Favorite island in Hawaii - This was our favorite excursion on our Hawaii cruise! Sean was our driver, and the group was the two of us and one other couple. He took us to some out of the way places to view the coastline and the beautiful canyons. Very non-touristy places! We saw several whales and sea turtles when stopping to see the coastlines. The Waimea Canyon was stunning! We stopped at a couple lookout spots and each was more beautiful than the last! Sean was very knowledgeable about the history of the island and was also a a great driver. We came in on the cruise ship, and took a free shuttle to meet Sean at the ABC store. We could have easily walked the short distance from the ship to the meeting place, and we saw many passengers walking to and from the shopping area. After the excursion, Sean dropped us off back at the ship. We would 100% recommend this tour to other travelers!

Kauai shaka tours - We went last January, but that was not an option in the drop down. We purchased the shaka guide for tours of Kauai- we did all four tours. Loved them. So easy to use, loved the information. Directions worked well

Fabulous day!! - Sean exceeded our expectations Big Time. He is extremely knowledgeable about everything from the island history to horticultural to wildlife to the culture and folklore. We had an amazing time & I look like a genius to my girlfriend for booking this tour. I would recommend this to anyone looking to learn about the island from a local that took us to spots we would never have found on our own. Sean is a fantastic guide!! Sea turtles, Hawaiian Monk Seal and dolphins. And great advice for the rest of our trip!

Great private tour - The private tour was great. Sean was awesome, very knowledgeable about the history of Kauai and the Hawaiian culture. He was pretty flexible with the itinerary and We didn’t feel rushed. Sean took us to a coffee plantation and a few other scenic spots that we would not have known about. The Waimea canyon was absolutely gorgeous and coastlines. Highly recommend the tour.

Informative guide with places to ser - Sean was out tour guide. He is very knowable and told us many folk lores and history about the island. We saw things we wouldnt have seen on our own or know the history of what we saw without Sean. The day brought in rain so it wasnt the best sight seeming but Sean made the most of it. I would highly recommend this tour especially if it is your first visit to Kauai.

Tailored Tour - Fantastic tour with Sean. He is knowledgeable, especially regarding the natural history of Kauai, as well as professional and personable. Very convenient that we were picked up and dropped off at Lihue airport and our pre-tour instructions and communications were very clear. We very much enjoyed our first visit to Kauai and our time with Sean. We will be back!
