    The scenery was AMAZING and Coco made it that much better. She was very knowledgeable about the Hawaiian history and culture. My only regret is not doing this tour sooner. She gave us a lot of info on where to eat and beaches swim.

    Unforgettable experience with Coco the soul of Kauai Soul Travel
    Jennifer_S

    Best day ever!!! My husband and I had been on the island for a week already, I personally thought we had seen so much of the island with kayaking/hiking, the ATV adventure, the botanical garden tour, and also having a rental car we had explored what I thought was the majority of the island, so I wasn’t sure I would enjoy this tour, but OMG was I wrong!!! Coco was amazing, her island energy was infectious, she took us first to the coffee plantation which blew my mind!!! A totally beautiful place with so much history. Coco made it fun with some trivia that we all enjoyed as we embarked onto our next point of interest, every stop was breathtaking, and all the knowledge that Coco shared was AMAZING!!! Then when we got to the Koke’e Lodge for lunch, where I enjoyed the avocado toast and my husband the loco moco, and upon the suggestion from Coco to try the Lilikoi Chiffon pie, we were happily fed and loved all the food!!! And the added bonus of getting 10% off our check…whoop whoop!!! This tour was hands down was the best day of our trip!!! Coco who is also the owner of Kauai Soul Travel is truly a delightful person who ensured we were all informed as to what happening and shared so much of the history and Aloha spirit, the van had picked up a piece of metal in the tire, and I can only imagine how stressful that would be but Coco ensured we all were informed and safe at all times!! Even with the tire, Coco was aware of the other couples evening plans and ensured even with the tire, we all got back in time for dinner luau plans. The tour was even better then what was described when we booked!!!! I am so thankful for the amazing day that Coco provided for us!!! This tour is so good, a couple who had been on this tour earlier in their trip had booked it again for the day we went!!! In my opinion that speaks volumes about how amazing it is!!! I strongly recommend this tour to anyone, it’s a beautiful way to see the island, with an amazing guide!!! Mahalo Coco and A hui hou

    Waimea Canyon and certain parts of West side of Kauai tour

    So I would like to say first and foremost the tour guide Coco Maria is awesome and very knowledgeable about the area and you can see she has a passion for what she does! The reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is because the overall experience of what we were expecting was less and especially for the price of the experience. We did a similar tour of places in Maui a few years back and you felt more immersed in the experience. I think it’s based on expectations- what the descriptions stated on the various websites and how it was “sold to you” versus what the tour ended up being. I would kind of compare this tour to a “hop on hop off tour” with commentary. You go to various places- take pictures of them and then hop back on and hear more about the area. If that is what you want/expecting than you will love this tour.

    It was a fantastic tour, beyond all expectations.Coco was our guide and did a fantastic job of sharing island information with us. She made the trip even more enjoyable. The restaurant they took us to for lunch (not included in the price) was excellent and very well organized.
