We loved our tour guide Sheri! She was extremely knowledgeable and personable. She was full of fun facts. We enjoyed the fruit samples and the extensive chocolate presentation. If you aren’t into botanicals, the tastings make the tour exciting and fun! The gardens are stunning and totally worth seeing. They make you feel one with nature and we thoroughly enjoyed every part! Would definitely recommend and return to this tour when we come back!

This was an amazing experience! Our guide Lisa was so knowledgeable & had such a love for the plants grown in the 9 acre garden. The chocolate tasting was delicious, too! Spending 3 hours in this splendid garden was truly special and filled with the Aloha spirit :) A must-see experience for any nature / garden lover.
Response from Host, Aug 2023
Mahalo! We are so grateful to hear that you feel the Aloha here in our corner of paradise! We will be sure to let Lisa know how much you enjoyed your visit and we look forward to seeing you next time!
Simply a must do!
Lisa_H, Aug 2023
The tour and gardens are so impressive that we could have done it all again the next day. This hidden gem is well worth a visit and we can’t recommend it highly enough, it’s definitely the highlight of our trip to Kauai. The staff are lovely, engaging and very knowledgeable. There’s tasting aplenty (both chocolate and fruit) and the beauty of the place is off the charts. We took loads of photos and they just don’t do it justice. It was 3 hours, which flew by and we still didn’t want it to end. We’ll certainly do the tour again when we’re back in Kauai, anyone who doesn’t is seriously missing out.
Response from Host, Aug 2023
Aloha and thank you for your 5 stars!! We are so stoked to know that you enjoyed your visit and we totally understand, we just can't seem to spend enough time in the garden!!! See you next time!!!

Samples of fresh fruit and chocolate. Troy was a fantastic guide. He was very knowledgeable about everything. Lisa was also a very nice and helpful person trying to protect us against bug bites. I like how both guides knew so much about how chocolates were made and different types. Thank you!

Great Experience

My wife and I had a wonderful time. The hike was enjoyable. My only recommendations is to make sure that you bring water, bring sun screen and the "best" insect spray The employees did provide their own "locally made" insect spray and anti-inflammatory lotion, but it didn't work well for us.
Response from Host, Aug 2023
Mahalo Peter! We are so glad you enjoyed yourselves in the garden! It is always good to come prepared!
Paradise found
Karen_S, Aug 2023
Heidi was an excellent guide who shared her vast knowledge of the plants in the gardens freely. The gardens themselves are lush and well tended. There were many different terraces, bridges, and pathways to explore. Not to mention a wonderful presentation about the history and culture of chocolate. Lots of tasty samples along the way!
Response from Host, Aug 2023
Mahalo! We will be sure and let Heidi know that you enjoyed your tour with her!!! So glad you love the chocolate too, it's truly one of our passions!
