My husband and I took our 4 kids to this. Was it a little pricey? Sure. But the staff was lovely (the train conductor was hilarious) and the plantation was beautiful. I’d recommend it!

We rode this train in January 2017 and really enjoyed it! We rode it again 2 years later same month and enjoyed it again! Feeding the hogs is fun in this excursion also. Thanks so much for a great place to visit!

Couldn’t muster up my courage with a helicopter ride - this was more my style and quite enjoyed it! The tour guide was very informative except due to two ladies behind us who talked constantly and very loudly we had trouble hearing.....too bad really.....

One of the most enjoyable and affordable activities my 5- and 6-year-old have enjoyed so far. Tiny, the guide, was a lot of fun with a good amount of information about the island.

We enjoyed our time at the Kauai Plantation. Bought our tickets online and saved a bit. Informative commentary and the children especially enjoyed feeding the pigs! We were able to wander the beautiful grounds near the plantation home and take some pictures. A nice outing...More
