... lava tube was ok, went to a macadamia place and had lunch,not included, had a hotdog,was quiet nice actually, um the tour was only $70 each and was meant to go till 2.30 but we got back at 4.15, the driver was fairly knowledgable,but we couldn't here him half the time and he told us a lot of what Scotty ( from day before tour) had told us.. Was not a fantastic day but we did get to see a lot of Hilo although it was a little tiring, only tipped $10. , we gave Scotty ($20) I would ...
