About this tour

This guided bike tour takes you to the Mount Tantalus Lookout; the highest point on O’ahu.  Towering up over the hills behind Honolulu, Mount Tantalus rewards those willing to make it to the top with some of the most fabulous views on the island. With this guided bicycle tour, you’ll climb around 1500 feet to the summit of the hill, making your way through switchbacks and canopy-lined roads.

What you'll see along the route

President Obama’s high school (Punahou School), Spalding House museum and restaurant, Punchbowl Cemetery, Tantalus lookout with incredible panoramic views. Look for the hidden swing!

What to expect

The tour starts at our convenient location at Ohana Waikiki East. We’ll make sure everyone is on the right sized bicycle and give you a safety introduction. From there we’ll head out through Waikiki and Honolulu to the bottom of Tantalus. We ride past Obama’s childhood home and high school, as well as other historical landmarks. We’ll climb up Round Top Drive and stop for views of Pearl Harbor and the Waianae mountain range. On the way down we’ll stop by the Puʻu ʻUalakaʻa State Wayside and learn some history about the area, as well as take in the unique views of Diamond Head below. We’ll finish the decent and make our way back to Waikiki. This is a challenging, yet rewarding climb. The road can be slippery and bumpy at points, plus rain is possible at the top. This is not recommended for beginners or children. We have different pedals (Look, Shimano, Speedplay) if you bring your cycling shoes or we can install flats or toe-cages. You have two bikes to choose from, our sport road bike or our pro road bike. Sport is an aluminum disc brake road bike, while pro is a carbon rim brake bicycle. Both are great options for climbing Mt. Tantalus. Let’s go climb a mountain!

"Great and efficient staff! I sprained my knee a couple of weeks ago, so I rented the electric assist bike up to the Diamondhead Crater, and it was a beautiful ride. Would recommend highly!"
