Grant was an amazing, punctual host and the tour was well organized. They accommodated my request to see Rainbow Falls and were very reasonable with their prices as well. Grant was very understanding as I traveled with my 80yr old in-law, advising which activities or stops were

I'm apprehensive towards tours because there are a lot of tourist traps especially in popular destinations like Hawaii. Seeing the price of this tour seemed risky but it was the best decision I made on my 2 week vacation. Our guide, Grant Mitchell, was amazing. He's very

Wow maggiew445, thank you for such an amazing and detailed review. All of our tours we try and bring personalized factors to it like how our guides are so knowledgeable with the details of the island and how our transportation is Luxury Mercedes Benz Sprinter Coaches so everyone has space. We have everyone in mind when going through the different tours we have. Grant is doing an outstanding job with his tours so it is not surprising that he was able to make the tour so awesome. The Big Island does have so many different terrains, from the lava fields to the plains on the north and south end of the island then to the rainy side of the island which is Hilo and we want to make sure people coming to the island and even people that live here are able to see something new. Let us know when you are back on the beautiful Big Island, maybe you can experience some of our other tours. Mahalo, Miah

Aloha! Mahalo for joining Zane on our Deluxe Volcano Experience! Wow, what a treat to spend the day with Zane, a geologist! Zane Rocks! We are delighted to hear that you had such an amazing day with him and enjoyed being on tour with someone that knows all about lava, the volcano, and the Big Island. Zane has so much love the volcano that he can be seen on his off days hiking the back roads of the National Park. Truth be told, I think Park Rangers and the USGS even consult with him to get the latest park information. Word of mouth recommendations are the best form of advertising, so we thank you for taking the time to write a review. Our guides love to hear your feedback; especially the positive reviews! We hope to see you on your next visit to the Big Island! Miah

Aloha, and thank for for sharing your feedback with us! Our Deluxe Volcano Experience gives guests an intimate perspective, in regard to the magnitude of the 2018 eruption. By working with the local community, we are able to educate and inform guests, with a first hand account of what transpired during the eruption. We are so grateful to be able to share with guests the true essence of the island! Jim’s enduring passion for Hawaii shines through in his work, and we are so pleased to know you greatly enjoyed your time with him. Jim has been part of the Kailani team since the beginning, and he exemplifies the heart of our operation. I will be sure to share your review with him, he will be very pleased!
