We had one day on our Hawaii trip to see Kauai. Elena was a great tour guide for the precious time. Rather than figuring out directions and parking , she took care of all of that. It was lovely to have her drive us around, see all the great sites, and provide local information. She took care of the finer details like water and snacks. Her lunch stop choice was excellent and accommodated our dietary (vege) restrictions. We would pick her again, given the opportunity.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mahalo Michael for your wonderful review and all your tips and suggestions about visiting the state of Massachusetts! It was my pleasure being part of your Hawaiian vacation and showing the best of Kauai to your lovely family. I hope you had lots of fun on the Big Island. With warmest Aloha and Best wishes, Elena A.

Elena was our guide on Kuaui on 5/23. We rate her 5 out of 5! Very eager to please us and show us what was important to us. Take her recommendation for lunch at Chicken in a Barrel. Lunch was delish and the grounds of the resort were beautiful! We highly recommend her!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mahalo Marla for a great review and a 5 star rating! I am glad you enjoyed your day on Kauai and had a chance to taste our famous Puka Dog. Wishing you more safe and amazing travels! Aloha, Elena A.

Lovely lovely lovely! My parents and I were in Kauai celebrating a very special anniversary, and Elena took us around to explore the beautiful island. I can say, most of our day was spent laughing, we had such a wonderful time with Elena as our guide. We saw some beautiful landscapes, waterfalls and got to see the canyon up close, and stopped for some yummy food. Elena was always accommodating stopping to take pictures & bathroom breaks. Such a wonderful experience and highly recommended to all!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mahalo Manjula for your fantastic review! We had a great time and it was my pleasure showing you and your family this beautiful island on this very special day. Your parents are amazing! Warm Aloha & Blessings from Kauai, Elena A.

Elena was very knowledgeable and extremely organized for our tour. Her vehicle was immaculate and supplied with everything we could possibly need: chilled water, snacks, ice tea, umbrellas and jackets. She is a careful driver and showed us more than we had planned on seeing. She spent an additional hour with us which was a bonus. She also supplied delicious donuts ! I would definitely recommend Elena for anyone interested in a comprehensive tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mahalo Mark for your wonderful review! I always enjoy showing new places on Kauai for the return visitors. Have fun on the Big Island! Warm Aloha & Blessings, Elena A.

Elena gave us an amazing tour of Kauai! She is knowledgeable about the history of the island and has a wonderful way with people. Elena took us to areas on the island that allowed us to see monk seals, turtles, and even whales, as well as one of the most beautiful canyons in the Pacific, waterfalls, and the lush environment. We felt we really got to experience the island through Elena's efforts. We highly recommend Elena to anyone wanting a truly enjoyable tour of Kauai—she is a very, very good guide!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mahalo Mary Ann & Frank for the fantastic review! I am so happy I was able to share the magic of Kauai with you on such a beautiful day. Great whale watching! With warm Aloha & Best wishes, Elena A.

Elena provided us with a wealth of knowledge about the places we visited and the things we saw along the way. We discussed the many stops that were planned and she afforded us a bit more time at those we expressed interest in and let us roam and explore a bit on our own when we spread out. She was always willing to take photos of our group on each and every camera we brought with us. If I ever return to Kauai, I will gladly call on Elena's services again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mahalo Paul for a great review! It was my pleasure showing your family the best of Kauai. I wish Jana to get well soon :) With warm Aloha & Best wishes, Elena A.

Awesome tour. There were 4 of us in the group and we had a great time. Elena showed us around part of the island and the views were just awesome. She gave us all kinds of history of the island and could tell that she enjoys doing tours. By doing a private tour, she was able to take us to spots that the large buses cannot go and we were able to spend enough time a each spot to really enjoy it. There are too many highlights to list. Definitely recommend Elena.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mahalo Stephen for the kind words and wonderful review! I am so glad you enjoyed your time exploring Kauai. Wishing you many more safe and interesting travels! Aloha, Elena

What a day! Elena was a fantastic tour guide. She took us to all the places we wanted to see and showed us sights we didn't know existed. We had visited the island before, so we thought we had a good overview, but her knowledge of island history and traditions greatly added to our experience.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mahalo for such a great review Jeanette! I am glad I was able to show you something new on Kauai. This island is truly an Island of Discovery. Wishing you many more safe and amazing travels. Happy New Year & Aloha! Elena A.

We toured with Elena A on November 12, 2018. Elena was excellent and showed us everything she represented and even more! We planned this tour at the start of our week on the island so that we could determine where and what we wanted to spend more time exploring. She did a great job of showing us many areas of the island. It was an amazing day. Thank you Elena!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Valerie for a wonderful review! I am so glad you enjoyed Kauai and found your lucky peaberries at Kauai Coffee Plantation. Warm Aloha & Happy Holidays! Elena A.

Our tour with Elena was a great success (despite the fact that I was limping along on a sore knee). Among the highlights were the view of Waimea Canyon and Kauai's west coast--and we were so glad she was driving, so we could concentrate on the scenery. Elena is well informed and eager to please. Some might consider her a bit reserved, but for us that was a plus. We liked her a lot, and recommend her highly.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mahalo Richard for the kind words and 5-star review! I'm glad you and Tom had a great experience and that the weather was nice to us. Aloha and all the best! Elena A.

Elena, thank you again for the tour. Everyone had a great time and we made it to shaved ice place last night. Again, thank you. We have used Tours by locals over 30 times throughout the world and Elena was one the best tour guides we have used. We highly recommend her tour.

This was the best private tour of the 6 the 4 of us took while doing the islands on NCL's POA. Not only was Elena the most knowledgeable guide, but her van was spotless, and she used a small speaker system, so was clearly heard—a real plus! Highly recommend this beautiful tour, and Elena as your guide. 5+ stars. Jan Martel

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jan, Thank you for the fantastic review and kind words. It was my pleasure showing you and your family around the island. I am glad you had a great time on Kauai and enjoyed Aloha Sweet Delights! With warmest Aloha and Best Wishes, Elena

Elena was an excellent guide. My wife and I enjoyed the day seeing all of the waterfalls, beaches, and historic sites. In addition, her knowledge of the history of the people of Kauai was most informative and enjoyable.

Elena was very knowledgeable and pleasant during the tour. The van was comfortable and she provided snacks and beverages during the tour. She adapted the tour to our preferences and previous experiences on Kauai. We were interested in the numerous look outs and vistas on the western side of the island. Our expectations were met plus I did not have to drive the numerous winding roads to find all the best stops.

I was not part of the tours that I booked, my Daughter went in my place and this review is based on their experiences: A very nice lady but didn't have the personality of a tour guide.

Incredible six hour tour took us to Waiamea Canyon by way of a coffee plantation. Elena is quite knowledgeable about local and Hawaiian history, flora and fauna, so all our questions were well-Abswered. Elena's car was very comfortable for the four of us. We had many stops for photos, and went to all the best Canyon viewpoints. We had a great day!
