I have never been to the grand canyon and if is anything like this I hope to go someday because this was amazing. The vast beauty and colors along with the waterfalls was well worth the drive. Don't miss this one .

This place is as beautiful and marvellous as the real Grand Canyon. It is filled with colours and life. A must visit when in Kauai.

We also took a helicopter trip and that was an amazing way to see the canyon and the entire island. We really enjoyed Greg on Blue Hawaiian Helicopter tour.
