Scott Bier runs an amazing, personalized, great value tour of the Big Island. I came to Hawaii to see Hawaii's amazing volcanoes and the result of ongoing volcanic activity. Scott's day-long tour was an efficient, quick and informative way to see this large island. Scott is a friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide, with a life-long passion for volcanoes. Scott met me at my hotel before setting off early in the morning in his "Volcano Van" for a day-long exploration of the volcanic activity of the Big Island. He even supplied a picnic lunch and returned me to my hotel at the end of our trip. Walking across the base of a volcanic crater in constant rain was a memorable experience. This was such a great tour I am bringing my wife and daughter back to tour with Scott again in 2013. Those interested in a personalized volcano experience should join Scott!

The Volcano Van, more specifically Scott, was funny, knowledgable, and entertaining. This personalized tour is great for all ages!! My mother in law (73), our kids (6/8) and us ( mid thirties) had a wonderful time!

We would highly recommend this tour!!!
It is a must on the Big Island!

Wowee!! Thoroughly recommended. I elected to do this trip solo as the tour I chose was 12 hours long so I was able to choose to stop for as little or long as I wanted without having to inconvenience others. There are a few tours to choose but I chose the Big Volcano Adventure and it certainly was that. It was a fun filled day hiking and driving, visiting various points of interest and wonderment. A fabulous lunch was provided with drinks as required also provided. Scott, who was in charge of the day, has a wonderful personality and very knowegeable. He was happy to answer and discuss my questions. All in All an amazing day. If you want a great day out - get in the bright red Volcano Van and go. You won't be disappointed!!!
