Our tour guide, Kala was very knowledgeable about the island, the history, culture and customs. He not only gave us information about the sites we were visiting but was also a wealth of knowledge about the rest of the island as we were driving around the island. He made sure we were able to get plenty of great pictures and was excited as everyone on the tour that we were able to see lava. This was truly the best thing we did on our vacation on the island I would highly recommend.
My daughter and I loved our volcano tour. The write up indicates you should bring a light jacket. That might be fine in the middle of the summer but we were there mid January. It was freezing cold and raining. My suggestion would be to actually call the company regarding temperatures and weather. The site also doesn't mention it is a box lunch. Not that the food wasn't tasty, there just was no choice. I would definitely recommend this tour but remember warm rain gear and a flashlight.
Great tour, our guide Darian was enthuisiastic, a great wealth of knowledge on the Hawaian culture, history of Hawaii and the volcanic evolution, only critisism would be the advertising of the tour which does not give a true indication of the true weather conditions that can be encountered, Hilo area is the wettest part of Hawaii with rain almost every day which left most of the group under prepared.
But still well worth doing.
