4.5/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web
Allerton Garden is a gem in the crown of Hawaii National Tropical Botanical Gardens. Designed by Queen Emma of Hawaii and shaped by time, the garden is shaded by large rainforest plant life and tropical fruit. Flowers, ginger, and palms flourish and fill the area with sweet smells. All this natural beauty is complemented by sculptures, fountains, and manicured lawns inspired by European gardens. Take a self-guided tour through the gardens, and stop at the visitor center for literature and to ask the staff any questions.

  • Wonderful master planned garden. The gallery on gardens hold many surprising details that only a guide can highlight. The guides are excellent and are very knowledgeable. The high price of the tours may be a turn off for some but they help to support these wonderful gardens and protect endangered plant's.
  • Allerton is one of the stops I recommend if you are visiting Kauai. Amazing plants set in beautiful "rooms". As I write this I am thinking of another visit.
  • Too expensive for what is shown during the guided tour. It was disappointing to not even see the outside of the Allerton house. The guided tour was interesting and necessary to understand the features of the rooms in the garden.
  • One of the most beautiful places I've ever seen! A must see!
  • Beautiful and serene place to visit. So many amazing plants, trees, and flowers.
