The train ride was lots of fun and informative as well. Lunch was amazing at Gaylord’s. The shops were nice also. A must see.

What we liked: - Our 3 year old loved plucking fruits directly from trees (and tasting them) - Our tour guide was very informative (not just on this plantation, but Hawaii History in general) - Well paced tour with nice lunch; 3.5 hours didn't feel long at all. Would definitely recommend this over the short (40 mins) train only tour - A good change of pace & variety from all the beaches in Kauai What I would've liked to see better: - More varities of fruit types. Off the 8-10 fruits we explored, 3 were variations of oranges. (This could have been a seasonal thing too.) - While in the train, the sound was too loud. Don't know what could be done about that.. Maybe grease the wheels? :D

When initially booking this, I booked for the wrong day. I called and spoke to someone who happily modified my reservation for the correct day. There was no hassle or complications. The day of the experience, which was a hot one, I saw what I now know would be our tour guide carrying a bag full of water bottles on his back. I was amazed on the preparations he made before even starting the tour. The tour itself was incredibly educational and delicious. Our tour guide Kai, a native born on the island, has so much knowledge and experience which made the trip even more enjoyable. This was my favorite part of our vacation and would happily come again based solely on this experience. Be sure to check out the complimentary rum tasting after booking a tour with Kai.

The guide stood in the first train car with it roped off to any other riders. He would commonly announce things like "coming up ahead is a ____ tree" but you would have no idea what tree it was when you actually passed it. Difficult to communicate with him when in a different car than the rest of the passengers. Hoped to see pineapple field and only a few plants were pointed out way in the distance.
