All these and more were packed together as one all day trip. It was awesome. We got to see the 2 blow holes, shop and the time allotted to each item was perfect, weather fantastic, sights wonderful and incredible. A great tour guide,who was also the (female) bus driver, with a superb sense of humor. The boat ride was good with music and dance, the rain forest with fern grotto at the end was worth seeing.

We were so glad we booked this tour. Last time we were there our hiking tour was cancelled and there wasn't anything else. This port isn't easy to do without an excursion so we were stuck in a small area by a beach and hotel. It was raining quite hard so if we did not have the tour we would have gone back on the ship. Again, this was booked so we would get to see as much of the island as possible during our time there. The Canyon was beautiful and the river ride to the fern grotto was enjoyable with entertainment on the boat. Some people had their excursions cancelled the night before because of weather. Thankfully this one worked and the weather cleared up later in the morning so we enjoyed the day. Read Less

We were able to see Waimea Canyon which was beautiful and a few other stops. Alex is the owner of the tour and came recommended to me by a friend who had used his tour before. I would not recommend this tour with Alex. While he had information about the island and did bring us to the canyon, he was very rude. He started being rude to a fellow passenger before we even got on the tour. I thought it was just because he was trying to get his tours organized and that he was just stressing a little. Unfortunately, when we were on tour he couldn't stop talking about himself. He complained that even though he has been taking tours to a place for years that the shop was not giving him a good enough kick back. At one point 2 passengers were talking to each other (I was sitting right next to them and didn't hear them) and he called them out for talking and basically told them to be quiet. He then went on to tell us a story of when he was a teacher that he told his student to shut up. We were paying customers not his students and as long as the people talking were not disrupting and people that wanted to listen to him could hear him, he should of just continued. He was rude and I would take a chance going with another company and not Alex. Read Less

we enjoyed this tour. But it was a bit too long. This was a combination of the Waimea canyon & Wailua river. Thought the bus was a bit over crowded, but comfortable. The views were spectacular.

Well worth the drive to see this. A wonder of Mother Nature. Interesting to see all the Tsunami warning sirens and escape routes along the way. It would be terrifying to hear those sirens I am sure.

Another perfect excursion! Our tour guide, once again a native of the island of Kauai, gave a wonderful history of the island and its people. The canyon was amazing and beautiful. I'm sure you beginning to see a pattern to what we like, lots of sightseeing. We figured since this may be the only time we can get to Hawaii, we wanted to see all of the islands as much as we could. These excursions were perfect in that respect. Read Less

A long bus trip and the bus had to stop several times due to overheating. The view from the top of the canyon is breath taking. Very much like Grand Canyon.
