Splendiferous Volcanic Tour
Randy was very welcoming, personable and considerate of our needs and abilities. He shared tons of valuable information which made me enjoy the tour so much more than I ever anticipated. I am flabbergasted with how “clean” the lava rocks are and they leave no trace of dirty hands! Randy took lots of photos in addition to our own. Loved the lava’s reflective colors and love story behind it all! Great trip! Highly recommend this!!

Knowledgable Guide
We really like the experience. They have benz sprinter which is big enough for a group of 10 at least and fit us 7 comfortably. The car is clean. The guide is really knowledgable about all the volcano and lava stuff as well as the geometry, so the kids got some education during the tour as well. The only thing we miss is that the volcano is not active during our visit, but we can always come back:)

Jill is the best local tour guide!!
Loved the volcano national park tour! Jill, our tour guide, was fantastic. She was born and raised on the island and told many stories of growing up with erupting volcanos. Jill also took care of me when I fell on the volcano walkway. She cleaned the wound and bandaged me up. After the tour she dropped me and my husband off at Walmart so I could buy more bandages. Mahalo Jill! You’re the best! I will never forget your kindness.
