Happy in Kauai
Janis_K, Sep 2023
Coco Maria was an excellent guide on the Kauai Highlights Small Group Tour.. Coco has a wealth of knowledgeable of the Kauai island, kept thing interesting, and gave us plenty of time to explore at each stop along the way. I would highly recommend this tour to get an overview of the island of Kauai and then come back to a particular area to explore further on your own.
Great tour and guide.
Jannine_B, Sep 2023
This tour is amazing. It packs so much in to a short time but we never felt rushed. Our guide Coco is a fountain of knowledge and so funny and sociable. She made our 13 year old son feel very welcome and involved. I highly recommend this your.
Awesome tour
Lorraine_M, Sep 2023
Had a fantastic time. Coco was a fantastic, knowledgeable, fun guide. Stopped at a bunch of beautiful locations. Packed so much into about 7 hours. Highly recommend! Two thumbs up.
Great Kauai Van Tour !!
Winston_W, Aug 2023
Wonderful van tour of the Southern end of Kauai, the owner/driver Coco was a very good & funny tour guide with insightful facts about local tourist attractions (Spouting Horn Park, Hanapepe town, Waimea Canyon, Coffee farm, etc.), nice & comfortable Van with plenty of stops and time to explore with answers to many questions. Highly recommend and time well spent.
Best tour guide ever!
GAVIN_T, Jun 2023
Our tour guide Coco Mary was amazing from start to end. Her warm and very friendly personality made the tour super fun and engaging! The fact that none of us dozed off during the tour shows how interesting it was. And it was a very rare tour that we actually mingled comfortably with the other travelers from other countries too. I highly recommend her if you want a personalized tour of Kauai.
Coco made this our favorite Island excursion.
Gary_Y, May 2023
Although our group had to contend with rain all day and traffic issues Coco adapted the tour to provide the best possible experience under the conditions. She is exceptionally knowledgeable of all facets of Island culture and history. She was great at meeting each individuals personal needs in this day long excursion of both hotel and cruise ship passengers. Coco was so personable we developed a friendship with her and will look her up if we ever return to the island. My wife and I highly recommend Coco and this excursion.
Coco is da best...
Emily_D, Apr 2023
Coco, our tour guide, was so personable (even got a heartfelt hug good-bye from her, so sweet) funny and knowledgeable about all things Hawaii! We learned so much and covered a lot of ground in our tour with her. The only thing keeping this from a five-star review were the cloudy conditions at the top of Wimea Canyon blocking any views, which of course is out of anyone's control, and the flies at the outside eating areas at the Chicken in a Barrel lunch stop.
Carolyn_L, Apr 2023
Driver was caring, concerned about our welfare, knowledgeable, accommodating. Would highly recommend this tour.
Response from Host, Apr 2023
Dear Carolyn L Mahalo for taking the time to review us. We are glad you enjoyed your day and appreciate your business. Travel safe and warmest Aloha :)
A pleasant relaxed small group tour.
Fred_M, Mar 2023
We booked our excursion independent of our cruise ship and met our host ,Marie , at the Market Mall , a short stroll from the cruise port . As we got underway , Our host had us introduce ourselves to one another as a way to break the ice since some of us were from "Pride of America" and some not . Marie related local legends and history and kept us well informed . We always had time for photo opportunities, and made sure we made it to the bake shoppe in Hanapepe before they sold out. The main lookout at Waimea Canyon was closed due to being part of a crime scene investigation but our guide did not disappoint and took us to another vantage point . All told , our experience was very positive and having perfect weather was an added plus . We never felt rushed at any of our stops and were dropped off at the cruise port after our excursion .Well done !
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Dear Fred, Mahalo for taking the time to share your opinion and for supporting our small local business. We appreciate you and are happy that you enjoyed the day with us. we hope to serve you in the future. Safe travels and warmest aloha :)
Real Kuali
Ann_O, Feb 2023
Very outgoing and knowledgeable guide! Made sure we were comfortable and even took pictures for us! Got to see a nice variety too.
Simply Fantastic…and Coco is the BEST!
David_S, Feb 2023
Let me say…the tour was AWESOME! Coco is simply fantastic providing historical and social insight in a very entertaining style. Even more impressive, our ship arrived in port 2 1/2 hours late due to a medical emergency and somehow Coco arranged with the other passengers to wait for us! Our group of 6 people rated this tour 6 stars…better than the best. All we can say is BOOK THIS TOUR…you’ll be delighted!
This tour is one you will want to do!!
Peggy_M, Feb 2023
Loved the beautiful sights. Our day started out with rainbows, the middle a magnificent canyon, and fabulous waterfalls. Our guide Coco was a wealth of history and area culture. We loved it!!
Excellent small bus Kauai highlights tour.
Renae_H, Feb 2023
Waimea canyon and multiple stops to view was spectacular. Guide was awesome- knowledgeable and fun. The waterfall and lava tube spouting horn were great stops too as was the town with the swinging bridge. Did not like the pick up arrangement. Originally told we would be picked up at the pier by someone with a sign. That changed to 15 min walk to a location that was described, but unsettling as not really sure we were in the right spot.
A day well spent
Meifen_X, Feb 2023
Good selection of attractions, very nice vehicle, very friendly service. Small group. We have 13 people
Great tour.
Ellen_H, Feb 2023
Great experience! The tour was very comprehensive. Driver Coco was friendly and knowledgeable. We enjoyed it very much.
Very thorough, informative and enjoyable tour. Coco made the tour fun but remained professional and cognizant of safety
Angela_O, Jan 2023
History highlights and specific scheduled stops were excellent! Highly recommend for all age groups and island knowledge.
Coco Maria is a Spring of Joy, Coolness and Kauai Knowledge
Waraporn_L, Jan 2023
Coco Maria is our guide with the nice group of new friends. Coco Maria is very professional and very knowledgeable. She made our tour so much fun and memorable. I had so much joy and learnt so much about Kauai History and Cool Spots of the Sightseeing for the Southeast. I love Mini Canyon of Pacific, Old town, beaches, Swinging bridge, Sprouting Horn, Waterfalls, fresh coconut water from the local. The trip was very pleasant and memorable. It was relaxing and full of fun, joy, laugh. I highly recommend to book the tour with Kauai Soul Travel. Thank you Coco Maria for sharing your gifts. Best, Kathy 🌺⭐️💫
Great variety of things...
Daniel_H, Dec 2022
Great variety of things to see on this tour! Waimea canyon was breathtakingly beautiful. Also saw so many other things including a huge waterfall, blowhole and small town of hanapepe with lots of cool stores. Our guide was fun and interactive with lots of knowledge of the island and people.
Great tour of island highlights.
Donna_D, Sep 2022
Coco, our tour guide, was outstanding. Very informative. Accommodating to all. The tour was long but perfect way to see a lot of the island in a day. I highly recommend this tour.
Fabulous Tour of South & West Kauai
Mark_S, Sep 2022
A wonderful day made more special by the bubbly, knowledgeable Coco. Fabulous stories & history of the region together with a bit of geology & geography! We thoroughly recommend this tour to people wanting to see the great sites & vistas of South West Kauai.
