This is so fun for the family, so many movies have been shot here. The guides Mark and Marlin were super nice. They provided the right amount of information at all the stops. Great views and trails but get ready to get dirty but it is very dusty. I would do it again.

I was a bit skeptical about how fun this was going to be. Our kids would rank this number one! Justin our guide is incredible. Ask for him if you can. The movie sites you get to see our incredible. We all took the Indiana Jones swing into the water! The vehicles are in good working shape and the property... More

We enjoyed a great time on the Kipu Ranch for the ultimate ranch tour. Our tour guides (James and Mark) were knowledgeable and funny, and there are several great photo opportunities. Many of the excursions on the island will take you around/over the island, but I appreciated this one especially because it gave us more of an "interior" perspective of... More

Our tour was quiet an experience. Don't come here thinking it's all level ground and easy cruising.They take you up and down the Kauai terrain allowing for photo opportunities along the way. The swimming holes were a nice way to relax and broke the tour up nicely. Swimming up to and sitting underneath the waterfall for a photo was something... More

Our family of four (kids are 6 & 8) went on the 4-hour waterfall ATV excursion and everyone had a blast! The scenery was beautiful and we got to see 2 separate waterfalls and the Kids and hubby did the Indiana Jones rope swings into the river. Our guides, Troy & Giggles, were awesome, informative and just awesome people. They... More

Had a nice time at the ranch for the scenic tour. Thanks to the view, there really is no way to get less than 4 stars. Basically, if you are a normal non-camping tourist, if you don't do this them you are missing out. Only downside was a family asking for longer stop at a rope swing - made me... More

Chose Kipu after first tour was sold out. Glad the 1st was sold out, this tour was exceptional. Beautiful scenery, amazing crew (James and Mark), excellent equipment. Great lunch, multiple waterfalls- will definitely come back again! Great way to see the non tourist views of Kauai and learn about the native land, people, vegetation, birds and animals.

We had a party of 16 and used the multi-person ATVs since not everyone wanted to drive. Don't wear clothes you care about and use the bandannas and goggles they give you---red dust everywhere! The ranch is a huge and beautiful piece of property. Antone was our guide and was informative and reassuring. He did a great job of making... More
