Very informative and enjoyed that you can pick up at any point of a tour. We could stay at each location as long as wanted and skip things not of interest or short on time. Note a few places may no longer be open due to Covid shut down. Also missed a few turns where gps was off tour slightly. Tour guide was fun and a bit silly at times which lightened the trip.

Way more options than you can possibly do in one week! I loved the Volcanoes National Park tour. It steered us to the best sites and which scenic pullouts were not needed after already seeing craters and lava. The arch is worth the drive. Also used a portion of the Southern island audio for the other National Park. Hope to come back and do other sights that we missed the first time.
