It was fun. It was nice to get out, and see a lot of the park on a bicycle. We were at Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park which is also a refuge for endangered species, and those species of plants and animals indigenous to the islands. There is no better way to experience it all than either to walk or ride... More

From pick up, to drop off and everything in between, this tour was awesome. The staff were happy, friendly and knowledgeable.
