...being from the islands myself and visiting family on Kauai gave us the opportunity to do some sightseeing ourselves. The guides (Kai and Josh) were fun and shared lots of knowledge. Will definitely return for a train ride when we come back.

Took my granddaughter while my wife and son were tasting Rum. The narration on the train was very good and we mad a stop along the way and the kids were able to feed the wild boars and goats. They have a fence to protect the kids from the wild animals. The kids had a great time feeding the animals.... More

My 5 year old has autism and this activity was PERFECT for him. He was able to be very safe while on the train, enjoyed the views. He loved, loved, loved feeding the goats, pigs and chickens and enjoyed seeing new animals he'd never seen before (goats and donkeys!). He even enjoyed the different plants and trees you see on...

The lunch and hike to the creek was so enjoyable and informative. The guide shared all sorts of information about the plants both native & invasive. The lunch and fruit orchard part of the day was both delicious and fun1 I highly recomment the tour. Big Kudos to the guide.

We did the nature walk, orchard tour and lunch with Jordan. Learned a lot and had a nice time. Only advice is to use the bug spray provided.

We did a 4 hour tour (train ride, nature walk, petting zoo, lunch and orchard tour) with our 10mo daughter snuck into a baby carrier. She was distracted all the way thru by the new views and happily enjoyed reaching out to touch/pluck leaves and flowers! That made the tour even more enjoyable. Had a great time on the train,...

We took our two year old on the train ride and he loved it, especially feeding the animals. It was a great way to spend 40 mins. We all learned a lot about different fruit and how they grow and would recommend anyone with some children to make the trip. Also there is free rum tastings every half-hour next door

It was amazing. Our tour guide, Kai, was awesome. It really is a nature tour... Closed toe shoes is the way to go.

We loved this experience. I would recommend it to anyone of any age. We were traveling with a wonderful lady who is 98 years old. She can walk to get onto and off of the train, but uses a wheelchair to travel in between. She loved it. As we started the trip the chickens and roosters, baby chicks and the... More
