Volcano man Scott rocks!

Scott was an excellent tour guide! Knowledgeable, fun, attentive, lunch on Japanese garden was great. We saw all 5 Volcanos that make up Hawaii. Seeing all 5 climates of the Big Island. Glad he was driving. The waterfalls were beautiful. Kilauea Volcano erupting is scary, but powerful. Volcano man Scott is a personal amazing tour.

This was a great tour. There were only the two of us but that was enough people for the tour to proceed. Scott then tailored it exactly to our interests as we had seen a couple of sites on a previous tour. Had a great day!

Since watching the news coverage of the volcano erupting in 2018, it was so interesting to hear the facts and see the sights. Scott is very knowledgeable and shared so much! Scott was very accommodating and met all our wishes on the sights we wanted to see! Our group had so much fun, learned a lot and throughly enjoyed this tour!

It was the highlight of our trip. I learned so much about the island and volcanoes. Scott knows his stuff. From the gorgeous rainbow, dramatic seascapes and shoreline, lush rainforest and waterfalls, to the new lava fields that were still warm, it was hard to pick what was best. I think for me it was the lava, realizing the scope of it all. Definitely educational and Scott kept it fun. It was. Wonderful experience.

Unprofessional: Volcano Van did not take us to the Volcano

Warning beware glorified taxi driver . Tour guide was unprofessional, did not deliver what he advertised. Cut tour time in half, was advertised as 12 hours and only took us for 8. Missed Big Island highlights Volcano National Park . Even though he claims he is the Volcano Man. Lava fields nice but not worth what I paid for ....Again False Advertisement. He also was on the phone with friends and texting while driving multiple times during the trip, as well as making plans for dinner after the tour.

Scott was our guide. He was super personable, very knowledgeable on a LOT of fronts, even unrelated ones, and very attentive to everyone's questions. He knew the island extremely well and involved the six of us who were with him in conversations and responses. Really made it enjoyable because of his passion for the island and for passing that on to others. The Volcano Van is a major two thumbs up!

OMG! Very knowlegable, customized tour, a lot of fun. Kept a moving, but not rushed pace. Learned much about the Island, volcanos, & saw the newest black sand beach & lava fields created by the last eruption. Would definitely do another tour with Scott. Thanks!

It is hard to imagine that a tour guide better than Scott exists on the Big Island. You will not find a more personable, knowledgeable and passionate guide. His personality is akin to Steve Irwin.Given it was our first visit to the Big Island, we wanted to take a tour that would educate us about the island: the natural history, the island history and the sights and features. We also hoped to gain insight about what to do for the duration of our time here.We researched every tour at the same price point that left from Kona. Our primary reason for selecting the Volcano Van was the intimacy. We did not want to be on a bus listening to a guide though headphones. Each Volcano Van tour is limited to six passengers. We had four. The other reason we choose Volcano Van was that Scott was highly recommended in every review we read. Scott was as advertised. And the tour was exactly what we wanted. From the moment we met Scott, we were excited about our day. He was full of energy and excited to share his knowledge with us. He created an easy atmosphere. He answered all of our questions. And there were a lot. For a full day we learned, shared, walked, talked, discussed, ate, drank and saw the island, from volcanos to beaches to waterfalls. Scott's passion about volcanos is unmatched, but his broad knowledge was also impressive. One other characteristic I truly enjoyed about Scott was his concern and protectiveness for the island. By the end of the tour, we felt like we made three new friends, especially in Scott. We highly recommend the Volcano Van.

I highly recommend Scott's Volcano Van tour. It was AMAZING. Scott was an entertaining and friendly guide who delivered a personalized and informational tour of the island. Scott tailored the tour to meet our interests and was very knowledgeable about the geology and history of the areas we visited. We had so much fun!
