We loved this tour. Lori our tour guide was fantastic. We were traveling with a family group. We were picked up outside the cruise pier in Hilo. Lori was waiting for us with a sign with our name on it. We were on a private tour (8 people)
6 adults, 2 children ages 5 and 7) She took us to Rainbow Falls, Vocolcano National Park, Thurston Lava Tube. After a hike down a rainforest trail into the volcano, We even roasted marshmallows on the floor of the volcano over a steam vent. On the way up to the Park, we stopped for coffee and she purchased a local treat for us to try (spam and rice, wrapped up like sushi) interesting. She also purchased two small bottles for the boys to pour into the volcano to appease Pele the fire goddess. She was so informative and was just great with the children. The tour was about 7 hours but she will tailor the tour to whatever you want to do. I highly recommend Lori and Vavoom tours.
