If you want to get out of the hurry and rush of the city this is the experience of a life time. I was fortunate to have Dante as my guide. This guy knows his stuff! Luckly our group had only 3 people including the guide but we had the hike of our lives. Dante knew when to slow down, when to stop so that we could catch our breath and kept the information and conversation flowing the whole time. From walking through the bamboo forest, seeing Honolulu / Diamond Head from above and afar to hearing rustling in the brush and wondering if it was a wild pig this is truly an experience for those that are willing to step outside and breath the fresh air.
Hike was awesome. Tour guide Stan was very knowledgeable as he explained about the different plants, trees, and landscapes during the walk. Would recommend this hike to friends and family who will be visiting Oahu.
