Enjoyed the train ride!

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.

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the plants,... More

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

This train ride was a fun activity. It took less than an hour. I particularly found the types of plants and produce explanation interesting. It was also a joy watching the children feed chickens, goats and pigs.

My wife and I booked one of the 40min tours on the Kauai Plantation Railway. It was a great use of the time and a lot of fun! The conductor did a great job of explaining what we were seeing and describing the different plants, their uses, fun facts, and how they grow. The grounds are beautiful and the train... More

This short train ride was very informative and interesting. The "conductor" told us a lot about the area and the various plants grown on the plantation. The rail car was clean.

What a great experience this was! First we did the plantation train ride, beautiful scenery, fascinating info, and so much fun feeding the pigs! The luau was awesome! Great food, free Mai Tai's and blue hawaiians!! The dancers were spectacular. My only complaint was that our tickets stated it was from 4:30-8:30 yet when we got there, ticket booths were... More
