My husband and I honeymooned on Kauai, and joining Kipu Ranch Adventures for an ATV tour was at the top of my list. We're SO glad that we booked a tour with them and got to adventure in beautiful Kauai! Our tour guides, "Giggles" and Kyle, were fun, knowledgeable, and safety-minded. Our original tour was scheduled in the morning but due to heavy rains and flash flood warnings, we were rescheduled ... moreto an afternoon time. The staff was more than kind and courteous. By the time our afternoon tour rolled around, it was like a different day; beautiful, clear blue skies and plenty of mud and puddles to drive through! Giggles and Kyle were mindful of safety while still allowing for plenty of fun. They were generous with their knowledge of the area, plants, and Hawaiin history. My husband and I had a wonderful time and would say it was definitely a highlight of our trip! Mahalo to Kipu Ranch Adventures! We hope to return to the island in the near future and will definitely be back to Kipu Ranch when we do!
My husband talked me into this adventure, and I am sooooo happy that he did! It was truly a bucket list adventure and the guides deserve all the credit! James & Troy made the tour so much fun, adventurous, and informative. I had been on ATV tours in the past, and typically it's just riding--this was off-roading with a chance to see parts of Kauai that we would have never known existed! It was amazing, ... moreI would recommend to ALL ages, all types of people, everyone. Don't forget to leave James & Troy a tip at the end of your tour-they go above and beyond their job description!! Keep it up guys!
If I could give this place a 100 out of 5 star's I would this place is so f****ing amazing!!!!! Words cannot describe the beauty in this place not to mention super friendly staff who all deserve a massive raise for all they do.....mark by the way is the greatest tour guide ever makes ur day from being super informative to keeping ur day humorous....love him!! We will be back!!! Keep up the amazing ... morework guys!!
This is worth every penny and much more! Rich and James we're our tour guides, and they were so awesome! We were lucky to have only 6 people on our tour, so we got to spend a lot of time learning all kinds of things. This tour was not only fun, it was pretty educational too; you'll learn a lot about Kauai and the ranch. I'd recommend this to everyone that visits Kauai!
Kipu Ranch was awesome. Giggles and Rich were great tour guides along with other staff. Get the early morning tour if you can. If its your first time to the island I would recommend doing the early tour and ask for Giggles and Rich. They are very knowledgeable and fun to chat with. If I ever do come back to this wonderful Island again Kipu Ranch will be my first activity.
