What You Can Expect
With average year-round temperatures of 80 degrees fahrenheit (26 degrees celcius), refreshing trade winds and two volcanic mountain ranges on this Hawaiian island, Oahu is a hiker's paradise. Given the popularity of hiking, and since most all other hiking companies feature public trails and multiple groups, the secluded personality of the rainforest is often compromised. This exclusive rainforest adventure is more than a hike; it is a journey through the past and present in a remote 75-acres (300,000 square meters) of private Manoa Valley rainforest.
This is a mild to moderate hike over dirt trail. Hiking time is approximately 1.5 hours.
Such a great tour! Our guide, I forgot his name but he had short blonde hair and i think was born in Sweden, was fantastic and kept me motivated during the rains, humidity, mosquitoes, mud sliding and water crossings! Very knowledgable and kudos for all the trail work they do. Best tour I went on!
I am very out of shape so this hike kicked my butt! Great hike but expect to be tired.
Well hosted with a very knowledgeable guide. Great way to get in to the heart of nature on the island. Slow paced with plenty of water stops so that even the slower among the group were able to easily keep up. Good fun!
If you're looking for something to do other than lay on the beaches of Hawaii, this is it! Mattias was a fabulous guide and taught us so much about the rainforest! You will most likely be pretty wet when you're all done, but it is so worth it to get to the waterfall at the end! Beautiful place!
Excellent tour! I would recommend it! The Tour guide was informative and he had everyone walking at a reasonable pace. The scenary is spectacular!
This was a hike on a trail, but not a big one. It is not an easy walk with lots of rocks and jumps and dodging of tree branches. We hiked into a nice waterfall and then back through a bamboo forest. The guide (Cory) was great! He was extremely knowledgeable about the trail, the plants and the environment. We (my wife and I) had the fortune of having a solo tour with Cory and it was great. Bring hiking boots or something other than sandals or use their conveniently supplied rain boots cause you are going to get a little muddy.
Mattao was awesome and really knew what he was talking about. We had a wonderful time and really enjoyed the fresh trails that covered muddy and rocky terrain. It was refreshing and informative. Loved it. Would definitely recommend it to others.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and informative. We will take more tours offered because of his personality and enthusiasm.
