Well informed and experienced tour guides. Hiking in the rainforest was an amazing experience; the scenery is lush and spectacular…….. I appreciated the walking stick for support in the terrain. This tour is a must for all visitors to the area. We were taken to the most amazing mountain view of Waikiki where we were provided a delicious sandwich and a drink.
So fun!!

Amazing waterfall; worth the effort. Trail was wet and muddy; maybe challenging for some. Recommend to wear proper shoes. Flip flops not a great idea.

Being able to enjoy the rainforest view with my girlfriend was a blast. Jackson rocked it and was very professional.

We did not get what we booked as the falls were closed, and later found out they had been closed Mon to Thurs since last year, but tickets still being sold for this Hike on these days. Disappointing.

Aloha Lisa, We have been in contact with messenger, and we appreciate you continuing to give us more information about what led to your dissatisfaction with the tour. It's true that the Manoa Falls trail has been open on-and-off since late last year. Because of this, we have included a disclaimer on all of our booking sources and marketing materials (including the Viator product page). However, when we looked at our Viator page, we saw that it was still reading 'rerouted through December', despite the fact that we requested an update to that disclaimer some time ago. I have reached out to Viator again to ask them to push through the update so that it reads 'through mid-2020'. We are doing our best to manage the uncertainties of this trail with the on-again-off-again nature of the state's closures. It can be challenging at times with the multiple sources we have feeding our bookings. We have heard your feedback and will improve our communications going forward. Thank you for your understanding, Nature and You
Great way to spend half a day.

I wouldn't call it a hike more like a nice walk in the jungle with a great guide. Billy our guide was great and very knowledgeable about the history of the region and the vegatation we viewed on our hike to the falls and made our excursion very enjoyable.

Manoa Botanical Gardens & Falls
, Jan. 2020
The Manoa Falls trail was closed. Our tour was to the botanical gardens and a small waterfall. Our guide Yugi made this trip very enjoyable. His knowledge of botany and local history was outstanding. As a dual language speaker he was able to explain perfectly in English and Japanese for all to understand. But his patience and kindness towards one of our participants was the most heartwarming. He assisted her at every step on the hike to and from the falls. It was very difficult due to the heavy rain that was falling. The trail was quite muddy and slip but Yugi ensured that she was able to complete the hike and see the waterfall. Yugi is a superb guide and a wonderful individual. He represents your company in such a favorable way as to encourage additional bookings. He is an asset to your team.

We so appreciate your sharing this thoughtful recap of your tour. We are so happy to hear that Yuji acted with aloha and assisted our guests to get to the waterfall. We absolutely agree that he is an asset and we are very proud to have him on our team! I am wondering, is there anything Yuji and our company could have done better to get a 5-star rating? Please let us know. Mahalo and safe travels!
