It rained during our whole tour, but that didn't spoil any of the fun or the beauty of the landscape. Doc was a great guide! Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for an outdoorsy experience in Kauai!

On January 6 we took a trip with the Wailua River Guides. The trip itself was ok. We were not given a choice (even though brocure said we would have one) whether we wanted a double or single kayak. Our guide was nice, I felt...More
