Full description

Manoa Falls Hike: 1.6 Miles (1.29 km) Round-Trip hike with an 800-Foot (243 m) elevation increase.

Explore the Manoa Valley Rainforest on a guided nature walk to the stunning Manoa Falls. Take a short trip from Waikiki in an air-conditioned vehicle and enjoy a delicious lunch with a panoramic view atop Tantalus lookout.

Get picked up by your friendly guide in a comfortable vehicle from Waikiki and travel straight to the Manoa Falls trailhead. Follow your guide along the 1.6-mile trail as it winds through tropical rainforest that was used as a backdrop in films like 'Jurassic Park' and the TV show 'Lost.'

Take in the natural beauty of the Hawaiian rainforest and the sounds of native birds. Stroll through a bamboo forest and sit at a natural tree arch throne. Admire the breathtaking and lush scenery of Hawaii, while your guide tells you about local cultural facts and history.

Reach the end of the trail and be amazed by a 150 foot of cascading waterfall. Capture pictures of the tallest waterfall on Oahu, and soak up the atmosphere before heading back along the trail the way you came.

Stop for a healthy power lunch and at Tantalus Lookout. Gaze out at the Diamond Head volcano cone and the Waikiki skyline from this vantage point. After your day of adventure, arrive back in Waikiki at around 1:30 PM.

Our guide Noah took my family and I to Manoa Falls today. He was informative, funny and caring throughout, ensuring our two kids were keeping up and feeling ok. The jungle hike was amazing as was the waterfall itself. Afterwards, we enjoyed lunch at Tantalus Lookout. We highly recommend this tour!

What a great trip! Our guide was just the best - so knowledgeable and answered all our questions. We all had plenty of time for our trek through the rain forest, and I noticed he was careful not to rush anyone who was finding the trek challenging - it was do-able for anyone of average fitness, but utterly was very hot and humid! Then we went to a great picnic spot with panoramic views, for the included sandwich lunch. Worth every penny! and the lovely driver dropped us right back where we needed to be afterwards! A terrific day out!

Beautiful, green and lush! The drive there is short and it gets you away from the heat and the hustle and bustle of the Waikiki Beach area. The hike itself is green and lush! A relatively easy trail, it starts out flat and slowly inclines the closer you get to the falls. Although it can be done with sturdy sandals, I highly recommend something with traction and back (no flip flops) the area is wet and rocky with lose rocks and it can be slippery in parts. There are bathroom facilities and a little shop where you can get a snacks and cold drinks. Highly recommend doing this beautiful trail!
