Plant nerds…this one’s for you!! Loved this tour!!
This garden was spectacular. Of all the gardens this is the one to see. Our guide, Heidi, was knowledgeable, informative and made the tour so enjoyable. We enjoyed the chocolate tasting half way through. It was perfectly timed to sit and refuel for the rest of the tour. We also got to sample different fruits and even honey too. The 3 hours went by very quickly. I can’t say enough about how beautiful the grounds were. Make sure you book as soon as you can, they did sell out. Plant nerds…this tour is definitely for you!

The Princeville Botanical Garden Tour is hands down the best garden tour.on the island
Jul 2021
My wife & I are celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary here and have been to virtually every botanical gardens on Kauai. The Princeville BG is hands down the best on the island. The guides were are very knowledgable without being pedantic. They let one enjoy the stunningly gorgeous surroundings. The chocolate tour was interesting and spot on technically. I have my PhD in Organic Chemistry and in my profession visited both the Hershey and ADM (largest chocolate processor in the US) research facilities, and the guide augmented greatly everything I learned.

A must when visiting Kauai
Beautiful property covering acres of lush landscaping, flowers, palms, trees, streams, walking bridges, stone pathways. Our guide Sara was a very friendly knowledgeable guide and her treats along the way were very tasty and refreshing. We’d recommend good walking shoes and wearing both sunscreen and mosquito repellent. We added the chocolate tasting to our tour which gave us an opportunity to stop in between the two walking tours for a yummy treat.

Beautiful Garden Tour
Jul 2021
Second time there for me, wanted to take my wife this time - she thoroughly enjoyed it as well. Our tour guide, Sarah, was awesome, and there were so many topics she could have delved into deeper if we had time! Highly recommend for anyone curious about Kauai and tropical plants, or looking for a deeper understanding about the island. The Chocolate tasting was a nice bonus!!

Support a family-owned botanical garden
This is a smaller botanical gardens but the variety of flowers and plants were plentiful. Our guide was not only knowledgeable but you could feel the passion in her words. If you're looking for a relaxing tour, look no further. It's a great way to support a family-owned business. Chocolate tasting was a bonus.
