We did the self-guided tour since people on the guided tours are always much too slow for us ;-)
The booklet you get is very helpful and informative, the setting is absolutely gorgeous with lovely ocean views (whales can be spotted during season) and of course Napali providing the backdrop. So, while you're enjoying yourself in the relaxing environment of the carefully maintained garden, you actually learn a lot about plants on Hawai'i and their history, which was fascinating! We read up on quite a few things after returning home! Be sure to bring a raincoat or windbreaker in winter since there are always showers on the North Coast (yes, that's why everything is so green...) and sensible shoes. And do come early when you're driving: the parking lot is quite small and fills up rather early.
