Our guide Chris, from Nature Trails, was very informative and funny. The walk is pretty easy, especially if you do the early (sunrise) walk before it gets too hot.
The views of Waikiki from the top of Diamond Head are stunning, plus Chris was always available to take pictures of couples
Really enjoyed this tour. It was only short, but the view from Diamond Head over Waikiki is well worth the effort. Lots of stairs to climb! Highly recommend!
This was a very illuminating tour on the natural history of the Hawaiian islands and Diamond Head. Our guide Mike was very knowledgeable and friendly. The hike itself was easy and we were rewarded with a spectacular view. The only downside is that with earlier sunrise, the 0600 start meant we were too late to view it. However, you still beat the crowds at that time. Unfortunately, we had 2 people no show but caused all of us to be late as Mike had to go and make sure they really were not coming before we made a move to Diamond Head. I would still recommend this tour as numbers are small, it was super informative and good vibes.
Excellent walk up to the top of Diamond Head, the host was fab also.
I really enjoyed this adventure because of the information our tour guide gave us about the creation of Diamond Head and the history of the islands in general. That was something I would not have gotten by just hiking up there on my own. We went at a nice leisurely pace and stopped along the way for breaks and he would tell us something interesting about the geology or the plant life.
OMG! Climbing Diamond Head was awesome! Being able to arrive and see the sun still coming up and then making it to the top before noon was spectacular. The panoramic view was breathtaking! It has been three weeks since my trip; however, I am still experiencing the high from my adventures in Oahu. What an amazingly awesome trip! The most enjoyable, fun-filled trip of my life... thus far.
This sunrise hike up to the top of Diamond Head was amazing and we were so glad we did it. We were picked up and the Tour Guide was awesome from beginning to end. The atmosphere at Diamond Head was amazing. I commented to my husband that I was so glad that we did the tour-guided hike, instead of doing it on our own, because we were given so much information on the way up that it made it very worth it. The pics we took cannot be compared. We were granted a full rainbow at the top of Diamond Head. It was one of the highlights of our trip and we are so glad we went through Viator. Great company, great tour guide, great trip!!!
This was a fabulous view of Honolulu and I am so glad I scheduled it into my stay. It was good excercise but not too difficult...and participants are able to go at their own pace which is a plus. The only thing I was disappointed in was that the information I got when signing up stated that a backpack, binocculars, water, flashlight and walking staff were provided... none of which I saw anywhere. I could have used some water on the trip and didn't take any along because it was written that it was included; would have been nice to know to bring that along. And as far as the tour guide... another group that went in another vehicle from the same company, at the same time, was given more of a tour around Diamond Head with some explanation. Our driver, Eric, tooks us directly to the start and we left promptly from that same spot to head back to the hotel. Feel like our group missed out on some extra tidbits of info...but oh well. Would recommend this tour.
I loved my vacation as well as my day to Diamond Head. I was disappointed with the fact that I went on the 6am excursion in hopes to see the sun rise as I was advised I would and the sun was already up before 6. Would I do this excursion again on a return visit or recommend anybody to take the offer? Most definitely. Thanks for being included on a trip of a lifetime.
Our tour guide for the Diamond head hike was very knowledgable and informative. We received a lot of information about Hawaii on our bus ride up and even when we got to the base of Diamond Head. They taught us about the trees and gave us history about Diamond head. I would highly recommend this tour the view was amazing and the hike wasn't that bad at all :-)
The trip was great.The view was awesome. Words really cannot describe the beautiful as you look at all sides from the summit. As you climb there was beauty all around. Having a small group was wonderful and it gave our guide a chance to spend time with us. His name was Dacon and he took his time and explained the history of Diamond Head Crater. He was very knowledgeable. The climb was not too hard but I do recommend it for someone who is in somewhat good phyical shape. It was cool when we came back down that we received a certificate stating that we climbed Diamond Head. That was an added Bonus.
This was a beautiful tour. Our tour guide Eric was amazing and full of knowledge. It is quite a hike to the top of Diamond Head, but worth the sweat! Gorgeous views from the top.
Great experience. While you really don't need a guide to do the actual climb, it was nice to have her explain some of history of Diamond Head on the way out to the park.
Our guide, David, gave us an insight into Diamond Head while hiking up with the group. We made a few stops to relish the view, catch out breath, as well as learn more about the crater. Well worth getting up early for!!!
Diamond Head was a very easy 1/2 mile walk from our hotel in Waikiki. However, we opted to take this tour in order to learn the history of the crater. Without benefit of the tour guide, you really are just taking a hike on a tuff volcano on the shores of Waikiki Beach. Our tour guide provided us with the history from "birth" to present day and was most definitely worth the tour price.
