My wife's hobby is gardening and this tour took us through an arboretum. Daymar was our guide and he was very knowledgable and made the afternoon very enjoyable.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and personal. It was raining, but that meant we got to see some rainbows! They provided ponchos and umbrellas so nothing of mine got wet, and I could still take some amazing pictures. Would recommend to everyone!!

Our guide Greg, was a bit late picking us up, but as we drove through Wakiki and Oahu he talked about the history and various other interesting tid bits. The hike is not really a hike it is more like a walk through some of the Harold Lyon arboretum. If you like plants and flowers, you will lean a great deal from this tour and it's not too hard of a tour. The day we went, it was sunny and beautiful so we did not see any rainbows. Also, it says the guide provides rain gear, but they do not anymore. After the arboretum, he drove us to a view point on top of Mt. Tanatulus, which allows you to see all the way from Diamond Head to Pearl Harbor. It is a pretty spectacular view.

Hiking thru a rain forest only about 20 minutes from Waikiki. Beautiful flowers, birds, trees and awesome views. Our guide, Stan, was wonderful, providing lots of information on the flora and fauna and living on Oahu. Would repeat this tour again without hesitation and recommend it to all.

If you are really into plants, or just want to take a hike in the mountains among beautiful scenery, do this one. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and made this adventure absolutely wonderful.

If you love learning about the flora and fauna of Hawaii, this is the tour for you. The microclimes of Hawaii are amazing, and this was an excellent example of that. Our guide was a wealth of knowledge and made the day go by so quickly. The hike was very easy, but still one should wear shoes on the walk as recommended.

Great landscapes and wonderful vegetation, but... no rainbows! Of course you need rain for that, and I catched a sunny day; but it was worth, because I got to see plants such as cocoa and coffee and pineapple that I had never seen, not to speak about the awesome flowers like the legendary ohia lehua or the stunning bat-flower. Many mosquitos, so use much insect repellant!

This was an interesting tour as our guide was very knowledgeable about the plantlife of Hawaii, and the sights are amazing, particularly from the viewing point on the return journey - we saw right across Honolulu to Diamond Head. The only disappointment was that this is billed incorrectly on Viator and there are no waterfalls on the tour it is a tour of botanical gardens in a rainforest called the Valley of the Rainbows due to the frequency of rainbows occurring there. We still thoroughly enjoyed it though!

It was beautuful to see such an abundance of tree and plant life. But be sure to wear misqito spry as they will hunt you down .

Really nice hike...minus the killer mosquitos. If you have insane, severe allergic reactions to mosquito bites, please avoid this tour at all costs.

The park is free entry. You basically pay for the drive and the tour guide only. The rainforest is actually just a park. You won't go to the valley but only looking at it from afar. The hiking is just a walk in the park.
