Description

from Waimea Canyon Experience
his half day Kauai tour will take you to explore panoramic Waimea Canyon which Mark Twain called, "the Grand Canyon of the Pacific." Over ten miles long, and almost 4,000 feet deep, this marvel was formed by erosion and the catastrophic collapse of the volcano that created Kauai. Waimea Canyon State Park encompasses 1,866 acres and is a popular tourist attraction on the island. It provides a wilderness area with numerous hiking trails. It can be accessed from Waimea on Hawaii state road 550, which is 18 miles long and leads up to Koke`e State Park. The island of Niihau, only a short distance west of Kauai at that point, can be clearly seen from the highway. See Hanapepe Lookout, exciting Spouting Horn and the south coast Poipu Resorts made famous in the Elvis Presley movie, Blue Hawaii. View Koloa Sugar Mill, Queen Victoria's profile, and Nawiliwili Harbor.

Onward and upward! Driving up to 3,400 feet to see the "Grand Canyon of the Pacific" - Waimea Canyon! The canyon is 10 miles long, 1 mile wide, and more than 3,500 feet deep. It was carved thousands of years ago by rivers and floods that flowed from Mount Waialeale's summit.

Cruise along the southern coast, diving through Poipu, a resort getaway for those in the know and home of the Spouting Horn. This natural wonder occurs when water rushes under a lava shelf and bursts through a small opening at the surface, making an eerie hissing noise.

Passengers in the Poipu area will not see Koloa Sugar Mill, Queen Victoria's profile. No host lunch. No pick up from Princeville.

Limited time so opted for this full day trip. Very enjoyable. Excellent guide in Tommy Chong. He started the tour by handing out a map of the island with many of our stops listed. This made it easy to track progress during the day. Actually just 8 stops including the lunch stop. When booking had option of including buffet lunch or doing lunch on own. We chose lunch on own. The cafe we had lunch at had a number of choices. My sister had fish and chips. My brother had a hotdog. I had garlic shrimp. All enjoyed. Tommy's commentary full of info on film locations, housing prices and Hawaiian history. One of the highlights was stop at Byodo-in temple.

Our tour guide Leo was fantastic! It was 140 mile tour of Oahu which included all the picturesque sites. Lunch was at the Kualua Ranch after the tram ride which was not included in original tour but was very good and not too pricey. Leo is well versed on the history and culture of the island since he is native to the land. Recommend definitely to take this tour,but it is a very long day ..9 hours...the tour guide makes it fun and educational. Great experience!
