Great afternoon in Maui rain forest

The tour was well put together and the garden is absolutely stunning! Enjoyed the history and the introduction to flora we saw during the tour. Chocolate tasting was a nice way to end the experience!

Aloha Irina, Thank you so so much as its amazingly wonderful folks like you who help us do greater good at the gardens and in our community. Thank you for your kind words and visiting as it helps us to also not only raise the needed funds to put gardens into conservation and protection but also to help feed over 60 of our homeless population each week. Have a amazingly wonderful rest of the day, Hope

2 Hours of Botany- not a hike
Ecc
, Jul 2021
The tour guide was a super nice guy but this was not really a hike and the waterfall was in the distance. He spent 2 hours mostly talking about a handful of plants (several are common house plants) related to a disjointed Hawaiin history with 80% of it about the taro plant (Hawaiin potato). We only walked about .4 miles in a small circle and stopped every 10 feet to talk about a plant. We felt it was extremely boring. We did not make chocolate. We tried a few store bought chocolates squares and tried one piece of chocolate that he made which was terrible. Learning about chocolate production was interesting. However, I was also put off by a text where they told you to tip $50 for two people and $100 for 4 people. I would not recommend this trip unless you love botany and don't actually want to hike.

Cocoa coco waterfall hike

Kana was very welcoming and thorough. He made sure to include everyone in the tour for a great experience. He showed us all amazing view of hawaii which you would normally not see from a tourist perspective. Amazing views Of the Hawaiian jungle and history honoring the islands amazing culture. Wish there was a closer view of the water fall for anyone thinking you will get to it. It’s just a view from afar from The chocolate camp, where you can sit and trial all the chocolates out there. And learn and try cacao right from the pods. Wear comfortable hiking clothes and bring plenty of bug spray!

Nice but not worth 150$

The guide was awesome. He was friendly and very knowledgeable about botany and he played the ukulele. The experience was underwhelming. It’s not a true hike all together it is about a 10 minute walk to a view of a waterfall. The path down to the waterfall was washed out so we didn’t get to see the waterfall up close. The chocolate tasting was fun and informative.

Aloha Kindly Note: We keep people safe and save lives, the guide was corrected it is not that the trail is washed out, it is for human safety that we do not take people down there, with global warming there are more and more flash floods at all waterfall areas, with the rise of flash floods more lives have been lost with people getting washed away, families loosing fathers, mothers children, entire families being lost! We are trying to bring awareness around this tragic fact that there needs to be more waterfall safety information given to the public. We are here to help save lives. Also we state that it is a easy fun hike less than a mile, and the second half is the farm to table chocolate presentation making it a fun two hour experience, so we are sorry you did not read that as all this information is on their web site. and the information sent to you prior to your visit. Also kindly note this is a charity fundraiser to raise the funds to put this sacred historical heritage site into preservation and conservation hence the focus is that we invite those who are on vacation that want to give back to a good cause first and foremost so for them the price is nothing as compare to the great feeling they get from doing good and helping to protect a sacred Hawaiian treasure like the Kings Gardens Maui, they love the fact that they get the chance to give back so we can then put this location into conservation being one of Hawaii's greatest historical Hawaiian heritage sites and Voted Best Of Maui.

Wasn’t able to attend and had horrible accommodations for compensation I was basically forced to donate almost $300 and wasn’t able to attend I would not recommend booking it’s probably better to go on your own

My husband and I loved the waterfall hike and chocolate tour! It was nice to stop and hear about the plants, culture, and history! Our guide was very knowledgeable. One thing I do wish we had brought is bug spray, but the guide had some which was good. Over all it was a great experience!
