Volcanoes and Hilo Sights and Scenes
, Jan 2020
Our guide Yong was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot about the history of the volcanoes and surrounding Hilo highlights. He was very courteous and engaging and enhanced our excursion immensely.
See the sights in Hilo

This was a good excursion that we took while in Hilo for the day. Great choice rather than a crowded cruise based excursion. We were picked up in a nice newer passenger van. Only 8 total people in our group. Our day in port was a bit short, so some of the stops felt rushed. But as a group we talked with the guide and made some adjustments. Bring a light snack, although we did stop at a 7/11 for lunch.
Poor Communication from Viator/Trip Advisor - Always book direct with tour agency.

The following review reflects on Viator and not solely on the tour operator. We booked with Viator over the phone, gave our trip and flight info and they booked this tour for us. Received a text the day before the tour by the operator to change my flight time or location or we would not be able to attend... Thanks for the notice! Perhaps when I booked this tour Viator could have provided all this information.

Shore excursion. This tour is for cruise ships. This tour which operates on days ships arrive and are joined with cruise ship guests. Please don’t book air without checking with us. This is shore excursion from cruise ship; not, from airplane. We need flight number and time of departure and return flight and flight time.
Good for everyone

The driver/guide, John was very, very knowledgeable on everything about the island, History and culture to real estate to geology to plants, etc, etc. This is a six hour tour that makes a lot of stops. It was raining much of the day but John made the stops and everything worked out very well. We would recommend for first timers or anyone that wants a good overview of the area.

John was the best guide. He had an abundance of history and information and great stories to tell. The island is beautiful.
Enlightening, beautiful and fun day

Alex drove our group all around the island, which was delightful. Learning about the geological history of the land was very interesting. We were thoroughly impressed and entertained by his knowledge and enthusiasm.
Shore excursion hilo tour with Liliuokalani Gardens Volcano park

Great for solo travelers

Such a great tour. Covered so much! Great tour guide with great facts. As a solo traveler, a definite tour!
Nicely paced trip around the hot spots near Hilo
, Sep 2019
We enjoyed the fact that this was not on one of those giant buses. It was nice to only worry about a few couples getting on and off the bus vs a large crowd. Each stop was 20-30 minutes and they were spaced out to the point where you do not spend hours driving to get to a short 20 minute stop and leave. The variety of the stops between waterfalls, Volcano National Park, and other attractions kept the tour perfectly balanced. My wife and I really enjoyed this trip and I would recommend it to anyone.
Hilo, Hawaii bus tour for cruise ship people

The tour was very thorough and the driver and guide were both helpful and knowledgeable. It wasn't clear that we would have to buy our lunch at a gas station to take on the bus for later. Also, the tour ended up being 6 hours instead of 5 so it got a little long and people were antsy.
