Our guide was extremely helpful particularly for our 2-14 year olds, 1-13 and 1-12 year old. We were a party of 11. Guid took time to name trees & plants. Kayak was wonderful, followed by a great hike to the Scecret Falls. Guide was very knowledgeable and gave us a lot of time at the Falls. I rate the Guide 5 stars.
We had a great time. Our guide was excellent! The kayak could have been better. It was difficult to paddle and steer. I have a kayak that is much easier to paddle than the one we rented. It was a very nice trip to the water fall!
We had fun with Brian ,our guide, and the kayack and hike was terrific as well asour time at the waterfall. So unique.
We had a great time doing this tour. The guide coped very well with the different levels, ages and habilities of the people in the group. The hike at the end of the kayak ride was all Worth it. The fall was beautiful and very refreshing ! I have no hesitation to recommend this tour and the tour operator.
Guide was very informative related to history. Great stories related to his personal experiences as a guide.
Amazing experience. Probably the best excursion we did while on the island!
Brian the guide. We own a condo in the Prince Kuhio Complex. We are going to recommend you guys to people who rent from us and tell them to go on Brian's your. He was awesome from start to finidh.
Our guide Brian was awesome!!!
Brian was an excellent guide. He was funny, entertaining and he also made safety a priority. He displayed a lot ot of ptience as well, and when one group had issues paddling, he tied them up to his kayak and towed them.. We had a blast!
Brian was a great guide. We joined the afternoon tour and, even though he had worked the morning tour, he was energetic and engaging. We had an awesome time on Duke's kayak, jungle hike and waterfall swim!
Our guide towed my parent all the way back! Great customer service!
Our guide was exceptional and made the experience unforgettable. This was definitely a highlight of our trip.
The van door would not close. One of our kayaks was taking on water. The hike was more strenuous than expected. Our guide, James was very friendly and helpful when needed. He was very professional. Nevertheless this was a highlight of our vacation.
Our guide was Matt. He is very good at his job. We felt safe and well taken care of. He is knowledgable and friendly. We had a great tour.
We had a great time!
Great guide, great overall adventure.
Beautiful, scenic tour! Worth every bit of it.
Braddah Brian was fun and entertaining. My seven year old niece loved all the stories he had to tell. Great trip, thank you!
Our guide, Brian, was the highlight of the trip. He was very entertaining and is the best guide we've ever had on any tour anywhere, hands down!
Brian took us on our tour, he was an exceptional tour guide. He was very knowledgeable about wailua river and it's surroundings. We had 2 adults and 2 children on the tour and we all Khadijah s great time for
OMG! best money spent so far. we took a 3 hour tour but like Gilligan's Island it's much longer and so much fun. Bryan was our Guide and provided walking stick for us. We could not have made it with out them. other tour groups were jealous. He babied our friend with a bum knee. told us each step to take in the tough part of the trail. the water fall is worth the time it takes to get there.
Quality of service. This tour company including the guide went out of their way to accommodate us. First we were a late booking but they found room for us on one of the tours second the guide Brian helped ladies that probably shouldn't have been hiking yet he graciously and cheerfully carried their pack and help them over the roots and the rocks. The cost was half the price of other tour companies. I will only recommend Dukes. Mahalo!
Brian was great.

We had a great time with a wonderful tour guide! An awesome adventure! Thanks for helping us make great memories, Miguel!
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and patient with various paces and skill levels. The equipment was in good shape and the scenery wad fantastic on the route used.
This was our first time kayaking-we had a great time. The river was very calm and surrounded by beautiful greenery. The hike was also a lot of fun- a bit muddy though but was expected as we read other reviews earlier. The waterfall was a lot of fun too-we dipped in the water. Our tour guide James was very nice and helpful and showed us some interesting birds on the way.
Brian was great!
