3-Hour Walking & Chocolate Tasting Tour

Child (Ages 7-16)
Kid (Ages 6 & Under)

2018 Hanalei Flood Update: Princeville Botanical Gardens remains open for business on our regular schedule of 3-hour tours. However, half of our gardens are currently closed for trail repairs and will not be seen on the tour until at least the end of April. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your support of the North Shore community during this crisis.


Your friendly guide will share stories of the gardens’ development and a wealth of fascinating information about the plants. Seasonal fruit samples and homemade honey will keep your energy up as you explore our valleys.

This tour includes a 1/2-hour chocolate tasting during which you’ll learn about the cacao tree and the history of chocolate making, while sampling delicious gourmet chocolates from around the world. Due to the length, we do not recommend the tour for children under 6 years.
