Christian was our guide - he was informative, interesting & knowledgeable about the island & photography. My husband experienced some difficulty with his older canon camera & Christian & Kauai photo tours both did everything possible to successfully save his photos. We went to places we could not have discovered on our own. Would not hesitate to recommend both the... More

My professional photographer son loved the experience last year. Even with a point and shoot camera, I had a fabulous photo tour and learned better techniques even for familiar places. I've been to Kauai over 20 times over a span of 41 years, so finding even a couple of new locations was great. The tour guide Kent and the office... More

I would highly recommend if you were in Kauai for more than just a day. I was on the island for five days and this was one of the things I most looked forward to. It was a lot of fun. We got to see several places I would not have found on my own, I learned a bit more... More

This was a great tour. Each beach we went to was more beautiful than the one before. And, I saw beaches that I probably wouldn't have scoped out on my own because they are a little off the beaten track. I definitely discovered some great spots to explore further if I go back to Kauai some day. The tour is... More

We had a private tour with Matt. We were able to customize our trip to destinations we hadn't seen, hike within our abilities, and got great pointers/assistance individually. We saw breath taking views and got some history as well. We would go again and again since there is so much to see but can't fit it all in 1 day.... More

Even if you have a point and shoot, I recommend taking this tour. Everyone with Kauai Photo Tours was friendly and extremely helpful. Matt was personable and very knowledgeable. Interesting guy and well-traveled. He showed us places that I would have never been able to see on my own...including the Gilligan's Island lagoon. :-) A very fun day!

We had a wonderful day touring with Kent - it felt like we were spending the day with an old friend! Kent shared many stories with us, his love for the island, surfing, his family and of course, photography! He told us about the land, beaches, fruits and even cracked a coconut for us with a machete! It was such... More

Having a child makes it a little harder to get a family photo. This group is professional, courteous and welcoming. Levi is a talented gentleman native to Kaua'i. He made our day pleasant, informative and fun. We did a full day photo tour. It was worth every penny for us. Great experience and can't wait to get our pics! Highly... More

We went on the driving/walking tour 2/4/2105 with Levi. The tour was highlighted in a local Ohio newspaper travel section. We also read trip advisor reviews. It was better than we expected. It was perfect for us, but would advise against it if you don't want to get out to walk around at a good pace in order to see... More

I always check into food tours and photography tours when I am planning a trip. Why? Because they take you where you want to go-where the good food is and things of interest. Nothing better than a local driving you around and learning from them. This photo tour is run by a family that aims to please you because this... More
