Most beautiful Island
, Feb. 2020
All went smoothly. We flew over from Oahu to Lihue on Hawaiian Airlines and the tour picked us up at the airport. My mom is in a Wheelchair but walks short distances. She saw it all. Our Michelle was amazing, informative and on time. Gorgeous views. Absolutely worth the island hop. Give Michelle five stars and a raise

Our tour guide and driver was Marilyn. This was an excellent tour that I highly recommend. Marilyn is versed in the culture, history, and agriculture. You can't beat the genuine knowledge and stories she shares while showing you the best places around the island. She even sings to the group! Aloha and Mahalo, Marilyn!

Waimea Canyon & Fern Grotto
, Sep. 2019
Spent all day on the tour bus waiting to view the canyon, and take river tour. If I knew this before booking I would booked this separately on my own, I have been greatly dissapointed with the services provided by the staff at Viator!
Massive Scenery!

We had a small tour, 4 people, and our guide was a lot of fun and extremely knowledgeable of the island the area. The Fern Grotto is a 'nothing' and should be eliminated from this tour.

Aloha Jeff, You comment and feed back is very important. I'll relay the message to our Tour Design team. Mahalo again
