We will be traveling to Hawaii Feb 3rd and staying to the 5th. We are interested in getting a tour of the volcano with day and evening eruptions. There will be two of us traveling. We are not opposed to sharing our tour with others. Do you pick us up at the hotel? How long is the tour? What is the cost? Thanks for your help. Michelle
