  • The Garden of Eden delivers a well manicured, easy self guided tour though a variety of local and exotic plants, and several beautiful vantage points. It is $15 per adult, and they do accept credit card. There are 2 miles of trails, which do have sections with a steeper incline, but there are some easy sections as well if you have difficulty walking. Summary: If you want to stop and get a well manicured look at some local and exotic flora, and are willing to pay $15 per person to do so, it is probably worth your time on your way to Hana. There is another free arboretum further down the road, but the parking is limited. We were not able to stop here so I can't compare but it might be a suitable free alternative.
  • An attraction on the way to Hana. $15 per person. Should be priced per vehicle in my opinion. The owner has several bathrooms located throughout the grounds. They are beautiful kept. Bug spray isn't crucial but if you're concerned about the Zika virus, it's a layer of protection. Bugs weren't bad at all really but it rained heavily just as we arrived for about 5 minutes. By the time we parked, it was done. Weather can change quickly. Having a rain jacket handy would be smart as well as good hiking shoes. You can get by with sandals or flip flops but not recommended.
  • Very nice attendant at the gate, she was friendly and offered us a group discount. The garden itself is not all too big, but does have a nice view of a waterfall and a variety of plants. Also ducks.
  • Had the misfortune of visiting during a fairly heavy rain. Still worth the cost & the drive. Beautiful foliage everywhere, very friendly staff. Beautiful scenery & views. Neat gift shop with the most beautiful woman in all Hawaii.
  • Ignore negative reviews and make this stop for a mystical experience. Our trip from the city was specifically to tour the gardens and well worth the price and drive. Being from the deserts of Arizona, the variety of exotic birds, trees and flowers was amazing. The photo opportunities were abundant as we strolled thru the fragrant flowers and fruits. Take a picnic lunch as we did enjoy in one of the several picturesque settings. Take your time as there's no rush and learn from the several signs posted with names an history of much of the foliage. I would have loved to have a list and photos of the birds we encountered. Can't wait to get home to see and order prints. Thank you Alan for a wonderful experience!
