I went on this tour with my family on June 14th in the midst of the Kilauea volcanic activities. Greatest 2-hr cave tour that should not be missed! Don't let Kilauea or the earthquakes (strongest was 5.3 during our stay in Volcano) keep you away....More

Cool cave experience! We took the 2 hour tour and although I was nervous of the small space, there was nothing small about it. The tunnels were large enough for a train to go through. So much to see! Harry had so knowledge and really...More

It's a good thing Lonely Planet exists, otherwise we might not have found this gem of volcanic Hawaii. No signs point here, no advertisements. Probably for the better, because this tour is definitely not for everyone. Down some ladders, up some ladders, and - 15m...More

Venturing into the underground world of the world's longest lava tube/cave is a unique experience. Harry, the guide/tour operator is exceptionally knowledgeable about the many features of this cave and limits the size of the group to a very comfortable 6 adults. My wife and...More

What a great find in the Volcano area. Took a 2-hour tour of an incredible lava tube - over 40 miles long as we understand. Our host was wonderfully knowledgeable, and provided a wealth of information about the cave/lava tube and its formation. Not for...More

We saw this company doing a tour when we were at the caves on our own. It seemed pretty cool for middle aged ppl, which I am. They had lunch, etc. Seemed happy.

Unique experience, memorable tour and a small group with is hard to find with all the crowds in the volcano park. On the other hand, this seems like a one man show, who has entrance to the tube through his home backyard. There are hand...More

They provide directions once you book tour. They are on private property and they have had unauthorized "visitors" who gained access and did damage to the caves. So, they do not list address. They are very safety oriented... More
