Volcano hike
Sean
, Jul 2022
There’s a lot of great places to see and lots of information to take in. To see the lava at the crater rim of Kilauea volcano + a hike in the lava tube was breathtaking not to mention stargazing in a bright clear sky was priceless. Recommend coming prepared (good hiking shoes, long pants, parka jackets) as the temperature dips down to the 40sF (from 80F) with wind gust of 40m/hr.

PRICELESS....

Our tour guide Gary was exceptional...Very knowledgeable about the history of Hawaii. You could tell he had a great love for the island with the way he spoke about it and we learned so much from him. Thanks Gary too for the many tips that you gave to us from places to visit, to the best restaurants to try. But we especially appreciated the kindness and attentiveness that you paid to each and everyone of us throughout the trip. This company should feel very lucky to have such a great ambassador of the hawaiian islands, its people and their cultures. Thank you for giving us a special memory that we will never forget Gary! Take Care

Amazing Lava at night
Anna_E
, May 2022
I am not a tour person. The idea of being stuck in a van with complete strangers for 11 hours concerns me. My wife encouraged me because she really wanted to see the lava at night and I didn't want to drive back down to Kona after dark. I will say this was one of the coolest things we have done in Hawaii. Bryce, our tour guide, did an amazing job of keeping us all entertained with history, fun facts and the occasional Dad joke. By the end of day we all knew each other very well and it turned out to be a really great day.

Tour guide was very informative and an excellent driver. He gave a lot of really interesting and cool information about Hawaii and it’s a nice way to get to see some pretty awesome places. We saw 3 sea turtles on the black sand beach and seeing the lava bubble at night is super cool. Also the restaurant you go to has some good food and drinks :)

We saw lava!
Yogi_D
, Apr 2022
Our trip was from 12pm to 1130pm. This experience is not for elderly or children who can not sit for long periods of time or walk 1-2 miles in the dark, on what usually is slippery terrain. We had an amazing time. We had a great tour guide named Derek. He was very personable and sweet. We were able to venmo him a tip. Gratuities are not included. Be sure to tip your guide and the restaurant you eat at. The picnic lunch at The coffee farm was wonderful. The dinner was delicious. And we saw lava and the starry sky at 6000ft. Bring long pants for the evening…and a light jacket. They do provide you a jacket though. The shuttle bus follows us everywhere so you can bring a small bag with change of clothes or any other items to leave on the bus. There are also snacks and water/drinks throughout the trip. We had a great time. Long travel back to hotel at the end of the day, but we all were sleeping, so it was no big deal. Thank you Derek!

Wonderful excursion. It was a long trip to the volcano, it was nice to have someone drive us and educate us at the same time. Derik was a really great guide who knew a lot about the island.
icon Response from Host , Apr 2022
Aloha Heather! We understand and agree that the drive to Hawaii Volcano National Park is a long one! Which is why we are proud and happy to have adventure guides like Derek who are not only knowledgable about the island but who also know how to provide an unforgettable and entertaining experience on the long drive across the island! Thank you so much for joining us and we hope to see you again soon!

At every stop there was a new adventure! I treasured every part of our tour! I have two all time favorite parts of the trip: First was the black sand beach with the turtle basking in the sun and second was the lava flow glowing in the night. It was amazing to see both!

Volcano was the star

The main expectation was to see an active volcano and that was achieved. Dinner far exceeded the usual fare. We did not get as many places as expected but it was “Black Friday” and we lost time waiting. The guide was well prepared and informed.

Great adventure on the Big Island!
Rebecca_T
, Nov 2021
We had a lot of fun exploring the big island! The coffee tour was fun. If you love coffee then it is very neat to taste all the different flavors of 100% Kona coffee. Lunch that was provided was exceptional and very filling. The bakery was amazing with lots of awesome treats! The dinner was really good!! The Volcano viewing was slightly disappointing only because of weather and it was so foggy but who can control that! My husband and I went back the next day and the sights are totally worth it if you can see them! Our tour guide was AMAZING! He was really funny, a great driver, and very knowledgeable. We would recommend to our friends and go on another tour if we had the chance to!

Introduction to the Big Island
Cheryl_D
, Nov 2021
There was some confusion on scheduling that caused my wife and I a bit of stress and that is the reason I am not providing a 5 star review, but Viator bent over backwards to address the issue. Once we were connected with our tour it was great, with a knowledgeable and articulate tour guide, comfortable transportation, and a great introduction to some of the highlights of the big island. I highly recommend it.

The best of Kona!!
Theresa_C
, Oct 2021
I booked myself a last minute trip to Kona. Booked this tour 2days prior to my flight coz the previous tour cancelled but worked out perfectly for me. With zero expectations, I went to the tour. Our guide PJ showed up in a nice clean minivan equipped with everything that we need; from chargers, coffee, sodas, unlimited water, hourly snacks, packed lunch, light weight jackets, flashlights, umbrellas and more. So impressed!! PJ was incredibly knowledgeable. We were given so many historical/ geographical informations, stories, jokes, and entertainments while we drove around sites. We were never rushed, and I feel like we’ve seen the best views carefully chosen for us. The dinner was delicious as well, Fresh blackened ahi tuna so flavourful! Yum! I had so much fun! The best tour in Kona!!! Especial thanks to the wonderful group of people I’ve met that made everything extra special. 10 stars🌟🌟🌟 Mahalo PJ and Kailani Tours!!! Amazing unforgettable experience!!!
