Went here on a tour entitled 'best of Maui.' If this is part of the best then Maui doesn't have much (which I know it has!). The tram tour was nothing short of pathetic. The loading of the trams (in the rain!) was chaotic and the actual tour was a joke. In about 35 minutes, I estimate we drove a... More

The main building - Plantation House - is the home of an excellent gift shop. They offer many locally made treats, spice blends, island coffee, local art, and products from local artisans. Upon the grounds you will find a number of shops, jeweler, sea glass art, glass art, and my wife’s favorite the Soap Factory. All types of vegetation /... More

We spent the afternoon at the tropical plantation and enjoyed the tour around the grounds. We learned a lot about the local vegetation and the views are beautiful against the mountains.

This was okay...we learned how to open a coconut up. There was also a soap making factory located on the plantation. The soap making factory was awesome...they had a lot of great things that were natural. You have to go by the soap factory if you don't do anything else on the plantation. They had a lot of other activities... More

There are many farms on Maui but this one is more touristy, which I don't think a bad thing at all. You can take a little train for $16 (about 40 min worth of entertainment) and it will take you around the plantation. They show you how various exotic plants and fruit trees look like, and if you have never... More

My wife and I visited this the Maui Tropical Plantation on our honeymoon. The grounds themselves were beautiful, offering great views of the West Maui Mountains while walking through tropical plants and trees. There's a great gift shop that has a plethora of Hawaiian foods, drinks, and gifts including affordable art prints, jewelry, alcohol, and apparel. There are also other... More

Today we took the tram ride and our guide, E'on, was great! He was funny, informative and made a point to talk to each of us before the ride. We could tell that he really enjoyed his job and he made us laugh the whole time! We live in Wailuku and will definitely come back again!

This was a gem to find. What a cool place to visit and see such spectacular colors in the flowers that are found on the plantation. I was surprised to find ziplines to go on...I wasn't planning to see that. The staff are super friendly and the gift shop is great...you can get totally stuck looking at all the cool... More

I've been going to Maui all my life, and have always heard of this place. Never went until just recently. To me, it's an over-priced tourist attraction. If you aren't from Hawaii and don't see all this kind of plants and whatnot on a nearly daily basis, it might be worth your time and money. What I did like here,... More
