Full description
Get picked up by your guide in an air-conditioned luxury vehicle in Waikiki and travel straight to the Manoa Falls trailhead. Follow the 1.5-mile trail as it winds through a tropical rainforest used in many blockbuster films and TV shows, including Jurassic Park and Lost. As you explore the trail, take in the natural beauty of the Hawaiian rainforest and the sounds of native birds found nowhere else in the world. Discover many hidden secrets and treasures to behold along the way, including a bamboo forest and natural tree arch. Enjoy the breathtaking and lush scenery of Hawaii while your guide shares interesting Hawaiian cultural facts and history. At the end of this 45-minute walk, the trees clear to display your reward: 150 feet of cascading fresh water. Manoa Falls is the tallest accessible waterfall in Oahu, and it is a wonder to behold. It’s all downhill from there, as you head back along the trail the way you came. After the hike, enjoy a healthy power lunch at the local favorite Kaimana Farm Cafe. After your day of adventure, arrive back in Waikiki at around 1:30 PM.

I was sorry that I couldn't go to Manoa Falls that day, but instead I was taken to another place. The tour guide in charge was fluent in Japanese and enjoyed the tour with jokes. Another guide was a fun person and taught me various things. In addition, I had you send photos taken by professionals who can not usually get on iphone.

Billy was fun and knowledgeable. Beautiful scenery and the vegetarian lunch, which we ate at a very peaceful park, was delicious.
