Our guide, Kate, made the tour fun and interesting. We felt it was overpriced for a tour that offered products for sale. We were disappointed there were not more flavors of chocolate bars to choose from to purchase.

Katie was very enthusiastic, made the tour fun and learned a lot about not only chocolate but hawaian agriculture as well. When we come back to the island this will be on our must do list.

We had a great time touring Lydgate Farms. The tour includes taste sampling honey, fruits from Kauai, and lots of chocolate! Andrea was very knowledgeable, high energy and entertaining to listen to. I would definitely recommend their tour.

Xcellent. The whole 3 hours were so full of information and history. Awesome guide. This and the helicopter ride are the two best things to do the island.
