  • I enjoyed the tour, mainly because our guide told us a lot of history of Hawaii. The gardens were interesting, but not what I expected. I was thinking I'd see lots of colorful flowers -- instead I saw...  more »
  • We really enjoyed this tour. Our guide, Soren, was very informative. This is a nice way to spend the afternoon in Kauai. 
  • Our entire group of 8 people ranging in age from 10 to 75 enjoyed this tour. The garden is exquisite and our tour guide was informative and entertaining. Well worth the entry fee.

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our guided tour. We initially weren't going to do the guided tour but we were glad we did. I think without the guide you miss all the planning that went into the garden. We've toured several on the islands and this was among the best. Great day, well worth the 3 hours. We'll have to come back and do the sunset catered dinner.
  • The guided tour of the Allerton gardens were a great value with a mixture of history, botany, art , culture, architecture and movie trivia mixed in. Something for everyone
  • Very cool and worth the entrance fee. You take a bus to the McBride area. We didn't have trouble with mosquitos.
  • Beautifully kept and meticulous landscapes make this a must see if you are on the island.
  • Loved it. ..
