I was nervous going on this cave tour esp. after reading some of the reviews and looking at the pictures. But we decided to go and my husband and I were the only two people on this tour! Our tour guide was very interesting, knowledgeable and protective towards his guests and his cave. It was amazing to have the owner... More

This was a very unique experience. I learned a lot from the tour guide (and owner of the property). He was willing to take me solo for a tour which was very generous. He has spent a lot of time studying and learning about the lava tube. This is a far better experience than the Thurston tube in Volcano Park.... More

Very interesting tour and good tour guide. This tour is for fit people who like geology and cool rock formations. Not good for claustrophobics or vertigo sufferers. Need to reserve in advance.

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
