Five of us ( two teens, two adults, and grandma) had a great time traveling through part of Kipu Ranch while learning the local history of the ranch, local culture, and enjoying laughs courtesy of our guides Troy and Mana. All while testing our off road driving skills. Be prepared to get dirty ( don't wear your finest attire) and... More

Kips Ranch Adventures was a great tour. We rented a 4 person vehicle so we could ride with friends all together. It was a great choice for us. The tour included both single rider ATVs and the larger vehicles. The instructors were great and thorough. My husband shared the driving with a friend. The terrain is rugged but don't expect...

Our family went on the ATV waterfall tour last week and we all had a blast. The view on the entire tour was absolutely breathtaking. Our tour guide was Marlon and he not only shared lots of history of the land but also of the Hawaiian culture. It was very interesting and we could not have had a better time... More

I always give you the straight scoop on travel advise. My review "Elvis is alive and well on Maui" was well received with positive responses. NOW on Kauai "Kipu Ranch Adventures is the BEST tour I have done in recent years. They provide 4X4 Kawasaki vehicles that YOU drive. This is not a drive down a paved road. You travel... More

We had never ATV'd before - and we are well into our 60's - so we were a bit apprehensive regarding this adventure. We had nothing to fear. Mark and Mono were excellent guides. Very professional and helpful. They also had a lot of patience. The tour from the river to the top of the mountains was beautiful. Be prepared... More

We drove our ATV off road, and the staff could not have handled our situation any better than what they did... they were super nice about it and made sure we were ok! I had also lost two items on our trip ( needless to say, it wasn't our day at all) and both Mark and Moe were able to... More

We had a great time on the 2 hour leisure tour that culminated at their waterfall. It was a soggy day but we had fun getting muddy and seeing the ranch. Plus the homemade coconut cookies were excellent. We really enjoyed our guide and his knowledge of the ranch, the history of the location, and the island in general. He... More

I did the ATV tour with Kipu Ranch Adventures. Lumbo was a great tour guide. He was accompanied by Trey. I found Trey to be a bit snobbish and a bit unfriendly. Other than that it was a fun experience.
