This was a great hike. And Arlene was the best. Highly recommend this hike for a small outdoor adventure. It’s just a couple of hours and the hike was easy. We have been to Oahu several times and never knew of this beautiful place. So glad that we booked this

Only one waterfall but very nice tour
Anita_V, May 2023
Our tour guide was Hema with Karma tours. She called us when she was outside of our hotel so we could meet her at the corner. She was very nice and provided a great tour of a lookout point and Moana falls. Unfortunately there was only one waterfall and long hike to get there but it was really nice. It went by pretty quick and you have to watch where you walk so you can't really enjoy the surroundings but we made several stops for photo ops.
Great tour

Our guide Hema was great!!! She was always helpful to take pictures of her guests along the way. Very informative!
Beautiful Nature in All Its Forms
Sheryl_K, Apr 2023
This was one of my favorite tours. The scenery was beautiful and filled with bird songs. The falls are gorgeous, but you can’t see it splash into the pond for all the people in the way. Our guide went with us and pointed out many trees & flowers. We even saw a mongoose. The only bad thing is the Parks Dept doesn’t enforce their rules to stay far from the fall’s pool. People from all over are often selfish and inconsiderate of others. It was impossible to get a picture without people in the way where they weren’t supposed to be! The hike itself was steep in 3 places and part of the trail had very loose rocks that were slippery, making the downhill more dangerous. All in all I had a great day with another family (I went solo) and our tour guide, Hema. One couple treated me like part of their family. I bought a quart of organic Hawaiian honey and a rooster print, since we’re entertained by a rooster doing a mating dance; the hen walked away.
Great adventure!

Our tour guide was amazing, very positive, and upbeat. Hemmie I recall was her name. She was a great photographer too! A beautiful woman with a wonderful personality. The whole trip was fun. She is a gem.

The hike is not too bad. There are some incline, rocks, mud, and slippery spots. The tropical views are spectacular!

Robert_P, Dec 2022
Excellent guide and excellent experience. However too low value for money: this trip was quite doable by own means.
Wonderful views!
Crystal_C, Dec 2022
Wonderful views! My tour guide was very knowledgeable. If you love hiking this is a must do while vacationing in Hawaii.
Gorgeous waterfall, easy hike
Tabitha_S, Dec 2022
Arleen was the best tour guide! She knew all the great spots to take pictures and was very knowledgeable about the wildlife around us. The hike was great, alittle tricky with the rain, but we just took it easy. The views were gorgeous and the waterfall was beautiful with great photo opportunities!
Get your hiking boots ready!!
Ebony_W, Dec 2022
Robert was great!! He was knowledgeable, patient, and professional. We had a great time!! We learned so much!!
Great hike, good views, nice tour guide.

I like this tour/ hike. I was picked up at my hotel by Sergei (I think thats his name 😆) and he gave us the history of Hawaii and it was very informative, and he is very knowledgeable about the island. He took us to puu ualakaa look out and he got a history lesson there along with some great pictures. Then he took us to to Manoa falls and it was about a 20-minute hike or 30 because we would stop for small talk and history. The hike itself wasn't hard, I wore vans sneakers, and it worked out fine. I do recommend hiking boots though because the trail is rough at times and is slippery. I'LL be back next year.
Be sure you are able to hike up and down rocky trails before reserving.
Penne_S, Oct 2022
Lack of accurate trail description & amenities, 5 walking sticks for 13 people, no shave ice/dole whip stop at the end (truck with substandard shave ice happened to be there).

This is not to be missed. Robert was such an amazing, knowledgeable and friendly guide. Definitely one of the best we have had the pleasure to meet. And the rainforest- stunning!!!!!
Easy hike in a rain forest.
Laura_S, Oct 2022
Seeing the waterfall. Hearing and seeing the sounds of nature. Plenty of info from our guide, he was funny, informative, and entertaining.
Water trickle
Kevin_S, Sept 2022
The hike was beautiful and the guide was knowledgeable and kind. There wasn't much water at the waterfall, but that is mother nature, not the fault of the tour company.
Hiking with nature
kathy_h, Aug 2022
The nature sight on this hike was breath taking. David (hopefully I remembered his name correctly, older nice gentleman) was great in giving us some history allowing us time to take pictures. The incline kick my butt however the reward was worth the trail. Loved it
Not good
harry_g, Aug 2022
No one showed up. Also u don't need a person to guide u on this hike. Pretty simple. It's better to book directly
