Awesome hike and work out! The guide was great, nice, and very knowledgeable.
We enjoyed our tour very much. The guide was very nice and informative. Glad we took the tour!
The tour was great We had Dave. He was very knowledgable and friendly and well deserving of a tip at the end. We learnt alot of facts and information. Such wonderful views also. The only thing I was disappointed with was that we didn't get to see the sunrise as it was coming up (could be the time of year perhaps?) but it was a great tour all the same. Will definitely recommend to others.
One of the best things I've done on my trip. There were only 4 people in my tour group and the guide was very knowledgeable and adapted to the pace of our group. He told us a lot of interesting things about the plant and animal life as well as some history (there's a look-out point he took us down where they probably saw the planes attack Pearl Harbor). Everything was very prompt. He offered us water and backpacks to use if we wanted and we all got certificates at the end!
I was traveling alone so I didn't want to go off and do a hike on my own when it would be safer to do it with a group. For me it was money well spent. I think it's also good if you're interested in the crater itself and not just the hike up...although you get both on this tour! A great way to spend the morning!
Oh...forgot to mention. Their morning time is perfectly scheduled so that you miss the sunrise rush, but still get to hike up while it's cool. Perfect timing. They really know what they're doing.
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.
WE woke up early and boarded our small bus for our adventure up Diamond head. Our guide was so knowledgeable. he really was very clear and well spoken and the group of 5 of us learned a lot. The hike was amazing and the views were spectacular. he stopped a bunch of times giving everyone time to catch up and take in the views.
Excellent tour. Guide was excellent Unfortunately, he is leaving to go to Dental School. Easy walk. No hiking shoes needed. Sneakers are fine since a good portion is paved. If you can walk any distance uphill there are no problems with walk. Guide stopped a few times at lookouts to allow others to catch up , take pictures, and impart his knowledge. Worth the tour.
I never thought I would get so close to an active volcano. A very awe-inspiring experience. The tour conductor went out of his way to ensure we obtained the very best views and experiences. After the volcano, the lava tunnel was awesome !! All tourists should do this fabulous activity
This was a great hike. My husband did it last year and came back saying it was good hike. But he did not think I could do it. Later he said he wished I could do the hike to Diamond Head he thought I would like it We did a lot of walking and stairs, as he had told me about the stairs in prepration. I was able to do the hika and enjoyed it very much.
