We had a great time touring the gardens. It’s a beautiful place and our guide, Lisa was wonderful and knowledgeable. We enjoyed the tasting and smelling. When my kids heard the length of the tour, they didn’t want to go, but they liked it and found it very interesting and not long at all.

They should really say that you need to wear shoes. Some treacherous paths necessitated shoes m. Also not for people with mobility issues.
icon Response from Host , Jun. 2022
Aloha Victoria, Shoes are definitely a good idea and noted in the confirmation emails, thank you for giving folks a heads up! The terrain here in the garden is definitely steep in areas with many steps and not accessible for folks with mobility issues as you note. We appreciate your 5 star review and are thrilled you found the gardens "SUPER". Thanks for sharing.

The garden is beautiful and the food samples along the way definitely added to the experience. There is not“skip the line” as everyone is part of the reserved tour. Our make guide was pleasant but not always scientifically accurate. It is a fair bit of standing/walking.

Aloha Jocelyn, Thank you for sharing your experience with us! Our guides are well trained and versed in the botanicals here, our apologies for any misspeak.
