We just had the best time! Our tour guide Terii was knowledgeable about the plants, animals, geography/geology, and Hawaiian history. We are hikers, not bikers, and we came prepared with proper hiking shoes and our trekking poles. What we couldn’t have predicted was the sudden rain (but hey, it’s a rainforest!), but Terii had ponchos! It was advertised as pickup at 9, 4 hours, and we had booked Iolani Palace for 2:45, so Terii made sure we were back by 1. Too bad, though, because he was prepared with snacks and was willing to go farther. The terrain was moderate and we (in our 70s) had no problems. Gorgeous views. Definitely recommend it!


The guide, Terii was amazing. He has knowledge of the plants, the wildlife, the geology , Hawai’i history and Hawaiian cultures - where people came from, how they lived hundreds of years ago, etc. Plus, the rainforest was teeming with plants and animals that we wouldn’t have even noticed without his trained eyes.


The description was not at all what the tour was. The tour guide was a nice guy but he did not know much about the history and we didn’t see much. It was not worth the money at all. There was some pretty look out points but if you were looking for a hike with pretty rainfalls and streams, do not book this.


Everything!!! The calm and the beauty of the rainforest. We took our time and went at our own pace. Our tour Guide was also amazing!!!


Our guide Daniel is a master at what he does trust me when I say you are literally in great hands with this gentleman. My family and I went on this trail today in the jungle hike. For me personally it was terrifying as I am literally afraid of heights. Daniel was very patient as I literally inched my way through out the trail my family however they were having a blast just running through the mountain side like it was nothing. All in all our awesome guide Daniel was superman today. Please if in Hawaii, Ohahu specifically please check out Bike Hawaii tours and demand / request Daniel as your guide. You'd be in great hands. It's a hike of a lifetime.


Terii is remarkably knowledgeable about all things Hawaii, from history and culture to botany. I’ve been to Hawaii ten times and learned more on this half-day hike than all of the other trips put together!


This tour was very fun and informative! The tour guide Daniel was extremely knowledgeable and courteous. The hike was beautiful and the views were amazing. The trail is very muddy FYI. Enjoy!


Terii was a great guide -- super kind and very knowledgeable. We had a fun time. Thank you, The Cassels


Our guide was great telling us about the forest, the plants along with how they got here, and even some politics. We would take another adventure with him in a heart beat. The trail is not easy.


The tour guide was amazing from start to finish. The weather was awesome and it was not muddy on our trip. The scenery was breathtaking and it was most enjoyed by all of us. I would highly recommend this trip.
