        Incredibly fun experience
        Juan_C, Sep 2023
        Ryan!! Ryan was such a fun and enthusiastic tour guide, he made the experience all the more memorable! He told us in the beginning you retain more information while learning if you are having fun and he was right! Through the remainder of our trip on this beautiful island we kept pointing out the plants we had learned about on the tour and made us feel more immersed in our experience here. And of course the chocolate tour at the end where we learn fun facts about cocao and how to make our own which we now plan to do at home! I would recommend this tour for everyone , families included. The hike was very easy, just wear some good shoes, pack some bug spray and you are in for a real treat! Maholo Ryan for your awesome mana and Aloooooooha!
        Ton_K, Sep 2023
        Ryan is the best! He was very welcoming from the start and was just a joy to be around. It was so much fun learning about the Hawaiian Agriculture, ancient history and the brain games. Ryan spoke slowly and made sure that we were taken care of the entire tour. Thank you for being kind and Alooooooooooooha Ryan!
        Excellent educational and fun.
        Kurt_F, Aug 2023
        Great short hike, beautiful flowers, Ryan was a great tour guide. If you get to Twin falls turn around and go back to the loop. The ride there is great also.
        Worth your time
        Devens_R, Aug 2023
        The knowledge of our guide and a chance to see the jungle as it was before development occurred elsewhere on the island.
        Fun time
        Wayne_H, Jun 2023
        Ryan was very awesome Chocolate was not as expected but was great. Learned alot about the different plants and flowers wasn’t that long a hike had about 15 in group and Ryan waited for everyone even older people and answered every question. This is really worth it but do it early as it could be hot later in day. Then go on to Road to Hana Wayne
        Memorable experience of Maui’s rainforest
        Marcos_R, Jun 2023
        The “hiking” is low level but scenic and the chocolate tasting experience along with the knowledge shared was good. The picture advertising the waterfall is very misleading. What you do see is a private one from a distance. Hard to take pictures. Ryan was our guide and was enthusiastic and engaged everyone. He showed great patience with the children’s curiosity and questions. Overall a memorable experience of Maui’s rainforest.

        Aloha Marco, Glad you had a nice time, Yes it says it is a mini hike with a historical walk. As you had a wonderful time wish you had given a better star rating. Have a nice day.
        Ryan is the tour guide prototype
        DEANDRE_J, Jun 2023
        Ryan was AMAZING, he made the experience so fun and educational. He’s very intentional about making sure the whole group is involved and getting a good experience. We got to see an amazing waterfall and taste/make amazing chocolate

        Traci_B, Jun 2023
        By far the best tour we've done on Maui. Incredibly knowledgeable and witty guide who was able to captivate the attention of every person on our tour, regardless of age.

        Unique experience
        RichT, May 2023
        Was more educational than physical hiking. Guide was very knowledgeable about the plants, flowers, Hawaiian culture and history. Beautiful surroundings and unique tour. Chocolate tasting and making at the end. Was a great experience
        Superb Waterfall Hike
        Paul_T, May 2023
        This was my very first excursion and it was an amazing one. I love chasing waterfalls, so I was ready for the experience 😃! This was the first time hiking through a rainforest - but I enjoyed it! Our tour guide, Angelo was so very knowledgeable about all the different plants and trees that we encountered along our journey. He also photographed some of the best panoramic pictures that I took during the journey. During my tour, he also was so very helpful to an older couple, ensuring that we took regular breaks along the way. This was very considerate😃. We hiked to the waterfall where he took pictures of us with our phones and cameras. We also enjoyed the chocolate 🍫 tasting. As a added treat, he even made some chocolate for us during our time there. It was delicious 😋. It was a first class experience all around. When you book the excursion, make sure that you read the documents and emails that you are sent. The directions to the excursion will be included as well as the suggestion to wear long pants and/or long shirts. I would advise to wear long pants👖 or bring mosquito spray if wearing shorts. Angelo provided us with mosquito spray since we were wearing shorts. I enjoyed this excursion and I have posted more pictures and photos on my social media accounts (@travelfitguru), if you are interested in seeing more.

        So happy you had a great time, we do hand pick our guides to make sure they are passionate about the vision and mission of our cause and normally that translates into their being inspired to go beyond the call of duty with so much more Aloha. Mahalo for posting and helping others find us, so they too can have an amazing experience!

        I really enjoyed the rain forest off the beaten path. Our guide was knowledgeable and fun. The chocolate tasting was a special treat.
        Response from Host, Apr 2023

        Best 2hrs in Maui!
        Katie_M, Apr 2023
        What an amazing tour! This was the highlight of our short time in Maui. The hike is moderate intensity (uneven ground) but very safe and at a nice pace. Guide was so knowledgeable and gave lots of info on local plant life. The chocolate tasting was so fun & we had a special guest of some days old baby chicks running around with their mama. Best part is knowing the money spent on the tour goes right back into maintaining the lands and program they have.
        Response from Host, Apr 2023
        Aloha Katie, Thank you for your very kind words we so appreciate your taking the time to write such a lovely heartfelt review. Have a wonderful rest of the day.
        Beautiful, fun, and educational
        Siobhainn_V, Apr 2023
        Our tour guide Jeeva(sp?) was AMAZING! So knowledgeable & passionate about The Kings Garden-the history, culture & vegetation. He was FABULOUS with a great sense of humor & lots of patience for the younger members on the tour. The chocolate experience at the end was entertaining, educational & delicious. Wear lots of bug spray & covered shoes. The path can be a bit tricky at times. It IS after all, a micro rainforest!
        One of the best hike/ tasting experienced
        Lacey_E, Feb 2023
        Jiva was an amazing guide and we had a fantastic time! It’s like a little hike / walk through a garden while getting a lesson on Hawaiian plants, spirituality, rituals, history and of course the chocolate tasting. If you think you know chocolate…think again. This is next level but we won’t spoil it for you. Highly recommend.
        Response from Host, Feb 2023
        Aloha Lacey, So appreciated your wonderful & honest review! It's wonderful when amazing folks like you, who love to support a good local cause have such an incredible time! Mahalo for taking a moment from your busy day to write this awesome review! From all of us at the Kings Gardens Maui!
        Memorable off the beaten path experience
        Alisonyager, Feb 2023
        This was a lot of fun. We got to learn about the Hawaiian culture, got immersed in the local botanical beauty and got to learn about chocolate. The group was very small and intimate which I appreciated. The guide was knowledgeable and made the experience even better. I was glad that he let us use some of his bug spray. It was very kind of him.
        Fun in the rainforest
        Geoffrey_P, Dec 2022

        When we told tour director that we were celebrating our 50th anniversary, he had us re-enact the Hawaiian commitment ceremony. We will never forget it. This was much more than we expected. Tour was great and chocolate was delicious! Highly recommend!
