This attraction is one of very free on the island that is for adults and berry young children. Large grounds for touring and then very nice playground area for the kids. Lots of shade and place for them to play.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. Unfortunately I can't recall the guide's name, but she was originally from NY. She was enthusiastic, patient and very knowledgeable of the plants and history of the garden. This is more than just plants here the whole design and integration...More

Our family of seven adults did the Stroll/Ride at the Na Aina Kai Botanical Gardens with Linda as our driver and tour guide. Our entire group enjoyed the tour immensely. All of the different gardens and trees and creativity of the entire place was amazing!!

What a beautiful labor of love! This plot of land was purchased back in 1982, back then being nothing more than a red dirt field. Today, it is a lush and gorgeous botanic garden, complete with whimsical and creative sculptures that create a fun atmosphere...More

We enjoyed the walking tour through the botanical gardens at Na Aina Kai. Our favorite place on the property was the maze. We also loved the statues throught the garden and pond. We will be back someday!

This is not a bad tour at all, it's just not worth near the $50 price tag for the Stroll and Ride combo. It's as much about sculpture and the dreams and ambitions of the founders as it is about botanical specimens. The guides are...More

Started out as a Teak Wood plantation and grew into a beautiful botanical garden as well as a fabulous collection of bronze statuary. I highly recommend the tour. It is in small groups that ride in covered vehicles.

If you collect shelves of Hummel figurines, then this place is for you. If you like actual art, then head somewhere else. The art here is all sentimental and trite, without much artistic merit. The docent on our tour pretended to comment on the flora,...More

Sorry for the late response. I would think that infants would be allowed on the tram. You could always call and ask them. They are very friendly and helpful.

Not so much. But a lot depends on your family, including the young folks' attention spans and their interests. The children's playground and Navajo village was lovely, interesting as one stop on our tour, but it might not... More
