We took this tour from our ship to Waimea canyon. The driver was very knowledgeable about the area and made for a very interesting tour. He was very courteous. We made it to the canyon which in itself was very spectacular and the only blemish was that the sun was not out. It was very cloudy but they parted for about 10 minutes which revealed the canyon beauty. Very worthwhile tour. Great value.

A spectacular display of natural beautiful!! Not to be missed, it was a highlight of the trip to this island.
Reviewer: Ed Deeds
Would have given our excursion a 5 star had we been on a smaller bus that would have taken us past the first lookout at the canyon. Could have spent more time at the canyon had we not stopped for gift shopping on our way there.

Reviewer: May Lysinger
Our guide was a real Hawaii decendent. She knew many interesting history facts we would not have known if we had a different tour guide. Also very knowlegable about the plants and was able to take us for great photos. Sorry to hear she will be retiring soon.

Our tour to the Waimea Canyon was great. We enjoyed viewing the canyon. It is absolutely beautiful. The stops at sites on the way to the canyon were nice. Our guide had lots of information to share with us.
Reviewer: Judy Heickman
LOVED the tour!! The tour guide was amazing with info on the island. The bus was very comfortable. Waimea Canyon is gorgeous....even prettier than the Grand Canyon. LOVE, LOVE, LOVED IT!
excellent excursion, the driver made excellent comments
Reviewer: Nancy Colladay
We were on a cruise and only had one day on Kauai and wanted to see as much as we could without walking a lot, bad ankles and a bad back tend to slow me down. All the "Roberts" drivers were friendly and knowledgeable. There was plenty of time at each stop for photos. I feel like I really saw a lot of the island.
Reviewer: Carol Lobodzinski
a beauty of colours blending with the backdrop of the sky. Could stare at it for hours. Definitely worth seeing.
Ride and driver were very nice, just wish the weather cooperated at the canyon. Otherwise very enjoyable trip.
Reviewer: Victoria Clark
Viewing the Canyon is worth the price of the tour, and the Coffee Mill was an interesting stop, much nicer than the coffee mill on the Kona tour. Also, the drive to Waimea was beautiful.
Reviewer: Melissa Dannelet
The ride to the canyon is so scenic, the canyon is gorgeous! Would have appreciated more time there.
Reviewer: Evangel Fajardo
The view reminded us of Grand Canyon.
Beautiful part of the island. Breath taking views.
Reviewer: Margarett Terpening
Wow. So Beautiful.
Reviewer: Susan Hackett
WE ENJOYED THIS EXCURSION VERY MUCH. OUR GUIDE WAS BORN ON THE ISLAND AND KNEW ALL THE HISTORY OF EVERY SMALL VILLAGE, TOWN, OR CITY THAT WE WENT THROUGH. SHE HAD A GREAT SENSE OF HUMOR AND MADE SOME STOPS FOR US TO TAKE PICTURES. THE CANYON IS A MARVEL OF NATURE AND SHOULD NOT BE MISSED.

Worth the money! Great views!

Canyon was breathtaking. Our driver was interesting and knowledgable.
Reviewer: Sweet Pea
Kauai was my favorite island! Our driver was Nani. She can drive that shuttle bus like a toy! Waimea is the Grand Canyon of the Pacific. If youíve ever been to the Grand Canyon this is a much smaller version. It is beautiful. Thereís a kiosk at the park that sells tropical fruit like guava, coconut and even sugar cane. Lastly you will be taken to the McBryde spouting horne. That too was a unique experience! Nawiliwili is the perfect place to go to the beach. The water is so clear and beautiful. Just walk outside the ship and catch the free trolley. They drop you off across the street from the beach. Just make sure to bring your towel since they charge for the lounge chairs and umbrellas. You can rent a kayak there too. There are shops to buy souvenirs, clothes and plenty of places to eat and drink within walking distance. Then you can catch the shuttle at the same stop and be on your way.
Recommend this excursion to everyone. Must see.

Very impressive work of mother nature.
The views were extraordinary. I loved it!!
It was a very memorable day. The guide was the best we had in Hawaii.
was great to see the canyon and hear the travel details from the guide
Although our day was foggy because of the volcanos we were still able to view and enjoy the canyon.
Reviewer: HT Flea
Great background info with a breadth of experiences in one excursion - from the canyon to the sea and a coffee plantation inbetween!
This was a sight to see. It was beautiful and scenic
This tour gives you a good sample of the scenery on Kauai. You start down at the port, go through some small towns and on up to the Waimea Canyon. On the way, the guide/driver gives you information on the island's history and explains how the canyon was formed by the collapse of the volcano's caldera. The canyon is beautiful. On the way down, you can see another of the islands, Niihau, and we were told about the uniqueness of that island. Stops are made at the Spouting Horn, a blowhole, on the way up and at a coffee plantation store on the way down. The tour run by Roberts Hawaii, as was 4 of the 5 tours we took. We found the guides and accommodations consistently excellent with them.
We had a great guide who had lived in the area and provided much insight into what it was like growing up and hiking along the canyon. I would recommend this excursion to anyone who appreciates nature
Thanks to our guide we went to the Canyon early in the day when it was clear so we were able to capture many magnificent pictures along with many memories. As we were about to leave, the clouds were rolling in & it was beginning to rain. How fortunate we were!!!! Each time I look at those pictures I am in awe of the beauty & magnificence of the colors.
It was a wonderful trip.
We enjoyed the entire tour.
Reviewer: Senior traveler
Enjoyed seeing the canyon. It was beautiful. Would have liked to have stayed at the ""blowhole"" a little longer.
Reviewer: Jo Ann
It was great, we had a wonderful time.
Will recommend to everyone we know going to Hawaii. Absolutely loved it.
Wow - very beautiful
It was nice to see the canyon and be able to say I was there. The guide was an excellent bus driver up the mountain avoiding the big trucks and workmen on the road that day. She was very knowledgeable of Hawaii facts and friendly.
A beautiful day and a great tour guide.
Reviewer: Grass shack
We studied the excursions prior to our trip to the lovely Hawaii and were very pleased with all.
The journey to Waimea Canyon was just as interesting as actually being there at the canyon.
The journey to Waimea Canyon was just as enjoyable as actually experiencing the canyon.
Amazing place to visit ... Breathtaking
Beautiful view of Wailmea Canyon on top. The road to the top is a bit sharp and is better to take experienced driver.
Reviewer: Brian from Bexley
We were in an overflow group - on a mini-bus. It was much more comfortable than the bigger buses... and getting in and out was a breeze. Driver was very good. I could understand everything he said and, most importantly, he knew when to shut up!!!
Very entertaining and knowledgeable guide. Loved hearing about the island.
A fun half day of sightseeing,made stop at a blowhole and my favorite at a coffee farm.We still had time to spend a few hours at the beach.
