I stayed in Hilo, and I participated on this tour on the way to Waipio. It's only 20min drive from Hilo, and the place was beautiful. I loved the casual walk in the natural rain forest, and it was like being in the Jurassic Park movie. The waterfall was secluded and awesome. I'd recommend this to anyone and especially the ones with small kids.

We had the best tour ever, because we had the doctor himself give us the tour. We learned so much and tried every fruit you can ea...t as we toured the garden. As we enter acted with the Dr. We learned he was from where we lived and actually graduated at the same high school as my wife, twenty years before her though. We would recommend anyone to learn and tour this garden, it's well worth it. more
Very beautiful. Did the self guided and enjoyed itverymuch
I highly recommend the tour of the botanical garden. I opted for the in-person tour and it was well worth the cost. I got a priv...ate tour, with far more information than just being told about the plants. "Doc" was very knowledgeable about the plants and their origins. I learned a great deal and got to taste and smell many different varieties. As an added plus, your admission lets you come back for a week and walk around, see the waterfall, picnic, etc. more
