I liked the tram tour here. On it you learnt about pineapples, and saw all different fruits growing. You also saw a coconut shucking demonstration. You also learnt that most palm trees are actually coconut trees with the coconuts, having been taken off. I would go back.

Our family was touring around the north coast of Maui for the morning and was looking for a place for lunch. We saw a Sunday Brunch sign outside this lovely-looking plantation and decided to give it a try.

Big Mistake! While the food looked good, the taste was not. Most of it was tepid to cold. Flies galore - kid of disgusting while trying to eat. My daughter said they were all over the buns so we stayed away from them. Also didn't have dessert as I think the flies already ate most of it.

Expensive and definitely not worth the stop.

A fun time for all ages. Ian, Brandon and Fulton learned everyone's name in a flash and talked to all of us like friends the whole time. They were safety first but in a friendly way and followed their procedures to a tee each time. The views are great and their are 5 zip lines runs with two lines per run . Our family of four was in a group of 11 so there is a little waiting between turns but that gave us time to enjoy the day, the view and chat among all of us. Exciting, but not intimidating...there were 8 year olds up to 60 year olds on this and all were smiling at the end. Also a nice large gift store to browse through after we were done.

We were looking forward to taking in this plantation via their tram ride. We arrived at 11 am and all the tram rides were cancelled until 3 pm. What a disappointment. The grounds have seen better days. The place seems focused on selling touristy trinkets rather than on promoting the plantation. The zip lines did not look like much. Most items for sale were over priced and not unique. The locally made soap and lotion shop was the exception as items were of quality and reasonably priced. A jeweller was selling Tahitian pearls on silver settings and prices were outrageous. If you want to see beautiful gardens and flowers go to the lavender farm.

This was a quick tour, we did the tram. It was a great time and our tour guide was very informative! We learned a lot about the plants and assorted things we didn't know. The tram ride was pretty short but you'll get some great photos and it's a great way to see a lot of the tropical side of Maui. There are several shopping options in the plantation and we were able to get many souvenirs. Very friendly staff. Overall a great way to spend a few hours on a lazy afternoon!
