What you really have to consider is, are personal tours of the Big Island of Hawai’i really what I want for my family, and/or, small group? Here are a few questions that you may ask yourself.
Will we be able to site see and adventure at our own pace?
Do we want our own personal guide to show us around the island, sharing their knowledge of the island and volcanoes with us? Always there to answer any questions we may have.
Do we want the ability to make a quick stop along the way to our destination should something interesting catch our eye that isn’t scheduled on the tour?
Do we want to avoid being part of a large crowd and just keep the tour to ourselves, the guide, and maybe a few other people?
If you are finding yourself becoming wide-eyed and relentlessly nodding your head in the affirmative, then chances are we’re for you!
We here at The Volcano Van have a passion for the Big Island of Hawai’i and the volcanoes that call it home. The best way for us to share that passion with you is to keep our tour groups small. Many other tour companies use full-sized buses to escort their large number of guests around the island. We prefer to keep it a much more low-scale affair. Don’t get us wrong, we don’t have anything against buses. They’re great when used for mass transit purposes, not so much when trying to get an up close and personal look at one of the most fascinating and diverse islands on the planet.
Because we keep it small, we’re able to cater to you and your family’s needs. If we’re stopped at a place and you want to stay a little longer, just let us know. We’re not going to blow a whistle after 20 minutes and have you herd back into those buses we mentioned. There are times when our guests see something that is interesting and we’ll stop and check it out for a few minutes. The Big Island of Hawai’i is not a place that should be rushed through. You’d be surprised as to how many people think that the wild goats here are adorable and picture worthy. We believe that the journey should be just as exciting as the destination.
Basically, to sum it all up, we really think you’ll have a heck of a fun time with us. We’re passionate about what we do, and we want to share the excitement and knowledge of this beautiful paradise with you and your loved ones (unless you plan on coming alone, then that’s cool too.)
If you feel like this is for you, (and honestly, we don’t see why it wouldn’t be) head on over to the tours and booking area to set aside some time for us to show you around these volcanoes you’ve heard so much about.
We look forward to seeing you and anyone else you bring along to share in the adventure.
