Rob was an outstanding guide!!!! He went out of his way to get us close to the lava!!! Having access to the private parking was a big plus. He provide a wonderful lunch where we had the opportunity to swim in the hot ponds. Rob was also kind enough to make a few stops and point out some incredible sights on the way back. I would definitely use Rob again. Thanks Rob!!!!!
