Had a great time. We chose to do the train ride, hike, lunch and pick and eat fruit tour. The property is so large, we were able to feed the pigs, goats, roosters and chickens. That was really fun. Our hike was adventurous. So many different trees, so many different flowers. Our tour guide, "Tiny" was full of knowledge. He's... More

This was part of a longer tour booked for us by Princess Cruises. I thought the location was one of the prettiest places on earth! The Plantation is in a broad valley surrounded by mountains. The lush vegetation is gorgeous. My adult son and I wished we had a closer tour of the orchards as we are quite interested in... More

Took our 4 and 6 year old boys on this tour. our guide, Josh (Tiny) was very friendly and knowledgable about the old sugar plantation and all the plants along the way. The break to feed the animals after lunch was a fun diversion. The highlight was the orchard tour to sample all the in season fruits on the farm,... More

A pleasant ride around an old sugar plantation. Interesting narration with island history. Lots of shops and a restaurant on site too. Don't forget the chickens and wild hogs!

We booked their luau and our particular booking included the train ride around the property|! We enjoyed the train ride very much even though it was later in the day when the sun... More

We rely enjoyed going on the train. It takes you around the property where you can admire the landscape but also learn about all their production. They have a lot of different tropical fruit trees and it was very interesting to see and learn about them. The train also stopped for us to feed the pigs and the wild chicken.... More

We've taken the kids here a few times now and it never gets boring. The open air train takes you on a 40 minute ride around the perimeter of the historic plantation while giving you a narration. The train stops at some of the plantation animals (pigs, chickens, etc.) and provides bread so the kids can feed them. On a... More

While driving through Lihue on March 24, we spied the Kilohana plantation and decided to stop. We bought tickets for the train ride, but not for the tour. Military discount is available provided you qualify. It was fun and relaxing. About ½ way through the train trip, they stop to let you feed the pigs and goats. If you have... More

The train ride goes around an old sugar cane plantation. An added excursion includes a walk into the jungle to see beautiful trees and flowers. A lunch is provided on the tour with an excursion into the fruit orchards where samples are picked off of the many trees.

I took the 40 minute tour. Great for solo travelers or couples, but as someone wrote, maybe not the best place to keep a restless child interested. I however loved it, you learn so much about the history of the plantation and learn about the the different trees and animals. There is a stop to feed the pigs and goats... More
