Marylou took our family of four (with 2 young girls aged 7 and 5) out for a day in Hilo and we saw so many wonderful things. Starting with the volcano/museum, and then showed us a lovely short walk from a lookout to the Thurston lava tube - kids found it really easy. Then we went on to a macadamia nut farm and gardens for a late lunch and onto a coffee roasters for a quick tour of their facilities which we loved. I'd recommend bringing some snacks for morning tea and the morning is packed with not much opportunity for stopping, but we had such an amazing day overall. Marylou even offered to take us afterwards to see a black sand beach and waterfalls, but the kids had had enough by this time, so she was really flexible. Van in great condition and comfortable too. Thanks again Marylou.
