Tour was interesting and traveling van was nice and comfortable. Drive to Hilo from the opposite side of island is long. Our tour guide was wonderful, very accomodating and well prepared. For as long as the drive is, It would have been nice to have a recorded video/audio of the history of the Hawaiian islands, instead of the guide having to talk the whole time (sure he would have appreciated a break). The places that we were taken to were as expected with some unexpected and wonderful stops. Tour is great for older, less able people. Younger, more adventurous people may want more.
Way more options than you can possibly do in one week! I loved the Volcanoes National Park tour. It steered us to the best sites and which scenic pullouts were not needed after already seeing craters and lava. The arch is worth the drive. Also used a portion of the Southern island audio for the other National Park. Hope to come back and do other sights that we missed the first time.
We had a great time. Nick was very informative about the island and the volcanos. We heard some really good stories about his local experiences around the island also. Would definitely recommend taking this tour if you have a whole day. The hikes over the lave flows and by the crater were fun.
Great app. Can be a little clunky to get it working well if you're switching audio between the guide and music from your phone. However, it is very well detailed and narrated. Highly recommended if you are driving the big island with a rental car!
