    Get up early and walk the 1 mile on Old crater rim trail to see the crater before sunrise. Spectacular! You can see all the little fizzures that make up the whole crater

    Jacklyn our guide was amazing and made it possible to enjoy everything . Her knowledge of the island is very informational yet she made it fun. Was great being on a tour with someone who genuinely loves there job and is good at it. Recommend to anyone visiting the island for the first time. Definitely helps set the pace for a great vacation!

    This tour offered an excellent overview of Hilo and Volcano National Park. Driver and guide Donna was terrific--informative, patient, and full of interesting stories.

    This was an excellent tour of the big island. About 2 years ago, my wife and I toured the whole island by ourselves on our last vacation trip to Hawaii. There was quite a bit of information from our tour guide which we didn't know from our trip around the island ourselves. Thia was a fantastic tour guide. She also had a list of good places to eat. We saw lots of natural transition in landscape. I suggest Thia, if they give you a choice.

    Our guide Jeff Manzo was terrific and very knowledgeable. I would do this on my next visit. I would want to bring my grandkids to see the summit and the star gazing

    First and foremost, I strongly recommend this trip! We had Donna as our tour guide. She is so knowledgeable (about Hawaii culture, astronomy observatories up at the summit, etc), and she exceeded my expectations. One advice I have is to check the weather and park road conditions before you book the trip. The day we went had clear sky so we were able to see the breathtaking sunset and milky way. We can even spot the satellites! Donna shared a lot of Greek constellation stories and showed us where those famous planets (Jupiter, Mars, etc) were located during stargazing. Please bring yourself a warm jacket. It was freezing cold up at the summit. On our way back, she also shared Hawaiian deity stories and taught me a couple Hawaiian words. I had so much fun that night. And Donna definitely made it one of my best experiences. Thank you Donna 😊

    100% recommend! Nate was extremely knowledgeable about everything! He talked about everything Hawaii including culture, folk lore, geography, volcanoes, history, and his knowledge of astronomy was very impressive. Could we have done this tour by ourselves? Sure. But having a guide with his knowledge and expertise (and the huge telescope) was worth every penny!

    Josh with Mauka Makai Adventures was amazing. We had terrible weather, but he made the trip fun and interesting. We learned so much from him. We didn’t even notice the cold and torrential rain. And he made sure we saw everything we wanted. We saw Waterfalls, Lava Tubes, Lava fields, and new Lava. After we didn’t get to see to Kīlauea because of the storm and clouds, Josh returned to it later so we could get a good view of it. He also brought a Monoscope that let us see and photograph the lava flow close up. This trip is a small group of 12 or less, and so worth it. Don’t miss going with Josh to the Volcanos.

    So worth it. Just coincidence that we booked this months ago, before the Manual Loa eruption. Allen is a great pilot. I will say the front row is NOT a 3 seater. My right arm and shoulder were hanging out and had a very hard time maneuvering my phone for pictures. The eruption took the time that would have been allocated to the rain forest viewing. Fair trade. Word to the wise… heed the notice about dressing warm for doors off flight, especially since it started raining up there. (Again, arm and shoulder hanging outside the cockpit.) Would do it again though.

    So grateful for this tour! Hunter was absolutely amazing and incredibly knowledgeable. My friend and I booked very last minute and we are so glad we did highly recommend this tour from Hilo. Timing was perfect. Highlight of the tour was seeing the volcanic lava lake. The company provided jackets, snacks, and water bottles. Don’t hesitate to book this tour. The company is highly experienced, very professional, and timely.

    Watching the lava bubble up hot orange in color against the gray surface was the highlight of the tour. It made great videos.

    We did the lava and rainforest Helicopter tour on May 10 and had an amazing experience! Paradise's communication was clear throughout the whole process. As for the tour itself, we saw a lot of the island (housing developments, farms, forests, waterfalls, and of course volcano national park). Alan, our pilot, was very informative and told us stories and information about everything we flew above. He would make sure both sides of the helicopter got a clear view of all the cool sights. On the day we went, we were fortunate enough to see flowing, red lava, which was very cool! We highly recommend.

    Stunning once in a lifetime experience on the Big Island. Our guide Greg was sensational at explaining the history, topography and geology while keeping us glued to our seats with the wonders of the island. Seeing the lava flows at Kilauea, winding around the northern valleys and seeing whales along the spectacular shoreline - couldn't recommend this enough. I can't believe he gets to do this every single day!
