They took us to an outlook, and the view is breathtaking. Then we started biking. The guys were really friendly and showed us all the sights and told us about plants and Hawaiian legends. The ride down was fun and not difficult at all. I liked the bikes too. They were comfortable and appropriate for this ride.
This was an awesome tour! Really enjoyed this activity. Scenery is breathtaking and bikes very comfy. Aaron, our tour guide, was very informative and gave us so much history. Our driver and Aaron made sure we had a safe and fun ride. Morning coffee, muffins and cookies were scrumtious. We saw so many rainbows, including double rainbows. I would do this again in a heartbeat!
This was such a rush. The guides were wonderful and the trip was super safe and exiciting.
Guides were fun and energetic. I appreciated the explanation of the demise of the sugar plantations and what has transpired since. Very knowledgeable of local fauna and flora, very safety conscious, and covered our backs (the van follows after the last rider and kept cars away). Nice views of the canyon - exhilarating ride! No pedaling! Excellent equipment.
This was a great tour. Downhill 12 mile ride. Scenery was stunning. The tour guides, Nick and Harold were absolutely great. Informative, funny and very professional at the same time. We loved it so much, we signed up for their zip lining tour two days later. A++++
This was a trip we will always remember. The beauty of the canyon was breathtaking. Our guides made sure that safety was paramount. Our group was diverse with ages and we all had a great time together. The information our guides told us of the area and island was so interesting. We will always have fond memories of our ride down the mountain. It was exhilerating and a lot of fun. Mahalo
Hadn't rode a bike in 50 years so was a little apprehensive about going on this tour. We have our son with us on this trip and this was his choice of things to do. It was fantastic. Harold and Travis were so friendly and nice and put safety first. I was the last in the group when they finally said we could go as fast as we wanted but I was thinking of getting to the bottom in one piece so they all left me in the dust (with Harold following behind me in the van). I would highly recommend this tour - especially if you want to get up close with the canyon. Well worth the money.
We definitely recommend this tour. The guides Kristen Andrew and Nate were great. The canyon was beautiful and the bike ride was amazing. Was scared at first but Kristen and Andrew made us feel very comfortable and safe
After a beautiful ride up to Waimea Canyon, in our van, we were struck breathless with the beauty of our surroundings! Our guides narrated the entire trip so that we could more fully enjoy the sights. They made us feel safe about our downhill biking experience--not a small thing for someone like me who has not been on a bike in forty years! We never felt rushed as we biked and stopped several times to take a closer look and enjoy a refreshing snack. Then we were allowed to go FASTER on the last stretch of road, if we chose to do so. And several of us did--what fun!!
I was very thankful for Viator's response ( a full refund of my portion ) to my unexpected backing out from the bicycle trip; I panicked and couldn't go through with the downhill bike ride. The staff at Outfitters Kauai were super also; they didn't make me feel embarrassed, etc. Thanks, Viator, for your good will with my refund. I'll definitely recommend you to friends and will use you again in the future!
The views coming down the road are simply amazing! Cruising in the car just doesn't give you the same perspective that cruising on the bicycle does. The guides do a good job of stopping along the way and pointing out trees, fruits, etc., that are native to Kauai. The only downside is the cost for a not-that-long bike ride.
