Beautiful hike, with several stages to see the lava flow, the volcanoes national park, the Kilauea caldera, all fascinating and interesting. The visit to the vinery with tasting and dinner was also very good. Recommended excursion.

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.

Good thing it was not spoken in Spanish too.
