    This westside tour was well worth every moment! Coco was the best tour guide I’ve had- picked me up from my resort when I had trouble making it to the pickup location. Was knowledgeable, funny and made everyone on tour feel comfortable. It was a long day; 8-5 but I would do it again in a heartbeat. Breathtaking views and learned about nature, geology and cultural history of island 🌺 Mohalo Coco!

    This tour was a major highlight of our trip to Hawaii last month. Our guide Coco was organized and so knowledgable about places and history. Her personality was warm and engaging. We loved the whole day. We saw the beautiful canyon, but also many beautiful lesser known places. Worth the time and money!! ~Jeff and Tina

    Wow! The West side of the island is amazing. Coco, our guide, took the time to explain Kauai’s rich history in detail. It was our second day with Coco and it just got better. She takes great care in making the experience fun and interesting. Our 15 year old daughter loved the stories and the Narrations about each site. If a teenager is entertained you know you are on a great tour. Thanks Coco!
