    This was an amazing experience! Our tour guide, Susan, has lived on Kauai for decades and was very generous in sharing information. Not only on the places we visited, but Kauai in general, especially restaurants. We have a new appreciation for Kombucha - delicious, not the vinegary stuff I've had in the past. I never would have tried Saiman unless I went on the tour, it was a delicious experience. The mahi mahi burger and beef burger were sooooo delicious, and the Shave ice was one of the best. Tour was very well organized and smoothly run. DO take this tour, and arrive hungry! Definitely something we'll do again!

We booked the standard seating area at this luau. The stage for the show is in the middle with the tables surrounding it. Therefore there is no bad seating. The food is buffet style serving the different seating areas as called. There is an open bar and entertainment at all times with the main show starting after dinner.

Wonderful experience! Food plentiful and very tasty. The hula dancing was exceptional and a very theatrical production. Highly recommend!

It was an amazing experience! The food was phenomenal and the show was even better.
