We had a fantastic time....far better than expected

Shane Riley
Small groups ours had 12 including our guide Jim Carey. This was the best tour we have ever been on. Jim knows more about Hawai'i and Polynesian culture and lore then most locals. If you see something and you are wondering just ask him. He knows. Anyone can take this fantastic tour. There is some light hiking but if you don't want to venture far from the sprinter van you will be accommodated. Jim admittedly talks a lot and our group hung on his every word. He does not script the tour. It is based on what his clients would like to know. As you travel down Saddle Rd towards Hilo you will begin to go through the protocols. For the best experience I recommend you follow Jims instructions as he will guide you through this process. Good things come to those who follow the protocol. It also brings your group together. I don't want to give it all away. Take this tour and you might meet Uncle Jim. Aloha.

This was the best tour I have ever been on. In fact we had to drive our car back to the location and that owner of this company sat in our car and gave us a personal tour guide until were able to get on the tour bus. Chris that owner is very knowledgeable about Hawaii, and was able to answer all questions. He went as far as even showing us plants and there uses for the natives. I highly recommend this tour anyone considering it. You will be impressed as well as dinner. Thank You.

Judy Keen
Took this tour Wednesday Sept 14th, 2016 Our tour guide was Jim Carey and he was fabulous! He went out of his way to make sure that this was a life time experience. You can tell by his detailed information and attitude that this job is his definite calling. Thanks Jim and Kailani Tours! You will always be first on my list!

Helen Goldberg
Our guide was Nick Phillips. It was an absolutely wonderful trip. Nick was so knowledgeable about the island. We were lucky to see flowing lava. Dinner At the volcano was also excellent. Nick even gave us recommendation is for wonderful restaurants on the island. I highly recommend the tour.

John Nordberg
This was the best tour we have ever been on. Not just Hawaii, but anywhere in the world. Nick Phillips was incredible. We could not believe the quality of the dinner we had and how nice the restaurant was. It was one of the best meals we had in Hawaii. I would give it ten stars if I could.

Yiyi Zhang
The tour was really good. We had great food, visited the Volcano Nation park and
learned a lot about the 2018 eruptions. Our tour guide Chris was very
knowledgeable and answered all of our questions.
