Here is a selection of the most recent reviews of the Big Island Day Trip: Volcanoes National Park from Oahu submitted by actual travelers. Read what travelers liked, what they loved, and what they thought could be improved.
Outstanding experience. The logistics all worked as advertised, and the tour itself was amazing. Our guide Robert (aka Capt. Rob) was simply the best. He was a botanist, a vulcanologist and and expert on all things about the island of Hawai'i. His narrative was so informative, and his demeanor was so pleasant and accessible, that it was truly a pleasure to be on an organized guided tour with him - something we usually avoid as a rule. The guides for this trip rotate, so I can assure you that it is worth finding out when Capt. Rob is going to do the trip (if possible) and book the day he is the lead.
Wonderful, memorable trip!Reviewed by: Timothy O, February 2014

Fantastic on the volcanoes which was after lunch time. Thoroughly enjoyed these 4 hours.
In the morning coming from Honolulu we had to get up at 4 am - no problem with that. But although we reached Big Island by 8am there was hardly anything happening ( except a short 20 minutes trip to the black sands beach which was nice) - ended up spending a lot of time in garden nursery, Macademia shop etc. All in the group felt it was such a waste of time coming to the Big Island for the first time and May be the only time. There must be more in the island to explore than having to spend time in Garden Nursery and shop outlets!
Very long day. The highlights were really the black sand beach which you see first and the volcano which you see last. The guide we had was hilarious and it was cool to see what resembled another planet.Reviewed by: Laura S, February 2014
Ww wanted to see the volcano, and it was only possible in the afternoon. All morning we visited boring things, like a macadamia nuts factory (just take us there to buy things).
It was nice, but there should be a good description of the tour.
