Good tour guide, Really nice bus.
Sail Date: October 2018
Good tour guide, Really nice bus. Plantation Railway was not authentic but did show the plantation gardens and some of the native wildlife. In addition, let's face it, it's just fun to ride a train!

$80 each for a bus ride to a place with free admission and a $19 train ride.
Sail Date: September 2017
$80 each for a bus ride to a place with free admission and a $19 train ride. However, interesting, worth a visit; how often do you get to feed pigs?

very nice however, if you have not been to Kauai before take the Na Pali coast. I have been to the islands several times before and stayed there a week on each major island. The sugar train was one of the few things I did not do.

The train ride was ok but nothing spectacular. We did learn alot about the things that are grown in Hawaii and those products that are not. I guess I was expecting more things to look at.

We did the plantation tour before the Kalamaku luau - it was booked as one excursion. The railway was enjoyable and not crowded when we were there. They had a nice shop with shirts and other goodies along with another gift shop and a place to try liquor - I don't recall what type it was (wine maybe?) we didn't do the tasting. In all it was a nice add on to the luau. Read Less
