We went with Kaua’i ATV Tours. You have to be 16 years old to drive an ATV, but they have other options. My husband drove an ATV, I drove a mud bug (small dune buggy) with my son as passenger. We were in a group of 14, including 2 guides. We drove about 26 miles back into the countryside on privately owned dirt roads and dirt trails through the Haupu Valley, a ½-mile-long tunnel, which was used to transport sugar cane, and on to the Kahili Falls. It was a beautiful trip!
On the way, there we were stopped twice for the guides to share information with us about the area. One of the guides is always taking pictures, which you can purchase on a CD at the end of your trip. You can also take your own water-resistant camera to use.
When you get to the waterfall, you get to swim for about a 1/2 hour, then you are served a delicious sandwich, chips, drink and cookies for lunch. After eating, you can go back into the waterfall for quick dip. The drive back was just as much fun.

Most of the trails are through a old sugar cane plantation on the Ha'upu mountain range. We rode to the final waterfall and had a sandwich lunch which included chips, cookies, and drink (ice tea, pineapple juice, water, or guava juice). We were able to swim in the refreshing pool at the base of the second waterfall. The water was VERY cold but refreshing. We all took turns jumping off the rocks into a 10 feet deep pool of water. The guide would stop often to explain some of Kauai's cultural history and unique plant life.
We rode Kodiak four-wheel ATV's. Our two kids, ages eight & ten, rode in the mud hog. The mud hog was not working very well this particular day as the driver spent more time trying to fix it than driving our kids around. The tours give you clothes to "cover up" with along with helmets and goggles because you will get muddy - red muddy! The guide takes pictures throughout the tour and you can purchase a CD for the cost of $20 at the end of your tour. It is worth it because I would not take a expensive camera on the ride - not sure if it would make it back in one piece. This is good for new riders as well as experienced riders.
I have included some of the pictures off of the picture CD. The check-in Hut is located right behind Old Koloa town. Vist their website at this link.
