Greg

This was a really good tour. Our guide, Jennifer, was very knowledgeable, friendly and was attentive to our condition. It was hot and this is quite a workout. She made sure we hydrated and would frequently ask if we needed a break. It seemed like we were walking on the moon. It was so cool!

Jennifer was responsive prior to the event, and was experienced as a guide. She also provided a lot of good history about the volcano and their history, as well as suggestions for other activities in the area.

Very informative and the time was managed well

Our guides were excellent - good team. What I enjoyed most was the time they spent telling us about the history behind the flows and the future expectations. I highly recommend the tour. Well worth the price.
