An outstanding introduction to volcano plumbing by a thoughtful, knowledgeable and friendly guide. The behaviour of lava is well illustrated in the subterranean walk, making it easy to imagine the conditions of formation. Anyone interested in volcanoes will find this tour fascinating. Highly recommended.

My husband and I did the 4 hour “Pit Room Tour” with Harry – just us and him. Having found our way from Volcano to his home following his mother’s instructions, we were kitted out with hard hats, glove and torches before following a short track through the trees to the entrance to the lava tube. As other reviewers have... More

This tour makes you feel like a real cave explorer! There's no other light source in the cave besides your flashlights, and the guide only takes down six people at a time. Harry gives you a ton of info and points out so many amazing aspects of the lava tube.You can feel comfortable asking any questions you have because there... More

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

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
