Our 3-hour walking tour covers every corner of Princeville Botanical Gardens. 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 how chocolate is processed, while sampling delicious gourmet chocolates from around the world. This is a chocolate and garden experience unlike any other on Kauai.
Checkin times for our tours are 9:00 AM and 1:30 PM. You'll begin by exploring our upper terraces and the uses of the plants living there. In the Sacred Valley, you'll find exotic flowers, rare medicinals, and our happy honey hives. At the bottom of the valley, our small cacao grove thrives. Here you'll taste some raw chocolate nibs and learn about how chocolate is grown and harvested. When you leave the Sacred Valley, you'll head to our outdoor chocolate tasting area, where you'll learn about modern and historical chocolate processing methods. You'll sample at least 5 different single-origin chocolates from around the world. After relaxing in the shade and enjoying the chocolate, you're back on your feet to explore our Anini Creek valley, another wonderland of rare plants, stunning topography, and fascinating sustainable cultivation techniques. Throughout the tour you'll be surprised with samples of seasonal fruits.
