wonderful. Since these tours have recently resumed after the volcano erruption, please consider a tour and request Jim. Our group was 7 but could be 12

Aaron was a bery knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide. The tour visited many interesting sites including waterfalls and lava glows. There were only 11 of us on the 14 seater minivan which made it more intimate. The van was very comfortable and clean.

Great trip. If you want to spend an enjoyable day learning about volcanos and the Bid Island, all while someone else does the driving, this is a trip worth every penny. Tour picked us up at Kohala resort. They were going to be a few minutes late due to another pick-up, but called us and informed us - very much appreciated. Vehicle was comfortable and clean. Our tour guide was Zane Smith who happens to be a PHD Geologist with a passion for the volcanos and a dynamic, engaging personality. If you take this trip, ask for Zane. The evening meal at local restaurant in Volcano was excellent and also a highlight of the trip. Enjoyed the brief stop at Big Island Candies as well. If you want to experience volcano visit without the long hike to live lava flows, this trip is the way to go.

Absolutely amazing day. We were extremely lucky to have Jim Carey as our guide who was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining throughout the day and made sure we all had a great time. We would definitely recommend doing this tour and if we are lucky enough to come back to the Big Island would not hesitate to do it again.
