Hawaii Forest and Trail – Your Guide to BIG Adventure

HONOLULU HEIGHTS – Wonderful hike up Diamond Head with Peter followed by a great breakfast—there was even a tablecloth to cover the picnic bench!! Very thoughtful guide and had some great stories to tell about the geography , also very informative about the plants at the arboretum along with Hawaii stories and the history of Hawaii.  There were backpacks and rain jackets available along with plenty of food and drink for half a day experience—thoroughly recommend it

BIRDS & WILDLIFE Awesome Company with Amazing Guides. We always experience amazing outings using Hawaii Forest & Trail, and the Oahu Birding Trip was no exception. The company has been guiding on the Big Island for many years, but is fairly new to Oahu. But the standards to which they adhere are second to none. Nathan was an excellent guide, and very patient seeking the Oahu endemics, which we were lucky to get the triple crown of Amakihi, Apapane & Elepaio. With his extensive knowledge of Hawaiian history, the van rides between locations was always informative & educating.

OAHU SUNSET ON THE RIDGE – Living on Oahu most of my life, you’d figure that you’ve seen and done just about everything you could do on one island. Signing up for Hawaii Forest & Trails “Oahu Sunset on the Ridge was an awesome experience for me and my gf. Our guides were very professional knowledgeable about the history of the land and the native fauna. The views of the west side are breathtaking and are only available through HF&T. I highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to gain access to a side of Hawaii few get to see and learn a little history along the way. The food provided was the perfect spread to reenergize our bodies. Thanks again for the great experience Hawaii Forest and Trail!

FARM TO FOREST  – Farm tour was very educational. The private hike gave us the best views of Oahu. Nate was an incredibly knowledgeable guide.

NORTH SHORE WATERFALL ADVENTURE – We absolutely loved this Adventure Nathan was our guide. He has lived in Hawaii his whole life and definitely had so much information to share. His love for the island as well as for the birds and plants became very evident. The Waimea Botanical Gardens and Falls were a wonderful place to visit. Swimming by the falls was such a treat and Nathan made sure we saw amazing beauty in the valley and gardens. The tour included a delicious lunch in the park and fun time shopping on the North Shore. The Island Vintage Coffee Shop is highly recommended!

EXCELLENT DAY – Our Guides name was Brett and he was awesome. He took us to the Water Falls, to a beautiful state park, we went to the Volcano House, and we got to see Sea Turtles. He served us lunch and he was so kind and considerate, the best excursion we took while we were in Hawaii.

ENDANGERED HABITATS – Great day visiting native Hawaiian ecosystems to see endangered and native Hawaiian birds on the Big Island of Hawaii. Great guide who was a very experienced birdwatcher and extremely knowledgeable. Was a really great day.

Our guide, Amanda, was amazing. She was so knowledgable about the places we visited and made the whole day so delightful. She even brought mosquito replant, snacks, water, and was very attentive to our needs.

Gary, our guide, was excellent. He provided a lot of info about the plants and trees and was able to find key birds very quickly. He was very energetic and took great care of the group.

Mike was an excellent guide. He gave very helpful tips throughout the hike. He never made me feel badly or unable to complete the hike, even though I am a very inexperienced hiker. Beautiful waterfalls!!!

Justin made our tour up Mauna Kea the highlight of our vacation on the Big Island. He gave everyone individual attention and didn’t make me listen to Journey. The van was spacious and comfortable. The meal was good and Justin shared knowledge of the mountains and animals along the way. He truly made the tour worth every penny rather than driving ourselves up the mountain. A great telescope too.
