Its a long day if you do the valcano tour! 12 hrs folks so you will be dead tired at the end of the day. If you have young kids...Think twice. Best advice? Take your camera!!!!
My daughter was 10 & it got a bit much. Worth it but,grumpy!!! Bring a jacket & hiking shoes! The lava field is just that & has hot spots.
And taking The Saddle? Car sickness happens to the best of us,lol. Its getting more expensive this yrear too,so maybe look around? Oh & we saw NO lava. Was a huge bummer!!! We loved the experience thoroughly & got to see the island. But for the price next time we might just rent a Jeep & go explore on our own. Aloha.
