  • Knowledgeable staff (Harold!!) and absolutely beautiful garden tour. Totally worth the $. The chocolate tasting was yummy, but the fruit samplings were even better! Tips: bug spray is provided, use it! Most of the hike is not stroller friendly (even with a Bob) so if you are bringing a little one along bring a carrier.
  • Gorgeous gardens with trails, nooks, waterfalls, bridges, fruit trees, hundreds of indigenous plants, with a guided tour option with local chocolate and fruit tastings.
  • Great place to tour in Princeville, beautiful well designed gardens with flowering and fruit trees. Informative chocolate information and tasting. Raises bees and makes honey. Friendly knowledgeable staff. Very enjoyable!
  • I think most people will enjoy this tour whether you're a plant lover or not. Home to many different beautiful plants and complete with a waterfall. The staff were very knowledgeable and gracious. We stayed in Princeville, so it was only 10 min away for us, but still highly recommended even if you're staying somewhere else.
  • I loved learning about the different types of plants and flowers and how to make chocolate. Didn't really like the chocolate tasting but I'm not a chocolate fan. But it is diffinitely a great tour to go on. The scenery is awesome. And the tour guides are very knowledgeable and passionate about the garden. I had a great time!! 😄
