Bobby N was an excellent guide. He identified every plant I asked about and knew the areas of origin as well. If you expect to be on island awhile, buy a membership at the entrance for discounts to various US gardens and free admissions to...More

The overall tour was a bit disappointing since it seemed to be more of a walk in the woods rather than a informative tour of unique Hawaiian plants. While the gardens may be performing vital work to preserve historic and unique plants, we did not...More

An enjoyable 2.5 hour tour of a unique garden paradise. Not so much a floral garden but rather a living museum of curated plants, sculptures and water features laid out in distinct outdoor garden rooms. Paul was a very knowledgeable and entertaining guide.

This was expensive BUT the money supports this beautiful, unspoiled spot. The tour guide was knowledgable and entertaining. I saw plants i've never experienced before. It was a wonderful way to spend two hours.

Due to the terms of the trust in charge of the garden, the guided tour is the only way to see the Allerton Garden. Even though the tour is $60 per person, the 2 hour tour of the garden is well worth it! You get...More

The garden was the private garden of the Allerton family. It is composed of outdoor rooms created by plants. Each room has a signature plant or feature that sets it apart from the others. From the fig trees filmed in Jurassic Park movies to the...More

Well worth the half day off the beach. Absolutely stunning and excellent tour. Take mosquito repellent just in case...we had no problems but at times they are pesky.

We took the sunset tour, and it was nice. The garden rooms were interesting, and our guide had a lot of information. The dinner consisted of kalua pork, salad, and rice with some kind of curry chicken, and it was pretty good. This is probably...More

Well, if the cruise ship doesn’t have island excursion shuttles, you can perhaps try an Uber. The drive from the port in Lihue to the garden is roughly 20-30 minutes. It’s not a big island
