We are proud to announce our new culinary tour, A Taste of Kilohana. Designed by a foodie for foodies, this exclusive, guided tour offers a seasonal slice of Kilohana Plantation. Our tour includes an off-the-menu, three-course, locally-sourced meal that’s served in the Private Dining Room of Wilcox Mansion.

Our unique tour begins with a ride in a open-air train through the 105-acre orchard which has more than 50 varieties of exotic fruit trees.

Guests disembark and feed wild boar, goats and chickens and stroll through the orchard with Kai, Kilohana’s expert in local agriculture. After picking and eating exotic fruit, sit and relax as Kai demonstrates how to select and prepare tropical fruit, then taste the best of Kilohana in a super-fresh fruit salad.
