This was our second time back to tour with this company. The scenery on this tour is second to none, they take you where no one else can. The guides Justin and Manos are local boys who not only make it fun but know the land and history. Would recommend this to young as well as older folks

'Rents and I had a ATV/Waterfall tour with Guide Mark on 4/18/2015. We opted to have a guide drive since we have never driven ATVs before. We had an awesome time! Got to see so many fantastic sights and learned quite a lot about the movies filmed here, plant life, history of Kauai, etc. 4-hour tour with stops for waterfall... More

Visited with my wife who is in a wheelchair which they stored until our return. Looked after us really well and we had a great time. Our guide was Justin who combined both safety and fun perfectly. We did the ‘Ultimate Ranch Tour’ in a Tery4 vehicle which is pretty powerful and good fun. Recommend taking the early tour as... More

This was so much fun. Lumbo and Mano were so nice, friendly and informative. I was nervous about driving my own ATV for the first time but after the safety demonstration I felt very safe. The views were spectacular the timing was perfect, not to long and not too short. The cookies were delicious. If you're a hard core ATV... More

We wanted special experiences while celebrating our 50th Wedding Anniversary and this was a highlight! Troy was a great guide with wonderful personality and knowledge of the property and Hawaiian culture. The overall experience was wonderful.

We did the three hour trip and had a blast! Our guides Lumbo and Justin were knowledgeable and made the trip memorable. They were also very entertaining! We hadn't planned on doing this type of adventure when we came to Kauai, but we are so glad we did! We saw a lot of great sites and had fun in the... More

We did the "three hour tour" with our family of four, two other couples and our guide Mark. This was apparently a small group so we got to a lot more trail driving than they usually can do(which was just great with all of us). We rode two people per ATV and they were great vehicles- handled well over lots... More

Lumbo was a great guide, he made sure everyone was safe but allows you to have as much fun as you want. Lumbo has a wealth of knowledge and shares stories about his childhood and his family. Driving is the best part about the day and it's up to you how dirty and muddy you want to get, Lumbo made... More

Took the 3 hour ranch tour and had a blast! Scenery was great and Troy, our guide, was entertaining and knowledgeable. Lots of bouncing, dust and fun, but still respectful of the land. Wear old clothes or dark clothing, better chance of washing out the red dust. I highly recommend this.
