Great for kiddos that love trains! They run on schedule and the grounds are beautiful. You get a short history lesson and everyone gets to feed wild pigs which was quite fun.

This was a short train ride around the Kauai property which showed boars, goats, and chickens. The foliage and property is nice, but same as you see around the island. This is a trip for small children.

We had a great time on the train and learned a lot about the trees and plants on the plantation. It was very relaxing and the kids enjoyed feeding the pigs and donkey. The pigs were especially cute!
