we wanted to discover the region surrounding Hilo and found the itinerary proposed by Hawaii volcano tours really interesting. We chose the tour called ' the puna experience'. Driving along the Hamakua coast we stopped first at the fantastic Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden. this garden is the best we have seen in the islands, a must for anyone. From there... More

My husband and I were staying on the Kona side of the Big Island for our honeymoon. Instead of taking our rental car and spending 2-3 days exploring the volcanoes and the Hilo side of the island, we preferred having a guide show us around all of the "hot-spots". Based on reviews, we went with Marylou's Big Island Guided Tours... More

This was the main thing I wanted to do on my trip to Hawaii, I had booked 2 weeks prior and was hoping it would be good, in fact the whole day was way beyond what I expected. If you go Polynesian and you are lucky enough to have Laura as your guide, you will have a great experience. I... More

My girlfriend and I booked a last minute trip to the big island from Oahu and called Hawaii Volcano Tours to set up a tour. Despite suggesting on the website that we book two weeks in advance, they set up a tour for us for the next day with no extra charge. We flew into Hilo, had breakfast in town,... More

Mary Lou is one of a kind and was a wonderful find. We spent one day with Mary Lou in Hilo (private tour) and the next day with her husband, Ken, in Kona with another couple from our Celebrity Solstice cruise. The couple just adores each other and both are determined to provide their guests with a day filled with... More

We had a small group in a tour van. Our guide, John, was very knowledgeable, entertaining, and attentive. This was a full day tour, and we feel like it was a good value for the price.

The other reviewers were 100% right about this company. Marylou was our tour guide and what a wonderful adventure it turned out to be. There were four of us in the group and it was an action packed day from beginning to end. The tour lasted 7 hours and the time flew by. Our group was interested in seeing and... More

We recently did the Roberts Grand Circle Island tour and were very impressed. Our Driver/Tour leader Ed was excellent and an expert on the history and traditions of this area.We would rather have spent less time at the chocolate factory and more at the volcano area, however this is a big island to cover in the day and Ed did...

We stayed on Maui and did the day trip to the big island with Discover Hawaiian Tours. Visiting the Volcano National Park was awesome, but doing the tour from Maui made for a VERY long day. The problem is, it didn't have to be as long as it was. Pros: -Our travel guide was fantastic. His name was YB and... More
