    Wonderful Start to our Big Island Vacation
    lianeretherford, Apr 2024
    This was a wonderful surprise. Greg was a great guide of his farm and so knowledgeable. I highly recommend if you love good coffee, chocolate, and great smelling all natural soaps.
    Educational family tour that’s interesting and entertaining.
    Ginger_R, Mar 2024
    My 8-year-old daughter and I both enjoyed this tour! Animals, science, tasting, soap making, and shopping the different soaps and chocolates at the end made for an educational and unique tour.
    Fabulous Tour
    Valerie_N, Mar 2024
    Greg Colden did an amazing tour of Kokoleka Lani Farms. The chocolate was fabulous! We loved learning about how his farm cultivates the cacao tree and ferments the beans to make delicious chocolate. An added treat was learning how the Kona Natural Soap Company creates their soap and products with no synthetic fragrances or artificial preservatives by hand. This tour was one of our highlights in visiting Hawaii!
    A very informative tour.
    Heather_K, Mar 2024
    The tour was very informative. The gift shop was fun. We bought more soap than coffee and chocolate!! I do NOT regret that.
    Local Chocolate, Coffee and Natural Soaps to enjoy and share.
    Janet_M, Mar 2024
    Greg, our host, talked about the land, the trees and plants surrounding the farm. The cacao and coffee trees were viewed and discussed with samples passed around the group. The tour also included the soap processing story and the use of kukui nut oil. Chocolate and coffee samples were enjoyed and discussed. Great tour for singles, couples, and families.
    Cacao, coffee, soap, and chickens!
    Rebecca_M, Mar 2024
    This was such a fun and informative tour! Not only did we learn about coffee and chocolate, but we also learned about soap making. I highly recommend taking a few hours of your day to enjoy this gem.
    Kokoleka Lani Farms - a Big Island wonder!!
    mireille_m, Mar 2024
    Absolutely fabulous tour. I was skeptical about a 3 hour tour but we were all mesmerized with information about this 5 acre amazing farm. Learned about coffee making, chocolate and soap making. Kudos to Gary and his crew. Please don’t pass up the opportunity to visit this gem! And take some soap, coffee and chocolate home!
    Great time!
    Shellee_L, Mar 2024
    Great tour! Greg was very entertaining and informative. Would absolutely recommend this to anyone coming to Kona!
    Superb Kona coffee farm tour
    MICHAEL_G, Mar 2024
    My wife and I did not know what to expect, but the tour turned out to exceed expectations. Our tour guide through the farm, Greg Golden, was a treasure trove of information related to everything related to growing, cultivating, and producing chocolate (cacao), Kona coffee, and sustainably produced soap. Greg was also very engaging and encouraged participants to ask questions. The group was given a tour of the cacao and coffee groves, tasted both dark and milk chocolates and Kona coffee, and was introduced to the process of soap making. My wife and I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to learn more about the chocolate and coffee making process from plant to finished process as well as appreciating the value of homemade soap.
    Felt so much love at this small farm
    Anthony_R, Mar 2024
    Greg and crew have such a wonderful farm! They were so warm and knowledgeable, it was a pleasure sharing the work that they're so passionate about. I learned a lot about the coffee, chocolate, and soap making process. It was neat to see how they made each part work together, so they minimized waste (not having to water is amazing)! Oh and all the samples were so good! I hope they keep up the great work and more people visit to support their farm.
    mulitple tours at once
    jscott1691, Feb 2024
    we were short on time so it was refreshing to be able to experience coffee, chocolate, and soap tours all at once. host was very entertaining and accommodating. shop was great with reasonable prices.
    Worth the trip
    Sharon_L, Feb 2024
    Our host, Greg, was very informative and personable. Nice grounds and gift shop. We had delicious coffee, chocolate chip cookies, and two different types of chocolate. All the employees were very nice.
    Don't miss this tour! It's more than amazing soaps.
    Micolyn_M, Feb 2024
    Greg is amazing. His knowledge of Island history, lore and customs is incredible. Then he adds in his extensive knowledge about environmentally sustainable farming, chemistry and science. Most importantly, he is funny and entertaining. This was our second time and it was still captivating and fun.
    Not your average coffee tour!
    Katie_K, Feb 2024
    Love, love, love this tour so much we brought family back to experience it! Greg, Marty and team provided a wonderful history of the property and how they transformed it into a lush, bio diverse property! Experience chocolate, coffee and the best soap ever!
    Loved it!
    bjfuhrmann56, Feb 2024
    Greg (owner) and Cynthia (docent) were knowledgeable, entertaining, compassionate and respectful. They clearly have passion for their business and for the island. The education in biodiversity inspired me to see what I can do at home. Highly recommend!
    Loved Kona Natural Soap Tour!
    Alison_G, Feb 2024
    Not only a great tour, but a truly delightful experience! It more than exceeded our expectations. We learned about coffee, chocolate and soap making, but also how Greg built the farm from scratch; quite an amazing and inspiring story. The fact he (with help from Kristina and others) led the tour made it even better. No surprise that all the reviews are 5 stars.
    Awesome tour
    Doug_J, Jan 2024
    Greg was awesome host - personable and full of interesting info. Well worth the price and visit - would visit again!

    Great experience!
    Glenn_H, Jan 2024
    Greg happily shared his knowledge about coffee, chocolate, soap and essential oils. Plus he was thrilled to do a short YouTube interview with our 8yr old son. Loved the whole experience. Great job!
