We took this trip with Vince who picked us up from the Pride of America cruise ship. Even though the weather wasn't the best that day, Vince made the best of the day for us. If you're looking for a guided adventure of Volcanoes National Park including seeing Lava Tubes and craters, this is the way to do it!

We went in Feb, my husband and I. It was an amazing experience. The guides really tailored the experience to our group's needs. We were able to see some amazing lava flows and the guides were able to scope out the best areas away from all the other tourists so it really felt like a private experience! We would definitely...

We did a family cruise (NCL) and booked a private day tour with Lavaland during our stop in Hilo with our children (6,6 and 11) and my mom who is in her 70's. Luana was a FANTASTIC tour guide! Not only was she super attentive to my mom getting in and out of the van, she even assisted my mom... More

My husband, 2 daughters (9 + 12 years old) and I took the Volcanoes National Park tour through Lavaland. Our guide Luana was awesome- very funny, informative, never made us feel rushed. The tour was very small and we were able to see a lot more than one would on the larger tour buses. We spent a full day touring... More

We chose the bike/ hike tour to see the lava. It was awesome. The tour guide was friendly and reliable. The lava was hot, but the tour guide would keep us safe and find the right way to get close to the lava.

Read the details in Bregina28's review - it has excellent detail. Except I thought our guide told us her name was Beatrice. Her dad is a co-owner of the company and lives right there on the lava. Beatrice was so knowledgeable about the lava and volcanoes in general. She shared so many details with us. She made our bike and... More

When in Hilo, one must see volcanoes. We were in Hilo for the day as part of our cruise of the Hawaiian islands, and this tour company seemed like a strong option for seeing volcanoes and getting a bit of education as well. Malia was extremely helpful and responsive in answering my questions and helping me to select the right... More

March 3, 2017, I took the Bike/Hike tour to see the lava flow into the ocean and hunt for surface lava. It was my second time to the Big Island, and I wasn't able to see surface lava the first time (but I tried looking myself). I saw that the volcano was having good activity and flow, so I decided...

My parents, husband and I joined the Lava Glow Tour. The tour guide was very knowledgeable, answered so many questions we had, was very friendly, and took very good care of my mother the entire time who has trouble walking on uneven grounds. At the end of the tour, once it got dark out, we got to see the live... More
