Wonderful guide/driver well informed and able to share with his visitors. Only confusion was we didn't realize we were on what was called the 'half-day' tour the website indicated a longer time but joined the group for the lunch on our own at Joe's at the golf course which we much enjoyed. The tour accomplished all we had hoped it would, thanks.

Lukia was a great tour bus driver to Waimea Canyon. What I liked about how she ran the tour, we didn't just go to see Waimea Canyon and come back. She took us to a lot of the local destinations along the way, like Spouting Horn, Kauai Coffee Plantation, and others. She was humorous and helpful. The canyon was breathtaking once we arrived, even on a slightly cloudy day. it looks like something straight out of movie for sure! An enjoyable day for sure on this tour.

Damien was our tour guide - he did an excellent job. We were not going to do the river part of this excursion because one of us has extreme motion sickness - he said it would be smooth and said we would enjoy it. He was so right. It was everything we hoped for and more.

The tour itself was okay. I had thought that we would have several stops and go further into the canyon, but believe our trip was cut short because they were running 90 minutes late for a bus breakdown first thing in the morning. Best part of the trip was the driver/tour guide named Juan. Born and raised on Kauai, Juan had tons of great facts to share with us and he is a great story teller too.

Excellent tour but, sadly, the weather Gods were against us and we didn't see the canyon due to low, very low cloud lol. All in all a great tour, though.

This tour was good, the canyon was not very clear on the morning we went, but that's not the tour fault, it gets cold up there so take a jacket. Felt a little rushed but not too bad. Not sure it was worth the money if you have a car you can do it a lot cheaper. But overall it was ok

Well worth doing the trip for the canyon views. Anything else is a bonus.

The canyon views were great and enjoyed that part of the tour as it was my main focus. The lunch was very nivpce. However the bus driver didnt stop after the half day component which was my part of a combined tour to drop me off at my hotel. This meant that I went to the Fern Grotto. While this may not have bothered most people since it was basically free, I didnt want to go as I have been before and not particularly recommended going there as it is very overrated in my eyes. So I missed doing what I had planned for the afternoon and the driver was quite nonplussed about it all.

Have done this tour before and had to do it again. The canyon is fantastic. It's only spoilt by the short period of time spent at the viewing point (just 30 minutes). The blow hole stop on the way to the canyon is unimpressive, as are the stops at sights where films have been short. The extended shop at an overpriced tourist retail outlet is particularly unwelcome, but seems to be unavoidable on these sort of trips. However warm it is at sea level, you should take your coat for the canyon viewing deck as it will be cold and windy. You may also find that every photo you take is different due to the constantly changing weather patterns. If you've opted for the river trip and grotto extension, prepare to be underwhelmed by the grotto and to be forced to hula dance on the boat trip back. The view of the final water fall is also unimpressive, but the drivers are happy to transport your luggage on the bus and drop you off at the airport at the end of the tour if this is your last day on the island. The mid-trip meal is at a reasonably priced restaurant ($20ish), but it lasted a little long for my liking and you should be prepared in case you have a comedy driver. If so, you may find that the tour is interactive and that you'll be expected to get involved in the group discussions and hilarity all day long.

They gave me the wrong start time and then almost left without me so I had to chase them down the street... only to be yelled at in front of the entire bus for being late even though I came out earlier than the time they gave me. The driver had a bit of an attitude about it. The tour itself was ok but not worth the price. This trip was the low point of my trip.
