It was a nice, slow moving, informative day. Kai (spelling?) was a well informed, self educated guide who led us on a brief walk through the outer reaches of the grounds then through the fruit orchards. Very enjoyable.

The luau was entertaining, but I felt that it was not very authentic. It doesn't help that they fit a ton of people into one room. The fire acts toward the end were really good, but they had nets up probably for liability reasons in...More

Perfect for kids. The train ride was just long enough with lots of pretty flowers, trees, and plants to look at. Broken up by a fun pig feeding. Rum tasting for adults 🥃

I’m so glad we did this train ride. The guide was very informative and passionate about the produce, agriculture and livestock on the farm. We really had a great time.

We visited the plantation on April 26, 2018, on our last day on Kauai, and decided to do the train tour. The guide (can't remember his name...) was funny and knew a lot of information. It was a nice ride, very informative about the life...More

My 3 year old loved every minute of this train ride! He loved getting out and feeding the wild pigs too. The commentary from the guide was informative without being boring.

This was certainly my favorite thing to do on the island. I highly recommend the nature walk as you learn so much about the island that way. We had Josh as a guide and he was super friendly and answered everyone's questions. The fruit tasting...More
