Very nice and smooth ride. Lots of history and feeding the animals was fun. Wish I had sat on the other side of the passenger car. Most of the sights were on the inside side.

We had so much fun taking our 3 year old on the train ride at the Kilohana Plantation. The tour guide was wonderful, but our family's favorite part was stopping to feed the animals living on the plantation! Highly recommend this activity on Kauai.

Tour guide was very personable. Knew a lot of interesting facts/ stories. Enjoyed a great brunch at Gaylord's prior to boarding train.

Interesting train ride around the plantation. The luau was a dramatic interpretation of the coming to Kauai. Well done. Crowded and felt a little like cattle.
