I never thought we would hire a hiking guide to take Mike and I out, however sometimes you have to do the responsible thing and be safe out on the trails. While in Kauai we wanted to see Kauai in its natural beauty, not beaten down touristy hikes (which are still beautiful, just crowded). How could we do this in a safe and responsible way? Give in and hire a guide. We lucked out by finding Eric of Hike Kauai With Me.
