Our tour guide Korina (apologies if I mispelled or got wrong) was fantatic—very welcoming and informative. My wife and I went with two other couples so the experience during the commute and hike felt intimate and easygoing (versus feeling a bit overwhelmed by being thrown into a large bus-sized group of people). Throughout the journey, our guide always checked in on us and asked each couple if we would like her to take photos of us on our phones and as many as we wish just in case we wanted any redos. It wasn’t a very long drive, but we were taken to a beautiful lookout point over all of Honolulu and then we drove straight to Monoa Falls. The guide was patient and full of conversation and made the experience easy on us. Luckily, the waterfall at the top was flowing heavy (we went early June (very hot) but the mountains had some consistent rain the night before the hike), which wasn’t a make or break for us, but it was a sweet cherry on top. Highly recommend if you’re looking for a great tour to capture magical memories without feeling like you burned a day from exploring away from the beach.


I travelled to Hawaii as a solo traveller, and this was one of my top things to do is visit Manoa Falls. Absolutely loved doing this tour! It was just three of us including our tour guide individuals who made this experience even better. They provide you with ponchos, water bottles and walking sticks, if needed. (The walking sticks are very helpful!). Thank you for this great opportunity to visit a beautiful site! :)


We read several reviews just raving about this particular tour guide named Robert. Every 5 Star Review had Robert as the tour guide. As one can imagine, we were really happy when our driver picked us up and it was the famous “Five Star” Robert! He definitely lived up to his reputation. Funny, knowledgeable, and so expressive with his body language and voice. The ride, and Robert’s driving, was smooth, the hike relaxed, and Robert kept the group together and engaged the whole time. The falls were SPECTACULAR!! The view from the top of Tantalus was stellar. The trip was enjoyable from the start to finish.


Robert was our tour guide. He was great at guiding us up and down the hike to the waterfall and back. He really went the extra mile. It was really nice to have a tour guide on this hike


Amazing experience! Will, our tour guide, was informative and funny and went over and above. Thank you so much for a great experience. I will definitely be recommending this company in and hope to use again on a future trip to Hawaii!


The waterfall was beautiful and worth the hike up. Alittle steep and loose rocks and quite muddy. Out your said it came with. If spray however we did not get any and they are a lot of mosquitos. Didn’t see much benefit from the tour when you can do it on your own, other than transportation.


Our guide was great, knowledgeable, and patient. Hike was easy enough even after the heavy rain and the waterfall was beautiful! Worth the hike!!


Robert our guide was FANTASTIC! He was very informative and kept the hike at steady pace. He made sure we were ok walking the trail. I highly recommend.


Chris was great guide. Well knowledgeable and professional. Very energetic. Learned a lot about local plants and some customs. Tour was perfect for a couple of 60 year olds who loved to hike.


Super fun! Even though it rained the whole time we were there! But still beautiful to be in nature !!
