Over 100 years ago Mark Twain nicknamed Waimea Canyon the "Grand Canyon of the Pacific". Experience nature's grandeur first hand on a Waimea Canyon Kauai tour. This fully guided scenic tour takes you to Waimea Canyon and other picturesque locations on Kauai, with plenty of photo stops along the way.
The lines in the Waimea Canyon walls depict different volcanic eruptions and lava flows that have occurred over the centuries. Even though it is smaller than the Grand Canyon of Arizona, Waimea Canyon rivals it's beauty. Numerous lookouts and hikes offer terrific views of every aspect of this natural wonder. The elevation of Waimea Canyon makes the air 10-15 degrees cooler than in the valley and by afternoon many areas are often shrouded in clouds.

Wonderful guide/driver well informed and able to share with his visitors. Only confusion was we didn't realize we were on what was called the 'half-day' tour the website indicated a longer time but joined the group for the lunch on our own at Joe's at the golf course which we much enjoyed. The tour accomplished all we had hoped it would, thanks.

Lukia was a great tour bus driver to Waimea Canyon. What I liked about how she ran the tour, we didn't just go to see Waimea Canyon and come back. She took us to a lot of the local destinations along the way, like Spouting Horn, Kauai Coffee Plantation, and others. She was humorous and helpful. The canyon was breathtaking once we arrived, even on a slightly cloudy day. it looks like something straight out of movie for sure! An enjoyable day for sure on this tour.
