Overview

Our tour takes you to view the largest and most active volcano in the world, the Kilauea Caldera. The Kilauea Caldera is a massive crater encircled by plumes of sulfuric smoke, and the signs of lava destruction are everywhere. The lava flows are constantly shifting, and our tour takes you as close as possible to see them. On our tour, you will walk through an actual lava tube which include extensive lava flows and Hawaii's unique black sand beaches. Later, you’ll pass through lush rainforest as our guide points out many native tropical plants, such as red ginger and ginseng. Our tours take in 10 major Hilo attractions ensuring you have a spectacular day in Hilo.

This was a typical area bus tour where the driver gives an overview while driving then dumps you off @ various venues for 30 mins "on your own;" no personal touch. Our driver wasn't even a native (Leroy, from Wisconsin) but followed a well-rehearsed script....More
