Kauai Rainbow Tours, LLC
Your time here should be as unique as you are. With a small tour company, I can individualize your tour to match your interests and schedule. I create opportunities for you that no other tour company provides, bringing you intimate connections with the island, the culture, the history and the people of Kauai.
Kauai Rainbow Tours is focused on small groups, typically 1-4 people, up to a maximum of 7. Tours start and end at your hotel, condo or rental home. Tour times are customized to your needs as well, ranging from 3 to 8 hours, depending on where you want to go and distances between. Refreshments or meals can also be customized: beverages and snacks, a picnic on the beach, local grinds (food), or a fine dining experience.
Planning your tour in advance allows for greater possibilities and opportunities. In some cases, weather can play a factor in our plans, and flexibility may be necessary to make the most of your time. Also, please advise me of any special needs or mobility issues in advance so that we can plan appropriately for you.
Here is a sampling of some of the places we can go and things you can experience. Your tour is always flexible as we explore the island.
Kauai has 50 miles of white sand beaches, each with its own distinct personalities and characteristics. We can find you a wonderful snorkeling spot and provide a picnic lunch and beverages. Prefer a secluded spot with endless ocean views? How about a morning beach adventure followed by lunch at an island restaurant? Perhaps sink your toes into the sand as you watch the sun set into the Pacific with a glass of wine in hand. Mix or match. We'll set up the perfect beach experience for you.
Take in the extraordinary views of Waimea Canyon, the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific,” with its dramatic red mountain ranges and stunning waterfalls. Continue onto Kauai’s rainforest at 4,400 foot elevation, culminating in the breathtaking Kalalau Lookout.
Kauai has a rich culture and history that can be experienced in a multitude of ways, from a tour of Kauai Museum, driving through actual sugar plantation “camps,” taking a peek at a now-defunct sugar mill, strolling through Koloa town, where the first successful sugar plantation was founded, art walks through various towns. Meet with local musicians, as available.
Kauai is nicknamed “The Garden Island” for good reason. Tour nationally-renowned botanical gardens, including one that was architecturally designed and has been the backdrop for many movies. There you can learn the history of plants that were brought by Polynesians by canoe more than a thousand years ago.
Experience Kauai-made products including a chocolate factory, the largest coffee plantation in the United States, iconic Kauai dirt-dyed T-shirts, a microbrewery, gourmet salts, a cookie factory, pie baker and the manufacturer of specialty jams, jellies and other goodies from the lilikoi or passion fruit.
We’ll take you to popular sights, such as the Waimea Canyon and the Kalalau Lookout, Tunnel of Trees, Menehune Fishpond and Hanalei Bay. Along the way we’ll teach you about island culture and history. We’ll also take you to a few special places known only to island locals.
(Some offerings are dependent upon weather and availability.)
Pricing normally begins at $60 per hour for 1 to 4 people; $100 per hour for 5 to 7 people.
You'll enjoy the island in the comfort of an all-wheel drive Subaru. We can conveniently pick you up at your accomodations, and drop you off wherever you wish at the end of your tour. Amenities such as a special occasion lei greeting, picnic lunch or beach chairs and towels are are available for an additional fee.
Payment is easy and convenient: Cash, credit card or Venmo.
Don and I had Randy for our day on Kauai. It truly was a fantastic day. Randy met us at our cruise ship, right on time and even had a welcome gift for us. His knowledge of the island is only surpassed by his passion to share information on such a beautiful island. During our reservation process he asked what we were interested in and he delivered. He also had extra stops planned out if we were interested. Even though he kind of had a day planned he made it clear that this was our time and if we wanted to do anything else we were able. If you are heading to Kauai, either for a limited day stop from a cruise ship of you are there for several days please connect with Randy.

What a wonderful tour we had - 5 hours of immersion into the beauty of Kauai. We were guided by the expert guidance of Randy through Waimea Canyon, Hanapepe, Poipu, and then another brief tour to the north. Fantastic! You couldn't ask for a better tour or guide.

We feel so lucky we found randy!! He is a naturally caring person and knows all the great spots on the island. Waimea canyon in late afternoon was incredible. Randy also picked us up at 5am so we could hike up the sleeping giant to watch the sunrise. We also hiked the Kalalau trail to the end camped one night and hiked back. Randy also dropped us off at 6 am. My daughter hiked faster than me so she made it back first. Randy waited with her for me. (Who does that?) Randy is a rock star and we feel lucky to have met him.

I highly recommend Randy and his tours to visiting friends and family. Randy is a rare and wonderful person, and you'd be lucky to spend the day with him as your guide.
