A Hike through the Rain Forest to One of O'ahu's Best Waterfalls and More


The Manoa Falls Trail offers a moderate, approximately 60-minute round trip, hike through a spectacular rain forest to one of the island of O'ahu's best waterfalls. During the hike, your local guide, Kirk, will "talk story" with you about Hawaiian history, culture, and his own experience living in the Aloha State for over a decade. After the hike, Kirk will take you to one of his favorite local spots for lunch. After lunch, the tour will continue with a little bit of sightseeing. First, an excursion up Round Top Drive to the Puu Ualakaa State Park which offers a panoramic view overlooking the Diamond Head State Monument, Waikiki, and downtown Honolulu. Next, a stop at the Nu'uanu Pali Lookout which offers an impressive view of the windward side of O'ahu. Then off to the Ka Iwa State Scenic Shoreline. Please note that there are more challenging hikes on O'ahu. If you are interested in a more challenging hike, please send a message to Kirk BEFORE booking this tour, and he will respond with alternatives.

A Recent Review of this tour

This tour was absolutely wonderful! Kirk picked us up at our hotel, and had space for all of our luggage in his very comfortable SUV. He took us to Manoa Falls, giving us really interesting information along the way. He is a wonderful guide. He also took us to a great local lunch spot. And then he drove us to some absolutely gorgeous beaches, and some lookouts with breathtaking views! He dropped us off at the port for our cruise. We highly recommend this tour with Kirk. It was a perfect day!
