Really great experience! Beautiful drive to the farm. Delicious and warm hospitality. You’ll learn a lot about vanilla too!

Ian gave a wonderful presentation before and after a very delicious lunch. The lunch we were served was prepared by his siblings as this is truly a family run part of Agriturism in Hawaii. Very much worth the money and the drive.

We booked the lunch and tour at Hawaiian Vanilla Company while we were on the Big Island for a week, seeing the vanilla plants and learning how they are farmed was both informative and fun. Plus we got some great stuff in the gift shop.

We had a lovely time. We're only disappointed that we didn't sign up for the lunch too. It was very educational and the guide was knowledgeable.

Went for the lunch and tour. Excellent food and informative. Their vanilla has much better flavor than commercial stuff. The tour itself is a bit skimpy. We were expecting to see a bit of the processing of the beans. We only get to see one...More

I have been to Hawaii many times, and I'm especially interested in agriculture and food, but I had never heard of this place before. I just happened to pick up a brochure the day before, and we were lucky that there were still two places...More

The food was fantastic and Ian was an awesome tour guide. We learned so much that we never knew about vanilla. I highly recommend the lunch& farm tour. It was great. I will come back every time I'm on the big island.

The lunch tour was delicious and informative. You could tell our tour guide had a passion for vanilla agriculture. Also had a very good vanilla shake on our way home. Many products for purchase as well. Great scenic drive from Hilo as well.

We did not do the lunch. As I recall the non-lunch tour starts at 1PM. You get there and enjoy the complimentary beverage. The actual tour our day started about 1:15 PM and lasted 60 minutes. It involves walking about 1 - 2... More

They are very accommodating to dietary restrictions ...You just have to make them aware of it before you arrive there. I believe there is a section on the website to make that known when you sign up or you can call them
