My 10-year-old daughter and I recently spent a day touring the Volcano National Park area with Warren. He picked us up at the Hilo airport and took us on a brief but fascinating adventure to see volcano country. Warren tailored the tour to match our interests and, since he is a native Hawaiian, provided us with a holistic view of... More

After contacting Warren online, my fiancée and I confirmed our tour. Warren from the outside was very accommodating even picking us up from the airport. Not only was the tour amazing due to the scenery but the local knowledge which could only be provided by someone born and bred in Hilo is second to none. Warren went at our pace... More

Warren is well organized, knowledgeable, and very attuned to his guests. He readily judged the capabilities of our party and adjusted the pace and itinerary accordingly. He is also very personable, and makes the day quite enjoyable. He is also a much better option than the larger tours - you get more personal service and much more information on the... More

We were a group of 4 and enjoyed our day with Warren. He picked us up at our place in Volcano, and we talked about what we'd done/would like to see. He decided that hiking to Mauna Ulu would be a good experience for us. The hike was great, and Warren was very knowledgeable about geology, volcanology and biology. It... More

We had the most amazing time on our honeymoon with Warren. He took us off the beaten path in volcanoes national park. By far the best tour we did in all of Hawaii. Don't take the boring bus tours this is the way to go! Once in a lifetime experience!Thanks Warren!

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
