Apparently the day we were supposed to do our Manoa Falls hike, the trail was closed for cleanup and improvement for safer future hikes. So our tour guide, Kawika Carlson, contacted us the day before our scheduled time to suggest a Makiki Valley rainforest tour instead. We wanted an adventure in a natural environment so we agreed regardless, and we were not disappointed! The trail was 2.5 miles with elevation, approximately 1.5 hours. Kawika brought water and snacks for us and even picked up/dropped off at our hotel as there was only our 3 person group on the tour. It was super convenient as we might not have found the new location very easily on our own. Kawika was very knowledgeable about the trail itself and the surrounding ecosystem. He even informed us of all the professional races that took place there. We went at a relatively brisk pace but it was the perfect start to our physical day. Definitely suggest this tour!

We absolutely loved the Manoa Waterfalls hike with City Running Tours Honolulu! Yovo and yahnny were wonderful and accommodating of all hikers. They showed us the wonders of the Manoa Falls area with Aloha spirit! We were picked up at our Waikiki beach hotel and they kindly provided refreshments. Great pictures and memories! We would definitely go for hiking experience with them.

We have used this group before and really enjoyed both experiences. Our guide Carly was friendly, personable and made the experience enjoyable by providing details about the location, snacks, opportunities to take photos and her of us. We were lucky to catch a lift home with Carly which saved another Uber fare. Many thanks!

We absolutely loved the Manoa Waterfalls hike with City Running Tours Honolulu! Yahnny was an outstanding guide. She was very patient and kind throughout the hike. She has a certain peace about her and was wonderful in accommodating the different level of hikers in our group. They showed us the wonders of the Manoa Falls area with Aloha spirit! We were picked up at the Waikiki Beach Marriott Resort and Spa hotel and they kindly provided refreshments, great pictures and memories to last a lifetime! We would definitely go on another hiking experience with them.

Peng was our guide for the hike & he was so helpful, patient, and had the best energy/spirit for an 8am hike. My friends and I really enjoyed our experience & I would highly recommend him and the hike to everyone.

The hike was a wonderful getaway from the busy waikiki environment. While the hike was at an incline all the way through on rocks and mud and wet terrain, the hike was at a comfortable pace and was never rushed and catered to the ability of the group and the group was very adaptable. The waterfall and the lush surrounding were a sight to see at the end of the hike up.
Our tour guide David/Kavika (or is it Kawika, sorry) was very knowledgeable about the area and its history. He prepared us on our hike by recommending and sharing a bug spray which definitely was a must and greatly appreciated. At the end of the tour he provided us with really sweet pineapple slices and water/gatorade to wind down. He even dropped me off at my next planned attraction, a true hawaiian hospitality.

We did this hike with 3 adults (one 67 yrs old) and two kids (13 & 9). Our guide was fun and knowledgeable she took plenty of time to answer questions and never rushed us along. The hike through the rain forest was beautiful and the falls we awesome. I am so happy we booked this tour it was well worth it. I would recommend it to everyone.
There are some slippery sections of the trail so good shoes are a must to be safe but other than that it was a nice enjoyable hike.

The Monoa tour was great, it blows the mind that a lush green jungle like environment exits just 20 minutes from the hectic commercial center that is Waikiki. Dianne was our tour guide, she lead us up to the waterfall and told us fun facts as we went up the mountain. Wife and I had casual hiking boots, kids had sneakers. We saw people going up with flip flops, I would not recommend trying the trail with flip flops. It rained the night before, parts of the trail was muddy and some rocks were a little slippery...with our shoes it was fun and easily navigable. Rocks, greenery, water...for an urban boy like me it was incredible, I can't find words to do it justice. Its got to be the best bang for the buck in terms of ROI..hike a little...see a LOT. With a little common sense (i.e. don't wear flip flops and don't try bringing grandma/grandpa if they are frail.), this is a great tour. December is the off season and the trail was somewhat busy...I'd imagine during the high season its like Disneyland. Almost everyone we saw on the trail were smiling and in awe...tourist types like us. Then there were the super-serious, hike as fast as you can types on the trail...apparently they were training for a competition that involves this mountain...just let them pass and get back to enjoying the scenery. Be sure to bring water and spray down with insect repellent. Although I didn't see any bugs, the Mrs got bitten several times..much more than the one/two I got. Great tour and kudos to Dianne.
