One of the best values in Princeville! Our guide - Troy from Illinois - was amazing! He was knowledgeable, provided lots of breaks, took pictures, gave a great chocolate tasting experience, and shared many stories. Troy might remember me as the person who introduced him to raw jackfruit's moniker of "tree goat" in my part of India. The gardens was built with great care by the original couple who bought the valley property, and built it up slowly with the help of designer Michael Wise. They recently sold it to a new owner. We saw such a profusion of flora - Musanda, Monkey-No-Climb tree, Pride of Burma, Giraffes's knees, and tasted a breadfruit, but avoided tasting the pungent noni fruit. Highly recommend.

Fantastic experience, starting with early emails to JanMarie hoping to get spots in an already booked up time window. She was responsive, empathetic, and eventually found us a day that worked.From arrival to departure, it's a well run operation. Small and friendly, but super efficient. Fantastic guides, rock star views and experience. Even the chocolate tasting was made into a fun experience, similar to a wine tasting, with guides and learning.A must do Kauai experience!One caveat, be aware there are some steep hills you'll be walking up. Nothing treacherous, and they pace them nicely, but if you are not comfortable with steep hills and stairs, then not for you.

This tour was absolutely beautiful! The staff was prepared for the rain and provided walking sticks and umbrellas. Troy was so knowledgeable and engaging, my teens who are more into adventure type tours were (surprisingly) not bored at all! I highly recommend!!

Beautiful and packed with information. Good tour for those looking for a laid back experience. Not ideal for teens, as they will likely be bored.

The chocolate tasting was a unique experience. Also, the tour guides provided a great deal of information on the origin and history of the various plants on the island.

The staff is so accommodating and personable. At the last minute, due to illness, my companion couldn't join the tour. The staff provided me with a bag and containers so I could take the things we tasted during the tour and our chocolate tasting back for him to enjoy later.

Seeing all the incredible plants and hearing the many uses they had for native Hawaiians really gave me an appreciation for the native people if Hawaii.

All of it was amazing! The views, the chocolate, the plants and flowers, the honey, fresh coconut, banana, etc. So many things to taste. So many things to see. If you're lucky you'll get the self professed plant nerd Heidi as your guide. She was not your typical guide that plods along pointing to stuff and saying a few pre-rehearsed notes. No, her true love of plants and gardens really shines through.
