The owner gave us the tour and he's extremely self-absorbed. It really detracted from the experience for both myself and my two friends. Everyone else in our group really seemed to eat it up though. It really stood in stark contrast the to other humble and down to earth farm owners we interacted with on our visit to the Big... More

This is a great family owned vanilla farm. The owner and the sons run the lunch and the tour, and they are all very informative. The owner is very fun! Definitely would recommend the lunch and tour, the vanilla inspired menu is delicious! There is a bit of walking on the tour, it may be difficult for some guests.

Just returned from Oahu and sat next to a couple on the plane asking about things to do on the big island. My #1 recommendation is a lunch and tour of the Hawaiian Vanilla Farm. I always take my visitors there; probably 8 times now and everyone has loved it. The lunch is great and the tour (by either Jim... More

We had a wonderful experience at the Hawaiian Vanilla company. The lunch was gourmet guality; they can do so many tasty vanilla infused dishes. The tour was very informative and the entire family did their utmost to answer our questions. Do not miss this when visiting the Big Island.

We had a great time at the Vanilla Company. We made reservations in advance for the lunch and tour. It's a family-run business. Mom is involved with lunch, sons and dad serve the meal, do a demo, run the gift shop and give the tour. Started with lunch. It was very good and a lot of food. Then walked down... More

We had been interested in going to the Hawaiian Vanilla Company for years and finally on this trip to the Big Island we made it. We enjoyed a creative and tasty lunch featuring vanilla-enhanced beverages and food. The tour to the growing area was shortened by rain but we managed to see it all and get back to the visitor...

We thoroughly enjoyed our luncheon of vanilla-infused food items and subsequent peek at the vanilla farm - too bad we weren't taken to the areas where vanilla beans were actually growing. But the best part was the information and education about the growing process and how this family came to be involved. The best stop during our 3-week Hawaiian vacation!!

We did the lunch and tour at the Hawaii Vanilla Company and had a wonderful time. The lunch was delicious but a little too much food. The tour was informative and a nice walk! This is truly a family owned and operated business and their care and love show. They are inspiring!
