This show was fantastic!! The food was good and the vendors on the estate prior to the show have unique and beautiful goods. Definitely recommend!

They have a train that goes around the property. There is also a place to eat. We really enjoyed the koloa rum on site. They do tastings every 30 mins.

We stopped at the plantation for a visit, but other than wandering through shops, we didn't do much else. We didn't have time for the train tour so decided to just pop into Gaylords for a drink. It's a beautiful, relaxing setting so we sat...More

This plantation features a small railroad that offers rides to visitors. We eschewed the train and shopped the many stores to our heart's content. In the trolley gift shop I found a wooden hatpin that was truly the envy of the island. Everywhere I went...More

The food itself was buffet style, and a bit rushed to get it, and eat. The same with the desert. The food was a 3 out of five and the show was a 10 out of five. The restaurant prices on the Island were Hawaii...More

We rode the train and enjoyed learning about the plants and animals on the grounds. Also enjoyed lunch at Gaylord's and the Rum Tasting at the Koloa factory store.

The food was below average and too expensive. The food trucks actually have better food, the portions of fish in particular are more generous and the prices are better. Very disappointing. Was happier with my visit there last year.

You can get a tour. Busses pulled up. But you could also get a cab. Just sandwiches and a drink in the bar would be worth it. The old growth gardens and craft shows were also great.

I would say you could spend time in the wonderful restaurant and touring the 12 shops as well as the rum tasting which takes almost an hour. Alternatively the museum is worth a visit...we spent a couple of hours here.
