I have been traveling all over the world mostly through my work as a musician and teacher. I lived for 13 years on Ibiza, an island in the Mediterranean Sea in Spain. I have organized and facilitated private tours there for nearly 10 years with great pleasure and joy. I love showing people the hidden gems which one can only find when living in a place for sometime. I moved to Kauai in 2014 and shortly after I already started organizing private tours here. I am offering tours for small groups and individuals and my concept is 'less is more'. Which means I like filling my tours with a few, but potent highlights and spending time in these places to catch the 'flavor' and feel.
I used to live in Kilauea on the North shore and got to know the area very well as I am walking a lot. Kilauea is my favorite place as it has many lovely spots to visit and the community here is friendly and open. Currently I live in Anahola which is the most sacred place for the Hawaiians here on Kauai. The whole area from Anahola along the coast to Wainiha is stunning. Apart from historical events the beauty of nature is overwhelming and does not need a lot of commenting.
My tours are for people who like to experience the magic of this island in a relaxed and authentic way. I will bring you to the places where I go in my free time and some of them are away from the usual tourist attractions. I will take you on gentle hikes and walks or stand up paddle on the river. We will explore the beauty of the north shore including empty beaches for a gentle swim and my favorite hidden cave. We will visit the local farmers' markets and discover the fruits and vegetable of the lands. Kauai is the best place to taste healthy products like locally made Kombucha. If you like to meditate I will take you to a private temple or sacred site to sit.
I am looking forward to meet you.
A Recent Review of this guide
Bettina had the "spirit of Kauai" as she gracefully shared with us some of her favorite spots which were off the tourist trail. She gave us a unique perspective from someone who has made it her home. She was attentive our interests and tailored the tour to our pace. She gave us some great tips on food outlets, farmers markets and massage. Highly recommend.
