What You Can Expect
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.
This trip is worth the money. There is so much to see and do on the island, however it takes a lot of time to drive to all of the sights because there is only one major road around the island. This tour easily checks a lot of sights off the list saving you time the rest of your vacation.
Juan was a superb tour guide, sharing personal stories about growing up on Kauai. His knowledge of the island, its history, and his pride in his heritage was wonderful. The canyon and river were beautiful and it was a treat to have someone else do the driving so we could see all the beautiful landscapes and scenery.
Overall it was a good one to see the eastern and southern side of Kauai. Juan was our tour guide. He had lots of local stories to share with us. He was very entertaining and knowledgeable. They were also very accommodative to pick us up. Our hotel was not listed in their list of hotels for pick up. When we called them, they were willing to pick us up from our hotel.
Excellent way to begin a Kauai Vacation. Very informative and helpful to familiarize one with the island. Had a great time.
Absolutely one of the most beautiful places on earth. Our pilot was very professional, but also very knowledgeable. He filled us with a great deal of facts and interesting tidbits about the area. And the Sights !!!!!! Oh my gosh. Incredible scenery.
