Warren Costa is the best! Knowledgeable, highly intelligent and a wonderful guide to the park. We saw things and safely took hikes we never would alone. He has great vibes, explained geological phenomena and made everything better to see and experiece. Definitely worth the money and a much better way to see the park.

This was one of the highlights of our trip to the Big Island. We have two girls, ages 19 and 21, and they also had a fabulous time. Warren took us on an amazing hike to the rim of one of the volcanoes. What an experience that was! He was informative about the park (was a park ranger at one... More

Our family of 5 (ages 6 month-61) were on a 7 day cruise. Instead of the standard cruise ship excursion we hired Warren to provide the flexibility that traveling with a 6 month old requires. He was very patient and showed us the best day of our cruise. He knows his way around Volcanos area (Park and extras) and can... More

My tour with Warren was one of the highlights of my trip to Hawaii. We did a wonderful hike to a fabulous little swimming area off the Puna coast. It is a place I would never have found on my own and it was a great opportunity to see some wonderful wildlife including whales, turtles and (we are pretty sure)... More

Absolutely the best value of our trip. We had a wonderful time with Warren as he showed us around the park. We had a great time as Warren showed us things he obviously loves and finds fascinating. No question was too inane and none was met with uncertainty. We had a great time and his timing was incredible as we... More

We had a fabulous day with Warren. He paced the day to suit our needs and showed us things that we would never have seen on our own. The lunch that he provided was excellent. Very memorable.

There is usually more to a story than meets the eye. With Warren as our guide, we visited several locations in the park that we would never have visited on our own and learned so much! Warren adjusts each tour based on the interests of his guests and their physical abilities - I have a special interest in trees and... More

We had a fantastic time with Warren Costas. What a wonderful and insightful guide. It was nice having our own personal guide to show us the beauties of Volcano National park. We were able to get away from tour buses and go to places away from the touring crowds. We loved the Native prospective . We highly recommend Warren's services.

We booked a tour with Warren Costa, not knowing what to expect. Before you read anymore, the tour was fantastic! There were three of us in our party. Warren picked us up from the airport at about 9:00am His tour was seemed to be custom made for us, not a canned bus tour. We loved seeing tour buses with 50... More
