My teenage son and I wanted to spend some time touring Volcano National Park on the Big Island and thought a bike ride tour would give us a chance to do that. We are not avid bikers but do pedal occasionally. But the Bike Volcano group makes sure all level riders are comfortable. They spend some time getting your gear and equipment right for you and then make sure everyone in the group is ready and safe to go. Our guide was Brendan and he did an AMAZING job. He is a recent geology graduate so he really knows (and loves) "rocks" and lava. We stopped often and heard all about the sights and history at that location. They fed us snacks at almost every stop and provided water with every bike. We did some uphill pumping but most of the ride was downhill. At the end of the tour, we decided to go back to the National Park and visit the spots we missed -- and discovered Brendan had taken us to all the best parts of the park during our 4-hours with him! So it was a really thorough tour of the Park, along with a very knowledgeable guide. This tour was close to the end of our two-week vacation (which included some really impressive scuba diving), so when my son said this tour was in his top three favorite things we did on this vacation, I knew it was a WINNER!
