What people are saying about Rainbow Falls

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.

This audio tour gives a lot of information and was entertaining as well, great directions and very timely but, be sure to DOWNLOAD ALL the tours you never know and many areas have no WiFi to download later, happy travels

I was glad that the guide was careful. In addition, the explanation was excellent and easy to understand as a professional, and I was able to enjoy it from my heart.

Crystal was excellent. I learned so much and enjoyed it immensely. Starting in Hilo then onto the volcano with a telescope and astronomer was really special Thanks

We had great time. Love watching the stars was a fantastic experience. Lava tube was a wonderfull experience too. Thanks to Crystal.
