Harry, the tour guide and owner of the property where the cave entrance is located, gave the 5 of us a fantastic tour. He is very knowledgeable of the cave and tells you where and how he obtained the knowledge of lava tubes. That is right, this is not a typical cave. It's a lava tube. You get to see... More

This is a review of the easiest 2 hour cave tour offered by Kazumura Cave Tours. We have been on about 20 cave tours in our travels and hands down--this was probably the best cave tour ever. However--to enjoy the cave tour you must be: 1. Not afraid of heights and have decent agility--I'm attaching a picture of the sturdy... More

I left the cave feeling completely overwhelmed, both mentally and physically. There are myriad lava forms to wonder at, and Harry is a very knowledgeable guide. Self-taught, he has an appreciation of the fluid dynamics of lava flows and the formation of lava forms that is impressive. He left my head swimming with information. What was especially heartening is that... More

This tour was just what we were looking for. It was cool for our teenagers but would also be interesting for younger children that can hike a bit and climb ladders alone. Harry tailors the tour to as much or as little information as you want on the tour. Equipment was provided. Easy to find but off the beaten path.... More

The lava/cave was great, it was located on the Aloha Crater Lodge grounds. Real cool lava tube. Incredible cave. Loved the hike in & out

First rate experience. Harry's rappel tower is completed sans a few decorations and should be well suited for training the neophytes. Thank you

This tour was a great experience. The lava tube that we saw on this tour was a million times more impressive than the one that's open to the public in the national park - it was much larger and more pristine because it isn't as heavily touristed. Harry was a good guide - he was clearly very passionate about lava... More

First, as everyone has said, follow directions to get there. It's not a big deal if you do. Second, you need to book through 'mom'. She's a hoot. That aside, we did the four hour tour. The price is up a bit but is worth every penny. I would do it again. Harry is very knowledgeable and cares very much... More

Well worth the price and a must do. We wish we booked the 4 hour tour. We learned a lot from Harry, he is very knowledgable and truly enjoys what he does; Eloise is sweet too!! I took a bunch of pictures that had amazing colors.

Without repeating the same things other reviewers have mentioned - this was a great experience. Harry was an expert guide and we learned more in two hours than multiple visits to the island. A few things to recognize: 1) This is a primitive cave, and you will be climbing up/down multiple sturdy ladders and walking on ledges and tight areas.... More
