About
[FOR UP TO 7 PASSENGERS, private tour] This tour starts by heading directly to the Waimea Canyon on the west side. On the way there, we will stop to stretch our legs and take a look at the Hanapepe Valley overlook. At Waimea town, we will begin our ascent into the canyon. We will stop at about 1800 feet for our first view, stop at a miniature waterfall for pictures, take a short walk on a nature trail with native Hawaiian plants where you can stand at the very edge of the canyon, and then on to the main canyon viewing area. From there we will head to the top stopping to see the Waipo'o Falls on the way. At the very top we will view two different vantage points of the Kalalau Valley from 4700 feet down to the ocean. On the way back down, listen to a historical tale about the Kalalau Valley. Lunch. Then to the south side for Spouting Horn, Poipu Beach (monk seals) and a walk to see the Makauwahi Sinkhole Cave in Mahaulepu State Park.

Noah is smart, friendly entertaining and accommodating. Literally he’s a born tour guide. He speaks Japanese and English as well. Noah was perfectly willing to tailor the tour to our family’s needs - and this took us on a hike as part of the tour as we like to be active. Would highly recommend this tour for a group. We had a great day.

I had a great time on this tour. Noah really knows and appreciates Kauai. Even though I had been to Kauai before, this tour gave me a deeper understanding of the island. My favorite part was visiting a secluded beach and seeing sea turtles.

Noah,

It was a pleasure to meet you, your tour was the best, it made our visit to Kauai very special and informative. You’re personal touch with musical hiking was especially memorable. Thank you for a very personable experience.

We loved Noah's West/South shore tour so much that we contacted him a few days later to sign up for his East/North tour and luckily he was able to squeeze us in! I cannot imagine a better way to see the island or a better person to do it with than Noah. This is a steal for what you get out of the day. Highlights of our trip, no doubt!

Our group of six loved our day with Noah...it was so nice to have someone knowledgeable about the island and culture do the driving, take us to the must sees of Kauai and share with us his lore and traditional story telling. He clearly is a man of many talents...he played the ukulele for us as we hiked a trail, expertly shared the fruits of the island, was our group photographer and thought of every little detail to make this a great experience. We decided to take the Waimea Canyon tour the first day on the island so we could use all of Noah’s tips for the rest of our stay.

Our first trip to Hawaii and Kauai was a major success all thanks to Noah. Having a private tour was definitely the way to go. It was easy to hear and ask questions. Noah listened to our conversations and tailored our travels to our interest. He made numerous stops for pictures. With him being so tall and his long arms, I didn’t pull out my selfie-stick once…LOL I needed to find a moo-moo for my mother and he took us shopping at the end to find the perfect gift for her. After spending the day with Noah, I can’t wait to travel back to Kauai to see the rest of the island. I can’t say enough about our experience.

This tour was a highlight of our trip to Kauai. Waimea Canyon was beautiful, and Noah knew all the best places to stop. But our favorite parts were the less well known spots in the afternoon. The Makauwahi sinkhole caves were amazing - as were all the turtles and tortoises. Spouting Horn was a great photo stop. Noah's stories kept us fascinated on the drive. Would definitely recommend!

Our tour guide Noah was very accommodating as we reached an hour late to Kauai. Noah has a thorough knowledge of the island and history of Hawaii. Him being school teacher is added advantage as he’s good in communicating and answering all our questions patiently! Noah also picked us some fresh passion fruits! He took us to this local restaurant for lunch “Kalaheo Cafe” where we got great vegetarian food.
Thank you Noah for the wonderful trip experience around Kauai…

This tour was excellent. Noah is knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating. My family of four, including kids ages 5 and 10, had a great time seeing the canyon, turtles, caves, sink holes, etc. Noah picked a great spot for lunch also. Highly recommend this tour!

Noah was the perfect tour guide for our family. He was patient, knowledgable about Kauai, personable and has a true passion for the island. He took us to see the most beautiful places, told really great tales about Hawaii and took us for the best fish tacos we had in our time in Hawaii. Thank you, Noah, you were amazing!
