    Not only were the views amazing of the canyon, but the entire tour was wonderful. Nani was a wonderful tour guide. She added so much personal knowledge to the trip and was a wealth of information that made the day much more entertaining! Spouting horn was such a cool thing

    Excellent trip and saw a lot on the trip. Marilyn was a very knowledgeable tour guide and full of fun facts. We would suggest that Roberts Tour company get new mini-buses as this one rattled in the rear of the bus. If you take their bus sit as close to the front as possible.

    My husband and I took this tour and loved it, especially the driver/guide Nani. Nani not only showed us the terrific sights of Kauaii, but she gave us the back-story of the island history. She has lived some of it. After the Waimea canyon, we stopped for a terrific lunch.
