The trail was so beautiful and the views spectacular. Great hike! It was better than I expected and much appreciated with our guide Ismael. I would recommend this hike to anyone who wants to explore and enjoy the beauty of nature. It was totally worth it!

Teri’i, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and generous with his time. From the moment he picked us up from our hotel to the time he dropped us off, he shared his passion for Hawaiian nature and history in an informative and engaging way. One of the highlights of our trip - we thoroughly recommend him and this excursion!
Daniel you the best

Wonderful experience and I’m glad to be part of a group of other sweet people. The waterfall and locations were quite exquisite!!!

Waterfall was less than expected

Noa the guide was great. Provided a lot of great historical information and was very respectful. Waterfall was not a waterfall. Misleading
Response from Host, Aug 2021
Mahalo for joining us. We're confused why you feel mislead. It is a double-tiered waterfall highly sought after for its natural beauty and consistent flow of water. The pictures of these falls are accurate and many images were taken by guests themselves.
Great hike

We had so much fun during the whole hike. The sceneries are so refreshing and the air is super fresh and clean. Our tour guide, Ismael, was so helpful and knowledgeable. Definitely a must try.
Nice hike- more than moderate

Terii gave a great tour of Honolulu on the way to the waterfall and on the way back. The terrain was very wet and muddy which was slippery and there were lots of rocks and tree roots. The description of the hike was moderate, but I felt it was more than moderate. There should be more details in the description. That being said, Terii was very helpful guiding me down the trail on the way out to make sure I didn’t slip and fall.
Informed tour

Informative tour guide! He pointed out plants and trees along the way that helped us get a better idea of the history of the island.
Definitely recommend!

This hike was awesome! First, I have to say I was a little hesitant because there weren’t many reviews, but it was well worth it. Our guide was amazing! My friend and I accidentally got on a bus with the wrong tour (miscommunication with the guide with that company) but our guide (I forgot his name) was amazing. He worked with us and was able to come back so we did not miss the hike. The hike was beautiful! The guide was able to give us lots of information about the island, hike, animals, etc. It was a fairly small group, about 8, which was nice. The waterfall it self was really pretty and not nearly as busy as many of the hikes close to Honolulu. Definitely recommend.
Great experience

Great times with a group of fun people and a cool tour guide. Terrii provided great information about Hawaii.
The whole Hike was amazing not just the waterfall!
Tyler_R, June 2021
Terii I think that is how you spell his name was amazing! Super informative and pointed out things along the trail and was super helpful through the posts that needed a little extra help! I would love to go more tours with him he was great!

Guide Terii was funny and kept us engaged and it was fairly easy. There were people playing music and fire dancing kinda took away from the nature part of it
Response from Host, June 2021
Mahalo for your review. Our staff works hard to make your time with us well spent. I did hear about the other group being loud. Please come again and try another tour.. we have some great properties we work with,
