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.

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.

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

Very nice to be able to drive the island at your own pace and have some education available while doing so.

Loved thw app. And is worth the price. It helped to see Kona in my own pace
