Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    You need a flashlight and good shoes, not flip flops. There’s a steep set of stairs and then there are two caves. Your cellphone flashlight isn’t strong enough to go too far into the cave. Enter at your own risk. Park across the street. They have a small restroom available too. Free admission.

    This was a fun, unique, informative experience! One of the highlights of our trip to the Big Island. We did the 4 hour tour which was challenging but not too hard for us (mid 40s and early 50s). Harry is kind, witty, extremely knowledgeable, and follows safety protocols. I highly recommend. You won’t be disappointed.

    We talked to Gary who set up our tour - he is so fun to talk with! We chose the 2 hour tour and it was amazing - you won't want to miss this! Our guide, Nica, was super!!! She was very informative and fun as she guided us throughout the cavern. We felt very safe and were amazed by the underground formations and bits of history left behind. This was the highlight to our 2 week stay in Kona/Hila and we highly recommend it. The lighted trail tour was part of this tour at the beginning and that is fantastic as well if you have limited time.

    Awesome tour with so much history packed into it! The tour guide was super knowledgeable, and we were able to see everything we wanted in the hour walking tour. It was just my husband and I on the tour so it was really personable as well. Highly recommend a tour from here.

    This is a great place to visit if you like adventure. This is a long lave tube with no lights, so for sure you have to bring your own lights. You also need good shoes and some kind of protection for your head. Its is near to impossible to avoid hitting the ceiling of the cave sooner than later. We got in and walked the first couple of miles. After an hour it is just the same so it is better to get back rather than going all the way in.

    If you want one of the most amazing experiences of your life, sign up for the 4 hr tour of this cave. It is an incredible life experience. The guide, Harry, is super knowledgeable and informative, and adds great value to the experience. This cave is unique - it is literally like visiting a part of our planet one has never seen. The tour was moderately challenging so it is best to be in reasonable fitness. The information Harry provides, and the uniqueness of the cave, make the cost of the tour a good value and well worth it. I cannot recommend this tour highly enough.
