We really enjoyed this tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable. The small tour experience allowed us to see a lot of different things in a short period of time.
Perfect tour. Walk near the Volcano, waterfalls and at the black sand beach. Our guide was so nice with us.

This excursion was a great one to do. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about everything we did and saw. Seeing the active volcano up close was unbelievable and the waterfall was beautiful. My favorite part of the tour was when he took us to a black beach. I don't think that was part of the tour but we were talking about wanting to see one. While there, we got to see about 11 turtles sunning themselves on rocks and get up close to them. I don't remember our guides name, but he lives in the area and he was great!!
One of our favorite tours in the trip. our guide Josh was great! Worth the price
