Enjoyed the hike and tour of Oahu. I was looking for a tour that included the hike up diamond head. It was early enough in the day that the hike wasn’t to busy. Beautiful scenery, some cool little stops along the way.

We liked it very much. Jonah the guide took the time to give us great tips, recommended places depending on the kind of food we wanted. It was a great way to discover the island. I recommend it

Hike to top of Diamond Head is not difficult, but provides a beautiful view of Honolulu and the crater. The rest of the trip was great too. The North Shore is also very beautiful.

Great tour of the island with many opportunities to try local food and treats. Guide was fantastic.

This is a must do!!!! I’ll be booking again when I return!! ☺️
