Kauai Waimea Canyon and Wailua River

Spouting Horn

See many of Kauai’s natural and cultural attractions on this full-day guided tour. After hotel pickup in the morning, relax in a deluxe air-conditioned coach as your local guide shares stories from Kauai’s history and provides narration on passing sites.
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.

Lisa was our guide and driver and made a great 6.5 hours of seeing new sites, sharing background information about the sites and history of Kauai. She is a great story teller and takes an interest in every person in the tour. Spouting Horn, Waimea Canyon, the trip up Wailua river and everything in between were great. Many of these places you can drive to or kayak to but the added value is in the stories about history and how the relate to the people of Kauai today. Great day!

This tour covered so much ground I'd highly recommend it to people who want to get a good overview of many of the sights. We had a wonderful tour guide Lisa was extremely knowledgeable, outgoing, friendly and funny. In addition to seeing the Spouting Horn blowhole and Waimea Canyon and taking the river boat ride down the Wailua River to the Fern Grotto, we stopped at a coffee factory to taste different samples of coffee and see a comprehensive video of the coffee-making process. Fortunately, it was a beautiful day to see Waimea Canyon in all its colorful glory. We had plenty of rest-stops along the way, spent some time shopping and stopped in Waimea for lunch the Shrimp Station was a fun stop for coconut shrimp yummy. This was definitely a highlight of our stay on Kauai....thanks to Viator and Polynesian Adventures Tour!

Wound up being a small group with nice people and we were able to see from the van easily. The assorted stops were great and the narrating by the driver was informative and interesting. As a native Hawaiian it was great to hear the history. We were able to make a lunch stop and good recommendation as to where to eat. Food truck ! Great ! The ride up Waimea Canyon was wonderful and the river boat ride was great too. We were last pick up so didn't have long pre ride but others had been in van much longer than us. We were dropped off last. It is a long day but was pleasant !

We had already done a helicopter ride, so the bus journey provided a second view. Really enjoyed the river part of the trip.

Had a wonderful time on this tour. The Canyon alone was worth the money by itself. Hopefully you'll get Lisa as your guide. She had a lot of informaion and loved to weave jokes into her narration.
