A note about this tour
In order to adapt to this global pandemic, we have made all of our tours fully private and have replaced our previous fleet of vehicles with brand new ones. All you need to do is relax and enjoy the ride in our passenger vans that have been sanitized before each tour.


Experience Kauai's exquisite shorelines and deep, majestic canyons, while exploring the island's rugged backcountry with a private local guide. During this 5-hour tour on Kauai, your day begins when you're conveniently picked up from the location of your choice. You’ll experience Kauai’s rustic backcountry and serene, scenic shorelines, and even see a thundering waterfall as it spills through the tropical rainforest. This tour is completely customizable to suit whatever interests you the most, whether it's spending more time enjoying the beach or sampling local food, and it's a way to experience Kauai in a day - with a local guide by your side!

Simon is a great guide! What started out as a day of sightseeing turned into a spectacular hike in Waimea Canyon. We never would have found this “secret” hike on our own. Afterwards, we enjoyed great local food. We learned lots about local life and culture. It was a wonderful day: 5+ stars.

DJ provided a memorable island experience for us. Venues tailored to our viewing likes, including some off road beaches not available from regular tour operators.

Our family is so thankful that we booked this tour and met Simon! One of the reasons that I think people book private tours is so that they can see what they want to see and not feel like they are rushed or stopping at places that don't interest them. When we got in the car, Simon immediately asked about our interests and things we wanted to see then gave suggestions of other things that we may like also. I love how he valued our input! He engaged our 2 teenagers throughout the day and they absolutely adored him! We definitely saw things that we could not have seen without him. Turtles, caves, overlooks, hidden beaches, etc. He gave us options for lunch and the food was the best of the week. This tour was at the end of our 12 day trip and we cant think of a better way to have ended our dream vacation. Thank you Simon, our family was blessed by our time with you.

Seeing the canyon, the sea turtles and eating at Porky’s were the most memorable. Our driver Simon feels like family now!

Simon was an amazing tour guide. We wanted to see waterfalls and he did not disappoint. He was very knowledgeable about all the places we stopped at and answered all our questions. He’s prompt, friendly, professional and we had so much fun on his tour. I highly recommend booking a tour with him.

Great experience! Simon was a fantastic tour guide. We felt like a friend was driving us around the island and giving us history/culture/fauna/flora information. We were able to see the key places and get information on what to do in the future. Highly recommend this tour- worth every $.
