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.

My wife and I planned to spend 3 days on the Big Island, at Hilo. We long before the trip date arranged for Warren to guide us on one of those days. We exchanged emails on October 12, 2014. Warren said (in part): "I will reserve Friday, October 24, 2014 for the two of you. I need to change our... More

We did a day trip to the Big Island from Oahu so our kids could see Volcano National Park and we're so glad we did! Warren picked us up at the Hilo airport and we drove to Rainbow Falls. The kids had fun climbing some banyan trees. We then went to Kaumana Cave lava tube, which was amazing! You could... More

We had a wonderful day out birding with Warren. He picked us up at our B&B and took us to ponds in Hilo and to the forest. We learned so much, not just about birds, but about geology, native and edible plants, Hawaiian history and current events. Warren has a real appreciation for and a deep connection to the land....

I found Warren on trip advisor. We had one day to spend on the big island (flew in from Ohau for the day) and decided to spend the day at Volcano Natl Park. Warren recommended a great restaurant for breakfast - Hawaiian Style Cafe - so we took a short cab ride from Hilo airport and had breakfast before our... More
