Visiting a lava tube cave was something special. And we had a good guide Megan, a geologist. She told us a lot about the different lava formations and the history of the cave. This lava tube is already very old, the volcano eruption was around...More

The site is very cool, but our tour had 24 people in it. The tours before and after ours had far fewer people and that impacted our enjoyment. The guide was good and knowledgeable, but he continuously indulged a few annoying 5-7 year old kids...More
