    We had the most amazing time. Adam was our guide and did a phenomenal job. He explained the different foliage and birds that we saw on the trails as well as gave detailed information about the volcanos we visited. The lava tube was on private property and we were the only visitors and got to explore. Some of us could not go over the bigger rocks inside so we safely stayed back while Adam took the others deeper into the tube. Truly a wonderful learning experience.

    This was an outstanding adventure that we would definitely do again. We highly recommend it. Our guides, Hunter and Kanoa (not sure that is how it is spelled) were top notch!
