Our group of 8 were taken on a wonderful tour of areas south of Hilo including the Punalu'u Black Sand Beach on 15 October 2013. The Volcano National Park was closed that day. The tour was informative, interesting and made especially memorable because of our Tour Guide Lawrence who did a great job!! He was the first tour guide to arrive at the pick up point, near the Pride of America (Norwegian line) ship and was happy to answer questions from the many "tour attendees" in a friendly and engaging style, many thanks Lawrence !!
