Your Kauai trip won’t be complete without this!
, May 2022
This is by far the best value for a great Kauai adventure. The tour guide, Zach, was just amazing. With the random facts about plants, wildlife, geography, and not to forget the endless library of dad jokes. The hike itself is a must do, plus the kayaks make it a complete adventure.
Fun. Beautiful.

We had gorgeous weather. The company and our guide allen was on point. Beautiful place. Hike was amazing and so was the kayaking.
So much fun 🤩

Tom was an awesome guide. Paddling and hiking was easy enough for any adult or experienced child. Definitely recommend and would do again.
No waterfall

No real memorable moments. Due to weather we didn't get to go to the waterfalls. You can jayak on a river anywhere the whole point was to see a waterfall so very disappointed.
icon Response from Host , Apr 2022
I am sorry we were unable to make it to the waterfall due to high discharge levels at the river crossing that day. Our #1 priority is the safety. There were people out there who needed assistance in rescue. Trying to attempt to cross the river at the discharge levels readings we got it dangerous. I hope that you can understand why we canceled the tour.

Rainbow Kayak Tours was great. Awesome little adventure ! Appreciate getting out on time and the minimal pre tour bla bla- Thank you Thomas!! Tips: Go as early as possible to beat crowds, you will get wet and muddy - its fun! Good shoes and light rain jacket help. ENJOY the journey!
Don't pass this one up!

What an amazing experience! So glad we booked and we really lucked out with such an incredible tour guide, Zach. He was so engaging and very knowledgeable about the history of the island, wildlife, and much more (he's been to 33 counties)! If you get Zach, come prepared to share your best "dad jokes" and hear his as well. It's 7 miles in total and is a long day; you will definitely work your muscles and may experience heavy wind/rain while kayaking and hiking through the jungle. The scenery is insane and you can't beat this experience. A definite MUST, and Zach made it that much more memorable. Thanks for a day we'll never forget!
Fun and challenging

This trip was fun and challenging. I definitely would recommend it for experienced hikers due to the uneven paths and rivers we crossed.. Should be physically fit to enjoy this adventure.

The kayaking and hike were easy enough that people of various ages can participate. Thomas was great and very knowledgeable. It was nice to see various landscapes from the water to the river to the waterfall.
