Excellent tour guide
K_S
, Apr 2021
Seemed very disorganized at the backend (e.g., wrong guest pickup address and missing NPS permits) but the tour guide made up for it by going above and beyond what was expected. He spent an extra 3 hours on the tour and we got a chance to see the lava glow at night.

Don’t go with Green Tours
Duncan_B
, Apr 2021
We went with Green Tours. We were supposed to be picked up at 8:00: We got a message that they would pick us up at 9:30. That should have been our first indication something was wrong. We were booked as a Kona origin tour. However they picked up people on the north shore which was 1.5 hours away. Which meant our return from the Volcano took 3 hours instead of 1.5. We didn’t get back until 11:30 pm and we were supposed to be back at 8pm. They did not make the loop, so we missed seeing the coastline and the black sand beach at Punalu. The worst was when we got to the Volcano, the driver didn’t have the authorization to get into the park. We made 3 different attempts to enter before he had the right code. This set us back another hour. We had lunch at a local drive in. He didn’t explain anything beforehand about the place. He old us to order and get back on the bus and we could eat at the waterfall. We decided to eat while the others were still ordering. He did not give any historical anecdotes about the sites. The only good thing about getting to the Volcano so late is we did see it glow at night. I felt bad for the driver as everyone was so mad, only two of us tipped him. I explained to him that people were upset he didn’t follow the itinerary. He told us he did what his boss told him to do. Maybe they could hand out a printed itinerary in the future. They were supposed to have water and snacks. There were none and the last meal was at noon. Fortunately, we brought our own water but there were kids who could have used water and snacks.

A waste of money and time
Jonah_S

DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY. Miserable, absolutely miserable. No orchid gardens, or samples due to covid. False advertising. LASTED 15 HRS instead of 10 purely due to the incompentence of the company not clearing things up with the park. The driver took us to lunch only to pick quite possibly the cheapest food ive ever ate. Zero seasoning, flattest cuts of beef. Took us to a candy place for free samples I asked for one but the clerk said they dont offer any at the moment. This Tour is HORRIBLY MISINFORMED. After we got rejected from the park 2 times he made us wait by a desert trail and check it out. He failed to tell us that it goes on for SEVEN miles so he had to scramble to get some tourists back to the bus. After driving us home after 15 hours of the WORST tourist experience ive had he was asking for tips at the stops. None of the prior tours ive taken here has done that. Ive submitted a partial refund request for not only the orchid gardens and free samples I was promised. But the 4 to 5 hours of my wasted vacation time.

Great tour of the island!
Bob V
, Jan 2020
Fabulous tour - Mike was terrific (with an amusing “Uncle Ernest” leading the tour thru Volcano Natl Park. Full of local knowledge, good overview of the island and enough time to explore each stop (and plenty of bathroom breaks). Good idea to start the morning with Kona coffee samples. The island is beautiful in its diversity. Mike is a great guide.

Not as advertised
Gbow2019
, Oct 2019
The reason I am rating this tour so low is because it was not the tour advertised on the website. Before my trip to Hawaii I had researched on Viator several different options for seeing multiple parts of the island on a single trip. I picked this tour over other tours for several reasons, but I will only mention two in this review: 1. According to the advertised itinerary on Viator the tour stopped at Akatsuka Orchid Gardens; and 2. According to the advertised itinerary it would not be going to any of the places I had already been to on a previous trip to the Big Island. The day before the tour I was called with information about my "Grand Circle Island" tour. I was very confused because I had booked the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park Full-Day Tour from Kona, not a Grand Circle Island tour. I spent over an hour on the phone with the 2 tour companies (the Grand Circle Island tour was being given by a different tour company than the Volcanoes National Park tour) trying to clarify why I was on a different tour. I was told repeatedly that it was the same tour I had purchased, but just a different name. However, it was not the same tour. For example, the tour did not stop at the Akatsuka Orchid Gardens, which was very disappointing for me as that was one of the stops I was most looking forward to. Instead the tour went to the Royal Kona Coffee Mill and the Pu'uhonua o Honaunau National Historic Park. While these tour sites are nice, I had already previously visited these places. As previously mentioned the reason I picked the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park Full-Day Tour from Kona is because I wanted to see the Orchid Gardens and also not repeat places I had already visited. If I had known that this tour did not follow the overview and itinerary listed on Viator I probably would have booked a different tour.
