We really enjoyed this ride. It was a very nice ride with a good guide who told us about the sugar cane industry which used to be the primary crop of Kauai. The grounds at the Kilohana & Kauai Plantaion were very pretty too. We enjoyed the ride!

The train ride was short, and part of the time on the train tour was a stop to feed animals. However, it was a pleasant ride and fun to learn some of the plantation history of Hawaii. It was fun to see pineapples growing. It is a nice way to spend a couple of hours, but I wouldn't say it... More

The train ride around the estate and the feeding of the animals was fun. Nice time to spend with the family if your not at the beach.

If you have someone that likes trains .... then this is a good stop for you. They do have some intriguing old memorabilia there and some very cute coconut post cards that are unique gifts. Beautiful place, but all of Hawaii is.

The tour takes one around many gardens with classic Hawaiian foods like pineapple plants. The wild pig feeding was fun to watch.

This was a great way to take a break from the beach and learn about the animals and plants growing on Kaui very interesting. My son was a little scarred of ghetto pigs because they were fighting over the food when we fed them :)

This is a great train ride around a beautiful estate. There is a lot of local history associated with the plantation. Make sure to reserve your tasting time at the Koloa Rum store when you return from the train ride.

We enjoyed our recent visit to the Kauai Plantation Railway. We wrote an email asking for information and reservations for the train ride, and Pepe responded promptly will all the information we needed, including 15% off our train ride for just inquiring. Our son, who is 20 months old loves trains and enjoyed the ride so much. Our guide, Tiny,... More

This tour on the railroad was the highlight of my grand children's Hawaiian trip. I loved riding the train and seeing how pineapples are grown. I loved the grounds and the tour guide was very funny. However, the train stops and lets the children feed the wild bores. They saw the baby pigs and fed the big pigs. My six-year-old... More
