My new husband and I did this on our honeymoon and we had so fun! Our guide, Annalee, was a great guide and person. She was constantly gauging how we were doing and adjusting our ride accordingly. For example, she realized we liked getting information about the surrounding area so she would point out things, but when we got to the waterfall she gave us privacy and took lots of pictures of us having fun. This was so much fun and I would highly recommend this to anyone!

We ride alot on vacations so it takes a lot of us to be overly impressed. Well, this one is a good one to go on for sure. P...lanning for this trip - you will want, SWIMSUIT under your clothes, blue jeans ( I would advise stretch or baggy for comfort), tennis shoes work best as you will be hiking (don't do this in boots seriously!) maybe a hat, sun glasses, towel and a camera!!! And it may rain on you but, hey its Kauai and you will dry off fast. Plus they have rain gear for you. So where do you put all this? Guides have saddle bags for that. They will feed you so no food is needed. They have water too. First nice staff, their instructions on how to get to the ranch could be a wee bit better. HINT bascially if you driving north to the check in point, you will drive back the way to came a mile or so and it will on your right (driving south). Its not just across the road like they told us :) Now, to the ride! They matched each person up with the horse that would be b more

Peggy - World Traveler

beautiful and fun

just great

An unforgettable experience does not even being to describe this tour. I still can't believe how immense and beautiful this ...ranch and Kauai are. Traveling on horseback allows you to access places you would not be able to see from a car, and it is also a unique way to take a tour. At the end of the horseback tour we took a dip in the waterfall pool. The pool was refreshing and gorgeous. more

Mr. Anonymous

So much fun. We took the waterfall horseback adventure for my daughter's 8th birthday. Our guide Bella was super friendly and... helpful and it was absolutely magical. more

Evan

Had a fantastic time! Our guide was superb - wish I could remember her name! She was very knowledgeable of the island and very c...aring about how everyone was riding. This is perfect, if you are a beginner. My hubby, who is experienced, did not enjoy the horseback riding; however, he did enjoy the hike and walk over the waterfall! more

PATravelGal

Lucie was a wonderful guide! The ranch is a beautiful place to ride through and the waterfall swim was very refreshing. Even my bo...yfriend who doesn't ride enjoyed it! Planning to go back on a private ride to see more of this beautiful place. more

RLO

This horseback ride to the waterfall hike was AMAZING! The guide was a huge part of that, Ulysses was fantastic. Very professional..., knowledgeable, helpful, funny and all around great person to put your trust into for 4 hours! The horses were great, the ride was beyond amazing, you see sights that are just breathtaking, the hike to the waterfall was an entrance to a world you must see while on the island. Just breathtaking. I am a beginner horseback rider and there were more experiences riders but I felt just as comfortable and enjoyed myself. The entire process was really customer service friendly. more

Thirteen years ago I proposed to my wife on this very same adventure. It was a great adventure then and it was even better this t...ime around. My wife and I brought our nine year old daughter with us and she enjoyed every bit of it. Our adventure guide Vance made it a very memorable ride. He was perfect. Very knowledgeable of the area because he was a "local kanaka" and courteous. Great time by all! more

Jaybird

We've done this ride twice. The scenery is pretty and the horses are well trained. I'm an experienced rider & my hus...band & daughter are beginners & we all had a nice time. The only unpredictable thing of course is the weather. The first time was great, the second time was a bit rainy & the water near the waterfall was quite cold. We had excellent guides both times. more

Albuquerque RN

You can't go wrong here. Start with a beautiful ranch with mountain vistas and lush meadows and forests, add a very knowledge...able and fun guide, stir in great horses that behave but have spunk, sprinkle a little hike through the forest and top with a swim in a beautiful waterfall pool. A great way to spend a few hours on Kauai! more

Dr. Bob

This was the highlight of the trip, horseback is the only way to see some of Hawaii's beauty. The waterfall picnic lunch whic...h involved horseback riding, hiking and swimming under the waterfall...excellent. Thank you Will more

J. Kehler

This was a wonderful activity. I wish we had known that it was billed as a walk-only ride as my family were all intermediate rider...s and we were the only customers at this time. The guide was terrific, the scenary beautiful and the little things the guide pointed out were wonderful. The Falls are a real treat!!! more

Leonard

Had a wonderful time on this adventure. Both our experience daughter and unexperienced mom were able to participate and enjoy. The... lunch was basic but good. Views were fantastic. Waterfall pretty and refreshing to swim in after the ride. Our guide (AnnaLee) was very knowledgeable and clearly loved the horses and her job and set us all at ease - great smile too!! My only possible suggestion would be that it had rained recently and was quite muddy near the picnic area. Really no place to sit and eat. Although it's a little remote, it would be nice if there was a simple bench or two. You definitely want to be somewhat active because the hike down to the waterfall was absolutely fine for us because we walk and hike regularly, but might be a challenge for someone who is less physically fit. more

guess review

Such a fun afternoon with this outing. Very fun!

S & T

We had no warning that the hike was moderate or that there was a rock wall climb in thevmiddlenof the hike! Also, the hime is all... down hill pn large steps! Be prepared! more
