Bike part is not bad, but be fit for the hike.
Steve_A
, Jul 2022
Bikes were ready and sized for each guest prior to us getting there, which was nice. Our tour leader, Kelly, was highly knowledgeable on all the sites we saw. Bikes were easy to ride and shift. The ride up to the Diamond Head park wasn't too bad - a few areas require some leg day work. The hike part was stunning. Keeping the park limited may help keep so many people up at the same time. I won't lie, this takes some effort to get up there, so you really do need to be in some decent shape to make this part of the trip, but boy is it worth it. Spectacular views from the top you will not see anywhere else on the island. Great history of this gem. Highly recommend.

Had a great experience with my husband. We were very inexperienced bike riders but our tour guide Kelly was patient, informative, and friendly. My husband is not a fish eater and Kelly made some calls and found a place that sold hamburgers on the way back. I would definitely recommend this tour!

I loved our bike trip up to Diamond Head. It was a great way to experience more places. Kelly our guide was the best! He had so much interesting information about the islands, the history, and other various topics. It doesn't appear to be advertised but Kelly took lots of photos of us and then made a little montage that he sent us a couple of days later! It was awesome. Kelly made us feel safe biking around. The taco lunch was also very delicious. I would highly recommend this tour.

Kelly (our guide) was great! He was informative about Hawaii, kept us safe on the roads and made sure we had fun. The bike ride gave us many beautiful views of Honolulu and the hike to the top of Diamond Head was awesome! And lunch at the end was delicious! This is definitely worth doing!

I leave tomorrow and I would say out of all the tours this has been my favorite so far! I loved riding through the different neighborhoods and parks before arriving to diamond head. If you are planning head of time it wouldn’t hurt to work on your cardio but don’t let that scare you off. 🙂This tour is 100000% worth it!! The tour is challenging in a good way. There are very few spots where you have to peddle on an incline.our tour Guide Kelly made sure the whole group was good the entire time. You not only get to see an amazing view at the top but you work up an appetite for some yummy food. We got lucky and had the fish tacos! Finally, Kelly got some amazing pictures. Mahalo!

My 14 year old son went with Grandfather and aunt's boyfriend this is from his perspective. He loved feeding the chickens and the hike but the view made it worth it. He also loved riding his bike down a mountain. As his mom he has not stopped talking about it!

Great mix of biking, hiking, and walking with restroom and lunch breaks. Breath-taking views of the Honolulu skyline and crater/valley from atop Diamond Head. Appreciated having someone to capture the moments for us on camera. The tacos and spicy fries were delicious! Thanks and looking forward to recommending this tour to our friends :)

Unwelcoming…it got political.
Joe_D
, Nov 2021
Ok, so this is a lot to unpack… Great communication! Prior to the tour, they reached out to me because of a schedule conflict, and they were able to provide lots of options to resolve the matter, and we were able to reschedule very easily. The tour by itself was great. It highlighted some really interesting historical locations and unique geological features of the Waikiki-Diamond Head area. Our guide took lots of pictures for everyone and was able to answer most all of my questions. At the end of the trip, we got a video of the trip highlights, and lunch provided was delicious. Now, as for the reason I deducted three stars from what otherwise would have been a stellar review… Let me begin by saying that I personally have no political affiliation with any party, and I consider myself to be very fortunate to have friends who are on both sides of the political fence, able to discuss their ideas with me in a respectful manner. Generally speaking, (and no matter what side of the political fence you’re on) tour guides should NEVER talk about their personal political opinions on a tour… it’s bad practice to do so. If the tour guides I had in Washington D.C. (where political opinions would be JUST LOOSELY relevant to the tour) can avoid giving me their personal political opinions, then I certainly would expect a tour guide to Diamond Head (where political opinions are COMPLETELY IRRELEVANT to the subject of the tour) to be able to do the same. Furthermore, and still generally speaking, tour guides should ABSOLUTELY NEVER use terms like “Republitards” or “Commiecrats” or any other inappropriate name for whatever group of people they disagree with… It’s divisive, it can potentially alienate members of your tour, and such name-calling from any tour guide, even general name-calling of a political party (no matter which) is flat-out unacceptable. Fortunately I was traveling alone…I would have been terribly embarrassed had I been with any of my friends who happen to sit on the side of the political fence that our guide was referring to… For me, as someone who has no party affiliation, it was uncomfortable enough. Tours like this should be inclusive for everyone to be able to come together and learn about Diamond Head and O’ahu. Everyone, regardless of political opinions, should be able to participate without being uncomfortable. Fun and learning should be for everyone, but the vibe was very uncomfortable and unwelcoming. Two stars. I feel that’s generous.

We are sorry you misinterpreted a brief discussion with the other guests. FYI, You know these are your words, Not our guides. These inebriated, defamatory statements do not belong on this platform. We wake up every day doing our best to serve our guests. Here in Hawaii, we live with Aloha in our hearts. That's all we can do.
