This was by far the worst experience we have had on Kauai. First of all, they only supplied 1 guide for 13 guests. Our guide Alex was constantly yelling rudely at all of the guests and seemed genuinely angry to be there. We were required...More

We booked the private tour with a guide, so all the equipment were provided. Sorry I didn't remember how much it was.
