We have visited Kauai many times and wanted to try something new and adventurous. This ATV tour was the perfect choice. Our guides were fun and knowledgeable. My sister and I rode in front with our guide, which I highly recommend. We could ask questions and he gave us information nobody else on the tour was privy to. We also... More

The property is beautiful, no question, but so is the rest of Kauai. If you are looking for 3 hours of active riding in an ATV? You'll be disappointed as that's not at all what you are getting. If you are looking for about a 30 minute ATV that is slowed way down in speed and has 5 stops of... More

We will definitely go back and do this again. If you go I would suggest riding with a guide your first time so that you can get more information on the movie locations, etc. Our guide was James. Great guy.

I have been on Kipu Ranch Adventures at least 15 times over the past 12 years. Excellent equipment and guides. A very scenic Ranch where many moves were filmed. Good emphasis on Hawaiian history. I have recommend this to many friends and all have enjoyed it. I will be back again next year.

Went on an early tour (got a discount due to time of day-much appreciated). Enjoyed seeing the ranch, and many geographical features of the island, including river, ridge, beach, and mountain views. Guides Mano and Giggles were great, appreciated their narration, added a lot to the tour. Would recommend to anyone. Make sure you wear clothes that can be trashed.... More

Okay, first thing's first. Getting a chance to swing out on a rope swing on the actual filming location from "Raiders of the Lost Ark" was a bucket-list level achievement that makes everything else pale in comparison. Well, not exactly. This was a terrifically fun adventure in the incredible Kipu Ranch. Not only was the ranch home to numerous TV... More

This may have been our favorite activity in Kauai. Justin and Manu were fun, friendly, and professional. The instruction on driving and handling the ATV in the muddy terrain was perfect. The ATV's themselves were very high quality and well-maintained. The vistas and trails were beautiful. It was so much fun slashing through the mud. The waterfalls were beautiful and... More

We took the early morning (7am) tour of Kipu Ranch with mostly other inexperienced side by side riders. There were 2 of us but we got our own vehicle as expected. After a few minutes of training for drivers and getting safety gear, we set off for a tour that lasted until 10.30am across the thousands of acres of the... More

The crew, Giggles and Mano - Mono, Moano? The guy that looks like Maui - were THE BEST!!! Learned great facts and amazing stops and destinations. The ride was cool and fun and the vehicles were clean and new. The crew-again- were helpful, hilarious and caring. For any great company, these are the people to want .
