    We had an marvelous day with Hugh as our guide. He has great expertise and brought us to the most amazing places in Hilo. I totally recommend this day trip. When I’m Hawaii you simply can’t miss the Volcanoes Park and all the beautiful waterfalls and lava beach sightings… You must see it all!

    This was a full day of fun. It was rainy and windy in the morning when we were at the Volcano House and lava fields but it was still wonderful. Then the sun came out in time for us to visit the waterfalls and black sand beach.

    Natural scenes are good but services are bad

    Have to contact the travel agent after payment. Only being told to wait at 5am, no any details of the flight, pick up vehicle, driver contact, destination weather, appropriate clothes etc. It was raining at the big island and chill, not enough clothes for all of us. No proper meal for over 8 hrs after the breakfast buffet finished at 10am. Cold and starving for the whole trip. Amazing volcano scene could not compensate poor service.

    Booked this pre travels as part of our trip to Hawaii, keen to get to the Big Island during our stay. The tour was excellent and the guide, Rob was enthusiastic and so knowledgeable. If doing this, prepare for a long day and potential of wet weather (albeit it still warm). Don't make the mistake I did of wearing a summer dress as when you get out onto the volcano you don't want to be skirt fighting! Trainers also recommended, as flip flops weren't quite cutting it. Would highly recommend and definitely do again. Thanks for a great trip

    Anthony our tour guide was very engaged and excited to teach us about the Big Island and Hawaii's history. The tour was well organized and we say many things around the Island and the volcano. Fully recommend it!

    The airline trips/tour was well organized. I didn't particularly enjoy the orchid farm stop or the Macadamia farm stop but was more than impressed with Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park. We enjoyed our bus tour with plenty of stops, we were able to see hot springs, walk on a trail through the hot springs, we were able to see lava at Kilauea as well. Overall, worth the trip from Oahu.

    We visited Big Island in April this year. Wonderful tour of all the key attractions on Big Island with Polynesian Adventures Tours. Hotel pickup/drop off from / to the airport and Hawaiian Airlines flight from Honolulu to Hilo on Big Island was well very well organized and on time. This gave us full 12 hours to cover the itinerary. The trip to Rainbow Falls, Akatsuka Orchid Gardens, Mauna Loa factory and Liluokalani Gardens were delightful. Volcanoes National Park, chain of craters, lava fields and an up close view of the Kilauea caldera at Pahoa was simply spectacular and breathtaking. Our local tour guide Leroy was very knowledgable and regaled us with interesting facts and local native Hawaiian stories. This will be a very memorable trip for us as after 3 weeks of our visit the Kilauea volcano erupted and due to extreme volcanic activity and lava flows Pahoa and neighboring areas have been evacuated and closed to visitors.

    Very informative and helpful guide. Appreciated his expertise and knowledge of the sights. It was unfortunate the weather was not favorable during the time at Volcano National Park.
