We enjoyed a wonderful vacation in Kauai. One special highlight was our city tour with Domi. His knowledge of island history and sharing of local places of interest, local exceptional restaurants was amazing. We also got to feed his pet pig, “Omar”

If you wish to travel between islands Hawaiian Airlines flies between all the islands. If you stay in Kauai then I would recommend this service as a day tour to travel around the island and see the main sights.
