I wish the tram ride started when they opened. We got there at 9 am and the tram doesn't start until 10 am. We shopped in the store and wandered around a bit. We liked the ducks and the banana trees. It was convenient to the airport.

Tram ride around the plantation was informative and the plants are all close so you can really get a good look at them. Nice little store with a great variety of items to look at. There are also some small shops inside - glassblower, jeweler, art gallery.

I quite enjoyed my time at this attraction. It wasn't busy which was a bonus. The tram tour lasted about 45 minutes and our guide was excellent. The tram is fun, educational and well worth the $15.00 fee. You can also enjoy walking around, shopping, ziplining or having an ice cream cone. It will be nice to have the restaurant... More

The Maui Tropical Plantation has been on the same site for many years. New owners have been reviving the property and the results are encouraging. The gift shop is quite large and contains food items, coffees, nick nacks and typical Maui souvenirs. The property is lovely and small buildings now house a soap factory, gift store with a few clothing... More

I've often stopped at the store, but never spent time here or took the tram tour. This time, I did just that. My sister and I spent a few hours here, rode the tram, had lunch, shopped... It's nothing exciting, but it was educational. I especially enjoyed the identification of the tropical plants on the tram ride. The absolute best... More

Never found the Tropical Plantation worth the time. Wow! what a change. Plants look healthy, pathways are easy to navigate, plants are labeled, ( although I would like more information as sometimes you have to guess which ones are which) . There are antique cars for those who are bored with the flowers, a local fellow carving tiki's, many local... More

This is a working plantation that is open to the public seven days a week. You can walk around the lush, tropical gardens but to see the different crops they grow you have to take a guided tour on the tram. The tram costs $15 for adults and I think $6 for children. The guide describes different varieties of crop... More

We visited the Maui Tropical Plantation on an overcast day as something to do instead of the beach. It was very pretty to walk around and see the different plants and flowers. We decided not to go on the tour only because we were trying to just have a relaxing vacation with very little tourist type things. We enjoyed walking... More

I had never been to Hawaii, so the tour around the plantation was informative and relaxing. There wasn't a whole lot to see, but it was fun to see how papaya and other tropical fruit is grown. They we still working on parts of the plantation when we were there, so it will be good to go back when we... More

This destination offers something for everyone. Frankly, the plantation itself seems most popular with mature adults though it is interesting to visitors of all ages to learn how many tropical fruits are grown. With the many shops and more recent addition of the Maui Zipline Company, the destination becomes a better destination for groups that may not all want the... More
