Land Volcano Tour Reviews

I was apprehensive about going on a 13 hour tour. That just seemed too long. By the end of the day it felt too short. I did not want it to end. Our guide, John was superb. He knew where to get the best views and photos. He seemed to know everything volcano related and told us about flora, fauna, myths, geology, even gossip about the park rangers.  We loved the tour and loved John.

My Wife and I just want to thank you for the best tour that we have ever been on.  We had the pleasure of doing this tour when in Hilo off our Pride of America cruise. Mario, our guide was prompt picking us up and he showed us an amazing day. His extensive understanding and love of the volcano is clear from his superb narration to secrets he knows about the island. He made everyone feel special and really made the trip incredible.

Helicopter Tour Reviews

Thank you for the suggestion to do the helicopter out of Hilo. That was a shorter (and cheaper) flight and it allowed us to visit the national park on the same day.  We sat in the Jacuzzi that night with another couple who did the flight out of Kona. We did not tell them, but we made the right choice 😉

Anyway, the morning flight was excellent and our pilot, Tooshi (sp?) was the best.

We know that we’re not supposed to expect lava, but of course we were hoping to see it.  Initially, we only saw smoke, but our pilot Steve finally got us to a place where we could see some lava. It was not very much, but it was really exciting to see it in person. We could feel the warmth.  That really made our whole flight.

The lady next to me was clearly queasy, but fortunately she got through the flight.  Just a warning to those who get motion sickness. Take some pills before the flight.
