Mr. Anonymous

We had such a great time during this trip. Matt was super friendly and considerate. He stopped by little stores for us and told ...us great stories about the island, and island life. The hike was easy, and had a great view. Also, the kayaking experiance was a lot of fun! We got to kayak onto China Man's Hat Island and had the whole place to ourselves! Matt was a great guide, and helped to make the day a special one! Thanks Matt!! We would definatly recomned this this activitey. more

April

matt was our driver/tour guide. gorgeous views of kualoa ranch and the ocean. matt was knowledgeable and very personable as a grea...t tour guide should be. more

Mr. Anonymous

Our kayak trip was great. It made us feel adventurouse without working too hard for the fun. There were beautiful surroundings and... the instructor was alot of fun and told us many stories about the island that were great. We would difinately do it again. Thank you so much guys! more

Veronica and Kevin

This was fantastic! Jeremy was our guide and he was awesome. It could not have been any better. We had a great time and I would ...recommend that this is a must do adventure. So worth the money and Jeremy was the coolest guy and perfect guide. Took our pictures for us, educated us on the different plants, history of the ranch and mountains, explained how to kayak and did not make us feel awkward since I did not know how to do it. Best excursion and we were lucky to find it and have Jeremy as our guide. more

Carol Lopez

Wifey picked this adventure out and I am glad she did. She's in shape and I am not, yet I still had a blast. Not too much wor...k was the price for great views, an easy hike, just the right amount of kayaking and snorkeling with the fishies. Mattias and Blair were the perfect guides with lots of knowledge, easy demeanor, great island tips and enthusiasm. Hell, they even showed most of the folks in our group how to use the *fancy* features of our cameras! Would absolutely do this again. more

Jeff

Jeremy was great. Great tour guide, and knows a lot about the local culture. He was also very flexible, and altered the tour to ac...commodate what we wanted to do. Would recommend very highly. more

Bruce E

Our tour was soo much fun!! The views are incredible!! I would recommend this tour for everyone except families with young childre...n. The hike is not bad, but the kayaking and snorkeling can be difficult for younger children. Also make sure that you wear plenty of sunblock, out of my whole trip this is were I got the most sunburnt. more

Visited with 2 other couples. Been annually cruising to HI for several years now. This was the most fun ever on Oahu. Our guide, J...eremy, was terrific; knowledgeable, took good care of us. Lunch was delicious sandwiches. We're fairly active, in our 60's. Hike, kayak, and snorkeling was an easy activity. This happened last year and we still talk about how much fun it was. Using Veltra again for our upcoming trip and planning to visit the ranch again. more

Annual HI Visitor

My 12 year old son and I had a fantastic time. I highly recommend this activity. It was by far in our top 2 out of all the activit...ies we did. You will get a great glimpse of Hawaii's beauty and some great stories of Hawaii. Matt, our guide was great at telling us interesting stories behind some of the landmarks of Hawaii, he was amazing with my son, and did a great job at choosing activities based on our groups capabilities. I loved the small group numbers! I recommend wearing tennis shoes or a closed toe shoe when walking around the island that you will kayak out to. Overall, I give this outing easily 5 stars and recommend it to anyone that enjoys getting out and away from the hectic city and other tours. more

Shannon

This was better than I could have ever imagined! As someone traveling to the island without a game plan I stumbled on this tour; ...it ended up being a fantastic excursion where we got to experience a bit of everything. After hiking you kayak to a beautiful small island- although tiring it was not extraordinarily strenuous. Our tour guide was great- he was knowledgable about everywhere we visited and gave us histories on both the locations as well as Hawaii overall. I highly recommend this trip. more

EHL

Had a great day on tour with Terry as our guide. The walk is gentle but great views from the lookout. Kayaking and snorkelling wer...e great fun. Highly recommend more

Cam

I don't want to ramble on but but I would like to say what a truly lovely and genuine person Brooke is. There was no falsenes...s, just a genuine love for her job and the people in her care. We were fortunate to paddle amongst turtles and share the waves with them as we approached Mokoli'i, then to snorkel with the fish and a little exploration of the Island, made for the perfect day. The lunch was fabulous too, fresh and tasty with more than enough to fuel our return to the beach. In summary, an amazing experience with an extremely capable and informative guide. Thanks you for sharing Brooke with us. Regards, Belinda & Jason Ps. I'm sure she wore us out as she knew we would compete against each other in the Dragonboat race the following weekend. Great win Brooke x more

Belinda Squires

We had an amazing time at our hike, kayak & snorkel adventure! We were picked up at our hotel by Rodof and as we drove to our ...destination he shared about the history of Hawaii. Once we arrived at Kualoa Ranch, we started our hike, then we went kayaking after that and it was just amazing!! Both Rodof and Christen were awesome guides. They gave us a quick lesson on kayaking and they we kayaked to the next island. It was so much fun!! totally recommend trying this excursion!! more

N family

Very good value combo for the money!!! I enjoyed the entire experience. Our guide was very pleasant and outgoing. The hike was a... little harder than anticipated but the view was worth it. Only negative I would comment upon was little snorkeling instruction given. I would definitely not recommend this trip for families with children under 12 but highly recommend for couples or groups. Absolute beautiful waters and views! more

Mr. Anonymous

The view from the hike was stunning and the kayaking was fun. Didn't see much fish while snorkeling but was interesting.

Richard Baker

We enjoyed our guide and the experience. The hike at the ranch was great but we would have loved it to be longer. The kayaking w...as awesome we went out to the china mans hat and then snorkeled. The snorkeling there was good but did not see a lot of fish. The experience was great but we had one guide and he was responsible for getting everything ready to go and clean everything up afterwards. I feel the preparation and clean up took time away from either hiking more or snorkeling more. If the kayaks were set up before hand and another guide put them back in the container after cleaning it all I think we would have had more time to enjoy our experience. more

Barry

Fun activity, the weather was rough, big waves ( 3-5 ft. ) made kayaking and snorkeling hard. I am 60 and I don't slither ba...ck into a kayak once it rolls. Cool way to see an island I have looked at for many many years from shore. more

J. W. Martin

We had an a great time..the view from the hike was beautiful. Kayaking was so much fun. It was our first time and we tipped over.....lol. Teri was a great Guide and managed to guides us back up and be on our way... more

Adriana

There was not much to the hike. Basically a five-minute trek to a nice panoramic of the ocean. Guy talked to us for a while before... heading back to kayak to an island off the coast. That was fun, but once we got to the island to snorkel there wasn't much to look at in terms of fish. Our guide was nice, but we did a hike the day before with a gentleman who had a much more extensive knowledge of the island. I feel this excursion should be valued closer to $75 instead of $110. more

Scott

Hike was a short stroll but a lovely outlook. Kayak was great and got to blow out the cobwebs after a long flight. Snorkel gear wa...sn't even taken. Gave the company my feedback but they didn't bother to reply. Too expensive for a simple kayak. more

Kerri B

the weather was really poor, raining and strong winds which was out of their control of course but it prob should have been cancel...led. the hike was underwhelming because of the cloud cover so could not see the beautiful views. I really enjoyed kayaking. I like a bit of adventure so the strong current was just a fun challenge for me but some of the group struggled quite a bit. highly recommend requesting a single kayak, so much more fun! they cancelled the snorkel because it was dangerous conditions. but they did take us around kualoa ranch at the end to save it. the equipment provided was good quality and the staff were great! I was a little disappointed that I didn't get exactly what I paid for but I had an awesome day!!!! despite the weather and I would deff give 5 stars if it were different circumstances. more
