Truly a once in a lifetime experience, well with the money. It is a long day but it is required to see all of the areas of the island on the tour. Aaron was unbelievably knowledgeable and was very kind and accommodating. I would recommend sticking with his schedule so you have the opportunity to see everything plus a little extra.

We had an amazing time sight seeing and visiting all the various places our tour guide Todd brought us to! We were able to see so many beautiful parts of the island, the volcano, and so many stars!

Our guide Drau totally made this your amazing. He really went out of his way all day - even changed his outfits to suit the different stops. The volcano’s are just amazing.

We all really enjoyed our tour. We saw so much and our guide, Aaron, was so informative. Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park was amazing and our favorite part of the tour.
