        As a mom who loves and appreciates nature so much, I should have booked just for myself since it’s an extremely pricey two hour tour.

        Ora_B, Feb 2024
        Our tour guide "T" was great! It is such a peaceful, relaxing, and informative tour. Very informative. The chocolate tasting is an unexpected, unique, and delicious spin on the nature walk!
        Not to be missed!
        Jodi_H, Feb 2024
        What an amazing experience! A memorable trek through dense beauty. T was the perfect guide. Very kind, extremely knowledgeable and cool as hell. Mahalo for your dedication and love to this fascinating planet.
        A beautiful must do while in Maui
        Jodi_H, Feb 2024
        We had the best time - once we actually found the location!! (gotta love the maps app :( ) T our guide was so fun and gave us the best tour. (minus the bugs BRING bug spray if mosquitos love you and mud haha) and we tasted some of the best chocolate ever! This is a must do when out in Maui! Totally head into a rainforest and end at a beautiful waterfall!
        Great experience!
        Debbie_A, Feb 2024
        T was an excellent tour guide! Do knowledgeable you would have thought he had been doing this for years! We enjoyed it all! The scenery, the chocolates, learning about all the different plants and just great conversation with T! Would definitely recommend!
        Exploring a rainforest with a knowledgeable person exceptional day
        Patty_G, Dec 2023
        Listening to the stories, the tour guy told, and his explanations of all the different plants and how they got there was very informative. Also enjoyed the chocolate tasting our tour guide was a delight.

        Our guide was so knowledgeable and lots of fun! The chocolate was amazing and the hike was so beautiful! Great tour!!!
        Great 👍
        Arnold_C, Sep 2023
        Our tour guide is well versed with the world of plants. The best part of our tour was the chocolate-making experience!
        Not what I expected
        Cynthia_N, Aug 2023
        Our tour guide was excellent. I love how informative and very interactive he is. However, I booked this thinking that we’ll be able to go to the waterfall and enjoy dipping our feet in the water. None of that happened. We looked at the waterfall from afar. It’s a short hike as well. The chocolate tasting was nice. If you’re looking to enjoy a waterfall, this would not be for you.
        Response from Host, Oct 2023
        Aloha Cynthia, Happy that you loved our guide, as you might know 99% of people love their time with us and their visit to this ancient Hawaiian historical site and the beautiful waterfall views. In regard to the waterfall, with the rise of global warming more and more people are being swept away at all waterfall locations to never be seen again or found to have passed away. Kindly note this is one of the main reasons we do not have people go to the waterfall for their Safty, and we are at an officially recognized safe distance to help keep people safe. Also The waterfall is in conservation used for farming and human consumption. And as this is a fund raiser for charity, we do state in all honesty state that it is "a mini waterfall hike with waterfall views" We are so sorry that you missed that in the description verbiage. Again over 99 % of people have a super Wonderul time. Have a nice rest of the day. The Kings Gardens Maui "Voted Best Of Maui"
        Best tour EVER!
        Greg_T, Jul 2023
        Ryan was the best tour guide I’ve ever met! His style of explaining the history of the area and his wealth of knowledge of plant life made this tour of of the best experiences I’ve ever had! My wife and I both said we loved the tour and Ryan made it very special for us! Ryan, you deserve a raise and I wish you all the success and happiness you can handle! Thank you from the bottom of mine and my wife’s hearts! What a wonderful experience we had!
        Fun time!
        Nancy_P, Jun 2023
        The guide was knowledgeable and fun. We learned a lot about Maui and chocolate. We would have liked a longer hike but it was close to Twin Falls. So, we hiked more there.
        Response from Host, Jun 2023
        Aloha Nancy, Mahalo for this wonderful review, yes ours is a mini hike as stated, and great for honeymoon couples and families. Happy you got a chance to go to the second waterfall location that your guide let you know about, as yes there the fun continues, and there it is a mini hike as well. Have a wonderful rest of the day! Mahalo
        Fun small group tour with beautiful scenery and chocolate tasting!
        Tina_B, Jun 2023
        Beautiful short hike with an amazing guide and lots of fun facts. Chocolate tasting was an added bonus! Would highly recommend this small group tour!
        Response from Host, Jun 2023
        Aloha Tina. Mahalo for this great review! And congratulations on being some of the most remarkable people on the planet those who enjoy doing good helping a good cause like ours even while on vacation.

        Lanette_R, May 2023
        The Guide (Antonio) was AWESOME! He was very friendly, knowledgeable with a very calming spirit about him. He is a perfect match for that job! The terrain was absolutely BEAUTIFUL and the pace of the walk allowed us to enjoy some of the Rain Forest's/Nature's Wonders. The only disappointment was the rudeness of the woman who answered the phone when ( even though I'd printed and highlighted the specific directions) my Uber driver got slightly off course. Fortunately we did find the meet up point and I did get to go on the hike because it was a true delight. I plan to go back and take Friends with me next year!
        Response from Host, May 2023
        Aloha Mahalo for the nice comments we train up all our guides to be the best they can be. Have a great rest of the day and mahalo again.
        An Unforgettable Experience!
        Alexander_B, May 2023
        My wife and I had been in Hawaii for 12 days when we decided to spend one of f or final two days taking the Private Waterfall & Rainforest Adventure In Magical Maui. Our tour guide, Kana, was the COOLEST, super knowledgeable, and friendly to the point we felt like we’d known him for years. Kana’s breadth of knowledge on how best to display the true magic of Maui, his sense of humor and ability to know his audience, made this afternoon adventure for my wife and I a truly memorable one that we will never forget. The chocolate tasting and going home knowing how to make our own healthy, free trade chocolate was an extra special bonus! I would recommend this tour in a heartbeat to anyone looking for a fun and informative afternoon trek in beautiful Maui!! Thank you!!!
        Response from Host, May 2023
        Wow mahalo for this awesome review! We really appreciate it as it really helps others know just how special and magical this location is! Have a great rest of the day!

        Kana was so much fun and very knowledgeable. It was such a beautiful hike and the chocolate making and tasting…. Yummm! Highly recommend!
        More rainforest than waterfall
        Heather_L, May 2023
        It was nice to see another part of the island rather than the beach. Beautiful plants and history of the area We saw a waterfall and we got a quick picture then had to move on. Couldn’t enjoy the beauty of it. There was another close waterfall and parking was $10! I also do not understand why you have to pay for the event then the guide asks for extra money? Just include it In the price please
        Response from Host, May 2023
        Mahalo for your feedback we did talk with your guide about not taking to both of the waterfall views and giving you more time to enjoy it. Deeply apologized about that, as the full tour there are two amazing waterfall views from the rainforest tropical gardens & you will see from over 99% of the visitors they all enjoyed the gorgeous waterfall views. If there is anything we can do to make this up to you let us know.
        Magical afternoon of beauty
        John_B, Apr 2023
        We were delighted and thrilled by our magical afternoon with a gentle hike into the rainforest and chocolate tasting. Kiva was friendly, fun, and knowledgeable about the King’s garden and taught us so much about chocolate. Highly recommend- this is a treatt!!
        Cindy_K, Apr 2023
        Absolutely amazing! Probably the best tour we did while in Maui! Our guide was so knowledgeable and made every bit of the money spent worth it! BEAUTIFUL country!
        Great, Educational Experience
        Beth_K, Mar 2023
        Our tour guide made us laugh until our bellies hurt. We learned so much about the history of Hawaii.
        Our memorable rainforest/chocolate making experience!
        Fredrick_D, Mar 2023
        Our guide was wonderful, very knowledgeable about the plant and animal life, very entertaining, as well! We loved the chocolate making process, one that I plan on using in the future. We wish there had been more than one waterfall from a distance, but other than that we all thoroughly enjoyed our experience!
        Response from Host, Mar 2023
        So happy you had a wonderful time here at the Kings Gardens Wilderness adventure and historical Walking tour with Fun Farm to table chocolate making. Yes waterfall is viewed from a safe distance with your safety in mind as with global warming there are more and more flash floods and each year so many lives are lost, so for your protection it is at a safe but captivating views and two enchanting view points. Much closer that even the Garden of Eden who view is more than a mile away ours 1000 times closer! Again mahalo for the great review! Have a fun rest of the day!
        Memorable laughs and learning.
        Marie_D, Mar 2023
        The guide Kana was funny and very knowledgeable. It was the most fun we’ve had on a trail this year.
