Great Volcano Island Tour
Our tour guide, Bryce, provided a great experience. He's energetic, engaging and quite knowledgeable on a multitude of Hawaiian topics as well as others. Tour van was clean, quiet and comfortable. Small group setting is much better than the motor coach options. The tour gave us a chance to also see and experience other aspects of the island along the way that you might otherwise miss. Definitely choose them for your volcano tour event.

Volcano National Park through the eyes and words of a Native Hawaiian Guide!
Christian is an amazing guide and all-around good guy offering a guided tour of Volcano National Park from the native Hawaiian perspective. This experience is perfect for first-timers and return visitors alike!

Was nice
A lot less of the volcano than I thought you'd get to see. But Dexter was awesome. We made extra stops to drop ppl off at airport or different tours they had booked so that wasn't cool.
