Mark was a great guide. He took us to see out-of-the-way spots like a lava tube, beaches (where we saw sea turtles), and a local outdoor restaurant. We hiked a couple miles to see a lava firehose. We could see lava flowing from a cliff and hitting the ocean. With a zoom lense or field glasses, we could see rocks... More

This tour is far too long - almost everything before lunch could be left off (parks, orchid farms, macadamia plantations) as what everyone actually wants to see is the volcanoes! The brochure says that 'viewing of molten lava IS NOT guaranteed' but what they should actually say is that there is no way you will see lava. The day we... More

We couldn't have been more pleased, as we were at the National Park when we could see the amazing ring of fire. The crater itself with the smoke coming out is a sight to behold, but add the fire, and it is pretty incredible. We then were able to walk through the lava tunnel. Our guide was very knowledgeable, and... More

We went with Roberts Hawaii volcano tour. There were around 30 people in the group. It was an all day tour. It was tiring but the stunning view of the volcanos at the end of the trip was worth it. This was a once in a lifetime trip to see the active volcanos.

Group of 7 flew from Oahu to Hilo for full day tour. Good experience. Since we drove ourselves to the airport there was a little confusion on where to meet our tour. Guide Sue was very knowledgeable and friendly. She brought pictures that helped To explain the things we were seeing. Only complaint was the lunch stop. We were not... More

We went with Roberts Hawaii. Our excellent driver was Junior, a native Hawaiian from Hilo. The tour was so much more than we ever expected. We got a lot for our money. It was 8 hours long when we expected about 4-5 hours. We saw so much more than the volcano. We went to Rainbow Falls, a black sand beach,... More

Nate was a superb tour guide for the star gazing. He really knew his stuff, and he made sure everyone got a chance to se the stars. Justin for the lava tour was awesome. Very friendly. He kept everyone engaged and moved us along at a good pace.

Great day out with the wonderful tour guide sue who was a good balance of knowledgeable, funny and slightly crazy. The day was a bit wet but it didn't spoil anything. Saw some great locations on route including a turtle on the rocks, waterfall, black sand beach and also the volcano crater and lava tube. Great day.
