This was a great small group tour. We had a group of about 10 people. Mandy, our guide, was very knowledgeable about all aspects of the nature of Hawaii. She shared info about the geology, plants, animals and birds. The hike up Diamond Head was a bit challenging and we had a diverse group but she did a great job of pacing the climb for varied abilities. I would recommend this to anyone who was some exercise and would like some inside information about Hawaii.
A must on Oahu. The beauty of the crater and the views are breath taking. Our guide was very knowledgable.
Great hike takes about 20-25 mins. Great view. Bring your camera
It was great. Jason our guide had lots of interesting information about trees, plants and the history of diamond head and Oahu! Good time!
Tour guide very knowledgeable and gave lots of information. On arrival it was a fine day but then weather quickly changed to a downpour. It turned the path into a river and everyone was wet through but still worth it when you arrived at the top. Weather affected the views from the top but still worth the trip. Highly recommended
Excellant!!!! Was a lot of fun. Our Tour Guide , Jason, was great too!!!!
Very enjoyable tour and Greg was a great guide. He was very knowledgeable, personable and entertaining. I would definitely take another tour with him as the guide!
This was a great tour to book. Our Guide Greg was amazing! He was a trained Parks Ranger and had travelled all over the world. The tour company is soo lucky to have someone with his experience. We felt so safe going up to the top with him nearby and his knowledge was great! It's an amazing hike, just bring water!
Fantastic hike. Fantastic tour guide. Fantastic views. I highly recommend this tour!
Brilliant tour. Easy process.
I was picked up from my hotel on time, the tour itself was very informative and our guide was brilliant.
I very much enjoyed the trek as you could go at your own pace and there was sufficient time to enjoy the scenery. Will go again. Thanks! Travelled from Western Australia
Early start to the day but well worth it. Justin was a smashing guide, friendly, sensible, shared his knowledge and made everyone comfortable.
Great views, the walk/hike was fine but we were surprised to see toddlers and young children not in our group - tough on the parents!! Thanks Justin
Excellent tour, great views, tour guide was very good, very kind and knows very very much. Thanks
*The only cons was the day heat.
Well organised, tour guide knew her stuff excellent value for money, well worth doing
My husband and I really enjoyed the sunrise hike up Diamondhead. We chose to do this hike our very last morning on the island. It was the best way to end our trip. Our guide was very informative and helpful. Thanks to him for doing such a great job.
This was a fab tour! Not too easy nor was it too strenuous of a track to navigate. Gorgeous views of the Valley and ocean aswell as a historical war bunker when you reach the peak :D Justin was our tour guide and he was brilliant and was a never-ending spout of local information. Thanks for the rad tour mate! Hope you make your way back to NZ one day :P
You not only get the benefit of some exercise but the view at the top is a bonus. Our guide Dave was a lovely young man who kept up an interesting commentary about Diamond Head and Hawaii in general. There were only two of us on the sunrise tour and Dave personalized the tour for us. I'd highly recommend this tour.
The tour was great! I went to Hawaii solo and couldn't be happier to go on hiking with a mixed group of people. Justin our tour guide was very informative and took care of all us well. The view up in the crater was amazing and the hike itself was easy given the trail has railings you can grab on.
Phenomenal Adventure! We are senior citizens and were a little concerned about the physical aspect of this hike, but we needn't have worried. Not that it doesn't give you a workout--but a fun one. The tour included a Professional guide, Use of backpack, Personalized I Climbed Diamond Head certificate with a photo of the crater suitable for framing, Entrance fee, Local taxes, Hotel pickup and drop off. We were picked up exactly where they told us to be and right on time. Our professional tour guide was so knowledgeable, sweet, patient, and helpful. I wish I could remember her name, but I do remember that she knew so much about all the plant life along our hike to the top of Diamond Head. All of our tour group that day were senior citizens, and she was very patient and understanding. We took breaks whenever needed, water was supplied as well as walking sticks to help on the uneven trails. I will warn folks that there are quite a lot of stairs to climb at one point in the hike. I think there were at least 50 or so steps to the stairs. Some folks might find that a little difficult--as I did, but I made it to the top. The tour does take longer than 2.5 hours, so plan a little extra time. We left the hotel at 9:30, and did not get back until about 1:30. I highly recommend this tour. We had a blast!
Our tour guy David was very knowledgeable. It was a challenge, but so worth it, a must do.
Great hike! There was no use of the backpack or walking stick like the description said (which was fine) and our group was actually 23 people instead of 14. But we really enjoyed it and our guide David was awesome. Super informative and fun!
Great tour. Our guide, David, was very knowledgable, answered all of our questions, and was fun. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone.
