Unbelievable experience! Charlie was so knowledgeable and he showed us amazing views! It was a little rainier the day we went and it just added to the magic of the Kauaian jungle. Rappelling down slick jungle terrain and traversing beautiful waterfalls will forever be in our hearts! Thanks Charlie! 🤙

Hike with Dundee
Rachel_D, Jul 2023
Wow! Charlie was everything we wanted and more. This trip is for anyone who is willing to get dirty, actually filthy, and doesn’t mind physical exertion. This is not a stroll through the woods! If you can handle that, this is the best way to see the interior of Kauai. Charlie explains everything— the gear, the plants, the culture. From the very start we could tell Charlie cared. He lent my daughter a long sleeve shirt and pants—the plant life is ferocious out there. So are the mosquitoes! If you are adventurous but not ready to set out on a hike without a guide, this is a must do. If you book this trip, I hope you are lucky enough to meet the stray dogs Charlie has taken in. He really has a big heart for everything!

Great Off the Beaten Path Tour
Sherry_S, Jul 2023
This was a great choice our family made! Charlie was outstanding and there was just the perfect balance of adventure, silliness and overall experiences! Definitely wear pants, slather on the big spray and wear closed toe shoes with good traction. There are parts of the trail that are very muddy and slippery. Participants need to have some basic strength as the repelling and climbing are no joke. If you’re looking for a personalized tour that shows you hidden gems of Hawaii, then this is for you. We loved all of it! 😍
Response from Host, Jul 2023
Aloha and Mahalo Nui Sherry, your Ohana was definitely funny which made da adventure much more fun! A hui hou, malama pono, da hawaiian dundee
We loved out adventure with Da Hawaiian Dundee!
Scott_E, Jun 2023
To use my wife's words, "I started out a little scared and unsure of myself, and outside of my comfort zone, but after the first rappel I was totally stoked and realized I can do this!" Our family had an awesome adventure with Charlie, and what made it more memorable was that we had the entire jungle to ourselves. The terrain is challenging but the views are incredible, and Charlie is a wealth of knowledge about the plants and animals you will encounter. The rappels are fun and my sons especially loved the waterfall dives. It's muddy, challenging, and at times it's pretty steep, but totally worth it. My sons also really enjoyed hearing about Charlie's experience with search and rescue. Well done Charlie!

Best adventure on the island!
Brett_R, Jun 2023
Words can not describe how amazing Charlie "the Hawaiian Dundee" and his tour actually are. His private adventure is the best on the island. My wife and I had so much fun and learned a lot about local culture. If you are interested in a true Hawaiian adventure in the secluded back country, this is your guy! It's better than you could possible imagine. I'd give Charlie a 10 star review if I wasn't capped at 5.

Our Amazing Day with Da Dundee
Steven_M, May 2023
Charlie was amazing!! He is such an interesting guy and shared great information with our family, in addition to the beautiful sites he brought us to. He was so kind to our children and they both felt very accomplished and proud of themselves when we were done. They not only went through a physical, rigorous hike to make it to these beautiful locations, but also listened and talked with Charlie to learn about native Hawaiian plants, animals, and history about parts of the island. He even helped my daughter by creating protective guards for her ankles using leaves, and then braided this beautiful lei head garland that she wore for the rest of the trip! He also helped my son cut open a coconut he had found in the Hanalei river the day before, which was such a nice gesture as he didn’t need to do that after a 6-7 hour hike! Overall, this was a life changing experience for my family, we loved every minute of it and felt like we were leaving a family member or close friends house after our long day with Charlie, it was that memorable.

This Isn’t a Disneyland Ride
Allen_B, Mar 2023
This trip was a bit different than what we were expecting. We got to Charlie’s base and as we’re putting on our gear he was asking questions to assess our ability. After driving through the jungle we jumped out in our short sleeves and shorts and found that probably wasn’t the best choice in clothing. Between the brush and mosquitoes it was a bit rough. Charlie reminded us that this was not going to be a Disneyland ride. We hiked down a ridge and at the end rappelled 250 feet down a steep hill to the river bed. We hiked a ways through very thick trees and brush to a beautiful waterfall and pool. We spent a long time walking under the waterfall, swimming and jumping off the rocks. All the while Charlie was telling us about the land and the people and feeding us fruits and nuts he found along the way. While my wife and granddaughter were swimming Charlie made them both crowns from tree bark, complete with feathers. We hiked down the river crossing it several times while the bass and Tahitian prawns nibbled at our feet. The most difficult part was the climb back up the hill on a switchback trail Charlie had blazed himself. Upon our return Charlie told us that at 77 and 75 we were the oldest to ever do the trek. My granddaughter and I do a bit of hiking, but my wife is not a hiker. She said had she known what to expect she would have chosen not to go. That said this was one of the greatest adventures we have ever gone on. If you like hiking and beautiful waterfalls you will love this trip. Just wear long sleeves and long pants and bring insect repellent.

Vegas does Da Jungle
Cassi_W, Feb 2023
This was the most memorable adventure we have ever been on! From the moment we met Charle, he made us feel like family! We were out in the Jungle and learned to see Kauai in a whole new way. We hiked thru the jungle, repelled down a slippery slope and crossed multiple streams to get to the most amazing waterfall! Completely private and so pristine.. we couldn't help but jump in and play! Charlie was an excellent guide and showed us plants we could eat and ruins form early plantation days. Our trip may be over, but this experience along with the best memories will last a lifetime! Mahalo Charlie.. a hui hou
Response from Host, Feb 2023
Mahalo nui for you 'all' making it memorable!!!!
Best day of the trip!
Linda_E, Dec 2022
Wow! If you want a real adventure and not a canned tour, this is the guy to do it with! A unique adventure with a guide that knows what he’s doing. You’re in good hands and will have stories to tell. Our teenage son said “I’ll follow this guy anywhere!” One of our best days in Kauai.

Amazing Family Adventure
Nick_G, Dec 2022
Charlie took my family on an amazing jungle adventure last week, and it was the best part of our trip to Kauai. He tailored the trip to what my kids (8 and 12) could do. We trekked through the wilderness, with Charlie cutting a path for us. We climbed rocks and waterfalls using ropes and harnesses, and we crossed through a river (our youngest kid's favorite part). Throughout the adventure, Charlie worked to keep us safe, teach us about Kauai, and help us have a great time. This tour was the capstone of our visit to Kauai.

Aloha Kakou, your Ohana made da adventure fun and I really enjoyed being in da jungle wit your kids... Mahalo nui loa, da hawaiian daundee
Best True Hawaiian Adventure with a fantastic Guide!!!
Amanda_L, Nov 2022
Charlie is a fantastic guide. He will take you to places you’d never get to go on any other tours with amazing views and solitude. You get to experience Kauai the way it is meant to be!! He can teach you anything you’d want to learn about Hawaii and Hawaiian culture. Charlie is a wilderness expert that ensures everyone’s safety. The best part about adventures with Charlie is Charlie. He is hilarious, laid back and kind. A true Hawaiian that treats you like a part of his Ohana. Best choice for an adventure on the Island!!! We are already planning our next adventure!!

Epic adventure to remote waterfalls
David_M, Aug 2022
Fantastic adventure with epic waterfalls that were isolated away from any other person. Charlie is an excellent guide and companion who focused on safety yet encouraged freedom during our tour. We chose the most difficult tour and were not disappointed but it’s only for tourists who are in excellent physical condition. Be sure to discuss your physical limitations with Charlie before your adventure begins and keep talking to him throughout your day. Bring water, snacks and appropriate clothing for a jungle. Have fun and keep an open mind for an outstanding and unique event! Charlie is an expert and native who shares a vast amount of knowledge in a delightful way.
Response from Host, Aug 2022
Aloha nui David, mahalo nui for making dis adventure more enjoyable, you and your son was extra fun...lol but true!
Hawaiian Dundee...

Hawaiian Dundee wilderness adventure was our best day in Kaui! Charlie is so knowledgeable about the land and culture of the island. If you want to trek and see parts of Kaui on foot, then this is the perfect adventure for you and your family!
