We enable visitors and residents alike to discover the rich history, landscape and legends that make Kauai activities unique. Ride through lush green pastures, venture down into tropical Hule'ia Valley, and ascend to majestic Haupu for a breathtaking view of Kipu Kai, Kauai's untouched paradise.

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.

Our family of 5 thought we'd try something different while in Kauai - enough beach/pool time. The ATV tour with Justin was just what we needed - excitement and adventure. Although dusty - fun family event that the teenagers loved. Justin was fantastic - knowledgable and personable - he made the trip. Using the rope swing into the river where... More

Family vacation fun! There were 8 of us, kid: 6, 8 and 9 yeras old and 2 grandparents and 3 adults, we all had a blast. We rented 1 buggy for kids and 1 adult and the rest of us rode single ATVs. If you can ride a single ATV - DO IT! It was a blast. Our crew, Ryan... More

It's all about the people and this excursion wouldn't be the same without our guide Lumbo. We did a 4 hour ranch ATV tour that included lunch. We are a group of 4 and chose the option to drive a 4 seater ourselves. They allow 2 in the party to be designated drivers. The equipment is adequate and there is... More

Signed up for the Mtn tour and got upgraded to the dinner trip. Awesome scenery, guides, and equipment. Had a great time and learned some history about Kauai. Since I was traveling with 3 other senior ladies, we opted for the guide driven vehicle. We chose well because our driver kept taking us off the beaten path to see wildlife... More
