“Had a great day...”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

We took the photography/hiking tour on September 23, 2013 which was my birthday. Our guide's name was Kent, and he was very knowledgeable, and was a lot of fun to be around. We saw places, and beaches that we wouldn't of seen or heard about if we hadn't been on this tour. I'm the one who loves to take pictures, but my husband had just as much fun on this tour as I did. Kent had snacks and drinks, so you don't need to worry about taking any, we stopped for lunch at a local food truck in Hanalei. I would definitely suggest this tour to my friends and family, and would go again when we are back in Kauai. The hike down to Secret Beach is a bit steep, so I would suggest that anyone taking this tour be in pretty good health because it definitely gets your heart rate up, we are hikers and some websites rate it as easy, but I would not rate it as that.

“So much fun and educational”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

Went on the tour first full day on the island. Learned my way around, and took some amazing photos. Levi, our guide, took us by a local fruit stand where we ate a fresh coconut. Levi, who grew up on the island was fun and took us to lunch at a local food stand which was very good. Thank you Kauai Photo Tours!

“So glad we took this tour”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

We recently took the walking tour with Matt as our guide. We found him to be both knowledgeable and engaging. There were six people on this tour and Matt had time to help each of us with questions specific to our equipment and/or the beautiful Kauai locations we visited. You can’t go wrong with Kauai as your subject matter! There were plenty of snacks and beverages available along the way and we made a stop for lunch at a local food truck (delicious). My husband is the photographer but I think I enjoyed this tour more than he did! We would not hesitate to recommend Kauai Photo Tours to both photographers and non-photographers alike!

“Another great time with Kauai Photo Tours”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

A few years back I went to Kauai for the first time and found Kauai Photo Tours with the help of TripAdvisor. I liked the tour so much, that last week I went a second time. I had bragged to my friends about what a wonderful time I had on the photo tour that one friend actually joined me. We lucked out and Levi was our guide again. Having a local as your guide truly is the only way to see the best spots of the island. Levi provided a very entertaining afternoon. I appreciated his tips on changing point of view to get a different picture than the rest of typical tourist pictures. Loved the little side of the road plate lunch place in Hanalei we stopped at for lunch. My only disappointment was the weather really didn't cooperate with us. A brilliant sunny day would have put this day over the top.

Kauai Photo Tours is a great way to see the northern part of the island. Maybe my next trip I will go on a custom tour of southern Kauai.

P.S. Levi, was that the male or female pineapple tree at the lighthouse....LOL ;-)

“Great way to see the sites”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

Great value and excellent experience. While this is a photo tour and not a workshop, I got a new camera and Matt was able to share some basics with me so I was able to totally change the appearance of my photos. So happy that I took it at the beginning of the vacation. I was able to learn about the island and was able to take my husband to some of the sites later in the week. I was able to take terrific photos for our 2 week trip due to Matt's assistance. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
