We learned a lot about the many cultures brought to Hawaii to work the plantations. Our docent, Take, was outstanding. The tour lasted just under two hours, primarily due to Take taking the time to answer our questions with interesting stories.

This place is a hidden treasure in Waipahu! We had the joy of being escorted by Charlie and his Pomeranian Tomo. Charlie is 90 and can truly "talk story" about growing up on a cane plantation and about Waipahu history. We learned a great deal about the major ethnicities who worked the plantations and saw how the houses were tailored... More

Wife and I were really excited about the opportunity to see how the ethnic groups who worked and lived in and around the 19th and early 20th century Hawaiian "Plantations" fared in their day to day lives. Unfortunately it was pretty much a waste of time. We had a small group of my wife and myself, a couple with a... More

I arrived at the Plantation Village and signed up for the next tour--the tours start on the hour between 10 am and 2 pm. I was the only one there, so I received a one-on-one tour. Gary, my tour guide, mentioned that the tour could take up to 2 1/2 hours. He said he could provide me with a condensed... More

Really great insight into plantation and immigration era. Our tour guide Charlie (and Tomo) were the best!! Very knowledgeable and interesting. Ironic that the Missionaries came to save the Hawaiian People, but many of the decendants of the Missionaries owned the plantations that exploited the labor of Hawaii and it's people (as well as immigrants).

If u are interested in learning about local culture, try this place. The houses are like tiny museums filled with actual utensils used by plantation workers. Each house reflects a different culture that made up the various people who worked on the plantations. Local people visit here during Halloween when it becomes a popular Haunted House. Ask about the ghost... More

This is one of Hawaii's hidden gems that gives visitors and residents of Oahu a sense of the Island's history. This is a "do not miss" on any trip to Hawaii. Admission is $15 for adults and $6 for kids 4 - 11. There are deep discounts for seniors and military. Guided tours start on the hour from 10 -2... More

I took this tour in September 2016 and despite the rain enjoyed the tour. It's not cheap at $15 usd, but they have a number of replica buildings they have to maintain, so i can see why the ticket price is that much We were lucky it was just me and my travel partner on the tour. Our guide, an... More

First, this is NOT Dole Plantation. Some of the Trip Advisor reviewers are confusing Hawaii Plantation Village with Dole Plantation. There are no mazes and no pineapple. Second, one reviewer said there were no bathrooms. There ARE bathrooms - one at the check-in building and one in the village. Third, call ahead to determine the tour times for the day... More

We visited the planation today and had a tour with a group of about 10 adults and 4 kids. You have a guided tour around the plantation that includes replicas and one original house from the sugarcane plantation days in Hawaii. They range from a grass hut (original hawaiians) to a two bedroom house with a flush toilet and a... More
