DANNY! Great tour guide. Made the tour fun an exiting. Gave a lot of information about the area, plants, culture and history of the volcano. Made sure that we got breaks when we needed it along with lots of water. The hot springs was great and super relaxing. I would love to stay at that resort!


The guide on this tour was very knowledgeable and showed us a lot of things. We really enjoyed the hike on the lava flows! A nice experience, a great walk. I would have started this a bit earlier, however... Maybe recommend the day at the hot springs? I think we would have liked the option to have more time at the spa. Then get picked up in the afternoon to go on the hike, then back to the hot springs. I would not have recommended the dinner, however. It was very expensive for what it was, and since we ate later, the choice of food was not as extensive.
