The Basics

The 1.5-mile (2.4-kilometer) round-trip Manoa Falls trail is well marked, and while visitors some go at it alone, a number of tour operators offer guided hikes. Parts of the path are paved or lined with gravel, but because of the heavy foot traffic and rainy weather, the trail can be very wet and muddy. As a result the relatively easy hike can be slippery; the last few minutes before the falls are the most challenging. The pool at the bottom of the falls is no longer open for swimming due to falling rocks.

Best excursion ever!!

Private Half-day Manoa Falls Hike and eBike Ride
Great communication leading up to the excursion. You will never meet a nicer person, whose first concern is your safety and enjoyment. Bikes were great (I want one!) and the hike while challenging because I am out of shape, was manageable. Pictures along the way by the guide were an added bonus I didn’t expect. Don’t hesitate! Book now! You won’t be sorry!!!

Owner/tour guide Ryan did a great job with us! Very knowledgeable about the island and tour destinations. On the way back to his business, we stopped at a GREAT Poke spot for lunch, that Ryan recommended. Talk about a bonus at the end of the tour! Highly recommended, make sure Ryan is your guide.

Ryan was awesome! The trip is more personal because it is a small group, Ryan was informative about Hawaii culture and patient as we learned the ebikes. The views along the ride, during the hike, and then at the waterfall were breathtaking. Definitely recommend this tour, you will have a great time!

Private Half-day Manoa Falls Hike and eBike Ride
We had a great time e-bike and hike with Ryan. He is professional, friendly and good communications before the tour. Manoa water falls is beautiful with lush green forest. E-bike in town is not so bad, traffic is a little crazy when you are in town. We rode thru roads surrounding by beautiful old homes and Banyan tress. Good experience!!

We highly recommend Ryan of 808eventures. My husband, son and I were treated to a lovely morning of biking, hiking, tour guiding, and snacking, led by Ryan. His e-bikes are modern, clean and well-maintained and he is meticulous in assuring safety. Ryan’s thoughtfulness includes freezing the bottles of water you get so they’re sure to be refreshing after the ride and hike, capturing photos which he uploads to a link, and recommending stops at local’s favorites for amazing poke and shaved ice. Oh, and the scenery on the ride and hike is awesome too, even if it rains!

Private Half-day Manoa Falls Hike and eBike Ride
Ryan and Aya were superb tour guides. Ryan led from the front and Aya made sure my son and I stayed together. It was my first time on an eBike. I totally trusted Ryan guiding us through Manoa. Hiking Manoa Falls was my favorite part of the tour. The air was so fresh under the trees! What a great experience!!! Both Ryan and Aya are very professional and are passionate about their services.

Private Half-day Manoa Falls Hike and eBike Ride
What a great half day tour! Ryan was warm, friendly, and knowledgeable. He took great care of us. The electric bikes were awesome!!! We had no trouble riding from Waikiki to Manoa and back. The hike to the waterfalls was short but could be challenging in spots. We ended the tour with shaved ice at Waiola. That was the best shaved ice we had the whole time in Hawaii! Highly recommend this tour!!
