30 year anniversary celebration tour
Candace_M, Sep 2023
Sean was our tour guide for our small party while my hubby and I celebrated our 30 year anniversary and our first trip to Hawaii. We decided doing this tour cause we wanted to see the canyons and explore some awesome places on this tour. He took his time telling us about all the areas he took us and even let us take our time when we stepped out of the van to take pictures, we highly recommend this tour. So much fun. 5 stars all the way…
Amazing Views

Seeing the canyon that close. We’ve seen it from a helicopter and from a cruise up the coastline, but being in it is an amazing experience. Our guide Sean was amazing!
Wonderful customized experience with knowledgeable and fun tour guide!
Kim_P, Sep 2023
Sean was a wonderful tour guide! He catered the tour to our needs and we learned so much more about Kauai than we would have in any other setting. Thank you and Mahalo!!
Beautiful Kauai
Douglas_B, Sep 2023
Sean was the most knowledgeable guide we have ever met. He knew more history, more about the wildlife, plants, and more. He was friendly and let us take our time and drive the pace. Excellent experience. Saw great sites.
We had a great time, the tour guide was very informative and friendly.
Vin_L, Sep 2023
Secret views of the canyon. The tour guide was very efficient and knowledgeable. He show us the spot where we would not be able to find it ourselves.
For a personalised experience.
Cathy_H, Sep 2023
Our trip with Shaun was the best. He was full of information and stories about Kauai that we couldn’t have gotten anywhere else. Because it was just us and Shaun he was able to adjust the stops according to our interests. Highly recommended experience.

Me and my husband had the best time on the Secret Kauai Canyons & Coastlines tour! Sean was our tour guide and he was extremely knowledgeable about every aspect of the beautiful island of Kauai. He was very flexible and catered to what we wanted to see. He took us to some awesome hidden spots along Waimea Canyon where we were able to take the coolest photos. Aside from the Canyon, we visited the Spouting Horn, caught the perfect view of Ni‘ihau Island, stopped at Koke'e State Park, did a quick hike, and visited Kauai Coffee Company on the way back. We ended with the incredible view of the Shipwreck Beach area. It was a lot in a few hours but completely worth it! We love learning from a local's perspective/lens when we visit new places, and this was the perfect tour for that experience.
Great experience
john_l, Aug 2023
We had a great time. Our guide Shaun new all the local areas and was very knowledgeable. Whilst this tour is personalised to the user’s choice, I feel that there should be a standard island tour encompassing all sights for first time visitors. We had to choose what side of the island we wanted and not having been before didn’t know if we chose correctly. We’ll be back to Kauai though to see what we missed!
Amazing views
MARIA_M, Jul 2023

Majestic Canyon and Coffee Tour
JRandall_H, Jun 2023
We were picked up at hotel by Sean and he made us feel right at home. He asked what we were interested in seeing and took us on a pleasant drive where we saw sea turtles sun bathing, the spiting horn blow hole, Kauai Coffee plantation, and the majestic Waimea Canyon. Sean knew some secret spots to get spectacular views of the canyon. He told us all things about the vegetation, history, culture, and life on Kauai. We stopped for a tasty lunch and headed back to the hotel it was a great experience.
Seen it all - not even close
Wendy_D, Jun 2023
Our guide (Sean) had so much knowledge about the island - I ended up recording him most of the time. A great opportunity to find those hidden spots of beauty. Truly personalized to your wishes- we had already driven a lot of the island and Sean took us to all new sights the entire time. Remember rental cars can’t go on dirt roads - this tour can !
Spectacular Day Trip / Must Do!!!
Sue_N, Jun 2023
Sean was an awesome tour guide! And we loved that it was a private tour. He took us to spectacular lookouts with absolutely gorgeous views. He pointed out the different vegetation and we learned how they came to be on the island, how the natives used them and the importance of them today. He shared a wealth of information with us about the island’s history and also current issues the locals are dealing with today. Sean was energetic, friendly and professional. An absolute pleasure to spend the day with! We stopped at the delicious Midnight Bear Breads bakery in Hanapepe for a pastry snack (highly recommend!). We stopped at Koke’e State Park Lodge for restrooms and the gift shop. A cafe lunch there was an option, but we weren’t hungry. Sean also gave us all kinds of tips on what we could see and do on our own afterwards—during our stay in Kauai. My husband and I travel a lot and we do Viator tours almost everywhere. They never disappoint! But this one is among our most favorites. Thank you, Sean! Thank you, Viator :)
Kris_M, Jun 2023
Sean was amazing! He was knowledgeable, friendly, a complete gentleman. I am short he opened my door at each and every stop. He even has a step stool to help me get in qnd out of his 4 runner.
Steve_Q, May 2023
Sean, our tour guide, was the best! He is very knowledgeable about Hawaiian history and culture. He was very adaptable and very patient with all of the questions we Iowans had. He took us to places that we never even dreamed of or knew about (and we did do research on Kauai before we came). Would strongly encourage the tour and if you do it, ask for Sean to be your tour guide. Thank you Sean for a memorable tour.
Good tour to the south of Kauai
Robert_B, May 2023
A good tour of the south east and south part of the island including the impressive Waimea Canyon. Our guide gave us an interesting insight into life on Kauai. I can recommend this tour.
Great Tour!
Zan, Apr 2023
Sean showed us places we hadn’t seen before! He is fun and very knowledgeable about the history of this beautiful island. One highlight was seeing the monk seals on Poipu Beach and then driving a few minutes and seeing the sea turtles swimming in the surf along the rocks. The Spouting Horn is really cool. Thank you, Sean!
Great off the beaten track tour!
Barbara_B, Apr 2023
Sean our guide had great knowledge of the Island- both history and destinations off the beaten path. We have come to Kauai for many years but still saw and learned new things about the island and it’s history.
