This was definitely a highlight to our vacation and we cannot reccomed the Tao Luau, enough. What is also a plus is that the price includes admission to Waimea Falls and Botanical Garden. There is plenty of time to enjoy the hike, swim in the falls and change in time for the Luau. We had a large party of 15 and it still felt intimate. From the moment you enter, you are greeted and directed by staff. Throughout the experience, everyone, including the "host" and MC took the time to get to know you and your family. The food was delicious and there was a lot to keep all kids engaged, ages 8-15 years. They even gave a shout out for my sister's birthday and our parent's wedding anniversary

If you are thinking of going to a Luau, don't waste your time and money on any other than Toa Luau! This luau was impressive and intimate, even with 190 guests. The cultural activities before the luau meal are fun as well as interesting. The staff is friendly and engaging during the entire event. The dinner is not rubber chicken dinner even though they are serving so many people. The roasted pork has amazing flavor and the included bar drinks are delicious too. The Polynesian dance show was an excellent representation of many of the Polynesian island. This is a family run business and they treat you like a cousin, aunt, or uncle. We would definitely go on our next visit to Oahu.

We've been to other luaus but this was by far my favorite. It is small and you really feel like Ohana. The staff work incredibly hard and are truly lovely. I would highly recommend this. The setting of it in Waimea Valley is absolutely stunning as well.

Probably the best luau I’ve been to! Ultimately we chose Toa Luau because of the recent rave reviews from others, and we weren’t disappointed. The welcoming staff started our experience with open arms and a beautiful lei, and we felt like we were part of the family all throughout the experience. The dinner was phenomenal, all the way from the kalua pork to the coconut cream cake! The complimentary cocktails were sensational, much better than the typical mai tai. The pre-dinner cultural experience was very interesting and immersive. The performers were amazing and put on a fun show, especially with the fire show finale!

The whole staff was very conscious of the current COVID situation, and made every effort to provide an enjoyable experience despite any current restrictions. I am very glad we chose Tao Luau to end our Hawaiian vacation and would highly recommend them to anybody looking for an authentic and enjoyable evening.

IT. WAS. SO. GOOD. Do not leave Oahu without attending this luau. I have no idea how it doesn’t cost more money because I would have paid double what I did for this show. All of the cousins were so nice and informative. You can tell they all genuinely enjoy what they do, and if they don’t then they are great actors. If you’re considering other luaus- don’t. There’s a reason Toa doesn’t have mixed reviews like the others do- it is nothing short of spectacular. Shoutout to Jr teaching us more about the culture! Oh and free entry into the gardens with your ticket is an awesome added bonus! It was WELL worth the hour drive from where we stayed in Waikiki Beach and I will definitely go back when we visit Oahu again.

Our family had a great time. My husband & I have been to a luau before (years ago & not very good). Toa Luau was a hundred times better. We enjoyed the cultural activities, the live music, and the dance performances. The buffet was simple but delicious and hot. Upgrading to gold was nice because we were seated right in front & got our food a bit sooner (silver still a good option w/ only 200 guests max). Waimea valley admission included so show up early to enjoy the gardens & waterfall. We really appreciated the sincerity and friendliness of all the hardworking staff. If you are spending any time on the North Shore, this is a must do!

I really enjoyed the intimate feel of this luau - like a family party. All of the hosts and dancers were friendly and welcoming. The dancers seemed to be enjoying themselves. We went early and swam in the waterfall and walked through the gardens - this is included in the admission price.

We wanted to do a luau to be complete tourists. We had been to a different one 20 years ago. When I saw that we could also tour Waimea Falls with our fee I chose this luau over the others.

We were not disappointed. The botanical gardens were nice, you can swim in the falls, and then head to the luau. Right from the start they made you feel like you belonged, and we were encouraged to take part in food preparation. The show was also very nice. Staff were amazing and funny.

Amazing! Best luau ever!! We brought our 5 young adult children to Ohau (ages-21, 23, 23, 23, 25) and they said it was their favorite thing of the whole trip. Food was great! The setting is gorgeous! We arrived at around 3:30 (plan for a 2 hour drive from Waikiki). We walked through the botanical gardens and then doors open at 4:45pm and you will want to be there on time. They usher you in and the cultural demonstrations start right away. They are really fun! This is a family-run business and you can tell they love each other and what they do. You will feel like family when the night is over. We would love to go back someday!!

Everything in a Luau and a hike to the famous water falls you could need. The hike to the water falls is a great opportunity to take pictures and see the natural flowers and birds of Oahu. You’ll be ready for the luau when you get back! The food and stage venue are covered. That was a very nice surprise because most luaus aren’t covered.
Chief Jack helped us by applying a sliced onion to a bee sting my Padawan received and saved our entire evening. He was helpful and caring ! Thank you! The luau food was all around tasty! I ate everything! The entertainment is close up and personal. Yes, they have fire spears and dancing! Our favorite performer is Rita. Her charming personality and expert hula dancing kept us entertained and my Padawan princess felt like they were friends.
Aloha! Must see and experience this luau
