The family enjoyed this trip and our tour guide was great, informative and our kids really enjoyed the interaction with her including watching a coconut being split open and eating the fruit inside. But, as our tour guide kept telling us there were plans to make the plantation better, fill in the large dirt fields, bring in livestock and it... More

This is another quick stop on the way either to or from Iao Valley. I didn't do the tram ride, but walked the self guided plant/flower tour. The grounds are lovely and they situate the shops so that you tend to run into one as you are viewing the flowers. Not a lot was in bloom in July, but it... More

Stopped on our way back from Iao Valley. This place is very pretty. I recommend this stop for sure. They have great gifts should you need to buy for others. This is also where the zip line company is. There seemed to have been a restaurant onsite, smelled good. The soap company onsite is amazing! This place makes their own... More

It was great to see how everything grows and what the plants look like. The coconut demonstration was fun to watch and informative. We spent quite a bit of time going around to the shops. Not everyone in our group wanted to come but those that did go really enjoyed it.

$16 a piece to ride the train around the grounds? Really? One positive was the local produce stand located off of the parking lot (not the main building).

We spent a couple of hours on the plantation, despite what I read in these reviews, we enjoyed the tram ride the most. Ion was our driver/host for the plantation tram ride. He became instant friends with my 10 year old son, and my 70 year old parents. The property is shady, clean and quiet. A great place to stop... More

I believe it was bought out by someone from California. The gardens have changed a little. Maybe it was the season but the flowers and the construction has changed. The gift store has surrounding the interior walls amazing collection of coffee grinders. The gifts here are of reasonable prices and unique. I bought a cute little Turtle purse for my... More

You need to pay for the tram tour (about $16/person) to visit the plantation. The tour lasted about half an hour, the tour guide was also the driver & he's quite funny. He told us about the plants in the plantation & demonstrated how to open a coconut. The tour was quite enjoyable. There's a small farm shop, a gift... More

Cool activity to enjoy a tram ride touring the variety of plants grown throughout Hawaii. Also, there is a mini history of plantation life, good food and a large gift shop.
