Nature walk

We did the nature walk, orchard tour and lunch with Jordan. Learned a lot and had a nice time. Only advice is to use the bug spray provided.

The lunch and hike to the creek was so enjoyable and informative. The guide shared all sorts of information about the plants both native & invasive. The lunch and fruit orchard part of the day was both delicious and fun1 I highly recomment the tour. Big Kudos to the guide.

Guide was informative and friendly. The pig, goats and chickens were also a delight to feed. Lunch afterward was exceptional

We did a 4 hour tour (train ride, nature walk, petting zoo, lunch and orchard tour) with our 10mo daughter snuck into a baby carrier. She was distracted all the way thru by the new views and happily enjoyed reaching out to touch/pluck leaves and flowers! That made the tour even more enjoyable. Had a great time on the train,...

We took our two year old on the train ride and he loved it, especially feeding the animals. It was a great way to spend 40 mins. We all learned a lot about different fruit and how they grow and would recommend anyone with some children to make the trip. Also there is free rum tastings every half-hour next door

It was amazing. Our tour guide, Kai, was awesome. It really is a nature tour... Closed toe shoes is the way to go.

She can walk to get onto and off of the train, but uses a wheelchair to travel in between. She loved it. As we started the trip the chickens and roosters, baby chicks and the... More

This is an old railway which tours through the plantation. You get to see a lot of different vegetation and animals ... even get to feed some which your kids will love. It is very relaxing and informative. Good to keep for a rainy day option.

For anyone wishing to learn more about Kauai''s flora and fauna, I would definitely recommend the 4 hour tour with the train ride. Kai was our guide and is extremely knowledgeable about everything on and off the plantation. We hiked through, and off the plantation, experiencing both a bit of wild Kauai and the orchards. Sampling fresh fruit of the... More

We took our 3 year old on the 40 min train ride. It was a fun trip that kept him engaged. He loved feeding the pigs and goats. We had lunch at Gaylords and treats from the Sweet Shop. Both were great.
