Saw a lot, learned a lot, and was entertained a lot. The driver was funny, witty, knowledgeable and charming.

It took us a while to find the tour guide but after that, we had an enjoyable time. We were on a mini bus which was only half full so we were not cramped. We visited numerous places as well as the volcano. The weather was not the best, rain on and off. Our guide was great and continually kept up a running commentary for us. Great tour.

Edmund, our driver, took us on an excellent tour of the island of Hawaii. First we stopped at Rainbow Falls which was lovely. The next stop was an orchid garden with beautiful displays of different kinds of orchids. Also the anthurium were spectacular. The macadamia nut farm and factory was a handy place to stop for lunch and sample various macadamia preparations. Also a good place for gifts boxes of nuts. Then on to the Lava Tube. Simply fascinating tour although you do have to be pretty fit. The path down to the tube is very steep and the stairs up are steep too. The tube is a very interesting cave-like feature but the informative panels are quite helpful. A quick stop at the steam vents was interesting and enough to wilt everything. We arrived at the volcano and museum in time to see the volcano erupt a bit! The museum was okay. Edmund was friendly, informative, interesting and gave everyone plenty of time at each stop. High marks all around for a great day.
Edmond was a great guide. Lots of interesting things to say and answered everyone's questions. Small group (van holds up to 15). Never felt rushed, yet got everything in. Drove too Volcano National Park via one route and back by another, so we could see more of the island. We saw all we had wanted to see and felt it was a great value.

This was a terrific tour! Loved it! The guide was so personable and funny! The only thing I would change is more time at the Visitor Center area.

We took this tour on 6/27/17. Paul, our guide, was a lot of fun. We made several stops before going to the volcano itself. We never felt rushed; there were about 8 of us on the mini-bus. Paul was very knowledgeable about the area. I would highly recommend this tour!
It was a most enjoyable and fun filled experience. Would recommend it to anyone wanting to learn more.

Good tour of the volcano. Got to see the lava and steam coming up from the volcano.

You never have time to do it all, but this tour lets you come pretty darn close. We started with a brief visit to the King Kamehameha statue, then on to Rainbow Falls. Next stop was the Akatsuka Orchid Garden. Then on to my favorites - the Thurston Lava Tube and finally Volcanoes National Park. We were fortunate to see Kilaeua erupting stronger than it has in several years. Our guide even started taking pictures! Edgar is extremely knowledgeable and has plenty of stories to keep your interest throughout the day.
We were very happy with our Volcano National Park tour. Our tour guide was great and very knowledgeable - he gave us a great tour!
Great sites, great info, and fun activities.
Nothing negative to report.
