This was a fantastic tour, and it was the highlight of our trip to Hawaii. We got to see some amazing things, and the tour company struck just the right balance between our time on a bus and our time walking around outside and seeing some of the Big Island’s best sites. It was also completely seamless to hop a quick flight from Honolulu to the big Island. The tour company arrange the flights once we booked the tour, and there were absolutely no snags. I would highly recommend this to anyone!
Mel was an excellent...

A must while in HI

We were here in March of 2022. Our tour date was March 16, 2022, Our guide was excellent. Our guide was also a trainer with this company. He was from the island and was able to deliver so much history on our tour. His personality was electric, wealth of knowledge was infinite. This tour was soooooo power packed. Just when I thought the NEXT STOP couldn’t be any better than the previous …. We get shocked. You MUST DO THIS TOUR!!! It is worth EVERY DOLLAR. Our guide took us to all of the hidden treasures. Our lunch at the famous Punalu’u Bake Shop, where they have various Malasada’s for purchase and bread loaves was above and beyond.

The Lava tube is a bucket list and MUST SEE experience and seeing the craters. You really get perspective on the power of a volcano. Nature and it’s fury!!! No guarantee that the volcano will be active. That is up to nature. Still breathtaking and gives insight into the heart of a volcano.

Our guide juggled driving, managing time and he crammed every minute up to the last sec. We got to the airport at the last min, but it was worth it. Made our flight and have endless memories forever. We will go back.

NOTE: If it is not clear in the description you will be contacted by the tour company the week before your excursion, for the Inter Island flight to get the airport you are departing from and they will book your round trip ticket to Oahu. This cost is included in the $549.99.

I have to give a shout out to the company that runs this tour, Hi Island Experiences, LLC. When we first booked and needed to confirm the details the week we were flying out, get clarity on the inter island flight and how it worked, and weren’t getting a call back, we contacted Viator. The owner of Hi island experiences contacted us himself. It’s a disconnect between what the owner can see or has access to through Viators site due to privacy. Not the tour company’s fault. It was as simple as information needed to be updated so owner could make an adjustment and have access to respond to a customer. It you chat Viator and don’t get a satisfactory answer, call them. We have booked all our excursions through them and have not been disappointed. Also I saw recently they are on Rakuten, and you can earn 6% cash back as of July 18,2022.
Absolutely fantastic day

Wonderful experience. Clean bus. Mel was our tour guide and he did a fantastic job of educating us, making it fun, and age. His knowledge and passion for the islands is evident in the knowledge he shares via stories and histories. Totally engaging and I highly recommend.
Must See!

Melvin was an amazing tour guide! We had so much fun seeing all of the breathtaking sights that the Big Island has to offer including black sand beaches, volcano national park, rainbow falls, lava tube, and more! Mel goes above and beyond to make the experience special and informative, telling all of the history of the island and it’s people. Would highly recommend!!
Outstanding tour

Outstanding tour led by Mel who was extremely knowledgeable about volcanoes and Hawaiian culture. Every part of the trip flowed smoothly and was informative and enjoyable.

Jeffery our outer guy…
Was wonderful, the view from the coffee farm were breath taking..
Volcano 1 mile hike is worth every step mother natures absolutely beautiful. Lava tunnel is speechless
( what Mother Nature can do is beyond anything I can imagine)
Then the waterfall…
What a trip it is worth every dollars your will ever spend.. it is long day however see most of the island in one day is worth it…
Great Guide, Great Dive, Great Experience

Jared was the best PADI certified dive instructor I have had. He was patient and kind and looked out for my son even though my son wasn’t able to do the dive. I would highly recommend Waikiki dive club for anyone sticking their first dive and Jared in particular as a great guy.
Most memorable trip ever!
Daniel_C, 26-01-2023
Our tour guide Mel was out of this world! Incredibly knowledgeable about all the history on the island! He makes the volcano tour easily accessible and makes learning the history a breeze for all, he makes sure to get you back on time so you don’t have to worry about making your flight. You get to see and learn so much in just one day with him so if you don’t know if you’ll ever be back again I highly suggest it. Would give the tour and Mel 20 stars if I could, Mahalo!
Great tour
TraciB778, 25-01-2023
I went on this tour and highly recommend it. The flights were very easy from Oahu and back from
Hilo to Oahu. My tour guide was Mel and he was EXTREMELY knowledgeable about each topic he discussed. He even told a very long informative story on Capt Cook on our sojourn around the southern half of the island. I could have done these things on my own but why? Mel had a ton of history, culture and facts to offer at each stop and we had a very comfortable air conditioned bus taking us to multiple sites. This was well worth the price during a week long trip to Honolulu and I left the big island feeling much more educated and enlighten on the area. The volcano was the pivotal part of the tour and ended the day. This was a great experience!

Tips for others be prepared to walk and get in and out of the van many times. Bring extra water if possible and a good camera for numerous amazing shots of the local area.
Big Island Adventure

This is a great intro to the Big Island of Hawaii. It’s not just a Volcano tour - it’s basically an all day tour of the countryside. Mel & Henry were great! Lots of history, stories & discussion of this very different part of Hawaii. Thanks again guys!
Beautiful experience in the big island
Mohamed_I, 19-01-2023
Beautiful experience. The guide is very informative and very cooperative. The sites that we visited are very unique. I highly recommend them.
Great tour guide, great experience overall
Kyle_T, 24-07-2022
This was an outstanding driving tour of the big island. Our tour guide Mel was very knowledgeable and did a fantastic job. I took a star away because the company never emailed me my flight reservations which could have been pretty disastrous if I wasn't familiar with traveling in the islands. But once we got there we were very happy with our guide and enjoyed tremendously learning about the islands, history, people and language of Hawai'i.
Don’t book with Viator!
Arianne_H, 10-07-2022
Experience with tour operator was amazing. Experience with Viator booking and communication was HORRIBLE! Do not book with Viator! Use another booking company!
Volcano is Amazing
Karl_B, 12-11-2022
Very good trip, guide was very very knowledgable and informative, the Volcano was absolutely brilliant, don’t think is worth the full amount we paid, but then again everything is expensive in Hawaii.
