What You Can Expect

Kauai Waimea Canyon and Wailua River

Spouting Horn

See many of Kauai’s natural and cultural attractions on this full-day guided tour. After hotel pickup in the morning, relax in a deluxe air-conditioned coach as your local guide shares stories from Kauai’s history and provides narration on passing sites. 

As you make your way toward the rocky red landscape of Waimea, pass local attractions like the Spouting Horn natural blowhole, the historic Koloa Sugar Mill, Nawiliwili Harbor and Queen Victoria’s profile. Drive by the character-filled town of Hanapepe and ogle the luxury resorts along golden sandy beaches of Poipu. 

Drive up a scenic winding road to reach the lip of Waimea Canyon for breathtaking views of the so-called ‘Grand Canyon of the Pacific.’ Carved by the passage of water over thousands of years, the red lava rock canyon stretches an impressive 10 miles (16 km) long and 1 mile (1.6 km) wide. 

See another side of Kauai with a cruise down the scenic Wailua River, considered to be sacred by native Hawaiians. Relax as your boat leisurely traverses the gentle currents and soak in the lush tropical landscape. Visit nearby attractions such as the Fern Grotto, the sacred royal Birthstone, Opaekka Falls and Coco Palms Grove. 

At the end of your full-day Kauai adventure, you’ll be dropped off back at your hotel in the early evening.

Juan, our guide, was worth the entire cost of the tour. We enjoyed his knowledge and wonderful attitude. Taking this tour early in our Kauai stay helped us to plan our independent activities.

This tour is definitely worth taking. I highly recommend it for new visitors and returning ohana family alike. Our tour guide, Juan, led us through an amazinng story-book tour on July 7, 2015 on the history, culture and people of the island of Kaua'i. We were picked up at our hotel by Juan on an air-conditioned bus. Besides the 4 of us in our group, the only other people on this tour was a newly-wed couple from Italy. Juan personalized his narration and answered any questions we had as we were expertly escorted to each stop. We did not feel rushed or hurried at any time during our tour. If you truly want to experience the spirit of 'Aloha' from the island, take this tour and you'll be amazed at what you learn and take back with you.
