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.

I always wanted to go on a chocolate farm just to see how this amazing precious fruit was grown and the steps it takes to process and produce this delicious confection so on our trip to Kauai my husband and I chose Lydgate farm for their tour. Well you get so much great information and more! From tasting the chocolate in its natural pod state to tasting the roasted beans and ultimately tasting the many different varieties of quality chocolate available today. We also saw vanilla beans growing naturally on the vine and tasted several tropical fruits of the islands. Don't forget to ask about Budda's hand! We couldn't have been more pleased with our guide Kate. She was informative, fun, and truly has a passion for the land, and the gifts of the earth. You won't go wrong with this tour!

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.

This tour provided so much information . . . well beyond just a chocolate tasting. Botanical information about a variety of plants and trees, tropical fruit tasting, how chocolate and vanilla are propagated, harvested and processed, and a history of the development of chocolate. Kate is an entertaining and knowledgable guide. Might be too long for kids under 12, but toys and games are provided during the tasting portion for the younger kids. Well worth the time and money.

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.
