Our family of four spent an entire day with Tyler hiking the crater in and around HVNP. We began our tour at around 2 pm and ended well past 8:30 pm. Tyler was full of information and very patient with the kids. We booked the tour with Haley who was extremely helpful in setting up everything and even gave us recommendations on stops along the coast when we drop up to HVNP from Waikoala. We did a 3.5 mile hike of one of the crates, visited the lava tubes, the museum and an art gallery during the tour. My only complaint was that my kids were very keen on seeing the actual lava flow. I had included this on my initial request with Haley, however, I kept thinking "we will get to it later" during the trip. We ended up not seeing any lava flow. Not sure if they did not plan it because they thought it may be a difficult hike for our kids (12 and 9)? I would clarify expectations from the beginning and discuss. Overall, a wonderful, informational experience for all.
