Our family of four took the paniolo ride and had a terrific time. Beautiful horses - terrific guide (Lily). This is a very calm ride though the pastures and around the Princeville ranch. Beautiful pastures and even walked up to and through some of the grazing cows. We have done this during a few visits and I would recommend it... More

We chose this tour because we thought we'd have more freedom riding the horses since it advertised we could ride side by side. Well the horses thought otherwise. We felt it was another "controlled"/structured ride. The hike to and from the waterfall is somewhat demanding. You need to cross a waterfall and climb a wall, so if you're not in... More

Horseback riding was status quo, typical pack horses. Stopped and hiked to a beautiful waterfall and took a dip then had lunch. Afterwards hiked out and rode back. The scenery was breathtaking and the guide, Vance was lots of fun.

We called ahead and explained we owed a horse and one of us a highly experienced rider (3-4x a week for 25+ years, endurance racing, etc. etc.). We were assured that was understood and we arranged a private tour in order to make sure. At the onset our guide, while a nice person, treated us like pre-schoolers. We understand insurance... More

We did the waterfall picnic tour and had a blast! The scenery was beautiful, and the hike to the waterfall was well worth it. The horses are gorgeous and well taken care of, which is always nice to see. We had a wonderful experience.

A wonderful way to view the countryside of Kauai. Tour guides provide a nice overview of the history of the ranch, plants and animals. Be aware that there is a also a walking hike involved with some fairly steep climbs (uphill and downhill) to get to and return from the waterfalls.

We had a wonderful afternoon on the 'ride and waterfall dip' trip this afternoon. Our guide was AnnaLee who was one of the happiest souls I've ever encountered. It was lovely to hear her marveling aloud at the terrain as if it was the first time she'd ever seen it and she was charming to everyone in the group despite... More

Riding in California is not the same as Princeville Ranch that has over 2500 acres. We wanted our daughter to experience galloping in open scenic acreage. She took a 2 hour private lesson with Eileen who is amazing with kids.

My adult daughter and I went on the ride/swim adventure. Our guide, Vance did a great job telling us about the history of the ranch, and ranching on Kauai. The horses were great - very sure footed. It had rained so it was muddy but it didn't take away from our fun. The swimming was great - beautiful place. Lunch... More
