Well worth it!

Love all the information Dave gave us...VERY informative. It is a long day, but what a great way to get an overview of the entire island. The island was socked in with rain so we were disappointed to not see any lava, but we did see MAJOR steam vents due to the rain. We VERY MUCH ENJOYED the tour.

Two Thumbs Up Big Island Volcano Tour

This was a fantastic tour!! Our geologist guide, Eric, was awesome—knowledgeable, friendly and well prepared. It was a great tour of the Big Island and a wonderful way to view the active volcano, Kilauea. His comfortable touring van was stocked with bug spray/sunscreen/rain gear supplies and a great variety of snacks. And there were plenty of sightseeing stops to see the beautiful local scenery and to accommodate bathroom breaks. I would not hesitate to recommend this tour to anyone visiting The Big Island!

Zane Smith is the BEST tour guide! He really finds a way to connect with each person in the group to make it a unique personal experience for everyone. He was very informative and we really enjoyed Punalu'u Black Sand beach, Holei Sea Arch, Rainbow Falls, Thurston Lava Tube, both the craters in the Volcano Park and the little restaurant we ate at. Highly recommend.

Our tour guide, Erik, was amazing- funny, extremely knowledgeable about the island not to mention his crazy geology knowledge- he clearly loves this stuff! The tour hit a perfect combination of sights- the caldera was amazing. Comfy van and plentiful snacks to top it off! The entire family loved it.

The tour was fantastic and so was Eric, our guide from Geo tours. He’s a geologist so you learn lots of interesting facts about the wonderful places we visited…the Hawaiian Coffee Farm, the black sand beach where we saw sea turtles, then it was on to Volcano National Park. The tour includes a delicious hot meal at a great restaurant before exploring the Park! The active volcano and the lava tube were amazing! We ended with seeing a beautiful waterfall in Hilo. They also supplied snacks & non alcoholic drinks throughout the day! Would definitely do again-was lots of fun! Bruce & Sally from Wi

Lava flows!!!
Karen_U
, Mar 2022
Of course the lava flow, but also showing results of how when the flow goes through what happens, example, tree totally engulfed but then leave hole. A stop that no one else was at. Geology is such an interesting topic, but especially on the big island. The lava tube was unbelievable, amazing. Erik made it special.

Hawaii Geo Tours, Volcanoes National Park

We highly recommend Zane Smith, Geologist owner operator of Hawaii Geo Tours. We have previously toured Volcanoes National Park but our day with Zane far surpassed previous experiences. His knowledge of the Park and the Big Island was beyond expectations. The ride in the brand new 14 passenger Mercedes Van, lunch @ Volcano House overlooking Kilauea caldera, and visiting his special areas of the Park was very enjoyable! Great job Zane, we wish you much success

Eric, our guide, was so knowledgeable and personable. We both learned so much. When he found out that the lava flow had paused, he pivoted and we helped choose our adventure. All in all, a perfect day.

Excellent all-day trip. Every stop was worthwhile and informative, from the coffee plantation to the black sand beach where we saw several sea turtles to the volcano itself. Both the crater and the lava tube were fascinating. Our guide was excellent and very knowledgeable about the geology and economy of the island. Definitely worth the time. The fact that they picked us up/dropped us off at our hotel and provided lunch really added to the convenience of booking through Hawaii Geo Tours.

Zane, our tour guide, is the owner-operator of this tour company, which is very cool. Before the trip, he made sure that we were clear about the pickup location. That is very helpful because the Hilton Waikoloa Village's bus pickup is tucked away on a different level. Zane was very friendly and made sure he knew everyone's name. He is also very knowledgeable, not only about the volcano national park, but also in local culture, history, and attractions. Because he is an owner-operator, he can adjust our itinerary based on our interest, weather, road condition and minimize any wait time. I'm glad that I picked this tour company and it was well worth the money and time we spent.

Eric was terrific, it was great to hear his explanations about the volcanos, the geography and the formation of the islands. Comfortable accommodation in van and good route covered a good portion of island. We also appreciated his overall knowledge of the island and its history. Excellent!

It was an awesome tour. Erik, our tour guide, was extremely knowledgeable. He made the magnificent sights (lava flow at Volcano National Park, black sand beach, waterfall etc.) even more magestic with the history he was able to provide. Definitely a must do tour.
