Whether you qualify for free admission (Hawaii resident) or are a visitor and will pay the Garden Special price of $35, we will check in at 1:30pm for the 2:00pm tour. As you may know, Kauai Residents are welcomed for FREE on Sundays, but you still need to reserve your spot with a credit card, and the charge will be waived by showing your Hawaii Driver's License or Hawaii State ID.
If you reserve a spot, but fail to show up, your credit card will be charged the full price.
You may call to make your reservation. [masked]-2623.
Or, you may reserve online on this page:
If you would like to go as part of this group, please RSVP, so we know who to expect and to look for you.
Reservations are limited to only 20 people on the tour, and I think half the seats are already reserved on the tram, so reserve soon if you want to go!
You may want to wear long pants and/or have insect repellent if you are bothered by mosquitoes. Sunscreen, hat and water are also recommended. Rain jacket? Well, whatever the weather looks like, be prepared to be outdoors for 2+ hours.
Just to let you know, the volunteers who give the tours and share their aloha and knowledge with us do accept gratuities, so even if your admission is free, bringing along a little mahalo money is good. There's also a gift shop with interesting and unique items, if you like to shop.
There are several tours in this garden, this is the Allerton one, not the McBride one or the Hoike Tour which covers both. On this tour, we will stop at the Moreton Bay Fig trees, if you are a Jurrassic Park fan, you'll recognize the roots as where the dinosaur eggs were found.
For those who are not familiar with the NTBG, the entrance is located off Lawai Road in the Poipu/Koloa area, across from the Spouting Horn parking lot.
