The tour guide was a very likeable character, gave some interesting info about the island, and also some personal stories about growing up in Kauai. The tour included four stops at lookouts, one for a souvenier/comfort stop, a lunch stop and then ended with the short river trip down to the Fern Grotto. The Fern Grotto had singers and dancers to entertain you, as well they were on board the boat coming back.
The tour bus is one of the big ones, on my tour it had 33 passengers. Note, that if you are picked up from one of the hotels on the north of the island (Princeville/Hanalei) it takes about 2 hours before the tour proper actually starts due to the many hotel pickups along the way (but also interesting in itself). We had another bus driver take us back after the cruise so as to have a quicker trip home.
Extra costs not included in the tour is lunch and tipping for the bus driver(s) and the on the boat entertainment.
This was an excellent tour and we are so glad we booked this as I was a bit aprehensive about flying in such a small plane. I needed have worried as the whole experience was awesome and we also have a dvd of our flight so we can never forget the tour. A very professional company.
great tour. canyon is amazing
This tour allowed it participants to see the various sides of Kauai, view the breath-taking scenery and travel down the Wailua River. I would recommend this tour.
Late on pickup time by 30 minutes but worth the wait. Tour guide Jack Custer was awesome, full of knowledge and great personality. Was a great trip for the price.
I think I would have given the tour a higher rating if it had been on a smaller bus and we did not have to through the long and drawn out process of pick up and delivery. Why not modify this by offering just 2 or 3 pick up and delivery spots?
This was a highlight for me. We were given a wonderful welcome when we arrived.
The staff were great as well. The flight was out of this world, more than I expected.
Upon landing we were given a DVD as a keepsake. I expected a charge but it was
given to us at no charge. That was a first!!!!!!! Viator needs to give more information and the check-in area. What a wonderful experience it was!
Alles top, bis auf den Schluss. Die Flussfahrt mit der Besichtigung der Fern-Grotto war für meinen Geschmack zu touristisch.
The tour was nice. Our guide was great. We went to many highlights of the island. A good tour, but if you have a rental car and a guide book and map, you could do this tour yourself. If you want a guided tour, then this tour is a good choice.
The bus was too big (50 pax), and as a consequence we spent most of the time by picking up and dropping off people from and to their hotels.
By the way I was suppose to be picked up at 8:15 in the morning, but the bus has arrived at 9:00 (that was comprehensible related to the number of participants), without even saying a "sorry for the delay". The tour gives an overall view of the island, but some aspects of the tour must be improved.
A fabulous tour - wonderful guide who made this an extraordinary part of our vacation. When visiting Kauai - don't miss this tour!
