We spent the day with Mark who showed us the Hilo area and up and down the coast from there. He was informative and showed us beautiful beaches and took us to out of the way places along the way.

We found Mark at Hawaii Volcano Tours through his www.lavatours.com website. We decided to call and discuss a custom tour by telephone. We told him what we were interested in, and with his help and suggestions, put together a perfect custom off the beaten path tour that sounded good to both the adults and kids. When we arrived at Hilo,... More

We did the helicopter tour and it was very nice! The volcano had a little bit of spill and the scenery is well worth the time...

Four of us from work knew we wanted to have part of our Hawaii trip be a guided driving tour - but we weren't sure we could all get to see the sights we all wanted. Searching online we called up Hawaii Lava Tours and got a customized group tour for just the four of us that was fantastic! Mark... More

Had a great day on the island of Hawai'i with Mark. My partner and I flew in for the day from Oahu just to experience another island. We were vacationing from Bangkok and in the Hawaiian islands for a conference. Mark recommended the "Off the Beaten Track" tour and it more than met our expectations! He was a great guide... More

Well...this trip we didn't get take one of their tours as the lava wasn't flowing into the ocean. However we did take their tour in 2010 in the fall. I got incredible photographs. They are well organized and provide a great trip with lots of time next to the lava. Be sure to check the lava flow conditions and go... More

What can I say outside of Mark was absolutely the BEST guide I could have asked for! After communicating with him prior to our trip, I hoped that he would be great and I must say, I was blown away! He took us (my parents and me) on a personal tour and took into consideration the fact that my dad... More

We started the day off with a pick up at our hotel. We went to the lava fields and hiked all over the fields all the way to the live lava flows. We stayed and played with the lava and weren't pressured to hurry up - the tour was on our time. After that, we went to a gorgeous black... More

We had a great time. The lava fields were awesome. We found a hot spot where lava was flowing under our feet that produced enough heat to catch a small branch on fire.
