Here is a selection of the most recent reviews of the Valley of the Rainbows Oahu Small Group Adventure submitted by actual travelers. Read what travelers liked, what they loved, and what they thought could be improved.
Our guide Greg, was a bit late picking us up, but as we drove through Wakiki and Oahu he talked about the history and various other interesting tid bits. The hike is not really a hike it is more like a walk through some of the Harold Lyon arboretum. If you like plants and flowers, you will lean a great deal from this tour and it's not too hard of a tour. The day we went, it was sunny and beautiful so we did not see any rainbows. Also, it says the guide provides rain gear, but they do not anymore. After the arboretum, he drove us to a view point on top of Mt. Tanatulus, which allows you to see all the way from Diamond Head to Pearl Harbor. It is a pretty spectacular view.Reviewed by: Nicola A, USA, July 2012
Hiking thru a rain forest only about 20 minutes from Waikiki. Beautiful flowers, birds, trees and awesome views. Our guide, Stan, was wonderful, providing lots of information on the flora and fauna and living on Oahu. Would repeat this tour again without hesitation and recommend it to all.Reviewed by: Linda Z, USA, June 2011
Great landscapes and wonderful vegetation, but... no rainbows! Of course you need rain for that, and I catched a sunny day; but it was worth, because I got to see plants such as cocoa and coffee and pineapple that I had never seen, not to speak about the awesome flowers like the legendary ohia lehua or the stunning bat-flower. Many mosquitos, so use much insect repellant!Reviewed by: Mariangela M, August 2012
Wasn't impressed with the garden hike nor the tour guide...Reviewed by: Brian B, October 2012
The park is free entry. You basically pay for the drive and the tour guide only. The rainforest is actually just a park. You won't go to the valley but only looking at it from afar. The hiking is just a walk in the park.Reviewed by: Carol H, July 2012
