The perfect introduction to Kauai - This was THE BEST experience ever. The van ride up the ridge was informative and personal...not your tour guidebook lecture. The stops along the way were breath taking and clearly ones that were selected from knowledge of the park and different from the normal tourist viewpoints. Safety and the comfort level of each cyclist was front and center. They even ordered perfect weather...not too cold, not too hot and not too wet. The rainbows we saw made our friends think they were photo shopped. I would do it again in a heart beat. My husband and I are in our mid 70s. I am a regular cyclist and he used to be. Totally doable and worth our whole first visit to Kauai, full stop...at the beach at sunset!

More than a bike ride - This is a great tour of the canyon, its overlooks and scenery. Tour guides were awesome. They took photos, played trivia and the group was well tended riding down the mountain.

Top-Notch Bike Tour With Great Guides - Our tour started off with stunning views at several lookouts and great conversation with our guides, both of whom contributed to making the entire trip memorable and fun for the entire family. The ride catered to both parts of our group- parents looking for a leisurely ride and picturesque scenery, and our more experienced riders looking for fast downhill sprints. (Top speed 40 mph!) Guides were highly professional, friendly, and ensured a safe, fun ride for our group aged 14-55. A perfect ending at the beach during sunset, this was truly a highlight of our trip. Highly recommended.
