    What a beautiful and serene experience! Walk through a lush collection of Hawaii's native plants and trees! Learn about the historical uses of these plants as you climb to the top of the forest scenery. Great and friendly staff! Mahalo!

    We took the 1pm tour and got a very good overview of a large variety of indigenous plants and their uses. Certainly recommended for botanical enthusiasts.

    Went on the guided tour conducted by an volunteer amateur botanist. It was a fun way to spent a hour to understand the culture of Hawaii. Beware of the Mosquitos. BRING INSECT REPELLENT OR WEAR LONG PANTS/ENCLOSED SHOES.
