Karen Tilley, owner and principal guide
Jay, Karen's husband and a wonderful guide.
He's holding bounty harvested fresh from their farm that gets served on tour.
Kauai Eden Tours was founded in 2010 by Karen Tilley to provide tailor-made, illuminating Kauai excursions and experiences for both visitors and residents alike.
It was from her days as a Kauai Sierra Club Outings Leader in 2001, encouraged by her Outing participants, that Karen decided to be a tour operator.
As someone who seeks out personalized vacation experiences herself, she chose to provide customized tours to people who also value tailor-made tours. A naturalist, plant enthusiast, and photographer, she spends her spare time taking photos of the Kauai's profound beauty. She also loves hiking, and and swimming.
She's a popular singer here and absolutely loves to help people find their own singing voice.
All her chosen local guides are also long time residents and bring their own familiarity and insights of the island, their plant knowledge and their love of Kauai to share.
She and husband, Jay, live above Kapaa amongst an orchard they planted years ago. The fresh fruit snacks likely come from there.
They are committed to protecting the island's natural beauty for generations to come.
