The Kilauea Caldera is a massive crater encircled by plumes of sulfuric smoke, and the signs of lava destruction are everywhere. The lava flows are constantly shifting, and our tour takes you as close as possible to see them. On our tour, you will walk through an actual lava tube which include extensive lava flows and Hawaii's unique black sand beaches. Later, you’ll pass through lush rainforest as our guide points out many native tropical plants, such as red ginger and ginseng. Our tours take in 10 major Hilo attractions ensuring you have a spectacular day in Hilo. « less

This is an excellent tour of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. We were picked up at the port and drove to the National Park, stopping along the way for photo opportunities at Rainbow Falls. Our driver kept us entertained with information about the island, the volcano and the island's legends. The Park is surreal with the steam vents here and there... More

We were picked up in the port by Cindy, she drove us outside the port and switched us to a smaller van. This van they say is a 14 passenger van, might be 14 passenger for kids, but not for adults cruising. Needless to say, we could not fit into this van, so we were given the opportunity to rent...

We were a group of tourists under a company sponsored trip in Hawaii. We went for a visit to the National Volcano park on the big island of Hawaii on Sep 29, 2013. The scenes in the park and at the waterfalls are gorgeous. We were so lucky to have Mr. Grant from Kapoho Kine Adventures as our guide throughout... More

I was concerned about taking this tour on the last day of my big island visit regarding my luggage. The shuttle bus had a locking compartment in the back of the bus for luggage - no reason for concern! I would recommend bringing a buttpack with a few drinks and snacks because this is a long, relaxing, scenic day. Don't... More

The itineray we had covered the volcanos, lava tube, a waterfall, the black sand beach, orchid and japaneese gardens and big island candies and mauno lau nut factory. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable... More

We started our excursion on a tour bus taking us to their Volcano National park. We truly saw an amazing site with an acutual active volcano. During the day it is all steam and at night you see the lava flow. They have a museum on this location, where you can actually see the different forms of lava rock and... More

Expensive, but it's really worth it!!! A fantastic show of the nature that I'll bring in my eyes and in my heart for all my life. Something that you can't find in other places in the world, if you visit Hawaii you can't miss it!
