Our family took in this bike tour (2 preteens, 1 teenager) during a trip to the Big Island. We all enjoyed the sights, but my wife and I left with the feeling that it simply wasn't value for the amount of money put out for this tour. The guides (Pretty -- knew lots about the local customs and history, and... More

The private guide and individual attention to detail make the "tour" great. Add 15 miles of bike riding and it was an excellent day. Auntie Pretty and Janet make a great team. Their local knowledge, education and experience provide a balance of history and culture. Most of the ride was on paved roads, which is great for the casual bikers... More

We took the April 2, 2014 Fly and Bike tour. The entire experience was awesome. From BikeVolcano handling our flight needs including the shuttle from the airport to the bike meeting area, and on to the tour.....excellent! Meghan was our tour guide and was terrific! She was extremely knowledgeable and provided a lot more information than we would have ever... More

You can accomplish the full day trip offered by this company under 2 hours by car or 3 hours by walking in the Volcano National Park for free. It will cost you a whole valuable day from your Hawaii vacation, and the biking part is on the public paved roads mostly downhill. Nothing extra you could not do it in... More

The reviewer's description of Bike Volcano's Full Day Bike Adventure is incorrect. The Full Day Bike Adventure is a GUIDED Bicycle Tour of Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park. We will provide you with all of your equipment, lunch (a deli fresh sandwich, dill pickle, chips, a cookie, and and a beverage), snacks, water, a Professional Interpretive Guide, and Van Support (which...

Janet was an excellent guide, really knew her stuff. The bikes were good, just like mine at home. It was rainy and misted on us the whole time, but that just made it more fun! An excellent way to experience the volcano. Auntie Pretty set up the bikes excellently and made sure we were safe at all times. Would like... More

My girlfriend and I wanted to see the volcanos in Hawaii and we both love bicycle trips. Perfect match with Bike Volcano. Our two lady tour guides were terrific. Very knowledgable of volcanic activity and setting up bikes for each of our group of 10 riders. The ride was 15 miles, but mostly downhill, Thank God. Just a few minor... More

I'll just second what MyAbundance wrote. Ezster was all that one could ask for in a guide for this sort of activity, and we really appreciated her scientific background. The ride was a great introduction to the park and the local ecology. Bikes were all kept in extremely good shape mechanically, and the support provided by the SAG driver Nani... More

Our cycling guide was awesome! A bit cautious, understandably considering her liabilities but a few hills I just wanted to bomb down. That said, she is ridiculously knowledgeable about the island, the volcanoes, the culture, and all of the birds. Nani was the van driver that followed for swag and she was really nice and kept everyone going. I highly... More

The bike trip was awesome. Period. Great way to see the park and learn more about the volcanoes, flora, fauna, etc...guides were very friendly and knowledgeable. Having said that, I had no idea what I was doing having never really been road biking before. You have to ride single file most of the time, and go relatively fast since it's... More

Meghann and Pretty gave us an amazing tour! We were a little concerned about the rain and wondered if we would still be able to do the tour, but it stopped on and off and made the ride even more adventurous. Our guides were so knowledgeable about the everything. We learned a lot!! The ride was great; we had plenty... More
