Loved this tour! We had a great guide who kept us informed about all the flora and fauna... plenty of photo and catch your breath stops. Really recommend this tour!

We had a great experience with our tour. Mandy, our guide, was pleasant and very knowledgeable. Just the right amount of science and nature discussion mixed in with the hiking. She accommodated everyone's needs and seemed genuinely interested in providing us with a great experience. Bypassing the parking nightmare was a huge plus. The only downside and not enough to drop it to 4 star was the amount of time we had to wait for some of the people to arrive at the pick up location, but this was clearly not the fault of Mandy or the company, it was the people on the tour. Great way to experience Diamond Head. Ask for Mandy!

Fantastic view from the top. Well worth the walk. A lot of stairs so don't do it unless you are reasonably fit. We did it easy but a few people in our group struggled. Our guide was fantastic,

The view from the top is worth the climb! For war buffs or those who are not claustrophobic, take the 99 stairs up and go through the bunker. Its cramped and a tight squeeze at times, but it provides an interesting point of view at the top. Be sure to get a good photo op by standing in front of the brown sign on the railing at the top facing Waikiki Beach. Our tour guide recommended it and she was right - pics turned out great! There are multiple look out points with places to sit along the way for photo ops and a little break before continuing. Would recommend for those who enjoy a bit of a work out and being rewarded with a fantastic view of Waikiki Beach and the beautiful ocean.

This was a very enjoyable--exhausting and strenuous--but worthwhile tour! Paul was quite engaging, knowledgable, and motivating as our guide. Lots of history and beautiful scenery.

Excellent tour and exactly as advertised. We really enjoyed our hike up Diamond Head, and received valuable knowledge and information along the way! Highly recommend but note that you should do this early in the day it gets hot!, and the hike is a bit more strenuous then moderate.

We LOVED our tour up to Diamond Head. Justin was amazing with so much local knowledge and a real enthusiastic personality. I think it's well worth going with a guide so you can learn more about it and Justin was happy to answer local questions as well. Amazing views from the top!
