Disappointing as the narrated and paid for tram ride through agricultural villages, macadamia nut orchards, sugar cane fields and flower gardens was cancelled due to rain and no refund offered.

The fruit stand stop with a Hawaiian spin - turning a simple stop into a cultural event as a tour takes you through the various stages of pineapple development planting and harvesting. This is the kind of side trip to do if you find yourself with some extra time after going to the Maui Ocean Center.

It was a really peaceful and beautiful place to visit. It's inexpensive if you don't take the tram, but I am sure that would have been fun to do. We just wanted to check things out. The soap making shop was fun and gift shop has lots to chose from.

The tour is a bit $ but you learn a ton of info about the plants. We travel with an 80yo who uses her electric scooter and she has a great time.

We stopped by the plantation having seen it come up on my facebook feed. The shop has a great range of products. We did the tram tour and our guide was excellent. Very knowledgeable about the plantation and the crops. She also gave a demonstration of husking and opening a brown coconut and shared her knowledge. Oh my goodness I... More

We visited on a day when we had time to squeeze in a bunch of short trips in and around this area. It also has a wonderful gift shop if you're looking for better quality souvenirs.

We stopped here for lunch while we roaming the island. The food was alright but overpriced and the gardens themselves were underwhelming. We did not take the tram ride because it just seemed overpriced, so maybe that was better. The gift shop is very large and well-stocked but most of the items there you could find elsewhere (and probably for... More

The lady who did the tour and demonstration in opening a coconut was Informative, but the "tour" is NOT worth $20. You can walk the grounds at your leisure and read about the crops at no charge. Additionally, it was a windy day and a lady on the tour was hit in the head by a branch from a tree... More
