Our tour started with a private guided hike through lava fields to Kilauea. Mark was great at providing information and answering questions. The lava fields look like a different planet! The lava is black but has glasslike slivers so they are very reflective. Arrived at...More

Mark was a great guide. He took us to see out-of-the-way spots like a lava tube, beaches (where we saw sea turtles), and a local outdoor restaurant. We hiked a couple miles to see a lava firehose. We could see lava flowing from a cliff...More

This tour is far too long - almost everything before lunch could be left off (parks, orchid farms, macadamia plantations) as what everyone actually wants to see is the volcanoes! The brochure says that 'viewing of molten lava IS NOT guaranteed' but what they should...More

Kona has a lot to offer. Even the Big Island is small and from Kona you can take day trips to Waipo Valley, Volcanoes, south point and Hilo. Make sure you take a snorkeling tour and swim with the manta rays.

I wouldn't take the time and expense to fly to the big island and take the tour. The tour is great if you are already there but not worth flying over there for it.
