We did the 6 hour private tour with Erik and enjoyed every minute ( my husband was worried that 6 hours “talking about rocks “ was going to be boring). Eric’s passion and knowledge of Hawaii, the culture and environment are immediately evident. He is easy to talk to and we

Aloha prudens711 and thank you for your review! Many guests think the 6-hr private tour may be too long, but many who book the 3-hr private tour wish they had more time with their guides. We are also always happy to accommodate all guests to make sure they are comfortable and safe no matter the situation. We do recommend booking our private tours as one of the first things you do on the island - then as you explore the rest of the island all the topics we discuss on tour come into play and everything you see makes much more sense! Mahalo for your recommendation!

We spent a day with Erik Storm, hiking and exploring the park. He is a graduate of the University of Hawaii majoring in geology and vulcanology so he is thoroughly knowledgeable about all that we saw. He showed us things we might never have seen, and certainly would not have
