My wife and I hired Andrew from Kauai Hiking Adventures for a full day of hiking in Waimea Canyon. We had an excellent experience. He drove us all over the canyon. We hiked some trails that were known and some trails that were secret and very special. He drove us places in his lifted 4x4 we would never have gone on our own. He provided hiking poles and 'chains' for our feet on slippery trails. The chains helped my wife feel more confident "like a gecko" gripping the muddy trail. He brought us to a nice location for lunch and provided fresh coconuts that he cut open to sip the refreshing milk. Andrew customized the day according to what we wanted to see and do. We proceeded according to our own pace. Andrew was very knowledgeable about Kauai and concerned about the environment. He was friendly and very personable. He is also a good photographer and offered to take our photo several times - we got some great shots. We highly recommend using Kauai Hiking Adventures. The day spent hiking with Andrew was an excellent value and a good investment to get the most from your vacation.
