Our tour takes you to view the largest and most active volcano in the world, the Kilauea Caldera. The Kilauea Caldera is a massive crater encircled by plumes of sulfuric smoke, and the signs of lava destruction are everywhere. The lava flows are constantly shifting, and our tour takes you as close as possible to see them. On our tour, you will walk through an actual lava tube which include extensive lava flows and Hawaii's unique black sand beaches. Later, you’ll pass through lush rainforest as our guide points out many native tropical plants, such as red ginger and ginseng. Our tours take in 10 major Hilo attractions ensuring you have a spectacular day in Hilo.

This tour was great. It's an extremely long day if you're travelling from Oahu but well worth it. The tour guide was very informative and kept the commentary going to whole day, even though she was clearly suffering a sore throat. The sites you see are another thing again - lava rocks everywhere, the volcano itself, the lava tube, steam... More

We booked an all day Big Island Volcano tour which departed from Honolulu. It was by far the best day of our 8 day Hawaiian holiday. A very long day, starting with a 5am pick up from our hotel, through to a 10pm drop off at our hotel, but it was worth it. We were a small group of 6... More

Our second stop was a Lava tube. That was really cool and I have great pictures. Again we were there about 25 minutes. We stopped at... More

This is a full day tour, be prepared to wake early wake up and return late, but believe me its all worth it. Our trip was seamless, hotel pickup to the airport where our boarding passes where waiting. A short 45 min flight to the Big Island where we were met by our driver / guide Rob, who is one... More

We did this tour (being picked up 0645 from Ilikai) and although it is a long day, it's both time and money very well spent. Roberts meet greet and transfer at all points. Our driver from Hilo, Hank was both knowledgable and personable. 'Lunch' is approx 1500 at the Lava Ripock Cafe. It was phoned ahead before we arrived and... More

During the summer of 2014, my family and I took a cruise around Hawaii on the Norwegian Cruise Line. At each port of the different islands, we did various excursions of the volcanoes, waterfalls, and scenery. One tour we took was the Big Island Volcano and Waterfalls Tour in Hilo, Hawaii. The Big Island Volcano and Waterfalls tour was given... More

Be prepared for a very big day if you are travelling from Oahu... The day was awesome and very informative! We saw a lot of great things, while on the tour, the highlight was lunch with their main volcano as the back drop! The tour guide made sure we had enough time to see what the Big Island had to...
