What people are saying about Kauai

I would have liked more information about the time of the show. There is a lot of empty time after the required check in I could have used to take the train ride, but nobody I asked was able to explain that to me. The vendors had some great art pieces, but that was a lot of time for unexpected shopping time.

Short, but challenging hike. Good amount of time spent kayaking, so bring sunscreen. Nathan was our tour guide, and was excellent! Very knowledgeable and easy going.

This was an amazing experience! Delicious food, great vendors, the show was captivating, and the staff was very friendly. Highly recommend!

It was totally awesome! Gabriel was wonderful! He was very helpful and made the trip very fun. I would totally do again. Thanks Gabriel

Excellent in every way ! Erickson was our guide and was phenominal! 5 star all the way!
