Cacao trees and chocolate tastings in a treehouse!
Joni_G, Mar 2023
Great time. Our guide Kat was wonderful and filled with information about the chocolate process. Just long enough to not lose interest! Beautiful setting. Highly Recommended!
Enjoyable tour
Lindsay_C, Mar 2023
A nice short, educational tour. Enjoyed the history of the company and how they are giving back in terms of donations and sustainability. Also learned much about the chocolate making process from start to finish. Highlight is the tasting in the treehouse with amazing views. It is all dark chocolate samples so if you’re not a dark chocolate fan you may not enjoy.
Great for families

Super fun and saw tons of whales. Drinks were a nice add to the experience. We had our 8 year old and it was great for him. He loved it.
Great tour!

Who can pass up a chocolate tour and tasting?! Not this chocolate lover. The tour was interesting and the tasting was substantial (and yummy). IOur guide, Lucas knew his stuff. And it made it even more worthwhile hearing that all profits went back into the community.
Beautiful farm
Vince_C, Mar 2023
We enjoyed learning about this particular cacao farm in Hawaii and love the founders philosophy of giving back to the people of Maui. And of course the treehouse chocolate tasting was great! Wonderful tour guide was fun!

Getting to try the different chocolate pieces. I do wish that there was more demonstrations included as well as seeing the factory process. Overall it was really good
Very informative and tasty!

All about chocolate
Ron_S, Mar 2023
A complete tasting and lecture on the growing and production of chocolate. The owner shares his passion and expertise.
Social minded great chocolate
Monica_P, Feb 2023
The owner has a very interesting business model. I love how they are producing quality chocolate and also giving back to their local Maui community.
Too Many Mosquitoes
Rita_M, Feb 2023
It was cool to see the cacao trees up close, but there should have been a serious warning about mosquitoes ahead of time. While hubby did not seem affected, I had 20-30 bites, mostly around my knees, which were still itching on Sunday after a tour on Friday. Our guide was aware of the issue but seemed to think the bites only were a minor issue - not for me!!! They should recommend taking precautions ahead of the tour, or provide options before heading to the grove of trees. I also think $85 per person is quite steep for this tour, so do not bother if you have a limited budget- just do your own research.
Wonderful experience
Tanya_M, Feb 2023
Had a wonderful time touring the farm and factory! Our guide was experienced, knowledgeable and very friendly. We took a ride up thr farm and learned about the history of the land, farm and the the detailed process from harvesting to the final chocolate product. Views were amazing and loved sitting in the tree house tasting chocolate!

Very enjoyable and informative. The weather did not cooperate, so we did not get to see the actual farm, but the presentation at the center was excellent, and the chocolate tasted great!
Informative Tour
Peg_R, Feb 2023
We thoroughly enjoyed the very informative and interesting tour given by Trevor. He shared info during the drive to the farm and at the site. The tasting was really fun up in the treehouse!
Great lil chocolate tour! 🤩
Valerie_J, Feb 2023
The tour was so fun and informative! It was concise and enjoyable- not too hot! Tasting 9 chocolates after learning about how they make it is the “chocolate” on top of the whole experience! Thanks Ku’ia Farms!! We brought home lots of the guava and mango chocolate!
Interesting tour of a Cacao farm
Lara_D, Feb 2023
From the beginning of arrival the staff were friendly and fun. Very interesting tour. Our guide was knowledgeable and obviously I could see he loves his job. He was interactive with clients and so friendly and kind. The chocolates are the best I’ve ever tasted. No more Lindt chocolate for me!
