We rode on a tram and got to see the flowers, plants, bushes, and crops of Maui. We saw a coconut husked, learned about the flowers, i.e., hibiscus, bougainvillea and many other herbs and plants. You could even take cuttings with you that were allowed to leave the state. Our guide was knowledgeable and answered questions aside from her planned... More

We were there during a special celebration taking place on the grounds that included seeing various age women and girls doing the hula,local foods,crafts and activities. Special treat was listening to "Hapa" a wonderful and talented musical group. Apparently, this event will happen once per year and this was the first year. Enjoyed seeing the beautiful paintings and prints for... More

There is a tram ride for 16$ which I felt is too pricey to see some plants, flowers . The driver stopped at a few places to give us photo ops and stopped at a place to show us how to open a coconut. Once the tour is over, you can walk around by yourself and the views/walks are great... More

This is a nice & relaxing place to go with children. There are various, shops, and restaurants set around a water feature on this working plantation. Even though there is no entry fee for the plantation and you can do a self guided tour, it's a great idea to pay for the tram tour. On this ride, a guide talks... More

Really interesting place. The tour was great! Not just because the tour guide Koa is awesome and knowledgeable (and my grandson), but you learn about the workings of a plantation. The ice cream is a MUST. Aloha!

We stopped here and the gift shop is large with lots of variety, as we were enjoying the gift shop it started to pour out. We decided we didn't want to tour the garden in the bad weather. We looked out and it looked like there was a lot of beautiful flowers and garden areas, but we only saw from... More

We've been here two times now and really enjoyed it. The tram tour is really interesting and educational for kids and adults. The gift shop is really interesting and we enjoyed the farmers market there too. The little artisan stands are also interesting. We met a fabulous local selling handmade necklaces. He was so good to talk to, and his... More

We visited the Maui Plantation as part of a cruise ship excursion. The facilities were well done, clean and fun. However, the tour of the "plantation" was obviously created for tourists rather than being an actual working location. Yet, the information was very informative, the coconut husking and splitting demonstration was entertaining as well as enlightening (I may have better... More
