My husband and I had a wonderful time. We took the six hour tour and were not bored for one minute. I highly recommend this and would do it again if I return to Hawaii. Eric was extremely informative and incredibly nice.

The only way to see the Park. Our experience was excellent. They gave us great recommendations when we first inquired based on our age and interests. Our guide,Michelle, was a delight and her knowledge of the Park and the history of the Volcanoes and Hawaii were fascinating.

Aloha travel2day4us! Thank you very much for your review of your private tour. We do prefer to focus on the more hidden area of the volcano while exploring, and are always happy to make recommendations outside of the tour as well. Mahalo for your recommendation and we are very happy to hear you enjoyed your day with our guide!
