We visited Hawaii for the first time with another couple, and we went to the big island specifically to visit Volcano National Park. We had some hesitation in paying for a guide, since we figured we could read all about it and find the lava flow, etc. however, we would do it all over again. Robert is a very knowledgeable guide who shared a lot of information with us that we would not have gotten on our own. He was great to keep in contact with us about what time we should arrive, and the importance of that as it was getting daylight earlier each day, and he wanted to make sure we had a good period of darkness to view the lava. We arrived right on time, he drove us to the area where we took a short hike to the lava, and we were treated to amazing views. As he drove us to other areas in the park, he was careful to avoid rainy places that he noted in the distance, so we could enjoy our tour without rain (stay on the big island for a week and you will understand our appreciation). Not only is Robert enthusiastic in sharing his volcano knowledge, he is also well versed in the flora and fauna of the area. We asked lots of questions, and our 4 tour was over too quickly. At his suggestion we then ate breakfast at the Lava House, which ended up being the perfect thing to do after our tour.

The volcano park tour with Rob was fun and informative, and he even took photos of the volcano for us! He showed us the amazing sites around the park (lava trees, Thurston lava tube) while sharing historical details and his own experiences with the volcanoes and the park. He gave us useful tips and recommendations for sights and places to shop and eat. I highly recommend this tour, especially if you would like to get up before dawn to see the glow of the volcano. Our time at the park would not have been as good without Rob’s information and guidance.

We had a great tour of volcanoes National park with Jodi. It was exactly what we were looking for and she really helped us make the most of our time in the park. We had an amazing experience viewing the lava before sunrise and then toured all the highlights of the park (plus some) after that. Jodi was knowledgeable, prepared, friendly and made the tour interesting/engaging for our whole family. Highly recommend!

We took the 6 hour Volcano National Parks tour with Jodi in mid-April. It was an absolutely spectacular experience for our family. First we got to see the lava flowing from the volcano. After that, Jodi showed us all around the park giving us information about the landscape, the birds and flowers, and the history of the area. My kids say this was the highlight of their trip to the Big Island. We would highly recommend taking a tour with Big Island VIP.

Went in January. Flexible Scheduling, Jodi recommended the best time to visit the park and maximize your experience. She handles all the photos for you so you can focus on enjoying the experience. It was so easy to contact her and coordinate the tour. My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary and Jodi got a lei and a box of Big Island Chocolate candies to surprise my wife. Jodi is so knowledgeable about the park and its wildlife so you don't just see the volcano but also the flora and fauna. It was rare to see Nene ducks with their ducklings and other birds but we got to see them since Jodi knew where to spot them. Safe private experience for your group especially during Covid times. Don't worry about snacks...Jodi provided these. One of the best activities we had on the Big Island.

We loved our time with Rob on the volcano National park tour. Well worth it! He was very informative and had a great presentation. He took many pictures at the volcano stops along the way. Lava tube was beautiful as well as the rainforest it is nestled in!
We highly recommend this!

Great private tour option. You have the guide and the entire van to yourself. Rob was very knowledgeable. Shared lots of tips for us to do on our own after the tour. Provided link to lots of free pictures you can download. Easy to meet up a the park visitors center.

Highly recommend!
