This was our 4th time that we have gone to the Hawaiian Vanilla Company; it was great just like the previous 3 times. Our family was visiting from Colorado and they thoroughly enjoyed it too. Not only is it educational but the food is delicious....More

The owner shared many uses of vanilla that I had never considered. The lunch was delicious; the tour was very informative. I highly recommend this tour!

Very intertaning and educational. I now know why vanilla is so expensive. The food was fantastic, and the presentation enlightening.

The lunch was delicious, everything made with vanilla. After we had a tour of the farm and I now have a greater understanding of the work involved in producing the vanilla. The personnel are very knowledgeable.

The tour itself was okay, but what made it such a special experience was the lunch and the owner, Jim. The lunch was really good, every course used vanilla in a different way. Jim, the owner, has a fantastic attitude and a great passion for...More

All the tours were booked so maybe we didn't get the full experience. We took a drive to the Hawaiian Vanilla Co. because it seemed like something different to do. It was underwhelming at best. Without the tour or lunch, it was just a small,...More
