Would Do Again!

Tour bus was comfortable, and Tom, our guide, was top-notch. Knowledgeable, engaging, and had great flexibility/awareness about what the group wanted to do. We even made a stop to look at another geothermal area on our way home. A wonderful experience through and through, would do again.

Geologic trip of a lifetime

Wanting to be guided safely and professionally to see the volcano. Our guide picked up each party at their hotels, drove us to the staring point, accompanied us all - of differing abilities - and returned us safely back to his Mercedes touring van. He gave us his cellphone number and instructions when to call, such as being separated. My wife and I did not make it all the way to the top of the hike, but we were not expecting to, and were overjoyed to see the lava flow in the Natthagi valley. That portion of the trip was an easy and flat. An unexpected thrill was seeing the many varieties of alpine wildflowers along the trail, juxtaposed with lava flows.

Great experience!

Once in a lifetime time experience. Everything was well organised and our guide was very friendly. I highly recommend it!
