The train stops at a halfway point and you get our to feed the pigs, and goats, and chickens. Great for young and old alike. They grow all... More

The ride was a lot of fun, very informative, and the kids enjoyed the animals. The slow pace and beautiful Vistas were relaxing.

Very much enjoyed visiting the plantation on Kauai! The train ride was fun and our narrator "Tiny" was hysterical, yet informative too. We then went to the Luau there and it was fantastic. Food quite good too. Don't miss a chance to take the train ride and attend the Luau - highly recommend!!

My husband and I booked this tour before leaving Canada for Kauai as it looked very appealing. We were so glad we did. We learned so much about the flora and fauna indigenous to Kauai and did so in such a quaint and pleasant way - by train! We thoroughly enjoyed every bit of this tour. Definitely a must do... More

I took my two-year old on this tour. She loved the train ride and adored feeding the animals. Unfortunately, she didn't have the best shoes so I had to carry her for a majority of the nature and we ended up leaving before getting to pick fresh fruit from the groves. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the plants,... More

We enjoyed the 40 minute train ride around this old sugar cane plantation. We liked hearing about the different fruit trees they take care of and the history of the area.

My husband and I LOVED this tour! Our guide, KAI - was very friendly and knowledgeable about Hawaiian history, Kilohana history, and also about all the vegetation we saw on the nature hike! The hike is very easy - there even was a couple that took a small child (20 months old) along in a backpack! Lunch was tasty -... More
