Great walk, lots of roosters, Peacocks, and many other birds eating out of your hand. Great for children and adults alike.

We didn't go to the buffet/ all you can drink before the luau, but I think we were one of 3 couples who didn't. So...most of the audience were at least tipsy when they when they watched the show. I think that may skew some...More

We bought tickets for show only, at $15 each! We weren't interested in the food or drink. It was a lovely show and we got front row seats. The grounds and area are so beautiful. Next time we want to go on the garden tour....More
