Makano, thanks for a great tour of your family Taro plantation and the Valley. It was great to see some of the same fruit trees, vegetation and surrounding as those in Panama. Continued success with your business!!

Enlightening, entertaining and educational. Easy way to get to back of canyon with a Wai’pio resident who knows history, taro farming and subsistence living in the lush valley of the king. Up close look at falls, fresh fruit and homemade poi. A must do.

Hmmm, I am not sure. I made our trip reservation fairly last minute - I left them a message on the main number, and got a call back from a different number to set everything up. I say try calling again!
