A lot of driving.
Stephanie_L, Apr 2024
Host was nice. A lot of driving. The dinner place was okay. Walked through some tunnels. Got to see one turtle. Bakery was nice. Bus was too small. Overall excursion was too long...I was falling asleep.

Mani_P, Apr 2024
We had a great experience on this trip, our guide Gary was friendly and knowledgeable, we got to see many sites that we could not have seen by ourselves like seeing the crater rim from two places. The lunch was simple sandwiches and dinner was a three course meal at this cozy restaurant, my only advice is dress up warm, we got soaked in the rain despite umbrella and was Cold after

This is our first time exploring the Big Island. It was fun visiting the coffee plantation, the Thurston Lava Tube and Volcanoes National Park. The best part for me was that I didn’t have to drive and could enjoy the scenery. Thank you Sam for a great trip!

Carol_W, Jan 2024
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and informative. Seeing the cauldron in person was amazing. Nature is both beautiful and terrifying. Walking thru the lava tube was interesting- I wonder at how it was naturally round. The coffee farm was a wonderful addition as well as the amazing black sand beach w turtles taking a snooze.

Derick was an amazing guide! He told us so many great things about volcanos and was a great host.

Definitely recommend for an easy way to cover a lot of the island in one day!

John_B, Oct 2023
Truly great tour. Our guide, Grant, was incredibly knowledgeable with all aspects of the places we visited on the tour. He made the tour most enjoyable with many, many little tid bits and anecdotes relating to the history and life on the island. He also told us just enough about geology, vulcanism and history of eruptions that it was enlightening without becoming boring. The tour van was very comfortable, modern, clean and well maintained. The food served was plentiful and tasty. All told a great day out.
