  • My wife and I visited today. Absolutely Amazing! The Gardens were breathtaking. The entire staff truly made everyone feel welcomed, at home and relaxed. Very thorough and educating, and most of all, fun! We saw beauty, smelled and tasted amazing things, laughed and simply had a great time. We've visited many botanical gardens and this was by far my favorite. Our guide Troy was THE BEST! Worth every penny and more. Thank you and don't change a thing! If perfection is a thing, you folks have the recipe!
  • Absolutely lovely botanical garden. The tour meanders through a discreetly designed jungle with a wide variety of plants and trees. The guide was very knowledgeable about the property's history, the kinds of plants we saw, plant properties, and when the best times of the year to see them. Fruit tastings along the way. One big chocolate tasting and explanation in the middle of the tour. A worthwhile experience.
  • This is a beautiful botanical garden. The guides and staff are knowledgeable and go out of their way to make everyone’s experience enjoyable. However, at $90 per person it’s very overpriced and a questionable value. There are less expensive and equally enjoyable botanical gardens elsewhere. At a more reasonable price this would be a five star experience.
  • Beautiful Gardens. Excellent staff. Tour guide Heidi is very knowledgeable and excited to teach us about the beautiful Kauaiian Flora. Chocolate/fruit tasting was fun as well. I recommend this tour to all nature lovers. Thank you!
  • 10/10 great experience! The walk was relatively easy other than one or two steep hills. There were multiple food tastings with a sit down chocolate tasting. Everything was educational and super fun.
