Lovely day
victoria_c, Nov 2022
Enjoyed our day with Kevin! Very attentive, knowledgeable. Loves his island and sharing it with guests. Learned the history, saw beautiful sites, had a great lunch.
Great tour. Scott was awesome.
Christopher_M, Jun 2022
We snuck away for a few days on Kauai and wanted to make sure we saw it all. Scott was a great guide and knew everything about the island. He took us all around and we were able to see some highlights. Highly recommend this tour. First class all the way.
Beautiful scenery once you get there but it’s a long day in the car.
Denise_D, Jun 2022
This was a long day in the car. The scenery was amazing but it is a lot of driving to get there. While you have a driver it is not a luxury experience.
Enjoy the natural beauty
John_F, May 2022
Scenic views were beautiful. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable of the area and history. The lighthouse was worth the visit.

Orlando the superstar!!
Alyssa_K, Jun 2021
Amazing time!!!!!! Our guide Orlando was so kind and friendly!! He took us to a farmers market and bartered for us for fair prices and helped us pick out the best local fruits. We got to see all kinds of cool places on the island we might not have thought to go to or stop at. I’d recommend this to anyone!!! Amazing time with Orlando!
Beautiful views

Tour of Kauai
Lori_P, Apr 2020
We had a tour with Jack who was friendly and personable. He took us to many places that he was very familiar with and were out of the ordinary. I would definitely recommend this tour.
Response from Host, Apr 2020
I'm glad you had a great day with Jack!
So glad I booked this tour
Margaret_A, Feb 2020
We had a wonderful tour of South and West Kauai. Our tour guide/driver, Jack, was exceptional with his knowledge of Kauai and personable manner. The canyon was a highlight with Jack taking pictures of My husband, son, and myself with the incredible views of the canyon as a backdrop. We also enjoyed the coffee plantation and, of course, spouting horn was incredible. Learned a lot from Jack about the flora and fauna of this beautiful island. Well worth the time and money and pick-up and drop-off were perfect.
Beautiful Kaua’i
Kathryn M, Jan 2020
We were celebrating our 50th anniversary in the 50th State and Domi Ragsac made our day trip in Kaua’i memorable in every way. The Waimea Canyon was stunning. His serenading us on the pier with Somewhere Over the Rainbow and blessing us with the Hawaiian Wedding Song were simply beyond any expectation. We visited the Spouting Horn Park, enjoyed coffee tasting at a coffee plantation and stopped in the Huleia Valley before returning to the ship. Domi proudly claims his Hawaiian heritage and is a wealth of information about the history and development of the island. He gave us our Hawaiian names of tutu-man and tutu-lady. Our grandchildren loved it! The following morning, Domi’s final act of kindness was to return to the ship an umbrella left in his vehicle. Mahalo, Domi.
