Absolutely loved this tour! Our Tour guide was just wonderful and very informative about the local area, history of Hawaii and its traditions. He went out of his way to make our tour very enjoyable. There are only 5 stars here to rate this guide, would give him 10 stars!

Take this tour: real HOT steaming fissures, the smell of sulphur, real recent lava flows, real accounts from live actual residents about the 2018 volcano eruption and their personal photos! This is THE tour to feel the true power and devastation of a volcano and how it impacts peoples’ lives! We had no idea this tour existed until, by chance, New Way Horizon Travel offered a free shuttle to the Hilo Farmer’s Market from the cruise ship port to the farmers’ market and I asked about the 2018 eruption event - we are sooo glad we did! This is no doubt the real volcano experience people want but never knew still exists. A few other big kudos: 1. Price-wise the tour is on par with other half day excursions BUT a significant portion of the $ goes towards the residences devastated by the eruption to help rebuild and recover. 2. Our tour guide, Brent, was in a word AWESOME - he was the same person who shuttled us from the ship, simply informed without the hard sell, even went out of his way and provided a lift to and from a local restaurant back to the ship after the tour (since the tour spanned lunchtime) - first class all the way! I’m sort of annoyed that our cruise company had NO information on this tour nor had anything close to equivalent. This NEEDS to be on anyone’s itinerary who wants to experience true, live volcanic activity and not just some dry narrative and grainy pictures about stuff that happened decades ago. Obviously this type of tour is hard to scale so, should this review result in a massive amount of interest, my apologies but, given the important stories that need to be told, that’s a good problem to have :).

Me and my wife visited Big Island on October 2019. I'm a geologist and I wanted to go to fissure 8 but was very difficult to find tours there, after many researches we found this tour. Our guide Carey Mills picked us up on time and according to our needs, so we started this very beautiful experience. The tour was simply amazing we saw exactly what we wondered, and more than we expected! We spoke directly with people of Leilani that told us their experiences of those days. We walked on one of several fissure opened on May 2018. We dicovered a lot of interesting things and saw incredible landscapes. Carey told us that a part of money we paid will be transferred to owners that lost everything so it is also socially useful. So if you'll visit Big Island DO NOT miss the opportunity to help and learn! Grazie!!!!

Skyler and the team provided a first hand view of the destruction of the most recent lava flow from 2018. The two properties owners from Leilani Estates provided a first hand view of the efforts made to try and save their homes. The trip out to view the newly created beach, the farmers market, the painted church and the new ground for the Hawaiian culture centre completed a most unique excursion. I would highly recommend this trip over any other to see what the power of lava creates!!

I took this tour two weeks ago when my cruise was docked in Hilo. The guide picked us up right at the ship, was very professional and friendly, and taught us all sorts of Hawaiian history on the way to Leilani Estates. Once we arrived there, we were met by some of the homeowners who had lost their homes to the lava flow of 2018. They were incredibly welcoming, had tons of great information to share with us, along with pictures and personal stories. We were able to walk over the cooled lava on different properties and got to see how the fissures tore some of the lots apart. This tour truly opened our eyes to how destructive the lava flow actually was. I recommend this tour to anyone considering it, you won't regret it.
