We had a wonderful time with Kate. She is very knowledgeable about the culture and history of her beloved island. She found local culinary treats and local shops for us that were delightful to discover. Kate's culinary and shopping tour was just fun!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Jane! I really enjoyed our time together. A hui hou!

Peter RileyUnited States
Kate is a simply fantastic guide. She is smart, knowledgable,friendly and knows every inch of Kauai. She made sure our tour fit our interests exactly and took us to places we're sure few tourists see-and told us of the history of the Island as well as all about its ecosystem. If you come to Kauai I promise time with Kate will be well worth your while and when you're done you'll know, as we do, that your trip was made infinitely better for having met and toured with her and shared her love of Kauai.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Warmest mahalo to the Riley family for this great review. It was a pleasure meeting you both, thank you for being up for the adventure!

What an amazing tour. Kate curated a stunning day for us, from some great food to fascinating ohana/local farm tours. We had some specific interests that are a bit off the beaten path (aqua farming) and Kate was able to coordinate with local farms that provided us with insight into the history and future of Kauai farming. Brava to Kate - we look forward to returning!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Pj, thank you so much for this review, and for your interest in exploring Kauai in a unique way. We all really enjoyed having you here and send out a fond a hui hou!
Roger DanzigerUnited States
We had an awesome 4 hour tour with Kate!! She was professional, knowledgeable, enthusiastic and very friendly. She took us snorkeling, shopping, to two waterfalls and we also got fresh fruit and AWESOME shaved ice. She did a superior job of mapping out our 1/2 day together. We'd definitely have her as our guide again and again when we return to Kauai !!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mahalo Roger! It was a pleasure spending the day with you and your family. I hope you will come back again we have another snorkel in our future! Mahalo for your kind review.

Karen OlsenUnited States
We highly recommend Kate. My family and I had two days with Kate and we snorkeled for the first time. She was great about helping us learn about the area, tips with our snorkel gear and we had a blast. The beach that she chose was amazing and it will be a great memory that will stay with us! Many thanks Kate!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mahalo Karen! It was a pleasure meeting you all please look me up when you come back we will snorkel again!
Karen OlsenUnited States
Kate was amazing!!! I highly recommend having Kate be your tour guide. There is so much to see and do on the Island and the experience you have with Kate makes it so much more enjoyable. My family and I really saw and experienced places that we normally would not have ventured to because of Kate. She is very knowledgeable about the island, the "off the beaten path" areas, the food, culture, economics and so much more. She really made our trip so much more enjoyable. The waterfalls were amazing!
Barry KaneUnited States
Kare was excellent. Due to inclement weather, we made some changes on the fly - and she made sure that my family got the most out of our time. I would highly recommend her. Based on this initial experience with tours by locals, we intend to use them for our 2020 planned trips
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for this review! Mahalo for choosing to spend the day with me I enjoyed meeting you all!
Randall HartzellUnited States
We didn't get to hike as we thought we were going to because it rained the day we had scheduled, but Kate was a hostess for us nonetheless. She was an awesome guide and we still drove up the mountain and learned a lot educationally about the local history. We were disappointed about no hike but still had a great time. She was awesome!
Elliott Dale RiceUnited States
Kate was a terrific guide. Very knowledgeable about the island. Outgoing and fun to be with. She also went the extra mile when I injured my hand in a fall during a hike. She deserves 10 stars.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow Mahalo Rice family! A hui hou.
Jean RoanUnited States

Michelle ClyborneUnited States
Kate did an amazing job organizing my tour. She conveniently picked me up at my hotel for a morning of hiking, sharing all sorts of interesting details about Kaui. She is a long time local, super knowledgeable, punctual, and fun. I had some special goals and she helped me. I would use her services again in a heart beat. She was delightful full of energy. It was a fabulous morning of hiking, learning about flora and fauna, culture, etc. I Highly recommend Kate!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Michelle! It was a great morning hike, and I wish you good fortune in your upcoming adventures.
Walter BragoniUnited States
The tour was excellent. Kate was very knowledgeable of the environment. What really made the trip was how she spent the time with my wife getting her to be comfortable with the water. My wife had not snorkel for some time and Kate patience and presence got my wife to snorkel. We were able to see all types of fish and even a sea turtle. In the 4 hours we spent it was well worth the trip. Thanks Kate.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mahalo Walter and Bragoni family!
Sarah FeugillArlington, VA, United States
We hired Kate to be our guide for a true off the beaten path adventure. She customized our tour based on our pre-planning email conversations, which was very helpful. She is a wealth of knowledge and can translate your wants into once in a lifetime experiences. She customizes the tour based on the weather, which changes hour by hour in Kauai. We wanted hidden Hawaiian gems and boy did she deliver. We spent the day hiking and swimming in hidden waterfalls. She has a vast knowledge of all natural things.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow Sarah, thanks that means a lot! Lets please keep in touch!
Kate was exceptional. Her knowledge of the island, it's history, wildlife and plant life was impressive. She was very flexible and had great recommendations of things to stop and see along the route. She was enthusiastic, very energetic and passionate about life on the island. We took her suggestion to go and get lunch at the fish market and then picnic at the park. The fresh seafood was phenomenal. She truly embodies the spirit of ALOHA.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mahalo Joe! It was a great day. If I'm in the neighborhood I surely will look you up. A hui hou!
John PalmerUnited States
