I did the 7 nights/6 days camping tour in October 2014. I was impressed by the versality of the tour. We saw green, black, white and brown beaches. Cliff jumping, snorkeling as well as taking walks at the Hawaii Volcanoe National Park were awesome. Hilo and Kona were able to be explored too. Our guide Kati told us lots of... More

Just back from the highlight of our trip thus far. An amazing day spent exploring the Volcano area and everything along the way. I can't recommend this tour enough. The small group size was interactive, informative and lots of fun. From walking through laval tubes to hearing tales about the history, religion and local customs of old and new Hawaii-... More

Dominik was our guide and was extraordinary in his knowledge and the science behind all of the areas we visited. Plants, types of lava, history of the eruptions, and Hawaii lore and stories. Green sea turtles, Ne Ne geese and the glow of lava. Great day and worth every dollar.

First off, Thanks to Katie for an excellent day out seeing the sights on the Big Island. She is extremely knowledgeable of the local areas that we toured and was over the top when it came to the volcano. Keeping our 17, 15 and 7 year old kids engaged for the day is no easy task.

On the last day of our honeymoon, we decided to do this 12 hour excursion. Well worth it! Katie talked about folklore stories, pointed out different plants, local hotspots she liked, and spotted the Nene bird for us! Who knew they were endangered which made me appreciate it more! Otherwise I would've been ignorant and assumed it was just a... More
