Embark on a relaxing and informative guided tour. Discover a tropical paradise with decades of history dating back to the 1800s.

This picturesque setting has been used in a number of films and TV shows including Pirates of the Carribean, Magnum PI, Starsky and Hutch, and Donovan’s Reef. Trek through winding pathways and marvel at towering rainforest trees providing you shade from the warm Kauai sunshine. You can’t miss the tall curving roots of the Moreton Bay fig trees made famous in the movie Jurassic Park.  Walk through a grove of swaying golden bamboo, a flower garden, and tropical fruit trees nestled amongst bronze statues and water features. Here the focus is on landscape design but your guide will be sure to point out important species including varieties of palms, flowers, and gingers.

The guide was knowledgeable and personable. The gardens and their history are amazing. It's wonderful that they're preserving both the native and "canoe" flora.
