Our Guide, John, met us at the the Volcano House and the adventure began there. We hiked our way down the valley and back up all while learning so many interesting facts about the plants in the jungle to the plants growing from the cracks in the lava rock. We hiked and we rested and we made our way out to the crater rim and saw the glowing, spewing lava. We couldn’t have asked for a better day. Thank you John!! Our favorite tree is by far the Ohia Tree and the beautiful red blossom.

Michelle Chaco was an amazing guide! She is extremely knowledgeable about the volcanic activity and history as well as the plants, lava, minerals found in the park. Her understanding of the Hawaiian culture and history is a wonderful addition to her discourse while leading the hikes. She is extremely friendly, caring, and fun. Thank you to Michelle for an amazing 6 hrs in Volcano Natl Park!

volcanoes in the rain

tour guide, Nathan was very knowledgeable and entertaining. he showed us interesting and scenic things that we would probably not have found on our own (lava tube from 1300 eruption, echo caldera, etc.). And he did all of this in the pouring down rain. he must have some duck genes, because it didn't seem to affect him at all. he was so interesting, that we sometimes forgot it was raining.

There are not enough words to express the amazing tour we experienced with Erik of Kilauea Echoguides. The knowledge and passion for sharing the immense information for the Volcano, the earth, the rocks was incredible. We were outdoors, touching the earth, learning about volcano's, earthquakes the current activity, the past activity, visiting area's that a tour bus couldn't go. This tour will be a lifetime memory, and we are already planning a future return to Kilauea. ERIC ROCKS's!!!! This is a Pele approved tour.

We schedled the 3 hour eco tour with Eric - what a fantastic experience. Our group of 8 included family members ranging from 75 to 8 years old. Eric was so well prepared for our group. Everyone came away singing praises of the day. The 14 year old boy said it felt like no more than one hour not three. Each one of us would highly recommend this tour. Money well spent!!!!
