This was an ok lava tour but I feel it is somewhat dangerous. If you are not in good shape and sure footed, I wouldn't take the chance. If you are and are also really into caves particularly lava caves, maybe go for it. 😊

This tour exceeded our expectations! We did the 4 hour tour and we saw WAY more than we expected to see. Our guide, the property owner, was so knowledgable and gave us a lot of interesting information about the history of the caves, how different tubes are formed, and what lives in them. Definitely a great activity if you are... More

My husband surprised me with a weekend getaway to the Big Island for my birthday. Since this wasn’t our first trip to the island, he wanted to do things we hadn’t done before. He found the Kazumura Cave Tours online ($30/person, cash only). It is the longest and deepest lava tube in the world. We did the 2-hour tour that... More

This was such a great experience For my husband, son and I.... We were in awe of the height and lows of the tubes, the formations. We were a little apprehensive when we walked in and Harry closed and locked the door behind us but we soon discovered how spectacular this place is. We did the four hour tour and... More

Harry is genuinely enthusiastic about the cave and not just going through the motions of the same old tour. Our tour lasted 1/2hr longer than it should because we got into so many discussions about what we were seeing and he did not mind that at all.

This was an amazing and very informative tour of the most impressive lava tube in Hawaii. Our guide Harry was very knowledgeable and taught us so much about volcanoes. It was really helpful as we toured the rest of the island to think of all he had taught us. You really should do this your if you're in the big... More

This lava tube is much more interesting than the Thurston Lava Tube. If you have any interest in geology I highly recommend this tour. Harry literally wrote the book about features in lava tubes and is passionate about sharing the treasures to be found here. His sharp eye noticed a tiny centepede and a cave cricket during our tour. My... More

The lava tube tour is an amazing experience ! Harry's explanation were very interesting, it was like a geology lesson. This is a very unique nature wonder to visit, and it is very accessible.

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
