Evan was a great guide, very personable, funny and just a really pleasant person to spend time with.
Evan was an amazing guide with lots of great history and information. Very funny, and he took us through some extra scenery. We've recommended Duke's to everyone we've met!
Evan made everyone feel welcome. Safety is a major issue but he inserts humor to assure the experience is fun! Can't speak for the food. We packed our own lunch. The hike is easy going (no rain) and flavored with interesting history, geography and flora facts.
Small tour, great guide, early departure
I had a great time Andre was patient and very kind. We had no clue as to how to pedal the kayaks he waited on us to catch up with the group. He helped us to get back to the starting place. The hike was also great. Andre kept it interesting and pointed out sights. I will definitely take this tour again.
Andre was excellent , he was very informative and excellent with our grand kids. I would take that tour again, any day
Great guide, good gear, and amazing environment to explore.
We had an awesome time on this adventure! Evan was a phenomenal guide with a great personality and is perfectly suited to lead a kayak trip and hike. I would advise anyone to take the early morning trip to get in ahead of the crowds, ad the waterfall really is magnificent and great to see First, before the throngs of other tour groups get in. It was a phenomenal easy morning workout and a great chance to see part of the island that you would otherwise miss. Truly a unique Kauai adventure!
Nice to get a single kayak. And Andre was fun and informative. The landing point for the hike was a bit steep and difficult to maneuver and the approach for the falls was steep and rocky.
Had a great time and Andre our guide made the experience even better! He was so friendly and knowledgable, I had a great time learning about Hawaii's beautiful ecosystem
Our guide Andre was very informative and knowledgeable. He did an excellent job making sure we were safe and having a great experience.
Andre was very nice with lots of information about the Hawaiian culture, plants, fruits and trees on the hike
Our family of four had a great time, kayaking, hiking and playing in the falls
Awesome experience... Awesome Guide (John)!
We had an awesome day! One of our top highlights of our 2week Kauai vacation! John was an exceptional tour guide... He made our day that much more memorable!! Thank you John!!
It was a fun trip and guide was great
John did a great job!
Evan was a great guide. Of all the local kayak tours, I'm glad we found Duke's.
John and Chris were excellent tour guides they were hillarious and fun and gave a good tour they also acted very quickly when our boat flipped over all in all it was an excellent experience
WOW! We had such a fantastic time! Andre was an excellent guide and taught us more than we could imagine about Hawaii and the Hawaiian culture and people. He was attentive to the weather conditions as well as the various skill levels of all the participants in the group. We highly recommend this adventure!
We loved our guide and the trip but $10 for the lunch was over priced. The sandwich barely had any meat. in it. Wished we packed a lunch.
Andre the guide was awesome! The only thing I'd say is they should have a list of the names who purchased food. My wife booked the tour that included lunch, but didn't tell me. So I wasn't sure and the tour wasn't sure when it was lunch time. But again tour guide was great...
Our tour guide John was amazing... Our family loves the kayaking and hiking... The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is because the waterfall is pretty minimum. Not anyone's fault (just Mother Nature) but would have liked a little more waterfall. Thank you again for a wonderful experience.
John was awesome! Views were beautiful!
Our guide was sooooo good! He knew so much history and geography that made the paddle and hike very entertaining! He knew exactly where to land and take us on a super adventure. Had a fantastic time!!
Evan was awesome. He was very knowledgeable and fun as well
Really enjoyed the 7AM start to beat the crowds that were showing up as we were leaving. Evan was a great guide and enjoyable to be around.
The guide was very knowledgeable and fun! He paddled back in my wifes double with our son and.helped him get the.paddling down. He was friendly and fun and we felt safe and.taken care of. Also the.trip.felt like.we.really gotto.experience a.real natural part of Kaui with our young 7 yr old.twin. boys.
We loved our guide, John. He was very enjoyable to talk to and very knowledge about the island.
Great guide and tons of fun

Your guide was fantastic. We all enjoyed the trip, his knowledge, and his great personality. I will defiantly recommend this outing to everyone. Thank you so much for the fun.
Our guide Johnny Vegas was an amazing guide. He was very knowledgeable in Hawaiian history and made this an awesome experience.
Andre was an excellent guide - well informed and personable. The kayak and hiking portions were a good length and the waterfall cool and refreshing. Sandwiches were ok, no chips or cookies or anything else though... Weather a little rainy, but kept us cool on the hike.
Our guided trip was great, and informative lots of local history and culture. Had a great family experience.
The tour was fun and we had a great time. John was an excellent tour guide, very knowledgeable, and just a blast to be with. Would recommend for anyone.
