Breath taking
, May 2022
Loved it! Such a be peaceful day and a spectacular birthday!! The tour guide was humorous and well knowledged in Hawaiian culture and provided extra tid bits of knowledge. Definitely a must do hike!
Amazing technical hike
, Apr 2022
My boyfriend and I loved this hike. We are avid hikers so we enjoy a challenge. This is a real hike and definitely not a stroll in the park. I would recommend this for someone that loves hiking and does not have an mobility issues. We learned so much and the views were amazing. The best part was the lava tube. Our guide was Taro and he was very knowledgeable and engaging.
Great adventure with terrific guide.

It was a hike off of the beaten path. Saw the real natural part of the island that most never see. Would do it again!
Beautiful worthwhile adventure

Mystical in the old woods, listening and watching the birds. The old craters along the rift zone was unexpected but beautiful.

Experience of a life time !!!!!!!!
, Feb 2022
I booked with the intent of having a good time on a hike but I actually had a hiking experience I will never forget ! It was exhilarating and magical. I completely was not expecting to be blown away by the views of the crators. Our guide Mark was extremely knowledgeable and elevated the entire experience by pointing out rare and endangered birds. ASK for Mark as your guide !!! As a hiking enthusiast you WILL NOT regret this experience. IT IS WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!!!!!
Highly recommend!!! Great way to spend a morning in Kona!

Excellent tour! Other reviewers mentioned a “bumpy ride” on the way to the hike and they meant it!!! Jon was an excellent guide and lots of fun (5 star tour guide and 1 star for his jokes—haha). This hike is not for the novice—wear your hiking shoes and bring a few layers of clothing which you will need to peel off as you work your way up the mountain. Use the walking sticks which are provided—they were a huge help for our group. Excellent views from the mountain and climbing through the lava tube was a highlight. Would highly recommend!

Awesome excursion
, Feb 2022
What an awesome excursion - so worth it. How many times does a person get to climb into a Lava tube and walk along the ridge of a crater? Once in a lifetime!!! Marc the guide was knowledgeable about Hawaiian culture and the natural environment. It was a delight being on his tour. Loved and appreciated his Aloha spirit.
Beautiful & Informational

Amazing and Fun

It was a fantastic hike with beautiful scenery. Mark, our guide, was very friendly and knowledgeable about our surroundings. I highly recommend it. You must wear sneakers or hiking shoes. (no sandals or water shoes).
Amazing Vistas and Subterranean Adventure
, Dec 2021
Really enjoyed this outing with my stepson. Mateo was an excellent guide, the scenery was spectacular, and everything we needed was provided, including hiking poles, small backpacks, snacks, water refills, and rain jackets (just in case). Learned a lot and loved the chance to see the island from a different vantage point.
