        As a mom who loves and appreciates nature so much, I should have booked just for myself since it’s an extremely pricey two hour tour.

        Great, Educational Experience
        Beth_K, Mar 2023
        Our tour guide made us laugh until our bellies hurt. We learned so much about the history of Hawaii.
        Our memorable rainforest/chocolate making experience!
        Fredrick_D, Mar 2023
        Our guide was wonderful, very knowledgeable about the plant and animal life, very entertaining, as well! We loved the chocolate making process, one that I plan on using in the future. We wish there had been more than one waterfall from a distance, but other than that we all thoroughly enjoyed our experience!

        So happy you had a wonderful time here at the Kings Gardens Wilderness adventure and historical Walking tour with Fun Farm to table chocolate making. Yes waterfall is viewed from a safe distance with your safety in mind as with global warming there are more and more flash floods and each year so many lives are lost, so for your protection it is at a safe but captivating views and two enchanting view points. Much closer that even the Garden of Eden who view is more than a mile away ours 1000 times closer! Again mahalo for the great review! Have a fun rest of the day!
        Memorable laughs and learning.
        Marie_D, Mar 2023
        The guide Kana was funny and very knowledgeable. It was the most fun we’ve had on a trail this year.
        Great unusual personalized tour
        Beth_H, Feb 2023
        Our guide Kana was fun and knowledgeable. Enjoyed the chocolate making, too. Beautiful garden which competes with the jungle for space.
        Beautiful informative hike+CHOCOLATE = Best of Maui
        Mark_P, Jan 2023
        Jiva, our guide, was excellent. He provide a large amount of information (historical; botanical; etc.) but in an extremely engaging way. It felt more like good storytelling rather than a lecture. Moreover, the chocolate making and tasting was fabulous. We enjoyed it thoroughly.

        Wonderful group went through our deafness and interpreting for us while guider explained our conversation.
        Come for the learning and leave with a great chocolate treat!
        Shane_C, Sep 2022
        This is a very personal tour with a guide that knows a lot about rainforest plants and trees. The hands-on interaction with the fruits and plants is engaging for everyone. The final lesson on the cacao plant and chocolate making is a real treat. Plenty of value throughout this adventure.
        Response from Host, Oct 2022
        Mahalo for taking the time to write this awesome review! It let's us know we are on point & making sure that those who visit not only get to help a great cause, but also have a great time while doing so!
        Highly recommend
        Benjamin_H, Sep 2022
        Very beautiful hike, memorable experience. Our tour guide, Kana, was a blast. We learned the history of Kings Garden, and a lot about the local plant life.
        Response from Host, Sep 2022
        Mahalo, we truly appreciated great folks like you who love helping and giving back to a good local charity while on vacation and having a fantastic time in the process!

        During the tour you are exposed to wild vegetation area, but the variety of plants is poor. The “Chocolate Tour” really does not exist. Only at the end you receive some basic information…
        Response from Host, Aug 2022
        Over 99% of people find this a super amazing Rainforest adventure that they day rivals that of the Amazon. We have rare and endanger species and over 100 varieties of flora and fauna. They love the waterfall views and express it is one of the best tours they did on island, and that the chocolate We do not have a record of your visit you must be a the competitor that has been posting fake negative reviews.
        Arjuna is the best!!!
        Steven_A, Aug 2022
        Arjuna was beyond phenomenal! He was the best tour guide we’ve ever had with immense knowledge of the land and history and culture of the island and area we were in. He was very polite and thoughtful, catering to specific dietary needs and answering all and any questions happily. AHUIPO
        Response from Host, Aug 2022
        Mahalo Steve, Yes, Arjuna Is truly wonderful. Happy to say our guides are hand picked, world class and have an immense passion & incredible knowledge of the gardens, the culture and the expert knowledge to ensure your visit here is not only fun & fascinating but a wonderful memory that will last a last a lifetime.

        Fun time ATVing in the Maui Mountains.
        Kristin_B, Aug 2022
        The tour guides were so friendly and informative. We just had so much FUN. I’m a large gal and it was comfortable and excited 😊. Loved that it rained and we got all wet and muddy.
        Tourist Scam
        Andrew_S, Aug 2022
        A classic tourist scam and a fraudulent misrepresentation of what was advertised. My confirmation number is 1289733006 and my booking number is 899497538 in the event the tour guide says theres no record of me attending the tour. This tour is maybe worth $20 a person at best, the $125 a person price is insane and I cannot comprehend how anyone could pay that and feel that it was worth it.
        Response from Host, Aug 2022
        Folks you can see from 90% of visitors love this beautiful locations and awesome guides. Also this person number is invalid, we have no record of their visit. Sad there are folks out there who go to such lengths to discredit a beautiful location and a charity project they are really good folks doing great things! I have worked with them for three years they are the real deal!
        Description is not...
        sandeep_k, Aug 2022
        Description is not accurate private waterfall and rainforest, there is no waterfalls it’s all about nature.
        Response from Host, Aug 2022
        Hi we have no record of your visit. Hence this must be for another location. Have a nice day, Aloha
        If you Love Chocolate this is the one for you
        Mike_D, Jul 2022
        I’m rather mixed on my review. I loved the guide and the history was fascinating. The hike was really a short slow stroll. We didn’t get very close to the waterfall. The chocolate part was very interesting and very yummy. I’m not sure it was worth as much as was charged; however, it is a non-profit. In addition, if you want regular water bring it as they only have sparkling water.
        Fun and informative short hike (with a chocolate ending!)
        Diane_S, Jul 2022
        More a stroll than a hike, but our guide offered a lot of info and great stories about the beautiful foliage and flowers in the rain forest. Only saw the waterfall from afar, but it was impressive. The chocolate tasting was a fun way to end our adventure.
        Nice hike
        Jason_C, Jul 2022
        Chocolate tasting and learning about the different types of plants. It was exciting and fun. My kids had a blast.
        Response from Host, Jul 2022
        Aloha Jason, Mahalo for your very kind words, happy you enjoyed your time with us! Its amazing folks like you who love to help a good cause while on vacation that allows us to do great work here at the gardens and in our community. Have awesome rest of the day, From All Of Us At The Kings Gardens Maui
        Kristene_R, Jun 2022
        Our guide had a great sense of humor and very knowledgeable . He seemed to really enjoy his job. Would recommend this bike because it’s a small loop and not very long. Beautiful
        Fascinating and fun tour!
        Tammy_D, May 2022
        Such an enjoyable and informative toue with Kana! He made learning about the flora and history of the gardens very entertaining! The hike is very easy with only a few areas that were a little difficult but handrails were in these spots. The chocolate education and tasting was also fun. Kana gave us directions to the Twin Falls where we went afterwards and swam under the waterfalls. Wonderful day!!
