I really appreciate that Mr. Kazumura is all about preserving this very special lava tube. He wants to make sure that it isn't commercialized, but rather kept in its natural state for those that visit. The tour was educational and interesting and the experience was just fascinating. The lava tube is enormous in sections and tight quarters in others. We... More

Harry is a very knowledgable, self-taught expert on lava tubes, this tube in particular. Having read previous reviews, I signed my family up for the 4 hour tour. Probably a mistake with a hungry wife and two teenagers whose tolerance for learning on vacation is limited. Harry taught us a lot about lava tube geology--things that I used throughout my... More

Fairly difficult entry then only short path that is clear of lava rock piles. We were down there for a long time as we went both directions over the piles of lava rock. I lost both soles on my shoes! Only $10 (for equip/advice) so interesting for age appropriate, fit people but not much to explore for those not willing... More

This was a fabulous tour. Our guide was really knowledgable, and has a wonderful dry humour. We were a little nervous at first when he locked the cave door behind us (to keep people out, not to keep us in), then said something about always telling someone where you to find you if You've gone caving (we hadn't).

My husband and I did the 2 hour tour which I gather is just scraping the surface of this vast lava tube system but it was absolutely incredible! I am a bit afraid of heights, so climbing up and down the PVC pipe ladders was a bit unnerving for me but definitely felt way more comfortable by half-way through the... More

Fantastic lava tube and extremely knowledgeable guide. Will definitely be back in a few years to go on the 6 hour tour.

We really enjoyed the trip to the Kazumura cave tour. Henry, our tour guide, was incredibly well-versed in all things lava tube. He spent a few hours teaching about how the tube is formed, and you could tell he loves the cave. You need a bit of agility to get up and down ladders, but it is not strenuous in... More

We explored Kazamura Cave with the Aloha Crater Lodge. We loved hearing the history and seeing the details of the cave without being rushed. Shannon was very knowledgable!

Harry is a fascinating person and the value per dollar cannot be beat. If you want to expand your geeky side, you get a lot of info, and it's an easy walk and climb in the cave/tube. Really a pleasant experience and one that my kids and I enjoyed
