We had stumbled across the Na Aina Kai Botanical Gardens on a brochure since it offered reciprocal benefits from our botanical garden back home, so we booked a 1:00 pm tour. (The tour itself, which lasted 90 minutes, would have been $35 each.) We enjoyed the tour immensely...the gardens were beautiful and immaculate, and our tour guide (Sheri) was friendly... More

This was our first Kauai Botanical Gardens tour and it was in August when it was 90+ temp and equally as high humidity even though it was at 9:00 am in the morning. We took the 1 1/2 hour walking tour (which is guided) for $35 per person. The history of where this land came from and how it was... More

What made these gardens special for us was the way the sculptures were integrated into the beautiful gardens. I like to take photos. I found so many picturesque settings.

We have been to all of the amazing botanical gardens on Kauai. We really enjoy visiting them, seeing the amazing beautiful plants, learning about each one, what they are called and where they came from. The beauty and variety is incredible. This place is none of that. It's a pretty setting but pretty boring. Not even close to the other... More

Lucked out and were able to come on Keiki Day (kids day). The kids garden was open and our kids (6 and 2) loved the water play, slides and forts. We will be back for the garden tour next time as this is an amazing garden staffed by people who live what they are doing. Great experience!

We absolutely loved Na Aina Kai and our warm, friendly tour guides. My recommendation is that you call and reserve your tickets well in advance to make sure you can visit this beautiful place. We were in Kauai for 10 days and almost weren't able to get tickets. They must limit the number of visitors because my family didn't see... More

This beautiful garden, near Kilauea, is a hidden treasure. It is a very worthwhile 3 hours to spend in lovely, lush, tropical paradise. We had the pleasure and privilege of having the owner and founder of the garden as our guide. She only does tours a couple times per month so we feel very fortunate. These gardens are heavily weighted... More

My husband and I just took the 5 hour trek tour (which turned into a 6 1/2 hour tour) and loved it! Lisa, the tour guide, was incredibly knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and considerate. The logistics were perfect...lunch waiting for us when we arrived at the beautiful lunch stop, and water and rest rooms conveniently available. Thank you for the best day... More

Christena, our tour guide lead us around the beautiful Na Aina Botanical Gardens on a family tour. We spent 1 hr listening to her stories about the property and the magnificent sculptures and plants/trees. Typically, they have 1 hr in the children's garden area but the tour had kids ages 9-14 so she modified to our delight. With only 2... More
