This is a long overdue mahalo from all of us for our incredible volcano tour. It was everything we anticipated and so much more. I had been there before but with you, I felt I was seeing it for the first time. Our traveling companions are still talking about our day and feel this was a highlight of our trip. Your knowledge and gentle manner was engaging and your aloha for the aina so apparent. Also, tailoring your tour to four seniors was very much appreciated.Thank you, Warren, for a day we will long treasure (the lunch was so ono too!).

"What a wonderful day of special experiences we've had today! Many thanks for all the memories of what makes the Big Island so unique. You have a personal gift of knowledge and kindness that you've shared with us today, and my whole family is better for it and most grateful.
Your volcano tour was truly memorable"

appreciation for the world that is the Big Island!"

- Mark and Hilma Jones

"Warren, Thanks for a great day. You took us places I thought we wouldn't go. Thanks for sharing
your culture and history with us. You made us feel like we have known you our whole life!"

- Gregg and Nannette Lowe

"Your volcano tour is amazing! We learned so much more than we would have on a tour bus type tour.
We have been to the Big Island before, but this gave us a fresh, local perspective.
Everyone should give this tour a try!"

- Dave and Laurie Taylor

"My Japanese wife loved having Warren show us around! He knew all of the ins and outs of the Big Island. My wife really appreciated his perfect pronunciation. This guide would be perfect for non - native speakers to experience this beautiful place and even practice their English. It was the best land trip we have had anywhere. We couldn't recommend this tour any more highly!"

- Paul and Mizusu Gregg

"We have always avoided tours, but this one was perfect.
We loved the 'off the beaten path' quality and the thorough exploration of the sights."

- Carolyn White and Steven Seidenberg

"A most compelling trip - a glimpse into not just the physical depths and the compexities of Hawaii, but also the culture with a person of broad understanding and knowledge."

- John and Janet Krommes

Warren, that hike out to the the active lava flow was awesome. I wish all my friends could go on a Hawaii volcano tour like the one we did. Hopefully we'll be back!
- Ian Walker
