Mind blowing

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 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 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

We had a tour just my husband and I with Warren and it was a highlight of our Hawaii trip! He picked us up from Hilo airport and dropped us off for the flight back to Honolulu. Took us straight to the volcano national park not wasting a minute. His explanation of the eruptions was knowledgeable. And took us away... More

It's very interesting and scenic, but pick your spots. The entire tour can be very lengthy. It's also much cooler here than at sea level. Bring a jacket. The Lava Caves are very cool.
