What a tour! The lava was flowing, the glow was beautiful, and the natural formations were quite impressive. It rained for much of the day but I guess that is just how it is on that part of the island. It did make the waterfall that we saw flow heavily. Even got to see a black sand beach. I didn’t know those existed!!

I was travelling on my own and booked this tour and was suprised at how many others were on there own too. It was great to meet so many people from different parts of the world and the tour itself was run very well. the only dissapointing thing was it rained the whole day so some of the sites were very difficult to see due to poor visabillity but hey you cant predict the weather. Pheonix was a great guide and you could tell he loved his job. he was able to answer any questions and if he was unsure he googled the answer lol. very interesting island with a beautiful story, well worth the trip.

Nola from Melbourne Australia

We booked this tour for 4 adults before leaving Australia, smooth transaction. We arrived in Hilo from Honolulu & was met by the wonderful Phoenix, this guy is an asset to the business, nothing was too much trouble or effort, from the questions we asked to can you take another photo of us please!!
Our tour showed us heaps of places, but unfortunately as we were there when the tsunami was we didnt actually get to see the lava flowing, never mind, the Big Island is so beautiful & different to Ohau.
I looked at different travel companies to take this sort of trip & used travel blogs, & each time Discover Hawaii came up No 1 and they deserve it. I have no hesitation in recommending this tour, you will not be disappointed.
Thanks Phoenix for a memorable day, we will rave about it for years.

We flew from Maui to Hilo on the big island. Right on schedule, Phoenix met us at the airport for the tour. He did a super job. He was very knowledgeable, interesting, and funny. The stops and sights were well worth the time. I’d recommend this trip to all.

This was the best decision I made while in Hawaii! I was traveling by myself since I was in Hawaii for work instead of vacation. I was hesitant at first because I didn’t want to look like I was a loner. But our tour guide, Tony, made me feel like part of the family while taking us around the island. I had a great time with the group and I would definitely recommend this to everyone! This tour shows how magnificent a volcano can be and how Hawaii keeps growing. Tony is so knowledgeable about the subject matter and this tour has such a great pace that I didn’t feel like I was being herded like a tourist cattle. Great job, would do this again!

This tour was a long day but a really good tour. The flight was short to get to the Big Island. Hilo town was really green and had a light drizzle that made some great rainbows. The guide, John, was really good and made for a great day. Lunch was okay and the food was a good price.

Volcanoes National Park was huge and really interesting. I think the Thurston Lava Tube picture my husband took of me will be my next facebook picture! The steam vents were really really active when we were there.

The black sand beach was really nice to see and the lava viewing area was amazing. I was happy to see the glow coming down, our guide said that 2/3s of people on his tour get to see it.

It was a good day and I’d suggest this tour to my friends. Make sure to get a good night sleep before you go, it is a looong day!

My friends and I went to Oahu for vacation last month and had a great time. We stuck around the Waikiki area for most of the time and decided that we wanted to hit at least one more island while we were there. We decided to see the Volcano on the Big Island but really didn’t know how to go about it. A member of the hotel we were staying at recommended that we take a tour instead of taking on the excursion on our own, I have to say, my friends were not excited about this idea, but the price was right and we were told that we would see much more then just the volcano.
It worked out perfectly! We were picked up right at our hotel and taken to the airport, all the ticketing was taken care of. Once we arrived on the Big Island, we were picked up by our guide Phoenix, who was awesome! He REALLY knew his stuff, you could tell that he enjoys what he does, and we had a great time with him. He taught us a lot about the land and the culture, which was really interesting. We were brought to some really cool spots around the island, Rainbow falls seemed to be one of the group’s favorite places. We saw so much that day, and to top it off with the Volcano viewing at the end of the day was great. My friends could not have been happier with the tour, thankfully, otherwise I would have been hearing about it all the way back to the mainland haha. I would recommend this tour to everyone, this is much more then just a lava viewing tour and our guide really made it a lot of fun. We got much more then we thought, and Discover Hawaii did an awesome job!
