Our trips to Kauai wouldn't be complete without a ride on the Kauai Plantation Railway. We will going on our fourth when we return in February. We enjoy the ride itself in these old railway cars as well as the information given by the guide. Each year we learn something new. Although we enjoy the trees and plants, the highlight,... More

We took the train ride and feed the pigs. Then Tiny took us into the woods, this was okay. We had lunch ant then headed to the orchard to sample various fruit. This was the highlight.

We really enjoyed our short train ride through some beautiful orchards hosting many different fruit trees, and it was fun to feed the pigs, goats, and donkeys. Maybe this place is one of those times you just suck it up and realize that vacation is expensive but $80+ for five of us to ride for 30 minutes makes it so... More

Took the 40min train ride with the family and had a great time. Our guide have a solid narration thoughout the trip and the kids loved feeding the animals midway thru the train ride. Great time!

The train ride was a good way to easily see the plantation grounds while they narrated what we were seeing. A pit stop at the pig pen was enjoyable, since we got to throw bread over the fence for them to fight over. The nature walk was OK, we did get to get up close to some plants and flowers... More

Yesterday my family (2 adults, 2 teens, 3 kids) did the 4-hour train tour. I have to admit that until we got to the orchard I was very less than impressed. When I checked in, the lady at the counter asked what we wanted for the lunch, the turkey wrap or the green salad. She couldn’t tell me what was... More

The Plantation is worth the visit. The train ride was interesting. You get to see all of the produce they grow on the plantation and see the wild pigs. They stop and give you a bunch of bread to feed them. My girls really enjoy it (5yrs & &yrs). The Plantation has a great restaurant (a little pricey but good)... More

Perfect little train ride for children. Beautiful grounds. Great spot to picnic in the grass. Worth a stop.

We throughly enjoyed the 50 minute trip, we learnt so many details about the plants and how the plantation used to be. It was all made very interesting by the commentator. It was lovely to watch the young children's faces when they got to see all the animals and particularly the baby pigs. There were some good photo opportunities and... More
