From the very start all of the staff were very accomodating and helpful. Jennifer was very helpful the day before in booking the tour. Merlen and Troy were outstanding guides. Both were fun to be around they both imparted knowledge of the ranch and the island. Not having driven an ATV before their instruction made the experience both fun and... More

My wife and I had our own 4 wheel vehicle. We had the best time. The driver can control if he wants to get muddy or not so don't let that hold you back. It was a great tour of the back country on Kauai. We traveled to some filming spots and places only accessible to the public via this... More

We booked this after reading the reviews and GREATLY enjoyed it. We did the ultimate ranch tour which was plenty of time, and rode in 2 Teryx vehicles. They give you a helmet, goggles and bandana to cover your face so that the mud and dirt don't get in your face. Suggest wearing old clothes that you either will get... More

I much preferred this tour to ziplining! You get to spend more time viewing Kauai's nature, hearing great stories about it's history, and it's fun to drive ATVs! The Kipu Ranch crew was very friendly, helpful, informative, and enthusiastic about sharing Kauai and their jobs. The machines, helmets and other equipment were clean (when we started the tour) and in... More

Marlin was our leader, very knowledgeable about the area. saw the filming locations from jurassic park, the rope swing and river... More

If you're in Kauai and looking for adventure stop looking and book the 4 hour waterfall tour! We travel a bit and do "touristy" things and this was one of the best adventures we have been on! I'm sure it helped that we don't mind bumpy ATVs, mud and fun! It had rained the night before and the mud was... More

Wow, what a blast!!! 3 hours went by way too fast. Fun and varied terrain but a safe ride. ATVs were in good working condition. The guides were phenomenal.

Our family of 4 selected 2 ATVs for our trip. Our guides were friendly, safety oriented yet laid back regarding the safe handling of the ATVs. The trails were quite challenging and the scenery stunning. We learned a lot about the jungle plants and fruit trees and got to see 2 waterfalls plus swim where Indiana Jones was filmed. Well...

We went on the New Year's Day. We were with a couple on their honey moon and a large family from the states. Everyone was very nice in the group. We rode in the Kawasaki 4 person mules instead of the 4x4 atvs. Iv been riding atvs my entire life so the option to try the mules was very cool.... More
