Given different flights arrival and departure times, you should probably tailor some tour to better fit the schedule of the individuals. For example, I arrive early in the morning to Hilo and had a late departure flight. On the other, had other persons within my group had a later flight into Hilo and a earlier departure forcing the tour to be a rush throughout the day.
The tour was great and the guide was the best! I had a such a fun time. My only suggestion is to allow more time to hike to the lava flow. It was quite a rush and quite a regret not being able to see the lava flow.
My husband and I were very pleased with the tour. I had been concerned about the duration of the tour, as we had flown over from Oahu for just the day. But we had plenty of time to see everything on the intinerary and still make our return flight. Our driver was very informative and interesting as he talked about the local vegetation and culture.
Our driver Al was wonderful and very knowledgeable. He made the day very pleasant
Stop for lunch a little short. Not a great selection of food but this is not a reflection on the tour just the place where we stopped.
It was a good overview of the Hilo side of the island. Not that exciting though. It was pretty much one crater after another. If you see one then the other five look the same. The lava tube was pretty cool though and being able to walk through the lava rock.
I thought that more time could have been spent at the orchid place and at the Mauna Loa factory. Some of the time can be cut from the volcano portion. Eventually it felt like we had seen enough craters.
alot more time at lava flow there was not enuff time to walk out to lava flow into ocean
