Gluten free boxed lunch on this ATV tour of Kauai,

This tour was the highlight of the trip for me personally. It was a half-day tour where we got to drive ATVs through a privately-owned cattle ranch and rain forest on Kauai. It gave us a chance to see areas of the island otherwise inaccessible to the public, and we encountered wildlife (chickens, wild pigs, and peacocks) and gorgeous scenery. The mountains, valleys, and jungle are very versatile in terms of providing natural backdrops in many movies. We saw numerous sites used in movies from Indiana Jones to Jurassic Park to Outbreak. We even got to swing on the rope swing used in Raiders of the Lost Ark – and landed in the river (a bit cold in December when we were there, but totally worth the experience!). We also had a picnic lunch and then stopped to see two waterfalls, one of which fed a freshwater pool we got to swim in (also cold but worth it!). Apparently, in the summer months it is a welcome cooling after being out riding ATVs in the heat. I am reviewing this tour because it includes lunch, and they were able to request a gluten free lunch for our son. Even though they couldn’t verify whether the cold cuts (turkey and salami) provided in the make-your-own sandwich buffet were gluten free or not, there was cheese, and they provided gluten free sandwich bread (wrapped carefully in a separate box), a salad, and fresh fruit. Our son had also packed some gluten free snacks as a back-up, but he didn’t really need it. Besides, it was only a half-day tour and was wrapped up by 11:30 or 12:00 (started at 8 am). You need to get yourself to the location on Kipu Ranch where the tours start; the company doesn’t pick you up. Therefore, you need to have a rental car (we didn’t) or take a taxi or Uber (which we found not terribly reliable). We took a taxi, but it's best to arrange those the night before if you can. We needed two for our group and had a hard time getting the second one in the morning. Part of our group barely made it there in time for the tour. We were staying in Lihue, and it was just about 15 minutes from our resort. Despited the transportation snafus getting to the ranch, I'd highly recommend doing a tour with this company! I'm rating them a 4.5, which is more for the experience and overall quality of the picnic lunch, not necessarily for the GF lunch, per se (although adequate). Our guides, Justin and Robert, were great fun!
