Kelly our guide was phenomenal; personable, easy going, informative, patient and fun! We had a large group of 8 with a younger rider and he took such great care of him. This was an amazing experience and perfect way to learn more about the island. Would highly recommend!

Awesome adventure
hafiz_k, Mar 2024
Kelly was an excellent tour guide. He gave us the history behind much of the area. He was friendly and funny and made the trip enjoyable. He took us at our own pace so we could enjoy the experience. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Legendary Guide & Awesome Time
Tara_E, Feb 2024
From start to finish, this was a great time! I haven’t ridden a bike since college, but Kelly was encouraging and helpful all the way. He’s fun-loving and full of interesting information about the area. The views were beautiful, and Kelly took many awesome pictures for me too. He’s been in the area over 40 years and one local even yelled out as we rode past, “Kelly’s a legend!”
Immersed in the island
Esther_T, Jan 2024
Kelly was an amazing guide. He knew so much about the island and its history. Riding a bicycle around, as opposed to a car, was a fantastic idea. I really got to feel like I was immersed in the experience. Reaching the top of Diamond Head felt amazing and the view was stunning. The climb itself wasn’t bad at all but definitely good for a first timer, like me. We stopped at a coffee & bagel shop for lunch, because we were a bit ahead of schedule and the regular lunch place wasn’t open. We had a bagel with lox (everything bagel, cream cheese, smoked salmon). It was probably one of the best bagels/sandwiches I’ve ever had. It was so delicious!! If you are a person who is relatively active, I would highly recommend doing a biking tour with Kelly!!
FUN must do trip!

Tour guide Kelly does awesome job of safely navigating roads to Diamond Head with lots of interesting history too. Hike up DH is a nice challenge and great way to buildup an appetite for delicious tacos afterwards!!!
The best way to see Waikiki and Diamond Head.
Dianne_R, Oct 2023
Excellent tour. Communication top notch. We knew where we were supposed to be and when. Kelly made sure that we were kept informed about what was expected of us. Kelly was a fountain of knowledge and what he didn't know about an iphone and its camera isn't worth knowing. I am looking forward to receiving the many photos that he took. I would totally recommend this tour to anyone who enjoys biking. The bike wasn't too hard, the climb to the top pf Diamond Head a little more challenging but Kelly was there the whole way looking out for us and making sure we were ok.
Ride and hike in paradise

A Day of Adventure in the Clouds
Debra_M, Apr 2023
We had a great time on our cycling hiking and lunch tour with Kelly! The day brought about unsuspecting rain throughout the tour with breaks of sunshine in between and we even had the joy of experiencing cloud cover at the top of Diamond head-which cleared before long giving us breathtaking views of the islands and beaches below. The day was full of adventure and Kelly was a very professional, friendly, and excellent tour guide!!!
Great tour!
Janele_R, Apr 2023
Fun tour with our guide, Kelly. Great insight into and around Honolulu. We’ll worth the bike/hike to get to the top!
Wonderful tour!
Kris_W, Apr 2023

Allison_S, Mar 2023
We had an excellent experience biking and hiking with Kelly! Finishing the tour with fish tacos was perfect! Great way to see Diamondhead!
Great experience, thank you!
Katelyn_P, Feb 2023
Kelly is a wonderful guide and this tour was a great experience! Highly recommend for anyone staying in Waikiki interested an active way to see local sights and learn all about the area. The route and stops are chosen with care and deep local knowledge. Most importantly, Kelly didn't cancel even though no one else signed up AND did a great job keeping up the energy & fun on my accidentally-private tour! Also he took lots of photos for me (extra appreciated when traveling solo!) and had no issues with my dietary restrictions, even called ahead to the lunch place to verify options. Here's hoping I'll make it back to Oahu soon to try one of his other tours :)
Great ride
