This was highly recommended by friends who went to the vanilla tour in the past. It was everything that said and more. This family owning this company is so special & you can tell they totally enjoy it. The food was delicious too-- a little on the large size though.

A hidden gem in the Northern Coast of Hawaii Island. If you ever wanted to see and know more about growing and using vanilla, this is the place. A good short tour on how vanilla is grown including a luncheon on ways vanilla is used to enhance the natural flavors of organic foods. Highly recommended if your visiting the big island.

The Hawaiian Vanilla Company is a small plantation in the nortth west of Big Island on Hawaii. It appears to be the only one who does vanilla plantation tours on the hawaiian islands. I had booked a normal guided tour through the plantation without the lunch option and was totally disappointed. The company owner was a friendly guy who unfortunately preferred to talk about his family history and money he earns with the vanilla orchide rather than telling us something about the plant and harvesting, etc. itself. Additionally, we only visited one small area with 2 plants which were unfortunately not in blossom (I know that no one can blame the owner for that). After that we got one icecream and everything was over after 80 minutes. For 30 USD and 2h of driving from Hilo this is really not worth it.
