  • Absolutely magical! Will be visiting again if/when we come back to the island. I loved seeing all of the plants and getting to read their histories. Plus the layout and just views from and of the area are awesome.
  • This is a fabulous garden; this was our third trip. Your entrance fee includes a thorough and interesting guide book/ souvenir. If you are going to several National Tropical Botanical Gardens on Hawaii and Florida, consider purchasing a membership. My friend and I bought a dual membership and saved some money.
