Excellent tour guide and beautiful scenery and fruit orchards. It was fun feeding the pigs. The ice cream is to die for. The plantation mansion will amaze you.

The staff was well versed on the workings of the railway and plantation. Would highly recommend the train/nature hike and lunch trip. Josh our guide was extremely knowledgeable on the plants and fruits grown on the plantation.

We took a train ride before our Easter lunch at Gaylord's. My 7 year old grandson loved it, especially feeding the goats and pigs! We talked about it during lunch and he has mentioned it several times since. Oh and yes the grown-ups liked it...More

If you will be at the Plantation for dinner, the rum tasting or luau, then add on this little train trip. A hit with kiddos who like to feed the animals. I enjoyed seeing the fruit on the trees and plants. Baby pineapples are adorable!

This is fun for everybody, and I can see where it would be ideal for families, and the smallest travelers. An hour or so, trainride, through cool orchards, with animals to feed, and all sorts of Hawaii history. There's also a nature walk and train...More

Yes. The plantation is very close to the main highway and shopping. It is even possible to access with local transit if you do not mind a short walk. If you take the full day tour, make sure to ask for Kai, he is an... More
