Our guide (Susan) was wonderful. Love the historical stories weaved in-between our food stops. The food was great! We were concerned that we would be hungry after, but it was a right balance of great food. Stopping at places (gems) I would have normally passed by. We have already booked for our next stay on a different part of the island.

Excellent tour! Rosario was an excellent guide, he educated us on the customs and traditions of the island. He was friendly and personable. Taught us some Hawaiian words and we learned to hula on the Fern Grotto boat ride. The variety of places we saw were amazing!Worth the money!!

Great snorkeling experience. Liked it so much I’m goin* to buy one of these scooters. The staff were top notch. Knowledgeable and very helpful. They go to the extremes to make their customers happy and satisfied. I highly recommend and would use them again.

We thought the program was incredibly helpful. The information offered was both informative and many times entertaining. The feature that allowed the app to know where we were made for a seamless experience as we traveled Kauai.

Susan was knowledgeable about food, history & culture. Super guide! Plus, the food was delicious! Our favorite was the last stop, the banana cream pie!😋
