We wanted a one day trip to the "Big Island" and decided on- One-Day Hawaii Volcano Eco-Adventure Tour from Maui with Big Island Volcano Tour from Maui. The day started early and ended late... BUT we had a great time. From the minute we landed at the airport-Steve our tour guide was there to meet us and made us feel like Ohana (family in Hawaiian). During our entire tour of Volcanoes National Park he was a wealth of information. We had many stops and he always kept us on time for the final stop-the breath taking view at dusk of the caldera. Truly a sight to see. Mahalo Steve for a great day

We did the one day Maui to Big Island volcano tour. Price includes all flights and the tour itself. Our driver YB was very well informed, full of information and tales of Hawaaiin legends. . We saw waterfalls, banyan trees and a great shortbread cookie factory before heading up to Kilauea itself. The volcano and the many miles of Volcanoes National Park really is a wonder to behold. Plenty of stops to wonder around and take photos. We visited the Caldera twice, during the day to see the steam and at night to see the steam lit up by the lava. Amazing. We also visited the Thurston Lava Tube which was pretty amazing too. All in all a long but very interesting day

We experienced the Big Island Hawaii Volcano Eco-Adventure Tour with Steve. We flew over from Maui and he was the perfect host and guide from the moment we met him in the lobby of the airport at Hilo. Our bus had 20 people from every culture. He was very knowledgeable about the island, Hawaiian history and legends and especially the volcano park. Not only was he knowledgeable but excited and passionate about everything he was telling the group. He stopped at places he thought were important sites for us to see, he even stopped for us to grab a picture of the rare Nene. We had lunch in Hilo in a restaurant at one of the hotels, we could have the buffet or order a burger which was big enough for two. The gift shop had snacks and drinks to purchase before the departure to the volcano park. For dinner, we ate at the military cafeteria up in the park, it was good and affordable and hit the spot right before seeing the sunset. We highly recommend this organized tour and wish he could've taken on us on all our tours throughout Hawaii. HIGHLY RECOMMEND...WORTH THE MONEY! If you're going to spend the money to go to Hawaii, it's worth a little more to enjoy this all day tour.

I tried booking one of the Eco tours for me and my wife on the phone using a coupon from the Entertainment book but was told it was not valid, even though it was dated to expire 12/31. On Tuesday, I booked an Eco tour for us online for Thursday. I was emailed Wednesday afternoon notifying me that the tour I wanted was booked and to call them. When I called, they asked when I was going to leave (Saturday) and told me that they were upgrading one of the tours on Friday to the tour I wanted, for which 4 seats remained. I made sure that they were going to the locations we wanted, since we had been to many of the locations on another circle island tour last year. I accepted two of the seats. On Friday, we were to be picked up at 8:25am. At 8:30 I called just to ensure the tour was going as planned and that we were still doing the Eco tour we had selected (Ultimate Circle Island Eco Adventure). They assured me the shuttle was on its way and that we were doing the tour we selected. We were picked up at our hotel late and then taken to where we met up with our tour operator. After we got on the tour shuttle, the driver asked what we wanted for lunch, which we had previously selected online. The lunch selections were not the same as what was offered online, so we knew something was amiss. None of the others on the tour had swimming suits because they said they were called the night before and told the Eco tour was not going to go. We then asked the driver about the tour and found out that he was doing his originally planned tour, which did not include the unique locations we wanted to see. He further said that our tour had already been discounted to reflect the new price. I called the Discover Hawaii Adventures phone number and relayed what was occurring. Even though the driver was unaware of any changes, they told me that the driver was going to do the modified tour. Obviously, there was a communication issue... While waiting on the phone, the tour took off, leaving my wife and I on the other side of Waikiki from our hotel. Discover Hawaii had no interest in getting my wife and I back to our hotel; however, they did decide to refund our tour, which will take up to a couple weeks. Needless to say, we will never book anything through Big Island Volcano Tour from Maui in the future.

normally, when I go on vacation anywhere I always go on on my own and never plan much. When I visited Hawaii in 2014 for my son's re-enlistment I booked a Discover Hawaii tour on a whim and am so glad I did. Learned a ton and am so glad I was able to just sit back and enjoy rather than looking at maps all the time and trying to figure out traffic and parking! Anyone that goes to Hawaii should book a tour with you guys----it is MOST worthwhile!

Just wanted to thank Big Island Volcano Tour from Maui for arranging yet another excellent holiday package for us. All the flights, accommodation, sight seeing etc. were on spot as usual. Booking with you not only attains a good deal for us but takes the worry out of arranging all the details. Will definitely be using your services again. Mahalo!

SCAM COMPANY - DO NOT BOOK ANYTHING WITH THEM. They have taken almost $1000 from us when we booked for the Chief Sielu Luau. Then I received an email 22nd May saying that that Luau was no longer available and asked me to call them. I called them (from Australia at my expense) and she asked for the credit card details again so she could refund me and told me to book Paradise Cove Luau with another company, which we did at the same cost. However it no refund has been issued and after chasing them on multiple occasions they no inform me there is a ‘glitch’ with their bank where it will not let them refund to the credit card and they will issue a cheque instead which of course will bounce. They are offering all sorts of tours etc DO NOT BOOK ANYTHING WITH Big Island Volcano Tour from Maui

This service is an absolute joke. I booked a luau in the beginning of May. Following up, I invited more friends to Hawaii with me and wanted to add them to...
