Aloha. This was my first hike ever. It was kind of tough, but worth it. Shamus was the guide for me and another lady. I was happy that I wouldn't be doing it alone. Shamus was great, very friendly, personable. He took our pics for us. With me being a first timer, we took our time with plenty of breaks. He was also the perfect gentleman & assisted me down the steps. Lunch was ok. I expected more, like popular, local, Hawaiian food. The beach was absolutely awesome!!! And well worth the hike. Shamus provided beach chairs. It wasn't crowded. The water was beautiful. I would definitely recommend this tour to others. Mahalo.
