“Fantastic Day!”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

I signed up for Kauai Photo Tours in hopes of getting compositions for oil paintings, and the day was more beneficial than I had even hoped! I knew that Michelle in the office is an artist, so I asked her what colors are effective in capturing Hawaiian scenes. She was so enthusiastic in pinpointing which colors might best highlight the different elements in a landscape. She cautioned against over-mixing!

Levi was our guide and based upon being born and raised on Kauai was able to share not only his favorite beaches and out-of-the-way spots we would never have been able to find ourselves but also some flavor of the culture. He introduced us to each site and directed us toward possible vantage points for dramatic picture taking and then circulated among us seeing how we were doing, making suggestions for shots and giving pointers on our particular cameras. As I said, I was really there for getting compositions and don't at all consider myself a photographer, but because he knew how to fine tune the adjustments on my camera, I ended up with some terrific photos!

Thank you so much for a most memorable and helpful day!

“Wonderful Tour”
Reviewed May 8, 2014

Kauai Photo Tour took us to places we never would have found on our own. The awesome pictures we took will last a life time. All the staff were amazing! So friendly and helpful! Our tour guide educated us on local history, customs and even showed us which plants to stay away from when out and about - bad reaction if walk through! We really had a good time and this was one of our favorite experiences on the island. Highly recommend this trip! Thanks Kauai Photo Tours for great memories!

“nice tour”
Reviewed May 5, 2014

we took the hiking tour with our guide Kent. We were shown some really nice places most people would not have seen if tit was not on the tour. But I have to say the little food truck we stoped at was the BEST part of the tour because we were really hungry...we liked the food so much we went back three more times while we were on the island for lunch...Really did enjoy the tour and after that we both went back to some of the places we liked and did more hiking and photo shoots, our guide was very helpful showing my bride the best ways to use the camera she rented from the company...so if you are going to Kauai and want to see places for future hiking then book a hiking tour and enjoy!!!!!

“"Great idea"”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

We took the photo tour on our first day in Kauai, and it really helped to get us oriented and made us aware of beaches and sites we wanted to visit and revisit during the rest of our stay. Our guide Levi was fantastic! He was very knowledgable and helpful in regards to photography, as well as informative about the island and culture. The areas and places he took us were picture perfect, and right out of a TV show, literally! We were a group of 7 from grandparents to an 11 year old, and he made it fun for everyone. We booked the portrait package, so we took a lot of our own pictures, but had family pictures taken as well by Levi. I can not wait to see our pictures. The kids loved being able to swim at the end.
