We organised a tour with Warren 6 month in advance from Aus. He was well recommended by friends. We met as arranged with no hassles. What we found impressive is how he knew all things about Hawaii - not just volcanos. He was able to share a 'natives' view of Hawaii and the history of Hawaii which we found really... More

We went to Hilo on a cruise from the mainland. We don't like booking excursions off the ship because they're usually expensive and too touristy, so I contacted a lava tour company that had high ratings. They were full the day we were going to be in Hilo, but they suggested I call Native Guide Hawaii. This ended up being... More

My sons (ages 10 and 15) and I enjoyed a great day with Warren visiting the Rainbow Falls, secluded lava tubes and Volcano National Park. Warren was able to avoid the crowds and teach us so much about the area. He was very patient and friendly with the boys and really helped us enjoy a spectacular day! Thanks Warren.

Our volcano tour with Warren was a highlight of our trip! The booking process was easy and Warren is very responsive to all your questions and requests. We're not your "typical tour" type of people when we travel either, but my husband and I were traveling with my father-in-law on this trip, so we wanted a tour of the volcanoes... More

Warren gave our multigenerational group a fascinating tour of the volcanoes national park. The kids, ranging in age from 7-10 had a wonderful time and nothing was too strenuous for my 70+ something parents. Warren gave us a rich history/cultural lesson. Just a few things to point out - 1) The description on his website made us think we were... More

We found Warren Costa through TripAdvisor. The booking process was easy; Warren was very responsive, he accommodated our requests (Akaka Falls) and had alternative solutions (Pu'u Loa petroglyph field at the VNP in place of the Puako Petroglyphs Archaeological Preserve). The tour was very personal and fun; it was adjusted to our level (not too slow, not too fast). Warren... More

Where do I start with this one. I just happened to find this tour by chance on line. (God bless the internet). Mom and I were planning our trip to the BI and I had her look up the tour to make sure she was on board with this. We both agreed it sounded like a good deal and it... More

My wife and I only had two days on the big island and really wanted to see Valcanoes National Park. The place where we were staying recommended Warren and I was glad that he actually had availability on short notice. The weather was beautiful and we had a great personal tour of the Park. Warren took us to some great... More

Warren picked us up from our B&B in Hilo and took us on a great tour and hike of Volcanoes National Park. He was extremely knowledgeable about the island, and we had a great time spending the day with him. He took us to a beautiful lunch spot on the water that we are still talking about. We highly recommend... More

We joined Warren for a fun day exploring Volcanos National Park. The entire family, from my youngest (10 years) to Granny (70 years) and even the teenagers had a great time. We visited areas we have missed on our own. A day we will never forget.
