Must do in Kauai!

Allen from Cincinnati, was an excellent tour guide. He pointed out plants, trees and shared Hawaiian stories with humor. I appreciate that he was all about safety too. Had a blast! Hands down one of the best things we’ve done in Kauai.

Had a blast! Our guide Zack was awesome! Had a lot of great stories to tell about where we were and where we were headed. He also had some pretty awesome dad jokes to really round out the experience too.

We have always appreciated Viator matching us up with reliably great tours. Zach at Rainbow Kayak is a wonderful example. The company was prepared, experienced, & well-versed in the area. Zach was welcoming, encouraging, & fostered camaraderie among the group.

We went on the tour with Tom and he was great! Very knowledgeable and made sure no one was left behind. The kayaking was so much fun, then you get to hike through lush forest and rivers. When you think it can’t get better, you come upon the mesmerizing waterfall! So worth it :)

This is by far the best value for a great Kauai adventure. The tour guide, Zach, was just amazing. With the random facts about plants, wildlife, geography, and not to forget the endless library of dad jokes. The hike itself is a must do, plus the kayaks make it a complete adventure.

No waterfall

No real memorable moments. Due to weather we didn't get to go to the waterfalls. You can jayak on a river anywhere the whole point was to see a waterfall so very disappointed.
icon Response from Host , Apr 2022
I am sorry we were unable to make it to the waterfall due to high discharge levels at the river crossing that day. Our #1 priority is the safety. There were people out there who needed assistance in rescue. Trying to attempt to cross the river at the discharge levels readings we got it dangerous. I hope that you can understand why we canceled the tour.

Rainbow Kayak Tours was great. Awesome little adventure ! Appreciate getting out on time and the minimal pre tour bla bla- Thank you Thomas!! Tips: Go as early as possible to beat crowds, you will get wet and muddy - its fun! Good shoes and light rain jacket help. ENJOY the journey!

What an amazing experience! So glad we booked and we really lucked out with such an incredible tour guide, Zach. He was so engaging and very knowledgeable about the history of the island, wildlife, and much more (he's been to 33 counties)! If you get Zach, come prepared to share your best "dad jokes" and hear his as well. It's 7 miles in total and is a long day; you will definitely work your muscles and may experience heavy wind/rain while kayaking and hiking through the jungle. The scenery is insane and you can't beat this experience. A definite MUST, and Zach made it that much more memorable. Thanks for a day we'll never forget!

This trip was fun and challenging. I definitely would recommend it for experienced hikers due to the uneven paths and rivers we crossed.. Should be physically fit to enjoy this adventure.

The kayak and hike tour was great!! Our guide Tom was very helpful, fun and knowledgeable. The kayak was a few miles and we got to the hike pretty quickly. The scenery was gorgeous throughout the kayak and hike. The falls was beautiful and the water felt great! We saw a rainbow going through the falls. The hike was pretty easy for your typical outdoor person and about half a mile in. My 62 year old mother who doesn’t hike was able to complete it. The lunch was simple but good and I’m a picky eater. they served turkey sandwiches, the turkey was freshly sliced and the bread was a soft ciabatta. I appreciate how they leave the Mayo n mustard on the side since I don’t eat that. Tom had it set up really nice and tropical with fresh pineapple and bananas. We did the 7am tour which I recommend since it gets pretty crowded up there. My family is not outdoorsy and were not happy about it at first. They quickly became excited, had all smiles and loved it! Overall great tour!!
