“Fun little tour”
Reviewed 18 March 2014

We did this ride as part of our Luau Kalamaku experience. It was interesting to see all the plants currently grown on the grounds and to hear about the history of the property as a sugar plantation.

“Enjoyable”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

My wife and I spent the $18 x 2 to take the one hour RR tour around Gaylords plantation. The tour guide is friendly, shows what they grow there, you get to feed their pigs, chickens, and goats on the far side of the RR, and the train ride is pleasant.

“2 year olds love it!!”
Reviewed 7 February 2014 via mobile

We went with our two year old grandson. He is a Thomas big time fan. So he was in seventh heaven. The tour was way too much selling of the plantation products. Too much for me and too much time spent feeding pigs and roosters on the plantation. But the train was just great.

“2 year old grandaughter loved it”
Reviewed 29 January 2014 via mobile

We took our 2 year old granddaughter on this trip and from the start she loved the train and the train ride but once we stopped to feed the feral pigs she had the most fun. The trip through the gardens was fun and I was able to see some fruits, such as rambutan, that I had never seen growing.

All of the fruits and vegetables that they use at Gaylords is grown right here plus all scraps from the restaurant and luau go back to the feral pig pen which is interesting because that Kailua pork you eat at the luau is one of those feral pigs.

Nice trip and I would recommend it.

“Fun train ride”
Reviewed 28 December 2013

This was a quick tour by train of the historic Kilohana Plantation on Kauai. The guides offered up some of the local history, and info on the plantation environment. What made it all worth it, though, was watching the interaction of the kids (and some grown-ups) with the pigs and goats and chickens at the petting zoo stop. Would definitely recommend this for a family outing while on the island.
