Terrific full day tour! Driver was great, informative and entertaining; he routinely engaged all of us on the tour in his banter. The boat cruise was wonderful. The team that ran that part of the tour was fantastic, incorporating cultural customs with amusing contemporary anecdotes. Would highly recommend!

We had an amazing experience. The pilot was very knowledgeable and the trip was incredible. He was a lot of fun. The experience couldn’t have been any more outstanding.

Scott was knowledge and great guide, was on time for pick up and drop off. Great way to introduce you to Kauai if you don’t have a lot of time or a car, well worth it!

Multiple high points to this trip, with interesting commentary from the guides involved.

Domi was informative and quite funny. Saw things didn't know existed
