We visited multiple parks, dove for a week in the pacific, tried local restaurants, and much more. Harry's tour was the most fun and interesting tour we did! If I ever make it back to Hawaii I will do the 4 hour tour. Harry's knowledge is amazing, and he takes safety very serious! Don't let the email scare you, it... More

Following reviews on Tripadviser and directly on website we took the 2 hour tour with Harry - a lifetimes worth of knowledge on lava tubes and one of the most geological adventures you will ever experience. I also bought his book on line for about $20. thru off site " Understanding Lava Tubes" which I highly recommend for any science/geology/engineer... More

This was truly different and exceptional! Harry had such vast geological and historical knowledge and was extremely passionate about the cave. The cave was amazing, ranging from about 5ft to 55ft ceilings. Harry was great at conveying the knowledge clearly and was a very comfortable guide. I'd highly recommend the 4hr tour because I hadn't seen enough at 2 hours.... More

I have never been in a lava tube and thought this was so cool. It was like walking on a lava river in a lava pipe frozen in time. Definitely recommend.

My 12yo son, my husband and I took the 2 hour tour. What a wonderful experience! We learned a ton about the cave systems on the island and generally had a great time.

This was a hidden gem for us. We really loved learning all about the lava tubes. You can tell the guy who runs and owns this is very passionate about sharing this with people. Totally worth the trip.

Visited Kazumura during the 17th International Symposium on Volcanic Caves for the four hour tour and was truly impressed with the lava tube itself, with Harry's thorough knowledge of the cave and its ecosystem and geology, and his passion for preserving and protecting this unique and very special environment. Even as an experienced caver of 20+ years I still found... More

We did the four hour tour and it was fabulous! The guide is a fountain of knowledge and entertainment. The lava tube is very impressive - we learned a ton about lava formations and many interesting cave features and anecdotes. Great quality and surprisingly inexpensive. Highly recommended!

First trip to Hawaii and the Big Island and this is definately one of the most interesting places I have ever visited. I recommend the four-hour tour, its worth the extra time and effort to see the place where the tour ends (I wont ruin the surprise). Not too cold like other caves since its actually a lava tube, but... More

I really appreciate that Mr. Kazumura is all about preserving this very special lava tube. He wants to make sure that it isn't commercialized, but rather kept in its natural state for those that visit. The tour was educational and interesting and the experience was just fascinating. The lava tube is enormous in sections and tight quarters in others. We... More
