Over 100 years ago Mark Twain nicknamed Waimea Canyon the "Grand Canyon of the Pacific". Experience nature's grandeur first hand on a Waimea Canyon Kauai tour.

Know More about this tour

Waimea Canyon on Kauai is the largest canyon in the Pacific and is a dramatic sight to behold. The canyon measures 10 miles long, 1 mile wide, and more than 3,500-feet deep. It was carved thousands of years ago by rivers and floods that flowed from Mount Waialeale's summit which receives an average of 440 inches of rain a year, making it the wettest spot on earth.

The lines in the Waimea Canyon walls depict different volcanic eruptions and lava flows that have occurred over the centuries. Even though it is smaller than the Grand Canyon of Arizona, Waimea Canyon rivals it's beauty. Numerous lookouts and hikes offer terrific views of every aspect of this natural wonder. The elevation of Waimea Canyon makes the air 10-15 degrees cooler than in the valley and by afternoon many areas are often shrouded in clouds.

    Kats was wonderful tour guide. She is funny and has many entertaining stories and facts. However, this is misleading. It is just a bus tour and you only get 30 mins at the canyon. The info said we get to walk around, so we thought we were actually going to hike in the canyon all day. It also stated no lunch but it should say that the bus stops at a place for you to buy your own lunch. We could have driven up to Waimea Canyon in our rental and did the exact same tour for $5 parking fee. Very disappointing. The canyon itself is amazing

    Joseph was our driver and tour guide. He was great. Gave us lots of information about the area we were in and about the island in general. We saw a lot of the beautiful island except it was foggy and rainy when we hit the canyon area. We waited some extra time thinking it would clear, but it didn't. But...the rest of the tour was great.

    The Canyon itself it worth seeing. It is absolutely breath taking!! The tour and drive, could have been easily driven on our own. Although the driver was sweet and very nice, I felt that the money spent for this tour could have been used on something else. I would recommend seeing this Canyon, though!! Just take a rental car!!

    What a great way to see the south side of the island and learn a lot about it! Our tour guide, Kats, was just AMAZING! So much fun, and the canyon is just beautiful!

    Tour director was excellent - very funny and friendly. The sights we saw were amazing and it was great being given the history of places we were passing through - something you do not get if driving yourself. We also had plenty of time at each place we stopped and were not rushed at all.

    The canyon views were great and enjoyed that part of the tour as it was my main focus. The lunch was very nivpce. However the bus driver didnt stop after the half day component which was my part of a combined tour to drop me off at my hotel. This meant that I went to the Fern Grotto. While this may not have bothered most people since it was basically free, I didnt want to go as I have been before and not particularly recommended going there as it is very overrated in my eyes. So I missed doing what I had planned for the afternoon and the driver was quite nonplussed about it all.

    Beautiful scenery and jaw-dropping canyon. So pleased we got to see this.

    The tour itself was okay. I had thought that we would have several stops and go further into the canyon, but believe our trip was cut short because they were running 90 minutes late for a bus breakdown first thing in the morning. Best part of the trip was the driver/tour guide named Juan. Born and raised on Kauai, Juan had tons of great facts to share with us and he is a great story teller too.
