We had an excellent tour with Noah. Noah is very personable, knowledgeable about the island, and funny and it felt like we were touring with an old friend. Our cruise ship docked late and Noah was very flexible and did not rush our tour at all. If you are visiting from a cruise ship please consider booking this tour, it is so much better than those huge tour buses and much more fun! We visited a lot of places off the beaten path. We would highly recommend Noah and would love to tour with him again

Noah was absolutely the best guide we could have ever hoped for!! We could not have imagined how fortunate our group was to have him show us around the North Shore of Kauai. So informative and very sensitive to our special disabled needs. And what a treat to have him play the ukulele & sing! Very Hawaiian vibe and tons of fun! Thank you Noah - absolutely the highlight of everyone's trip! Mahalo!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the wonderful review Tina! I had a fun day getting to know you guys. Congratulations to all and the newlyweds! Aloha

Noah is a wonderful guide. He knows Kauai Island, its sightseeing locations, he is knowledgeable about the island's history/culture, and he is a good storyteller. A day spent with Noah was fun and a great way to see Kauai's beauty.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Firoze! Kind words. Had a great day with you guys and learned a few things myself. All the best and happy travels!

Date: Feb 3/20

Our visit to Kauai was our first TBL experience. Our goal was to see more of Waimea Canyon. We were hopeful for a good experience and thrilled when we ended up having a great one. Noah is friendly, accessible, and knowledgeable about the terrain, Hawaiian culture, and history. He recounted interesting stories adding his own experiences for a personalized/custom tour. We visited a coffee plantation, sampling a number of varieties. Being enjoyers of great coffee, this was a perfect stop. Excellent

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the sweet review. Had a great day with you guys! Happy travels, aloha and all the best!

We had a fabulous day with Noah exploring the West side of Kauai. He customized a tour to fit the limited time we had available. First stop....malasadas of course....thank you, Noah! Not only is Noah knowledgeable about his island, he is personable, understanding and FUNNY!! - a must when you spend several hours together. He is a GREAT photographer; knows all the best spots for beautiful, memorable photos; and even entertained us with his ukelele and great singing voice. Book him before it is too late!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Claudia! I had a sweet day taking you all around along with some good laughs for sure. Thank you for the sweet treats! Please return soon. Happy travels and aloha

Noah was fantastic! We didn't have a lot of time in Kaua'i and we wanted to see and do as much as we could. Not only was Noah great with responding to emails I sent, he went above and beyond to try to show us what we wanted to see. He basically took us all along the northeastern part of the island. He probably took us to about 11-12 spots on Kaua'i and that wasn't easy in the little time we had...if you'll be in Kaua'i book a tour with Noah...I am so very glad we did!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jason! Thanks for the stellar review! I had a great day with you guys, nice meeting you. Come back sometime! Happy travels and aloha

We had a wonderful tour with Noah. His excellent knowledge of the area and the stories he told made this tour so enjoyable. Although we were not able to walk great distances Noah made sure we did not miss any of the beautiful sights. Many thanks to Noah for a special day. We would highly recommended him to anyone wanting to tour Kauai.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Ingrid! I had a really great time with the two of you today. What a spectacular rainbow we saw this morning. Nice getting to know you guys. Have a great rest of your stay in the Hawaiian islands! All the best

Noah was awesome, he genuinely loves giving tours and takes us to areas both popular and lesser known. We had 2 day tours with Noah. Day 1 had some challenges with rain and wind, Noah adapted our schedule and we got some great pictures with some luck. He would even run ahead of us to see if there were turtles/seals on the beach, so we can spend less time searching! You won't be disappointed with Noah. He even speaks Japaneses if that's helpful for you!

We had a wonderful time with Noah. He was a wealth of knowledge about the island and shared information about the history of the Hawaiian People. He was so patient letting us explore the locations and we did not feel rushed at all. We would recommend him to anyone who wants a wonderful tour of the island. He was a highlight of our trip! Thank you for everything Noah. You are the best!

We LOVED our time with Noah! He was able to answer all of our questions regarding the history and culture of Kauai and took care of so many small details to ensure that we had an enjoyable time... playing the ukulele and singing on the short hiking trail, providing ice cold waters and cookies in the car. He exceeded our expectations in every way. If you are in Kauai, book with him!

The Waimea/South tour was our second with Noah (we also did the North/East tour with him). We gave him 5 stars and praised his knowledge, communication, willingness to accommodate our needs/preferences, and punctuality. The second tour was every bit as first rate as the prior one. We would like to add that we enjoyed his suggestions for lunch and each day he provided several choices. He also provides water and cookies! We want to emphasize that he takes you places the others do not.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks again Howard! Great cruising with you guys! Hope you enjoy the rest of your time on Kauai. Happy travels!

Noah provided a first class guided tour of Kauai North/East. He was punctual, a good communicator, accommodating of our limitations and preferences, and both knowledgeable about the sights we were seeing and good at communicating what made them special. He included many sights that we could not have found on our own. Truly a special day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Howard! You guys had some great stories, some good advice, with quite a few laughs in between. Learned a few things from you both. May there be many more islands to come! All the best

This tour was hands down one of THE most amazing tours we have been on. Noah was knowledgeable & fun. We saw SO much & would not have seen or found these places on our own. Not only did we see waterfalls & beautiful secluded beaches, we went to a lovely vista high above the ocean with breathtaking views. We also stopped at a local farm & had fresh coconut water after Noah opened it with his machete. Our stops at the beach were accompanied by his yukelele. Truly an incredible way to truly see the island.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the stellar review you guys! It was great meeting you both. Wishing you many more great travels in the future. Aloha and all the best!

Noah was an awesome guide for us today. He knew all the best places and times to go and got us safely through the hairpin turns to Waimea even when the clouds were covering the road and there was no visibility! He accommodated our large and age diverse group perfectly. We enjoyed learning from him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Awww jeez- thanks so much for the sweet review Matthew! Wow, it was an adventure up there for sure today! Up in the clouds--- a rare experience. The kids had me laughing all day- pure comedy- I think you have a songwriter/inventor in your midst. You guys have a great family, many blessings. All the best and aloha

Out tour with Noah was fantastic! Noah was very knowledgeable about the island and kept us entertained with stories of the history of the area and the people. He knew just where to look for hidden treasures like the two monk seals we saw sleeping on a beach. We were able to avoid the large crowds that toured on the big buses. An added bonus was Noah playing his Ukulele while we were walking on some trails! Don't hesitate to take this tour with Noah - you won't be disappointed!

We had an excellent time. Noah told us about Hollywood filming on the island (to our surprise, there were many famous movies filmed on Kauai, such as Hook, Pirates of the Carribean, Jurassic Park, King Kong, etc. He took us to a cave, and then to Waimea Canyon. He knew the best lookout spots with amazing views at the majestic Canyon. We went all the way to the top at 5000 feet and saw Na Pali coast. He told us stories about Hawaiian kings and local heroes and showed local plants. He was very accommodating

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the nice review Igor! It was really great meeting you guys. I hope the rest of your trip was excellent. Aloha and happy travels!

What can we say? Well, just take this tour!! Noah is as friendly and fun as he is smart and knowledgeable of everything Hawaiian. We started out with one custom tour and by the end of the day had a completely different one based entirely on what he learned about us. It was great!! He will also entertain you with music and wonderful stories of Hawaiian culture and folklore. By the end of the day it was like taking a mini vacation with a good friend. Thanks Noah!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow, thanks for the kind words and sweet review Chuck! I had a great day with you guys on the pupu tour! Please come back someday! Aloha, mahalo, and all the best!
