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

Beautiful grounds with a great tram ride to point out all of the different fruit trees and plants. Interesting narration and coconut demonstration. Gorgeous gift shop with lots of offer

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

This plantation's gift shop was one of the most reasonably priced gift shops that I have been in. The tram tour guide was a delightful local with an abundance of knowledge of the crops and an excellent sense of humor. The quaint shops, gardens, artwork, display, and wandering fowl made for an unexpectedly delightful outing which I thoroughly enjoyed. And,... More

We arrived just before hurricane Iselle hit the island. We called ahead and was told it was open. It turned out to be a perfect weather/timing to visit for the 3:15 pm tour with Ion. There was no rain during the tour. It rained shortly after tour ended and was not too hot/cold. Because of the hurricane, our family and... More

My wife and I really enjoyed this place especially the tram tour. Seeing all the different plants in one place and marked with names was nice. Was also like the relaxed atmosphere of the vendors that made stuff there really while you watched. We bought some coconut leave stuff here. Nice place worth the stop.

My boyfriend and I booked the 10:00 am Saturday tram tour wanting to avoid the crowds. To our surprise we were the only ones on the tour and Ion our driver/guide was awesome! He didn't skimp on the tour at all and was very informative, engaging and entertaining!
