A Wonderfully Fun Way to see the Island
Kelley_S

The tour guide Steve and his personal stories about living on the island. We loved the Chicken in a Barrel lunch stop was fun. The view of the lighthouse from the scenic overlook was breathtaking. We also really enjoyed the Smith’s boat cruise up the Walilua River to the fern grotto. Lots of fun commentary and we all got to practice a hula dance with the family on the way back!

Fern grotto and breakfast stories of island, we were very disappointed in the entire tour. We had already seen most everything they showed us.
icon Response from Host , Apr 2022
I apologize that you did not enjoy the tour. It was a very difficult day for us as we had a fatal car accident that closed our two lane highway and didn't get to show the guest the north shore or the Kilauea Lighthouse. We did our best to show other spots but all in all it was a difficult day.

Breathtaking and educational tour

Domi, our tour guide, made the full day educational as we learned about island and state history, culture, foods, and landmarks. As a native Hawaiian born and raised on Kaua’i, Domi’s knowledge and attention to all locations visited on the tour far surpassed our expectations. Definitely a tour worth the investment - Maholo❤️🌈🌈🌴

Must-Do Excursion

Domi is the best! We saw Wailua Falls, Kilauea Lighthouse, and dozens of other beautiful places! He is a native of the island and has so much knowledge and a real passion for showing guests the beauty of the island and the Aloha spirit. A must-do, and I suggest doing it at the beginning of your trip so you can plan places you would like to explore more thoroughly.

Totally Awesome
Linda_H

The most memorable part of the trip was the beautiful scenic images of the light house, waterfalls and beaches. Even the lunch was delicious. The guide suggested Mahi Mahi with brown rice and cole slaw. I was really surprised about a lot of the history of Hawaii that the guide shared with the group. He was very informative and certainly educational.

A Day Learning about Kauai
Kimberly_T
, Aug 2021
We were in Kauai with our adult children and their partners and two dear friends, sharing our love for the island with them. Steve Yoder was our tour guide. He learned all our names, how we were all related, and a little bit about ourselves. He used this information throughout the day to engage each person. Steve asked what we would like to see to tailor the day to our interests. Steve was knowledgeable about the island’s history and happenings.

A fantastic way to see Kauai

We had the best time with our driver Calvin! The river boat tour was a fun trip, and we loved seeing the entire island from more of a local viewpoint. We didn’t have a car, so this was a great way to see the island with hotel pick-up included. Kauai is beautiful and we loved seeing it with our driver.

Our tour guide (Domi) was awesome! Never stopped sharing the knowledge, jokes, and camaraderie for the entire 7 hour tour. I'm from Oahu and even I learned several facts in now embarrassed not knowing prior to the experience. Highly recommend. P.S. Huge lifesaver for us since they picked us up from our hotel during a rental car shortage.
