Great tour. Enjoyed the blow hole, Waimea Canyon very beautiful and the Fern Grotto was great. I would highly recommend this tour when visiting Kauai.
this tour was brillant and worth every dollar coach on time all staff helpful and most informative even taught us to dance Highly recommended Ann and Mike Henton
Great trip. Our tour guide was very knowledgable and professional. We think it is unfair that a few complained and they no longer make a stop for lunch but return to the ship for lunch. Since there were 2 buses on this tour, one should stop for lunch and one could return to the ship. Because Noni was born on the island, she was able to share history of the areas that some of the newer tour guides aren't aware of. We would do the tour again and ask for Noni if she was allowed to make the lunch stop.
I have nothing negative to write about this tour. The guides were personable, funny and knowledgeable. We saw more than we expected to see and learned so much about the history and local lore of the island. We had a great time! Money very well spent.
Roberts Hawaii has the most knowledge tour guides. I liked that they split this into two tours and had us eat lunch on the cruise ship. Those who bought this tour from the cruise ship paid alot more and the only difference was a box lunch.
Very nice tour and the driver was exceptional. Very informative and knowledgable.
Great tour, only the guide's commentary was 'information overload'.
Kauai is a beautiful island, one of the small of the four main islands. We choose our tour with Roberts Hawaii as it is much cheaper then the tour offered by Pride of America. It is best to pre-booked through the internet as there is no private tour at the port. The tour bus driver is very knowledgeable about the place and provides interesting information and facts about the tour. Waimea Canyon is beautiful. The sight takes you back to the dinosaur time. The Waimea Canyon tour is only half a day. The tour bus takes you back to the ship for lunch before the river cruise tour in the afternoon. We went to see a waterfall before the river cruise. The river cruise is on a flat bottom boat with Hawaii songs and dances. It was a relaxing experience.
Enjoyed both the canyon and river cruise, especially the Fern Grotto. Splitting the two excursions between morning and afternoon was great! It allowed us to have lunch back on the ship and gave us a break from what would have been a long, tiring day.
Waimea canyon trip = 5 stars, highly recommended. River trip worth seeing but probably only a 3. Guide Clarence was very pleasant.
Great drivers, informative and friendly. Good stops for the amount of time you have to see everything. Definitely would recommend.
