  • Fantastic bike ride! Such a great way to see the Volcano and surrounding area. Very relaxed and an easy bike ride, when we finished the ride we were left wanting more. Pick up from the cruise terminal was easy and our driver Pretty was very friendly, funny and knowledgeable. Aaron our bike tour guide very friendly and knowledgeable as well. This was a highlight of our trip to Hawaii.

  • Overall, a good bike ride and tour. Our tour guide was a recent geologist graduate and very knowledgable about the area and the volcanos. I would rate it a 4-5, but unfortunately a few of us experienced a terrible bike crash about half way through. It began to rain during our tour and the guide and van driver did not warn any of us about how slick the road would get. And to make matters worse, the tour guide led the way on the bikes and went way too fast. We hit a turn and 1 bike skidded out and crashed, which caused another biker to swerve into traffic and take a very hard crash on the road four other bikers skidded hard also, and narrowly prevented themselves from taking hard road crashes. This accident obviously ruined 2 of the bikers trip, as they both were bleeding and had large cuts on their legs and arms, and this put a sour mood on the entire tour for the remaining time. I realize accidents can happen, but these experienced tour guides could have easily prevented this by just setting the lead pace at a very slow pace and warning all about the keeping their speeds down on the wet roads. To make matters worse, if you read the review from 2015, another person mentioned this same issue and said his wife broke 2 ribs when she crashed. Therefore, the owner and guides should know about this issue and take measures to prevent it when it is raining.

  • We had a great time. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the park. The tour was well organized from start to finish. The 25 dollar entrance fee to the park was not included in the price of the tour which we were not notified of at the time of purchase.

  • Had a great day....but was not as challenging as I was expecting....perhaps my bad for not investigating further....but found far too tame for my liking....Guides were friendly and informative and regular checking back to ensure that all were doing okay.....Would have loved the option of full down hill experience to water where we stopped for lunch....would have been more enjoyable than driving down in van....good for those looking for a leisurely ride ...or those with small kids

  • Our tour guide was knowledgeable, friendly and made the tour super enjoyable.

    Our driver was funny, charismatic and reliable.

    My friend and I had a great time and left us wishing to visit the Volcano National park again!

    Thank you for a great experience!

  • We had a lovely day. Our guide was a geologist and very knowledgeable. It was a great way of seeing all the different aspects of the volcano park and we were able to decide on what we want to explore more over the next few day. We were fully supported by a vehicle with another wonderful guide with lots of snacks, water and a lovely lunch. The bikes were in good condition. The whole family had a fantastic time teenagers, young adults and us oldies. The only suggestion we would make is that rather than have lunch at the end of crater road where it is really exposed and no shade to have lunch at the top before going home.

  • So much fun!! This was our first activity on the island, and it was the perfect way to get a taste of Volcanos National Park. Our guide was fun and knowledgeable, and patient with all types of riders. There were two or three hills that were tougher than others, so be prepared. It's not all completely downhill, but it's not terribly difficult. We did not need jackets at all. The van follows pretty closely behind, so we never felt like we would be stranded if we lost the group that wanted to go faster. Not too much traffic on the roads to avoid. We would do this tour again for sure. The entire national park is a treasure!

  • This was a great way to explore Volcano National Park. This is a guided bike tour with frequent stops at points of interest such as craters, Lava tube, etc. An easy pace should be manageable for any rider, mostly downhill. Our guide was knowledgeable about the formations and history of the islands. A great way to spend some time.

  • We actually ended up taking the Summit Tour since there were not enough people for this one. They did their best to accommodate us but the alternate date did not work. Gwendolyn was very helpful in getting the change made. The organizers provided everything we needed including rain gear - a must for the day we went. They also gave good attention to safety and sustenance for the ride. Mike was an entertaining and informative tour guide while on our bikes. Pretty drove the support vehicle and also information about some of the sites. We would highly recommend this tour. The group was small - only ten in ours with a max of twelve - the staff was very personable.

  • Really had a great time on the bike tour. Tour guide was exceptional. He took time will all level of riders which we had. We had a great time and would recommend to anyone.
