This was a great day tour to get a good sampling of the island, hitting the main attractions, and learning about Kauai in general. It would be a perfect first day excursion to see the hotspots and know more where you might want to spend more time exploring later. Katz was funny and lovely, and overall the tour was a great way to spend the day!
The trip/tour in general was excellent. Our guide/driver Janna was very informative and worked hard. We enjoyed seeing the blow hole and the Grand Canyon of the Pacific. If I had known that I could have just booked the canyon without the fern grotto I would have. The fern grotto is a tourist trap a total waste of time and energy.. Also I think to skip the bathroom stop with a shop would be a good idea and that would give us more time at the Canyon and more time for a lunch break 45 minutes was too rushed1 hour would have been more comfortable. I noticed that very few people gave Janna a gratuity which is a shame as she worked so hard. It should be stressed more that gratuities are NOT included.. Thank you Janna
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!
