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.
We enjoyed the small group experience. Our guide was so knowledgeable and friendly! The views from the top of the crater were well worth the steep hike up. We would definitely recommend this tour.
Great trip, beautiful views and good walk up the crater. Highly recommended
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.
Brilliant - really knowledgable guide - terrific fun - and an amazing view at Sunrise
FANTASTIC! I would definitely bring my family with me next time for this tour. I was traveling alone aside from the tour's small group and our tour guide Tony was awesome. He was very informative, entertaining, and made sure everyone was safe and comfortable,and he was very helpful with taking my pictures for me. The hike up to the peak was just perfect, definitely exciting and not too exhausting and the scenic view from the trail was amazing. And best of all, the feeling is indescribable once you see the vastness of Oahu, the ocean, the city and the mountains in one full view.
JR was our tour guide. He was awesome. JR was friendly and very informative. Views were great. We would highy reccomend this hike.
We loved this hike! Our guide was friendly and informative. The views were amazing. Do not miss this!
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.
pickup was prompt at designated hotel, guide Rama was very knowledgeable, interacted with all the tour members and was very helpful during the hike. great views from the top of Diamondhead!!! Very satisfied with tour!!!
This tour was fantastic! Our guide was so informative, going above and beyond answering all my questions about Hawaii history. The climb was lots of fun, and beautiful!
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.
Excellent tour, fantastic guide with great knowledge! Perfect experience!!!!!
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.
hardest thing I have ever done - hot but well worth the climb - make sure you take a bottle of water on the hike
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 :-)
A really really good trip, guide was lovely very informative. Steps at the end of walk to top hard but worth the amazing views
My husband and I did the hike with only minor aches and pains the next day! I do recommend wearing tennis/hiking shoes because of the uneven terrain. I was glad that we had a guide to tell us about the area and to explain the military history.
