This is a bit of an odd tour. You don’t actually get to go inside. You go up a flight of stairs and look down as the staff go to work. The main area was going in full force when we were there, but the...More

Nice store, gardens and plenty of nuts. You will find a good assortment of their nut products and a few gifts or souvenirs. Unfortunately their products are usually less expensive at the chain stores around town. This is a hotspot for many of the tour...More

Nothing special, self guided tour looking through windows of the processing plant on how the nuts are sorted, mixes added, roasting & chocolate covering is done. TV monitors explain the process. Would like to have more information on the overall growing process of the nut,...More

Very simple to work in that room with you very long. There is not much food options here other than the macadamia nuts selection.

Expecting to see the production of Mauna Loa Macadamia Nuts, we were a little disappointed at the outside look through the window tour. It was very impersonal even though 2 tv monitors showed video of the process (1 monitor didn’t work). The factory was virtually...More
