    Domi was one of the best tourist guides I have ever had! He was so knowledgeable and shared the history and culture of Kauai in such a fun way. I would take any tour I could with him and would rate him an “excellent +++!

    All of the staff was very friendly. Our pilot (Ray) was extremely professional and knowledgeable.

    This guide was easy to use and really fun! It created a lot of memories for my husband and I during our honeymoon trip. It was so lovely to drive around the beautiful island and take it all at our own pace, getting out at a stop when we wanted or skipping others we didn't care as much about us. It took us to a lot of cool little places on a convenient route that we wouldn't have found on our own. Very informative and well worth the price! It took us about a day and a half to get through it all.

Your tour continues across the center of the island, winding along the rim of Waimea Canyon and to ...

    This is a beautiful hike. It has some steep parts that are tricky. But it is excellent. I would rate it moderate to difficult. Our guide, Malu, was spectacular!
