  • Visit stunning Waimea Canyon, aka Hawaii’s 'Grand Canyon'

  • Includes your choice of round-trip flight to Kauai’s Lihue Airport with optional hotel pickup and drop-off in Waikiki
If option selected, enjoy morning pickup at your Oahu hotel for the ride to the Honolulu airport. 

Board the 45-minute inter-island flight to Kauai, then disembark to meet your local guide and climb in your climate-controlled van.

Waimea Canyon is the first stop, a 3,600-foot (1,097-meter) crack in the earth that is, at 14 miles (22.5 kilometers) long, the Pacific's largest canyon. Stand on the lookout point for fantastic photo ops of verdant valleys and raw, rocky cliffs. 

Leaving the canyon, drive to the Hawaiian islands' last Russian outpost, Fort Elizabeth. Then visit Waimean town, where Captain Cook first made landing in 1778. 

After passing Poipu Beach, visit Spouting Horn Park, where an ocean blowhole shoots water 50 feet (15 meters) in the air. Stop for a traditional Hawaiian lunch at a local restaurant (own expense), then continue to Old Koloa Town, the home of Hawaii's first sugarcane plantation.

Heading down the highway towards the Wailua River, pass Mount Ha’upu and look for the likeness of Queen Victoria on its face. When you reach the river, board a boat and cruise 2 miles (3.2 kilometers) to Fern Grotto, passing Wailua Falls and Opaekaa Falls on the way. At the Fern Grotto landing, climb out and explore the area on foot. 
At the conclusion of your full-day adventure on Kauai, drive back to the airport for your return flight.

Rosario was a very interesting and informative guide. He was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. We loved the view of the canyon and the boat trip on the Wailua River was beautiful and very interesting. We got to see an overall view and feel for this island.

We loved this trip. We were staying in Waikiki and had been to Maui and the Big Island before, but never Kauai. It was a debate about doing an overnight trip, but after reading the reviews of trips, decided on this one 36 great reviews, guess it's 37 now. We are very glad we did! Great tour guide Jonna, as least that's how she said to pronounce it , the trip to the Canyon was most spectacular, but loved stopping in the coffee plantation, stopping for lunch, the river tour trip to the Fern Grotto, the overlooks, historical insights as we went by everywhere. We usually had extra time to squeeze in another sight. I am not sure why some folks complained about getting to the airport early, we thought it was perfect timing and on the way back had an hour to eat dinner at the airport instead of eating at 930 pm on Oahu. Highly recommended, and we are actually glad we did not stay the night. I would do a tour with this group again, to another island we have not seen.

Loved the trip, the guide/driver was the best!

This was a very memorable tour with an ethnic Hawaiian guide who informed us about flora and fauna, Hawaiian history and native traditions. I had learned when I was 12 the motto of Hawaii and recalled it because of his running narrative.

Kauai was beautiful. Tour was excellent. Only regret was would have liked more than one day there.

What we saw was nice, but I had expected more for the Garden Isle. It was a little disappointing after a beautiful, 5-star trip along the Road to Hana in Maui a couple of days earlier. However, kudos to the driver who safely managed to bring the bus to a gentle stop on the roadside after a rear tire blowout.

The bus driver was hilarious and brought us all together. Wondered if we really had to be at the airport 2 hours ahead of time for a 7:30 a.m. flight.

Great tour well worth the travel. Excellent way to see Kauai. The Island was beautiful! I highly recommend the tour. Our tour guide Vinnie was fantastic and very knowledgeable.

Enjoyed this trip, it wasn't as full on as some of the other day trips we've done, great guide who was full of information about the Island.

, Jun 2015

The tour was good, but things got off to a rough start with a driver that took us to the airport who seemed very unprepared for the task. Once we got to Kauai, our driver guide Kamu was exceptional. We made all our stops and the scenery was breath-taking.
