So glad I signed us up for this! Scott took us to see places that we would have never seen on our own and pointed out things that we would have never noticed. He is very knowledgeable about the volcanos and sites near Hilo. He was also very patient with our picture taking as my husband and I were both taking many pictures. I highly recommend the sunrise tour; there were very few people at the volcano and they were so quiet that we could hear the movement of the lava. We went back to the park later the next day on our own (couldn't get enough of it) and there were many more people, all talking so no one could hear it; they didn't know what they were missing. I highly recommend this tour!

Mahalo for taking the time to write a great review! It's always thrilling for me when I see visitors wanting to take amazing pictures of this amazing island. It really is worth it getting up early to visit the volcano at sunrise. With about 2 million visitors to Volcanoes National Park annually, it's so great having the park mostly to ourselves so early in the morning. Aloha

Fabulous Tour
Jan 2018 • Couples
Scott provided the best tour of Volcano National Park and the surrounding area! We were a little apprehensive about leaving our hotel at 4:45am but trusted Scott to know what he was doing. He was absolutely right to get to the Park before sunrise. We saw all the stars, heard the volcano rumbling and then witnessed the sunrise!!!! Scott also took us off the normal tourist path, showing us sites that many people never see. I must say that this tour was well worth every penny. Scott is very personable and accommodating. Don't hesitate to book with him.

Mahalo for the kind words and great review! Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is a very special place and being able to explore it before the crowds arrive...it doesn't get any better than that! I always get jazzed when I hear the rumble from the lava lake, and this particular morning did not disappoint! It really was, and always is, a treat sharing the amazing volcano with visitors from all over the world. Aloha

Private 3-hour tour of Volcano National Park
Dec 2017 • Solo
Scott took me on a 3-hour tour of the park with special emphasis on the lava and it's formations and Chain of Craters Road. His knowledge and enthusiasm for the park, the volcano and lava were great and he showed me details and places I would have missed traveling on my own. Plus he was great about taking pics of me. Had I went on my own, there would have been noone to do so. He pointed out some good hikes and other things in the area to further check out on my own. Scott's a fantastic and knowledgeable guide who is passionate about ensuring you see what you want to see most and helps to make that happen.
