Wonderful - Had a great time with our guide Coco. I would definitely recommend touring with her. We've been to Kauai a number of times before, and Coco showed us sights we hadn't seen before.

Kauai sightseeing tour - Actually the whole tour was amazing. We toured all kinds of places and each place had a story behind it to make it just that more enjoyable. Seemed like we toured the whole island but Coco gave us the inside on each every stop. Thoroughly enjoyed everything about this tour.

You will love this wonderful tour. - Our guide Coco Maria, who has lived in Kauai for a long time, was so knowledgeable about the places and history and we really enjoyed her story telling about Hawaiian legends. We saw beautiful waterfalls, unique towns and beaches. One highlight was seeing the sea turtles on the beaches at Poipu. We would really recommend both Coco Maria and her tour!

Beautiful vistas, great guide! - Super tour! Coco was a wonderful guide, and her knowledge of the island, the people, and culture was outstanding. She took us to so many beautiful places and shared insider tips for other things to do and places to eat. I did this my first full day on Kauai and it was a great overview of the south and east areas. Highly recommended!
