I’m so excited you’ve decided to join Shaka Guide for a tour of Lihue! Soon, you’ll experience the town of Lihue, as well as its surrounding natural wonders, like Wailua Falls. But, first, I wanted to give you a little bit of logistical information for the Lihue Town tour, as well as a few tips to help you along the way. Please read this information before leaving for your tour.
- Grove Farm requires a separate reservation

What to Expect
Along the Lihue Town tour, we’ll tell you all about the town's history and take a close look at a sugar cane farmer named George Wilcox who helped establish this town in its infancy. We’ll also travel outside town limits to view a spectacular double waterfall.
We call our Lihue Town tour a mini-tour because it should only take about two hours to complete. But those two hours are jam-packed with adventure and stories from history.
There’s a short, one-mile hike, so bring your hiking shoes. Toward the end of the Lihue Town Tour, we’ll stop by Hamura’s for a bowl of delicious saimin, a staple of modern Hawaiian cuisine.
Most of today’s tour stops do not require extra admittance fees, but there are a few places along the way you may choose to stop for extra activites. We’ll list those prices below, so you can start planning your budget.
- Kauai Museum: $15
- Grove Farm: $10
- Hamura Classic Bowl of Saimin: $8

In the Hawaiian language, Malama means “to take care.” Aina means land. So, when you’re exploring Hawaii and you hear the phrase “Malama aina,” that means “take care of the land.” And, that’s not just a saying here in Hawaii. The Hawaiian culture is built on respect for the land and locals and residents of the Island take it seriously. Please remember to help preserve Hawaii's precious natural resources by taking responsibility for yourself and your impact while visiting. The fees for mistreating the land here are no joke, so be sure to pick up your trash and avoid disturbing wildlife.
We hope that we’ve given you all the information you need to make the most of your day. Your vacation is extremely important to us so if you have any questions feel free to reach out at email@example.com.
