We booked an almost 8 hour tour with Dynamic Tours for our family of 8, including 3 children. The guide was terrific! We started wit Richardson Black Sand Beach,then the Japanese Gardens, then to a coffee and chocolate factory where we saw chocolate being made and were given samples of chocolate and coffee. We passed the statue of the king, saw an amazing waterfall, We then went up through Volcano National Park. It was quite different than the last time because we were last there before the volcano erupted and were disappointed no to see the lava flowing as before. We wanted the children and grandchildren to see it, but it was still very interesting and all were amazed at what it was looking like now. After we went to the Mona Loa chocolate factory where they make amazing chocolate. This was a very comprehensive tour, and the guide was great!

This was a very good tour that covered all the bases of Hilo, Hawaii. Steve, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and fun. Unfortunately, we expected a tour of the volcanoes and areas related thereto. The tour doesn't actually get to the volcano area until dark so we did not get to see any of the surrounding areas during daylight. I will re-read the tour description. Maybe we did not understand the tour activities.

Im sharing this review as I feel there are a lot of questions out there regarding this tour and I want to help people choose the best one. Booking: I agree with others that it is awkward as there is not a lot of clarity. I was told pickup at noon verbally through a phone call although they arrived at 11am and were about to leave at 11:20am as I was not there even though I was in the lobby since 10:30am. Website is unclear as in one place it says pickup from Hilo Hotels between 11am - 11:10am and departure at 12:15pm from Hilo area. Dont worry, the tour is legit and hits all the hot spots, pun intended. Tour Guide: I forget her name but I will call her Sassy as she has a fun sarcastic sense of humor that takes a moment and disclosures to get used to. Sassy was extremely knowledgeable about the island, volcano, history, and traffic which came in handy. Tour Vehicle: Maybe the real vehicle was in the shop although we drove in a white van with windows. Not the 2015 Starcraft Van that was advertised although got us around. For the cost of the tour, it didnt surprise me. Tour: You hit all the spots on the list. The less important ones youll only spend 10 mins at such as the black sand beach, Orchid garden, and rainbow falls. You will spend most of your time in the volcano area hiking, driving thru the park, and observing the volcano. Lunch: Vague in the description and this could have been way better. We had a choice of a few global fast food joints such as Kentucky Fried Chicken. Personally, a choice of local spots would have better culture, local businesses, and delicious. Volcano Viewing: While great, it could have been awesome. We arrived at Jaggar Museum which is the observation area for the crater to see the lava glow at 5:20pm with sunset at 6:03pm and dusk starting at 6:27pm. We did see glow although not at total darkness which is way better. We had to get back in the bus at 6:25pm to get some tour folks to the airport for their 8:48pm flight. Needless to say we arrived at the airport at 7:15pm which was super early. We stayed overnight and paid the price missing what I believe is the highlight of the tour. Overall, it was a good tour although fell far short of expectations at booking, tour van quality, lunch, and time spent watching lava glow. Sassy did a fine job although I wish she left the observation area 15 minutes later. Recommendations: If I were to do it again, I would rent my own car and do the tour myself. For those coming just for the day and dont want to be bothered by renting a car or enjoy being toured around, this is a good option. Just understand your view of the lava glow is dependent upon the time of your departing flight or for those also in your tour group.
