We enjoyed the railway tour prior to attending the luau. It was very interesting to see and learn of the different varieties of fruits and plants grown at this working plantation and the fact that cosmetics companies also grow plants there for use in their products. Learned a little history and got to feed some pigs too!

This was a nice excursion. The grounds were amazing. If you are into trains, this is for you. There were little shops to stop at, which were interesting to see. Staff was great.

We booked a coach tour and as part of it was a stop at the Plantation Railway. This had actually been a former sugar plantation but now is an attraction with a railway running around the outskirts of the plantation so that everything on the inside can be well seen. There were sections of everything from sugar can to mango, avacado, tarrow and a lot more. There was a heard of while pigs which we stopped to feed. them.
It was really informative.

We did the 4 hour train, hike, orchard tour. Before getting on the train you meet you hiking guides. Our guides were Jason and Mango Jordan. On the train you get a narration of the different variety of fruits while passing by them. First stop is to get out & feed the pigs, goats, sheep & of course the chickens. This is also where we start the hike which is about 1.5 hrs long. After the hike we did a picnic lunch and then headed to the fruit orchards where we picked & ate fruit from every variety. Our guides were a lot of fun and very informative. Then we get back on the train and when we get back to the station it's time to sample their home made rum. The hike can be a little strenuous but with one of their walking sticks I had no problem even with my bad knees. This was another beautiful day on the island.
