Tour suggestions..

Doing 4 nights on Kauai as part of a 12 night trip including Oahu and the BI. We're non-drivers here and just want to get an unrushed flavour of the island.

Will take a helo/fixed wing tour to see Napali Coast etc and then spend one full day relaxing, so looking for suggestions for one other daytime or evening tour, i.e. the best of the best, so to speak! We'll be based out of Kapaa.

One option may be a Roberts Tour since you will not have a car:

If you are photographers, amateur orotherwise, try the Kauai Phot Tour. It leaves from Kapaa. It's a great tourto see some spots you would miss just staying on the road. We did the hiking tour. there are some steep and slippery hikes but nothing too strenuous.

I agree with onesassymom - the zipline trek with Outfitters was the highlight of out trip. We did the Nui Loa trip.

From what I have heard from guests of mine, Karen's Tour is wonderful for non photographers too. You can hike and go to hidden spots.

Since you are staying in Kapaa, you could take a taxi to Smith's Luau.

Wow! Thanks for the quick replies, lots of food for thought there. The photo tours look particularly interesting, we're big photographers.

We were there in early March and did our helicopter tour with Mauna Loa. We paid a little more (like maybe $20 or $25 per person), and we were the only passengers in the 4-seater helicopter. Just couldn't see spending that kind of money and taking a chance at not getting a window seat!

The tour was fabulous - would do it again in a heartbeat!

(DH is a fixed-wing pilot with some rotor experience and he felt comfortable with the whole outfit - that helps a lot!!)
