Great adventure in Kauai's natural beauty!!

What a wonderful experience! The kayak tour and hike was a wonderful way to spend time together as a family, enjoying Kauai's natural beauty. The river paddle was manageable and the hike was as well. The reward was being able to stand under a waterfall and swim in its pool. Zack, our guide, made the trip fun!

This was a wonderful experience! The kayaking was a mild workout and the hike was not too strenuous. Be sure to wear shoes/sandals that cover your toes and can work walking through water and rocks. The falls were amazing! So glad we were the first group to arrive that morning. Our guide, Thomas, was a joy to be with and a wealth of knowledge about the island and its geological history. Would definitely recommend!

This was a memorable experience with beautiful, rough and lush jungle landscapes. Zach was very informative, helpful and a lot of fun. This tour was challenging at times for us (in our mid 70s) but we wouldn’t have wanted to miss it and we have a great sense of accomplishment for having done it. Be prepared to get wet (we had torrential showers), muddy and have a great time.

Allen was an excellent guide. This was a pretty strenuous trip for us and ended up being 6 full hours. Very nice that they provide free water bottles at the beginning of the trip - we drank 3 bottles each!

Great fun paddling 2 miles up river then hiking 1 1/4 miles to Secret falls. Lunch at the falls then a quick swim and shower under the falls. Loved listening to Allen explaining about all the flora along our hike. Rainbow tours is one of the few which included picnic lunch, bottles of water and dry bags to guests a nice touch for visiting tourists. The shuttle van was like new, clean and comfortable with A/C

This was our favorite activity we did on the island. Zac was amazing. He made sure everyone enjoyed the excursion. The kayaking there was straight forward. The hike to the waterfall was beautiful. Although a little more difficult with the headwinds, the kayak trip back was fun and we felt like we had won the Kauai version of Amazing Race when we were the first kayaks back to the marina. Our hiking sticks helped so much and were the talk of the tour. Would highly recommend.

What a great experience for our family. A two mile kayak up the wailu river then we hiked in about 1.2 miles to the waterfall on a combination of dirt, rocks, streams and a built in boardwalk for much of the hike. Thank you to Allen, our guide extraordinaire!!

Great experience!! Our guide, Kayak Zak, was great... informative, and very funny. Moderate kayak and hiking experience. Tougher kayaking on the way back due to the headwinds. I would highly recommend this tour even for a beginner.

We did the this trip with our family 10 years ago. The addition of the board walks are very helpful! Our guide Allen was very calm, knowledgeable and explained everything in a detailed and concise manner. The trip was challenging and rewarding. The kayaking and hike to the waterfall were a unforgettable way to experience the nature of Kauai In an experiential manner. The trees, river and waterfall are unforgettable!
