Kauai Waimea Canyon Excursion Reviews

The gorgeous expanse of Waimea Canyon is a sight unlike any other, and a must-see for any who visit Kauai.
Mist meant we couldn't see more than 12 inches in front of us.

we enjoyed this tour.
Sail Date: December 2017
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.

We did the "Journey to Waimea Canyon". The tour was excellent - driven on a big bus to the canyon with some other stops. The canyon was completely amazing! I could have just stayed there looking at it, if not for time to return and all the sun exposure I'd already had on my fair skin. Our guide, Tito, was very knowledgeable but not the friendliest guy ever. My husband says - If you think you want to book a helicopter ride on Kauai, do it early (after checking on their cancellation policy) even if it looks like rain the day before. The company will tell you if it's not a good day. We didn't book for fear of rain, then there was no availability when the weather cleared up. Read Less
