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.

What a great experience! We stayed at the Volcano House and could see activity of Volcano all night. This cannot be seen during the day.

We booked with KapohoKine adventures again, and at the suggestion of our hotel planner, we booked the driving tour. It started at 11:20 am, and finished about 11 pm. The tour included a driver with a van, and we picked up other passengers. Our driver was amazing, he was EXTREMELY knowledgeable. This tour included atrip to an organic coffee farm... More

I booked Marylou's Tours online several weeks before our February excursion. She responded very quickly with details and price ($75 per person). I had read many glowing reviews before booking and felt confident that I had made the right choice. We were met at the port in Hilo. There were 3 vans with Marylou, Ken and Kyle waiting for us....

We went with the Discover Hawaii Tours group from Oahu for the one day eco tour. Because it was raining throughout the day we didn't see much, which was quite disappointing. However our tour guide YB made the tour memorable. He was so friendly and really knew the island very well. I believe he went above and beyond to try... More

From the moment I called to discuss the details of booking this tour, to the hug at the end of the day, Marylou's Big Island Tours surpassed my expectations! Marylou, her husband, Ken and her son, Kyle work together to provide the best possible Island experience. In total, they own three 7-passenger vans which they use to accommodate from one... More

We went on a tour with Warren Costa on February 3, 2015 and it was wonderful. From the lava tube to the hike up to the top of the crater, it was such an amazing and informative day. Warren is extremely well educated, and we learned and saw things that I don't think we would have with any other tour... More

As this was our first time in Hawaii, I did a lot of research and settled on booking tours of Hilo and Kona with Mary Lou's Tours. This is a family run company and they have three GM vans that will hold up to 7, driven by Mary Lou, Ken (husband) and Kyle (son). They have a set itinerary or... More

My wife and I spent both days of our cruise trip being driven around the big island by Kyle from Marylous big island bus tours. Both days were great. Where we went was done in complete consultation with Kyle. As a group we decided what we wanted to see and do . I was keen to see the recent lava... More
