We knew visiting Mt. Yasur was going to be special besides all the reviews we have read. Being very accesible, it brings crowds so although it is a very special experience, it is not magical. Also, the company running the tours is charging a large...More

Amazing to be on the rim of an active volcano. We visited in the afternoon and still there when it got dark. So you could really see the lava.

So glad we did this, the drive to the volcano isn't that bad, ok it is bumpy but they drive slowly, so its not like you get thrown around. It is a steep climb up & the railing is wobbly, but worth it. I did...More
