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.

Chicken lice and fleas will eat you alive on this tour. A bad guide named Troy will ruin your day as well. Go to the north shore ATV ride rent a car

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. We take all reviews seriously and we are always looking at ways to improve our operation. If you have made your way around Kauai you’ll see why there’s so much talk about Kauai chickens. They’re everywhere! I’m sure you may see a couple around our trails here and there along... More

Mark and James were terrific. We felt as if we were part of their family. Tour was fun, pace was quick, breaks were well timed and safety was top priority. Views from the mountain were spectacular. There were 6 of us on the tour, ages ranging from 58 to 21. We each drove a single ATV and we'd go again... More

We did the three hour Ultimate Ranch Tour at 7 AM on a Monday morning. A little hard to find if your not using navigation as not a lot of signs, but not a problem in 2015. We had a group of 4 in a 4 seat ATV. I drove the whole time, and I would have had a blast... More

We had a great time. Be prepared to get red dusty. We saw movie locations, went fast and had a great time. The guides, Mark and Ryan were fun!

We decided to go in an adventure for a friends birthday and boy did we have an awesome time! "The best birthday I ever had" is what the birthday girl said after our tour! From the friendly helpful tour guide, to the amazing breathtaking scenery every part of our waterfall tour was perfection! It was so much I'm doing it... More

We did the 4 hour Waterfall tour on single ATV's and had a blast!! No question this is the most fun and nicest way to see a working ranch, waterfalls, a tropical forest and numerous movie scenes you will easily recognize! Yes it is dusty but our excellent guides equipped us well and both Marlon and Ryan practiced safety first... More

My husband and I went on the 4 hour waterfall tour on single ATVs. I had a blast on the single ATV. It was more work and my thumb was aching at times but it was so worth it. The guides are really good at having fun while stressing the importance of safety. It was one of our favorite adventures... More

We recently took the Ultimate Ranch Tour for 3 hours in a Tyrex. The whole experience was excellent. Mark and Ryan were excellent tour guides and made the trip fun while keeping everyone safe. We had originally booked 2 ATV's and 1 Tyrex for 4 adults. Once we arrived, we decided that 2 Tyrex would be better and there was... More

This was our second time taking the same tour. We did it back in 2011 & on Feb. 5th, 2015. To let you know how much we enjoyed this tour, we actually stayed on Maui, but made a special day trip to Kauai to do the Kipu Ranch tour. The first time my husband and I shared a four-wheeler, but... More

I took my 13- and 15-year old sons on the tour and we shared a 4-seat ATV. It was our first time on an ATV tour. Our tour guides Mark and Mauno (sp?) were first class, answered all questions and were professional in their advice. Mark in particular shared his wealth of knowledge about the island (he grew up in... More
