I went on this tour expecting to see an active volcano but I didn't. It was an extremely long day flying out to the island of Hilo. We stopped at an Orchard Factory which I wasn't interested in and we stopped at the Macadamia Nut Factory. Again I had no interest in stopping at these places. We also stopped at... More

My daughter and I booked this trip through Kapohokine Tours. It included a trip to a Kona Coffee Plantation and Punalu 'u Bake Shop. Our guide Billy was great. Very knowledgeable and kind. Picked us up at 11:30 am and dropped us off at 11:00pm at night. Long day! Honestly would have enjoyed more time exploring at Volcano Park rather... More

We did not take a commercial tour but choose to drive ourselves. Part of the Crater Rim road was closed just at the Jagger Museum. There is another entrance to the rim road just after the entry station to your left. If you decide to drive down the mountain to view the arch of solid lava into the sea it... More

One of the most amazing things I have ever seen! The Volcano was erupting while we were there, I have never seen anything like it. Simply mind blowing!

We received an answer to our requests for reservations promptly and were given good direction.We were met at the cruise port and as soon as I met MaryLou,her husband Ken and their son-all tour guides with this company- I knew we...

We had the most amazing experience ever! We opted to fly with doors-off over the volcano rift with pilot Luka. I think we were both initially a little uneasy as we took off and flew higher and higher but Luka totally put us at ease and before we knew it we were enthralled with the wonder and beauty of this...

My parents took a cruise through the Hawaiian Islands for their 50th anniversary with their first stop in Hilo. I did some research to find them a small, personable tour of the Big Island at a reasonable price. There is a reason why Marylou's gets stellar reviews across the board. Marylou, her husband, Ken, and their son, Kyle, went above... More

We took this tour from C Big Island Tours. Our guide, Edmond, was just fantastic!! We went all over the Big Island seeing such sights as Rainbow Falls, Mauna Loa nut factory (where we had incredible ice cream), Black Beach and of course the volcanic rock, lava tube, and the volcano itself. Edmond was a great driver and so very,... More

Didn't use a tour company, visited Volcano National Park on our own. Lots of hiking trails, plenty of information provided at the park visitor centre as well as at the Jaggar Museum. The Thurston Lava Tube was awesome. We walked down to Kilauea Iki through the rain forest to the crater and across the still steaming lava lake. Definitely work... More
