We chose this tour because we were staying in downtown Hilo and did not want to drive all the way to Kona to join the more popular tour companies there. But we were not disappointed and loved our guide Daniel, who was extremely friendly and open to questions. The large tour van was in great shape and there was secure parking at Arnott's Lodge for our rental car. This company also picks up people at all Hilo hotels. No food included in tour price, but we stopped at a 7 Eleven near our Rainbow Falls photo stop that had plenty of cheap food and drink options. Daniel provided hot cocoa at the Mauna Kea visitor center after returning from the summit. BTW, the visitor center has a public microwave oven for visitors to use free of charge. Mahalo, Daniel and Arnott Tours, for a great experience.
