So glad I signed us up for this! Scott took us to see places that we would have never seen on our own and pointed out things that we would have never noticed. He is very knowledgeable about the volcanos and sites near Hilo. He was also very patient with our picture taking as

Mahalo for taking the time to write a great review! It's always thrilling for me when I see visitors wanting to take amazing pictures of this amazing island. It really is worth it getting up early to visit the volcano at sunrise. With about 2 million visitors to Volcanoes National Park annually, it's so great having the park mostly to ourselves so early in the morning. Aloha

Scott provided the best tour of Volcano National Park and the surrounding area! We were a little apprehensive about leaving our hotel at 4:45am but trusted Scott to know what he was doing. He was absolutely right to get to the Park before sunrise. We saw all the stars,

Mahalo for the kind words and great review! Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is a very special place and being able to explore it before the crowds arrive...it doesn't get any better than that! I always get jazzed when I hear the rumble from the lava lake, and this particular morning did not disappoint! It really was, and always is, a treat sharing the amazing volcano with visitors from all over the world. Aloha

Scott took me on a 3-hour tour of the park with special emphasis on the lava and it's formations and Chain of Craters Road. His knowledge and enthusiasm for the park, the volcano and lava were great and he showed me details and places I would have missed traveling on my own.
