Great tour! I went to the Crouching Lion hike and it was a truly memorable experience. My guide Schuyler is well experienced, knowledgeable and very fun to hang out with. Definitely the best tour choice in Hawaii. Mahalo!

This tour was the highlight of our time on Oahu, thanks to our tour guide Sky. After a week of tour bus tours in which every stop dropped off in a gift shop, it was an awesome experience to do something different and really be able to take in the beauty of the island. Sky was extremely knowledgeable about the island and was educating us on the various plants and wildlife we were seeing on our route. He also made sure to point out the best picture spots for us. I would highly recommend this tour and we will definitely book them for a different route whenever we come back.

Definitely book for a hiking adventure you will never forget! So glad I found this private tour! Cant wait to come back!
Luca is the best hiking guide we could have ever expected! He is professional and knowledgeable about all the hikes on Oahu and is an avid adventurer himself. Luca took us on one of the most beautiful hikes we have ever been on. It was breathtaking! He made sure everyone was happy, safe, and having a blast. We even wanted to jump into the ocean off a cliff and he found a beach to make it happen. Bucket list! 1000% book this private tour for an amazing hike and an adventurous day. You will see Hawaii for all of its true beauty!

We wanted a hiking day that wasn’t “touristy” and Luca planned the perfect hiking adventure with us! We did 2 beautiful hikes, one along a mountain to a ridge, and one along a creek through jungle terrain. We passed only a handful of other hikers, which was exactly what we’d hoped for. With 3 days in Oahu and 7 in Maui, our day hiking with Luca was one of our favorite days of the entire trip! We could have never found those trails on our own, and the typical hikes with guides take you to the “Disney land” hikes (as I call them) with heavy tourist traffic.

It was out first time in Hawaii and I wanted to experience more than just the beach. Luca was wonderful! He planned a great hike that had the perfect amount of difficulty and adventure. He was friendly, knowledgeable and patient. He even got my teenage boys to talk! It was an amazing experience and would definitely book with him again the next time we visit.

Five of five. Attentive and knowledgeable. Epic hike/climb. Option for easy or challenging hikes. Ridge hike is not for someone with fear of heights. Loved it!

Luca was amazing! He tailored the hikes to our ability and based on what we wanted to see. The hike to the top of Crouching Lion peak was the most memorable part of our Hawaii trip. Highly recommended guide and trip!!!

Went on the Ka'au Crater Hike with Luca! Had a great view, it was so much fun. Luca is also a very chill, funny and relaxed person. Which makes it even more fun and easier to do the hike.

We had the best time! Our guide, Luca, took us to the Crouching lion summit, stunning view and beautiful hiking road. Then we hike to this gorgeous waterfall inside the jungle.
It was the most fun activity we had in Hawaii, Luca took care of everything! Even carried water for us.
This hiking is highly recommend for people who want to know more about the island

Luca is a great guide and very personable. We chatted the whole hike and he took me to two beautiful waterfalls. The hike was more of an adventure than I thought and I loved it! Definitely would recommend and would absolutely book again

Unforgettable experience! I could not recommend booking a hiking tour with Luca any more. Before taking you hiking on one or more of Oahu’s beautiful trails, Luca will check in with you to make sure your hiking experience is 100% customized for what you are looking for. Luca arrived to pick me up early, provided snacks, water, and even a towel because I forgot to bring mine. For adventuring in Oahu, book with Luca!

Luca provided us with a hike that was tailor made for our skill levels and physical abilities. Through a series of give and take texts, we were able to hone in on the perfect hiking experience. It was a really enjoyable morning. Luca is very personable and was fun hiking and chatting with. The hike he selected was exactly what we wanted and it was the highlight of our Hawaiian vacation. I would highly recommend Luca and Adventure Guides Hawaii.

We scheduled a hike with Luca even though he did not have a ton of reviews because I wanted to do a hike with my wife and two teenage kids and him being a local guy who was willing to craft our hike to our interests was very appealing. Plus, him being a young guy and my kids being teenagers I hoped they would be more attuned to him. I was not disappointed. My daughter wanted to do a ridge hike and he brought us to an amazing spot in Kaneohe where we went straight up the side of a mountain to have the most amazing views. He looked out for the 50+ something parents as well as the teens. He has water for all and moved at a steady pace. Afterwards my son wanted to do a waterfall hike so he brought us to a great little short hike near a golf course that was a hidden gem. Luca is a young guy trying to give his customers a great experience of the places he calls home. He will pick you up in his beat up Toyota and offer you fruit and ham and cheese sandwiches he made himself that morning. You will get a genuine Hawaiian experience from a local boy. I HIGHLY recommend. Mahalo Luca!

Best personalized hike on Honolulu
This was my first trip to Honolulu and I kept hearing about how great the hiking is. Since I was traveling by myself and did not have a car, I knew I needed a guided hike. Luca’s guide was perfect, we first did Diamond Head, just because it is such a tourist attraction, but then he asked if what other kind of hike I would like to do and I said I was happy with anything as long as I wasn’t in downtown HNL :). We went to the other side of the island and went through a canopy filled forest which had a great hike and beautiful views. I knew this was a place that only locals went to, and I appreciated this. The hike was great, I could not have asked for a better guide and views. If/when I ever return, I will be signing up for another hike with Luca!

It was so cool and I appreciated it so much Luca! Highly recommend hun and his nice energy he brings!

Luca was very professional and entertaining! He loves the adrenaline! and he is very knowledgeable about all activities on Oahu and gave me a lot of good tips. He chose exactly the right hike for me. The view was amazing and I always felt safe. He even gave me a memory card for my camera because I left it at the hotel. I would definitely book the tour again and can only recommend it to everyone to do it!

Awesome Hiking Tour!
I am not even sure where to start. Our hike was everything we hoped for and more! Our guide Luca was so very friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. He allowed us to choose our own adventure. We simply told him what we wanted to experience and he just knew the perfect hike for us! We let him know that we are amateur hikers and he made sure our hike wasn't too "gnarly" but wasn't too easy either. We completed it feeling super accomplished! He was also so very helpful along the way whenever we needed assistance. He never made us feel rushed and was always more than willing to take breaks. He also took many amazing photos for us in which he emailed to me the next day. He brought us bug spray and snacks so we didn't have to worry about needing anything at all! We did forget one of our personal belongings in his vehicle and he made sure to drop it back off to us! The sweetest part was that he picked up a cupcake because he knew we were visiting for my young daughter's birthday :) Amazing experience. Would recommend Luca to anyone!

Amazing Ridge Hike
Luca was easygoing, professional, honest and knowledgeable. We communicated what we were looking for and he found us the perfect hike! We have been to Oahu many times before but this is definitely one of the most unique experiences. Would definitely use AGH again when we visit next time!
Rene Sara W, Feb 2022
This was the highlight of our trip to Hawaii. Luca was the best hiking guide you can find. We told him what we were looking for and he found us the perfect ridge hike. He was easy to work with and kept in touch with us with everything we needed to know. I can’t wait to come back and take another hike with him

Best Experience in Oahu
Hands down the best experience I had during my stay on Oahu. I booked a hiking tour with my sister and dad and they took us on this hike along the coast with so many cool secret spots like a lava tube we could walk through. They were knowledgable about Hawaiian history and super funny! Also we didn't come across anyone else on the entire hike (besides a few local fisherman)! At the end of the hike was the most beautiful cliff jumping spot, and again no one else there!! After that we got some really delicious local food and called it a day. Truly felt like I was a local and would do it again in a heart beat, thank you guys so much!!!
