Not to be missed. Fascinating recent history of the volcano. Scott was an excellent guide. Went out of his way to make our tour special.

Thank you for taking the time to write a 5-star review! I am so happy you were able to explore some of the aftermath of the 2018 Kilauea eruption. It truly is a sight not to be missed.

By far my favorite excursion of all the islands! Scott was an amazing guide. He communicated throughout the whole process, was on time, his vehicle was spacious and comfy but the BEST was his knowledge of Volcanoes National Park, it's rich history and historical facts. He knew all the places to stop and get out-most undiscovered by the big tour buses so they were peaceful. Scott was patient and let us dictate how much time we wanted to spend at each stop. You can tell he is passionate about his job and he LOVES the park and the island. I would book this over and over again when going back. Truly an amazing experience that wouldn't have been possible with a large group-Scott was great!

Being on a private tour allows my guests to see many sights and experience many things you cannot find on a larger group tour. I am so happy to see you enjoyed your tour! Aloha

Good trip. Enjoyed the personal attention and knowledge tidbits. If I was going to do again, I think I would go for the early morning tour to see the glow of the volcano.

Scott gave us an incredible private tour. He is very knowledgeable and most hospitable. He kept us way out in front of the tour buses during our private tour. In addition to the Volcanoes National Park Scott took us to an orchid house, Mauna Loa macadamia plantation, Twin Falls, Hawaiian Candy Company and to Richardson Park for a walk on a black sand beach.

Scott was knowledgeable and an experienced host. He tried to enable the areas we wanted to see and was flexible. Next time we will build in a helicopter ride to see the lava flowing into the sea and that will be the perfect day. Scott had great local knowledge in food, beaches, lava spots and places most people miss. Thanks for picking us up and dropping us at the airport. Appreciate your efforts

The private tour was outstanding because Scott, our tour guide was one of the best tour guides we have experienced. He was very knowledgeable clearly enjoys guiding and was very flexible in terms of the itinerary - he told us about options, we collectively decided where to go next and off we went. And of course the volcanoes and history themselves was superb to learn about and see first hand.
