Start your day with pickup from your Waikiki hotel at either 8am or 2pm (depending on the tour departure option you select). Please note that any guests not staying at a hotel in Waikiki will need to arrive at the Ala Moana Hotel for their pickup.

Follow along with your trip’s guide and nature expert as you journey on 2-mile hike for about 2 hours into the lush-green forest along the trail. The hike proceeds at a moderate pace and sometimes features wet and slippery terrain due to the frequent moisture in the area.

Soon you’ll arrive at the towering Manoa Falls, a waterfall with a vertical drop of around 150 feet (45m). This beautiful waterfall has earned plenty of camera time from tourists and Hollywood alike, thanks to its role as a filming location for Steven Spielberg’s 1997 movie, The Lost World.
After getting a few good photos of this amazing natural sight, proceed back to your transport for the ride back to Waikiki for a drop-off at your hotel.

We were on the island for 8 days everyday was beautiful but the day we went hiking the island showed us a different form of beauty. It rained, in the rain forest...we had mud everywhere but the photos were gorgeous! The guide gave a tips, about how to safely hike. Very good source of information, from trees, and plants I would have walked by to movie settings that look familiar but not exactly the same. I am really glad they had a hose at the base to wash the mud off before jumping back in the van.

Picking this tour was definitely the correct decision. A beautiful hike with incredible foliage on the way to Oahu’s largest waterfall. Our guide Brie, and trainee Eric were great. In fact Brie was probably one of the best tour guides we have ever had, and we have had many. Her knowledge of the foliage and history of Oahu was amazing, and appreciated, but just as important was her enthusiasm, and humor, for her job and to make sure all of her “guests” were more than 100% satisfied. Brie and Eric make a great team, and Eric could not have a better mentor in his training.

We were in Waikiki on a family vacation. Each time we go to Hawaii, we schedule tours and other fun activities to do. This time we wanted to do the hike up to see the waterfall. Tour company and guides were very professional. Wear bug repellent! Enjoyed the hike and would recommend to families and couples.

The tour was both informative and beautiful. I was able to take awesome photos with my phone! Watch out for steam on the lens. It is a rainforest after all. I also liked how there were frequent stops on the hike up for information. This allowed the group to keep together and give everyone a chance for a breather.

This easy and interesting hike in the jungle was a wonderful outing. Steve, our guide, was very knowledgeable about nature and the sights of Honolulu. He was more than willing to share what he knows with enthusiasm and confidence.
The falls at the end of the hike were well worth seeing at the end of the climb. Be sure to take in this Hawaiian experience.

A serene and quiet view into a world far removed from our everyday hustle. A great guide, knew most all of the flora and fauna that we saw, even on a first name basis with several. Filming location of Jurassic Park movies pointed out and a brief look back in time to the Paleo era. Waterfall was poetic in its drops falling so far downward to the pool. It did rain slightly but it is after all a rain forest, it added to the trip. Excellent hike, wear good boots.
