Quite a nice train ride, and it was great that the kids got to get off to feed some of the animals. The guide was fun and kept it entertaining. It was a nice thing to do in the morning.

The train is a relaxing and very effective way to see the amazing variety of trees, fruits and crops that the plantation has. The commentary is interesting and fun and we learned a lot about Kauai and what grows there. The staff were friendly and...More

My dad, my kids, and grandkids went on this train ride through the plantation. We had ages 1-91 on this ride. It’s a wonderful family event. Looking at different fruits on the trees, hearing the history of the vegetation and who can forget the pigs...More

Train ride is around 45 mins with guide explaining the plantations, local fruit trees and a 10 min stopover in farm to feed boars & goat. Funny that feral chickens are all over and they too take their share. Kids like it.

It wasn’t what we expected. The walking tour was boring for us. The plantation was pretty. The lunch was fine, but again for what we paid for the tour, It wasnt worth it.

We had a wonderful time at Kauai Plantation. We started with a train ride around the property, then rum tasting, some time in the lounge and then a lovely meal at Godfrey’s. I highly recommend spending some time here.

We took our 2 year old and she had a blast! The train ride itself was fun and informative and she absolutely loved feeding the boars, chickens, goats and donkey. Will definitely be back!

There is nothing special about this train ride but it is a decent thing to do. Not sure I am happy with feeding captive pigs as a humane thing to do as an attraction yet I did find it entertaining.
