Great experience/Beautiful landscapes

What an amazing tour, Christian, our tour guide was exceptional, very entertaining, and lots of knowledge of the trails and history of the island. It is a must activity in Kauai. I highly recommend it.
Trip from Hell!
, Oct 2021
Every part of my body was in pain! The kayak seats were worn out, the path was treacherous, many people fell. The were reeds that cut you, rocks that tripped you and thick sticky mud that you had the great pleasure to walk through. At the end of the trip I asked several people if they would do it again, all of them laughed and said "Hell NO"! But our Guide Katie was very good. To Viator I am also posting this review on Yelp!

We are sorry that you did enjoy our kayaking and hiking because of trail conditions that was caused by rainfall. We apologize that our seats did not meet standards, as they have been on back order and we have been working with what is available. We have been trying to order new equipment and kayaks since our reopening date which was back in May. It is unfortunate that everything is delayed. Once again we do sincerely apologize. We hope you have a great day!
Totally engaging

Maverick was a great guide. Really enjoyed his commentary about the plants and history of the trail. When he offered fresh pineapple and sandwiches at the waterfall I was impressed. Was surprised that we walked through a river on the hike. Knew it would be wet. Glad I had shoes that could handle it.

The kayaking took some effort, the hike through the forest was easy, yet we felt like it was an adventure. Our guide Zach was very sociable and funny, which entertained the entire group. Fantastic waterfall at the end!

Christian was an awesome guide and was so experienced. He even brought a pineapple he grew in his backyard that was delicious. Definitely thought it was cool he hiked barefoot.

Favorite part of our honeymoon
, Sep 2021
One of our favorite parts of our trip was this experience! Our guide was kind, funny and helpful. My husband had never kayaked before and the guide was patient with us. The hike was beautiful and we were totally in our element! the waterfall designation was amazing!! Would do it all again in a heartbeat! Recommendation - wear hiking Sandals or wet shoes as you do walk through streams and mud. Your tennis shoes will get dirty! Worth it though ;)
Must do in Kauai

Had such a great time on this trip! Our guide was Zack. He was so patient and informative, really great with the group! The hike to the waterfall can get trick at some points, make sure you wear the recommended shoes. The kayak ride was nice to get to the island , about 2 miles. The waterfall was beautiful my friends and I loved it. Definitely check out this tour when in kauai!
Beautiful Destination makes the effort worth it.

Allan was a great guide for our 5 hour tour! He knows tons about Hawaiian history, geography, wildlife and plants. And no Politics for 5 hours! It was a challenging hike for us (65 years old but we're strong with no injuries and keep in shape.) Beautiful scenery for the entire trip. The water fall is real. Thanks.
Fun trip
